Treat Yourself to Some Master Bathroom Elegance and Luxury


We think we can all agree that the past 12 months have been very stressful for most of us. The stress level negatively affects our mood and is just plain exhausting. So we think it’s definitely time to consider some master bathroom remodeling that can also remodel your life. We have many ways to add special touches of luxury that may be just what you are looking for if your dream master bathroom is a spa-like getaway for relaxation and renewal.

The Spa Experience

Many homeowners are now finding there’s no match for the serenity of a soaking tub. We almost always design baths now with these elegant bathtubs rather than cumbersome whirlpool tubs so popular in the past. Roomy showers with lots of glass and a built-in seat are also becoming the norm. Modern fixture choices offer performance without sacrificing water efficiency.

When the master bath has room for two it also decreases the stress of busy mornings. Remodeling to include a separate toilet room offers privacy while double shower heads and side-by-side vanities let you both get ready in half the time.

Nooks and Niches

Architectural elements always add a touch of elegance to a room. Crown molding, beadboard or a custom tub surround will personalize your spa-like bath. We regularly include decorative tiled niches in the shower or next to the tub in the master bath. They are great storage for soaps and toiletries and eliminate the need for a caddy that hangs on the shower head or sticks to the wall. Another way to add some luxury is with a nook that sets aside a relaxing spot to sit and towel off after a steam shower or to apply makeup at a vanity. These are small ways to add luxurious touches and also to incorporate your unique style.

Warmth Right When You Need It

Adding warmth to the master bath will increase the pampering you will appreciate. Radiant heating for the floor and heated towel bars are luxurious touches that eliminate the cold shock of stepping from a relaxing bath or shower. This photo shows the installation of a heated floor in a recent Metro project.

A ventless electric fireplace with a remote control can be installed in any room of your home, so why not one in the bath? Smart technology also comes to the master bath with toilets that have a heated seat and shower systems with voice-activated technology that will turn on the shower set to the preferred water temperature of each person.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall…

“Alexa, is it going to rain today?” Smart mirrors such as Kohler’s Verdera mirror product line can interact with Amazon Alexa, doing tasks you can do from an Echo device, like giving you the weather or traffic report. Voice-activated mirrors have integrated stereo speakers and hands-free LED lights with custom settings for makeup application and grooming. They also feature motion-activated night lights for less disruptive middle-of-the night bathroom trips.

Make a Splash

A gorgeous tile floor or accent wall is a sure way to express yourself in the design of your master bath, even if your room is a neutral color. Choices are limitless: a bold color porcelain tile, an elegant slab of creamy marble, a Moroccan-design glass mosaic, glossy monochromatic tile in a herringbone, chevron or stacked pattern, or hand-painted ceramic tiles.

Tile is even available in beautiful woodgrain patterns with a natural look where you normally couldn’t have wood floors in a wet environment. Mix and match tile colors, sizes, and textures. Pick the style that’s perfectly “you” and your bath will stand out from the crowd.
