Forget your bedroom, your bathroom should be the most soothing sanctuary in your home - the place you can escape, unwind, and de-stress. It’s the natural home for your most-used skincare and favorite soothing bath products, so it’s already halfway there when it comes to emulating a spa, but there are certain pieces of decor that can give it even more of a spa-like feel - because who wouldn’t want to feel like they’ve escaped to a luxurious sanctuary every time they enter their bathroom?

How can I decorate my bathroom like a spa?

Accessories using natural materials like textured stoneware, wood, linen, and organic cotton instantly emulate the feel of a relaxing spa. While the odd touch of gold will add a luxe touch to the overall aesthetic, it’s a good idea to stick to organic materials for the main bulk of your bathroom decor.

In terms of color, stick to neutral, earthy, and monochrome tones. A bold pop of color or artistic design (while pleasing to the eye) will often over-stimulate the senses, which is pretty much the opposite to what we’re aiming to achieve here.

Finally, don’t forget to treat all your senses to the relaxing experience. Scented accessories like the candle and diffusers we’ve highlighted above won’t just add to your bathroom’s spa-like aesthetic, but they’ll also make you feel instantly more relaxed.
