If you’re transforming your bathroom and looking for some design inspiration, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve put together seven sizzling hot luxury bathroom renovation ideas for 2021.
1) Create A Blissful Spa-Like Bathroom
It’s always nice to feel pampered, but you don’t need to wait for your next luxurious spa visit when you can create your own tranquil retreat. A bathroom spa renovation can help to reduce stress, which in turn promotes good health and wellbeing. Relaxing your body can lead to a relaxed mind. Everything works together to establish a comforting and harmonious environment that delights the senses and soothes the soul.
First things first, a spa bathroom is not complete without a bathtub. Luxuriate amongst the suds and bubbles of a soaker tub. There are lots to choose from, including freestanding tubs, drop-in tubs, clawfoot and whirlpool tubs with lights. But don’t just leave it at the bathtub. Install a separate shower unit, such as a large walk-in shower with a rain showerhead, built-in bench and opulent wall spray jets.
If you’ve got space, step up to the next level of luxury by putting in a sauna. You’ll spend many stress-busting, skin-rejuvenating moments being enveloped by a wave of warmth as you escape the fast pace of modern living.
2) Make It Marble
Marble is synonymous with luxury, sophistication and status, typical of palatial interiors and a classic choice for a high-end bathroom. It’s refined, expensive and timeless and has been used since ancient times to make bathrooms, saunas and bathhouses. Delicately veined, marble adds elegance and the wow factor.
When transforming a merely functional space into something stylish and sumptuous using marble, you have a variety of shades at your disposal, such as cream, black, red and yellow. Opting for grey and white tones allows for a touch of colour later on when you add accessories and furniture.
If you really love what it can do, then an all-over marble makeover might be for you, with large blocks used for the sink and tub and large tiles for the wall and floor. This creates a crisp, clean, minimal look.
3) Display Beautiful Art
Art is not just for displaying on living room or bedroom walls. The right piece of artwork can add a burst of character to a bathroom. Whether it’s a painting, vintage photograph or sculpture, there are lots of creative ways to enhance your luxury bathroom with art. You could even have a gallery wall showcasing a handful of etchings and paintings.
If your heart is set on hanging art, make sure it is made of materials that can withstand the heat and moisture.
4) Glam It Up With Gold
Gold never goes out of style and gives a sense of wealth and luxury to any area where it is being added. Gold sink fittings, walls, hardware, ceilings and tiles will make your space sparkle and shine and look like something straight out of an interior design magazine. Being Midas-like and turning everything to gold may be a little excessive for most tastes. A few touches are all that is needed for a truly glam look. For example, gold taps, a gold accent wall and gold tiles for the shower enclosure.
Another luxury bathroom idea is a plated rose gold colour scheme with rose gold taps, sinks and toilet seat covers. Rose gold is a blend of pure 24 karats yellow gold, copper and silver. One of the first people to use Rose gold (also known as Russian gold) was jeweller Carl Faberge when he created his famous Faberge eggs in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
5) Bring In Natural Light
How would you like to shower under a starry sky or bathe while contemplating the clouds without worrying about privacy issues? A skylight is a luxury resort-style addition that floods your bathroom with natural light and gives you the wonderful feeling of unwinding outdoors. It will fit in with any bathroom theme, be it contemporary chic, industrial, rustic or retro. Choose from a range of designs and shapes such as dome skylights, rectangular, oval and pyramid. Skylights are also highly practical and can be opened up to let out the steam, thereby helping to reduce the risk of mould.
6) Choose Cool Custom Features
To enhance the feeling of luxury, you want to be sure that your new bathroom is unique, a one-of-a-kind haven that can’t be replicated elsewhere. So reach out to furniture makers for bespoke furniture pieces. No department store or cookie-cutter furniture for you. Surround yourself with handcrafted vanity units, shelves, cupboards and bath panels that were designed according to your vision
7) Add Some Finishing Touches
Complete your luxury bathroom renovation with one or two final flourishes. Think of heated floors to keep your feet warm during winter, premium tiles and sculpted stone basins and baths, or double sized showers.
How Much Does a Luxury Bathroom Renovation Cost?
The ultimate cost of your luxury bathroom renovation depends on several factors such as the size of the space, whether any structural changes are required, the quality of materials and fittings used and just how lavish you want to be. However, to give you a ballpark figure, the cost of your luxury bathroom renovation could be upwards of $30,000. But if you want to splash out on some truly extravagant features such as floor heating and elaborate lighting systems, the price might be higher. Bear in mind that not only will you be getting the paradise-like bathroom of your dreams, but you could also be adding considerable value to your property.
