If you have ever stayed in a luxury hotel with the addition of a luxurious bathroom, you know the feeling that it leaves you with, like you are staying in a spa.
If you are like most people, when you leave the luxury hotel, you may want to take a bit of that feeling home with you, drawing your attention to your own bathroom space. Even if you don’t have a large bathroom, you can still make it into an area that oozes luxury and allows you to truly relax when bathing or taking a shower.
What are some of the best ways to do this on a budget? Read on to find out!
Firstly, it’s worth looking at the fixtures you have in your bathroom.
Is your toilet working correctly? Are there potential issues with the faucets in the bath or the sink? If so, it’s well worth looking into plumbing companies in St. Louis before you get the paint out and begin the more specific aspects of decoration. A luxury bathroom is not going to be very luxurious if the toilet is not flushing and if the hot water tap releases cold water!
Upgrade The Lighting
One way to add a touch of luxury to your bathroom is to add lighting. Typically, it would be best if you aimed to install the lighting above the mirror. Depending on the look you are going for, you can opt for blingy lighting or minimalistic lighting.
It is important when choosing lighting for your bathroom to ensure that it matches the overall feel of the space. So, if you want to have many chandeliers placed above your vanity mirror, then make sure the rest of the bathroom follows suit, or it will just look odd!
Remember how soft those towels were when you stayed in that luxury hotel? It was like drying yourself with a cloud. There is no point in trying to recreate that at home if you have itchy, hard towels that are like drying yourself with sandpaper! Aim to have high-quality Egyptian cotton towels which are organic, fluffy, and oversized. This will help you to feel like you have just had a spa day when you get out of the bath.
Going back to the vanity mirrors or stands, it can be well worth making this a focal point of the room as it is the part of the bathroom that you will use the most. Try to have draws placed underneath it and consider the countertop material. If you can’t afford a quartz countertop, it’s well worth investing a little bit of money in having a quartz laminate placed instead, which will add an instant touch of class.
Finally, nobody wants to walk into the bathroom and smell the toilet. So, it can be worth considering scented candles and even scented soaps. They don’t have to be overly strong, but they can help you to feel more relaxed, especially if they are based on vanilla, lavender, or jasmine.
