Bathroom Ideas for a Spa-like Feel

At the end of a long day, there is nothing better than soaking in a nice, hot bath. Is your bathroom that kind of peaceful retreat?  Here are some current trends for bathrooms that can turn your bathroom into a spa-like, relaxing sanctuary.

Glass Tile

Glass tile has become more and more popular in bathrooms.

It is perfect for a sink backsplash, in a shower, or even on the walls, for a dramatic look:

Glass tile comes in many colors and patterns…

Bold Colors

Sure, white and light-colored bathrooms are classic and spa-like, but current trends show that bold is in. There are many ways to add bold colors to your bath.

You can go all out, like this bright, funky bathroom:

Or just add little pops of color in your towels and bath mats, like this one:

Go bold without breaking the bank!

Technology in the Bath

High-tech has come to the bath! From MP3 players in the shower to chromotherapy in the bath, the trend is toward a more high-tech bath.

How about a TV in the bathroom, so you can catch up on your favorite shows while soaking in the tub?

You can even have a remote-controlled toilet! (No, I’m not kidding.)

Vanities, Reimagined

Sure, you can buy a vanity from a bath or home improvement store. Or, you could turn a vintage dresser into a vanity.

I love how the homeowner turned an old dresser into something new and beautiful. And the contemporary faucet is a fun and funky touch – I love the contrast of styles.

I hope this inspires you to make some changes to your own bath. Turn it into a relaxing retreat in your home.
