Since being part of this ever-moving world means being busy most of the time (if not all the time), this kind of lifestyle is known to have its effects on the overall health which is why all of a sudden we’re all turning to eating healthy diets and sneaking exercising into our packed schedules. However, when it comes to beauty, taking it from the ancient Egyptian queen Cleopatra, the embodiment of feminine charm, baths are essential as well as it was baths that were her beauty secrets. Considering this, there should always be enough me-time in your life, and what better way to make sure you get enough of it than by turning your bathroom into your own relaxing spot (mouthwatering snacks and book reading in bathtub, anyone?).
There’s so much more to bathrooms than just being the utilitarian rooms as they are in offices and restaurants let’s say. It’s high time we started valuing them in the likeness of bedrooms concerning relaxation. Who needs to waste money on spas when you can get the whole experience and more from the comfort of your own bathroom? You don’t necessarily have to do a complete makeover to be able to create a soothing atmosphere but rather choose from a variety of bathroom products available for sale in specialised shops to get the outcome of your dreams. Bathroom fixtures take up the most space so it’s natural you’re going to have to pay more attention to them first. Mind you, you must equally be led by style as by size. If you do decide to go for a full bathware makeover, you’d be happy to know some shops make use of technology to give you the chance of getting a virtual 3D tour even before your bathroom is built.
If there isn’t enough space for both a bathtub and a shower cabin and you’re both a fan of baths and showers, just add a shower rail or a handshower above the bathtub with a lovely shower curtain and you get the best of both worlds – quick showers to wake you in the morning and enjoyable baths to relax you at night. It’s important to combine bathroom products and items that go well together to be able to create a harmonious ambiance since beauty is in the details so your choice of bathroom accessories, such as towel racks and soap dish holders, also counts.
Again following the footsteps of Cleopatra, what would relaxation be if not for making way for some aromatherapy. Look for pure essential oil blends if you want to make the most of the aromatherapy experience as they’re all beneficial for your health (more so when they’re combined), regardless of whether you opt for a massage, a few drops of them in your bath or in a diffuser. Add ambiental lighting fixtures, a plant and candle here and there, and you’d be surprised of the outcome. With a bathroom like that, you’d feel like royalty yourself.
