Create a luxurious bathroom that you can retreat to after a long day with these 8 must-have amenities for the high-end bathroom of your dreams.
Heated floors provide optimal comfort and are a great way to warm up in the colder months. There’s nothing quite like stepping out of the shower or tub onto a warm, heated floor. If you’re worried about sustainability, heated floors actually help you to cut down on your energy usage and save money on your heating bill, especially if you install the hydronic variety.
A Built-In Shower Bench
A built-in shower bench is a necessity for an open shower. Not only does it make for a great place to sit down and relax, it also makes it easier to shave and rinse off. A built in bench made of granite or composite stone makes for easy cleaning, so you won’t have to worry about getting into all of the nooks and crannies.
A Separate Tub and Shower
Instead of going with a traditional shower and tub combination, switch it up with a separate tub and shower. If you have enough space this is a great option to really customize the room. Whether you pair a glass, frameless shower with a claw foot tub or a curbless shower with an elegant soaking tub, the style and design is up to you.
A luxurious soaking tub is a great focal point for your bathroom. If you’re looking to create a comfortable, relaxing environment, a soaking tub will do the trick. After all, there’s nothing quite like a lavish soak in the tub to wind down after a long week. This spa-like addition offers you many customization options in terms of materials and shape, so you’ll really be able to create your dream bathroom.
Why go to a luxury hotel to get the comfort of a steam shower when you can install one in your own bathroom? Not only are they known to improve circulation, but they also boast clearer skin and a sounder sleep as added benefits.
Heat up your bathroom with a custom fireplace. This traditional design element is a sure-fire way to add elegance and sophistication to your bathroom. A rustic built-in fireplace will allow for a relaxing view from your tub and will give you the peaceful serenity that you usually associate with a high-end spa.
Plenty of Storage
A true mark of a high-end bathroom is its added storage space. When designing your bathroom, make sure you’re utilizing every inch with hanging shelves, benches with hidden drawers, and multiple cabinets to store towels and toiletries.
His and Hers Vanities
Dual vanities are a must in high-end bathrooms. His and her vanities will allow for more personal space for morning and nightly routines as well as giving you more counter space to store your belongings and keep things organized.
