With the right design help, your next trip to the spa could be as easy as a walk down the hall.
Master bathrooms are no longer simply attached to the largest bedroom in the house. Now they are being professionally designed as part of a deluxe suite with a peaceful atmosphere offering homeowners a day-spa type experience.
What elements are designers using to create in-home spa spaces? Among the most popular:
- Double vanities and customized storage. Two sinks are among the features most requested by clients renovating a bathroom. The storage area of the vanity can be customized, with options including warming drawers for towels and small refrigerators to chill water.
- Walk in showers with steam/sauna features. Hotels have been using designer showers for years to give their rooms a “wow” factor, now they’re common in high-end bathrooms.
- Extra large tubs. Freestanding has come back into fashion, and both water and air jets are a natural fit in a luxury in-home spa design.
- Heated towel racks are a must in creating an indulgent experience. Nothing feels better than wrapping up in a warm towel.
- A walk-in closet and dressing area. The locker rooms at day spas are beautifully appointed, with mirrors and accent furnishing. Why not have a luxurious dressing area for your in-home spa?
- Radiant floor heating enables you to enjoy the beauty of tile, while providing a comfortable feel on bare feet.
- Decorative touches. Although area rugs, light fixtures, and artwork usually are reserved for bedrooms and other living spaces, they add character to your serene oasis. Chandelier, anyone?
You’re up on the trends, and ready for your own relaxing retreat!
