As the world spins faster and we get busier and busier in our lives, it is increasingly more important for our homes to become the soothing retreats we need to unwind.
There’s no place where that is more important than in the first place you see in the morning and the last place you visit at night: the master bathroom.
Whether it’s adding beautiful vanities that look as much like stunning furniture as sinks, or making sure the lighting is just right, the little things can help ensure that this all-important room feels like an oasis.
While we can’t create a view, we can make the most of it in our bathrooms, focusing on maximizing light through the windows and situating our baths on the most private ends of our homes.
There is nothing quite as relaxing as a steam shower in the privacy of your own master bathroom. This luxury is getting easier and easier to install.
Soaking tubs are another easy bathroom staple that can truly make you feel like you’ve had a relaxing spa day in the comfort of your own home.
Simple elements from the outdoors can make your bath feel soothing and calmer. Just a few fresh flowers or a simple plant are the perfect addition.
Natural materials like stone, marble or granite also lend that organic natural feel to a bath that add to the soothing appeal.
If a water view is in your life, that’s just a bonus!
We love mixing natural, more expensive materials like marble with less expensive, easy-to-use materials like subway tile. Gray grout adds a custom look.
Of course, not every soothing master bathroom retreat needs to look the same. This wooden ceiling adds depth and another layer of organic appeal to this space.
