How to Make a Haven of Zen and Tranquility In Your Bathroom

Renovating your bathroom is one of the best gifts you can give to yourself. You’ll finally have space in your home where you can be completely yourself, without worrying about keeping up appearances or looking nice. When you step into your new bathroom, you should feel like you’re stepping over the threshold of Zen and tranquility. You will finally be able to forget about the world and focus on making yourself feel good. This is your chance to get the most out of your bathroom and these ideas will help show you just how amazing your life can be if you take them into account when remodeling.

1. Think about storage space

A cluttered bathroom is not a bathroom you can relax in. Before you start renovating, you should take a good look at your bathroom and all of the little things in it. The shampoo bottles, the soaps, the detergent, the towels, the cleaning supplies, and everything in between should be examined and reevaluated. Get rid of the things you don’t need and divide the ones you do need into categories.

This will help you greatly in your renovation process because you’ll know exactly what kind of storage space you need. With adequate storage space, you’ll never have to worry about the bathroom feeling cluttered again. That helps a lot with feeling relaxed, as you don’t have to put up with any messes every time you enter the room.

Another benefit of adequate storage space is that it makes your bathroom more slick and elegant. If you match the storage to the color of the room, you’ll also match the feel and ambiance the color created in the first place.

One thing to pay attention to in this scenario is not to have too much storage occupying the room. This is especially true for smaller bathrooms. If you overdo it and add cabinets and counters everywhere, you’ll just end up blocking your bathroom in. The ideal solution is to choose ada compliant bathroom sinks and vanities that offer the recommended knee clearance space. 

Those who want only the design of their bathroom to greet them when they enter it, without any other visible details, should choose closed storage furniture. On the other hand, those who like seeing something other than the bathroom furniture can go for open storage solutions. In each case, you’ll be creating an environment that suits your needs and preferences best, thus ensuring you can easily relax in your new oasis.

2. Choose a glass shower

There’s nothing fancier and more relaxing than a glass shower. You won’t have to deal with annoying curtains or shower doors any longer. We all know these things prevent us from relaxing fully and enjoying our shower completely. You should get rid of your current shower completely and build one in its place.

Replace the tiles and make sure they’re high-quality so you can clean them easily and so you don’t slip on them. The only thing left to do is to dd the glass. Make sure the area is wide so you have more room in the shower and feel more comfortable when you’re bathing.

You can add a door, but if you want to be more modern and give yourself complete freedom, just leave space between two pieces of glass. A glass shower isn’t complete without a rain shower head or an updated shower head that has more than one function. You’ll bring your showers to levels of relaxation you didn’t even know were possible.

On top of all of this, glass showers are accessible to everyone. If you have any older members of the family or anyone with any kind of disabilities, you’ll be giving them a relaxation oasis as well as yourself if you choose to install a glass shower. Plus, you’ll be able to enjoy your showers on the same level of amazing regardless of how old you get.

3. Go for natural light

Being under artificial lights all the time can be rather damaging for your mental and physical health. Most offices today rely on artificial lighting to get their employees through the day, leaving them feeling dazed, disoriented, and exhausted at the end of the workday. Things just get worse if you’re stuck at home without natural lighting. In the long run, this can result in eye problems and can make you feel way more tired and less focused than needed.

That’s why this renovation job should include some new windows, too. You should add big windows to the room to promote good health and tranquility. Choose a sunny side and let the light shine through. This will give you more energy and improve the cognitive function of your brain. Every time you go in the bathroom, you’ll come out a brand-new person- completely relaxed and full of energy.

Another benefit of this is that you’ll be giving yourself a nice view of the outside. This is especially true for those who have a backyard. The view of nature will work together with the natural light to relax you further, thus truly turning your bathroom into a Zen oasis.

4. Change up the tiles

The tiles you surround yourself with can make or break your bathroom experience. It’s important to surround yourself with natural and soft colors so as to inspire relaxation. Remember, only the best bathroom supplies come into play. There’s no room for anything less than perfect when you’re creating your oasis.

Go for modern white and black patterns, as you’ll get a timeless design that will last forever while still giving yourself an environment you can thrive in. The tiles will provide a soothing surface for your eyes to rest on while you enjoy your bubble bath and sink into relaxation further.

Don’t think that classic tiles or more neutral colors exclude creativity, though. If you want the best of both worlds, you can always choose two neutral colors or different shades of the same one and create a masterpiece from your bathroom walls. This works even better if you’ve got a small bathroom because your walls double as your decoration so you don’t have to waste room on any other decor.

5. Add a sunken tub

While you’re already renovating, why not splurge on a sunken tub? You haven’t lived until you’ve had a nice bubble bath in a tub that’s already in the ground. You don’t have to worry about spilling anything, you have enough room to a glass of wine and whatever else you might need right next to the tub.

On top of that, this is a statement piece like no other. Sunken tubs are especially suitable for big bathrooms as they help you fill out the room and make it look fantastic. There’s nothing more impressive than a sunken tub right in the middle of a big bathroom that simply invites you to enjoy it fully.

This is one of the best ways to promote tranquillity and relax before you even step into the tub and begin your relaxation journey.


As you can see, your bathroom can be everything you ever wanted it to be if you just take a chance on self-care and add zen to your interior design. We’re confident that you’ll finally get to put those long workdays behind and that you’ll lead a much happier life after the renovation. Your bathroom will give you the emotional and psychological awakening you didn’t even know you needed, and all because of the amazing relaxing properties you install in it.
