A spa is a place for recharging your mind, body, and energy. Pampering at a professional spa can be quite the luxury—and the prices can certainly reflect that. However, you can create a spa experience at home. There are many ways to practice self-care and connect with your highest self at home.
Our skin is our body’s largest organ. Elevate your bathing ritual and turn it into an experience. Bathing is more than a daily chaotic task of jumping in and out of the shower as you rush to get out the door; it can be an extremely relaxing experience if you give it time! Fill your bathtub with warm water and add relaxing Epsom salt. Pour yourself a glass of coconut water (fresh, if possible) and place it beside you in your tub so you can sip it while bathing. Use an organic plant-based body scrub with essential oils and lightly apply all over your body. Light candles, play some soothing music, and immerse yourself in the moment. Don’t forget to deeply moisturize your skin right after you step out of the bathtub!
Take 20 to 30 minutes out of your busy day to give yourself a head massage. Apply olive or coconut oil to your scalp, warm it a bit, and gently massage. Drop some essential oils into your diffuser. Some of the most relaxing essential aromatic oils are bergamot, lavender, rose, jasmine, and sandalwood. If you don’t have a diffuser, you can apply them to your bed sheets or curtains.
You can also create the aesthetics of the spa in your home. Instead of visiting a luxury resort, you can build your own spa at home by renovating your bathroom. Update the color palette, as color can have a huge influence on our mood. Spa salons usually follow a pastel color scheme to create a feeling of serenity. They tend to follow a monochromatic color scheme so that everything flows seamlessly together. Minimalistic design has become the most popular design aesthetic for millennial homeowners, as simplicity elegantly separates their minds from the hustle of their daily lives.
A new bathroom can change your home and your life. The best bathroom remodels are the work of professional designers and contractors. An experienced team can do wonders for your home. They can suggest the styles of appliances and fixtures that will best suit your desires and floor plan. One of such customizations is the choice of shower accessories that offer different modes for the flow of water like a spa is another option. In addition, they can offer multifunctional lighting, to adjust the brightness and color of your bathroom. You can also upgrade your water and lightning appliances to smart and eco-friendly technology to conserve utility costs and help preserve the environment.
The spa is an experience that comes from the ambiance and tranquility of the surroundings! Build yours at home today with Inspired Remodels.

Spring is quickly passing by and summer is just around the corner, which means for many of us it’s high time to start planning out the renovations we’ve been putting off for months now. Hours of browsing Pinterest later, we need to start asking ourselves how we want our bathrooms to look, how to open up the kitchen to make it less confining, and, most importantly, what contractors are we going to hire to get the job done right?
The contracting question is one for the ages, as the businesses that populate the industry have a well-deserved reputation for cutting corners and providing shoddy workmanship in order to increase their margins. Even contractors that come recommended to us from friends and family have a tendency to disappoint, as I found out after one such company revamped my kitchen just to find that they had accidentally removed a load-bearing wall. Whoops!
So, what are we to do about finding the diamonds in the rough? Well, Yelp is one option – people spending a significant chunk of change on a shoddy remodel are unlikely to keep their silence for long.
So, a brief search for home remodeling contractors in Orange County will bring up some of the best contractors in the business, which brings us to the spotlighted company for today’s post, Inspired Remodels, Inc. Not only do they have one of the best ratings on Yelp for a contracting firm I’ve seen, they have some truly stellar testimonials that go on at length about the quality of their craftsmanship. Lisa G., for example, talks about their work on her bathroom here:
“After spending time looking for a contractor to renovate our master bathroom, laundry and power bath, we settled on Inspired Remodels and I’m so glad we did! From start to finish every single person that worked in our home was professional, considerate and communicated with us throughout the process. I am rather “particular” about things being just right and they went above and beyond to ensure our satisfaction. Joe and Collin were very patient with me during the selection process and Jason was responsive and made me feel at ease with any questions I had along the way. The tradesmen were all outstanding but I need to give a special shoutout to Haime and Rudy, Mark and Ulysses, for their attention to detail and the long hours they put into making our home beautiful. Thank you, thank you! I highly recommend using IR if you have high expectations – they will be met!”
“Our experience with Inspired Remodels was the best I’ve ever experienced with contractors. Jason and Joe Mueller we’re responsive throughout the project. We are very meticulous and hired IR to redo a remodel that went south. Our remodel included removing new wood like tile flooring due to improper installation from a previous fraudulent contractor. IR flawlessly removed all flooring and kept the job spotless during the 7-week remodel. Our house was virtually left better then IR found it. IR installed the new wood tile above and beyond industry standards, removed and replaced all new baseboards and doors. Additionally, IR painted and perfected areas that were previously left imperfect by the previous contractor. I will definitely use IR again for our future remodel needs. Jason even brought us a house warming gift at the end. We moved back into our house on schedule and couldn’t be happier. Thank you IR family! We look forward to using your professional and family oriented services again in the future. Thank you” So, there we have it. Excellent quality work in a reasonable time frame, which is much more than you can say about a lot of firms in the biz. Happy hunting, folks, and don’t forget: never use stainless steel for your counter tops. Just don’t.
We love watching businesses take off and today we want to highlight a business we have been watching for a while, Inspired Remodels. They are a design-and-build licensed California general contractor and they are truly taking over Orange County by consistently producing top quality work.

(Alright, we know that is subjective, but seriously, you should check these guys out.)
Okay, let’s dive into the reviews:
“Thank you Joe, Jason and Colin! You and your team are all top notch. We just finished remodeling our entire house with them which originally started with the intention of just doing our master bath. We had to continue with IR because they did such a great job in all aspects of the entire project. They were reliable and most importantly to us was their high integrity.”
“We live in an older home in Orange. This was our first experience of doing a complete remodel of any room in our house. Joe, Jason & Colin were here to make suggestions about our kitchen. Wonderful ideas that turned into a totally transformed room. We love it! We can’t say enough good things about all the workers who were here They were very professional even down to the smallest detail. We highly recommend Inspired Remodels!”
“Our remodel is complete and yes it’s inspired, thanks to Jason, Joe, and their incredible contractors. The design, workmanship, and professionalism at this design company are exceptional. They kept to the timeline. The finished remodel is beautiful and masterfully done.”
Clearly, these guys are doing something right.
Now, let’s take a look at some of their work. As you will see, the work done is clean and beautiful.
I love these kitchens. New and modern and they look fantastic. Joe and their team actually help come up with the designs and then fulfill the work. So you don’t need to worry about too many cooks in the kitchen with directions getting lost. With Inspired Remodels, you get a one-stop home remodeling shop.
We were even able to get our hands on a video of some of the work they have done. We are really excited to show you it as it allows you to really get a feel for the type of work they are doing.
