8 Luxurious Improvements for Your Next Bathroom Remodel
  • Opening Intro -

    Let's face it—more than your living room, bedroom or den, your bathroom can reveal your home's true age.


And if you’re thinking of providing a much-needed remodeling of your bathroom, you may be looking for ideas on features that can add a touch of luxury, turning your bathroom from ordinary into an oasis. Check out these 8 ideas for ways to enhance your new bathroom’s beauty and comfort.

Jack & Jill Bathrooms Offer Maximum Convenience

A Jack and Jill bathroom is a bathroom that can easily be accessed by two rooms; for example, between two children’s rooms or between a child’s room and a guest room or office. Jack and Jill bathrooms offer en-suite convenience to two different spaces while still allowing for privacy and luxury. Perfect for saving space, Jack and Jill bathrooms don’t have to be purely utilitarian; they can be as well-appointed as master bathrooms or powder rooms.

Electrical Outlets in Vanity Cabinets Keep Clutter to a Minimum

There’s nothing that can make a bathroom feel more cluttered and out-of-sorts than a maze of curling irons, hair dryers and electric razors adorning the countertop, but constantly getting out and putting up these daily use items can be cumbersome.

By having your contractor install electrical outlets in your vanity cabinets, you’ll be able to store, charge and use all of your small bathroom appliances without needing to leave them out on your counters.

Radiant Heat Keeps Your Toes Toasty

Stepping out from a hot shower onto a cold bathroom tile floor can be an uncomfortable experience. To improve your bathroom’s comfort and increase its feeling of luxuriousness, consider adding built-in radiant heat to your flooring. Radiant heat gets the floor warm while you’re in the shower, making getting out a much more pleasant experience.

A Freestanding Bathtub Is an Amazing Statement Piece

If you’re looking for a way to amp up the glam in your bathroom space, consider opting for a freestanding bathtub. Freestanding bathtubs help make the room look more airy and spacious and can serve as a statement piece for the bathroom.

Whether you choose a traditional single-ended clawfoot tub in a vintage style or a double-slipper copper tub that complements both modern and rustic decors, you’re certain to enjoy the added comfort and beauty that a freestanding bathtub can provide.

Walk-In Showers are Beautiful and Practical

An excellent way to add more practical luxury to your home and your remodeled bathroom is the addition of a walk-in shower. Similar to a freestanding bathtub, a walk-in shower can create a more open space while adding an interesting design element.  If you want to increase the open, airy feeling of the space, you should consider using glass shower side panels al allow the eye to travel to and through the shower walls.

Warm up Your Bathroom, Literally, with a Cozy Fireplace

There’s nothing like a fireplace to help create a warm, inviting space—and adding a fireplace to your master bathroom is no exception. A fabulous way to add interest and beauty to your en suite facilities, convenient fireplaces that use gas, electricity or ethanol can help take the chill off a cool bathroom while creating a visual focal point for the bathroom.

Enjoy the Subtle Glamour of Stone Flooring

Most commonly seen in luxury spa environments, stone flooring offers an attractive surface for walk-in showers and bathroom flooring. From marble and granite to slate and travertine, natural stone flooring is some of the most expensive flooring you can buy but offers excellent durability and resale value.

Take Advantage of Natural Light with Windows and Skylights

Natural light is one of the most luxurious elements a bathroom can have; after all, spaces with ample natural light tend to create happy, relaxed environments that instantly lift the mood. As you’re remodeling your bathroom, consider adding windows of various sizes or even adding skylights if adding a window is not an option.

And because privacy is a concern in a bathroom, you’ll feel confident knowing that you can take advantage of different window treatments and type of glass that will allow the light to shine in but will keep prying eyes out.

Remodeling is a Great Time to Add Luxury to Your Bathroom

If your bathroom no longer works well for your lifestyle or it’s simply out-of-date, remodeling is a great option and the perfect time to add features and functionality to your bathroom that make it both more attractive and more comfortable. Consider the space savings and convenience of a Jack and Jill bathroom, and add in-vanity electrical outlets to keep small appliances hidden from view.

Additionally, take a close look at options like radiant heat, freestanding bathtubs and walk-in showers to increase your comfort and create a stylish space that will serve you for years to come. And for the ultimate in luxury, think about adding sumptuous stone flooring, a cozy fireplace or even windows or skylights to your bathroom. By following these tips, you’ll be on your way toward creating a bathroom that feels as luxurious as your favorite high-end spa.
