6 Top Trends in Todays Master Baths
Master baths have become must-haves for today’s high-end homebuyers. Create an atmosphere of personal indulgence, splurge on the finest materials, hang an extravagant chandelier, install top-of-the-line sound systems and televisions; you are limited only by your imagination. To get the ideas flowing, here are the top 6 trends to create the perfect master bath:
1) Mediterranean-Inspired Tiles
Combining glitz with Old-World style is a big trend today that can easily be pulled off through new Mediterranean-inspired tiles. We’re talking about tiles that are made with modern metallic, elegantly combined with the charm of hand-painted tiles.
2) Soaking Tubs
Think large, freestanding soaking tubs for your bathroom. “Forget about glass-encased showers—these days it’s all about the soaking and free-standing tubs, so much so that we can actually expect a decline in standard tubs with shower-surrounds,” said the San Antonio Express-News in an article titled “Bathroom trends: serene and clean.”
3) Big showers
Today’s trend for showers are BIG; as in walk-in showers with huge panes of glass or solid walls that entirely enfold the area.
4) A Private WC
While the bathroom may be the only remaining private place in a home, the toilet needs to be even more discreet with its own small space for privacy.
5) Heated Floors
Heated floors are not just luxuries anymore; they are actually energy savers, heating the bathroom without cranking up the central heat. Better yet, a fireplace in the master bath is always a nice touch!
6) Other Master Bath Amenities
Many couples want their master bath to have all the amenities necessary for early morning tête-à-têtes or late-night discussions over a glass of wine. Just imagine sipping on a glass of Pinot Grigio while soaking in the tub. All you need is a small refrigerator nearby. It can also hold the cream for your morning coffee, freshly made with a close-at-hand coffee maker.
