Primary Bath Remodels We Love
If you are ready to tackle primary bath remodels this year, you are in for a fun project. There are so many great features to include in ensuites these days that offer beauty and functionality.
Whether you are inspired by a spa feel with fresh eucalyptus and contemporary finishes like bright white and chrome fixtures, or far-away styles including bold colors and patterns, there are tons of stunning options for a primary bathroom remodel. You can create a design you will love seeing every day, all it takes is some time and imagination!
Before you freshen up the place you go to freshen up, check out what we like to see in the owner’s suite!
Quality Water Features
Primary bath remodels almost always require a soaking tub. They are a statement piece and come in so many styles that ensure you can find one you absolutely love. Consider making your soaker tub the focal point of the room by adding a chandelier or light fixture of your liking overhead.
Take a look at the photo above to see how you can upgrade the look of your current built-in tub if a new free-standing tub isn’t within budget. Custom details like millwork and art on your walls can take an outdated design and bring it right up to today’s trend standards.
When everything is installed and ready to go, choose a small stool or tray to hold towels and bubble bath soaps, and “me time” is nearly ready to go. Just add a book or your favorite spa soundtrack, and a glass of wine of course!
With the soaker tub solidified, consider the other water features like sinks and showerheads. A primary bathroom is a place for relaxation and cleanliness, so make sure all your fixtures offer good water pressure and beauty as well.
The showerhead is another feature we love to spend extra time when choosing. The best ones are fashionable and have several functions. If you’re remodeling your shower, and space allows, splurge on the double showerhead. A primary bathroom remodel that includes a shower with two fixtures is highly valuable.
In the end, whether you select luxurious or simple fixtures, make sure they work for your lifestyle.
Consider Several Tile Shapes
Primary bathrooms typically have more space to work with and sometimes that can get overwhelming. Consider designating the specific areas for the shower, vanity, water closet with complementary tile work.
There is such a variety in tile and stone; you can narrow your selection to a color palette as a means to reduce the plethora of options. Then, determine the shapes you like, such as large rectangle tiles for the floor, penny tile for the shower floor, subway tile for the shower walls and water closet, and a medium hexagon tile around the vanity space.
Once you’ve decided the general color and shapes you like, your choices are much narrower and easier to finalize.
Your design can be bold with color and pattern, or simple and timeless. If you’re seeking to introduce some color, now is the time to consider mixing and matching! If you’re sold on a little blue in the vanity tops, why not try a patterned tile with blues and greens in the shower, for example?
Are these muted hues too basic for you? If jewel tones and drama are up your alley, your primary bathroom is a fantastic place to introduce classic luxurious colors and textures. From emerald greens to deep azure, royal purples, and jet black, you can glam up your bathroom for the ultimate wow-factor every time you enter the space.
The options are endless, so focus on your overall master bathroom remodel, choose a color palette and chances are, you can find several stunning tile options for your new design.
A bathroom is an intimate place, so creating a space you will love seeing every day is important. Imagine the things you like and consider incorporating into every aspect of the design - from color to wallpaper or tile patterns - before you make a final decision. Take a deep breath, dedicate time to choosing each feature and remember:
Research quality bathtubs and showerheads. Choosing the best models for your lifestyle can make the beginning or end of your day super relaxing.
Consider mixing and matching patterns in tile cuts, sizes, and colors to create texture and interest.
