Bathe in bliss from the comfort of your own home.
We've all been there. On a visit to a tranquil and luxurious spa when you stop to think, “Maybe I could live here?” Mid-way through your facial, your state of inner bliss is only interrupted by thoughts on how you can take some of this feeling home with you.
The reality is that while moving into a spa permanently isn't an option, there are ways to incorporate elements of decor and styling that bring the same level of tranquillity to your home bathroom. From easy organising hacks to bigger bathroom upgrades – whatever your budget – there are ways to go about enjoying the bliss and benefits of a spa experience in your own home at the end of a long day.
Want to create your home spa? Below are some suggestions from Versatile, Ireland’s leading supplier of beautiful bathroom and tile brands, on exactly how to do it.
Plants have a unique way of making a room feel more inviting and sophisticated, and the bathroom is no exception. Make like you're in a private spa at a tropical resort and bring some leafy greens into your bathroom. Try switching things up between plant size and type for variation. If natural light isn't something your bathroom is blessed with, some faux greenery will do the job too.
Dim The Lights
Despite wanting our bathrooms to be places of refuge, all too often we flood them with cold and harsh lighting. The power of lighting to be able to create a calming atmosphere should never be underestimated and for the most instantaneous way to up the zen ante while you're soaking in the tub or simply doing your nighttime skincare routine, dot some candles around the space and switch off the main overhead light.
Store Your Essentials
You might have more products than you could ever possibly use (we’ve been there too!), but keep things organised and out of sight by installing some great storage solutions in your bathroom. Wall-hung cabinets give the illusion of more space whilst keeping your bits and bobs neatly tucked away, but whatever you choose, make sure you opt for quality, water-resistant materials.
Introduce spa elements to your shower
Simply adding individual elements to your shower can provide specific solutions to relax or revitalise. Opting for a Kneipp affusion pipe, for instance, allows you to treat your legs, arms & face, providing benefits including firming the skin and encouraging sleep. Adding a water curve massage jet provides a harmonising neck and shoulder massage, with the impact of Aquapressure helping to ease tenseness in muscles. Or treat the senses with a shower experience that includes built-in modes such as rain, mist, mood light and fragrances.
Add Some Steam
For the complete wellness experience, enjoy the restorative power of water with a steam bath that uses the latest smart technology. The Effe Touch & Steam is a stylish compact professional steam generator – suitable for any shower or Hammam. An elegant panel of silk-screened tempered glass conceals state-of-the-art technology providing perfect steam bath functions including steam generation, chromotherapy, aromatherapy, music and touch-screen backlit icons.
Make A Tile Statment
Just because the flooring in your bathroom needs to meet certain practical standards doesn't mean that it should be purely functional. From muted textured tiles to ones that are bold and bright, what you choose to put on the floor (and the walls) can elevate the space with a considered sense of sophisticated.Versatile offers a diverse range of tiling options, including glass, metal, marble, mosaic and the on-trend subway tiles.
