Life as we know it has become hectic, leaving people exhausted and super tired at the end of the day. Everyone is looking for an escape – a place to relax and enjoy.

A few well-planned things like unique aesthetics, proper accents, features, the right color choice, etc., can convert any bathroom space into a spa-like one. After talking to many design experts, we have come up with 7 tips to help you design your custom-built bathroom.

7 Tips to Design a Custom-Built Spa Bathroom


The first thing that catches your eye about spa bathrooms is how tidy they are. The reason for this is that they don't contain excess clutter. The neatness comes from the fact that only the essential items are included in it. It is kept clutter-free. This does not mean that you don't put anything in your bathroom; it just means there is no chaos and clutter.

Vanity drawers are the key. All personal grooming items like your razors, shaving foam, toothpaste, toothbrush, etc., don't need to be on display but are tucked away somewhere. You can also experiment with glass bins and drawer dividers to keep your spa bathroom neat and clean. You can display your towels on a countertop or bench along with some aromatherapy items like peppermint to give that ultimate relaxation to your mind and body.

Calm Your Soul

Your spa bath should help you relax. For that, don't go for bold colors, hues, or fixtures. Incorporate clean lines and natural color. Select neutral colors. Back in the day, spas were situated around mineral springs and flowing water. Try to include that in your spa bathroom design. This can quickly be done by incorporating the right showerhead. There are so many types available in the market. A "rain-stimulating" one will achieve the perfect effect. If you want to invest a bit more, you can include a waterfall faucet. When you close your eyes, you can imagine yourself surrounded by nature near water falling over small river rocks. Oh, what a feeling!

Invite Nature

What can relax you more than including nature in your bathroom? Many plants can survive in your bathroom and bring you close to nature. Aloe Vera, Bamboo, Orchid, Spider Plant, etc., all make excellent choices. Potted plants can be used in multiple ways. You can leave them on the floor, hang them from ceilings or put them on the counter. They will bring a personality and add color to the spa bathroom.

Bathtub Tray

Want to relax in your bathtub and read a book? Want to enjoy your book with a glass of wine? A wooden bathtub tray is just the thing you need. Not only does it give a luxurious look, but it is also functional. You can place anything on it from books, tea, wine, books, candles, and even accessories like a loofah, soap, shampoo, etc.

Get a Bathtub

To ramp up your spa game, include a bathtub in your bathroom. You don't need to go for luxurious ones, but a simple one will do the trick.

Target All Sense

A spa bathroom NEEDS to be visually lovely. That is a must. But what people overlook (and designers don't help you with) is creating the entire package. It would be best if you relaxed all your senses. Add a little soft music, throw in your favorite scene, light that unique candle, dim the lights, and you are good to go!

Artwork Goes a Long Way

Add a piece of art on the wall that your bathtub or shower faces towards. It can be anything that you connect with.

As you can now see, anyone can relax in their custom build spa bathroom. Just a few upgrades here and there, and you will be good to go. The key is to tone it down, keep it neutral and natural, and Hoorah, you have your spa bathroom!
