Need to relax and unwind without the expense of a spa day? Try our three simple steps to transform your bathroom into a haven of tranquillity.
1) Back to basics
Feng Shui experts have long championed the benefits that a minimalist home can have on the mind, so strip your bathroom back to a bare minimum for a serene refuge in which to escape the stresses and strains of daily life. Décor should be neutral, clean, clear and natural. Get rid of fussy details and opt for a few well-placed ornaments, such as a water feature - often found in spas.
2) Attention to detail
Creating a luxurious spa feeling at home is all about attention to little details and it needn’t cost the earth.
With just a few carefully selected, authentic items you can turn your bathroom into a relaxing haven worthy of the most exclusive retreats.Little touches like a few well-placed spa products, fresh flowers, plants or aromatherapy fragrant candles and diffusers will all create the multi-sensory ambience associated with an expensive day spa. Take it one step further by filling some clear glass jugs with fruit and herb infused water.
3) Invest in comfort
Any spa experience begins with a robe, but a top tip for recreating an authentic experience is that the robe needs to be generously sized and superb quality so that it can be washed time and time again – like our ‘Palermo’ lined waffle robe, which is made from the most sumptuous natural and organic materials. The waffle exterior is lined with thick, fluffy towelling on the inside and a shawl collar and deep turn back cuffs create the snuggly and decadent feeling you only get in a health spa.
Like with robes, when it comes to towels, bigger is better for an indulgent feel. Invest in a collection of thick and super absorbent white towels that will feel as good as new wash after wash.
