Creating a Spa-Like Master Bathroom

by Rachel Lyon, Direct from the Designers’ Assistant Editorial Director

It’s where you go as you start your day and as you wind down from it, so you might as well make your bathroom as comfortable as possible. The master bathroom has always been a more spacious, more luxurious part of the average home, but newer features previously available only in day spas are now attainable for residential settings. Why go out of your way to pamper yourself when you can make it a daily experience in your own home? Try upgrading your master bathroom to create a relaxing, rejuvenating space that will indulge you each and every day.

Bathroom faucets come in a wide variety of styles and finishes, so there are plenty of opportunities for you to pick out the best one for your needs. Striking modern designs as well as old-timey, traditional models are readily available with features that elevate your sink well beyond average in terms of style and usability. Consider wall-mounted faucets to open up the space around the basin and give you more sink options, from the typical undermount types to the chic countertop vessel sinks that are all the rage in modern spas.

Unwinding in a warm bath is one of life’s simplest pleasures. A whirlpool tub that combines the relaxation of heat and massage is a fantastic upgrade that will reward you every time you use it. Nowadays, these tubs are made with strategically placed jets to help give you a proper hydrotherapy session that simulates a professional massage. By helping to release tension and ease soreness, a whirlpool tub will increase your appreciation for baths and make you more likely to take advantage of their health benefits.

The Swash® toilet seats from Brondell® are easily installed on your existing toilet to instantly upgrade it to a luxurious washlet that keeps you clean and comfortable. Pictured is the Swash 1000 Bidet Seat.

A New Level of Personal Cleanliness

Washlets have been commonplace overseas for decades, but these advanced toilets are only just starting to take off in the United States. By adding a bidet to your toilet, you are able to wash every time you use the bathroom, which keeps you feeling fresh. This feature also helps reduce the amount of paper waste you produce, making it an eco-friendly option. But more than just being green, washlets come equipped with heated seats and warm air dryers, so they combine function with indulgence in a single fixture.

Warmboard Radiant Flooring

Radiant flooring from Warmboard® is a fantastic heating option that keeps the warmth where you need it without affecting your bathroom design. This efficient subfloor heating system can be put under your choice of flooring to keep you comfortable and in style.

Keep It Cozy

Imagine never again having to step onto cold tiles as you come out of a warm shower. Especially in the wintertime, the bathroom floor can be an unpleasant shock to your system; it doesn’t have to be that way. Install radiant heat panels under the floor to warm the room more evenly than other heating methods and keep your entire bathroom comfortable no matter where you are. Radiant flooring is energy efficient, doesn’t create drafts, and is easily zoned, so you can set each room to its own perfect temperature. With this technology, your master bathroom will be so comfortable that you will soon forget the annoyance of a cold floor, and the hassle of space heaters, and you’ll no longer be distracted from relaxation by the inconvenience.
