Simple ideas to create your own spa retreat
If your ideal vacation includes holing yourself up in a luxurious spa until the sun goes down, recent strides in bathroom renovations are sure to make you swoon. Of course, remodeling your master bath into a spa retreat like these will make going to work a bit of a challenge. Oh, well.
#1Wall Tiles. In order to recreate the look and feel of a spa, homeowners are paying more attention to their flooring. Large travertine tiles extended up onto the walls create that gorgeous marble look. Plus, theyre easy to clean.
#2Heated Flooring. Cold feet got you down? Heated tiles can cure that. This trend has taken the remodeling world by storm and has yet to wane in popularity. An insulated electric cable must be installed underneath the tile in order to keep your toes nice and toasty.
#3Privacy Glass. Master spas are also bringing a little privacy back into the bathroom by sanctioning off the toilet from the rest of the space. If creating a separate room is too great a challenge, you can always just add a partition or frosted glass.
#4Comfort Features. In order to bring the look and feel of luxurious comfort together, you may want to invest in a relaxing sound machine or a few lush plants. Bring in the things that help make you feel at ease, and you may never have to shell out big bucks for a spa retreat again.
