How to Create Your Own Spa Bathroom

about kitchens and baths spa bathrooms

Create a spa bathroom with features like neutral colors, a free-standing tub, and a luxurious shower head.

If you enjoy a spa’s soothing, cleansing benefits, you don’t have to save those spa trips for special days. By installing your own spa bathroom, you can create a space in your home to unwind, relax, and take your mind off of everyday stress. When you remodel your bathroom with About Kitchens and Baths, we can recommend the best features that help create a luxurious and soothing spa experience. By selecting the right colors, lighting, and water fixtures, you can create a space that soothes and cleanses every day.

Select Calming Colors

The color scheme is one of the first things to consider as you design your spa bathroom. Select calming colors inspired by nature, such as brown, gray, and green. This will help you create the soothing environment you associate with a spa. Use neutral colors like beige, light gray, or pale green if you have a smaller space. These lighter shades are soothing but also help your bathroom feel more spacious. 

Simplify and Avoid Patterns

Next, keep the details and designs to a minimum. Loud, busy patterns will not create a soothing atmosphere. Avoid loud, obvious patterns when you can, and stick to simple details like large tiles and complementary neutral colors. 

Dimmer Controls

Lighting is a crucial factor when creating a spa bathroom. Install various lighting fixtures, including recessed lighting and wall sconces that can be controlled with dimmer switches. When you use a dimmer switch, you can soften your lighting to any level and create a calm, spa-like atmosphere when you want to soak in the tub. This is highly preferable to installing one overhead bathroom light with only one setting. 

Install a Soaking Tub

Free-standing or soaking tubs are one way to create a spa bathroom in your home. If you have the square footage, investing in a free-standing tub will do a lot to boost the luxury of your bathroom. The distinctive style of this tub will make an impact, and the relaxation it provides is unbeatable. You may also install a jacuzzi with relaxing jets. If you don’t have enough room for a free-standing tub, your contractor at About Kitchens and Baths can help you determine the potential placement for an alcove tub deep enough to soak in. 

Luxury Shower Heads

If you prefer a shower or only have space for a shower in your bathroom, you can still enjoy luxurious and spa-like features. A rainfall showerhead is the most luxurious option, as this large shower head gently showers you with a wide overhead stream of water. However, sometimes rainfall shower heads do not apply enough water or pressure to be used for everyday showering but instead are meant for relaxation. Try pairing the soothing elements of your rainfall shower head with a handheld shower feature for your everyday cleaning.
