Take a Vacation in Your Own Home.
Your bathroom is your place to escape from it all – or, at least, it should be. When it comes to designing bathrooms, a lot of people opt for the beach theme. Beach themes are very common no matter how far inland you live. But this article isn’t about that kind of bathroom. This article is about a true spa-like place that you can really relax in. The kind of bathroom you won’t want to leave. The kind of bathroom that you’ll want to hang the “do not disturb” sign on the locked door.
First, visualize the things you’d like to have in your bathroom and make a list of them. You’ll want to share this list with the professionals at S&W Cabinets who will bring the dream to life for you. By doing this, you can be sure you’ll achieve your ultimate relaxation space and know your bathroom will be exactly like you want it to be.
DEFINE YOUR PERSONAL IDEA OF RELAXATION
For some, cool tones evoke feelings of calm and cleanliness. While others prefer warm tones that make them feel cozy and at-home. Some people are all about minimalism, which can definitely help reduce stimuli and stress, while others love a richness in details that can bring other emotions to life for them. There is no wrong way to build your personal bathroom get-away, but it is important to define your vision before proceeding. Pinterest is a great place to get some ideas. The more materials and reference photos you have, the more it helps your professionals understand your vision. With a better level of understanding comes an easier time transforming your space into your private getaway.
If any aspect of the vision is going to be a struggle, realize that there is more than likely a number of workarounds – some of which you may love more than the original idea! No matter what the case is, the details can be tweaked and changed, but you should always feel confident and in love with the big picture and final product.
When it comes to great bathroom designs, the inspiration is endless. Data even shows that the quality of your bathroom has an effect on your home’s overall value too. Despite being one of the smaller rooms, bathrooms require equal, if not more design power when compared to larger spaces in your home. From paint color to fittings, vanities and lighting, the list of factors to consider will multiply before you can say “bubble bath.”
Most people feel that the tub plays the most important roll in the ultimate bathroom. With so many options to choose from these days, you shouldn’t have a problem finding what you want. A tub with lots of room to relax and a few heated jets would be the perfect end to a tiresome day. Or maybe you’d like a free-standing extra deep soaking tub? Your choices are only limited to your budget and imagination.
If you have room for a separate shower, great! If not, you can still add that touch of “spa” with a jets in the wall. A more affordable option is a jetted Shower Tower, like this one from Anzzi.
There a a lot of different designs and options out there!
And let’s not forget about all of the extra little things you’ll have to have for pampering yourself, like soaps, scrubs, candles, lotions, etc. You’ll also need a pretty basket to put it all in and set close to your tub as well.
Now let’s talk about bathroom vanities. Will you want a single bowl or a double bowl? If you have the space go for as much countertop as you can. You can even opt for a floating vanity. These mount directly on the wall leaving you room underneath for anything you’d like, or nothing at all for a clean, modern look. Talk to S&W Cabinets about a custom vanity to fit your style and space.
And let’s not forget about storage. You’ll want some nice cabinets and/or a pantry to keep everything neat and out of site. Shelving adds a nice touch for setting out spa-like items.
