If you are preparing for a bathroom remodel, you probably have a long list of luxury upgrades you hope to add to the space. When the remodel is complete, you want it to feel like you’re walking through a high-end hotel or beautiful spa retreat. However, you may struggle to plan these luxury upgrades and might not know what upgrades are the best for this space.
There are many upgrades you should consider when planning your bathroom remodel, and our team at Surface Bella has compiled a list of several of the best upgrades, some of which you may not have thought of before. If you want the most luxurious home bathroom, keep reading to learn about the upgrade we recommend you make for your space.
1. Get A Stand-Alone Tub
Freestanding tubs are one of the best luxury upgrades you can make to your bathroom. For many, these tubs are seen as a high-end upgrade and have quickly climbed the list of homeowner must-haves during the buying process. If you are looking for a bathroom that has a spa-like feel, a stand-alone tub does a great job of portraying that.
While this might not sound like a good investment if you don’t take a lot of baths, a freestanding tub may also make your space feel larger because it isn’t attached to the wall or shower in your bathroom. With so many different freestanding bathtubs on the market, we are certain there is a tub that will match your desired bathroom aesthetic.
2. Invest In A Heated Towel Rack
Warm towels after getting out of a warm shower or bath make your bathroom feel like the ultimate cozy space. If you are looking for luxury upgrades and want to increase the comfort you feel in this often cooler space in your home, consider investing in a heated towel rack. If you’re still on the fence about heated towel racks, though, there are more benefits than warm towels. It isn’t uncommon for bacteria to grow on your bathroom towels.
In fact, a study out of the University of Arizona found that over 90% of bathroom towels contain coliform bacteria responsible for stomach aches and gastrointestinal diseases. A heated towel rack can help prevent the growth of bacteria on your towels between use by warming them and allowing them to dry more quickly. To prevent the spread of this bacteria, heated towel racks should be at the top of your list of luxury upgrades.
3. Increase Your Storage Space
One major complaint many people have about their bathroom is that it doesn’t have quite enough storage space to accommodate all of their belongings. If you are investing in luxury upgrades, consider adding more storage space to fit your belongings and to keep household items, like cleaning supplies and extra toiletries, out of sight.
You may want to consider adding more cabinet space or cutting out some space to add a small closet in your bathroom in order to increase your storage. This added storage space is especially useful if the bathroom is shared by several people. By adding more storage space to your bathroom, you guarantee everything has its own space and doesn’t get knocked around by your everyday use of the space.
4. Upgrade Your Toilet
While there are many luxury upgrades you can make to your bathroom, your toilet likely isn’t high on that list. But there are many upgrades you can make to your toilet that aid in creating this beautiful, improved bathroom space. While some of the benefits of upgrading your toilet may include the appearance of your bathroom, there is more to it than that.
An upgraded toilet may be more efficient than an older model. If you are looking for worthwhile luxury upgrades, your new toilet can save you money on your water bill, as well as improve the flushing system and removal of debris. While this might not seem like the most luxurious upgrade on our list, it is certainly well worth the investment.
5. Add A Second Sink
If you are tired of having to wait for your turn in front of the bathroom sink while getting ready in the morning, you should consider adding a second sink to your vanity. Whether you are adding a sink to the bathroom in your home’s primary suite or a shared children’s bathroom, two sinks will always be beneficial for anyone using them.
Not only does a second sink improve the time spent in the bathroom, allowing its users to spend less time waiting, but it may also increase counter space. Dual sinks are also high on the list of luxury upgrades homebuyers are looking for in bathrooms, helping to improve the value of your bathroom remodel.
6. Add A Shower Bench
Having somewhere to sit while showering is a great investment to make for your bathroom remodel for everyone. Whether the people using your shower have disabilities that make standing for extended periods of time uncomfortable, or you are simply looking for somewhere to sit while shaving your legs or washing your body, a shower bench is a great upgrade.
If you are investing in luxury upgrades, you want them to be something you can get used out of as often as possible. By adding a shower bench to your shower, you almost certainly guarantee that you will get your money’s worth out of this upgrade.
7. Get Better Lighting
When thinking about luxury upgrades in your bathroom, you probably aren’t thinking about new lighting fixtures. But, you may find that you dislike your bathroom lighting when you start to consider this upgrade. Whether you’re looking for new ceiling lights or improved vanity lighting, better lights can greatly improve the appearance of your bathroom.
Unfortunately, some builder-grade lighting may leave your bathroom darker than it should or cast an unpleasant yellow glow over the space. If you are looking for luxury upgrades, finding better lighting will make the space feel much nicer. Rid your bathroom of these builder-grade lights and invest in recessed lighting to clear the ceiling of bulky, old overhead lights and upgrade your bathroom with a better vanity light.
