Who says you have to pack up and travel to get away from it all? Why not create your own get away that beckons you home after a long stressful day? Here a few ideas to create a spa-like master bath that can rival the most exclusive resorts out there. Even better, it’s private and you don’t need a reservation. By incorporating spacious showers, luxurious textures and with a little design savvy – you can create your very own master bathroom oasis.
- Organization is essential! You don’t want to see the clutter of everyday like when you’re trying to FORGET everyday life in your oasis. Built in cabinetry featuring his and hers vanities are a great way to ensure you have a place for everything. One more thing; no glass fronted cabinet doors in the bathroom – unless you want to not only have a clean and clutter free bathroom but also clean and clutter free storage. (That sounds like a LOT of work.)
- Spacious Showers with glass walls make the bathroom seem larger by not compartmentalizing the space. Take your shower up a notch by installing multiple showerheads. Short on space? Install one of the “water fall” shower heads that are mounted to the ceiling that allow the water to cascade over you.
- What would a spa be without a whirlpool? After a long day a jetted tub can be just what you need to unwind. Event better, you can find jetted pedestal tubs these days, which incorporate the luxury of a whirlpool with the vintage aesthetics of a pedestal tub!
- Lighting can turn a cold, boring bathroom in a tranquil Zen inspiring getaway in an instant. Can’t afford to replace all the fixtures? Simply swap the bulbs to a lower wattage and install a dimmer switch.
- Color is key when creating your personal oasis. Light walls will create the illusion of a larger space while darker walls will feel cozy. Blues, aquas and whites evoke a pristine even beachy atmosphere while browns, coppers and earth tones create warm rustic feel.
- Luxurious textures and small details are what move you from a nice bathroom to a personal oasis. Love to travel? Hang framed photos of your adventures and fondest memories. Avid reader? Have a little bookshelf with some of your favorite titles close at hand when you’re soaking in the tub.
Master Bathrooms aren’t what they used to be. And with a little ambition and attention to detail you can capture that relaxed, refreshed, “I just left a spa” feel every day with your very own master bath oasis.
