Transforming your bathroom into a spa

If you want to create a relaxing atmosphere for your bathroom then it may be a good idea to transform it into a spa area. If you are looking for real luxury and have a lot of money to spare, then you may wish to buy a whirlpool bath. These come with a variety of features to help you relax, including headrests, Jacuzzi systems, handheld showers, water heaters and much more. These types of baths look great and are ideal for stylish bathrooms.

If you wish to transform your bathroom into a spa but are on a tight budget, then there are a variety of products you can by to create a spa effect. Scented candles, fluffy towels and aromatherapy products are great way of pampering yourself without having to go too overboard on the spending.

Also great for creating a spa effect are heated towel racks. These will provide comfort for you when you step out into the cold after your bath. Placing your heaters on a timer will also allow you to have a warm, comfortable room before you have bath, which is ideal for cold mornings and when you arrive home from work and just want to relax.

You may wish to buy a spa set. These can be expensive, but are much more affordable then going to great lengths to transform your bathroom. These sets include a variety of luxury products for your body, such as milk and honey products, body butter and much more. If you have sensitive skin, then stick to unscented products. These can be just as effective.



If you have the space available, it may be worth thinking very seriously about adding a sauna to your bathroom. Saunas have been popular ever since Roman times, as a method of ridding the body of toxins. It is also a fabulous way to relax and unwind after a long hard day at work and is perfect for soothing those tired muscles.

You might choose to go for a traditional Finnish style sauna, which is the most common type and is essentially a steam room, heated by water being splashed onto very hot rocks. 

Alternatively, there are the infrared saunas, which are less common, but are very effective. In an infrared sauna, the air is warmed and the heater also infiltrates the skin, resulting in perspiration. The heat relaxes the whole body, so the benefits are similar to that of the Finnish sauna.

The addition of a sauna can transform your bathroom into a real spa experience and will certainly help make your bathroom stand out from your neighbours. Although space is undoubtedly an issue, saunas can be installed as compact steam rooms, which will often also house a shower. This feature enables even a relatively small bathroom to become home to a sauna. These products aren’t cheap, but recent technological advances have ensured that they are within the reach of most homeowners and will certainly be quite an investment for your home. If you are confident enough, you can even buy sauna kits, so that you can do the installation work yourself.
