Making additions or improvements to your master bathroom is a great way to both increase your home’s market value and improve your quality of life. Even small changes can make a significant difference in your daily and nightly routine. Read on for three ways to make your master bathroom a true sanctuary.
Upgrade Your Shower
Shower upgrades are no longer limited to adding jets, retiling or replacing a curtain or door. Replacing your current system with a digital shower, such as the Thermasol digital shower, will make a significant difference in your showering experience. Depending on what level of customization you choose, the system will allow you to make precise adjustments to temperature and water pressure, control the release of steam and even activate light therapy. Integration with Amazon’s Alexa allows you to make any of these adjustments remotely by issuing a voice command.
Install a Heated Towel Rack
Imagine stepping out of the shower on a chilly winter morning and wrapping yourself in a warm towel. A heated towel rack, also known as a towel warmer, makes this possible, and it is ideal for those looking for a low-cost, do-it-yourself improvement that still provides a feeling of luxury. Heated towel racks are available from Amazon, Home Depot, Bed Bath and Beyond and many other large retailers, and they range in price from approximately $100 to $300. One caveat to installing a heated towel rack is that they can get very hot, so you will need to be careful to avoid any potential burns.
Add a Tub
If you have a stall shower in your master bathroom without a separate tub, installing a tub is a great way to add more functionality and luxury to the space. Based on both budgetary concerns and personal preference, you may purchase either a tub with jets (also known as a Whirlpool or Jacuzzi tub) or a standard tub. Baths provide a relaxing experience that is different from what a shower is able to offer. If your home does not currently have a bathtub in any of its bathrooms, adding one will make it much easier for either you or a potential buyer of your home to bathe small children.
Depending on your personal situation, your budget and the amount of time you are willing to devote to the project of improving your bathroom, you may choose any combination of these options. Other ways to make the master bathroom a more comfortable and inviting space are painting, replacing fixtures and adding his-and-hers sinks. Make sure to consult an experienced contractor, and good luck!
