If you need a break from your hectic life, consider transforming an area of your home into your own sanctuary. Having your own personal refuge can help you achieve balance and a sense of serenity. Everyone needs a private place where they can truly relax. And since your home is where you spend most of your time, why not make the most of it? Turning a space or room into your own peaceful retreat is easier than you think with distinctive home spa products.

Bedroom:

This is a place where you can go to find some peace and quiet, a retreat from the rest of the world. Here, you can reorganize and establish a peaceful environment. With a few changes, you can turn your bedroom into a sanctuary. Think about your favorite spa and borrow some of your favorite elements for your bedroom retreat. Spoil yourself by transforming your bedroom into a top-notch hotel suite. Lift your spirits with newly laundered sheets, beautiful expensive blankets, luxurious pillows, and fresh cut flowers. Create a sense of comfort with sidelights, dimmers or warm candlelight. For zen-like decor, take color cues from nature; neutral colors like taupe, sand, brown, gray, sea green and black. Select a soothing color scheme for your bedroom sanctuary; you can go for muted pastels, like powder blue. The bedroom is probably not the best place for a funky orange wall. Instead, inject bright color in the room with your accessories. And like any five-star hotel, don't forget to stock your sanctuary with your favorite chocolates!

Bathroom:

By choosing gentle colors, sounds and scents, you can turn your bathroom into a healing spa sanctuary for at home bathing. Decide on a color that meets your needs. Aquamarine induces tranquility, skyblue is calming and green is healing, while pure white represents cleanliness. Soaking in fragrant aromatherapy oil saturated bath while being surrounded by candles is a relaxing experience. Listening to spa music can also be nice. Try incorporating stone, wood, shells and crystals into your bathroom decor. You can also bring nature inside with plants. Treat your body to the soft, welcoming luxury of high-quality towels or a spa bathrobe.

Reading/writing room:

Often, the best remedy for a stressed out mind is something a little less taxing. If you are burned out from a busy day, curl up in a comfortable chair with a cup of tea and your favorite author. Or retreat to your special space for some writing. You might want to think about investing in a cozy chair or sofa — or try piling different types of throw pillows on the floor. Set the mood with a cozy throw, scented candles and the soothing sounds of a table fountain or music. Bring in a small table and some cherished possessions, like childhood keepsakes, photographs or other objects that are meaningful to you. Make your reading/writing room a pile-free zone. Always remember to keep your retreat space clean and uncluttered, and you will enjoy your time there
