Transforming Your Bathroom into a Spa Retreat: Must-Have Features and Design Tips

October 24, 2023

For some of us, the bathroom is just a place in the home where you go to get ready for your day. But for others, it’s a spa-like haven. Having a room in your house that you can escape to, and relax and pamper yourself in can do wonders for your mental health.

Additionally, a bathroom remodel can significantly increase your home value. The RenoFi Renovation average shows an upscale remodel can add around $37,995 to your home’s value- 56.6% of the project’s cost.

So what changes can you make to transform your bathroom into a spa retreat? Here are a few suggestions.

Go Hi-Tech

    Bring technology into the bathroom to create a spa-like atmosphere. Consider adding medicine cabinets with refrigeration for eye cream and fog-free mirrors. You may also consider:

    · Smart Toilets and Bidets: These fixtures offer various features like automatic flush, air purification and deodorizing, heated seats, and night lights. Some have seats with slow-close options. You may also consider getting a toilet/bidet combo.

    · Smart Sinks and Showers: Smart sinks will turn on automatically when they detect motion. Showers can be programmed to a specific temperature, and spray setting. Some even change colors.

    · Smart Bathtubs: Smart bathtubs may have Bluetooth technology that connects to your phone or tablet. They may change colors or play music. Add a backrest or water heater for optimal comfort.

    Add Statement Lighting

    Once upon a time, bathroom lighting was limited to ceiling-mounted lighting that looked cold and impersonal. Today, people are getting creative with bathroom lighting. Choose a large chandelier that makes a statement in your space. Or opt for multiple pendant lights that can be adjusted according to mood.

    Incorporate Luxury Materials

    Your budget plays a vital role in your countertop selection. Materials like laminate offer an affordable option, while natural stones like granite or marble tend to be higher in cost. Quartz provides a middle ground, offering durability and aesthetics without the premium price tag of natural stone.

    Add Underfloor Heating

    No one likes stepping out of a shower or bath onto a cold, hard floor. Rugs add warmth and comfort to flooring, but underfloor heating provides the ultimate luxury. You may also consider installing a heated towel rail, so you are greeted by nice warm towels after you bathe.

    Consider a Freestanding Bath and Shower

    Bath and shower combos are often found in bathrooms, but you will soar to heights of luxury by installing freestanding units.

    Opt for an old-fashioned clawfoot tub or choose a sleek, modern unit. Pair it with a spacious walk-in shower with body jets and a handset for the ultimate luxury experience.

    Decluttering is Essential

    A luxury bathroom must be free of clutter. Get rid of things you don’t use. Consider installing organizers, cabinets, shower caddies, and shelving to store the things you need in an organized fashion.

    Install a Television

    A television in the bathroom will allow you to catch up on the news of the day during your morning shower. Or you can relax in the evening while watching your favorite programs.

    Several waterproof televisions are designed for bathroom use. They hang on the wall to take up minimal space. They can include features like voice control, touchscreen, HD audio, Bluetooth, and WIFI.

    Sing in the Shower

    Improve your singing in the shower skills with bathroom speakers. Or enjoy soothing music during a nighttime soak. There are several Bluetooth speakers available that are made for bathroom enjoyment.

    A Coat of Paint Can Do Wonders

    The right paint color will complete the look of your bathroom. And there are so many options to choose from.

    Some prefer the sleek look of all-white. Others opt for deep jewel tones that add a sense of luxury. Neutrals are a classic and can easily be combined with stone and tile elements.

    Infuse Aromatherapy

    Aromas can increase energy levels or promote a sense of calm. Bring them into your bathroom via incense sticks, candles, essential oils, flowers, and plants. Clean with baking soda to deodorize the room and keep it smelling fresh.

    Mount Dispensers on the Wall

    Various dispensers will clutter up the bathroom and cheapen it’s look. You can remedy that with mounted dispensers that hold conditioner, shampoo, soap, and body wash. They can be hung in the shower and over the sink. In addition to enhancing the look of your restroom, they are also convenient to use.
