HOW TO CRE­ATE A SPA-LIKE SANC­TU­ARY

Build It - - EXPERT HELP -

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.
