HOW TO CREATE A SPA-LIKE SANCTUARY
Make sure walls and windows are acoustically insulated to help exclude as much sound from outside as possible.
Consider installing a built-in sound system to play relaxing music – you can go as far as buying a bath with integrated speakers.
A towel warmer is an essential, however, warming drawers are also available to add another layer of cosiness.
When it comes to specifying the shower, a steam appliance could create the opulence you’re after. These self-contained units emit steam mixed with essential oils. A design with multiple jets and horizontal sprays will infuse the room with grandeur.
Fit a luxury tub. One with whirlpool air jets will mix bath salts and oils as well as offer an indulgent experience. Consider a compact Japanese-style bath, which is designed with an integrated seat.
If you have enough space, try boosting the spa-like feel with a comfortable seating area adjacent to the bathing zone. Indoor plants designed for humid conditions can add an exotic touch.
