How To Give Your Bathroom That Luxury Makeover

We all spend an inordinate amount of time in our bathrooms. That is the reason it is one of the rooms that people take a lot of notice of when they are viewing possible new homes. A bathroom needs to feel like an experience to many of us; it is somewhere to retreat to, relax and let the stress of the day disappear. It is therefore worth making that little bit of extra effort to make it feel like a luxury environment. Here are some suggestions for creating that'spa moment in your own home.

Install a Steam Shower:

You would be amazed at the way showering technology has moved on. Gone are the days of dragging yourself out to the local gym so that you can use their spa and enjoy their steam room. You can now install a steam shower of your own and for probably a lot less cost than you thought. Steam showers are versatile and come in many shapes and sizes and with many different options. There will be one that will suit your bathroom and budget. Just how luxurious do you want to go? Give some consideration to your lifestyle. Do you need just a shower? How about a steam shower and spa bath combination. Dependent on the size of your bathroom and your actual needs there are any number of options available to you.


Make Sure the Lighting is Perfect:

Part of the luxury bathroom experience is relaxing in an ambient light. There are many options available to you as regards the lighting in your bathroom. It is important to capture the right mood. There are also several different ways to get the lighting that you want. It does not have to be all ceiling lights. For instance an Insignia steam shower quite often has lighting built into it, sometimes even with the option of colour changes to suit your mood. There are also many different styles of light fitting that are suitable for bathrooms. Add to that'some scented candles and you have the perfect getaway.

Beautiful Accessories:

You may well have a beautiful bathroom with all of the modern day technology that you can throw at it, but if you don't make the most of it with perfect accessorising you are losing out. For that ultimate spa experience you want to be wrapping yourself in the thickest of Egyptian cotton towels and stepping onto flooring or mats which your feet jump with joy at. The last thing you want when you step out of your steam shower is to step onto a slippery service and end up on the floor. Think about the practicalities and give yourself the best accessories to meet them.
