Bathroom remodels are easily one of the most popular home improvement projects. They can offer amazing comfort and satisfaction and deliver a high rate of return on your investment. Whatever you have in mind, you’re sure to get a stunning result for your effort – but have you considered a full luxury renovation?
Everyone wants a little luxury in their home. The main question is whether it’s in the budget. Luckily, a luxurious bathroom might be more realistic than you think!
Here are some ideas for creating a luxurious, spa-like feel in your home, while still keeping it functional and stylish.
A big, beautiful walk-in shower with a glass door is a must-have for any luxury bathroom. This approach is much more fashionable than high-sided shower/tub combo units, and shower curtains can end up looking cheap and grimy. With their sleek open-concept design and chic glass installations, a walk-in shower can expand and beautify the look of any bathroom.
Specialized Shower Features
What’s more luxe than having a walk-in shower? How about a walk-in shower with custom features for ultimate relaxation!
- Steam Shower. The nice thing about a steam shower is that you don’t have to replace your existing shower stall to get this feature. If you’ve got a sealed shower enclosure that you’re happy with, all you need to do is purchase and install a steam generator. You can have a sauna in a snap.
- Dual Rainfall Showerhead. Surround yourself with hot water with a super-relaxing dual rainfall showerhead. This showerhead is positioned so that the water flows straight down rather than at an angle, as if you were caught in the rain. This allows you to immerse yourself in the stream completely. With the dual showerhead, you get twice the water and twice the relaxation.
Radiant Heat Flooring
If you’ve ever stepped out of a nice, warm shower onto a freezing cold tile floor, you’re sure to see the value of radiant heat flooring. It’s an unpleasant shock for sure, but it doesn’t have to be that way! Heated flooring isn’t just for the rich and famous. Even though it might seem indulgent, it’s quite an effective method of heating a room. Once installed, radiant heat can last for decades, and because of its even, consistent distribution, it’s great for heating almost any room. If you’re already planning to replace your bathroom floor, this investment will definitely be worth your while.
You don’t need to buy an entirely new unit to get the effects of a bidet. If you want that squeaky clean feeling without paying an arm and a leg, there are plenty of simple bidet attachments that you can install onto your existing toilet. These usually cost around $100 but are worth every penny. If, however, you’re willing to shell out a few hundred for a high-end model, there are smart toilets that include bidet features along with a heated seat and automatic drying. Technology truly is amazing.
Windows and Skylights
Show off your beautiful new bathroom by making sure that it’s well-lit. Of course, natural light will emphasize the best features of any room, but if your bathroom’s windows are small, it’s possible to resize them to let the sunshine in. If your bathroom is on the second floor, or if you live in a bungalow, you also have the option of adding a skylight. These are amazing, as they let you see the sky while affording you privacy that’s not always possible with a neighbor-facing window.
If you can’t have natural light—or even if you can—added light will make your bathroom glow. Wall sconces, chandeliers, and pot lights are great for illuminating the room. Meanwhile, lighted mirrors provide a soft, flattering alternative to harsh overhead lights that typically hang over mirrors.
The ultimate in luxury flooring for any home is porcelain. Made of highly refined clay and fired at super-high temperatures, porcelain tiles are incredibly durable and moisture resistant – plus, they come in a range of colors and patterns, making them the perfect choice for your ultra-luxe bathroom. If you’re looking for something comparable at a slightly lower cost, ceramic is an excellent alternative and is just as versatile and easy to clean. Either would look great in your luxury bathroom.
