Set the mood with ambient lighting.

To create a spa-like ambiance in your living room, start by setting the mood with ambient lighting. Dim the lights and light some scented candles. Popular go-to calming scents like lavender, eucalyptus, or vanilla can help create a tranquil atmosphere.

Unwind in comfort.

Seating is key, especially when you’re going to be lounging. If you already have plush seating, great start! Or, you can always make any surface more comfortable by arranging throw pillows and soft blankets. A faux fur or memory foam rug can add even more comfort…and don’t forget the slippers!

Add soothing sounds to relax by.

Music has a powerful impact on relaxation and can transport you to a world of serenity. Besides, what’s a spa without soothing sounds? Play some relaxing music in the background to enhance the tranquility of your living room retreat. You can choose from nature sounds, classical melodies, or your favorite calming playlist.

Try a DIY face mask for ultimate relaxation.

Pamper yourself with a homemade face mask. You can easily mix ingredients like honey, yogurt, and oats for a natural, spa-like facial treatment. Or, if you want to go the extra mile, indulge in your favorite from Sephora like a dead sea mask or an extra hydrating coconut oil-based product. Then, your only job is to relax. Apply the mask, lie back, and let it work its magic while you enjoy the peaceful ambiance you’ve created.

Don’t forget that luxurious bedding is a must.

Transforming your bedroom into a spa sanctuary starts with the basics, and where you spend the majority of your time. Get high-quality, luxurious bedding. Crisp, clean sheets with a high thread count and a fluffy duvet can make all the difference in the world, and cap off your spa day with restful slumber.

Use aromatherapy for restful sleep.

Introduce aromatherapy into your bedroom by using essential oil diffusers. Scents like chamomile and jasmine can promote relaxation and better sleep. A few drops of these essential oils before bedtime can help you unwind and prepare for a restful night’s sleep.

Declutter and organize for serenity.

A clutter-free space can significantly contribute to a sense of serenity. Make sure your room of choice is tidy and organized to create a peaceful atmosphere. Use storage solutions to keep your space neat and free from distractions.

Create a relaxing bath ritual.

Turn your bathroom into a spa haven by drawing a warm bath. Add Epsom salts and a few drops of your favorite essential oils for a truly relaxing soak. Choose scents that resonate with you, light some candles, pour yourself your favorite drink and fire up the laptop to soak while binging your favorite show or movie.

Use plush towels and cozy robes.

Scratchy towels? Absolutely not! You can use this as an excuse to invest in plush, high-quality towels—Turkish cotton is luxurious and a great place to start. A cozy robe is the icing on the cake of relaxation. It’s all about the little luxuries that make you feel pampered.

Use your favorite skincare essentials for radiance.

Finally, if you haven’t already, use this spa experience to amp up your skincare routine. You can mix and match your favorite products with DIY items, like a coffee ground and brown sugar scrub. Take your time with your skincare routine, and indulge in the process.


Whether it’s luxury or ease, every area of your home should be as fabulous and unique as you.
