In today’s fast-paced world, taking time for yourself and prioritizing self-care has become more important than ever. During life’s busiest moments, finding ways to escape for calm and personal care is vital.

The solution: transform the bathroom into a self-care sanctuary.

For many, the bathroom is the only space to enjoy a truly private escape from life, kids, work and the world. It is also where we take care of essential tasks that prepare us to face the day and unwind at night.

Creating a Calming Space

Adding color and texture to your bathroom can contribute to creating a serene and calming space. Take cues from spas that use visual aesthetics to reinforce a peaceful, comforting environment.


Paint the walls in soothing tones like blues or greens. Add wallpaper with a subtle pattern to create a visually pleasing environment. Plants and natural elements can also bring a sense of tranquility.

Clear chaotic noises and opt for sounds that enhance your mood. Invest in a wireless waterproof speaker to stream music while in the shower or going through a daily routine. Relax with instrumentals or nature sounds, get energized with upbeat tunes and use white noise to clear your head for a moment.

Use essential oils, scented candles or reed diffusers to fill the air with calming fragrances such as lavender or eucalyptus. Aromatherapy positively impacts mood, reduces stress and promotes relaxation.

Confidently Clean Routine

When you think of self-care, don’t forget the toilet, where so much time in the bathroom is spent. Ditch the scratchy toilet paper and cold toilet seat and opt for a more relaxing, cleaner and spa-like experience.

Replace your toilet seat with TOTO’s WASHLET bidet seats, which provide a heated seat, warm-water personal cleansing, and warm-air drying with adjustable temperature and pressure controls with self-cleaning options.


Not only do bidet seats enhance self-care routines with a superior clean, they also contribute to overall health and well-being. Gentle warm-water cleansing and warm-air drying are ideal for individuals with sensitive skin or suffering from certain medical conditions. It can also provide a more independent life for people with mobility issues. Heated seats also provide relief for stiff joints.

The Wonder of Water

Whether you want a refreshing start to the day or a calming end, look no further than the shower. Select a showerhead with different spray patterns and water pressure options. Some even filter impurities from the water, promoting healthier skin and hair.

TOTO’s two-mode round showerhead delivers large, air-infused drops of water with just the right amount of stimulation. Bathers feel encased in far more water than they are using, resulting in a pleasurable shower experience while reducing water consumption. The Active Wave water technology offers a vigorous shower experience, ideal for relaxing tired muscles.

A refreshing shower can be a time for reflection where you can add a mindful moment to the beginning or end of your day, find space to spark creativity, and relax or unwind.

Transforming your bathroom into a self-care oasis doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. By replacing your traditional toilet seat with a bidet seat, upgrading your showerhead, adding color and texture, and incorporating pleasant scents and sounds, you can create a space that promotes health, wellness and relaxation.
