Who couldn’t use a little extra relaxation these days? For Des Moines homeowners looking to maximize their space or to spruce up their home for potential buyers, the bathroom is a great place to start. With a few easy updates and adjustments, you can turn an average bathroom into a peaceful oasis. The real key is appealing to the senses. Let’s look at how you can get started:

Soft Textiles

If you want your bathroom to feel luxurious, starting with some luxurious textiles can instantly create the right vibe. Swapping out some older towels for new plush ones is an easy fix. Not only are these a treat to enjoy after a hot shower or bath, but they also add to the overall atmosphere when stored in your bathroom. In addition to towels, a soft rug to keep your feet warm is another great option to make your bathroom feel even cozier.

Adjustable Lighting

Maybe your bathroom oasis is somewhere you can spend an hour relaxing on a Saturday morning, or maybe it’s your ten minutes of alone time for the day. Whatever the case, you want to make this a peaceful space where you can relax. Installing a dimmer on your light or adding some other lighting options so that you can have softer light while enjoying the space is a great option. Even hanging up some twinkle lights can quickly create a spa-like feeling.

Candles & Scents

Don’t forget about the power of scents. Candles can be great for creating that warm lighting, and they can also contribute to a calming aroma. If candles aren’t your thing, maybe an essential oil diffuser is the way to go. Choose a scent to help you relax or refresh and enjoy. Lavender, eucalyptus, and citrus scents are all great choices for a bathroom oasis.

Quiet Music

Maybe you’re hoping to decompress with a hot shower or bath after a long day. Adding some relaxing music can help. Bluetooth speakers make it so easy for us to take our music wherever we go, and for homeowners wanting their speakers as close as possible, waterproof options even let you bring your speaker in the shower. Even if you only have time for a song or two, music can really contribute to the unwinding.


Is your bathroom somewhere you can relax? Is it a room you’d like to transform? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
