Having a spa treatment is a lovely indulgence, good for the soul as well as the body. If your own bathroom is more Spartan than spa-like why not treat it to a bit of TLC as well? As well as splashing out on fluffy towels and lavish toiletries you can incorporate some more permanent changes to make your bathroom feel more luxurious. Here are some ideas to include in your update.

Heat: Porcelain, stone and ceramic floor tiles are all suitable for use with underfloor heating, essential for a touch of luxury along with a heated towel rail (check out our fixing guide to read about underfloor heating installation).

Lighting: make sure the lighting is flattering as well as functional. Highly polished and gloss wall tiles will bounce light around the room, whilst mosaics made from shells or with an iridescent effect can glow beautifully in candle light.

Storage: to keep all your towels, lotions and beautifying products close at hand. Build in small alcoves to accommodate such necessities.

Colour, pattern, texture:  spas are for indulging all the senses, so include surfaces that delight the eye and are beautiful to touch as well.
