Your master bathroom is an important room. It’s not only one of the first places you visit in the morning to get ready for a busy day, but one of the last places you visit before you call it a night. With the right materials and design, you can create a luxurious bathroom that can be a source of rejuvenation, relaxation, and tranquility.
Ready to create a beautiful, spa-worthy master bathroom? Take a look at our guide below. It’s not difficult to design the bathroom of your dreams in your custom home. In fact, we can bring your idea to life in any of our custom home communities, including Kensington and Long Cove, and long-standing communities like historic Montgomery.
Choose the best materials
Go ahead, you deserve the best. The master bathroom is definitely a room where high-quality materials go a long way. We love the use of marble, granite, or quartz for master bathroom floors, countertops and shower walls. Consider high-end, custom frameless shower doors for a modern look, or use onyx as an accent material. Onyx looks especially stunning next to marble.
One of the greatest benefits of having a custom built home – from Kensington to Montgomery – is that you can work with us to truly design the master bathroom you want. When it comes to an amazing bathroom, think space. Why not create a master bathroom suite with enough room for a couch or chaise lounge? Of course, if your master bathroom is smaller, you can still create the feel of a larger space by choosing a minimalist design for maximum luxury.
A room with a view
How often do you see bathrooms with large windows that give way to magnificent views? Not often. But imagine soaking in a bath while taking in the sights of your garden, the skyline, or the trees. If you’re worried about privacy, there are a number of window treatments that can block views from the outside in while still giving you the opportunity to be inspired by the beautiful scenery.
Choose an amazing bathtub
Every luxury master bathroom needs a stellar tub. We love the modern look of sunken tubs as well as the classic, timeless look of clawfoot tubs. Check out this Hinoki Kyoto Ofuro Japanese Alcove soaking bathtub, for a really natural, elegant spa-like bathroom. There are a number of gorgeous whirlpool bathtubs available as well, like this Richmond heated air jet tub.
Add a stunning shower
Sure, showers are typically thought to be more practical than bathtubs, but that doesn’t mean taking a shower can’t be a luxurious experience. Consider building a free-standing shower, completely separate from the bathtub, with gorgeous ceramic tile walls and floors. Build a large enough shower area that can also include seating, or a shower with an additional showerhead, as well as extra space for shampoos and shaving. You could also elevate your shower, or feature etched glass doors. We love this natural, wood shower, too.
From digital bath and shower controls to televisions in the shower, technology has definitely made its way into the master bathroom. Consider using color therapy, or chromotherapy, in your shower or bathtub by adding LED lighting that cycles through colors to balance your energy. Install this toilet by TOTO that uses electrolyzed water and flushes automatically, add an in-home steam room, or a heated drawer to keep your towels warm.
Choose luxury accents
Make sure to choose quality accessories that compliment your luxury master bathroom perfectly. For example, stock the bathroom with soft, plush linens and towels, use accent lighting to enhance its spa-like feel and choose unique rugs and framed photos. Why not use fresh cut flowers in the master bathroom? And always have a wide selection of luxury bath products around for when you’re ready for a little escape.
