Your home should be a sanctuary from the world outside of work and play. But what about a sanctuary from the world inside your home? When you're juggling family, chores and entertaining, what better way to relax and pamper yourself than in a calming, spa-like master bath?
Here's how to transform your master bath into an oasis you'll love retreating to for relaxation and restoration at the end of the day.
There’s nothing more soothing than taking a long, luxurious soak in the tub. But don't assume you're stuck with the builder-grade tub that came with your master bathroom when you bought your home. Depending on your budget and the space available, you have a dizzying array of tubs to choose from. Freestanding clawfoot tubs are timeless and give off a glamorous, vintage vibe. An oval garden tub is an excellent choice for those who prefer a roomy soak. And an extravagant corner tub may take up a lot of space, but it'll make you feel like you’re living in the lap of luxury.
And don’t forget about the extra features! While you could stick with the jets and bubbles of a whirlpool tub, some tubs actually come with underwater LED lights. If you're interested in upping your bath game, be sure to check out the selection of tubs at the Bath Trends showroom.
It's amazing how simply changing out the tile in your bathroom can transform the entire space. With your tile choices, you can turn your bathroom into an exotic Moroccan retreat, a rustic cottage getaway or an Asian-inspired zen escape. There are so many different tile materials and styles to choose from, so you’re only limited by your imagination.
Reproduce the atmosphere of a luxury hotel atmosphere by using the same tile on the floors and up the walls. Or create a focal wall with a mosaic style to design the rest of the bathroom around. And with tile that looks like wood, you can get that hardwood feel without worrying about warping. To see the wide variety of options available, stop by Porcelanosa to see their tile selection.
Lighting can make or break any room, and it's especially important in the master bathroom since it’s probably the place where you spend a lot of time getting ready for the day or a night out. But you don’t want harsh, unflattering light, either.
An overhead light alone will cast a shadow when you’re standing at the mirror, so it’s always a good idea to add some additional lighting throughout the room. Consider mounting lights above and beside the mirrors in addition to the overhead light. And don’t forget to add soft lights above the tub and shower— nobody wants to bathe in the dark. It might also be a good idea to put the lights on a dimmer switch, so you can adjust the light depending on whether you're getting ready or relaxing in the tub. Be sure to check out Waterworks — they have a large collection of bathroom lighting options to choose from.
If replacing the tub and tile isn’t an option right now, there are enough small tweaks you can make to give your bathroom an overhaul. Look into replacing things like faucets, sinks and light fixtures. Replace a drop-in sink with a vessel one. Hang a vintage chandelier above the bathtub for a touch of extravagance. Bring the peacefulness of nature inside with green plants and flowers. For fixtures and other bathroom accessories, Sherle Wagner is the place to go.
