How to install a spa bathroom

Paying huge sums of money for a day at a spa can be a thing of the past by converting your bathroom into a spa. With spa bathrooms, the spa comes to you and you can enjoy your facilities with your friends and family for a great relaxing evening. This article looks at some of the design elements necessary to install that spa bathroom feel in your house.

Facilities

Having the right facilities is going to be the key to the overall spa experience. Spa baths and steam showers are relatively inexpensive nowadays, but there is a great range of luxury showers and baths for if you want to splash out on something more fancy. Spa bathtubs
Spa bathtubs often have water jets, massage plates, ergonomically designed contours and fresh feels that you just do not get out of a standard bath tub. Shower units Shower units too can have great spa facilities installed which can involve multiple water jets, massaging shower heads and the ability to turn your shower cubicle into a steam cabin!

Lighting

Having a range of lighting available will enable you to have mood lighting in your bathroom, which will make the spa experience even more realistic. Glow lights are fabulous and can be used both to set relaxing lighting and to brighten up the room to make you feel fresh and alive! Lighting can be installed into pockets in corners or in the walls and the variation in light direction is a great way to make your room look unique.

Flooring

Spa bathrooms work excellently with either crisp fresh and clean floor tiles, or with natural stone floors. Stone floors give a unique "outdoors" feel which you can complement by adding water features to your design. Make sure that your tiles or slabs are non-slippery as having steam and water around is dangerous.

Accessories

Accessories will top off any spa bathroom design, and you don't always have to buy them either. Go rock and shell hunting at the beach and collect interesting seeds to plant inside. The key to successful accessories is "bringing the outside inside" so look out for natural beauty in things like driftwood, shells, stones and plants.
