When remodeling your master bathroom, it is important not only to fashion the oasis you’ve always wanted but create something that will increase your resale value to your home as well.
There are many ways to create plush master bathroom designs by incorporating upgraded features while increasing the functionality and flow to your master bathroom.
Every Dream Begins with a Plan
Life experience and personal needs will determine your dreams for your ideal master bathroom. Spend time looking at master bathroom suites at open houses as well as learning of all the newest features and options at home shows, websites, television shows and expert design centers in your area. With this research, your dream will evolve into the perfect plan for your master bath.
Design the Layout and Flow
If your master bathroom doesn’t flow well or have enough room, a designer can help to re-create the flow and space of the bathroom. Once you determine your budget and upgraded features that are “must haves,” decide if all those elements will work in the master bathroom area or if the layout needs to be rearranged.
Benefits of a Two-sided Couple Bathroom
If you keep bumping into each other in your current bathroom, consider redesigning the area so that the shower unit is on one side of the bathroom with the tub on the other side. Also, split the double sinks to sit on both sides but at different ends of the room. This design can open up the space to give the illusion of more space and splitting the flow of traffic.
Specialized Equipment for your Master Bath
If you have special needs or wants, now is the time to add these into your dream bathroom. Features such as a walk-in hydrotherapy tub can help with chronic back pain or prevent falls from slipping as you get older. For a truly impressive remodel, and if you soak often, consider a floor level sunken tub that you can walk directly into. If you currently step into your tub to take a shower, consider separating the two or cutting out the tub all together and designing a large walk-in steam shower with multiple shower heads and a custom seating area.
Don’t Skimp on the Closet Design
Most master bathrooms incorporate the closet. Although yours may currently have his-and-her walk closets, it may be nice to include a dressing area with a place to sit while putting on shoes and additional storage such as built in drawers, organizers, and even a safe to store your personal items such as jewelry and valuables.
