Element #1 Double Sink

If you share a room with someone, then you probably have battled for sink space at one point in time. A double sink is an essential feature of every luxury bathroom that improves functionality, daily efficiency, and keeps messes separate. We recommend either under-mount sinks, which reduce the chance of grime buildup or artesian style bowls that look great in almost any style home.

Element #2Stand-alone tub

The shower is for every day, so make your bathtub experience something to look forward to for those special occasions. Free-standing tubs keep grime at bay and encourage you to stay in them longer. Add a little flair to your bathroom and consider buying a stand-alone tub. It can really make the room look unique and comes in many different colors and designs to complement the overall bathroom style.

Element #3 Curbless, Open Shower

Curbless showers are in demand and are a great way to free up usable square footage. It creates a visual wall which makes it seem like there is another section of the bathroom, giving you a sense of openness. If you aren’t a bath person (skip suggestion #2), rid of your porcelain tub-shower combination and go for an open, curbless shower. This feature offers a great return on investment (ROI).

Element # 4Luxury Countertop (& backsplash) Materials

Granite, Marble, Quartz, and concrete are all great options. These are ideal options because they are desirable, scream opulence, and lack grout lines (which makes cleaning a breeze). They will last a long time and yield a favorable ROI because they are timeless materials.

Element #5 Abundance of Storage

Whether you have a lot of square footage to work with or you only have a bit, incorporating storage is vitally important to any bathroom space. You don’t want to be running across the hall when your damp and wet to get a towel! Think about your storage needs. If you have multiple people using your bathroom, they under the sink cabinets might not be enough and you may want to opt for something like shown in the picture to the right. You can either have a storage closet without doors that keep your towels on displays on display and easy to reach or add stylish french doors to keep your items private.

Element #6Personalized Lighting

Add lighting to your desire! One light stuck to the ceiling might not be enough to properly see and function at night. More lights help you get ready! When you add lights near the mirror, it reflects the rays to brighten up your face to prepare you for your day/nighttime routine. Add strips of mini lights to the edges of the ceiling that are easy to control to create create a unique ambiance programmable for any mood.

Element # 7 Wood Accents

A recent trend in bathroom interior design is a return to nature. Adding plants and wood accents brings a calming atmosphere to any bathing space. Woods like maple or walnut add durability and can be coated to prevent water damage.

Element #8Strong Ventilation

Most modern bathrooms have a source of mechanical ventilation that is important for humidity control and rid of unwanted smells. Ventilation power is measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM). You’ll want one CFM per square foot of bathroom space, so a 50 CFM powered ventilator equates to a 50 square foot room. Proper ventilation prolongs the usability of your bathroom fixtures and helps paint looking fresh longer.

Element #9 Radiant-Heat Flooring

We have all experienced it at some point: a cold winter morning and you step out of the hot shower onto the stone-cold tile. Brrr feels like Antarctica sometimes. With radiant-heat flooring, you’ll never have to worry about this problem again! Radiant heating works on a variety of flooring so (most likely), the type of flooring you choose will not impact its usability.

Element #10Window with a View/Natural Light

Depending on where you live, adding or expanding your window space is a good feature to consider. If you are extremely private or live near a walkway or neighbors, you can think about installing a skylight. Windows tend to add value to your home and allow for fresh air to flow through, which is important for bathrooms to prevent mildew/mold. Skylights allow the sky above to brighten up your bathing space, adding a sense of openness. Best of all, window elements can reduce the need for electrical lighting, lowering utility costs.

Element #11 Add Technology

Technology has become a part of our everyday life. You can either embrace it in the bathroom to make life a little easier or avoid it to take a break. You can program speakers into your shower, add Bluetooth controlled jets to your bathtub, or go for something simple, yet effective like a heated towel rack.
