Whether we like it or not one of the rooms in our home we spend the most time in is the bathroom. And, perhaps in part of the mindfulness movement, people are catching on and turning their bathrooms into a relaxing sanctuary. A room that was once at the bottom of the renovation list has quickly found itself climbing the ranks.

Looking at the overall trends one theme has certainly emerged: A spa-like bathroom.

And why not?

Take the time to slow down and pamper yourself in a luxurious new bathroom to unwind after a particularly long day. Or just to treat yourself, because hey you deserve it!

So where to start?  

Anyone can create a spa-like atmosphere with these five details (which can each be done for around or under $100 by the way).

Cedarwood bath mats have quickly become popular. They are certainly more appealing than the matching sets of fluffy carpets complete with that one that wraps around the toilet. They add a touch of Norwegian style aka hygge. But theyíre also functional in that each time they become wet they emit their wonderful cedar smell throughout the room. For those worried about how it holds up to moisture over time, cedar is known for its resistance to mold and mildew and is. Which is exactly why cedar chests were/are so popular!  

Another popular way to bring in aromatic elements of nature is via dried eucalyptus and lavender bunches. More than just beautiful to look at when in a steamy room they fill the room with their calming scent. If you donít have a vendor at your local farmerís market offering these as bunches shops like West Elm, Williams-Sonoma and Etsy will all deliver them right to your door.

An element that makes a spa so peaceful that not everyone might think to add to their own bathrooms is spa music. Give your vocal chords a break from shower karaoke and instead look for spa or meditation-themed music on apps like Spotify and Pandora. It will change the entire atmosphere of the room.

A heated towel bar seems super luxe and it is! But that doesnít make it unattainable or completely out of the budget. Chic, stylish electric models can be found for around just $100. Treat yourself to the gift of warm cozy towels after every bathing experience.  

Speaking of towels keep luxe towels on hand and easily within reach. Rolling them up to put on display on a shelf doesnít just add a more spa-like element to your home, itís also just really convenient! Just fold towels in thirds length-wise aka the long way and then roll them up. Itís easy, classy and looks like you put in way more effort than you did.

Bathroom renovations can be costly, particularly for home sellers who lack the skills and know-how to perform bathroom repairs on their own. Fortunately, there are many effective ways to revamp your bathroom and give it a distinct look and feel. Here are three tips that you can use to reinvent your bathroom on a budget: 1. Give Your Cabinets a Facelift. Drab, unattractive bathroom cabinets can be a major eyesore, particularly for home sellers who are trying to generate interest in their residences. Conversely, you can replace the hardware for your cabinets and sand, prime and paint these cabinets without having to worry about breaking your budget. New cabinet door knobs and pulls can help you transform bland cabinet doors into dazzling ones. Plus, it often is easy to replace cabinet door knobs and pulls, and you may be able to remove and install new cabinet door knobs and pulls in only minutes. Furthermore, you can sand, prime and paint cabinets to with ease. This will enable you to give your cabinet doors an eye-catching appearance quickly and effortlessly. 2. Replace Cracked or Broken Tile. Even a single cracked or broken tile can impact a homebuyer's decision to purchase your home, and you'll want to ensure that every tile looks great before you get ready to show your residence to prospective buyers. Replacing cracked or broken tile will require you to break up any loose tile with a hammer or cold chisel. Then, you'll need to clean the affected area, apply mortar to the new tile and set it in place. Also, don't forget to use a grout sealer to ensure your new tile stays in place. By doing so, you'll be able to make the tile in your bathroom look as good as new. 3. Add an Awe-Inspiring Mirror. Who says your bathroom mirror can't blend form and fashion? With a stunning mirror, you can give your bathroom a hip, chic look, one that may help your home stand out from others in a highly competitive real estate sector. Of course, you always can keep an existing bathroom mirror in place and transform its appearance with moulding as well. There are many kinds of moulding at your disposal, giving you a variety of options to choose from as you search for the best way to enhance your bathroom's appearance. No bathroom would be complete without an outstanding mirror. And if you dedicate the necessary time and resources to complete bathroom renovations, you should have no trouble adding an exquisitely designed mirror or using moulding to improve the appearance of your bathroom's existing mirror. Bathroom repairs, like many home improvement projects, can be tricky. However, your real estate agent may be able to help you figure out which repairs are critical to help you improve your chances of a quick sale. As such, you should consult with your real estate agent before you embark on any bathroom renovations to ensure your repairs will enable you to boost the value of your residence. Use bathroom renovations to make your home more attractive to homebuyers, and you may be able to give homebuyers another reason to consider your residence.
