How to turn your space from blah to spa
If like us, your Pinterest boards are just a long lust-worthy list of spa bathrooms, this is how to make that dream moodboard come to life. Whether you want to channel a minimalist Scandinavian escape or Moroccan stone baths, these are the décor tips that’ll make it into a reality without a complete remodel – it’s all in the accessories.
The urban escape
This is for the modern ones. That exclusive members-only spa in the corner of the city. The minimalist lovers dream.
For those who appreciate a few trendy touches with their spa experience, this pink tone is the way forward. Consider this your new magnolia. It’ll sweep your space with a sense of cool and calm that feels fresh for now. Paint it on the walls, or if you’ve already got tiles you love in the bathroom, bring in the blush hues with towels and accents instead.
For accessories (mirrors, trays and storage) these Scandi style ones are on our list. Washed raw wood and matte metal details are the ultimate combo. While the geometric shapes add a touch of the industrial – perfect for capturing that city-spa vibe – the soft finishes and clean lines will give your space a sleek, tranquil feel. Lush.
The last but most important trick to getting this look is de-cluttering. The beauty of a premium minimalist spa, is you don’t see a hoard of skincare by the side of the sink. This is a space is for you to relax, not feel overwhelmed by tons of garish bottles.
Start by decanting your soaps and shampoos into matching bottles and dispensers – like these beautiful grey geometric ones. Then, gather your beauty bits and bung them in some cool wire baskets like these, which stack up neatly too. Now, light some candles and book in a meeting with your tub.
The rural retreat
Beautiful sunsets, sandblasted walls, infinity pools… if your kind of spa is the type in a hot climate with a paradise view, this one’s for you. Recreate the look at home by whitewashing the floors and walls to give it that beachy feel. Keeping raw, distressed woods will only add to the aesthetic. Style with eclectic willow baskets to bring a travelled look, and a statement towel or two.
Morocco, Thailand or even the Cotswolds – if your idea of relaxation is a luxury rural retreat, these ceramic stone accessories are made for your bathroom. With leather handle detailing and a crackled finish base, they give us serious vintage villa vibes.
