4. Decorative accessories
Add a few personal touches to an at home spa with a couple of decorative accessories. The designer here added a couple of details that transforms the space. A few flowers are used as decor, perched next to the black wall. Flowers are very calming and relaxing, and a great way to bring the feeling of nature indoors. It's a good idea to include a few flowers in a home spa. The mirror here too is a great decorative accessory. It has a fun shape, almost in the shape of a sun, that adds a unique character to the bathroom. Even the wall art here, large floral designs, add a nice touch to the bathroom to create an overall mood and experience that feels like a spa retreat.
Tiles of course are very important in any bathroom. When choosing tiles for a spa bathroom at home its important to be very strategic with colour and design. Don't choose anything too loud as it will take away from the soothing affects a spa should have. These bathroom tiles are a great example of the look you should strive for. The shower tiles are a cool mosaic pattern using a light palette with the colours of greens and blues. These two colours are extremely relaxing and perfect for a spa. The rest of the bathroom uses white tiles which keeps the space light and airy, and coupled with the blues and greens of the shower, provides a perfect set up for an at home spa.
6. Perfect floor
Lastly, lets not forget about proper flooring when creating a spa bathroom for a home. This bathroom certainly looks like its from the pages of an elegant magazine or top spa in a regal hotel. Bring this look home with large marble tiles for the floor. Marble is such a grand, elegant look, it will create the perfect spa atmosphere. Stick with a light colour palette, like this bathroom, to keep the room bright and airy. A grey and white palette is perfect for a spa bathroom, and the marble just makes it that much more luxurious. Feel like a million bucks when stepping into a spa bathroom right at home by using marble for the floor.
