Explore ideas for transforming your bathroom into a spa-like retreat
If you’re considering a bathroom update, why not go all out and create a space that is inviting and serene as well as functional? Consider incorporating some of these top ideas for creating a spa-like space in the bathroom.
A luxurious soaker tub is an absolute must-have for a spa-like bathroom. While the choice between a free-standing bathtub or a tub set in a beautiful tile tub surround will depend on your personal preferences, you will want to make sure that whichever option you choose is paired with beautiful faucets.

Spacious Curbless Shower
A shower curtain can easily spoil the spa-like effect in your bathroom. Eliminate the need for a shower curtain by using glass walls instead. This will help create a feeling of spaciousness in the bathroom too. For the ultimate in convenience and style, consider a curbless shower with no step dividing the shower from the rest of the bathroom. If you have a lot of space to work with, you might consider enclosing both a tub and a separate shower area behind glass in their own “wet room” within the bathroom.
Picking the right color scheme is very important for cultivating an atmosphere of peace and relaxation in the bathroom. Neutral tones are typically the best, and grays are especially popular right now for creating a spa-like atmosphere that can be masculine or feminine. Busy patterns are best avoided—instead rely on the natural variations in wood or marble to provide the texture and contrast you crave.
Custom Cabinetry & Shelving
When creating a spa-like environment in your bathroom, choosing what to reveal and what to conceal becomes very important. You obviously want to keep your everyday essentials like toothbrushes and hair products hidden away, but leaving plush towel rolls and soothing candles on display can actually help support the spa feel of the room. Custom bathroom cabinetry is an excellent way to build in just the right mix of hidden and open storage while ensuring that the materials and style support the high-end look you’re creating in the room.
The toilet is of course the most-used fixture in any bathroom, but having your toilet prominently displayed doesn’t necessarily support the class and elegance of a spa-like bathroom design. Consider concealing the toilet in its own “water closet” within the bathroom. This provides greater privacy as well as a nicer look.
