How to create the perfect home spa

No longer considered purely functional, the household bathroom has become a place of sanctuary and self-care – somewhere to spend an evening unwinding rather than simply rushing through a quick shower before bed.

With that in mind, you can go even further and install an entire home spa as part of your interior design, giving you ultimate relaxation in total privacy, without ever needing to visit a health club. Here we explain the key items you need to turn your home from residence to retreat – all you’ll need to add are your favourite home spa products.

A home spa hot tub or whirlpool

The first thing you can do to give your home that special spa touch is swap your bath for a whirlpool model. There’s no need for a trip to the masseuse when you can have all your aches soothed away by the warm jets.

You can even add a separate hot tub outside. Outdoor varieties don’t necessarily need good weather to be worthwhile: it’s possible to enjoy them even in the depths of winter. However, you’ll need to make sure you have access to plumbing in the right location before you install it. And of course you should always consider your privacy, by making sure it’s in a spot that isn’t overlooked or by adding a covering.

Which sauna best suits your home spa?

Saunas are part of daily life around the world because they’re considered to be so beneficial to your health. They can be taken in the morning as an invigorating start to the day, or in the evening as a relaxing experience before bed and after sports.

Before you install a sauna in your home spa you’ll need to consider what kind of sauna you prefer – whether you want it to be hot and dry like a Finnish sauna or slightly more humid such as those found in Japan. You may also prefer the steam of a Turkish bath, in which case you’ll need to ensure you have excellent ventilation so the extreme humidity doesn’t cause any damage to your home.

Extra cooling and heating

Alternating between hot and cold can be very good for your circulation and health, which is why a plunge pool or ice room is an added bonus for any home spa. Installing either one within close proximity to your sauna means you can go from one to the other easily, gaining all the associated health benefits at the same time.

Installing underfloor heating in your home spa can also add to the feeling of luxury and relaxation. Instead of a jarring transition from a soothing soak or sauna right onto a cold tiled floor, you can instead step onto a warm surface and ease back into the rest of your day at your own pace.

Added ambience

Finally, no home spa can truly be considered complete unless you can relax your mind as well as your body. That means adding a spa sound system to listen to your favourite soothing tunes, or installing some colour changing lights to take you to another world.

Once you've finished creating your luxury private escape, simply buy some of your favourite home spa products and prepare to melt away your daily stresses in the comfort of your own home.
