    1. De-clutter. Nothing inhibits a relaxing atmosphere more than clutter! You want this space to be simple and clean, not busy and overbearing. Take the time to get rid of items you no longer need, organize the items you do, and start with a clean slate.

    2. Choose muted, soft colors. As in the photo above, they chose tile with a very soft, earthy color. Soothing colors will work best for creating your spa bathroom. Look for blues, greens, beiges, tans, and white.

    3. The right lighting: Natural light is always best, so take advantage of your windows. If that is not an option opt for soft lighting fixtures or vanity lamps -nothing too bright or harsh. You may even want to invest in a dimmer switch.

    4. Spa tubs: If you really want to create a spa experience, look at investing in a spa tub or jacuzzi.This is an upgrade that will add worth to your home and allow you to enjoy immensely! Jacuzzi tubs come in so many sizes, styles and prices to fit what is best for you.

    5. Add accessories. Strategically placed candles set a relaxing ambiance very quickly. You may want to look for bamboo and other “earthy accessories” to give the room interest, yet remain serene and light. An idea might be to get glass hurricane vases and fill with pebbles and seashells.

    6. Use all of your senses. Now that you have the look of your bathroom, be conscious about the aromas and your comfort! Lavender and chamomile are lovely scents that promote relaxation. Also, look for soft, terry towels or robes. All of your senses add to the spa experience!
