At Oxford at Sonterra Apartments in San Antonio, Texas, nothing is more important to us than your health, happiness, and overall well-being. We offer these informative blogs as a way to enhance your lifestyle beyond the scope of the physical features and services that we provide in our beautiful and welcoming community.
One of the physical features we do offer in our apartments, however, are big, beautiful bathtubs, and many of our residents love to take advantage of it. This amenity could even provide the ultimate spa experience if you play your cards right. That’s correct – you don’t have to spend a boatload of bucks to relax, unwind, and recharge your batteries. With the tips below, you can create your very own spa-like experience from the comfort of your apartment home bathroom. If you need no further convincing, take a peek at the suggestions below to get started.
First, clean your tub.
Before you hop in the tub, there are a few things you should do beforehand that will optimize your experience. For starters, give your bathtub a deep cleaning. I know, you want to get to the relaxing part, but you won’t feel so relaxed if your bathtub isn’t in tip-top condition. We suggest cleaning your tub with grapefruit and salt to freshen it up and avoid any harsh chemicals.
Don’t forget to keep a bathtub caddy nearby.
Once you’re in your bath, the last thing you’ll want to do is immediately hop out to grab the book you’re reading or change the music with your phone nowhere to be found. Not to mention, you need all of your bath-time essentials. You can set everything up on the tray before you even start running the water, so by the time you climb in, you can descend into relaxation mode.
Next, set the mood with lighting and music.
When you walk into a spa, the first thing you’ll notice is its relaxing atmosphere. You can create a similar atmosphere at home easily just by changing the lighting and adding some soothing sounds to your bathroom. Be sure make your bathroom a little dimmer, so you can really relax. As for music, you can play ambient sounds, or light, instrumental music you enjoy to really set the mood.
Finally, soak in some soothing bath salts.
What spa-like bath experience would be complete without some good stuff to soak in, like bath salts? Bath salts are crystals that dissolve in your bathwater to soften and perfume the water, as well as ease your sore muscles and relieve tension. There are tons of bath products you can buy out there, but you can easily create your own stuff for much less.
