Creating the perfect home spa has several elements you can focus on – from selecting furniture and items to choosing the right colors and products. We’ll detail how to create a spa at home, use Feng Shui to declutter, and the best methods for choosing furniture and colors.
Wanting to create a spa at home is an admirable goal and one that will see countless benefits. Fully maximizing your living spaces while minimizing clutter is all part of this valuable journey. Let’s dive into it!
How to Go About Key Interior Design Elements
Furnishing your home spa starts with the material you choose. Each type of material, like wood and stone, will create a different “feel” to the room. Creating the right balance is a key component when it comes to figuring out how to create a spa at home.
Use The Right Materials
The most suitable materials for your home spa furniture and items include the following:
- Stone – Stone creates a warm and welcoming appearance and according to general psychology, it is one of the best materials to promote wellness and a calm state of mind. Having natural material in your home like stone will often reduce anxiety and create a sense of relaxation. Stone is also low maintenance and durable.
- Wood – Wood is visually soothing and natural while appearing sophisticated. The warm tones will give any space a vibrant and balanced tone.
- Glass – The very definition of transparency, glass creates an illusion of space and an airy feel to any room, which affects our psychology in a magical way. Spacious and light-filled rooms reduce stress, anxiety, and depression while boosting happiness. It gives any space a clean and relaxing appearance. Thus, glass and wood are favorite choices, with touches of stone to balance and compliment this ensemble.
- Steel – Precise, clean, and hygienic. Steel is a wonderful complimentary material you can use for your home spa, like Towel Racks for Bathroom Wall Decor backed by the vibrancy of sleek wood. Combining modern and natural materials makes for a rustic chic interior.
Use The Right Colors
Whether we’re aware of it, our moods and psychology are greatly impacted by color. There’s a reason our ancestors were aware of color therapy, although they probably called it something else entirely. Some hues and color shades are inherently relaxing to our brains, while others will inadvertently cause tension and disharmony. Remember, the key is delicate and not disruptive.
There are shades that will complement each other while other combinations cause a visual contrast that’s unpleasant to our sight and sense of calm.
Colors to avoid in your home spa include the following:
- Striking colors, like optic white
- Bold colors, like red and orange
- Stark colors and contrasts
Colors to focus on in your home spa, include:
- Light sages and soft greens
- Sky blues and soft hues
- Soft, neutral, and earthy colors
Think about the most relaxing spaces you’ve experienced in nature and other places and try to recreate the natural color combinations. The trick is not to go crazy with too many colors and find a few that complement each other. Pick a color pallet that you find peaceful and beautiful and remember, it’s all about minimalism and harmony.
Use The Right Furniture Designs
What we choose to place in our home spaces and spas will make or break the design of a room. Balance, personal style, and practicality are crucial when choosing your furniture and spa equipment.
This is where color, material, and design play a vital role in the furniture you choose. Using shelves, tables, and other storage units, you can combine practical minimalism with style and elegance.
Using dual-purpose items like the Ornavo Home Storage Ottoman to store your self-care products will declutter areas of your home and spa without wasting space. This creates a sense of calm with order and sleek style.
Shelving is also an invaluable tool for organizing your home spa products or household items. When there’s a sense of organization, your mind will immediately start to relax. Using items like this IRONCK Bookshelf will maximize your room management while also discouraging clutter and the inevitable chaos of stuff piling up in corners.
The purpose of a home spa is practicality and relaxation, and items like the ROGMARS Industrial Pipe Shelving are a fantastic way to arrange and organize your everyday items and self-care products while also giving your bathroom a rustic feel.
How to Declutter Your Home And Spa Using Feng Shui
Feng shui has been a concept known for hundreds of years, with the belief that the spaces we inhabit have a natural flow and energy. If those spaces are cluttered and full of obsolete objects, this will create a clog and blockage to this energy flow. Imagine a wind that is always flowing. If there are walls and too much stuff surrounding you, it will be difficult to feel the breeze or airflow.
This is essentially how clutter in our homes can affect our state of mind and feelings of calmness. The negative impact of unorganized and packed spaces will drain your energy. Rooms will get stagnant and without realizing it, you don’t get any more joy from the spaces that once brought peace.
Benefits of Decluttering:
- Enhanced sense of wellness
- Feeling rested and refreshed mentally and physically
- More physical and mental energy
- Loose unnecessary attachments to your physical possessions
- Sense of newfound inspiration and vitality
- A flow and spacious feel to the spaces in your home
It may feel painful and impossible when starting your decluttering process. The best and only way to begin is to ask yourself: Is this item precious or sentimental? Do I need this item or am I just hanging on to it? Do I love this item?
When we surround ourselves with stuff that makes us feel positive, those feelings will reinvigorate our joy for life in general. Would you rather have a home filled with useless things that affect your state of mind negatively, or have objects that are fewer but meaningful? This is the essence of Feng Shui.
How to Complete Your Home Spa With Finishing Touches
There are items you can invite into your living space that will positively impact your mind, creating a productive and spacious environment. It’s the simple things like an Over The Door Towel Rack that will save space, organize a once-cluttered zone, and bring a newfound flow and vitality to your living spaces.
Introduce Relaxing Aromas
Aroma is also vital when creating inviting and peaceful settings within your home. We’ve found this 2-in-1 Candle and Fragrance Warmer does the job well. This versatile machine heats and melts both wax and candles by using a melting dish and a warming plate design.
Having an Essential Oil Diffuser is another way to actively create soothing and peaceful environments. Our senses are one of the main sources of our anxiety and stress, and smell is a powerful way we can cleanse out stagnant and unwanted negativity. Using lavender, chamomile, lemon, or rose essential oil in your diffuser is a surefire way to relax and unwind after a stressful day.
Livening Up The Place With Décor
We underestimate the value of objects and their effect on our minds. When you choose items of worth and value to your mental health, you can fill your home spa and living spaces with style and Zen.
Books are a great way to add character to a space and why not include them in your home spa experience? You can start with this little guide called Stop Overthinking: The Path to Calm, which tackles on how to find focus and peace within your mind. Not much of a reader? This 3-Tier Relaxation Tabletop Fountain can ease your mind in its own unique way.
You can also play around with your room’s ambience through lighting. One of our favorite trinket additions for a home spa is this beautiful calming Moon Night Lamp, casting your living space in a warm and inviting glow. Candles can also easily shift your mood as the light dances around your room. These cute Cactus and Succulent Tealight Candles will surely be a great addition to your space.
The best of both worlds does exist, with comfort and style elegantly merged. Making the perfect home spa doesn’t require piles of products and an endless sea of furniture.
With a few well-placed pieces and space-saving units to display and organize your things, you can revolutionize your entire living space.
