We all need a place to retreat and recharge our batteries, and that place is often the bathroom. The emergence of spa-inspired bathrooms, or 'Spathrooms' has coincided with our innate desire to create our very own sanctuaries at home; spaces that we can escape to and feel utterly relaxed after the stresses of the day.
When creating a Spathroom, it's all about using key design details that bring an inviting and luxurious feel to bathing spaces, think tactile textures, plants, beautiful scents and fluffy towels. The surfaces you choose will also play a vital role in the overall aesthetic of your dream spa bathroom, so it's important to consider your tile choice carefully.
To help you on your way to recreating this look, let's take a look at some of our top tips on how you can achieve a Spathroom at home.
Choose a calming colour scheme
When beginning your Spathroom renovation, it's important to choose a colour scheme that is soothing and calming. Neutral tones such as white, beige, and grey are popular choices as well as colours that are reminiscent of the ocean. These hues can help create a peaceful atmosphere, perfect for unwinding after a long day.
Our Dyroy Aqua Tile in particular delivers the perfect relaxing environment when used to create a feature wall. The fresh colours will make you feel instantly at ease, whilst pairing beautifully with our Contrasti Tappeto Ottanio Tile for a colour-drenched scheme.

Incorporate natural elements
Natural elements can also assist in creating a spa-like atmosphere in your bathroom. An easy way to do this is by using stone-effect tiles across your walls and floors, with wooden details to complement. Plants can also add a touch of nature and help purify the air, creating a peaceful and healthier environment. Our Nature Bone collection of floor and wall tiles can assist in creating this sought-after look – they are best paired with a soft green wall and an eclectic range of plants for an effortless aesthetic.

Focus on lighting
Lighting is also a crucial element in any spa-like bathroom. You can create a soft warm ambience by installing dimmer switches or by using diffused lighting for an inviting appeal. However, if you're styling on a budget, then candles are the perfect solution for this – and the more the merrier we say!

Invest in luxurious towels, bathrobes and soaps
One of the easiest ways to create a spa-like atmosphere in your bathroom is by investing in high-quality towels and bathrobes. Soft, fluffy towels and plush bathrobes can help you feel pampered and indulged, just like you would in a luxury spa! You can also invest in the finest soaps and lotions for the ultimate sanctuary experience, but you may want to save those for special occasions.
