If you’ve taken a trip to a spa, you’ll know the feeling of extreme relaxation and rejuvenation you’re left with afterwards.


From pared-back décor that creates a luxurious and calming atmosphere to products that help you unwind, a spa-style bathroom is easy to achieve with these simple bathroom makeover tips.

Spa bathroom ideas

1. Natural walls

One of the easiest ways to create a tranquil, spa-like atmosphere in your bathroom is by painting the walls in earthy, natural colours. From off-white to pale green, beige, grey and brown, neutrals give a sense of calm and brighten the space. Alternatively, if you have a small bathroom with little natural light, embrace the darkness with a black bathroom to make the room feel cosy.

Another great way to achieve a more refined spa bathroom is tiling one wall behind the shower, bath or sink. Choose a natural stone to complement the rest of the colour scheme or marble countertops for added luxury.

2. Luxurious linens

Choose natural fabrics and neutral tones for your bathroom towels, bath mat, dressing gown and other soft furnishings. Linen and cotton are high-quality materials that can stand the test of time while feeling and looking luxurious in your new spa bathroom. Keep your new linens in top condition by following our towel-washing guide.

3. Spa bathroom lighting

Bathroom lighting tends to be bright, which is great when you’re getting ready in the morning but not ideal when you want to relax. If possible, install a dimmer switch to get the best of both worlds and enjoy atmospheric spa lighting at the touch of a button.

Alternatively, set the mood with candles or lamps if your overhead lights aren’t dimmable. Looking for more inspiration? Explore our dedicated guide for more bathroom lighting ideas to suit your space.

4. Mirrors

Mirrors bounce light around the room, giving the illusion of space. No matter the size of your bathroom, well-placed mirrors are essential for creating a luxurious, spa-like appearance. Find out how to install a bathroom mirror in our handy guide.

5. Wall décor

When it comes to bathroom spa wall décor, less is more. We recommend keeping the design minimal with just one stand-out artwork, adding personality to your space without cluttering it. Abstract prints or landscapes are great for evoking calm in your bathroom.

6. Plants

Plants are another way to decorate your bathroom and make it feel like a calming oasis. Some plants thrive in humid environments like bathrooms and can help prevent mould, so discover the best botanicals for bathrooms in our guide.

7. Spa-like scents

Soothing or invigorating scents like lavender, eucalyptus and citrus will instantly enhance the spa-like feeling of your bathroom. Choose candles, diffusers and bath products in your favourite fragrances, then take the time to give yourself a well-deserved pamper for the ultimate home spa experience.

8. Play relaxing spa music

Playing slow-tempo music while showering or bathing can be a great way to relax, while singing has been proven to have many positive mental and physical health benefits. Discover the perfect bathroom playlist to help you unwind and take your home spa experience to the next level.

9. Declutter your bathroom

It might seem obvious, but a messy bathroom won’t help you feel calm. Spend an afternoon decluttering and organising your space, and you’ll be surprised at what a difference it makes! We recommend investing in bathroom storage to keep extra toiletries and towels out of sight, leaving your surfaces clutter-free.

10. Choose the right showerhead

Upgrading your showerhead can transform your showering experience from mundane to luxurious. Our deluge and rainfall designs are the ultimate spa shower head, offering greater coverage for a drenching effect. Browse the full range of Mira shower heads to find the right option for your bathroom.

11. Add a bathtub

What better way to unwind and achieve a home spa experience than lighting candles and bathing with your favourite products? No matter how you like to relax while bathing – from enjoying a great book to watching a film or listening to your favourite playlist – a luxurious Mira bathtub is essential for your comfort. Our freestanding bathtubs look as impressive as they feel, helping elevate your bathroom design.
