Indulgent bathroom ideas for a winter soak

Looking to unwind, relax and reflect on your day? There’s nothing more appropriate than an indulgent soak in your bath, especially on a cold winters evening. In this post, I’m going to tell you my top bathroom ideas for an indulgent winter soak.
Indulgent bathroom ideas for a winter soak
Get the temperature just right
With ice-cold winds and frosty windows in sight we all yearn for a hot and fulfilling soak in our baths. However, the one thing you must be sure to get right is, the temperature. Too cool and you'll end up feeling disappointed. Too hot and it'll feel like your stripping the skin off your body! Preparation is the key. Make sure the hot water settings on your boiler are switched on well ahead of time. 

If you have a thermostatic mixer tap, you can set your perfect temperature, then set your taps running.

Set the mood with lighting
There’s nothing more relaxing than the perfect ambient light to wash away your thoughts, so set the mood with your bathroom lighting. This can be anything from turning on the mirror LED’s, switching on the whirlpool bath lights (if you’re so lucky) or have a light on in another room close by. 

If you don’t have built-in bath lighting or the options for lower dimmed lighting in your bathroom opt for candles for the perfect ambience. 

Add bubbles and scents
Bubbles are the perfect treat for any indulgent soak. Choose from a variety of different scents, like fresh and fruity or luxurious and warming, to suit your mood. Some come with a range of health benefits, enriched with essential oils or containing blends of herbs and spices. I’d suggest going for lemongrass and peppermint to ease muscle tensions and joint pain. Magnesium Booster Bath Salts are also perfect for restoring muscles. 

Lavender and ylang ylang are well known to help combat stress and create a sense of calm. 

Entertain yourself
Listen to your favourite tracks or playlist whilst you bathe, using a waterproof bathroom speaker or a Bluetooth shower head. Simply link it up to your phone and you’re away. Waterproof bathroom TVs are becoming increasingly popular, meaning you never have to miss your weekly soap opera or wash away your thoughts with that all-time favourite film. 

Extra comforts
Your winter soak doesn’t have to stop the minute you step out of your bath so make sure you have a fluffy and sumptuous bath mat at the ready too. Step out of your bath and warm up with underfloor heating

Heated towel rails are also a great addition and help to add a touch of luxury to your bathroom design.
