With careful planning and close attention to detail, any bathroom can become luxurious. Regardless of your tastes and preferences, luxury bathrooms are all about creating a space where you can truly relax at the end of a long and stressful day. Consider these elements when designing your luxurious bathroom at home.
While large space is not necessary to create the perfect bathroom, the extra square footage helps create a spa-like feel. The sense of space will make it feel like your own private retreat and provide space for all the other luxurious items you might want to include. High ceilings contribute to the feeling of added space and provide room for larger windows. A design consultant help create the perfect floor plan for your luxurious retreat.
Luxurious materials make a luxurious bathroom. Stone and solid wood are classic favorites and add a sophisticated look and feel to the bathroom. Marble is another excellent choice, adding a truly luxurious feel to any space. For a seamless finish, consider using the same material for both the floors and walls.
Storage is a necessary element that adds sophistication. Custom or fitted storage units combines functionality and style in any luxury bathroom. Choose finishes such as wood or white gloss to create a timeless appeal that won’t go out of style.
When selecting fittings for your luxury bathroom, know that performance is key. Consider separate tub and shower units, layering a freestanding bathtub to create visual interest and depth within the space. Freestanding baths can also act as statement pieces, while a chandelier can help ground the bath within the room.
For the shower, consider a large showerhead to create a soothing rainfall effect to awaken your senses. An additional handheld set also makes for easier rinsing and cleaning. You may even want to add body jets, perfect for massaging away aches and pains. Concealed thermostatic valves can further streamline the look and feel of your shower, or you can opt for a thermostatic shower tower, which incorporates all the functions you could need in a single panel.
Sanitaryware is another crucial element. Consider wall-hung toilets, which hide the tank behind the wall, to maximize floor space and make cleaning easier. Toilets installed level to the wall are another popular choice and create a neater look.
‘His’ and ‘Hers’ vanities are another practical and popular choice that can make busy weekday mornings a little less stressful.
To maximize luxuriousness, you need to consider the smallest details. A heated floor or heated towel rack can heighten the sense of luxury and comfort.
Lighting is also essential to setting the mood. Dimmer switches create a soothing atmosphere after a long day at work and help you unwind. Task lighting also increase both functionality and the feeling of luxury. Illuminated mirrors or cabinets help when shaving or putting on makeup, while carefully placed lamps or chandeliers create a focal point within the room.
Windows add to lighting as well. You may opt for large windows that overlook a gorgeous view or consider creating a small, plant-filled courtyard to act as a privacy screen.
To create an even more luxurious space, consider installing technology such as inset TVs or speakers. Nothing says relaxing after a long day like catching up on your favorite shows or listening to relaxing music.
