Creating a spa-like master bathroom in your custom home plans gives you the ideal retreat after busy days. You deserve the high-end features available for today’s master bathrooms. So, as you work with your custom home builder on your home design, go ahead and indulge a little; it will pay off in the long run.
Here are some ideas the pros at Parker Built Homes offer to help spark creative design elements for the master bath of your dreams. Once you implement these, you’ll look forward to waking up in the morning and heading home after work to relax in the personalized refuge your master bath offers!
1. Soaking tub
A relaxing soak in an extra-large soaking tub can give you the unwinding you need to prepare for a great night’s sleep. Add a jacuzzi system, and you’ll be sure to appreciate your spa-like master bathroom even more! Extra deep soaking tubs with space on the rim for aromatherapy candles offer you the ultimate in style and enjoyment.
2. Door-free shower
For a crisp, modern look, add a door-free custom shower to your master bath. Style and cleanliness combine for a great overall look and highly functional shower. A rain shower head adds relaxation to your morning routine, and a touch of class to start your day.
3. Ample storage
In the shower, you’ll appreciate a place to store your shower essentials. Generous storage is a must for storing towels, soap, toiletries, makeup, and hair products. Enjoy plush vanity features such as a pull-out hamper, a velvet-lined jewelry drawer, and outlets inside vanity drawers for ease of use with things like hairdryers and curling irons.
4. Add a pop of color
Add a splash of color with an accent vanity, colorful towels, or a soft throw rug. Don’t overload the space with too much color. Instead, stick with soothing neutral walls and flooring with a punch of color here and there.
Install integrated LED vanity lighting for make-up application, canned lighting for your shower, soft lighting options to accommodate the dim evening soak in an oversized soaking tub, and a dim built-in night light for ease of use in the night.
Bring the outdoors inside with refreshing light teeming through your skylights. Boost your overall mood with uplifting sunlight and a glimpse of some green trees, blue sky, or other outdoor beauty.
7. Double sinks and double vanities
Add a touch of class with your sink choice in the master bath. Double sinks are a must for resale value and everyday use.
8. Touchless faucet
A touchless faucet and built-in soap dispenser keep the overall look of the master bath clean and uncluttered, offering a complete sense of calm to enjoy each day in your master bath space.
For health benefits and detoxing, consider customizing your master bath with a personal sauna for you and your spouse. Saunas don’t take up a lot of space, and they are more affordable than many imagine, especially when they are designed into your home from the start.
10. Radiant heat flooring
A radiant heating system in your bathroom flooring makes walking barefoot a spa-like, foot-warming experience. A hydronic heating system offers energy-efficient, budget-friendly toe warming.
11. Walk-in closet off the master bath
For ease of use, customize your master bath with an entrance to your walk-in closet right off the bathroom. Get dressed for the day in the convenience of your master bath and start your day off right! Morning routines should be streamlined, and a walk-in closet off the master bath offers you efficiency and convenience.
12. Walls and flooring
The neutral palette brings a sense of calm to your master bath’s walls and flooring. Lighter colors bring the illusion of more space in your bathroom. Pale blue, green, grey, and white can bring a peaceful overall look to your master bath. Flooring should be practical in that it should not be slippery when wet, should be low maintenance and have a well-coordinated and relaxing look to it. Ceramic tile works well if you desire a classy looking master bath flooring option.
13. Steam shower
When designing your master, if you wish to include a steam shower, be sure the ceiling has a slight slope to it so water droplets roll to one side and down the shower wall rather than onto your head.
14.Universal design features
Accessibility matters to many, and thoughtful universal design features can be added to your custom home design so they are in place if they are ever needed by you, a loved one, or the people you sell your home to. A master bath designed to be accessible to people regardless of possible mobility issues offers thoughtful function to be enjoyed by all. Grab bars can be added discreetly and stylishly near the commode and shower area. A shower bench and handheld shower are thoughtful features as individuals age.
15. A tricked-out toilet
For extra comfort, add a heated toilet seat with a soft close feature so there is no more slamming or controlling of the close of the toilet seat.
16. Heated towel rack
In the cool of winter, a wall mounted, heated towel rack offers you warmth and fresh smelling towels to start your day with comfort.
