The good thing about bathrooms is that most of them are small, and their small size gives the homeowner an excuse to splurge. Because of this, a breathtaking bathroom can give the impression that it cost far more to renovate than it did. Here are some tips on giving your bathroom a more luxurious look:
Glass Shower Doors
Few things say bathroom luxury better than glass shower doors. They make the room elegant, and, according to Desert Empire Mirror & Glass, they can create the illusion of a bigger bathroom. Glass shower doors can be framed, semi-framed or frameless. Framed shower doors have glass panes fitted into a metal frame that runs on a track. Frameless showers have a sophisticated, floating look, and semi-framed doors have metal around the structure that actually supports the door. Glass for these shower doors can be clear, pebbled, frosted, etched, hammered or have an interesting design that resembles raindrops.
Add More Lighting
In lots of bathrooms, there is a fixture in the middle of the ceiling and maybe Hollywood lights around the medicine chest mirror. This is fine, but according to House Plans Helper, there are many other lighting decisions you could make to transform your bathroom into the envy of the neighborhood. Consider an old-fashioned crystal chandelier or sunken lights arranged in the ceiling in a way that resembles a constellation or a grouping of stars. Make those lights around the medicine chest mirror dimmable or replace them with lights that mimic natural daylight if they are too yellow or too blue. If the bathroom doesn’t have a window, consider adding one if that’s possible. Few things beautify a bathroom like natural light.
Add Luxurious Fixtures
Though you might not be in the market for a solid gold toilet seat, don’t rule out gold faucets or even gold towel racks. In a space as small as a bathroom, they won’t cost as much as you think. Other things that can add a touch of luxury to the bath are a footed bathtub, a rainfall showerhead fitted with LED lights, and maybe even a shower stall with body jets or steam. Don’t be afraid to turn your bath into a five-star spa.
Floaty glass shower doors, beautiful lighting and deluxe fixtures can make your bathroom one of a kind that is no longer just utilitarian but rather a place you and your family and friends want to linger in.
