Master Bathroom Spa Retreats
Spas: Creating the Ultimate Oasis
Master bathrooms are getting a lot of attention when it comes to remodeling. They’ve become the ultimate oasis destination to reward yourself after a long day. At Capozzi Design Group, we’re seeing homeowners throughout the greater Cleveland and Chagrin Falls area want to make significant improvements to their master bathrooms.
Creating the perfect master bath remodeling plan starts with a vision, design, professional guidance, and creativity.
It’s important to understand the differences between a master bathroom and a “master bath spa”. Many master baths are spacious, warm, inviting, but also air on the side of utilitarianism. For many homeowners in the Chagrin Falls area, that may be all they want and need. Master bathroom spas on the other hand, are often viewed as an oasis; they are used as places to decompress, relax, unwind, and even recharge. Master bath spas are places where the mind and body can escape from a busy and hectic lifestyle.
While everybody’s interpretation of their ideal master bathroom spa will vary, our bath design/build experts have outlined a few features that categorize master baths as master math spas:
The Bathtub as the Ultimate Luxury
Bathtubs come in in a variety of shapes and sizes and can include a number of amenities.
From a design perspective, many homeowners have been adding soaking tubs to their master bathrooms when remodeling as a visual focal point. Tubs have once again started to return as the “Rockstar” of the master bathroom.
Some tubs may also be an air-jetted to provide a gentle massage or constant stream of water, with various settings.
A new master bath spa will accommodate the homeowner, whenever the mood strikes. With a few scented candles and good bath salts, your oasis is only a couple of feet from your bed.
Many homeowners want to make sure they add the latest technology when they remodel their master bathroom. Spending added time in a luxurious master bathroom spa makes entertainment a natural extension of the space. Adding flat-screen TVs and stereos in the bathroom is a great way to keep happy and entertained.
When providing bath design advice, we’re seeing that almost every homeowner wants their bath remodeling project to include a well-designed shower. The shower is where homeowners start their day and it is the closest thing to a spa day that can be experienced without leaving home.
As with baths, there are plenty of options for a new shower. An example of a high-end option may include a programmable shower and a variety of showerheads or sprays programmed to suit individual bathers in the household. Another example may be a hand-held, multi-use showerhead with multiple settings and various water sprays.
Choose Color Carefully
A master bathroom spa is expected to exude peace and calming factors. That being said, a warm neutral color palette is enough to set the tone with a relaxing feel that doesn’t overwhelm the eyes.
Light the Bathroom Mood
As much as bathroom lighting affects the mood, it has other benefits.
Install side lighting around bathroom or vanity mirrors, as above mirror lighting throws shadows on the face, which creates a better physical appearance while lighting at eye level is better for grooming.
Vanity sconces at eye level, both to the right and left of the bathroom mirror should do the trick.
Cozy Toes with Heated Floors
Stepping out of the bath or shower is something to look forward to with heated floors that keep the feet toasty year-round. Porcelain floor tile is an excellent alternative to ceramic because it is not as cold. Feel free to include a wall-mounted, heated towel rack to keep towels nice and warm.
A home master bathroom spa has special touches that exceed the ordinary. Discover how an experienced bathroom designer can creatively turn your master bath into the spa oasis you can relax in at the end of a busy day. Whether it has a walk-in shower with multi-level jets mounted in the wall, or an extra-large soaking bathtub next to a fireplace, the master bathroom spa transforms that which is common into that which is extraordinary.
