Top 10 Things to Consider For Your Luxury Bathroom


The bathroom forms more of the intimate aspect of your home. It's your sanctuary; somewhere you can go to unwhind, relax and feel beautiful. This is the feel of the luxury bathroom. Think high ceilings, spa baths and gilded mirrors.

The practical functionality of the bathroom is not lost however, a bathroom can be one for all the family with a touch of luxury still present.

Home Stratesphere featured 127 luxury bathroom designs for you to peruse - there are some really great examples. Check out Chateau on Pinterest for some of our own luxury bathrooms.

Common to all of these fabulous examples in design are 10 features to keep in mind when building your own - in addition to the obvious 'price factor'. Luxury bathroom features to consider include:

    1.  Tub: Claw, free-standing, sunken, jacuzzi-style, regular, medical, etc. Perhaps you prefer to just have a shower? Most luxury bathrooms tend to feature both a bathtub and shower

    2.   Shower: Separate from tub/or combined, all-glass or open, premium fixtures such as rain and side nozzles, tile or a fully
          encased shower, etc
    3.   Vanity: one, two or more sinks and mirrors, vanity design, materials, wood, colour, faucet, basin style, etc

    4.   Layout: Luxury bathrooms are getting larger and larger. Some are as big as traditional master bedrooms. How much space do
  you wish to dedicate to your bathroom? You definitely want to check out our gallery of bathrooms to see how larger bathrooms appear and whether it’s something you want

    5.   Lighting: Lighting can make or break a bathroom so be sure to research lighting options for your bathroom

    6.   Toilet: Enclosed in an interior room - again this tends to be more popular, location within the bathroom, color, flush features

    7.   Spa features: Sauna, steamroom/shower, hot tub

    8.   Windows: While it’s great to have natural light, it’s not so great to have the inside of your bathroom on display for your neighborhood. If you have extensive windows, you may require window coverings. Skylights can be a good lighting feature for bathrooms for privacy reasons

    9.   Mirrors:  Full-length or above vanity only?  If you have the wall space, a full length mirror can be very helpful unless you have a separate walk-in-closet/dressing room

   10.   Ventilation and natural light: Think about window placement & fans. Skylights can also make a beautiful feature
