Most of us deserve the occasional indulgence. For the most part, we work too hard, for too long and for too little reward and by the time most of us get home all we want to do is to collapse into a couch and maybe curl up into the fetal position.
We deserve a little bit of time to ourselves then where we can feel real good and treat ourselves. Not only is it important to have something to actually look forward to once you get back from work, but it’s also crucial for your health. If you never take a break and if you never actually relax and enjoy yourself then your body will be constantly ‘amped up’ and eventually this is a quick way to give yourself an aneurism.
One of the best ways to ensure that you can really relax and enjoy yourself at the end of the day then is to create the bet bathroom you can. Bathrooms are designed specifically to be indulgent and therapeutic and to not just help us get clean, but also to relax our muscles and help us to forget all our day’s worries. Here we will look at some of the ways you can make your bathroom more relaxing so that you can really get the rest when you need it.
Keep Things Clean
The first and most important thing is to ensure that the bathroom stays clean. It’s remarkably difficult to relax and unwind if you’re spending time in a room that’s covered in grime, mold and spilled products so you need to take some time to regularly give the place a clean if you want it to be at all indulgent and calming.
The Right Design
Meanwhile you need to make sure that your bathroom has the best design to help you feel at ease. Everyone is going to have a different idea of what makes a highly attractive bathroom, but essentially you need to make sure that the space feels light, spacious and clean. One way to ensure this is by using light colors – plane and lightly colored tiles for instance will reflect more light and not look as ‘busy’ as tiles with patterns. Likewise, you want to use a layout that will ensure you have plenty of space to move around the bathroom that gives you lots of floor space. This means choosing the right fittings and it means placing them correctly so that there’s lots of room between them. If this doesn’t describe your bathroom then you might want to look into bathroom remodeling.
The Right Bath and Shower
Of course having the right bath and shower is also important. A spa tub with bubble jets for instance can get you to really feel at ease and recreate that spa feeling at home, whereas a waterfall shower will engulf you in water and pressure and again ensure that you feel thoroughly clean as well as completely relaxed. Walk in showers give you more room to move around and prevent you having to deal with mold on your shower curtain, while a good bath design should also be supportive so that you can lie back and read a good book.
The Right Products
Of course it’s also useful to keep the right products in your bathroom so that you have access to the best pampering on cue. This might mean an exfoliating cream that lets your skin breathe and keeps it soft and smooth, it might be a scented soap (or several) or it could be a muscle soak bubble bath that turns your muscles into putty. Everyone will have their favorites, so it’s worth shopping around to try a few. Tough work… but someone has to do it!
You can even benefit from appliances and gadgets. Few things add to bath time like a waterproof radio, or why not bring a waterproof tablet in there with you even to have a good read?
