7 Spa-Worthy Bathroom Indulgences You’ll Love

If luxuriating in spa-like accommodations is your idea of the perfect day, then you’re going  to love our top picks for best bathroom indulgences. 

Read on to learn which splurges we recommend you add to your bathroom for the  ultimate in pampering. 

1. Heated Floor

Imagine being able to wake up on a cold December morning, walk into your bathroom, and  experience the cozy warmth of heated flooring. Fabulous, right.

We agree. That’s why many homeowners view radiant heat flooring as essential when  remodeling their bathrooms. And not only is heated flooring super-luxurious, but it’s also  something buyers really appreciate when you go to sell your house.

Perhaps best of all, heated flooring can be set with a programmable timer. So, you’ll never  have to wait for the floor to heat up. Instead, you can wake up to a warm floor every  morning, then set the heat to go off a few hours later.

Because ceramic, porcelain, and natural stone tiles retain heat really well, your bathroom  will stay warm long after the timer goes off, possibly even saving you money on your  heating bill.

2. Large Skylight

With a large skylight, your bathroom will never seem too dim. Instead, it’ll be flooded with  natural light, giving the room perfect ambience. This holds true even if your bathroom  already has plenty of windows—after all, there’s no such thing as too much natural light! 
Plus, the beauty of a skylight is that it can be situated in a number of different places,  depending on the focal point of your bathroom. For instance, you might opt to place the  skylight over a shower or bathtub, so you can let the light streaming down draw people’s  gaze.
A final benefit of a large skylight is that it’ll give you leeway to “play” when you’re  designing your bathroom. Meaning you’ll be able to creatively use more subtle textures,  since
there will be enough light to make them noticeable.

3. Rainfall Smart Shower

With a rainfall smart shower, you’ll experience the latest and greatest in showering technology. Envision yourself underneath a rainfall showerhead, water gently misting down while you luxuriate in a spa-like experience.

And that’s just the rainfall part! The “smart” part of the shower means you’ll be able to control the water temperature and flow with the touch of a button.

Plus, with really high-end showers, you can also enjoy stuff like directional water jets, soothing music, aromatherapy, and colored lighting.

Talk about lavish!

4. Recessed Lighting

The best spas in the world use recessed spotlights to create a tranquil, soothing  environment. By strategically placing your own recessed spotlights, you can follow their  lead, giving your bathroom a soft, warm glow. 

You can also use recessed directional lighting to draw attention to focal points in the  bathroom. For instance, many homeowners place recessed dimmable lighting over their  tubs.

Not only can lighting draw the eye to a beautiful soaking tub, but it also creates a more  luxurious, romantic setting. 

5. Soaking Tub

Speaking of beautiful soaking tubs, they’re the latest homeowner must-have. While once upon a time, there was a trend toward big whirlpool tubs with jets, nowadays, homeowners are increasingly opting for soaking tubs.

Soaking tubs are stand-alone tubs that are deeper and more comfortable than traditional tubs.  In recent years, they’ve grown in popularity, because they’re great for creating a contemporary, minimalist look.

Since they’re available in a variety of materials—like copper, marble, and stone—soaking tubs can go a long way toward creating a Zen-like oasis.

Plus, the most luxurious soaking tubs offer amenities like mood lighting, built-in candle holders, and racks for books. But what if you miss the thought of a whirlpool? The good news is that you may find you enjoy a soaking tub even more.

That’s because you don’t need to forego a massage with a soaking tub. Many of them come with air-powered jet massagers. The massagers pull air in, heat it up, then use it to blow millions of bubbles into the tub. It’s a gentler experience than one you’d have with a whirlpool bath, but every bit as enjoyable.

6. Sauna

Imagine hopping in your sauna after a long day at work, a tough workout, or on a particularly stressful day. Sounds awesome right?

We agree … there are few things more indulgent than lounging in your very own sauna. And, according to LIVESTRONG, “chilling” in a sauna is a great way to relax muscles, revitalize skin, improve circulation, and alleviate stress.

So, if you want to take your bathroom from so-so to sumptuous, a sauna is the way to go!

7. Bathroom Fireplace

Sure, you can turn your bathroom into a nice retreat with a good book, a glass of wine, and plenty of bubbles … add a fireplace though, and you’ve taken the coziness factor from just ducky to oh-so-decadent.

Just imagine a bathroom fireplace in your Tahoe home. With all the wintery days we get here, there are few things that sound nicer than watching the snow fall while you relax in a bubble bath with the flickering light of a warm fire nearby.

And if you really want to amp up the ambience, we suggest installing a double-sided fireplace in the wall between your bathroom and bedroom. Then you can enjoy the beautiful glow of a fire from either room.

No matter where you end up putting your fireplace, it’s safe to say this is one spa-worthy amenity you won’t regret!
