Are you craving a little bathroom bliss? The bathroom is the one room in the house where we can truly escape and indulge in a little “me time”. It’s a private space for pampering with luxurious bubble baths, soaps and lotions. And for many of us, it’s the only place we get to take a breather from the kids! You deserve the spa treatment. Take a look at our on-trend tips to get a spa-like bathroom on a budget.
Tidy counters and clear your surfaces by investing in shelving or baskets to store towels and products. If you have a vanity unit, make the interior work harder with extra shelves or label up stackable boxes. Get matching accessories within the same range to keep your soap dispenser, jewellery tray and toilet-brush holder uniform.
Beyond being an obvious necessity in every bathroom, mirrors have the power to magically transform a bathroom. They amplify the light, thus giving the illusion of more space and depth. Give your bathroom an instant update with a stylish new vanity mirror, such as the rustic-farmhouse Clare or large round Larsen, which suits both contemporary and mid-century aesthetics.

A candle or room fragrance on your vanity will instantly make your bathroom smell and feel more beautiful. For a morning boost, try citrus scents or fruity scents and for a relaxing nighttime wind down, choose sandalwood.
Plants instantly brighten spaces and help purify the air – select those that work well with humidity and don’t require too much direct light. Faux plants can give you the same fresh look, without the upkeep and will look great in a stone or basket planter.
A great piece of art can style up your bathroom and create a whole new look and feel. A beautiful framed print under glass will add instant elegance and also be safe from the effects of steam!
Create a spa-like feel by placing a chair in your bathroom, or if you’re short on space, our elegant side table that doubles up as somewhere to sit as you apply your lotion as well as a place to rest your towel, book or glass of wine while in the tub.
An easy way to get a spa-like bathroom on a budget is to stock up on lots of delicious body products. Scented soaps, body washes and creamy shaving lotions are the perfect way to pamper yourself. You don’t have to spend a million bucks to look it!
Invest in some fluffy new towels or get your tired ones super soft again by replacing your fabric softener with vinegar to remove the built-up soapy residue and then tumble dry them with a tennis ball or dryer ball. Add a sumptuous rug beside the bathtub for the true spa experience.
