Arguably one of the most private rooms in the house, the bathroom is a place to relax and unwind. To wash off the stress of the day and give yourself some much need pampering. If you invest in top of the line skincare and spa services to maintain your health it’s only wise to also invest in your personal oasis. You’ll extend the benefits of professional treatments and create a relaxing environment where you just might find you don’t need to leave the vicinity of your own home quite as often to fully unwind.;

Turn your normal showering experience into a serene spa-like experience with a steam shower. A steam generator is discretely installed and operated from a digital panel within the shower. More than just a relaxing experience a steam shower helps to promote blood circulation, clear skin, and easier breathing.

No one is ever happy about stepping out onto cold tile after a relaxing, hot shower. Radiant heat flooring will keep your feet warm no matter the temperature outside. This heating system works well with almost any flooring style you would install in a bathroom including natural stone. As an added bonus radiant heating also keep the room a steady, even temperature, unlike traditional heating methods.

Stay luxuriously cozy after bathing with a fluffy towel fresh off a towel warmer. With several types and styles, you’ll have no problem finding one that matches your particular taste. There are drawer varieties as well as rails. And like radiant heat flooring, it helps to keep the room warm.

Relax in a freestanding soak tub for an indulgent afternoon. Cast iron retains heat and brins classic style to your home. Another luxe option that retains heat well is a stone soak tub. Both of these require extra reinforcement to flooring but little maintenance over time. Alternatively, solid surface tubs offer a more lightweight option for your home flooring and still offer similar styles as to their cast iron and stone counterparts.

Bring extra room into your oasis with skylights. They allow for natural lighting while retaining privacy. There are tech options with built-in blinds and smart auto close features by detecting weather conditions. If placing a bid on a home with a skylight ensure to have it checked for proper installation. And if upgrading after purchase do so with a well-qualified expert.  

While nothing can replace the experience provided by spa professionals completely by investing in your bathroom you’ll create a home resort that comes pretty close. So whether you’re schedule is too packed to book a spa day or you would love to indulge in them more often these five upscale upgrades will have you looking forward to home sweet home.

After a move, everything feels fresh and energizing. This is, of course, in part because of the energy that comes with a big change. But it also comes from having a neatly, organized home. In the jumble of packing and unpacking, junk gets tossed and items get new homes. Everything gets a new dedicated area where it belongs. Everything is tidy, as it should be.

So how then can you maintain this wonderful feeling and continue to keep things neat and tidy?

First, you need to make a daily habit of doing a quick clean sweep every day. Whether you do it in the morning, afternoon or before bed isn’t important. What is important is that you do it every day.

Go through the house to make to corral up stray dishes, put items back into their dedicated places, and give homes to those who don’t have one yet.

And if you can’t think of somewhere to put it? Question its purpose and consider either donating or tossing it.

Aim to keep your surfaces clear of items. Allowing things to accumulate is one of the fastest for clutter to quickly take over. Stop it in its track by tidying up when you’re done using this “station” of your home.

Practice not being “lazy”. If you bring your tea to sip on the couch when you leave the room take your mug with you straight to the dishwasher. If you finished the last of the chips put the clip away where it belongs instead of leaving it out on the counter. Put pens back away after using them to jot out notes. Recycle magazines when you're done reading them.

If you find things are building up as clutter quickly you might have too much stuff. Which is okay, it happens!

Decluttering isn’t a one and done process. We need to consistently be assessing the things that collect in our homes and what benefit they are adding to your life. Sometimes we once used all the time have fallen out of favor or need to be repaired/replaced.

Make time once a month for a quick declutter session and once a season for a more detailed one.

And the best way to avoid clutter is to closely monitor what you’re allowing to come into your home in the first place. If you find you love to take things home just because they were free or on sale, it’s important to take a step back and ask yourself why.

After all, the less stuff we have in our homes the less there is to manage. Which means more time spent doing what you enjoy doing, like spending time with your family, and less time organizing it all.
