May 13, 2023

After a long day, luxury bathrooms are perfect for unwinding and forgetting the day’s worries. Luxury lovers adore a well-appointed bathroom with an elegant atmosphere. Luxury bathrooms have space. Larger bathrooms feel more lavish. A shower base, a dry area to change, and some freedom to move around create a rich and refined setting.

Your bathroom is the second-most-visited room in your house. A bathroom that matches the rest of the house will amaze guests not only homeowners but also guests. If so, you desire a tranquil, calming setting. With the appropriate colors and layout, your bathroom may induce relaxation.

Why Bathroom  Luxurious Design is Important

In recent statistics, it was found that daily bathroom usage averages 30–60 minutes. The average person urinates and defecates 4–10 times per day. Meanwhile, 60%–70% of survey participants prefer bathrooms with bathtubs. It only shows that the bathroom is a haven for relaxation, contemplation, and wellness. Your bathroom is where you literally and symbolically bare yourself, so its design should reflect that.

A well-designed bathroom with a high-quality bathtub is among the most popular home remodeling trends for enhancing your house’s value and quality of life. Since the bathroom is the heart of the house, many of us still need to pay attention to its design, and you can even install a bathtub on your own

Thus, your family’s life, the look of your home, and its value can all be improved by a well-planned bathroom and bathtub bliss. 

There are many reasons as to why homeowners invest a whole lot in improving their bathroom designs. They are:

1. It is Space for Everyday Tasks

The bathroom is often the tiniest room in many houses, yet it is one of the most frequently used. A well-designed bathroom requires space for your everyday tasks. Thus, the features and storage units should be taken into consideration. But many of us have small bathrooms that could be better for their function. 

With the right floor plan, your bathroom can have everything without feeling too small. A well-designed bathroom can help you take care of your everyday needs quickly and give you a relaxing break after a day of day-to-day engagements. For example, having soft lighting and great design touches can make your home feel like a spa right in your own home. 

2. It Showcases Your Personality

Many people use home design to show off their personality and style; the bathroom is the best place to do this. For example, if you like a quiet, relaxing atmosphere, choose one of the spa-like bathrooms that have become popular in the past few years. 

On the other hand, if you like colors and have a bold personality, you can decorate your bathroom with solid colors and touches. You can set the mood of the bathroom to your liking by adding candles, matching towels, artwork, colorful walls, and designed floors. With this transformation, your bathroom will be elevated to a realm beyond the mere essentials.

3. It Makes Things More Valuable and Durable

On the other hand, a well-made bathroom can make things easy, valuable, and durable. You can choose toilets and other bathroom items, as well as the floor, sinks, and wall finishes, making it easy to keep your bathroom clean. Even though the materials and finishes should look nice, they should also be strong enough to handle the moisture and dirt in a bathroom.

4. It’s An Investment in Your House

Investing in a beautiful bathroom can be a wise decision since it can significantly increase the value of your home and enhance its functionality. Renovating or replacing a bathroom can be quite costly, which is why potential buyers may be deterred if they perceive that your bathroom demands extensive repairs or improvements.

 It’s essential to keep your bathroom clean and aesthetically pleasing. As a result, when people come to view your property, they will be impressed with the quality of your bathroom and are more likely to consider buying your house.

How to Design a Relaxing and Luxurious Bathroom for a Retreat

The key is knowing what to add or subtract to produce the desired spa-like ambiance. If you want to redesign your bathroom into a little sanctuary, you have to make a few modifications to make it more welcoming.

Below are the tips in turning your bathroom into a spa-like retreat:

1. Add a Spa Sensations

If you don’t have a caddy for your bathtub, you’re missing out on some real spa sensations. This simple addition has a significant effect, and it’s available in a range of forms, from reclaimed wood to lucite, so you’ll have no trouble choosing one that matches your aesthetic.

2. Install Magical Keepers

Shelving is a small space dweller’s best friend, especially when organizing a small bathroom. Install a couple of layers of open shelving on your walls, a few baskets for towels and expensive soaps, and a decorative accent or two, and you’re done–spa getaway in an instant!

3. Add Gallery Wall

Artwork enhances the design of a bathroom in the same way it does a living room or bedroom. Integrating a large print or a gallery wall into your plan will add a dimensional layer of curiosity while making it appear more welcoming. Nothing is more luxurious than stepping into a room with a nice artwork on display.

4. Bring a Sense of Purity

“Creating a spa-like experience starts with the color scheme,” explains Improovy CEO Andre Kazimierski. “Spas are meant to exude cleanliness, brightness, and purity, so it’s best to go white.” Paint your walls white or a soft off-white, and select white tiles and cabinets. Your towels should also be white!

5. Replace the Old Stuff

You’ll be shocked at how much your look improves if you transfer your soaps, shampoos, lotions, and other products into a coordinated set of dispensers. This simple design approach has a strong design impact. Incorporating gold details throughout the bathroom for a sumptuous feel—cabinet knobs, soap dispenser, mirror frame, towel rack, etc. 

6. Bring Natural Vibe

Most spas have an earthy/natural vibe, so incorporate some plants! A hanging plant near a window can lift the space, but if you don’t have a window in your bathroom, a spider plant or a Boston fern (both of which grow in low light conditions) are good options.

7. Put Relaxing Lighting

When establishing a peaceful environment in your home spa, don’t underestimate the power of lighting! Candles will instantly lift your spirits, allowing you to unwind after a long day.
