7 Essential Elements That Will Turn Your Bathroom Into an Oasis | Schlage

Thinking of creating your own in-home spa bathroom? Here are 7 elements that are sure to turn your space into an oasis.


There are few things more relaxing than a day at the spa! Why not bring a few of those spa-like elements into your own home so you can unwind anytime you like? Below are eight of our favorite bathroom elements that are sure to make you feel like you're in your very own oasis.

1. Freestanding Baths

Goodbye bulky, hard-to-clean garden tubs. Hello sleek, beautiful freestanding baths! Freestanding bathtubs are the perfect way to give your bathroom oasis a modern touch. You're sure to relax when your bathroom is both stylish and easier to care for.

2. Open-concept showers

For small bathroom spaces, open-concept showers provide a great way to make the space appear both larger and stylish. Finish out the look with a rain fall shower head or massaging jets.

3. Heated Floors & Towel Racks

There's no reason to torture yourself immediately after a long, relaxing bath or shower by stepping out on a cold tile floor and grabbing  a towel to wrap up in as quickly as possible. Keep the relaxation going by installing heated floors and towel racks. 

4. Mirror Defogger

Save time when you need to get ready after a long shower by installing a mirror with a built-in defogger. Gone are the days of wiping off your mirror and leaving streaks behind!

5. Light Fixtures

6. Organization

Having the right organization in place to store everything you need in your bathroom is the key to a relaxing retreat.

Consider installing bathroom vanities with ample storage solutions or open shelving to allow you to keep everyday items in an easy to reach space.
