The bathroom should be a welcome retreat from the everyday world. Like at a spa, you should be able to switch off and enjoy some peaceful time in a relaxing, soothing environment. So, we’ve teamed up with Crosswater London to bring you some of our top tips for creating a luxurious spa-like feel in your home bath.
SET THE STAGE WITH NEUTRAL COLORS AND NATURAL TEXTURES
Visit any of the top hotels and spas, and you’re likely to see neutral color schemes, like whites, creams, greys, and pale browns. There’s a very good reason for this. These palettes make spaces feel light, airy, and spacious.
Brassware provides a clever way to add color and texture and ties the whole scheme together. A luxurious finish, such as brushed brass or matte black, goes a long way in imparting a spa-like feel, which can be further accentuated through the use of natural materials, such as wood, along with bursts of natural greenery.
BANISH CLUTTER WITH CABINETRY & STORAGE
Nothing undermines the serene, relaxing feel you’re going for like clutter. So it’s essential to have sufficient cabinetry and other storage to stow away toiletries, cleaning products, and the like.
Crosswater London’s MPRO furniture range in the American Walnut finish is the ideal storage option and brings in the beauty and warmth of natural texture. Add MPRO drawer organizers with compartments and you have a clean, elegant way of storing all your bath essentials.
Storage can also be decorative – think about how you can use glass containers and wicker baskets, for example, to display bathroom items in an aesthetically pleasing way.
CREATE A FOCAL POINT WITH THE BATHTUB
What can be more inviting at the end of a long day than a large, freestanding bath filled with hot water and bubbles. As well as providing the perfect way to relax, a bathtub can also be the ideal focal point for your spa-style bathroom. Crosswater London’s Balthazar Bathtub is available in 5 beautiful finishes, including a dramatic matte black exterior, making it the perfect addition for an on-trend spa-style bathroom!
USE BRASSWARE ACCESSORIES TO ADD THE FINISHING TOUCHES
The finishing touches play a major role in completing the look and feel you want. This is where brassware and accessories come in.
When thinking about brassware and accessories for your spa-style space, go for rich, sumptuous finishes. Brushed brass, with a touch of gold, is an excellent choice for understated sophistication. For a more classic look, Crosswater London’s Belgravia brassware works well across all areas of the bathroom, from the faucets and bath filler to the towel bar and robe hook. In polished nickel, Belgravia shines with a warm glow.
We hope this post with Crosswater London has helped you envision ways to create the spa-like bathroom of your dreams and to see that it’s easier than you might think. The essential ingredients center around soothing colors, uncluttered organization, luxurious brassware and finishes. Once you have those elements in place, add some scented candles and fluffy towels, and enjoy!
