After a chaotic workday, there is nothing more we look forward to than hitting the spa for a soothing massage, rejuvenating facial and a cuppa hot tea. Yet, not all of us have the luxury of time to visit the spa. So here it is – 10 fuss-free bathroom tweaks that will transform your everyday bathroom into a spa sanctuary within minutes:

1. Candles

Not only do candles provide the essence of tranquility with its scent, it also softens the light for a peaceful ambience. For an added touch of luxury, display candles in candle holders along shelving. What a brilliant idea to store knick knacks, toys and more without having the hassle of it lying around or stacked up in a corner.
