A bathroom upgrade is usually an expensive affair but much needed if it has gone years without a remodel. Everybody loves a luxurious bathroom, considering that’s where we go to rejuvenate and freshen up. A dirty, leaky bathroom can make the experience from bad to worse, but a well-maintained upgrade would hurt nobody, would it? Adding those finishing touches, the germ-free and anti-skid tiles for flooring as well as the walls are some things you ought to keep in mind during this time. Here are some ideas to enable you to create the luxury bathroom you always loved in hotels and wanted one for yourself!
Increase the Area of the Bathroom Luxury does not necessarily require a large space. You can create a luxury bathroom out of even small spaces, provided you know what to do with them. Some subtle design touches can make smaller bathrooms look more spacious, through the use of lighter-colored, glossy tiles or subtle lighting options. However, you can’t debate the fact that a little bit more room for foot traffic is always a bonus. If you have the space, you can create a separate shower area using a glass partition or a shower curtain. In that way, you can demarcate the dry and wet areas for a chic, modern look.
Add More Storage Solutions It’s not just the kitchens that need ample storage, a bathroom also needs one. Whether it is for the toiletries, towels and cleaning supplies, extra space for storage is always welcome. You can even go for the ‘his’ and ‘her’ zones where you can dedicate different sinks and storage for you and your partner, if the space allows, of course. This will create a clean, minimalistic look with all things stored out of sight, which can help you bring the focus to a statement design feature.
Include Ample Light A dark bathroom is as dangerous as any other high-risk space, especially as there is often some wetness due to water and soapsuds. The visibility needs to be really clear to avoid any mishaps or slips and falls. A big window that allows lots of natural light would be ideal, but if this is not an option, then adding lights would be the next best thing to do. A large mirror can enhance this effect. With ample lighting, the space also tends to look bigger than it actually is! And with the recent trend for make-up videos and selfies, good lighting in the bathroom has become a must-have!
Vintage Bathroom Tiles If you love Victorian-inspired English bathrooms, you can opt for bathroom tiles with a vintage design that resembles those. A classic bathroom remodel would definitely include this upgrade that comes with either subway tiles or mosaic tiles, as well as wooden-style laminate countertops to offset the extreme whites in the area.
Incorporate High-End Plumbing Fixtures Luxury bathrooms are all about the experience, accessibility and modernization. So, adding premium quality plumbing fixtures is a must! You can get creative even with your plumbing and water fixtures. You can opt for a programmable shower head, a soaker tub or a jacuzzi if the space allows you. You can even go in for a seat-warming toilet that’s so popular in Japan and of course, faucets that bubble up like waterfalls.
Focus On Details and Finishes
Like they say, it is all in the details! Even the best fixtures, tiles or flooring cannot complete the luxurious look if you pass on the finer details. The subtle touches are what lend a delicate effect. Things like the metal you would want for your faucets or showerheads, single or double sinks and their materials are some ways you can focus on the finer details and get the best of what you have.
Centerpiece Tubs If your bathroom has enough space to accommodate a bathtub, you should go for it! One of the best and most luxurious ways to relax after a long day at work is to soak in a warm bubble bath drawn in a bathtub. You can make the tub the focal point of your luxury bathroom and make sure that’s your talking point!
Remodeling a bathroom can upgrade your space and give you the experience of a luxury bathroom that you get in five-star hotels. Bring the hotel-like experience to your home by incorporating these minor additions and changes that can instantly transform the space in no time!
