Clutter can make any space feel stressful and unorganized. Remove anything that you don’t use daily and get creative when displaying toiletries. Try placing rolled towels in a hand-woven basket and a clear glass jar to hold cotton balls. Organizing and styling your makeup and toiletries is a great way to give your ensuite a quick makeover

Nothing is worse then getting out of a relaxing hot shower stepping onto ice cold tiled floor and into a limp towel. Consider installing in floor heating and adding a towel warming rack with plush soft towels.

Scents are a great way to boost your mood and health. Although it’s great to be surrounded by romantic candles, oil diffusers will ensure both scent and safety. Try lavender or jasmine for a soothing atmosphere.

Calming colors

Colors have a huge impact on the mood of a space. By selecting neutral tones such as beige, white and greys will ensure your ensuite is a relaxing environment. Strong accents and bright colorful shower curtains will take away from the calming spa-like atmosphere you are trying to create.

Shower Head

If your bathroom doesn’t have room for a soaker tub you can still achieve a spa like atmosphere by updating your shower. An open and simplistic shower design with a massage shower head will make your ensuite feel spacious and luxurious.

Bring nature inside!

Adding houseplants and flowers into your bathroom is a great way to add life to your bathroom while still giving it a relaxing and tranquil setting. Try filling a vase with fresh flowers, hanging a potted plant from the ceiling or setting potted plants around the bathroom to embrace natural elements.

Turning your ensuite in a spa retreat is easier than you think. With just a few bathroom renovations and additions, you can immediately turn your bathroom into a personal oasis, even if it’s short on space.
