Wouldn’t it be great to enjoy a spa-like bathroom with features that revitalize you… everyday? Luckily, you don’t have to stay at a posh hotel to experience a luxury bathroom. Today’s bathroom renovations embrace colors, textures, and patterns into thoughtful details.
Read on to discover the top must-have features for your upcoming bathroom remodel, and prepare to be pampered like never before.
Transform Your Bathroom into a Luxurious Hideaway
1. Begin with a freestanding tub
A quality bathtub can enhance your bathroom’s design and revitalize you daily. Look for durable materials, an elegant shape, and custom options. Add a small table nearby for candles and hot tea.
2. Add features that rejuvenate
The little things invigorate—like a rainfall shower head, dual showerheads, steam showers, a body sprayer, and side sprays. Enjoy plush towels, glass-walled showers, and gorgeous tiles like ceramic or porcelain—for your shower’s flooring and walls.
3. Bring tranquility with greenery
Enhance your bathroom’s aesthetics, create a calming environment, and purify the air by adding refreshing greenery to your bathroom.
4. Indulge in heated flooring
Pamper yourself by taking the chill off tiles on cold mornings with radiant heat that delivers luxurious comfort and energy savings. Heated bathroom flooring is a key selling point that adds value to your home when it comes time to sell.
5. Make a statement with a stunning backsplash
Your vanity’s backsplash is the perfect place to add visual interest to your remodeled bathroom. It’s super visible, so adding patterned tile from the vanity to the ceiling takes your bathroom design to the next level. Add a uniquely shaped mirror (circular, oval, or rectangular with rounded edges) over each sink for even more style.
6. Insert a convenient linen cabinet
There’s nothing like grabbing a clean, fluffy towel from a nearby cabinet when you get out of the bath or shower. Include a linen cabinet as an extension of the vanity in your bathroom renovation, and enjoy its convenience daily.
7. Add layers of light for the perfect ambiance
Bathroom windows allow natural light to teem into your bathroom, refreshing the atmosphere. Dimmable lighting gives you options as you unwind each day, and a small chandelier adds to the “wow” factor when placed over the soaking tub. One of the most popular materials for light fixtures is a combination of metal and glass.
8. Fit in a makeup vanity
If space permits, a vanity where you can sit and put on your makeup with adequate lighting is appealing. Include a drawer or two for cosmetics, a well-lit makeup mirror, and a chair that’s the right height for you.
9. Indulge in a heated towel rack
Wrapping yourself in a pre-heated towel is a great way to start and end the day. Once you enjoy this luxury feature, you won’t want to go without it!
10. Install a smart toilet
The bells and whistles in today’s smart toilets include night lights, heated seats, deodorizers, and more. They require less water per flush and help reduce the need for toilet paper and harsh cleaning chemicals. With an automatic open and close lid, an automatic flush mechanism, and an adjustable seat, a smart toilet is the perfect luxury item for your bathroom remodel.
11. Enjoy a touchless sink faucet
Energy-efficient touchless sink faucets are the perfect finishing touch for your bathroom remodel. Avoid the mess and spread of germs, with no cross-contamination between users. Wave your hand to operate the faucet, and save water with the shutoff feature. The shutoff feature ensures you won’t be concerned about the water running when the faucet isn’t in use.
12. Add a recessed medicine cabinet
Get more storage space without sacrificing a sleek look with a recessed medicine cabinet above your bathroom vanity. It will prevent you from hitting your head on the edge of the cabinet because it won’t be jutting out from the wall.
13. Choose countertops with care
When selecting your bathroom countertop material, balance beauty with function, and you’ll get the best long-term results. Marble countertops are gorgeous, but they are porous and need to be resealed regularly. Natural stone counters are durable and attractive. Laminate counters are affordable, yet not the best-looking option. Tile counters look amazing, but keep an eye on their grout as it will need to be cleaned regularly to keep it looking its best.
14. Prioritize improving ventilation
Mold is your home’s enemy, and bathrooms are notorious for it, so as you remodel, increase your bathroom’s ventilation. A vent fan is a wise addition to your bathroom remodel as it will help keep unhealthy mold and mildew out of your space. It draws out moisture and odors, improving the air quality in your bathroom.
Include a small bathroom window in your remodeling plans, as it quickly moves humid air out of your space and fresh outdoor air inside.
15. Choose accessories with care
As you add the finishing touches to your remodeled bathroom, plan ahead and you will achieve a cohesive style. Less is more when it comes to accessories. Your towel rack should coordinate with your faucets and drawer handles, and your soap dispenser should complement your sink.
