Immersive Water Features 

The centrepiece of any home spa, water features beautifully accentuate the space while providing an immersive method of rest and retreat. 

Spacious wading pools are an idyllic amenity for recharging your body, their sparkling waters inviting you to feel refreshed and inspired after a day of tranquil relaxation. In Toronto’s cooler climate, the warm and soothing waters of an indoor jacuzzi make them a similarly prominent inclusion among at-home spas. 

Smaller accessory features such as freestanding baths or rainforest showers allow for ultimate individual relaxation. In compact spaces, these amenities can also serve as the spa’s primary water features if needed. 

Moisture Management 

Along the floors and walls, contemporary tiling or sleek wood panelling reinforces your spa’s luxurious ambience while providing essential protection from long-term moisture accumulation.

A necessary strategy for spas with indoor water features, a specialized contractor can offer moisture management solutions that do not detract from the overall ambience or opulence of the space. 

Essential Furnishings 

In addition to water features, an array of essential spa furnishings are needed for a comprehensive wellness experience. Décor and furnishings should be selected meticulously, with an emphasis on both design and functionality.  

Simple lounge chairs provide the ideal infrastructure for easy relaxation. To avoid disruption to your spa’s refined ambience, select chairs that match the feel of the space. Designated lounge chairs or furnishings that sit near water features should be appropriately suited for exposure to moisture. 

An exemplary inclusion in any home spa, massage tables provide blissful at-home relaxation. Only one or two tables are required to enjoy treatments and therapies from the private comfort of home. For table placement, select a quiet, distraction-free area of your spa.  

In addition to refining your home, strategic renovation projects can also positively impact your property value. Learn more about other value-elevating property features with these blog posts.

Tones & Lighting 

In addition to amenities and furnishings, an immersive and idyllic home spa requires a substantial emphasis on ambience and accenting features. When it comes to shaping a cohesive and serene atmosphere, subtle moves can have a large impact. 

Beginning with the colours of the space, a neutral palette is most effective in setting the mind at ease and limiting distractions. Your spa’s flooring, furnishings, and paint should reflect a carefully selected palette of neutral tones which foster an environment of refined relaxation. 

Dim, ambient lighting is best for establishing a peaceful atmosphere. Arrange fixtures around the perimeter of the space, limiting the light that is directly overhead. If your home’s outdoor space is less secluded, limit exterior windows. For properties with vast and private outdoor spaces, strategically placed windows could provide an organic elevation of your spa’s natural ambience.
