The Bathroom. It might be the most important room in your house and quite frankly, unless you live alone, it’s the only time you’re actually by yourself. Since you spend quite some time in there, why not make it look good?

If you are going to splurge anywhere in your bathroom, update your towels and bath rug first. A soft, fluffy, neutral-colored towel goes a long way if you are trying to turn your basic bathroom into a spa-like oasis.
Dim the lights
Cursed with über-bright overhead lights? Install a dimming switch if you can, turning those harsh lights into sexy mood lighting.
If you are in a rental and can’t install dimmers, add in a selection of alternate lighting: Small lamps, sconces, and candles galore.
Engage all of your senses
Speaking of candles: Place ones with a relaxing scent you love all around the room, ready to be lit when you’re itching for a bubble bath. If candles aren’t your thing, consider potpourri or scented diffusers.
Swap out your showerhead

Consider your counter: Are your beauty and hygiene supplies just strewn about randomly? If so, adding a few small trays can mean the difference between a mess and an artful arrangement.

A bathroom should not be a plant-free zone. Not only do they help clear the air, but they are an easy way to add color, personality, and drama to a stale bathroom. And thanks to the higher level of humidity, the plants are much easier to keep alive (even for a green thumb!).
Not sure which plants are best? Try aloe vera, bamboo, and philodendrons.
Get a bathtub tray
What’s more luxe than a wooden bathtub tray? It got space for your book, your loofah, your glass of wine — everything you need for the relaxing home-spa day of your dreams.
