Any home can have a nice bathroom, but it takes a few special ingredients to create a luxury bathroom. Fortunately, you don’t have to be a movie star to create a bathroom with a spa-like atmosphere. Even simple steps like adding a soaking tub and upgrading your heating can make a big difference in giving your bathroom a luxurious feel.
1. Soaking Tub
Soaking tubs are deeper than traditional tubs, allowing you to truly relax in your bathroom after a long day. Some soaking tubs offer extra features to add luxury, including backrests and jets. To match the style of your bathroom, you can choose from an endless number of soaking tub designs made with wood, acrylic and other materials.
2. Heated Floors
In the morning, a cold bathroom floor is an unwelcome greeting to your feet. If you replace your bathroom flooring with a fresh set of tile, however, you can have electric heating mats installed under the new tile. This source of heat is easy to install and is an inexpensive way to keep your bathroom warm and cozy.
3. Anti-fog Mirrors
Although a hot shower feels nice, it does tend to have the unfortunate effect of fogging up all of the mirrors in your bathroom. Installing anti-fog mirrors in the bathroom can easily take care of this problem. Most anti-fog mirrors work by keeping the mirrors warm, thereby preventing shower steam from settling on the mirror.
4. Walk-in Showers
Walk-in showers add a touch of elegance to your bathroom and are easier to use for anyone who might have mobility issues. Your walk-in shower can be easily customized to meet the needs and design of your bathroom. If you opt for a small walk-in shower, you might even have enough room left to add a soaking tub. For extra impact, you can install extra shower heads to create a truly luxuriant experience
5. Towel Warmer
Drying off after your shower or bath will feel more comfortable with a warm towel. Towel warmers don’t take up too much space and provide a luxurious service. There are several different styles of towel warmers available, including wall-mounted racks for those with space concerns.
6. Skincare and Hygiene Products
A luxury bathroom won’t earn style points if you’re still using cheap skincare and hygiene products. Equip your sink and tub with high-quality soaps and lotions to transform washing into a moment of luxury. French-milled soaps create a creamy, fluffy lather; many of these soaps are enriched with moisturizing ingredients like shea butter and olive oil to eliminate the scummy after-wash feeling. Rich fragrances can add a further touch of elegance. Luxury lotions and body butters can lock in that after-shower freshness while treating and nourishing the skin.
