One of the hottest trends in home remodeling is turning your bathroom into a luxury spa. People across the country are updating and upgrading their master bathrooms and making them into personal retreat spaces. At Janssen Glass, we are seeing some amazing upgrades to the once basic bathroom. Here are some of the most common features we are seeing.
One of the biggest remodeling revolutions we’ve seen is removing the large soaking or jetted tub to make room for a larger, much more luxurious shower. Many people realized they only use their tubs once in a blue moon, but shower every single day, so it made sense to get rid of the tub and create a space they could appreciate on a daily basis. Luxury showers are becoming the must-have feature in remodeled bathrooms. Many of these enclosures feature multiple shower heads, sleek frameless shower doors, steam options, beautiful tile work with recessed niches for shampoo, body wash, etc., built-in seating, sound systems and more.
Most bathrooms have some sort of tile flooring. Bathrooms are also the room you are most likely to go barefoot in. Combine those two facts, and you can see the appeal of a heated tile floor. Stepping onto a warm floor, especially in winter, makes one feel pampered and spoiled. Heated floors are a must-have for today’s luxury bathrooms.
Automation has made its way into our lives in many areas and the luxury bathroom is no exception. Many automated features are being included in the modern master bathroom. Motion sensor lighting, touchless faucets, and toilet seats that lower automatically are all popular additions. Even heated toilet seats and bidets are becoming popular.
Including a stereo system in the design is the latest upgrade in the luxury bath. A built-in sound system can bring soothing relaxing music or soothing sounds to bath time. If you’re trying to create a spa-like experience, you can add blue-tooth speakers and play any kind of music, listen to podcasts, or even sounds of nature. If you’re trying to unplug, sound can be the key to creating an immersive experience and taking you away from reality.
Mirror Mirror on the Wall
Even mirrors are getting a technology tweak. Smart mirrors feature a digital display behind the glass and connect to your phone via Bluetooth or WiFi. A smart mirror, sometimes called a magic mirror, displays current information like the date and time, weather forecast, calendar, news, traffic, and social media updates. All of the information you need is right in front of you, so you’re ready to slay the day
We have five senses. Don’t forget about the sense of smell. Candles, incense, and bath bombs in relaxing scents like lavender, vanilla, or chamomile can all infuse the olfactory system and help calm frayed nerves and overactive minds. The addition of soothing smells can create a multi-sensual escape that eases tensions. The best thing about aromatherapy is that it isn’t an expensive upgrade, but it is essential to create an immersive escape.
Luxury bathrooms are all the rage. If you are updating or upgrading your bathroom, remember to include some of these luxury touches to create a space where you can relax and unwind.
