If you’ve been daydreaming about a long-awaited spa retreat all summer but haven’t had a chance or the cash to escape the city, why not bring a touch of relaxation into your own space? After all, you won’t need to escape to an exotic spa if you can turn your own shower into a personal oasis. Here are a few great tips for creating the perfect getaway right in your backyard (or should we say, right in your own bathroom).

After all, this is the fastest and easiest way to bring a burst of glamour to your space. It may be time to tear off that dated beige plastic sheet, and add some colour with a fresh new print. We love this alluring and unique Romantic Floral Scarf Shower Curtain, $44 from Urban Outfitters.

2. Update your tiles for a modern and sophisticated look: Gritty, yellowing and aged tiles won’t do you any favours in crafting a heavenly shower oasis. Try updating your space with bold accent tiles, or embarking on a reno project with completely revamped shower tiles! Classic white and sophisticated neutrals are both smart choices, while a colour-blocked tile scheme with a pretty blue accent shade will make you feel like you’re on vacation.

3. Add professional lighting to your shower for a fabulous escape: Transform your shower into a soothing and illuminated escape with a professionally installed lighting fixture. While it may seem like a strange place to have centre-stage lighting, the right light makes a difference in helping a tiny apartment shower feel like a luxurious suite.
