We’ve rounded up 7 spa-like bathroom retreats you just can’t miss! All with great ideas to incorporate into your home. Such as lighting, accessories, flooring, tubs, & tile.
But what goes into a spa-like bathroom? When I think of a spa-inspired bathroom, I think of luxury, sensory experiences, simplicity & ease, and a sense of nature.
So now how to translate that into a spa-like bathroom?
- Luxury: Beginning with the “bones” by having the basics covered with a generous soaking tub. And continuing on to a beautiful shower tile & flooring. Plus a well-equipped vanity and ample lighting.
- Sensory Experience: Decorating the space as to what you envision a spa-like bathroom to be. Begin with; Visual (color), Light (good lighting, natural light), Smell (accessories like a diffuser or candle), Textural materials like soft towels, plants or an area rug. Hearing (music) and Warmth (temperature controls).
- Simplicity & Ease: Start with a good floor plan even in a small bathroom, or work with what you have. But either way, keep it simple, no clutter rather select open storage making towels or a candle accessible.
- A sense of Nature: Incorporate accessories that bring nature inside, like wood, baskets & stacked tile.
First, Luxury, whatever that means to you.
For example, Luxury can be as grand as a generous soaking tub, beautiful shower tile, radiant heat flooring or a double sink vanity. Or a quick update such as double mirrors, gold hardware, plants, decorative lighting or a beautiful paint color.
Second, Sensory, choose a color that will set your spa-like bathroom apart.
Whether it’s a bold red, like Caliente 2018 Color of the Year from Benjamin Moore. Or a soothing Sage, like Gray Mirage, also from Benjamin Moore. This is your retreat, choose a bathroom color to make it your own!

Third, Simplicity & Ease.
A spa-like bathroom style doesn’t have to be a tremendous space just well appointed. Such as lighting, storage, seating, plants & artwork. And amenities like fluffy towels, bath soaps and a candle or two. Paint color below is from Behr 2018 Color of the Year, In The Moment.
And Lastly, A Sense of Nature
Select flooring such as a ceramic tile that looks like hardwood makes an excellent choice for a cozy spa-like bathroom. Also, throw in radiant heat underneath for a truly spa-like experience.
Or a beautiful wood top for your vanity. Also, notice the stacked stone shower and a sprig of greenery as a finishing touch.
So whether you are designing a bathroom from scratch or just need an update creating a spa-like bathroom is easier than you think!
