Bathroom Remodeling Ideas for a Spa-Like Retreat

Do you dream of creating a primary bathroom with all the amenities of your favorite spa? You might need a little inspiration to bring your vision to life. In addition to using the colors and materials that suit your tastes, consider including these high-end features in your bathroom remodel to transform it into a spa-like retreat.

Heated Tile Floors

Radiant heating is a method of warming your home via infrared radiation. It’s the effect you feel when you place your hand near a hot stovetop burner. When your bathroom floor is fitted with radiant heating under the tiles, you’ll never experience cold toes stepping out of the bath ever again.

It’s possible to install radiant heating throughout your entire home, but the bathroom is the most desirable location to create warmth underfoot. Add this feature during your bathroom renovation to make it feel like a spa.

Free-Standing Tub

Frameless glass shower enclosures are far classier than vinyl shower/tub combos, so you may be looking to make an upgrade. But what if you also enjoy the occasional long soak after a hard day’s work? If you have the square footage, a free-standing tub is a wonderful addition to your remodeled bathroom.

The distinctive style of a free-standing tub definitely turns heads when friends and family walk into your bathroom. It’s also the perfect opportunity to install a Jacuzzi with relaxing jets. Nothing says “spa” like a gentle massage from your jetted free-standing tub.

Natural & Artificial Lighting

If your bathroom is on an exterior wall, seriously consider putting in a window or two. Bathrooms on the upper floor of your home can also have skylights. Allowing natural light to flood your bathroom is incredibly therapeutic. Remember, you can always install frosted glass or window coverings, or you can position the window high on the wall if privacy is a concern.

Of course, you also need artificial lighting in your bathroom. Why stick with traditional options when you can upgrade to candelabra wall sconces and a stunning chandelier? You’ll enjoy the spa treatment every day with these types of lavish fixtures.

Built-In Shower Seat & Wall Niches

The shower seat provides a place to sit and relax while you wash or to set items temporarily. Wall niches also offer a convenient, built-in place to store your toiletries.

Dual Rainfall Showerheads

A luxurious rainfall showerhead is a must for creating a spa-like retreat. This fixture gently showers you with a wide stream of water coming from directly overhead. If you share your primary bathroom with a partner, you may be pining for a more spacious shower. Dual rainfall showerheads might be the perfect solution.

Fireplace & TV

Who says fireplaces are reserved for the living room or den? For the ultimate space heater, consider adding this feature to your bathroom. You’ll love soaking in the tub while listening to the gently crackling flames — not to mention stepping out of the bath to the warm embrace of a comforting fireplace.

Then, get even more out of your bathroom with a TV mounted to the wall. Listen to background noise while you get ready for bed, jump on the latest news headlines as you primp in the morning, or catch up on your favorite show while you lounge in the tub. Including a fireplace and TV in your luxurious new primary bathroom creates the unmistakable feeling of being in an authentic spa.
