Your master bath is an important part of your daily routine. It should be more than just a place to shower before work; it should be your very own sanctuary to relax and unwind. It is also a space to indulge in your very own spa experience. Whether you’re getting ready for a remodel, or planning the layout of your new home, we put together a list of 6 must-have features for your dream master bathroom.

1) Storage Built for YOUR space

A place for everything and everything in its place is a good mantra for decluttering, but what if that space just doesn’t exist? Cabinets that are custom-designed for your room mean that you are maximizing your storage, and adding interior accessories to help you organize means that you’ll have specific spaces for things you use most often. Drawers with duplex outlets for hair dryers, clothed jewelry trays/dividers, rollout shelves, drawer dividers, hamper pull outs, trash pull outs and custom recessed medicine cabinets – the possibilities are endless. Consider open shelving, floating vanities, Customizing your master bathroom to fit your lifestyle needs, and you’ll end up with enough space for everything, set up in a way to make your space truly breathtaking.

2) Tile beyond the norm

Adding interest, color, or sparkle with your tile selection is an easy way to personalize your space. Custom mosaics can provide a unique look, and you don’t have to commit to a full wall; adding points of interest can make your tile something to look at, rather than look past. It can also be a great way to incorporate fun materials: here, we’ve used white Thassos marble and mirror for our walls.

3) Clever Lighting

A concern with a master bathroom is that you need to plan your lighting for all hours. Excellent general lighting is so important for getting ready in the morning; but at night, when all you want is to decompress, it’s more soothing to have indirect accent lighting. Adding all the necessary fixtures can be a challenge while keeping a serene environment; so we look for unobtrusive places, such as behind a mirror, to provide the best lighting at all hours.

4) Sleek, Clean Lines

Glass countertops, sleek lines and and a clean, clear space make your bathroom welcoming. Glass can be wonderful, since it’s incredibly durable, but it also brings a fresh feeling to your space. Playing off multiple other design choices without adding overwhelming detail can be a challenge, but using modern materials can provide a current look that is truly you.

5) Fun Hardware

Your hardware isn’t something that is top-of-mind for most people. And yet, it’s something you use every day, and see every time you enter the room. There are so many options available today that it would be a shame not to have fun with your choices: round, square or custom shaped, there’s something for everyone. And adding that little touch of whimsy can truly be the crowning touch to a unique space, tailor-made for you.

We have experience incorporating client requests such as zero-entry shower stalls with separate soaking tubs, touchless faucets, in-floor radiant heat and wall mounted heated towel racks into many of our projects.

6 ) Personal luxuries

The finishing touches to turn your master bathroom into your sanctuary. Radiant floor heating is is a top request for many of our clients. It’s value is immeasurable on a cold winter morning. A more even overall heat warms everything in the room, including surfaces, furnishings, and, most importantly, you. Heated towel bars are also an indulgence, but worth the investment. After all, who doesn’t enjoy being cloaked in warmth after a shower or bath?
