Simple Tricks to Transform your Bathroom into a Spa

At the end of a long week, there’s nothing that says “me time” more than indulging yourself in an evening of self-care with an at-home pamper session in your own personal spa. 

Introduce Christy’s simple tricks to transform your bathroom into a tranquil spa of your own.

Soothing aromatherapy for your at-home spa

Aromatherapy is a powerful tool that can be used to trigger emotional and physical responses and is used to help change your state of mind and lift your mood. There are many stylish and effective ways to introduce scents into your bathroom to create a relaxing, soothing spa-like experience.

Candles are probably the most popular choice as they give a soft flicker and glow whilst releasing delicate aromas into the atmosphere. There are many soothing scents available in candles specifically designed to relax and calm the mind. 

Bathroom-friendly candle alternatives

A great alternative to candles is oil burners. With just a small tea light, a few drops of essential oil and water, your oil burner will be filling your luxury bathroom with delicious scents. And with so many oil burners being created in so many styles you’re guaranteed to find one to match your style.

If you’re into ritualistic practises, you’ll likely have some incense sticks already in your home. Incense sticks make a great addition to your spa day and can bring peace and mindfulness to your self-care session.

Our favourite, flame-free option for introducing scents into your bathroom is using a diffuser. They come in many different shapes, sizes and colours and there’s a style to suit everyone’s idea of a spa. Simply add your favourite soothing essential oils and water and you’ll have a delicate, refreshing scent in your bathroom for hours.

Refresh your bathrobe

Nothing says spa quite like a crisp white, irresistibly soft, plush cotton bathrobe. Christy has a large and luxurious collection of cotton bathrobes for you to create your very own spa at home. 

Our Spa Robe in the classic white colourway is perfect for emulating the feel of a spa environment. Our luxurious robes are made using the highest quality cotton in the softest blends for an indulgent embrace use after use. 

We also have 100% Egyptian cotton robes in neutral, calm shades, environmentally friendly Supreme Velour robes in a variety of colours and our lusciously plush Super Soft Cosy Bath Robe. Click here to view our entire robe collection.

Adding a touch of the tropics with houseplants

Houseplants add life to any room and emulate a tropical, lush environment in your bathroom that screams luxury spa. There are a few houseplants of different sizes and types that will thrive in your bathroom, even in low light conditions – and they’ll cleanse your air, too!

We recommend –

  • A spider plant; notorious for its easy care will thrive in humid environments, this little plant comes in a few varieties such as the curly Bonnie or the striking Zebra variation.
  • Palms such as Kentia and Chamaedorea Elegans will look luscious in larger bathrooms. These palms are easy to care for, even easier to find and are beginner-friendly.
  • Small vining plants such as pothos and philodendrons look majestic hung above baths and come in colours such as the white Marble Queen pothos and yellow and green Basil philodendron variation.
  • Large vining plants such as the Monstera Deliciousa or the smaller variant, the Borsigiana will love a space in your bathroom – so long as you have adequate space and light. These monsteras will thrive with the high humidity and warmth.

Another way to add a refreshing scent to your bathroom is by hanging fresh eucalyptus in your shower. A bundle of eucalyptus will keep for some time and release an invigorating scent into the air every time you take a hot shower.

Choosing foliage over fauxliage will give a more luxurious and luscious indoor spa garden aesthetic that gives back to you with abundance in growth, pure air and fresh green leaves.

Freshen up your towels and bathmats

Much like our robes, our towels are luxurious and soft and add a sense of freshness and serenity that we love from our most high-end spas. Bring home the sense of opulent luxury with our cotton towels and bath mats. 

Our matching towel and bathmats create a cohesive feel in your bathroom that add warmth and softness without distracting the eye, creating the perfect tranquil space for you to lose track of time and relax. 

If you love everything to match, our Brixton includes bath and shower mats, towels and bathrobes. Or, if you want to sink your feet into a deep, soft pile then you’ll love our 100% cotton, environmentally friendly Deep Pile bath rugs that come in beautiful, calm colours and tones.

Calm colours for a calm mind

Much like aromatherapy, colours have a strong impact on your state of mind and can help shift your mood. In the bathroom, opt for calm tones in shades of greens, browns and blues, or if you want to keep it fresh and clean, opt for a soft, bright white shade.

Our Luxe 100% Turkish cotton towels are available in soothing tones that would translate beautifully as wall paint. We love French Grey and Surf for bathrooms!

Declutter and decant for clearer counters

A great way to transform your bathroom into a tranquil space of relaxation and luxury is to give your bathroom a deep clean, a declutter and to decant your products! Having a professional come in to thoroughly clean your bathroom from head to toe will give your bathroom a brand new feel for you to create your home spa.

Decluttering bathroom countertops and reducing visual clutter is an easy way to improve the overall look and feel of your bathroom. To take it to the next level, consider decanting your essential products into brown glass bottles for a cohesive look.

Update your fixtures and showerhead

New fixtures and fittings are an affordable way to update your bathroom and give it a full facelift. Gold accents give that spa feel we all strive for without the spa expense. 

Or if gold isn’t your thing, simple black handles are sleek and minimal which help to reduce visual distractions. Upgrading your showerhead will also bring new life into your bathroom with little cost and effort.
