You don’t need a lot of space or a huge budget to spoil yourself at home in your apartment. Here are some tips to treat your five senses without even stepping outside!
Treat your eyes to a daily dose of inspirational artwork. Sure, that kitschy paint-by-number pony you got at the thrift store might be hip, but if you really want to spoil yourself, splurge on art that speaks to your soul. Scope out a local gallery or two, and talk to the gallery owners about the style of artwork you like most. Then figure out your budget and invest in at least one piece you really adore to hang in your apartment space. Your day will be made every time you feast your eyes on it in your apartment.
Curious how to spoil yourself on a budget? Try treating your ears to some relaxing sounds that will help you sleep. Good rest at night is one of the healthiest ways to spoil yourself, and a soothing sound machine just might help do the trick. You can get an afforable model for as little as $12 and enjoy the same relaxing white noise, waterfalls or nature sounds as the well-to-do. A relaxing experience at a great price will be music to your ears.
If you can sniff out luxury from miles away, then you’ll love enjoying fine scents at home in your everyday life. Here’s a trick for spoiling yourself at home: make average cleaning activities exceptional with upscale cleansers. Simply replace your dingy dishwashing soap and canned cleaning products with decadent brands like Caldrea, Mrs. Meyer’s or Williams-Sonoma. They cost a little more, but your nose will thank you every day. (And you won’t need an aromatherapy massage to feel great!)
Do you get tongue-tied trying to choose luxury products for your palate? Sit back, relax and enjoy at-home pampering in your apartment by joining a wine-of-the-month club like Vinesse. Having wine delivered to your door is the ultimate luxury, and you’ll get the chance to experiment with different flavors every 30 days. If wine isn’t your passion, try a monthly cheese, fruit, salami or chocolate club. Heck, there’s a club for just about anything your taste desires.
After spoiling yourself with a face full of senses, don’t neglect your sense of touch. To truly tantalize your fancy feelers, invest in the ultimate in-home indulgence, luxury hotel sheets. Admit it: every time you stay at an upscale hotel, you never want to get out of bed. So why not have that experience in your own apartment bedroom? These days, most high-end hotel chains sell their own brands of sheets. With the click of a button, you could be resting on the same bedding as someone at the Ritz-Carlton.
You deserve a touch of class. The truly pampered wouldn’t think of setting foot out of their own homes to spoil themselves, so try these fun tips for living it up in your own living space to see what they’re going on about!
