Creating a Spa Like Master Bath

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. 

What are your favorite elements of a spa-like bathroom?

Things We Love: Subway Tile

As we all know, sometimes the simplest things can be the most beautiful.

One of our favorite, simple statement-makers? Subway tile, of course!

When we’re working on a renovation, so many things are pulling on our heartstrings–and our purse strings!

When it comes to the kitchen, in particular, it’s easy to get a little overwhelmed–or more than a little over budget!

Fortunately, subway tile is a way to keep both in check. Not only is it a stunning no-brainer for any space, but subway tile is also an affordable alternative to marble or other natural stones that might be fighting to be our backsplash choice. (Although we love them too!)

One of our most favorite subway tile tricks that makes it look not only unique but also much more expensive, it playing with the grout color. We’re huge fans of gray grout, especially in a kitchen like this where it highlights the color of the cabinets. Plus, it doesn’t get dirty!

But white grout lends a gorgeous clean look.

With subway tile, you really can’t go wrong!

Another perk to subway tile? It’s so easy to clean! Just spray and wipe with any old cleanser.

To a sensational sheen, we love subway tile any old way. Are you a subway tile fan? Or do you prefer a different kind of backsplash?
