Make spa-style relaxation part of your daily routine by upgrading your bathroom. If you're considering a bathroom remodel, our real estate agents recommend these luxurious upgrades.
- Add a Free-Standing Soaking Tub
It has become the standard for luxury bathrooms to now offer both a separate, walk-in shower and a free-standing soaking tub. For the most spa-like experience, design your bathroom remodel around the soaking tub as a focal point. A soaking tub offers a much more luxurious bathing experience, with options such as deeper water, a comfortable sloped back, and Jacuzzi jets.
- Spring for Heated Floors
If you're remodeling your entire bathroom, you might as well install heating elements while the floors are being re-tiled anyway. With heated floors, you can say goodbye to cold toes and icy tile in the winter. Whether you're stepping out of a relaxing bath or a rejuvenating shower, the floor under your feet will be heated to a comfortable temperature.
- Install Plush Seating
One of the main differences between your favorite spa and the typical bathroom is the availability of comfortable seating. This could be an upholstered chair, a vanity seat, or a cushioned, built-in bench. Make your bathroom a place to relax and put your worries behind you by ensuring you'll always have a comfortable place to sit, whether you're waiting for your bath to fill, applying makeup, or putting on your shoes.
- Create Airy Spaces
If you browse the most luxurious bathrooms found in the best Saint Louis homes for sale, you'll notice that one thing they have in common is that they are light, bright, and often white. Take that small, dark bathroom and remodel it to make it open and airy, giving it the sense of being a getaway right in the middle of your own home.
- Decorate with Mother Nature
One thing most spas have in common is the amount of greenery you find inside them. Bringing nature into the spa is relaxing, and it can do the same for you in your bathroom at home, too. Decorate with greenery and flowering house plants, hanging pictures with relaxing nature scenes, and use windows and skylights to let in lots of natural light and make the most of the view.
- Set the Mood with a Chandelier
A chandelier helps to set the mood in any room, and your bathroom is no different. Many luxury bathrooms with a soaking tub as the focal point hang a chandelier directly over it. The chandelier adds beauty, glamour, sophistication, and most importantly, the right kind of lighting to set the mood. Who wouldn't feel relaxed while soaking in a tub with a glass of wine in one hand and a crystal chandelier overhead?
