Luxurious touches, whether they are part of the owner’s suite or an entryway powder room, have transformed today’s bathrooms beyond the functional and into the exceptional. Yes, your bathrooms are still the place to primp, pamper and, of course, “powder your nose” in your home. But accent lighting, free-standing bathtubs, visually appealing stall showers and beautiful tile work have transformed modern bathrooms into sanctuaries and spas.
Besides the basics, you can add bold colors or sleek lines, warm lighting or architectural elements. These options can turn the basic bathroom in your new home into a charming, calming oasis you cannot wait to come home to.
Take a look at some features to focus on when creating the luxury bathroom of your dreams.
The not-so-basic basics.
The plumbing, lighting and fixtures you choose are important elements that can set the tone. For example, chrome faucets add an elegant European design feel. You can contrast that with the classic features of a maple shaker style vanity with contemporary rectangular integral sinks. Or, feature dark or matte hardware for an upscale, modern vibe. Other trendy components include mirrors and medicine cabinets that are backlit to offer ambient lighting without glare. And many are finding that bathrooms, even simple powder rooms, can elevate the whole home when they feature an accent wall or built-in molding.
These elements are subtle yet critical towards creating a luxury bathroom full of convenience and indulgence.
The ultimate shower experience.
A frameless glass shower door lends a modern look to any bathroom. It creates a spacious feel that visually expands the room. You may want to include multiple shower heads and a bench along the shower wall to foster a spa-like experience.
Opting for a stand-alone shower without an entryway ledge or significant lip to step over also enhances functionality, introducing a walk-in element that makes it easy for all ages to use. Plus, the glass door offers a perfect chance to showcase sleek tile selections on the shower walls and floor. Lately, oversized tile and warm tones have been taking the sterile edge off of bathroom decor. This stylistic element can define your bathroom and the overall atmosphere, creating an ultimate refuge of contemporary luxury.
The beauty of a bathtub oasis.
Ending the day in a hot bathtub has been a relaxing panacea for many during the pandemic. Yes, the traditional white rectangular tub offers rest and relaxation, but many of those looking at new homes now want free-standing soaking tubs. These range from simple sculptural designs to old-fashioned clawfoot models. They offer a pleasurable bathing experience and serve as a beautiful eye-catching addition to your bathroom. Incorporating warm lighting above the tub and other simple touches enhances the ambiance.
Add attractive subway wall tiles, colorful decorations and elegant white accents to bring your dream bathroom to life. Such a getaway offers you a perfect spa-like experience without ever having to step foot outside.
