Your home should be a place where you can relax after a busy day at work. And if you don’t have the time to go to the sauna weekly, indulge in a home spa treatment. Pour out some Epsom salt. Our expert designers have these tips to help transform your bathroom into a home spa.
Marble works well in almost any room in the home. But nothing beats marble in the bathroom. In this mid-century house on the Upper East Side, we covered the walls and floors with Carrara marble for a luxurious and spa-like feel.
You should have plants in every room in the house. And if you want to create a personal spa for the home, you should definitely have it in the bathroom too. Eucalyptus is a mildly scented plant with healing properties released by steam and is perfect for your bathroom.
A spa is a place of simplicity and relaxation, not clutter. So make sure you have enough storage space in your bathroom for towels, toiletries and Epsom salts.
If your idea of a good time includes a glass of wine and a book, consider a bamboo bath caddy. We especially like this expandable from Toilet Tree. With a book stand and trivet, it’s perfect for any size tub.

If you’re trying to create a spa-like environment in your bathroom, start by painting your walls a soothing, neutral color. Bright, flashy colors and patterns have no place in your bathroom. A light gray or satin white is the perfect color to set the tone for your relaxing home spa.
Side table stool
Wooden stools are wonderful multifunctional pieces. And they work just as well in the bathroom as they do in any other area of the home. Whether you need a place to take off your shoes or want to put down a bag of Epsom salts, a wooden side table is perfect for the bathroom.

Wooden bath mat
The more wood you have in your bathroom, the better. And if your fabric bath mat can do with a refresh, consider a wood option. It stays dry and lasts much longer than a fabric option. We particularly like the Lateral Teak Bath Mat from CB2.

When transforming your bathroom into a personal spa, you need to find ways to add luxurious and personalized accents. A glass chandelier like the one we placed in this luxury Miami Beach apartment, is a perfect way to add a chic and luxurious touch to your bathroom.
When trying to indulge in a spa treatment at home, it can be difficult to relax with the lights on. Install dimmers in your bathroom and you can instantly put yourself in spa mode.
