10 budget-wise ways to change your boring bathroom to an at-home spa – Gulf News
Your bathroom can be turned into a tranquil retreat with just a few touches such as plants, scented soaps, candles, a soothing colour scheme and storage. A bathroom makeover doesn’t need to be a huge renovation, a few simple updates can go a long way.
A spa is the ultimate relaxation zone, but it is also a sensory experience that rejuvenates the mind, body and soul. You can achieve the same concept and experience of luxury spas in your own home.
1. It’s time for bathroom makeover
Revamping your bathroom comes down to two things: tiles and lighting. To make your bathroom the ultimate zen zone, getting vibrant tiles and using unique tile shapes will help.
Nathalie Khouri, an interior designer and Instagram content creator (@thecozyinteriors) recommends opting for a more timeless and classic bathroom design. She said: “For your primary bathroom, we always recommend getting tiles with lighter tones that stand the age of time and don’t go out of fashion quickly. Dare to use tiles in different shapes like honeycomb or mosaic. They are so timeless.”
Your bathroom shouldn’t have to be a dim room. Make it a more inviting and tranquil place by playing with light. “Lighting is key, especially around the vanity. Ensure you have proper mirrors with backlit lighting,” said Khouri. All of this will cost more than the options listed below, so you could look at retiling partially.

2. Upgrade your shower head
For those who don’t have a grand bathtub, having a new shower head with settings and a sleek design is a must for anyone trying to create an at-home spa.
Khouri also provided another tip, investing in high-quality showers. “We have two types of clienteles, the ones that love baths and the ones that don’t. For the latter, we always ensure we invest in the best rain showers. This creates the ultimate home spa.”
If you do have a bathtub, attaching a caddy is a convenient tool to place your tea, book or tablet and will make your bubble bath more indulgent.

3. Add a luxurious touch with gilded details
Add a luxurious feel to your bathroom with gold details. Adding a few tasteful brass and golden touches without overdoing it will give your bathroom a luxe and modern feel.
Cynthia Salloum (@whitehavendecor), a home styling and décor content creator based in the UAE suggests that adding a few gold touches can do a complete 180 makeover to your bathroom. She said: “Consider swapping your current handles and faucets for some more gilded options to give that instant luxurious feel. And don’t forget to add a rain shower head.”
4. Wrap your dull bathroom walls and tiles
Incorporating a bold accent will make your bathroom stand out. Adding new tiles and painting your walls can be labour intensive and frankly quite expensive. Using wall paper is not only a better alternative financially, but …….
