Incorporate natural materials like use wood, stone, and greenery into your project add to the spa-like atmosphere you want to create. An accessory like a teak wood bench next to your freestanding tub would add warmth and function to your space.
What’s a spa bath without an awesome shower? Include a rain shower head, handheld shower system and body jets for an even more luxurious showering experience. If space allows, make it a double shower and add a separate freestanding soaking or jetted tub.
If you have cold feet from tile or stone floors, add radiant heat for a warm and cozy feel underfoot.
There is a wide selection of modern bathroom fixtures for your bath remodel, including sink, bathtub and shower faucets in a variety of styles and finishes. If you plan to age-in-place in your home, fixtures such as touchless or lever faucets are easier to operate.
The use of lighting is a crucial aspect of interior design and can transform your renovation.
