The bathroom is the one room that everyone visits at least a few times every day. If you live with other people, it may be the only place you can find a few minutes of guaranteed privacy. It’s no wonder why so many homeowners decide to upgrade their bathroom during a remodel.
The bathroom should be a soothing sanctuary from the outside world. With a few smart remodeling choices, you can create a gorgeous luxury bathroom.
Use high-end natural materials throughout your bathroom
To create a beautiful first impression, ask your bathroom remodel contractors about adding a luxurious material to the walls. Western Ledge Stak stone could be a stunning addition to an otherwise blank section of wall.
The little details matter, too. Fluffy towels and beautifully shined hardware are key components of spa-style bathroom. Use natural décor such as plants, flowers, or glass bowls filled with stones together with a rainfall showerhead. A woven basket for storing makeup and other necessities could be the perfect final touch.
Pay special attention to the flooring when you remodel your bathroom
One of the most important places to use high-quality materials is flooring. Few changes will make more difference than switching out tired linoleum tiles for natural stone. Marble, slate, granite, and even limestone will instantly upgrade the feel of your bathroom.
If you want to create a truly distinctive bathroom, consider laying a winding path of river rocks on the floor or shower. Take inspiration from nature and add a few plants that tolerate low light and high humidity. Your bathroom will feel incredibly luxurious.
For an extra special touch, consider floor heating to create additional comfort. Think how your feet will feel when you step out of that freestanding bathtub!
Consider a freestanding bathtub
A freestanding bathtub screams luxury, especially if it has stylish tub faucets. Luxurious tubs are typically oval or rounded in a decorative, artistic design. Think of the freestanding tub as a sculpture that happens to have a practical purpose as well.
If you choose a freestanding tub, you will need to consider how you will hide the pipework. Many luxury bathroom designers choose to use an eye-catching plinth. You could also choose a stylish design for your tub faucets.
Don’t forget about lighting
Lighting can dramatically change the feel of any part of your home, and this includes the bathroom. There are many different ways to create a more luxurious-feeling bathroom with light.
Sconce lighting can bring attention to beautiful details. Down lights and floor lights can eliminate shadowy corners. Solar tubes can transport natural light to any room in your home, even if there isn’t an exterior window. You can also use candles to create a romantic or hygge vibe.
Regardless of which style you choose, you want your bathroom to feel bright and well-lit. High-quality lighting not only keeps you safe, it also helps you feel at ease.
Make your bathroom feel spacious
A sense of space is vital to a luxurious bathroom. High-end bathrooms give the appearance of more than enough space for every fixture, with a generous amount of space between elements like the vanity and the shower area. You will never feel cramped in a luxury bathroom.
Many home remodelers choose to extend their bathroom or rearrange the layout to create more floor space. They may also choose elements that gives the illusion of additional space, such as a minimalist sink or a glass shower area.
You can also make your space feel larger with mirrors. A generous large mirror or several smaller mirrors arranged in an artful pattern can double the size of the room in your mind. The idea is to break up the feeling of being closed into four walls.
