With Valentine’s Day approaching, why not plan a romantic bath? It’s the perfect way to unwind and reconnect. Since romance means different things to different people, we’ve put together a few different bath ideas that are each romantic in their own way. Of course, we’re also serving up a few ideas on what you need for a romantic bubble bath.  Use these romantic bath ideas on Valentine’s Day, date night, or anytime you want to enjoy a bath in a romantic setting!

A Moroccan pattern fabric shower curtain, lanterns, and roses form a romantic bath setting

For some, romance conjures images of flower and lace in a rustic English inn while for others flickering candles and heady incense comes to mind. Whichever way you interpret the word “romantic,” you’ll want to create a that atmosphere in the bath.

With that in mind, let’s freshen up the space. After all, a messy, dirty bathroom is the exact opposite of the enticing atmosphere you want to create!  After tidying up, hang a new shower curtain as an easy way to start turning your regular, everyday bathroom into a romantic bathroom.

Each of our block printed shower curtains carries a design intended to transport you to a stunning destination, so instead of your run-of-the-mill bubble bath, up the ante by carrying out a romantic theme.  Here are a few of our favorite ideas:

A tropical romantic bath

Balmy breezes, sandy shores, the intoxicating aroma of coconut and tropical flowers–romance tends to bloom in the tropics. If your idea of romance includes lush flowers and sultry heat, then use that as your inspiration! Recreate that tropical feeling with one of our tropical shower curtains and turn your space into a romantic bathroom. With these prints, you’ll transform your bath into a romantic oasis. Feast on pineapple and strawberries, sip sangria, and use bath salts or candles with tropical fragrances to create the perfect at-home tropical spa experience.

A Moroccan bathroom with sexy style

So many of us find the sights and sounds of Morocco entrancing. With rich colors, tantalizing fragrances, and exquisite Moroccan patterns, a Moroccan bathroom can set the stage for romance any time. It’s particularly apt for Valentine’s Day. Bring a touch of Moroccan flair to the bath with a colorful fabric shower curtains, Moroccan curtains, and plenty of spicy touches. Light some incense and candles and put on some sultry Moroccan tunes. What a romantic bathroom, indeed!

Flowers and lace inspire this romantic bath

Regardless of style and theme, flowers remain a perennially classic symbol of love and romance. Transform your bathroom into a garden of delights by looking to lush, velvety petals as your inspiration for a romantic bathroom. A floral shower curtain creates a soft, romantic space, and sheer curtains with a delicate vintage pattern add privacy as well as charm. Soft music, candlelight, and a glass of champagne–this is exactly what you need to enhance the romance in this bath.

What you need for a romantic bubble bath

Now that you have a few ideas on how you’d like to update the bath, you’re probably ready to indulge in a romantic bubble bath of your own! You might also want to surprise your partner with a romantic bath as a show of love and affection, especially if he or she has been under loads of stress. An invitation to unwind and luxuriate might be just what they need.  Here’s what you’ll want to have around for enjoying an indulgent evening of self-care on your own or as a special treat with your beloved.

Bubble bath 

Clearly a romantic bubble bath needs bubbles! Simply pour a fragrant bubble bath under warm running water to surround yourself with foamy, luscious bubbles.

Candlelight

Most bathrooms don’t come equipped with romantic lighting. In fact, most bathrooms have terrible lighting in terms of what flatters the face. Turn off the lights and cast a soft, flattering glow (not to mention a romantic atmosphere) with candles.
