If you’re a real spa buff and spend at least 4 hours a week soaking in the hot water followed by a nice manicure and pedicure, then you will love having a home spa. The comfort and privacy of your home will make the experience even more relaxing, plus you can have as many sessions as you like and you can take your time. If the thought of this pampering experience looks quite attractive to you, here’s how you can create the perfect spa right in your home.
Consider the location
The location of your home spa is one of the biggest decisions you have to make. There are both indoor and outdoor models and your choice should depend on your space, your climate and your preference. Indoor spas offer more privacy and can be enjoyed all year round, but outdoor spas create a unique experience, especially when you plunge into the hot water during chilly nights.
Get a good spa model
There’s no home spa without a spa unit, so make it the star of the show. Today, there are so many different luxury spa models that come in different sizes and shapes and are equipped with different jet sets. They go from mini 2-seaters for an intimate spa experience all the way up to 12-seaters and swim spas perfect for parties. Aside from classic above-ground models, there are also in-ground spas that are partially or completely inserted in the ground. All you need to do is pick a size and model that fits your needs and space, get it installed (which is usually a super quick process) and dive in!
Incorporate a shower
No matter if you have an outdoor or indoor spa, you can always incorporate a shower into your design. A stone-covered shower will not only give your space a unique and stylish look, but also allow you to take a quick wash after your spa session. For the best effect, create an open wet room with a stylish and minimalist rain shower. This will create a feeling that you’re taking a shower in the middle of the rainforest and further improve your spa design and experience.
Introduce some cozy furniture
Spas are all about comfort, so if you want to further boost it, you can get some cozy furniture for your home spa, no matter if you have an outdoor or indoor design. It will soften down the space and make it look more spa-like. Additionally, you’ll have a place where you can sit, leave your clothes or conduct your beauty routine in peace. However, make sure to pick a piece with water-resistant fabrics. Most outdoor materials today look super attractive and can handle all the humidity and moisture. Lounge chairs are a more classic approach, but they are still amazing, especially when surrounding a big outdoor spa. If you just can’t live without regular massages, investing in a pro massage table and you’ll always be ready to get a good rubdown in style.
Protect it from the elements
If you have an outdoor spa, no matter where you live, there will be days that will not allow you to use your beautiful spa. In these cases, make sure to have an appropriate cover that will protect your unit from the elements. If you live in an area with four seasons, then you need a good cover that can handle everything from strong sun to heavy snowfall. There are some cheap covers you can get online, but don’t hesitate to splurge on a high-quality product. Automated covers that are built into the deck look super stylish and can be put on easily and quickly.
Once you create your private spa, you’ll feel like royalty during your every pampering session and have the ultimate spa experience right in the comfort of your own home.
