Create a Spa Bathroom

Before getting your hands dirty, you will need to promise yourself that you will spend more time relaxing – in the bathroom. Whether you plan on gutting the bathroom and starting from scratch, or simply want a few changes, here are some tips on how to turn your current bathroom into a relaxing spa. You won’t want to get out of the tub!

1. Upgrade to a whirlpool or champagne tub. Having a whirlpool tub is like having a hot tub in your bathroom.

2. Install a vessel or above the counter sink. These sinks can give any bathroom a spa-like feel.
