The moment you wake up in the morning, you head into your bathroom and do all your morning rituals there. Before hitting the sack at night, you spend the last minutes of your day in the bathroom brushing your teeth and washing your face, among other things. Unless you have a daily routine that is decidedly different from what most humans do, your day will always start and end in your bathroom.
The bathroom may be one of the least spacious rooms in your home, but you spend a lot of quality time there, especially when you’re the type who loves taking long, hot showers or indulging in a deep, scented bath for hours. Would wishing for a more luxurious bathroom be too much then?
Of course not. Your bathroom is your refuge, and giving it a feeling of luxury—and the calm and tranquility that comes with it—is something that you deserve after a hard day’s work.
So what do you need to make your bathroom a luxurious one?
The best fixtures
The most obvious way of making a bathroom look and feel more luxurious is by installing the best available fixtures. Customized brass faucets, a stylish sink, and a free-standing bathtub are just some of the bathroom fixtures that scream luxury and set a bathroom apart from the others. A free-standing bathtub alone is quite impressive, because they’re quite aesthetically pleasing and incredibly inviting.
A bathroom can never be called a luxurious one if the materials used in building it aren’t of the highest quality available.
Ceramic tiles, for instance, are good, but they’re commonly used in ordinary bathrooms too. Marble, quartz, and granite, on the other hand, are an entirely different story. When used on bathroom walls, baths, or on countertops, the entire bathroom will radiate a sense of luxury that is instantly detectable the moment anyone walks into it. So if you’re thinking about remodeling your bathroom, keep the above materials in mind.
Luxury bathroom design
A bathroom can have the most luxurious fixtures and the best quality materials, but still look ordinary if the bathroom design leaves a lot to be desired. A luxury bathroom should always exude an air of sophistication, and this is typically achieved if all its elements, from the tub, shower, toilet, and sinks, come together to form a seamless aesthetic experience. Fortunately, the world is full of capable designers who can help you make your bathroom design as elegant and beautiful as you want it.
A luxury bathroom is never complete without the amenities that help make and keep it that way. While not a part of the entire bathroom construction process, putting up amenities soft towels and nice rugs put an exclamation point on your goal of having a luxury bathroom for you and your family to enjoy. Add in a heated towel rail, and you’ll have a luxury bathroom feature that will make everything feel warmer and cozier during the colder months of the year. Heated floors will also be a hit. To make your luxury bathroom feel like a spa, supply it with scented soaps and lotions.
Of course, all these are going to cost you a pretty penny, and if you have the budget for it, then nothing should stop you from chasing that dream luxury bathroom of yours. We all know that there are tricks out there that will help you get a seemingly luxurious bathroom for a fraction of the price, but the key word there is “tricks.” If you really want to make your bathroom luxurious in the truest sense of the word, follow the tips above and achieve that genuinely luxury bathroom you’ve always wanted.
