When you need a break after a long day, you should have at least one room in your house where you know you can relax. For many people in North Scottsdale, that room is their bathroom, but only because they have turned it into a soothing space that’s reminiscent of a spa. If that sounds good to you, check out these five simple ways you can improve the bathroom in your North Scottsdale home.
First Step: Choose soothing shades for your walls
The easiest way to get a more peaceful bathroom is to paint the walls a soothing color. Blue is among the best choices, because it’s known for evoking a tranquil feel. A soft green, such as sage, can do the same. Brown is another calming hue for the bathroom in your North Scottsdale home. But if you don’t feel like adding too much color to your bathroom, you can stick to lighter shades, such as cream, to get a calm, spa-like feel.
Second Step: Get the right light
Another way to get a relaxing bathroom is to use the right lighting. Save the bright spotlights for your driveway, and install dim lights in your bathroom to get a soothing glow. Warm, diffused white lighting is usually best for this. You can even use a dimmer switch to get just the right amount of illumination in your bathroom, especially over the soaking tub. For an added touch, be sure to have plenty of candles nearby, ready to use when you want to unwind after work.
Third Step: Hang up high-quality towels
One of the fastest, most budget-friendly, ways to improve the look of your bathroom is to hang up several plush towels. Choose colors that complement the rest of the room. Monogrammed towels are even better, if you have them, since they can create a luxurious look in the bathroom of your North Scottsdale home. Finding soft bathroom rugs that match your towels is a bonus.
Fourth Step: Add natural accents
If you want your next bath to be reminiscent of a trip to the hot springs, surround yourself with natural décor. The easiest way to start is by adding wooden accents to your bathroom. You can simply put up pictures and inspirational phrases in wooden frames, or you can add a wooden bench to your shower or tub. If you want a slightly bigger project, you can install wooden slats on one or more bathroom walls. Another way to connect with nature is to install a pebbled tile floor, or at least buy a pebble bathroom mat or two.
Fifth Step: Improve your bathtub
A new freestanding soaking tub is one of the fastest ways to give the bathroom in your North Scottsdale home a makeover. But if you’re not ready to install new fixtures, the next best thing is a jet bath spa, which is a small gadget that you can put in your bath to create bubbles and even a whirlpool effect. Add a bath pillow, some candles, and a fluffy robe, and you’ve got the recipe for a soothing spa day at home!
