There’s not much that beats a re­lax­ing af­ter­noon in a spa; the hot steam cleans­ing, the warm hy­drother­apy pool and mostly that peace and quiet.

How much bet­ter would it be en­joy­ing that ul­ti­mate lux­ury of a health spa in the pri­vacy of your own home? Let me share some ideas and tips to help you trans­form your bath­room into your own spa haven.

Your big­gest fea­ture:

Your bath­room fur­ni­ture is prob­a­bly the most im­por­tant ele­ment in a ren­o­va­tion. Why not add a whirlpool bath or wa­ter­fall shower? There are many op­tions to choose from but it all comes down to per­sonal pref­er­ence. These ad­di­tions will be the mak­ing of your new spa, so have a think about what you want to achieve with your new room. A whirlpool bath sug­gests re­lax­ation while a wa­ter­fall shower cre­ates a re­fresh­ing feel­ing. Can’t de­cide? Why not have the best of both worlds.

Colour schemes:

When choos­ing your colour scheme re­mem­ber that this will set the at­mos­phere for your new spa bath­room, but that doesn’t mean it has to be bor­ing. There are plenty of ways to cre­ate a calm­ing at­mos­phere with char­ac­ter and if whites and beiges aren’t do­ing it for you then why not look at nat­u­ral stones? Mar­ble, gran­ite or lime­stone make for great sur­faces and tiles. They can cre­ate that close to na­ture feel­ing, calm­ing and re­lax­ing you. An­other op­tion is mild colour, choose your favourite colour but lighten it, tones such as pow­der blue or pis­ta­chio green can cre­ate that zen feel you’re look­ing for.

The finer de­tails:

So you have your new bath­room fur­ni­ture and you’ve cho­sen your colour scheme; now for the fin­ish­ing touches! Spot­lights are an all-time favourite for spas and you can have so much fun with them when de­sign­ing your new bath­room. You may have al­ready cho­sen a shower or bath that has spot­lights in­cor­po­rated but if not they’re easy enough to add. We re­cently de­signed, sup­plied and in­stalled a spa bath­room where the cus­tomer had al­ways dreamt of hav­ing an in-floor bath, so we did ex­actly that and added in-floor spot­lights to cre­ate that au­then­tic spa feel­ing. Be sure to choose warm spot­lights over nor­mal LED’s to en­sure the light­ing isn’t too harsh. Re­mem­ber to use mir­rors in your new spa bath­room to cre­ate the il­lu­sion of that spa­cious­ness you would nor­mally ex­pe­ri­ence in your lo­cal spa re­treat. Our web­site is full of re­cent projects, from spa-in­spired bath­rooms to tra­di­tion­ally-in­flu­enced kitchens, so head over to and be in­spired.
