The pandemic has forced us to adapt to a new normal in order to maintain our modern and convenient lifestyles while still ensuring that we do not contract the virus and keep ourselves safe and healthy. We do practically everything at home because of certain restrictions. Work-from-home is one of the new normal settings where we work from the comfort of our own homes.
Our jobs can be exhausting and demanding at times, and before the pandemic, we always looked forward to returning home, having a nice shower, and taking a break to unwind. Whether we like it or not, the work-from-home setup has brought that hectic environment into our homes.
This new shift inspired many people to take interest in vamping up and transforming their homes into a clutter-free and stress-free space. One important design aspect is keeping the work area separate from the bedroom and investing in a cozy and relaxing bathroom.
The bathroom is the perfect place to unwind after a long and exhausting day. Turn your bathroom into a Zen bathroom! If you are wondering how, check out the great ideas we’ve curated just for you!
5 Things Every Bathroom Needs
Transforming your bathroom is the perfect opportunity for YOU to make a new start! Taking a shower after a long day is a wonderful thing to look forward to. Take it to the next level by making your bathroom look and feel cozy.
Setting up your bathroom can be challenging if you don't know where to begin or what you'll need. Here is a list of the top 5 bathroom must-haves to get you started.
Personal Care Products
Going to the spa is a nice treat for self-care, but due to new regulations, most spas are closed for the time being or are operating at limited capacity. But don't worry - you can still pamper yourself and enjoy a spa experience at the comfort of your own home. All you need are personal care products.
- Shampoo and conditioner are, of course, at the top of the list. Who doesn't want healthy, shiny, and bouncy hair, right? Pro tip: Organic hair care products strengthen our hair and enhance growth.
- The best body wash is a must! Taking a shower feels so relaxing and a smooth and fragrant body wash can also make all the difference.
- Skincare is LIFE, so make sure to keep that in your bathroom cabinet. Choose skincare products for your skin type. You can also ask your dermatologist for recommendations.
- Treat your skin with lotion to keep it soft and hydrated all throughout the day.
- Lastly, never forget about toothpaste and mouthwash to remove bacterial buildup on teeth and to freshen breath.
We may not realize how self-care is an essential part of our lives. Taking good care of yourself impacts your mental state. One simple self-care habit is taking a nice shower and doing your hygiene routine.
Tools for Personal Care
Tools for personal care are as important as personal care products. These tools are part of your self-care and hygiene routine as well.
- The hairbrush you use matters, so pick the right hairbrush for your hair type.
- Razor - You will never know when you will need a razor, so better keep it in your cabinet.
- With the right hair styling tools, doing your hair at home can be easier. It can also save you a lot of money from going to the salon.
- A hygienic-hand tool such as a nail clipper must be kept in your cabinet as well.
- Include dental floss in your oral hygiene care as flossing your teeth is an important oral hygiene habit.
We don't pay much attention to having these tools for personal care, and we typically only buy them when they're absolutely necessary. It's a good habit to keep these tools in your cabinet not just for yourself, but also so you can provide them to visitors who might need them.
Bath Linen, Robes and Slippers
Wrapping yourself in a soft and cozy bath towel after a great shower is so satisfying!
Because there are so many bath towels to choose from on the market, choosing a bath towel can be difficult, especially if you don't know exactly what you're looking for. It's worth investing in a bath towel that can keep up with product claims like softness and absorbency after years of use.
Bamboo bath towels are the new trendsetter when it comes to quality bath towels. They are well worth the money you pay as they maintain their softness, durability, and absorbency even after using them for years. What sets it apart from other bath towels is that it is organic, eco-friendly, and contains anti-microbial properties.
Kinza Towels are made from 100% bamboo, responsibly made, and biodegradable. It also comes in two variants: black and white, both with gold trimmings. Kinza towels are perfect bathroom essentials.
After taking a shower, we all get that chilly moment followed by the coziest experience of wearing a bathrobe. Everyone should own it as it gives luxurious coziness whenever you need it and feels a little EXTRA.
Wearing slippers in the bathroom can prevent the spread of dirty particles in other areas of your house. Having toilet slippers maintains the cleanliness of the bathroom. To avoid your visitors entering the bathroom with their normal slippers or shoes, it’s a good idea to have an extra pair of toilet slippers on hand.
Storage and Waste Management
We can all agree that a clean bathroom is comforting. Proper storage and waste management can help you maintain a clean and organized bathroom.
Store all of your bathroom essentials like personal care products, bath towels and other essentials in the cabinet or in a basket or storage box so that they are not scattered all over the place. As much as possible, put them in one place only. Consider choosing a storage option that can also be used as a piece of decor.
It's important to have a trash can in our bathroom where we can dispose of items like tissues, feminine products, wipes, cotton pads, and other toilet waste. Choose a trash can that complements the design of your bathroom.
Imagine that you are spending your night with a nice and relaxing bath. Isn't it great?
Self-care at home has become a thing even before the pandemic started. It’s a hallmark of the new millennium.
One of the best ways to create a bathroom that exudes self-care and relaxation is to set the ambiance and mood.
It's important to create a space that's clutter-free, clean, and calming. That means that before you indulge in essentials such as flowers and candles, organize the area by arranging the bath products and removing unnecessary things that have been strewn around the house before you begin decorating.
Candles are critical in creating the right ambiance for your bathroom. The candle's mellow glow set the mood for the evening. Choose a candle with a mild fragrance and flowery scents like rose and lavender.
The smell of fresh flowers can be so relaxing. Place a vase with fresh flowers on the countertop along with the personal care essentials and bath towel.
Lastly, spraying air fresheners and room and linen sprays not only removes the stink but also keeps the bathroom fresh and clean. You can also use humidifiers to prevent dryness that can cause skin irritation. But make sure to only use mild fragrances with natural and calming scents.
If you are looking to enjoy a relaxing bath experience after a long day of work, Kinza towels will let you indulge yourself with the softest, coziest experience.
