We all need a relaxing space to spend a few minutes and unwind every single day. Outfitting your bathroom to become a luxury spa starts with a serene color palette, and a peaceful ambiance to escape the stress of the day. Your bathroom should be a place of complete and total serenity—from the scent of your candles to the window treatments. La Maison is here to help you create a beautiful bathroom to indulge all your senses.
Choose lighting wisely. Pay attention to the wattage when purchasing light bulbs, as lower wattage can make a big difference in the bathroom. Fluorescent lighting is never recommended in the bathroom because of the harsh light –the softer the lighting the more you can create a mood. A great option is to install dimmer lights with various levels of brightness. If you share your bathroom with a spouse or significant other, installing the right vanity for the two of you can make a world of a difference in the morning and at night. Couples ideally share a bathroom space, but that doesn’t mean you have to compromise your space! Install a double vanity and experience the wonders of separate space!Make sure your vanity has the right lighting to put on makeup; light dimmers are also a good option here too.
You Have the Right to Accessorize
Have fun with accessorizing in your bathroom! This is the time and place to pick your favorite pieces, whether it’s wall art or candles to create the right ambiance or functional items that make your bathroom more convenient. Candles are a great way to create a relaxing and serene atmosphere. Create a candle arrangement for your Jacuzzi area with different heights to give some visual interest to your space. A jewelry dish on your vanity is a great way to keep track of your jewelry and prevent losing your favorite pieces to the drain. We suggest luxury furniture pieces such as a stool or poof for your vanity so you can comfortably sit and get ready in the morning.
Most interior designers will tell you the softer the color the more applicable it is to a smaller space. Choose whichever color you like, but keep in mind color creates mood and ambiance. If you’re going for a completely feminine bathroom, warm colors work best while cool blues and greens lend to both male and female sensibilities. Create a themed bathroom and with color as well. Sandy beige paired with teal blue and cool cucumber make for a perfect beach themed bathroom. Go completely modern and masculine with dark wood cabinets, white countertops and sleek chrome faucets. We love modern interior design and so will you!
The Good Stuff:
What do we mean by the good stuff? All things luxurious! Think plush bathmats, expensive towels with you and your man’s monogram on it, and all the necessary bathtub accessories for the most relaxing hour you’ll spend all day. Creating a bathroom that feels like a spa is all about the experience. From the moment you walk in until you turn the light off every aspect of your bathroom should be luxurious. We love the idea of a steam shower with a built in bench lined with gorgeous tile or real rocks if you want a more organic look and feel. Install a deep soaker bathtub, recessed in the floor for an extremely relaxing bubble bath.
All Things Tech
Some of the newest technology will help you achieve a bit more luxury too! Heated toilet seats with LED lights will guide you late at night, and take away the need for harsh lighting. Choose from endless types of showerheads and faucets ranging from traditional design to absolutely modern and high tech. Imagine the last time you visited a spa, and every towel was warmed to the perfect temperature; a heated towel rack can give you this little slice of luxury at home. For at truly luxurious glass shower, install glass that turns opaque with the switch of a lock for total privacy. Explore high tech options like this and visit our Smart Home blog for more ideas!
