Staying in a special 5-star hotel is always appealing, especially with such luxurious amenities as a marble bathroom with a roomy soaking tub and heated floor. When the holiday comes to an end, however, so does the daily pampering and you remind yourself that all good things do come to an end. Or do they?
The solution is to recreate that same lavish ambience under your own roof, with all of the indulgent perks your personal taste and imagination can conjure. A great bathroom remodeling project can turn your drab and time-worn bathroom into a unique and well-appointed spa experience, with all the comforts and familiarity of home.
Tips for 5-Star Bathroom Remodeling
- Striking symmetry & simplicity – You’ve probably noticed that most great hotels have a particular décor theme for all of the rooms, often one that is tastefully simple with minimal clutter. When it comes to your own bathroom remodeling, consider a similar approach. Opt for subtle, luxurious colors, such as silver and white or champagne and ivory cream. If your bathroom is large enough, create symmetry by including his-and-hers sinks and custom wall cabinets for toiletries. Add high impact accents that unify the overall space.
- Pick a focus – Although obviously an integral part of bathrooms, plumbing doesn’t have to be the sole focus of the room. Don’t settle for just replacing your shower stall and toilet. For greater luxury, upgrade to a soaker tub and bidet, instead, and consider the design of the room as a whole. When you first enter the bathroom, make sure you will see something truly striking, like a small antique cabinet or stylish mirror. Touches like this will make the bathroom more than purely utilitarian. Why not display a gorgeous chandelier at the center of the room? How’s that for glam?!
- Go with luxury fixtures & features – When starting the project, talk to your bathroom remodeling specialist about utilizing top quality, luxury fixtures and amenities to create a truly sumptuous space. Consider the possibility of your very own sauna or steam bath. What about a rain shower beside a gleaming Jacuzzi? Pass on humdrum, typical designs and opt for a glass bowl style sink for a streamlined modern look. Imagine a floor-to-ceiling window with custom-etched glass in any design you like; let in the light while maintaining your privacy. Consult a design and build contractor who can give you terrific ideas and source exactly what you need for this this deluxe bathroom makeover.
- Go high end & high tech – Many quality hotels and spas have embraced some of the latest technology in their state-of-the-art bathrooms, from self-flushing toilets to motion sensing taps, and even high-tech hair dryers. Consider having any or all of these installed during the bathroom remodeling project of your dreams.
Complete Bathroom Remodeling is Well Worth It
Simply repainting the walls and fixing those few broken tiles in the corner of the shower stall won’t really cut it when you have something far more exceptional in mind. Instead of making piecemeal adjustments along the way, go for the gusto all at once and consider a complete bathroom remodeling project to create your own 5-star luxury at home. Spa-like serenity is just around the corner, or even closer, if you upgrade your existing en suite with the latest select amenities.
