Add Texture

Today’s tile comes in a variety of colors and textures. One of the newest looks is tile designed to look like wood. Design with “aged barn wood” to give your bath a comfortable, rustic feel. The gray tones can also lend to a modern, clean aesthetic.

Colored Commode

Today’s toilets are designed with bathroom style in mind. Choose from a variety of styles and colors to suit any color palette and design aesthetic.

Add Bling

Fixtures are the jewels of the bathroom. Choose a style and finish to add bling to your spa-like bath. Make sure your fixtures stand out with sparkling chrome, satin nickel or even copper.

Light Things Up

Layer the lighting in your spa-like bathroom, and use dimmers to create exactly the relaxing space you’re looking for at the end of a hard day. Be sure to include task lighting for when you’re getting ready to go out on the town. Side lights by the mirror keep shadows off your face.

Have a Seat

If your bathroom size permits, add a seating area for some post-bath relaxing. It’s a perfect addition to a dressing area, too. A plush chair with a side table and soft lighting is a great addition to any bath and dressing space.

Just Add Heat

A fireplace might be considered a luxury item for the bathroom. But if your goal is to create a spa feel, the warmth of a fire is a great addition to the space. It will heat up the space for added comfort and the blend of fire and water is divine.

Zen Soaking

Achieve a spa-like feel with a subtle Asian influence. Clean lines, a deep soaking tub and a soft color palette creates a Zen atmosphere for a serene soaking experience. Include space for sweetly scented candles near the bath for the ultimate spa feel.

Go Glam

Add some glamour to your bath with a well-placed chandelier. Above the tub offers space for an oversized, ornate fixture. Or consider smaller chandeliers near the vanity to add sparkle.

Miles of Tiles

Floor-to-ceiling tile is a great option for the wet spaces in your bathroom. But the look is expanding outside the shower. Tile is a great way to add color and texture to the room. Glossy, bottle-green tile create a tranquil feel for your spa-like bathroom.
