Within the house the kitchen and the living room is where you will spent most of your time, the bedroom is your relaxing space, to sleep and recharge and the bathroom is your sanctuary, the place where you relax, cleanse and make yourself beautiful. Given the bathroom’s sanctuary status it makes sense to invest in some luxurious touches when re-decorating your bathroom and here are some ideas to create the ultimate luxury bathroom.
Regardless of whether you prefer showers or baths, adding a steam shower to your bathroom is sure to please everyone. Steam showers differ from the conventional variety by allowing the steam to build up within a sealed chamber through a humidifier that creates water vapour. The shower aides the body by opening up all the pores and allowing the dirt to leave. The presence of the steam in the shower also helps to relax strained muscles, clear out the airways and lungs which is particularly handy if you have a common cold and the heat that it generates will warm you up and make you feel fully refreshed afterwards.
There is nothing worse than waking up on a cold winter morning and stepping into a freezing cold bathroom. To avoid this perilous situation you should invest in a heated floor when you re-decorate. Heated floor solutions using special materials for the floor and underneath which sits either an intricate network of electrical wires or a network of small water pipes which pump warm water around the floor. The sensation of walking bare-foot on a heated floor feels amazing and even more so after you wake up on that cold winter morning.
Heated Towel Racks
Most bathrooms have radiators in them for obvious reasons and when you create your bathroom you should opt for a slightly different variation on the traditional heating system. Heated towel rails are very similar to radiators except with sleeker designs that are created with the aim of heating the room and providing a warm place to keep your towels. The feeling of a warm towel around your body after a bath or shower is like a hug and for a practical point of view, the towel will dry far quicker on the heated rack. Radiators are a thing of the past in the bathroom and a heated towel rack has taken over.
If you have the space to play with then a free-standing bathtub should be at the top of your list for additions to your new bathroom. Generally speaking the bathtub in most conventional bathrooms is connected to the wall for space-saving reasons, the only problems that these baths present is that they are rarely deep or long enough. A free-standing bath sits on four legs and are usually beautifully designed with ergonomics in mind and are deep enough and long enough for anyone to enjoy. Not only do these baths have practical purposes but they look stunning in the middle of your bathroom and when you are inside them you will feel a better sense of tranquility because of the space that you have all around you as opposed to a wall on one side and space on the other. The height of luxury, comfort and relaxation is a free-standing bath and I implore you to get your hands on one.
