How To Make Your Bathroom Feel Like A Spa

Truly, the best part about our “Super Shower" are the wall jets.  The benefits of having a super shower are the dual shower heads, a built in bench and hands down, the wall shower jets!  However, you don't need fancy wall jets or dual shower heads to create a spa experience.  Read how I made our bathroom feel like a spa and have fun transforming your bathroom into one too!

I envisioned a relaxing, soothing and calm atmosphere.  Not a lot of bright light but enough light, when needed. I love to shower because its convenient, quick, easier than taking a bath and it’s like one stop shopping, where you can bathe, shave and wash your hair, all at the same time! 

There's no need for you to spend a lot of money for a spa experience you can create right in your own home. Most times, I shop at Target, Home Goods, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Kohl’s, Bed, Bath and Beyond and JC Penney, when decorating and refreshing our bathroom.  These stores have great selections and every now and then, I can catch a good sale.  Condition yourself to mix the less costly items with the more pricey items, so you are not spending a lot of money to create your spa experience.  Look for clearance and discontinued items.  Additionally, Home Goods, Marshalls and TJ Maxx are winners for “brand names for less”. 
Here are some starters for you!  Don’t get too relaxed while reading this (smile)!!

Warm to Moderately Hot Water (Steaming & Streaming from your Shower Head and/or Jets)
Wash Cloth

Body Spray and Candles (Bath and Body Works has great fragrance selections)
Centerpiece filled with aromas of your favorite potpourri
Spa Cleansing Products (look for mint creams and oils, sea salt scrubs, lavender and chamomile salts, eucalyptus scrubs and oatmeal and honey bath soaps – all of these are good for revitalizing the skin and also good with opening up your nasal passages)
White Towels (I just love white towels, especially for my Spa time)
Bathrobe and Slippers (treat yourself to a bathrobe and slippers used strictly for Spa Time – get something soft!)
Spa Rocks and Wooden Massager (This is really taking it to the next level...Go ahead, go there!  You deserve it!)
Smart Device (set the ambience as your device plays soft music from your playlist)
Glass of Spring Water with fresh mint and lemon or lime
