Everyone deserves a day of pampering to unwind in a relaxing bathroom. Recently, I gave my second story guest bath an updated look. My goal was to create a spa like retreat for my guest. There are so many ways to create a spa like look into your bathroom.
First start with a fresh coat of paint. It’s an inexpensive way to bring drama. It can change the look and feel of a room. Choose a warm soothing comfortable color palette such as grey’s and blues. It’s calm and it’s a great stress reducer. The paint color I have chosen is both. A cool blue and inside the water closet I chose a light grey.
Candles with aromas such as vanilla and lavender are great to use while soaking your troubles away… Displaying candles is a big part of achieving the spa like look and feel, and it contributes to the look. They not only smell fabulous but they are also great stress reducers.
The glass box is actually a candle holder. This was a Homegood’s find for $12.99. I love it because of the vintage feel of it.
Apothecary jars is great for storing bath salts and sea sponges. If you don’t want the expense of apothecary jars you can also re-purpose mason jars as well. Next to the jars is a soap dispenser and a soap dish I got from Ross Stores for $2.99.
Bamboo roman shades was my choice for the window coverings. I’m not a fan of using curtains due to potential mold.
Homegood’s is where I purchased the memory foam 8×2 runner. It’s just wonderful…. it’s like standing on a pillow. The color and pattern caught my eye. The price wasn’t to shabby either. Cost $13.99.
The expresso ladder was a purchase from Target a few years back. Due to no towel rack in the bath this was the alternative. Instead of drilling holes into the walls the ladder is working out just fine. I can put multiple towels on it and it doubles as a magazine rack as well.
AHHH… a soft cozy white robe hangs on this silver deer head. An added touch of whimsy… Keeping a robe out for guest just in case they left theirs at home shows great hospitality. It also let’s them know you care and they don’t feel awkward asking you for one.
Finding unique new ways for storage has always been my obsession. Ikea has this kitchen organizing railing storage system by Fintrop. It’s in the kitchen dept. I think it’s a neat way to store extra rolls of toilet paper or wipes. The flower pot is a nice added touch. Ikea never let’s me down.
Magazine racks is a great way to keep the newspapers, magazines etc…off the floor and off the toilet tank. It’s the perfect spot in this corner.

Here’s the Fintorp kitchen organizer used in a kitchen. You can also use it in a craft room and the Laundry room.
A over the door hook rack is placed here to hang wet towels.
Now…sit back and relax and enjoy 🙂
