After a long, stressful day, we could all use an escape. But, that doesn’t mean you have to leave home. Transforming your bathroom into a personal oasis could help your mind and body unwind every single day. A few small, affordable upgrades and decorative touches can make all the difference. Experience a spa-like retreat in your own home with these five simple ideas!

1. SET THE MOOD

Dim the lights and use candles instead to create a relaxing atmosphere. Play your favorite songs to sing along to or listen to soothing ambient music. You can play music from a playlist on your phone, or you can even buy a waterproof speaker to bring into the shower with you. 

2. ADD GREENERY

Make your shower feel like a tropical paradise or misty forest. Plants are natural air filters that purify the air by removing CO2. If you’re going to keep real plants or flowers in your shower or bathroom, be sure to choose ones that thrive in a damp, humid environment, such as boston ferns, aloe vera, bamboo, or orchids.

3. INSTALL A SCENTED SHOWER FILTER

Not only will the VOESH Vitamin C Shower Filters make your bathroom smell heavenly, but they will also eliminate chlorine and water impurities for a clean shower experience. Your skin and hair will feel softer and healthier right away! Our Vitamin C Shower Filter comes in five pleasant scents: Blossom Bliss, Citrus Crush, Lavender Land, Clean Ocean, and Rainforest Mist.

4. UPGRADE YOUR SHOWER ACCESSORIES

Purchase a new shower head, or handheld unit, with multiple settings to adjust the water to your desired pressure. Invest in a fluffy loofah, exfoliating body gloves, or bath brushes to give your body a deep clean. Don’t forget a fuzzy robe and slippers for when you step out of the shower.

5. PAINT YOUR BATHROOM

Using pale greens, greys, browns, and blues are soothing to look at and help create a spa-like atmosphere. All-white bathrooms (with white walls, floors, vanities, and sinks) tend to be less inviting overall. If you don’t want to commit to painting the entire bathroom, you can always paint one accent wall.

When you can’t go to the spa, bring the spa to you! No traveling required. We all need to relax and recharge, and what better place to do so than right at home?
