We Brits are increasingly spending our hard earned cash on getaways to spas and saunas. It’s obvious why – we need a five star day or two of relaxation every now and then because of our incredibly hectic lifestyles. A lot of us are non-stop from the moment we wake until our head hits the pillow at night, so finding time to pamper ourselves is critical for our health and mental well-being.
However, what if we told you that you don’t need to have to travel to and from a day of treating yourself? That’s right, you could bring the experience home with you. Tempting isn’t it?
There are a few things to tick off your list when bringing the five star feel to your own house, so we’ve broken them down for you. The main thing to consider is the look and feel you want to portray – you want to use quality mosaic tiles so that they look beautiful and last long-term. Visiting a showroom will allow you to see them up close and allow you to visualise how they will look in your own home.
Your Swimming pool
Whether you already have a pool or you’re thinking of installing one, you need to consider a few things to ensure it has timeless style. This will not only save you money in the long-term but will mean it is the pride and joy of your home.
The first is the colour of tiles. You will more than likely be aware that the majority of pools here and overseas use blue hues. This is because of how they distribute light, ultimately resulting in a cleaner look.
That isn’t to say that you can’t bring a bit more pizzazz to your pool. Consider placing a mosaic focal point on the bottom to really bring the ‘wow’ factor. A well-thought out design will instantly make it more luxurious and less like the local swimming baths.
The next step is making sure you keep your tiles clean and maintain their impressive look. They need a little TLC every now and then, so invest in a specified cleaning product to wash above the waterline. To keep the actual water free of bacteria, buy a chlorine tab that is specifically for swimming pools and follow the directions on the packet.
To really add some style, think about the surrounding area and not just the pool itself. If it’s indoors, use designer Versace ceramic tiles to cover the poolside and strike the perfect balance between contemporary decor and classic influences.
In order to save yourself time and avoid ruining the beauty of what you have envisioned, hire a trusted tiler to carry out the decorative work for you.
Your Home Spa
Your spa could be a separate entity in your house or you could add the spa feel to your bathroom in a few easy steps.
Choose soothing hues, such as neutral and pastel shades that are inspired by the calming sea. Also consider using various shapes and tile designs to create a much more expensive and relaxing feel.
Remember to dot various sizes of scented candles around the room so that you can use it as a spa whenever you feel. Calming scents we recommend are lavender or vanilla.
Keep various ingredients that you can use for homemade face masks, body scrubs and natural hair conditioners in an easy-reach cupboard, along with some mixing bowls. If you want to be completely relaxed from start to finish, then buy some premade items that you can scrub on without any recipes involved!
You could decide to build an indoor or outdoor sauna to turn your home into the perfect evening getaway. Consider using tiles instead of wooden slats to make for easy cleaning.
Or you could install a hot tub for you to enjoy a glass of wine after a stressful day.
Whatever you decide, be sure to do your research properly to make sure you are able to have the most enjoyable and relaxing experience possible.
