With the tinsel safely packed away for another year and the last of the pine-needles cleared from the living room, it seems like 2020 is finally here. And, as with the beginning of any year, you’re probably seeing a lot of “New Year, New You” splashed across TV and the web. Here at The Whirlpool Bath Shop, we know personal development is important, but you know what else is up there? Having a lovely bathroom. So, we figured today’s post would be less “New You” and more “New Bathroom”.
Here are four ways to give your bathroom the five-star treatment to kick off 2020 in style.
4. Bring some life to your bathroom with houseplants
Houseplants and other forms of greenery were a big trend for 2019, and it’s one which looks set to continue growing in 2020. Not only do houseplants make your bathroom look better – they actively improve the air quality, too. If you do plan to add a few plants to your bathroom, though, you’ll want to make sure they’re comfortable in humid environments. There are plenty of popular plants which do like a bit of moisture in the air, so we’d recommend that you look into spider plants, aloe vera, and other succulents – or even cacti… if you’re feeling brave!
3. Create the essential spa-at-home experience with underwater lighting
Sprucing up your bathroom for the New Year is all about making subtle changes which have big impact, and one of the biggest you’ll find is with underwater lighting. Built with the concepts of chromotherapy in mind, adding underwater lighting to your existing bathtub is a great way to transform your everyday bathroom into a 5-star spa. Not only will you benefit from the luxurious warmth of your bath, but you’ll also enjoy a spectrum of colour to fit your mood – red, green, orange, blue… and more. There’s nothing quite like watching the caustics of the water being cast around the room as you lose yourself in a stress-busting soak.
2. Enjoy your favourite music in your bathroom (the safe way)
As we’re all well-aware, smart technology is all around us – and it’s getting more popular every day. But it can sometimes feel as though making these smart upgrades could be cost-restrictive, especially just after the festive period. But don’t worry – there is a way you can enjoy hands-free smart tech in your bathroom without breaking the bank. By installing a BlueTooth speaker shelf in your bathroom, you can unshackle your multimedia experience from your phone or tablet and instead enjoy room-filling tunes without compromise. If you’ve ever accidentally dropped your smartphone in the tub when trying to play some music in the bathroom, this one’s for you!
1. Make the ultimate upgrade with a new whirlpool bath
It wouldn’t be fair to ring in the New Year without pushing the boat out a little, so consider this option us doing that very thing. If you really want to transform your bathroom experience in a meaningful way for the New Year, surely the best way to do that is by installing a new whirlpool bath. We know what you’re thinking: ‘surely it’ll be costly’; but, in fact, it may be more affordable than you think. In fact, at The Whirlpool Bath Shop, you can have the true spa-bath experience at home for less than £350. Want to splash out a little more? No problem. There’s something to suit everyone.
