Life sure can be pretty chaotic from time to time, can’t it? Between our jobs, families, hobbies, and social commitments, it can feel like life is just going on and on and on — and we barely have a moment to ourselves. During those moments, many of us would prefer nothing more than to book ourselves a massage or spa treatment and give our bodies and minds just what it needs to get back to feeling at its best. Alas, if you were continually booking spa treatments, then it wouldn’t be long before your finances had been obliterated. As such, it’s better to look at alternative pampering methods. Could you, for example, look at turning your home into a de facto pampering property?
We think you could! Take a read of the tips that we outline below, and you’ll be well on your way.
It’s unlikely that you’ll be able to transform your entire property into a bona fide pampering hotspot. But then again, you don’t need to. Nobody needs a laundry room that pampers them. Instead, look at focusing on the rooms where it’ll make a big difference. For example, your living room, bathroom, and bedroom. If these three rooms are big on indulgence, then you’ll be on the right track. Pay particular attention to the bathroom. Could you add a standalone bathtub or add heated towel racks? You could update your floors on a budget in one day. With those in your bathroom, you’ll never be too far from feeling absolutely divine.
As well broadly focusing on key rooms, look at making your whole house a little bit more comfortable. For this, it’s about all things soft and relaxing. Invest in some cashmere clothing and comfortable house shoes to wear at home, and you’ll always feel a million dollars. Beyond what you’re wearing, think about adding plenty of high-quality pillows and throws to your relaxation areas, such as your living room. You’ll feel amazing, especially on those winter nights when there’s nothing better than to be curled up on the couch.
Set the Tone
When you’re trying to make your home more pamper-friendly, look at adding things that’ll create a relaxed and luxurious atmosphere. The two easiest ways to do this is to add relaxing incense and atmospheric lighting to your property. It’s all about feeding the senses. For your incense, you can pick up whatever smells nice to you. For the lighting, it’s all about keeping it low and warm. It should be easy on the eyes — if it is, it’ll also be easy on the soul!
Hire a Cleaner
Finally, what about hiring a cleaner? A lot of people think that this is something for the super-wealthy, but that’s not true at all. You’re hiring a cleaner, not a live-in maid! You’ll still need to do some cleaning yourself, but you’ll quickly learn that there’s a lot of benefits to hiring a professional cleaner to work for a couple of hours every two weeks; they’ll clean places that you would otherwise overlook. Give it a try!
