Creating a luxury spa at home

A popular trend in contemporary bathroom design is creating a home spa vibe. Bathrooms are no longer just used for personal care but, understood as a place where people relax and unwind from a hard or stressful day.

A spa day or weekend is often about providing the ultimate relaxation, which has caused an increase in homeowners bringing this spa concept into their home. A home spa bathroom is a perfect way to create a peaceful retreat in your home that helps to encourage good health and wellbeing and reduce stress. In this blog, we discuss our top tips on how you can create a luxurious spa-like bathroom in your home.

Spa-like bathroom décor

A great way to create a spa-like vibe with a limited budget is to add spa-style décor, for example, luxury bathrobes, slippers, and luxurious fluffy Egyptian cotton towels. Candles and scented essential oils can also help create a spa-like feel, for example, aromatherapy candles are a great way to infuse a room with a calm serenity. Investing in luxury bath cosmetics such as cleansers and bath creams is an excellent place to start.


To create a relaxing mood and a spa-like experience, natural lighting is essential. Ensuring you have big windows can be a vital element to your bathroom design, however, if natural light isn’t achievable full-spectrum lightbulbs are a perfect alternative. Dimmer switches are also a great option by allowing you to adjust the lighting regardless of the time of day to alter the mood.


One of the most substantial appeals to a day or weekend at the spa is the opportunity to relax in a hot tub or an overly large bath. Contemporary bathroom design now includes an extensive range of whirlpool baths for all bathrooms with a varying number of massaging jets, wellness, and chromotherapy systems to create a more indulgent spa-like bathing experience. Many bath companies can now also incorporate Bluetooth, sound systems, and TVs into your bathroom design - helping to create the ultimate relaxation zone.


Saunas and steam showers are another major appeal of a weekend away at the spa by including a steam shower in your bathroom design, emulating the feeling of sitting in a sauna from the comfort of your own home. Waterfall showerheads can create an invigorating shower experience that can help wash away stress, tension and awaken the senses. Body jets are also a perfect addition to your shower by creating a smoothing massaging effect that perfectly complements a waterfall shower head. Including a modern steam shower in your bathroom design will also provide new thermostatic controls that allow you to have better control over temperature and water flow to create a shower that perfectly suits your mood.
