Create A Spa-Like Bathroom
According to our designers and architects the master bathroom is not just a utilitarian space to brush your teeth or take a shower. Instead, the master bath is more integrated with the master bedroom to create a haven for rest, relaxation, pampering and romance.
Homeowners are looking to blend spa-like amenities with their unique vision of comfort and style in the bathroom, which is why special care is given to designing a more luxurious and pampering master bath.

Our designers and architects have put together a helpful list of design considerations to help you create a spa-like master bath:
- An extra deep soaking tub, air bath or jetted hot tub so you can fully immerse yourself in warm, soothing water.
- If you prefer showers to baths than you can create a custom shower that combines a series of showerheads and body sprays mounted on the walls and ceilings to give you an invigorating massage.
- Most shower systems come with an electronic control that will allow you to preset sprays, temperature, music, steam and water use, so you can enjoy a highly personalized therapeutic experience.
- New construction is the perfect to time to add radiant heated flooring, so you'll always be warm and toasty after your bath or shower. And don't forget the heated towel racks.
- If you like taking a long hot shower then a steam-free mirror is the perfect accessory. These mirrors automatically turn on with the lights, so you don't even need to flick a switch.
- Choose materials and finishes that enhance the overall look of your space, but also provide lifetime value. Combining natural stone, metals, glass and handcrafted tiles creates not only a stunning appeal, but also one that is durable.
- Glass is also growing in popularity for sinks, floors, countertops, toilet enclosures and glass walls around showers because it provides a sleek and eye-catching alternative to traditional materials.
- Consider a dressing area or connect a walk-in closet to both the bathroom and the bedroom.
- Elegant vessel sinks and faucets accented by lighting and stylish vanities are a gorgeous alternative to traditional bath cabinets and contribute to your opulent design.
- For a little music and entertainment, you can opt for waterproof controls and speakers that bring music directly into the shower or incorporate a flat screen TV into your wall or vanity design.
Nowadays, luxury is about more than just style, it's also about value. After all, many of the most luxurious materials on the planet (diamonds, gold and marble) are extremely durable and timeless. Because consumers are looking at their homes as a long-term commitment, many are spending time planning spaces that will continue to deliver luxury and style for years to come.
When it comes to choosing colors for your bath walls, floors, cabinetry and fixtures our designers recommend picking analogous colors (ones located next to each other on the color wheel). Different tones of the same color family create a soothing effect, while pairing complementary colors (located across from each other on the color wheel) creates drama. They also recommend using eco-friendly paint products or creating color with natural wall tiles.
