While a key, function part of the home, like the kitchen, the bathroom is also a key point for alone and de-stress time. A study of 2,000 adults found 42 per cent often escape to the bathroom for a bit of peace and quiet away from the rest of their household. It is such a happy place 55% regularly have an extra-long bath or shower so they can have more time to themselves.
But not everyone can indulge in redoing a bathroom and making it into something spectacular, so here are some easy hacks to transform your bathroom into a spa.

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.

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.
