Luxury Bathroom: Fantasy or Reality?
Setting the Scene You recently purchased a home. It’s time to make it your own…turn it into your dream home…beginning with the bathroom. It's large with a bath and shower combination and a solitary sink, not set into a vanity. There's a window but the window is small and it doesn't let much light into the room.WindowsWindows are the perfect way to let in natural light and brighten your first waking moments of the day. If your window is small then enlarge the window and put a bench seat below it, with cabinets to hold extra towels and your favorite soaps, bath oils and other amenities. Floor Remove the carpet or boring “standard” tile from the bathroom floor and replace it with custom tile. Don't use tiles which are all the same size. Use large opaque tiles and have small translucent mosaic tiles set along the grout lines. This will give you the “glam” and luxurious spa like feeling your seeking. Also, if the thought of “cold” tile in the mornings isn’t exactly appealing you can add heated floors (yes…even in Texas). Sink Create two separate sink and vanity combinations or one dual-sink vanity with a lot of surface space. Add shelves in the storage space below the sinks for your bath sheets and towels. Or create a built in vanity with a plush stool or chair you can use in the mornings to put on make-up, do your hair, and get dressed. Remember you’re creating your retreat. Tubs There are amazing tubs available from simple oversized tubs to custom tubs with chromatherapy, aromatherapy, thermotherapy and hydro-thermal massage. Or maybe you prefer the “old world” look of architectural freestanding tubs that add an interesting design element. You decide what makes you feel pampered. Showers A must in every luxury bathroom is a large shower system such as steam showers, large rain shower heads, dual shower heads, hand held sprayers and body sprayers. The options are truly endless.You now have the vision. You’ve identified the features which will give you the bathroom of your dreams.
