Something about being in the bathroom makes us feel like it is the perfect place to relax and pamper ourselves. The warmth of a well-lit bathroom, the soothing scent of essential oils or an aromatherapy diffuser, and the relaxing music can transform a bathroom into your oasis away from the rest of the world.  

To create this kind of atmosphere in your bathroom, you need some upgrades. But, if you follow these tips on how to upgrade your bathroom, you can get started today and transform your bathroom into a sanctuary tomorrow.

  1. Change The Tiling

One of the most common upgrades to bathrooms is changing the tiling. If you have the old tiles in your bathroom, you may feel that they look tired and dated. Upgrading your bathroom with new tiles can do wonders to transform your bathroom from a tired space to a modern space. Depending on the amount of money you have to spend, you may want to choose wall-to-wall tiles or just a border. Of course, you can always just paint the tiles if you’re on a tight budget. It’s surprising how much difference a lick of paint can make. And always check if you need a plumber if you want to move things around. 

  1. Go For Neutral Tones

To create a soothing, relaxing atmosphere in your bathroom, go for neutral tones. Neutral tones help to put your bathroom in a ‘zen-like’ state, as they make you feel calm and secure. You can choose from a wide range of neutral tones, such as warm grey, soft blue, or muted yellow. 

  • Warm Grey 

Warm grey is a very soothing color, reflecting the light and creating a calm atmosphere. This color works well with most other tones, so it is easy to match with other décor items in your bathroom. 

  • Soft Blue 

Soft blue is also a great color for your bathroom. It is a very calming color that works well with many other colors. 

  • Muted Yellow 

Muted yellow is a very neutral and calming color that can be used in any room of your home. It is an excellent color for your bathroom, as it easily matches other décor items. 

  1. Change The Lighting

Your kitchen and bathrooms are the heart of your home. Mainly because they get the most use. But if your bathroom is full of bright, harsh lights, you may want to consider changing the lighting. Overhead lights are great for illuminating a specific area in your bathroom, but they aren’t great for creating a soothing ambiance. Instead, you may want to install recessed lights or add some sconces to your walls. These lighting fixtures help to create a softer glow in your bathroom, which is much more suitable for a relaxing environment. You can also opt for LED lights, as they are energy-efficient and don’t produce much heat, which is perfect for bathrooms.

  1. Add Smart Features

If renovating your bathroom, you may consider adding smart features such as humidity and motion sensors. Humidity sensors are perfect for bathrooms, as they turn the lights off when the humidity in the room reaches a certain level. These are great for conserving energy and help extend your light bulb’s life. Motion sensors are also great for bathrooms, as they turn the lights off when they don’t detect any movement in the room. This helps conserve energy and is also great for your children, as it creates a safe environment.

  1. Introduce Some Greenery

Finally, if you want to create a truly calming and zen-like environment in your bathroom, you want to consider adding some greenery. Plants are perfect for bathrooms, as they help clean the air, reduce stress, and even help you to sleep better. You can add a large plant to your bathroom or create a mini ‘green wall’ by hanging plants from your bathroom wall. 

If you follow these tips on how to upgrade your bathroom, you can create the perfect sanctuary for you and your family. You can transform your space from a dull, dated bathroom to a modern, relaxing bathroom.
