How to create your own private spa at home

As most people spend more time at home due to the pandemic, many are looking for ways to turn their spaces into retreats of well-being. How about a home spa?
For some people, that means major renovations. For others, it means making select improvements designed to add more tranquility and enjoyment to their lives. It’s not so surprising then that home-improvement contractors expect a boost in homeowner requests during the second half of 2020.
In terms of design, people are seeing their living spaces as their refuges – sanctuaries where they’re safe and comforted, notes architect Ryan Leidner on “As the outside world becomes less touchable, I can see a great desire for the materials, textures and objects within our homes to have more of a tactile quality that invites us to use them. And I can see people getting more creative and interested in ways to bring the outside in, possibly re-imagining their living spaces as indoor gardens and landscapes.”
A prime area of focus for many homeowners has been their bathrooms, which are now being converted into spa-like havens of self-care, instead of just functional spaces. At the same time, many are adding features that aim for better cleanliness, sustainability and multi-generational living.
If your own private spa sounds like the perfect place for your family to re-energise and rejuvenate from the cares of each day, here are ideas for creating such a space in your home:

Here’s what to do

Add an extra-deep soaking tub
Gone are the days when a bath meant scrunching your limbs into a cramped basin of water and trying to stay warm. Today’s roomy bathtubs are designed to let you stretch out and relax, fully immersed, in a soothing surround of hydrotherapeutic luxury.

Install a curbless shower and linear drain
The most progressive shower configurations are ergonomically constructed with sleek, curb-free, ADA-compliant entries, so family members need not step in and out, but merely walk in. Unlike more traditional drains, a linear drain also allows for freedom of design because it appears as an unobtrusive strip aligned with your shower wall, you can choose any kind of material for the rest of your shower floor – even larger-sized tiles. That means fewer seams that can collect mold, mildew and grime, and less cleaning for you.

Invest in voice-activated smart features
With a few technology and equipment upgrades, Alexa, Siri or Google Home can now run your bath at your temperature of choice, power up your shower, light up your mirror, warm your toilet seat, diffuse your favorite fragrance, play all your top tunes and perform a number of other functions aimed at customizing your home spa experience and boosting its luxury level.

Incorporate a steam shower
Equipment added right into your shower stall can pipe in fresh steam customised by temperature and duration. “Bathing” in the vapour can feel wonderfully soothing and hydrating, and it’s said to produce health benefits ranging from better circulation and sinus drainage to clearer skin and rejuvenation of tired muscles.

Treat yourself to a towel warmer
Those living in cold climates may especially appreciate the luxury of having a warm, cozy towel in which to snuggle up after a relaxing bath or shower. These handy pieces of hardware are relatively easy to install and can be well worth the investment in terms of comfort.

When it comes to coping with the extra stress of COVID, your home can become a sanctuary that helps you relax and recharge. Consider making upgrades that will make time at home more peaceful and enjoyable for you and your family.
