Bathroom renovations involve more than just tearing out the floors and installing new fixtures. In fact, you can make unique additions to your bathroom that turn it from a dull space into a luxurious haven.
It's the little details that matter, including lighting, windows and style. Along with the more significant renovations, such as upgrading the plumbing system and waterproofing your walls/floors, consider these luxurious additions.
A chandelier and floor lighting
Lighting is one of the most important parts of a bathroom renovation. You and your family will spend lots of time in the bathroom after dark, including when taking nighttime showers. A simple way of taking your lighting to the next level is by installing a chandelier.
Chandeliers are classy, authentic and warm. When installed in the middle of your bathroom, they create a focal point that elevates the state of your current space. Along with the chandelier itself, consider adding subtle floor lights. These lights may be installed in your subfloor or near the base of your walls. Why consider floor lighting? Because they radiate a warm and inviting feel whenever someone walks inside the space.
A luxury bathtub
Along with a new shower, consider adding a luxurious bathtub. Luxury bathtubs are defined by their size, shape and positioning inside the bathroom space. To get this look right, you need a larger tub that's made from a high-end material such as cast iron.
Cast iron is heavy, durable and stylish. It also keeps the water warmer for longer, meaning that you can spend hours in the tub after a long week of work. You can also use many different types of finishes and fixtures to complete the bathtub's look.
A painting or sculpture
In many ways, the bathroom is a getaway right inside your home. It may be the only time you get a few minutes for reflection, relaxation and comfort. Therefore, consider adding a reflective or meditative addition, such as a painting or sculpture.
The sculpture should be conspicuous enough to spark a calm and reflective mood anytime you walk in. Homeowners use statues, stones, wallpaper and many other similar materials to achieve their intended goal.
Larger windows for natural light
The mistake that many homeowners make is to darken the bathroom space. They may do this by installing small windows or thick curtains that don't allow enough light to pass through.
Consider installing larger windows to dip your bathroom in natural light. Such light is uplifting, comforting and healthier than artificial lighting.
