If you’re planning a bathroom remodel and you want it to offer the latest in luxury additions, then this article is for you. While we’d all love to have a private swimming pool in our homes, these are more approachable options for the master bath. Whatever you add to your new bathroom, remember that Mission Tile West is your top choice for bathroom tile of all sizes, types, styles, and colors.
- Double undermount sinks
- Radiant heat in the floors
- A separate room for a toilet
- Built-in soap dispensers and touchless faucets
- Curbless shower
Having two sinks within the master bath not only looks great, but it can prevent arguments down the road. Do you have a partner who’s messier than you? Or perhaps you like to let things be while your partner prefers an uber-clean sink? Having your own can prevent serious issues. It also makes it easier for you both to get ready at the same time. If you want sinks that are attached directly to the underside of the countertop with no rim, remember that you’ll need a water-resistant countertop and that cleanup is much easier without a lip that traps dirt and crime.
No one wants to step onto a cold tile floor right out of the shower, but it’s often accepted as a reality. It doesn’t have to be, thanks to radiant heat in the floor. In addition to being a luxury experience, it’s also a very energy efficient way to heat a bathroom. Why? Because traditional heating sources first blow out all the cool air that’s been trapped in your air ducts. Heated floors on the other hand work off independent thermostats that you can set to come up before you get up in the morning so that they’re warm for you but heat isn’t wasted.
It’s common in Europe for the toilet and the shower to be in different rooms or areas. It does require more space but it adds privacy and makes it easy for two people to get ready at the same time. If you want to be truly European, add a bidet with your toilet.
If you’ve read the studies that discuss how many germs are on bathroom faucets, then you may be the perfect customer for a touchless faucet. It saves water, prevents overflow, and makes it easy to get the water turned on. A built-in soap dispenser is another great feature that ensures you’ll always have plenty of suds to clean your hands.
If you’re interested in aging into your current home, then a curbless shower is a must-have. In some showers, the floor is sloped in such a way that there’s no need for a shower door to prevent water from onto the floor. This option is the most affordable option and it also reduces the amount of cleaning that must be done.
