Creating the perfect master bathroom is a delicate choice between what you want, what you really need and what you can afford. Here a few excellent tips on how you can make a beautiful, functional and cost-effective master bath:
If you have a small to mid-sized bathroom, putting in granite or marble flooring can be more affordable than you imagine. Not only does it make your master bath look cleaner, but it also adds to its luxurious appeal.
In-floor radiant heat is another thing you’ll appreciate in your master bathroom, especially on cold mornings. Moreover, it allows the space in the bathroom to get heated evenly.
A tub is one area where you can splurge to your heart’s content, especially if you and your partner enjoy relaxing baths in a wide luxurious tub with jets.
A tub mounted with elegant fixtures on its corners will allow bathers to face each other while taking a bath. Couples would definitely appreciate this added functionality. A heated backrest would also add to the comfort level immensely.
The best place to install a tub in your bathroom is underneath a window, where ample light will create a dynamic setting in your master bath. It would also provide you with space to keep a mug of tea or a glass of wine. Placing an armchair beside your tub will give you the place you need to keep your towels or drapes, while at the same time it would allow your partner to sit and catch up with you at the end of the day.
Modern master baths are designed with large showers in mind. A spacious clear-glass enclosure shower is elegant, and it is also very easy to clean. Opting for a walk-around shower designed with a partial wall and bench will create a more luxurious feel, while also making it more accessible for people with walking difficulties.
Countertop and Vanity
A long countertop with twin vanity bowls will aid immensely in cutting down the traffic congestion when both of you are getting ready for the day. If there is no space for two sinks, opting for one large sink with a big countertop can also be very effective.
Polished granite is the best suited material for your countertop, as it provides a magnificent appeal and is also less prone to scratches. Tile is also a great choice if you are planning to make your master bath look colorful and elegant.
A toilet with an elongated bowl and bidet function is extremely comfortable to use. Installing the toilet behind a half-wall will give you more privacy, while also making it easier to clean it afterwards.
Fixtures and Materials
When it comes to fixtures and materials, your choices are virtually endless. Choose fixtures and materials that complement the style of your master bath and the adjoining master bedroom. A bathroom professional might help you in choosing the right fixtures and materials depending on your overall budget.
Design and Style
Choosing the right design and style is very crucial to create a perfect master bath. Think wisely about each and every key element of your bathroom, and only decide on those that are absolutely necessary and add to the overall functionality of the bathroom. Likewise, styling options such as color scheme, lighting, mirrors and furniture should also be picked judiciously.
