It’s time for a bathroom renovation in your Oakville/Mississauga-area home. This is one of the most important areas of your home, and particularly the master bathroom. Design aesthetics come and go with time, but one trend that has come and stayed is turning your bathroom into a spa-like sanctuary. Doing so is pretty simple as long as you know which areas to focus on and what materials to use to give your bathroom space a relaxing, Zen-like feel. These 3 tips will help you make the most of the spa bathroom trend that’s popping up in homes everywhere.
- A Jetted Tub Turns into Spa-aaaaah
Professional designers know that in order to achieve a truly spa-like bathroom experience, you must have a jetted tub. Whether it’s freestanding or built-in, it’ll be a real focal point of your newly-designed bathroom. It will also be a big part of your relaxation routine. Who needs to visit the spa when you can relax in the heat and massaging bubbles of your own tub at home? Best of all, today’s jetted tubs are much easier to clean and maintain than the ones of yesteryear. Many of them shoot air from their jets, rather than water, meaning that there is no chance of gunky buildup inside the jet piping system. A tub that’s luxurious and easy to take care of? Yes, please!
- A Walk-In Shower Is a Must
Besides your tub, the next focal point of your bathroom will be your shower. Step into any newly-built luxury home in Oakville or Mississauga and you won’t find a master shower that’s enclosed with a shower curtain. Installing a walk-in, fully-glassed shower enclosure is the only way to go. It opens up your entire bathroom, making it feel more light and airy. Take the glass all the way up to the ceiling and turn your regular shower into a steam shower. In addition to all of this, with a full glass shower enclosure, you can show off the beautiful stone and tile choices you’ve made for the interior of the shower itself. For storage, a built-in shower shelf will be functional as well as beautiful.
- Bring Nature Inside
One of the most remarkable things about visiting a spa is how peaceful the environment is. In the best spas, this is due to the relaxing quiet, but also because of the soothing colours and materials they choose to design their facilities. When you’re renovating your bathroom, consider materials such as wood and natural stone. Even if your home is located in the middle of the city, when you step into your bathroom, you’ll feel as though you’ve walked into a little part of nature. If you don’t want to use real wood for your walls or floors, you can find tile that’s designed to look like various woods. This is a great way to go for something that’s waterproof and durable—you can even use it in the shower.
Choose colours that are natural, soft, and very muted. This will make your bathroom space a real sanctuary—one that you can escape to in order to get away from the frenetic energy and hubbub of the outside world.
