Creating a Spa Atmosphere at Home Utilizing Natural Stone

According to Good Housekeeping magazine, one of the biggest home improvement trends of 2022 is designing bathrooms that feel more like at-home spas. With the addition of clean, simple accents and natural elements, you can build a private retreat to get ready for and recover from long, busy days.

There are a multitude of ways to create the spa atmosphere within your own bathroom space and a variety of materials to help. Popular ways of incorporating natural stone like countertops and backsplashes are now joined by custom shower walls, accent pieces and flooring options as different ways to impact a space.

This interior design work-in-progress features natural flagstone material for the floor. Typically featured in landscape design projects like walkways, patios, and pool coping, natural flagstone creates a unique feel inside, too, and is well-suited for an at-home spa. The use of flagstone for indoor flooring helps create a connection between the inside and outside of the home.

Regardless of the size of the space, adding a touch of natural material to a new or existing feature can create a soothing, spa-like atmosphere. Home improvement projects spanning inside and outside of the home continue to be a priority for homeowners spending more time in their own space.
