When a homeowner looks to remodel a bathroom, the tendency is to create bathroom suites that emphasize luxury. Trends in luxury bathrooms include freestanding baths, sophisticated faucets and other fixtures and the use of high-end materials.
What then are the trends in luxury bathrooms around the world? A bathroom is a space in which its users spend a lot of time, alone and in privacy, and they are rooms that are meant to relax people, especially after a hard day at work. It becomes luxurious when it has features like a spa with designer tiles and overhead showers that have multi-jet systems that have options for steam.
Roll top baths are both luxurious, stylish and it is considered cool to have a free-standing bathtub in a bathroom. It is a luxury to sink into a bathtub that is full of bubbles from bath salt or filled with the aroma of bath oils. Most roll top bathtubs are designed to keep the water warm for long times, because of the inbuilt insulation in the walls of the tub.
There are other things that are trending in luxury bathrooms and these include extraneous things like having heated floors, a TV for entertainment and even fridges and minibars to really help you relax. There can be many other additions that you can make that can add to the luxury in a bathroom.
Plan your bathroom in detail before you go forward to convert it into a luxury bathroom. Look at magazines, design sites on the Internet, or visit showrooms. You can get some ideas if you visit five-star hotels and see the amenities that are provided in the bathrooms attached to suites. You will, of course, need to be practical and look at things you can easily install in the bathroom that you have. Space may be a constraint, but even in small spaces, you can always look at multi-jet shower systems. You can also look at heated towel rods which are a small, yet luxurious touch.
Sinks & Faucets
Sinks can be changed to have high-end sinks made of carved marble, glass, copper, bronze or even hand painted porcelain. A luxury sink that you can choose from these various alternatives makes a greater impact if it positioned on the top of the vanity. High-end faucets are those that can be jointed in two or three places so that the spray of water can be directed to anywhere that you desire. Then, for the ultimate in luxury, these can be gold plated or finished with other exotic materials.
Sound & Lighting
You can add sound and light to your bathroom to give it a soothing experience when you are using it. You can install multiple shower heads and even add digital controls which allow you to choose the shower head, the sprays, the temperature and even any sound and light features. Such customized shower stalls allow each member of the family to use his or her own settings that will be remembered and can be activated with just the touch of a button.
Luxury bathrooms can have wall and floors in a handmade tile that come in a range of-of color and designs and add a personal touch to your luxury bathroom. Make your bathroom environmentally friendly by installing fixtures and fittings that help you to save water and energy.
