Today's women have to deal with more than their share of household and workspace stress. Time is the most precious commodity and there never seems to be enough time to get to the spa and get the well deserved pampering they provide. Now, more and more women are looking to carve out a little space for themselves right in their own home. Depending on budget… creating your own private spa getaway can be as easy as walking into your bathroom, bedroom, home gym or converted extra room.
At home spas are the latest trend in bathroom design. There are many ways to create a home spa from a lavish remodeling project to a modest addition of some pampering accessories. The important thing to remember is work within your means and plan it out.
For many people, getting away from the clutter and stuff of everyday life helps them to relax. One of the secrets to creating a relaxing spa environment is adopting a clean minimalist design. To create this feeling, simplicity is the rule and inspiration is generated from nature. Gently flowing water, rich wood and smooth slate provide a backdrop for calm, neutral colors in whites, beige's and greys reminiscent of natural elements such as clouds, sandy beaches, and river rock. Subtle blues, greens, and purples complete a serene and tranquil setting to soothe the eyes and calm the spirit.
Simple does not mean boring or lack of style. Consider the warm elegance of a Scandinavian sauna or the Zen simplicity of an Asian Bath. You can infuse your home spa with any of these influences and add accents like candles, rugs, shelving, mirrors and other accessories, but kept to a minimum.
Use your imagination and focus on details to create a simple but elegant retreat where you can escape to and let your cares melt away.
