Give your bathroom a makeover

Give your bathroom a makeover

If you've ever been to a spa, you know that luxurious amenities—including plush robes, scented oils and fluffy towels—can put your mind and body at ease. If your New Year's resolution is to squeeze more relaxation time into your week, a few design solutions for your powder room can help you achieve this goal. Nothing is more relaxing than a long soak in a bubble bath. However, if your bathroom is cluttered or outdated, finding zen may be difficult, especially if you live in the city. 

Follow these suggestions to give your bathroom a makeover:

  • Proper window fashions: Window coverings are important in the powder room, as they provide us with privacy, which is especially crucial if your bathroom is on the first floor of your house. Look for curtains that are light and airy, or try using blinds or indoor shutters, which allow you to let light in at your liking.
  • Spa-like amenities: "I feel like the line between a decent hotel and one that leaves an impression on me is whether or not a nice robe is waiting for me," writes Houzz.com contributor Becky Harris. "Having a robe hanging in the bathroom is not clutter, but stick with white or something that adds to the decor, like a pretty kimono-like robe." Other luxurious amenities include slippers, aromatic candles, bath salts and even flowers.
