When homeowners call us about master bath remodeling, they’re often looking for a way to “remodel” busy lives. The stress and commotion of daily life can take a toll on your mood, energy, and health.

You’d love a place to get away from it all, even for just a bit. Your dream master bathroom might be like a den – equipped with fridge, wet bar and TV. Or you may prefer a quiet, spa-like atmosphere for meditation and renewal.

8 Ideas for Your Master Bath Remodeling Update

Room for two. Busy mornings are easier when you don’t have to wait for your turn in the bathroom. Enlarging the bathroom and adding a double vanity lets you both get ready in half the time. Including a separate “water closet” for the toilet is a popular option that offers additional privacy in a shared space.

Bigger showers. Roomy showers with glass walls and a place to add a bench are quickly becoming the norm. Modern fixtures offer digital controls and great performance without sacrificing water efficiency. Steam showers can give you a true spa experience in the comfort of your own home. If space is tight, you might consider adding a luxurious shower but doing away with the tub. We can find creative solutions for the most challenging room configurations.

Soaking tubs. If you have room to keep the tub, many homeowners are now opting for the serenity of a large soaking tub rather than a whirlpool tub.

New ventilation systems. From fans with humidity sensors to mirrors that defog automatically, today’s technologies create bathrooms that are more comfortable and lower maintenance, too. Adding a fan with a timer assures that you can clear moisture from the air completely without wasting electricity or having to remember to run back upstairs to turn the fan off.

Sun-filled spaces. Include skylights and windows that give you plenty of natural light, connect you with the outdoors, and save energy.

Green options. Eco-friendly and energy-efficient products are good for your health and your budget. Paint with no or low VOCs (volatile organic compounds), insulated windows, surfaces made with recycled content, tankless water heaters and new insulation materials are some of the many options to choose from. They can apply to any project regardless of bathroom size.

Luxurious warmth. As a part of your master bath remodeling, consider radiant heating for the floor. A towel warming drawer is another small extra that adds a great deal of pampering! But towels aren’t all you can warm in the drawer. Blankets, robes and slippers can also come out feeling delightfully toasty.

Creative cabinetry. Furniture-quality cabinetry looks elegant and can be completely at home in your master bathroom. To maintain an uncluttered spa-like feel, plan cabinets carefully to accommodate everything from small cosmetics to Costco-size packages.

A new master bath will put a smile on your face and reward you daily with peace and quiet, and perhaps better health. Plus, a smartly upgraded master bathroom is a sought-after feature and can deliver excellent ROI when it comes time to sell your home. We would be happy to help you take a look at what’s possible!
