Luxurious Bathroom Upgrades For Your Remodel

When you're undergoing a bathroom remodel, it's usually time to make a few upgrades. Choosing a better quality of materials is a good start. However, at the conclusion of your remodel you also want your bathroom routine to have received an upgrade. Choose a little bathroom luxury during your remodeling job. 

Radiant Heat Flooring

No one likes to get out of the bath or shower onto a cold floor. A radiant heat system serves as a solution not only to cold toes but to a cold bathroom. Radiant heat comes in one of two systems – either electrical or hot water. The quicker solution is having electrical wires installed under the floor, but this can get expensive over time. Having plumbing for hot water installed takes more time up front but can be more cost-effective long-term according to This Old House.

Copper Soaking Tub

Soaking in a tub is making a resurgence as a relaxation option. Freestanding tubs come in numerous styles, but a Japanese-style copper tub is a beautiful addition to the bathroom. Copper bathtubs are usually hand-crafted. The material's natural patina further adds beauty to your décor. In addition to the deep Japanese style, copper tubs also come in a double slipper design.

Infinity Tub

If your bathroom features windows with a fantastic view, an infinity tub is an excellent option. Just like infinity swimming pools, infinity bathtubs present a profile that disappears into forever thanks to overlapping water. The tubs are constructed with a receptacle that catches the overlapping water and cycles it back into the main tub. Infinity bathtubs can be freestanding with a custom surround or dropped into the floor.

Multiple Spray Shower

Soaking is not the only way to upgrade your bathroom experience. Multi-spray showers are becoming more and more popular in bathroom design. There's no need to choose a favorite shower style when you can have several installed – rainfall, massage, hand-held, traditional. Multi-sprays come in pre-made spa panels, or you can customize your choices with your contractor.

Sensory Shower

A truly luxurious upgrade is the sensory shower. This installation produces a combination of rainfall showering with light, fragrance, and even fog. The chromotherapy is similar to what you experience with lights in a bathtub though some models allow you to program a light show. The goal is to recreate the ultimate outdoor bathing experience. Such showers even come in a horizontal option, allowing you to recline while showering.

A bathroom remodeling affords you the opportunity to add the little luxuries, such as radiant heat flooring or a multi-spray shower, as well as deluxe upgrades, such as an infinity tub or sensory shower.

About Me

Don't Let Your Basement Become Wasted Space

My wife and I recently had a new home built, and while we had few stressful decisions to make, we greatly enjoyed the process and love our new home. Due to budget concerns, we decided to leave our basement unfinished at first. We figured that since we have so much "stuff" that we need to store, like off-season clothing and seasonal decorations, we would just use it for storage. However, we soon regretted not having it finished and felt like we had "wasted space" in our new house that wasn't being put to good use. We turned it into a "mini apartment" with its own entrance that we now rent out to a friend for a little extra income. I love sharing what we learned during the home building process, so I am excited to share our experiences and tips on our new blog! Come back for more construction tips!
