A bathroom is not just a part of your daily routine. It can be the place that you coax yourself out of stupor in the mornings, get clean, and relax in the evenings. Since this room holds such importance, surely it is time to give it an upgrade. Don’t worry, you don’t have to spend a fortune. However, making these changes will certainly help you to enjoy your showers and other routines a great deal more. Here is what you can do:
Create a Mini Spa
Do you use your shower to relax as well as clean yourself after a long day? If so, what you really need is a steam shower. This really will be like having a spa in your own bathroom. You can treat yourself to a cleansing steam, massaging jets of water, rain showers, and lots more. The best part of this is that it is all located in one space. This will even work well if you have a relatively small bathroom. You will certainly be able to feel rejuvenated after a short period spent in this setup.
Setup an Entertainment Centre
Most people take their smartphones or tablets into the bathroom anyways so why not create a more permanent solution. What you actually include in your entertainment center depends on your budget and how much space you have. If you don’t want to spend too much money, including some waterproof Bluetooth speakers will be more than enough. If you are looking for a bit more of an upgrade, you can try mounting a flat television screen opposite your bathtub.
Heat Up the Floor
There is nothing worse than stepping out of a warm bath only to step on cold tile. This can send a chill through your body, completely ruining your earlier warmth. This is particularly common during the winter season. To avoid this, you can use heating mats or other materials beneath your floor. This will warm up the floor for you, without being too hot to handle. It can also keep the overall temperature in the bathroom at a comfortable level as well.
Create a Skylight
It is quite possible that your bathroom is one of the most poorly lit places in your home. Even though you may have plenty of light bulbs around, you could be severely lacking in natural light. There are numerous benefits to letting in more sunlight into your bathroom, including offering up a mood boost every morning. If your windows are too small, you could try enlarging them, creating a picture window. Or, even better, create a spotlight. Try to have one above your sink (and mirror) or bathtub for maximum effect.
Use Glass Doors
If you are finding your shower curtain largely useless or it’s just not creating the right ambience your bathroom, there is a solution. Try using glass doors instead. These look more sophisticated, are easier to clean, and can even make your bathroom look larger than it actually is.
These are the many ways that you can take your bathroom to the next level. Why not try them all?
