According to Kitchen and Bath Business, homeowners have higher expectations for their bathrooms than ever before. They want a luxurious, spa-like space like the wealthiest mansion-dwellers enjoy.
So what are the secrets to achieving a luxurious bath? Consider the following concepts:
Space: Getting ready for the day or night out is done in one large room, with adjoining closets and separate sectors for bathing, grooming and dressing.
Privacy: A master bath should be inaccessible to any other rooms besides the master bedroom. Separate “his and her” water closets, along with separate dressing areas, help keep the marital romance alive.
Serenity: You’ll find most luxury baths in Houzz.com, Pinterest.com, or upper echelon magazines are done in soothing colors, like gentle shades of water.
Task lighting: The lighting in luxury baths is designed to enhance the task at hand, like shaving, avoid glare and flatter skin tones.
Quality: Wealthy people choose designs that stand the test of time including high-quality metal fixtures, solid-core doors, and fine wood, stone, and tile.
The future: Many luxury baths have features with a secondary purpose. Wider doorways, levers instead of knobs, zero-step showers, and textured flooring look great but also allow homeowners to gracefully age in place.
Remodeling isn’t practical for everyone, but you can incorporate some ideas for your bath that will help you enjoy it more. Meanwhile, buy yourself some fluffy new bathsheets, light the candles and dim the lights for a long soak in the tub. You’ll feel like a million.
