Turn Your Bathroom Into A Luxe Spa With These Top Trends

by Mathew Thomas 10/01/2018

The bathroom is a room of sanctuary in the home. It is the one room where, for the most part, you can find cherished, quiet time all to yourself. Even if it means locking the door to keep the kids out for the best two minutes of your day.

Which is probably why creating a spa-like bathroom is a top trend at the moment. The best part about this trend is that it doesn’t have to be obviously trendy. It’s about subtle, minimalistic details that are both functional and visually appealing.   

For those looking to invest in renovating their bathroom with a nod to both current and future styles to come here are six spa-like features that are fully functional and will transcend time.  

A European-style walk-in shower is the epitome of a spa-like bathroom right now. Open any magazine or click through any Pinterest board and you would think this is the only style of shower available.

Not only does a walk-in style open up the room adding dynamic space but it is also incredibly functional. Especially if you plan to age in place. The walk-in showers lack a ledge or lip is ideal for those with limited mobility. So whether it be from age or a wild new move at your dance class you won’t have to worry about tripping.

A popular addition to the walk-in shower is a shower bench. Typically, tiled to match the rest of the shower area it offers a space to relax and the option to slow down and enjoy your You time. Wooden shower benches are another popular option cropping up in the pages of editorial spreads everywhere. A shower bench is also another great feature to have for future planning and certainly more stylish than those plastic chairs.

Due to the style of a walk-in shower, many homeowners are skipping having the addition of a tub altogether. Many people have found that after investing in a luxurious deep soak tub they just don’t make the time to use it. However, those who do enjoy a good soak opt for a free-standing tub. This separation of shower and tub allows for the tub itself to take a spotlight and emphasize the luxurious nature of your bathroom.

Another old favorite being ushered out is the medicine cabinet. Instead, homeowners are installing a large mirror that is a work of art and statement piece. The most popular shape of the moment is the circle. You may find that your new home already comes with a builder-grade mirror that just needs some creative details to spruce it up. Add trim board in your color and finish of choice to give it a whole new lease on life.
