Love is in the air and it is time to bring forth the mushiest side of your personality. How are you going to celebrate this Valentine’s Day? Why not give your bathroom a Valentine makeover and turn it into a spa- like retreat. Here are three easy steps to fulfill your relaxing spa fantasies right in the comfort of your home:
Valentine’s Day: Turn your Bathroom into a Spa
1. Prep it up
The first step to a spa-like feel is to prepare your bathroom well. Deep clean the bathroom and ensure that it sparkles. Scrub the bath tub and give it a good dose of disinfectants. Clean out the clutter from the bathroom counters, remove old magazines and dispose of the empty bottles. Place freshly laundered bath towels in a wicker basket and for the added effect, roll them up. Add a plush bathmat and hang a couple of matching bathrobes. Finish with a few potted plants or a bunch of fresh flowers.

2. Set the mood
Next, set the mood of your bathroom to match that of a spa. Switch off the overhead lights and use dimmers to turn down the intensity of the wall scones. If you do not have dimmers, replace the bulbs with lower wattage ones. Create soft lighting and add warmth with clusters of candles around the bathroom.

3. Add some love
Finally, tease your sense of smell with aromatherapy products like essential oils and reed diffusers. Make arrangement to play soft music in the bathroom. Pull in your bar cart and stock it up with still water, a bottle of champagne and flutes. Place a bath tub tray across your tub to hold the flutes. Add bath salts to the bath water and float rose petals for a romantic touch.
