For less than the cost of a week at your favorite spa, you could transform your own home into a spa oasis. When you transform your home into an oasis of relaxation, you can enjoy the health benefits of stress reduction and relaxation every day, without traveling to a far off spa or puffing a crimp in your wallet. With a few simple techniques and a few simple materials, you can transform every room of your home into a relaxing spa-like environment.
Transforming each room of your home one at a time gives you time to work, and allows you to work within virtually any budget. Transforming your own home into a home spa is not as expensive, or as time-consuming, as you might think. By starting small and working consistently, you can create the best spa in town — right under your own roof.
The master bedroom in your home should be an oasis of relaxation, and a place to let the stress of the day melt away. With a few simple changes to your bedroom environment, you can enjoy all the amenities of the typical spa, without the high cost of a spa visit. You can start your transformation with your bed. If your mattress is old and uncomfortable, it is no doubt impacting your ability to enjoy a good night’s sleep and a relaxing nighttime environment. Consider buying a new mattress complete with comfort items like a pillow topper or memory foam insert.
This can help you sleep through the night, reducing your stress level and even improving your health. Taking the time to create a relaxing library can also enhance the spa-like environment of your master bedroom. Stock your bedroom bookshelves with books about meditation, yoga, massage, biofeedback and other relaxation techniques. Enjoy a few pages from those books as you fall asleep each night, and implement the best ideas you glean from those pages.
If you have a sitting area in your master bedroom, consider creating a “pamper station” where you can not only apply your makeup and condition your skin but relax away from the stress of the day as well. Stock your pamper station with an assortment of lotions from your latest spa visit, and take some “me time” each day to pamper yourself with those great items.
If you want to turn your master bathroom into a relaxing oasis in the middle of your stressful life, the master bath is the perfect place to start. Consider replacing that old worn out bathtub with a whirlpool spa or Jacuzzi. These relaxing bathtubs are staples of the spa industry, and when you install one in your master bathroom you can enjoy their relaxing waters every single day. And best of all, installing a Jacuzzi or whirl pool in your master bathroom can cost less than a single treatment at a professional spa.
Your top floor kitchenette can be an integral part of your home spa experience. The kitchenette gives you a place to prepare healthy meals, but it can also play a role in your new and more relaxing lifestyle. One of the best ways to recreate the spa experience at home is by creating a healthy smoothie station in your own private kitchen.
One of the reasons why spas are so effective is that the clients of the spa eat healthy meals and enjoy all overall healthier lifestyle during their stay. You can recreate those healthy meals with a bowl of fruit and a blender; right in the comfort of your own home. Stock your home spa kitchenette with an assortment of attractive glasses, just like at the spa, and you will be ready to go. And since you probably already have a blender, your cash outlay will be minimal.
