Work, social obligations, the kids — your life is “go, go, go.” Sometimes it’s impossible to find even the slightest moment for yourself, until you head home to your bathroom oasis and find a calmness to melt your stress away.

But what if you don’t feel this relaxation when you enter your bathroom? Then, clearly, it’s time for some changes. To turn your bathroom from run-of-the-mill to the luxurious spa you deserve, recreate your space with any or all of these projects and you’ll find the relaxing, soothing environment you’ve always dreamed about.

• Find the space you deserve. You can’t feel comfortable when you’re cramped. Many causes of bathroom claustrophobia — hair care products, towels, shaving/brush apparatus — can be easily handled with improved mirrored cabinet options. Adding a bathroom vanity with functional storage helps to get the larger items off the counter and out of sight.

• Let there be natural light. Create a more natural feel in your bathroom by adding natural light to your space with a skylight. After a long hard day, imagine how calm you’ll feel with a skylight placed over your bathtub, allowing you to watch the clouds float by overhead while you soak

• Upgrade your tub or shower. If you truly want to recreate the spa experience in your bathroom, then upgrades to your tub or shower are a must. Larger tubs or contoured tubs create that spa feel and encourage long soaking sessions. If you’re after that whirlpool feel, look for a tub with jets that are adjustable. To make your shower more luxurious, look for options that allow your shower to double as a steam room or sauna.

After a busy day, it’s nice to know there’s a relaxing retreat you can call your own and it’s just waiting for you. Get started on your bathroom renovation today and your bathroom oasis will be ready before you know it.
