Create a modern, beautiful retreat to pamper yourself

The following article “Spa Bath – Create a modern, beautiful retreat to pamper yourself” was written by Will Cole, President of Divine Renovation. It was printed in the Houston Chronicle on March 12, 2023 and posted online.

A spa bathroom is a luxurious addition to any home. Who wouldn’t want a relaxing and rejuvenating space for self-care and pampering. To create a modern spa bathroom, consider the following steps:

Choose calming colors for a spa like sanctuary, opt for neutral and soothing colors like white, grey, blue, and green. Colors influenced by nature add to the organic feel that a spa bathroom usually has.

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. Your designer can employ color matching when choosing your fixtures and bulbs to enhance the material colors in the room in order to get the ambiance you desire. Many wall mirrors have built in LED lighting with front and backlit options, dimmers and color changes.  Consider installing a lighting control system that you can control from an app on your phone.

Remember, the key to creating a modern spa bathroom is to focus on creating a calm and relaxing atmosphere, ensure your bathroom is clutter-free and well-organized by creating plenty of storage for a clean and serene environment.
