1. Set the stage for serenity.

This bathroom exudes the clean, calm feeling of a wellness center. Part of this look is the opalescent, ceiling-to-floor mosaic tiles in soothing shades of white and gray. Recreate this look with similar tiles. If you’re on a budget, stick to white paint with borders of tile backsplash around the tub.

2. Warm up the space with clever lighting.

A single hanging light fixture in translucent materials gives off light without being too overbearing. Add plenty of candles for extra ambiance.

3. Add function to function:

Who says a bathroom is just for primping on-the-go? Give your space extra function by incorporating a seating area for a few moments of quiet relaxation all to yourself.

4. Cushion the space with cozy textiles.

Soften the hard surfaces of a bathroom with comfortable cushions, towels and pillows. You’ll never want to leave!

5. Freshen with fruit.

Add a bowl full of oranges for a sweet citrus scent that calms your senses and packs a whole lot of color.
