It’s time to mark your calendars and get that creativity flowing because we are officially entering “Parent Appreciation Season.” So, what exactly is this and what does it mean for you?
Essentially, both Mother’s and Father’s Day are creeping up on us faster than ever. First up this week is Mother’s Day. So, jump on it, there’s no time like the present to make Mom feel special!
At Santa Anna Apartment Homes, we know that shopping for mom can be quite the challenge. So many gifts feel like a cliche…. flowers, jewelry, perfume, gift certificates…. it’s all been done! Plus, it’s hard to pick out just the right thing without multiple trips to the mall. If you find yourself feeling frustrated and hopeless, we’d like you to know that you are not alone. While materialistic gifts may put a smile on your mom’s face, there’s no denying the impact a more personal present has. If you’re not a DIY person, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. This Mother’s Day get a little inspiration from one of mom’s favorite pastimes (hint: it’s going to the spa) and transform her apartment restroom into a spa oasis!
If such a task seems impossible, we beg to differ. When it comes to the potential of apartments, the possibilities are endless if you allow them to take flight.
Here are 5 ways you can transform your mom’s apartment restroom into a relaxing spa-like destination:Enclose it!
The main purpose of a spa-like experience is to break away from reality and have a few moments to yourself to take a breather. Honestly, this might be the best gift you can give mom this Mother’s Day.
To make her feel like she’s in a five-star spa, it’s important to create somewhat of a ‘barrier’ to make her feel like she’s in a faraway place. Shut the door, literally. Then, craft a second barrier by placing a decorative curtain over the door or putting some tropical plants in the bathroom doorway. Really the idea is to simply separate her from the outside world. Get creative so mom can finally relax!Presentation is everything
You’ve probably heard this before, but if you really want to transform mom’s apartment bathroom into a lust-worthy spa, you’ve got to think hard here. Rather than just purchasing relaxing spa treatments like bath salts and face masks, go big and strategically place them so she’ll feel as though she has an entire spa staff waiting to take care of her. Think chic containers and bath bombs galore!Add that little something something

This one may seem like a no-brainer, but in order for mom to feel like she’s on a sweet escape, it’s important for you to set the mood. Clean and organize the bathroom so she’s not stressed by clutter. Clear the area of any distractions such as loud noises (this includes children/grandchildren—call a babysitter!). Make sure and put on some soothing spa tunes and ditch the fluorescent lighting for some sweet smelling candles. It’s the little things that count.Softness is key
When you think about spas, you’re likely to think of fuzzy bathrobes, soft towels and comfy slippers fondly. Just because your mother’s spa experience is taking place in her apartment doesn't mean she has to sacrifice these perks! Make sure that a soft robe, slippers and dreamy towels are in full abundance! These items are the perfect finishing touch for a luxe spa getaway.
