So, here I was going through life preaching the benefits of creating a spa feeling in your bathroom, especially if you have a master bathroom.
Even if it's small, I would say, it's so much more relaxing if you treat it like a sanctuary... especially if you are staging your home for sale, but even just to treat yourself.
But, in reality, my own master bath resembled something out of the movie Poltergeist, where you open the bedroom closet to Satan's lair... only with mold and peeling wallpaper thrown in.
Recently though we pried open the door, beat back the demons and got to work.
But what I really want to point out are the two ottomans. I wanted to incorporate some seating for that spa feeling, and this is really all that would fit. (I took this photo standing in the bathtub, so although it's a good-sized bathroom, you can see it's not gigantic.)
We were skeptical at first. Would the ottomans be in the way? Would we trip on them in the night? Would they feel contrived?
So far, so good. I really like sitting there to blow dry my hair or paint my nails.
I'd give it a go in your bathroom if there's any space at all. Add a chair or a stool, a plant and a few fluffy towels and see if it doesn't transform the room.
Any other suggestions out there for creating a bit of a spa at home?
