From a simple bathroom to a luxurious spa


Enjoyable, spa-like treatment in the bathroom can go a long way in getting a buyers attention, and it can be done for cheap and still feel luxurious.

Here are four simple tips:

1. Use light colors. Try light color palettes, such as seafoam green, light blue and white. Then finish the look by using simple black-and-white photographs of ocean waves or your favorites on the walls.

2. Choose white fabrics. White gives you a clean, crisp feel even if you accent with color. Try white towels and bath mats to brighten the bathroom.

3. Play calming music. Get a small iPod dock or sound machine and play music with ambient nature sounds, ocean waves, or forest breezes.

4. Accessorize. Fill glass cylinders with seashells, river rocks, soap or cotton pads. Also, display a basket with rolled towels.

It doesn’t take much to feel like your are in a spa or relaxing retreat in the busy, crazy lives we live in.
