If there’s one place where you should be able to relax and destress, it’s your home. Rather than paying to escape to a spa hotel, why not turn your home into a private spa centre. Here are just a few ways in which you can do this.
Splash out on a new tub
Upgrading your tub could help to make bath time more relaxing. If you’ve got the space, you could try a freestanding bath, giving you more elbow room. A whirlpool tub meanwhile could give you the feeling of having your own hot tub.
A new tub isn’t cheap and you’ll have to pay for plumbing and delivery on top. However, it could be a personal luxury that you deserve if you take regular baths. Besides, it will add value to your home significantly.
Invest in your dream bedding
Your bed also deserves to be a place of utmost comfort. For some spa-quality bedding, why not try buying some silk or Egyptian cotton sheets. Bamboo sheets are also a good choice for when staying cool when it’s hot, whilst flannel is the perfect material for keeping warm on a cold night.
It could also be worth upgrading your mattress. Everyone has their own preference when it comes to mattresses – some prefer them soft and springy, whilst others prefer a firm mattress. A good quality mattress isn’t cheap, but you’re guaranteed better quality sleep.
Buy a massage chair
Treat yourself to a back massage in your own home whilst catching up on the latest TV series by buying a massage chair. There are plenty of armchairs and sofas on the market that have vibrating functions to help give you a massage. These can be especially beneficial if you’ve got a back problems.
Keep your feet warm
You shouldn’t have to suffer cold feet in your home. Upgrading your carpets could be a great way to treat your feet. Alternatively, a cheaper option could be to lay down some fluffy rugs for sinking your feet into.
You could also try investing in underfloor heating. This can be great for keeping wooden and tiled floors heated (underfloor heating in the bathroom is great evaporating spilled water and keeping your feet warm as you get out the bath).
Having comfortable clothes to lounge around in at home could also help you to feel like you’re in your own spa. Some luxury bathrobes could be a great option for when you want to feel snug. Bathrobes aren’t just for women and you can find some great bathrobes for men. It could also be worth treating yourself to some luxury slippers (this could save you having to make improvements to your flooring, keeping your feet constantly comfortable).
Try some aromatherapy
Having a home that smells nice will also help you to relax. Scents such as lavender, jasmine and sandalwood are all very relaxing and are great for relieving stress and improving sleep quality. There are many ways to introduce these scents to your home including oil diffusers, scented candles, air fresheners and incense sticks. You can even grow houseplants with aromatic smells for a natural touch.
