Shabby-chic bathrooms are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Now, homeowners are investing in hot interior design trends and creating their own private, spa-like oasis at home.
Fortunately, implementing upgrades and design elements that capture the atmosphere of a luxury bathroom is accessible for those on a budget. Here are five ways to add to your bathroom to create a luxury experience.
At a base level, upgrading your plumbing can improve not only the atmosphere of your bathroom but also your home’s resale value. According to the experts at Adko Plumbing, even the simple acts of replacing your toilet and clearing your drains properly can have a significant impact on the look and feel of your bathroom.
Replace your old toilet with a new-age, eco-friendly model. Consider replacing an old sink and cupboard with a vessel sink and shelved vanity or wall-to-wall counter. Showers can be upgraded with a rainfall showerhead, giving you something to look forward to when you get out of bed each morning.
Nothing ruins the feeling of a hot shower like stepping out onto a cold floor. Replace your current heating system with radiant heating in your bathroom for a consistent temperature that will warm you to the core. This is ideal if you get ready for your day in the bathroom, standing at the counter for prolonged periods.
Radiant heating can be installed in a single room and even in one part of a room if you desire. If you don’t already have ceramic tile in place in your bathroom, consider upgrading this design element at the same time.
The thought of adding a padded bench or comfortable chair in your bathroom might seem frivolous at first, but consider the practicality of this “luxury” addition. Having a comfortable place to sit that fits in with your interior design scheme can be useful when trying to trim or paint your nails. It can be a place to perch comfortably while drying your hair or reading your book while your child takes a bath.
From a design perspective, the style of seating that you choose can pull the room together. A modern-style bench will fit well with a high-tech bathroom, whereas a vintage upholstered chair can add to a more traditional design scheme.
Natural lighting is usually sparse in a bathroom. Short of installing new windows or a skylight, you can change the ambiance of the room by varying your lighting. Consider having dimmer switches to add a soothing atmosphere while taking a hot bath. On a separate switch, have bright lights surrounding your mirror to assist with getting ready for work in the morning or an evening on the town.
Upgrading dated light fixtures can also change the way your bathroom looks and is a simple, cost-effective way to create an air of elegance and luxury. Budget decorators can find bathroom light fixtures on clearance at their local hardware store or create expensive-looking DIY sconces.
To take your luxury bathroom, splurge on some extras that offer comfort and relaxation. For example, a temperature controlled shower tap or smart shower system will make your shower the best five minutes of your day. Adding a heated towel rack is a simple upgrade that will make you feel like you live at a spa.
Consider wiring your bathroom with Bluetooth speakers through which you can play your favorite playlist or the latest news reports about your upcoming commute to work. Accent pieces and artwork bring a room together in a cohesive decor scheme that will astound your guests.
Creating a luxury bathroom is a great way to improve the resale value of your home and escape to a private oasis without leaving your house.
