If you’re in your twenties and live in a big city, then you know the feeling of moving around from apartment to apartment. It’s not a good feeling, but luckily, there are several different ways to make things easier for yourself and making you feel like you have an in-home spa. Sort of.

You can buy as many candles and incense as you like, but the main problem with these sort of bathrooms is always the showers, which are God knows how old and can offer some really awful water pressure. Turning your average bathroom into a relaxing place where you want to spend time takes a little bit of work, but it’s easier and cheaper than what you might expect.

Check out the following 5 tips on transforming your bathroom into a spa without losing half of your salary in the process:

Change Your Shower Head

A good shower head can change your life, and if you’ve never changed yours then you’ll surely appreciate this tip. Changing shower heads is very simple so you can do it yourself, and there are a few cheap (good) shower heads that you can buy online or at your nearest hardware store.

This $20 rain shower head is great if you’re using the default shower head that came with your bathroom. If you want to get a bit crazier and splurge, you can purchase this shower head for $50 that changes lights, regulates water temperature, and will make you feel like you’re showering in space.

Oil Diffusers And Candles

A candle is a really important item for your bathroom, making it smell good and providing coziness and warmth.  Oil diffusers are also great and less flammable, making you feel like you own and manage a really great spa. Both of these items are easy to purchase and really make a difference in the mood and feel of your bathroom.

Clear Toiletry Clutter

There’s nothing more stressful than a ton of toothpaste, pads, hairbrushes and lotions all piled up together because you can’t find a place to put them. Invest in jars and other containers that look good and that will keep things organized. Mason jars are a classic and cheap option for Q-tips, cotton balls, and other loose items. Be sure to get rid of the toiletries and empty bottles of product that are cluttering your bathroom in the meantime.

Bath Salts And Scented Soaps

Bath salts are great and super relaxing, doing wonders for your skin and making you feel like you’re doing a good thing by spending time in your bathroom.  While baths are time consuming and annoying (since you have to scrub your bathtub clean before you use it), they can be a pretty delicious experience with the right tools.

Bathroom Speakers

Buy a waterproof speaker for your bathroom and make yourself a playlist with natural sounds, such as rain, water, and anything else that you might find relaxing. Having this speaker will surely make your baths and showers more fun and enjoyable, while also making you feel rejuvenated, as if you spent some time doing something productive. Yay, you!
