Moving into a new apartment is an exciting adventure, but sometimes, the standard bathroom design may not quite match the serene spa-like atmosphere you crave. Thankfully, with a few simple redecorating tips, you can transform your new apartment's bathroom into a tranquil retreat reminiscent of your favorite spa. Here are some ideas to help you create a soothing sanctuary in your new space:


Declutter and Simplify

Moving is the perfect opportunity to declutter! Clearing out unnecessary items will not only make your new space feel larger, but also create a more serene environment. Store toiletries and other essentials in baskets or organizers to keep countertops clean and clutter-free.

Choose a Calming Color Palette

Selecting the right color palette can instantly set the tone for your spa-inspired bathroom. Opt for soft, neutral tones such as whites, creams, and light grays to create a calming atmosphere. Incorporating natural elements like bamboo or wood accents can add warmth and depth to the space.


Upgrade Your Shower Experience

Enhance your daily routine by upgrading your shower experience! Consider installing a rainfall showerhead for a luxurious feel or adding a handheld showerhead for added convenience. Invest in plush, high-quality towels and a comfortable bathmat to complete the spa-like experience.


Add Greenery

Introducing plants into your bathroom not only adds a touch of natural beauty but also improves air quality and promotes relaxation. Choose low-maintenance plants like peace lilies, snake plants, or bamboo to thrive in the bathroom's humid environment. Place them on countertops, shelves, or even hang them from the ceiling to add a refreshing touch of greenery.

Illuminate with Soft Lighting

Lighting plays a crucial role in creating a tranquil ambiance. Opt for soft, diffused lighting rather than harsh overhead lights. Consider using candles to create a soothing glow during bath time. Adding renter-friendly LED strip lights around mirrors or under cabinets can also provide subtle illumination while adding a modern touch to the space.


Invest in Luxurious Accessories

Elevate your bathroom decor with luxurious accessories that evoke a spa-like feel. Invest in quality bath salts, essential oils, and scented candles to create a sensory experience during your relaxation rituals. Display these items in elegant containers or trays to add a touch of sophistication to your space.

By incorporating these redecorating tips, you can transform your new apartment bathroom into a serene spa oasis where you can escape the stresses of daily life and indulge in moments of relaxation and self-care. Many Aspen Square communities also already come with upgraded bathroom features such as vanity lighting, marble-like countertops, and more to create the perfect canvas for a spa-like retreat right at home!
