When you're in your bathroom, what kind of feeling would you like the space to evoke? Many people want to feel like they are in a spa when they are in their bathrooms. If this resonates with you, then you need to make decisions with that goal in mind when planning your remodel. Here are some ideas to get you started. Each of them will help make your bathroom feel more like a spa.
Imagine stepping out of the shower or bathtub and onto a heated floor. That would be so relaxing, especially in the winter. Heated floors are not as hard to install as you might imagine. Before your contractor puts the new floor down, they can simply loop some electric heating elements over the subfloor. They'll cover the heating elements with the flooring. When you flip a switch, the heating elements will warm up the floor within a few minutes.
An Open Shower
If your bathroom is spacious enough to handle it, you could have an open shower installed. This is a shower that does not have any doors or even a frame. The floor is simply pitched in a way that allows the water to drain towards the floor drain. The area around the shower is covered in waterproof tile so it can get wet without an issue. There's something about showering in this open space that feels quite luxurious and spa-like.
A simple way to make the bathroom feel more spa-like is to install accent lighting throughout the space. You could add a few accent lights close to the ceiling to cast a warm glow onto the ceiling. Installing lights under drawer pulls and alongside mirrors adds additional character to the space. If you include enough accent lights in your design, you'll be able to turn the overhead lights off and still see clearly when you are showering, which makes for a spa-like feel.
A Separate Tub
Having a separate tub and shower in your bathroom will really bring the luxury to the next level. You'll be able to choose the tub you want without worrying whether it's compatible with a shower surround. Look for one with jets, lights, and other features for a more spa-like appeal.
With the ideas above, you can easily give your bathroom a more spa-like feel. For more information, reach out to a company that offers residential bathroom remodel services.
