Luxury Designer Bathroom
You have seen
examples of a luxury designer bathroom in all the architectural magazines. You stop to look at how
the large shower makes the room seem even bigger than it is.
Or perhaps it's an elevated corner bath that sits in the junction
of two windows, flooding the room with natural sunlight, giving everything in the bathroom a warm, luxurious
You can almost feel the thick towels stacked by the sauna and the
heavy carpeting beneath your feet. You can picture yourself walking into your designer bathroom early in the
morning, still half asleep.
Walk In Shower
One of the things that makes your morning wake up so enjoyable is
walking into your luxury bathroom and into your walk in shower. You don’t have to be awake to remember to pick up
your foot to step over the edge with the water stop. The amount of hot water pouring over your body makes waking up
an all right thing. Your body will respond to the fresh scrubbed feeling
and your mind will be awake, sharp and ready for the day.
Keep your vision of how you want it to look and feel, because the
planning stage is an important juncture in reaching that final reality of what you want in your designer
Heating is one consideration. If you have chosen tile or stone for
the flooring, a cold floor makes for grumpy feet, while underfloor heating can
bring a smile to even the grumpiest of us.
Heated Towel Rack
Another detail to consider is installing Towel Warmers. There is just something luxurious about wrapping
your body in a big warm bath sheet that warms you to the bone. Having heated towels when you get out of the
shower or bath is certainly a personal perk that can be enjoyed by a few who think ahead when they plan their
designer bathroom. Talk about bringing a smile to your face.
In one of our master baths we added a small counter space where we
had a coffee maker, a small refrigerator and a sink that was deep enough to easily fill the coffee pot. The idea
was to set the coffee maker up the night before to automatically make coffee in the morning. That way, when we got
out of the shower, we could pour ourselves a fresh cup of coffee. It was a nice touch.
Remember that a luxury bathroom is one that may have the look of a
designer bathroom, but the real luxury is …you are the designer.
