The average person will spend roughly 1.5 years of their life in their bathroom. If you have a luxury bathroom, this time might not feel like such a drag! Renovating your bathroom is one of the best things you can do to your house, not only for your own enjoyment but also for the value of your home. As luxury bathroom installers, we have put together a list of features that will give your bathroom that ‘je ne sais quoi’.
After a long, hard day, a soak in the tub might be just what you need. If you are used to cramped city flats with tiny shower rooms, a bathtub is going to feel like a luxury. Baths come in many shapes and sizes, copper tubs, corner tubs with massage jets, or reclaimed clawfoot tubs, whichever you choose, a bath is a necessity for any luxury bathroom.
We look to Europe for many of our luxury bathroom influences, none more so than the bidet. Bidets are often overlooked in British bathrooms, but they are one of the ultimate aspects of a luxury bathroom. They are also a great option if you are looking to improve your eco-friendliness, as they save so much toilet roll.
Even with radiators, bathrooms can still feel chilly in the winter months. To combat this, we often suggest underfloor heating to customers who are looking to achieve that luxury bathroom feel. Underfloor heating can be electric or gas and can distribute heat evenly around your bathroom.
Another thing that is often overlooked in bathroom design is the lighting. Many people chose bright overhead spotlights, that are great when you need illumination, but not so great if you are trying to relax and unwind. Getting dimmable lights in your bathroom is a great way to give it a luxury feel.
Finally, it’s all those finishing touches that are going to transform your space into a luxury bathroom. Think about accessories, art, and the colours you use for your fixtures and fittings. We suggest the ‘devil is in the detail’ approach when it comes to designing a luxury bathroom.
