If you are like me with fitness and health topping your list in 2016, then you won’t want to miss this blog regarding building your own luxury at-home spa. Whether you’re looking to hydrate, treat or just chill out, check out these 7 steps to bringing the spa experience home from Decoist Magazine.
- Use Neutral Colors
Relax and make sure your at home spa’s main color is something that creates the mood when you dim the lights.
- It’s The Water
Forget the bath, jet, or whirlpool tub. Instead think big with a small spa pool.
- Wall to Floors
Think easy to use, easy to clean, and beautiful to look at when you are selecting the right walls and floors for your at-home spa. Again keep to calming tones.
- Places to Lounge
Place small side tables accented by comfy, ergonomically designed lounge chairs to create an intimate seating arrangement that will embrace you and your friends in peace.
- A Place for Your Massage
Do yourself a favor and include these top of the line massage tables.
- Bathroom Amenities
Privacy meets practicality when it comes to the spa bathroom. Build it near the spa but don’t have it open into the area. Inside the adjacent bathroom, closet the toilet in a separate area.
- Storage That’s Stylish
You’ll need a place for all the white rolled towels, jars of honey, cucumber eye masks, robes for your friends, the list goes on. Include lots of open shelving.
