Master baths are usually able to accommodate 2 people at the same time. Comfort and efficiency are as equally important. Here are a few master bathroom remodel ideas to help you with your plans for a beautiful and functional bathroom.
1. Sculptural Sinks
Above-counter vessels and basins are one of the sought-after choices to add sculptural elegance when it comes to an otherwise standard vanity. These sink types work very well in a master bathroom with an eclectic, Asian, traditional or contemporary style. The vessel sinks may require wall-mount or tall faucets.
2. Planning For Plumbing
Setting up your bathtub in an area that is soothing will mean you need to make the necessary plans for plumbing. Certain power showers and whirlpool tubs will require an upgrade in your plumbing. European or Designer fixtures usually require 3/4 -inch pipes opposed to standard ½-inch versions. If you are considering master bathroom remodel ideas that involve the purchase of one of the luxury showers which use 9-gallons of water every minute, you may need to invest in a 2nd water heater.
3. Gorgeous Mirrors
Look past just the standard bathroom sections of a store when looking for a mirror. In many cases, mirrors that are intended for a space such as a living room work well in bathrooms and offer more interesting styles and details. You can add even more impact when using a glamorous chandelier.
4. Use A Focal Point
A luxury tub that accommodates two people is often the ideal center-piece for a rejuvenated or renovated master bathroom. To make sure you never run out of hot water, the NKBA (National Kitchen and Bath Association) recommends that water heaters should be a minimum of 2/3rds of the tub’s capacity.
5. Showers In A Master Bathroom
Design options that are flexible for open showers carry on inspiring homeowners that are interested in remodeling their master bathrooms. If you are interested in this shower type, you need to plan for ventilation to avoid humidity that can affect the other surfaces in the bathroom.
6. Smooth Entrances
Many homeowners prefer a luxury shower over a bathtub because a shower will take less space, offer different water massage types and do away with the danger of having to step up into a bathtub for older homeowners. Televisions are another luxury item which can make your time in your bathroom even more enjoyable.
7. Style Decisions
Choosing a faucet for your bathroom involves more that just a basic style decision. The warranty length, valve quality and finish quality are other important factors when it comes to your final purchase decision. For example, fixtures made out of solid brass may cost more, but they will last you the longest. Zinc is less expensive and durable but can corrode when the plating starts to wear off or water is exposed to the zinc.
Another consideration when it comes to modern installations are wall-mount faucet. These fixtures have become increasingly popular as they free up countertop space that offers a clean-design. You can also accent the faucet from behind with the use of mosaic tiles.
