Secrets to Creating a Dream Bath
Many homeowners Dallas, Texas and Denver, Colorado have been spending more time in their homes than they could have ever imagined a couple of years ago. Working either full-time or part-time has illuminated the need and desire for a space that provides a refuge from day-to-day stresses. That desire has created a boom in demand for a primary bath that provides a few minutes for homeowners all to themselves devoid of texts, tweets or even the sound of little feet. During the past several years, we have designed numerous primary baths that provide spa-like experiences in the home. Here are a few of the secrets that we have learned to help homeowners in Texas and Colorado create the bath of their dreams.
When most homeowners discuss what they want in their new bath they often request a freestanding tub or a large walk-in shower with multiple spray devices. We almost always recommend these components, but we also add other features that many homeowners in Dallas and Denver overlook or have not considered. A wildly popular feature that contributes to spa-like experiences are therapies that can be added to a tub or shower. These include massage, color, aroma and sound that help homeowners to recharge, rejuvenate and improve their health and wellbeing. We often recommend steam systems as well. The health benefits of steam have been known for centuries. These include improved muscle relaxation and pain relief, better circulation and sleep, and stress relief, among numerous other benefits.
Heated floors add an element of luxury that is hard to match, are not budget breaking and often overlooked. Imagine waking up on a cold winter morning and entering a bath with warm and toasty floors? Similar to kitchens, baths need to accommodate storage needs. We often recommend a mix that includes vanities, cabinets, open shelving and shower niches sized to accommodate shampoo, conditioners, liquid soap, razors, and other products that our clients use daily.
Smart mirrors are another component that help to deliver extraordinary experiences daily. Features often include adjustable integrated LED lighting providing optimal illumination to apply makeup or shave, touchscreen controls, antifog capabilities, Bluetooth connectivity, voice controls and digital assistant integration with other smart home devices.
Investing in higher-quality plumbing fixtures delivers returns that homeowners want and deserve. A thermostatic shower valve allows you to set your shower to a desired temperature and achieve that temperate in a few seconds. There is no need to manually balance hot and cold taps. Placing the shower controls near the entrance or immediately outside of the shower space eliminates the possibility that you will be sprayed with cold water when you turn your shower on.
