Bathroom Remodeling for an Everyday Resort Spa Experience

Bathroom remodeling in Phoenix is a popular home improvement project for a fresh new look and feel. Homeowners want to bring home the luxurious spa like experience they have enjoyed at hotels to their everyday life.  An experienced home remodeling designer can add those details that will make your bathroom better than a resort’s!

An important element in the bathroom is lighting.  Overhead lights alone emphasizes wrinkles, and who wants that?   Lighting design includes planning for tasks such as shaving, relaxing, or even nocturnal visits.  Include natural lighting of the space for a glow that’s good for the eyes.

The technology for water conservation has made significant advances over the last few years.  There are low flow showerheads that strategically dispense large drops that maintain the water temperature while effectively rinsing off soap.  Water efficient toilets can get the job done with one flush.  Specify that you want your toilet and faucets to be Water Sense Certified.  It could save an average of 12,000 gallons of water a year, and that savings will add up as costs per gallon increase.

Avoid using the shower as a means to compensate for a cold bathroom. It is a waste of water that invites the growth of mold and mildew. Instead, add a low voltage radiant floor heating system on a timer to have your bathroom warm before you’re even out of bed!  If you don’t want to wait 30 minutes, a Tornado Body Dryer is easily installed and can pre-warm the space in minutes. After showering it will luxuriously wrap you in a blanket of warm air, offering a safe, easy means to dry off while it help rids the space of moisture.  If you want more pampering, request having a warming drawer for your bathrobe.

Many people don’t want to step into a tub to take a shower, and replace the tub shower combination with a walk in shower.  For a minimal grout lines or a grout less shower you can use granite, custom made quartz, and panels that look like granite for less cost.  There are attractive looking grab bars, and towel bars should be securely attached to the wall as well.

Plan for adequate storage. Have a medicine cabinet with an internal outlet for an electric toothbrush station.   Home studies have shown that it is rare when a couple want to use the bathroom sink at the same time.  It can be a big space saver and increase counter space to have one sink rather than two. Perhaps you’d rather have a coffee maker instead, so you can wake up to its aroma.

The bathroom is where we begin and end each day.  It is a sanctuary to counter the stresses of the day, and engage in self-care to refresh, renew, and rejuvenate.  A custom master bathroom remodel adds great value to your home experience. Gather pictures from Pinterest of what you want your bathroom remodeling results to look like.  Pictures are a great tool to communicate to your remodeling designer what you want.

Happy Home Remodeling!
