Hosting a Valentine's date at your home is just the perfect reason to give your den a makeover. Shades of pink and heart-shaped motifs are not all you need to give that glorious makeover to your home. You can play with lighting, aromatics, and layer with fabrics to craft a perfect setting to create memories with your loved one.   

If you take your bathroom for granted, then think again! Although your bathroom may not be the first thing that would grab the attention of your date, it would certainly be visited at some point of time in the evening. This is where you can weave magic by investing in a bathroom valentine makeover.

If your bathroom mainly has neutral colours, then you can change the feel and look by adding floral curtains and new rugs. You can include a new shower curtain or use paintings depending on the size of your bathroom. For instance, you can consider the Romantic Squin Décor curtain with Pink Glitter available on Amazon which features an exclusive design.   

Dim the lights

When romance is on your agenda, then you should do away with harsh overhead lights. Lighting can make or break your mood. A striking fixture such as a series of pendant lights or a chandelier can certainly make a bold statement, but you need to opt for dimmers if you want a romantic look.

If there is no ledge around your bathtub on which you can set the candles, then you can add a few stone pedestals for a more dramatic look.    

A sensual shower

You can add a little luxury to your shower to set the mood for a lot of love. For instance, programmable showers let you determine the type of spray, pressure and water temperature digitally.

If you want things to turn a little steamy, then you can invest in a steam shower. Remember, that you will need enough space in your bathroom for installing a steam generator. You can also opt for a prefab unit that can be installed without any expert help.
