Keep your bathroom clean and clutter-free.

Spas are known for their cleanliness, so your bathroom should also be just as immaculate. Take the time to scrub the grime off your tiles and give every square inch a thorough cleaning.

Invest in quality candles.

Give your bathroom a spa-like ambience by investing in candles. Scented ones add a nice touch, as long as you steer clear of those that can easily overpower your nose.

Make room for fluffy towels.

Ratty towels don’t exactly belong in a spa, so get rid of those that are worn out to make room for the softest and fluffiest white towels you can find. On that note, you might also want to get rid of that dirty rug you have lying around the bathroom.

Prepare a tray of bath goodies.

Group your favorite bathing products together. This way, your bath salts, bubble bath foam, soap, shampoo, and conditioner are all within easy reach. Make sure you discard old products that you no longer use.

Hook up your mp3 player.

Prepare a relaxing playlist then plug in your player whenever you feel like taking a long in the tub or leisurely shower. Instrumental music and nature sounds can help ease away stress. You may place the mp3 player and speakers on the shelf. Avoid placing it on the water closet or by the bathroom sink as it might get wet.
