New Year, new home: get inspired with custom bathroom remodel designs

By Scott Murfey

With a new year on it’s way, now is the perfect time to get inspired ideas for healthier, happier, more vibrant living. Bring serenity and beauty into your life by taking time to relax from the pressures of daily life – and consider incorporating that same serenity into your home through custom

bathroom remodel designs

  1. Turn the master bath into a sanctuary, a retreat from the world distinguished with health-boosting amenities, streamlined appliances, open spaces, cozy accents and elements from nature. From little luxuries like towel warmers and heated toilet seats for the winter months to architectural innovations like steam rooms, European frameless showers and radiant heated floors, today’s bathroom remodeling trends are all about optimal aesthetics, added comfort and a refreshing escape from the mundane.

Full-scale remodeling: transform your space for a spa-like experience

Think of the health benefits we reap every time we get away for a much-deserved vacation: the slower pace of life, soothing sounds of running water, sunshine, warmth, spas and saunas…all wrapped up with the trappings of a elegant resort. Now imagine bringing that same elegance, relaxation, light and warmth into your own master bathroom. With help from a talented and experienced contractor, you can create the ideal environment – one in which heat radiates from the floors for an all-around cozy feeling, while multiple windows and frameless glass showers create a sense of openness and make room for multiple shower valves. Add a specialty stand-alone bathtub for a sophisticated touch, or a steam room for ultimate relaxation and health after a long day at work. No matter which fixtures you choose, you can create a customized spa feel to suite your needs and tastes – and enjoy a mini-vacation any time you choose.

Small tweaks and finishing touches: elevate your style with color and texture

Whether you go for a full-scale remodel or a simple design spruce, there are plenty of ways to add custom style to your space. Homeowners looking for a distinctive textures and materials might consider concrete or marble countertops, teak or tile flooring and wall tile crafted from reclaimed glass or even subway tiles – a chic trend that lends the perfect backdrop for vintage fixtures. Add a furniture-inspired touch to bathroom walls with framed mirrors, or take advantage of the comfort-driven innovations with heated toilet seats and tankless water heaters. Finally, play with color: determine whether your personal spa bathroom looks best in white and chrome, earth tones and neutrals or shocks of bright color.
