How to Turn Your Shower Into a Spa in 4 Easy Ways
Updated: Oct 25
If you've been googling "How do I turn my shower into a spa?" or "How can I make my shower a vibe?" then you clearly want to take your shower experience up a notch. Perhaps you don't have the time or money to visit an actual spa, but that doesn't mean you can't turn your shower into one!
That's right, you don't need a bathtub to create a luxurious and relaxing shower spa in your own bathroom (by the way, showers are better than baths!). It is possible to make your shower enjoyable at home and we'll show you how.
Here are 4 easy ways to turn your shower into a spa:
1. Install a Shower Head with Different Spray Settings
If you only have a standard shower head, then you're missing out on one of the key ways to turn your shower into a spa. The benefits of a shower head with different spray settings are many — it can help you relax, invigorate, de-stress, and everything in between. Plus, it'll help ensure that you shower properly while you're at it! The different spray settings will provide a massage-like experience that will soothe sore muscles and get rid of any knots.
For example, the StoneStream EcoPower shower head has 3 spray settings of rainfall, jetting, and massage. If you have been eyeing a rain shower head — the first choice of spas and 5-star hotels — but are understandably unwilling to spend a huge amount of money on it, then the rainfall spray setting is the next best thing (at a fraction of the cost!). Our shower head also has the added advantage of being adjustable and flexible, thanks to the shower hose, so you'll be able to move around comfortably while using the different spray settings.
The EcoPower shower head also comes with an Eco Stop button, so that you can turn off the water easily while lathering up, changing the song on your phone, or shaving. And the best part? You don't have to worry about wasting water, because ours is a water saving shower head that reduces water use by up to 35%. Not only will you get to save money by not going to a spa, but you'll also save money on your water and energy bills.
2. Add Aromatherapy to Your Shower Routine
Another way to turn your shower into a spa is by adding aromatherapy to your shower routine. This can be as simple as placing a few drops of essential oil onto your shower floor before turning on the water, so that the steam carries the scent throughout the bathroom. Not only will this make your shower smell amazing, but it can also have positive psychological and physical benefits. For example, the smell of lemons is known to improve concentration while the smell of lavender essential oil can promote sleep and reduce anxiety.
If you want to take your aromatherapy game up a notch, then consider getting an aromatherapy shower head. For example, the StoneStream EcoPower Matte Black shower head has the option of a Vitamin C filter, which has a refreshing citrusy aroma and the ability to restore the pH of skin and hair. Not only will you get to enjoy the energizing smell and health benefits of a Vitamin C shower, but you'll also get clean and filtered water at the same time!
3. Get Non-Slip Shower Mats
One of the not-so-enjoyable parts of going to a spa is having to shower in an unfamiliar space. You don't know where anything is, and you're constantly worried about slipping and injuring yourself. But there's no need to worry about that when you're in the comfort of your own home! A non-slip shower mat is one of the most important shower accessories that a bathroom can have and will help you feel more secure while you're getting clean and relaxing. Indeed, we'd go as far as to say that every bathroom needs to have this kind of mat, especially if kids, pets, and the elderly are frequent users.
For example, the StoneStream Non-Slip Shower Mat has over 300 suction cups that keep it firmly in place, even when wet. It's also made from mildew-resistant, BPA-free, non-toxic, phthalate-free, latex-free, and smell-free materials. Plus, it comes in a variety of colours and sizes to fit any shower! You can even put this inside your bathtub or in front of your bathroom sink. And the best part is that it looks good as well, so you can actually use it as bathroom decor to give your floors some interesting texture. Its pebble-like surface will remind you of the smooth pebbles that you see at spas!
4. Play Relaxing Music While You Shower
If you're still wondering "How can I make my shower more relaxing?" then music is the answer for you. Playing music in the shower will help you feel more calm and relaxed. If you don't want to carry your phone or speaker into the bathroom, then consider getting a waterproof Bluetooth speaker that can be attached to the shower head or wall. It's time to sing in the shower and feel good at the same time! By the way, here's a popular playlist that you can try out.
Bonus Tip: To make sure that you take shorter showers in order to save water, play songs that are the same length as your desired shower time! For example, if you're taking a navy shower — the duration of which is 2 minutes — choose a song that's around 2 minutes long.
Now that you know how to turn your shower into a spa, it's time to get started on your own at-home oasis. With these simple tips, you'll know how to destress in the shower and will be relaxing in no time in your at-home, affordable spa.
