Bath time can be the most relaxing and enjoying time of the day. There are so many different things that you can use when relaxing in that big garden tub of yours. Lets talk about some of the things that can make your bathing more relaxing and enjoyable.
How to relax:
Your bathtub can be a major part of your relaxation time. There are many different kinds of tubs out now to fit everyone’s needs. Most people have standard size tubs for one person, they can be very relaxing too, just add some things around it to make it what you like. Fill up the tub with your favorite smelly bubbles or relaxing oils. The hot water and all those bubbles around you make you feel special and important.
How to create a romantic atmosphere in your bathroom:
Do you like getting romantic in the tub? Try the garden tub it is a good one for small areas and large enough for the second person to join you. Garden tubs are nice when they are sunken into your floor area. Box the tub in and install a music system into it. Music is always relaxing to everyone. Turn the music on a good easy listening music channel or insert a CD into it, maybe an mp3 player too. Garden tubs and music is just one type of tub to spice up your day.
When installing a tub for romance and relaxation be sure to think about where you’re going to install it and the sitting around it. Your décor means a lot when you’re trying to relax and enjoy the surrounding area. Choose a room away from the master bedroom where you can be away from everything and just be alone. Before installing your tub, decide on a theme and how you’re going to fill in the empty spaces. Take one end of the room and put up a wall to make a place for the stool and a shower separate from your tub. Putting the sink in the same room with the tub is ok, since you can color and coordinate the colors to both rooms to match the bedroom.
Put mirrors around your tub; box the tub in putting inserts at one end for that glass of wine you might want to have while relaxing. Add candles so when they are lit they can glow into the mirrors. Sounds romantic doesn’t it.
Install Garden tubs with jets in it. Jets are a good way to get that massage you’ve been wanting. Some of them even have heaters connected so your water doesn’t get cold. Be careful not to fall asleep and drown in there it can be done so don’t stay in there to long with the jets on they can make you to relaxed. Again, don’t forget to add the mirrors and candles.
Put a chair decorated to match your theme in one corner where you can sit to dry off and add that lotion you might have for your feet. After relaxing in that tub, you need to smell good afterwards. A little bit of body lotion goes a long way. Match your lotion smells to go with the oil you’ve used to take the smells with you when you’re done. Body lotions are affordable; as well, you can find coupons, deals, sales, clearances, etc online to help you save money.
How to find oils, bathtubs, candles, lotions, and more:
Check out the department stores; maybe go on line to check out the candles, lotions, and your oils. Try different smells and enjoy.
That Bare Wall Benefiting from Bathroom Accessories
How to fill in the blanks with rubber stamps:
Is there a bare wall in your bathroom? Is the wall bare so that you cannot find a theme to match? Have you considered wallpaper, yet nothing seems to fit? Why not put your creativeness and ideas to work and make your own wallpaper design. I bet no one else will have one like it.
Before you get started, decide what you really want to put on a bare wall you are trying to cover. Make sure you are creative and try to use the same theme you are working with, such as birds. This can be done in any room of you house where you have a wall and want to do something different.
You’ll need to shop around and find some rubber stamps or stencils; you can even draw the design if you want. The rubber stamps, stencils, all of these things can be found in the craft department of most department stores. Be sure to grab the brushes you’ll need; the variety pack of brushes is nice since you have different sizes and styles all in one.
Usually in the same department you’ll be able to purchase the paints you’ll need, use ceramic paint, it comes in many colors and shades to accommodate your needs. Clean up is a breeze just using warm and soapy water to clean up the paint to change from one color to another is all you need to do.
Whenever doing a project like this, you should do it twice to be sure you have the right design and colors that you’ll want to use. If you need more stamps or stencils just go to another department store, wherever craft supplies are sold, they all sell different ones. Cover the area that you are going to stamp on with freezer paper. The paper you can buy wherever groceries are sold, usually in the meat department. When putting up the paper just stick a thumbtack on the corner and a few places in the center to hold it in place.
Now you are ready to make the first copy of your wall project. Go for it and start stamping away.
It is hard to place everything so they are exactly spaced but don’t worry you can fill in those empty spots later. When going from one color to another, if the colors are going to touch make sure that the first color completely dries? When finished, let dry and look at it for a couple of days to make sure this is what you want. Then go on to the permanent design.
How to remove the paper?
Now you’re ready to do your wall, taking down the paper carefully so you don’t forget your color combinations. Keep it for a pattern to work from. Remember no two projects are the same. That’s the fun of the whole project; no one will have one like it.
Paint your wall in the color of your choice making it a light color to match the colors you are going to stamp on it. Using your pattern, you have set aside; start stamping again on the original wall. Again, make sure each color is completely dry before stamping another color so they do not touch each other. If do not like the pattern you’ve done just fill in the spaces with something else or add a new color somewhere. No matter how many times you use this technique you’ll never be able to do two projects the same. This is the tactic known as creativity. Now that you have your paints, consider the flowery bathroom accessories.
