Ok, let’s start at the beginning…
When we first designed Willow Spa, we planned to have more clinical types of treatments such as Chiropractic and Acupuncture, which didn’t require changing into spa lounge wear. Our changing area was meant to be a place to hold your belongings and quickly change into some comfortable clothes so clients could get some bodywork done without worrying about ruining their work clothes. Over the years, our spa took on a life of its own with people coming in mainly to relax and find a little escape from the busy-ness of everyday life. Our treatments continued to be wellness based with our focus on natural, organic products and care that is also personalized and pampering. However, rather than most clients going straight into a treatment room, 90% of our clients start off by visiting the changing area first and we realized that our changing area needed a face-lift.
There is very limited space and the layout isn’t the easiest to work with, but we are looking at these limitations as a fun challenge.
This area has always been a little awkward because the area between the toilet and the sink is too small to have an actual door.
We are inspired by these photos. We’ve always liked the combination of natural materials of concrete and wood. Our space is dark without a lot of light, but we’d like to brighten it up and make it a little more modern.

In addition to the space limitations, we also have a small budget to work with. However, we are hoping to find some creative ways to make improvements. We are very excited to share the “after” photos with you. Stay tuned…
