If you've ever stepped into a bathroom that felt more like a spa, you know that features like; a stand-alone tub, walk-in shower, and towel warmer help to create a space of luxury, relaxation, and tranquility. What if you could experience that same spa-like aesthetic in your bathroom at home? If you're ready to upgrade, we have some excellent suggestions for going from a mere bathroom to a relaxing retreat. 

Creating a luxurious bathroom doesn't always require a complete remodel, and even smaller projects can improve the overall quality of your space. Luxury bathroom items are a sure way to create a getaway right in the middle of your home. Let's take a look at what you should include in your luxury bathroom remodel.

What Does a Luxury Bathroom Need?

Hands down, Kitchen and bathroom remodels are the most popular projects for homeowners. Unsurprisingly, a bathroom remodel alone can increase your home's value by up to 3%. But even if you're not planning on selling your home anytime soon, an upgrade to your bathroom can bring a completely new feel to your home. So what are some of the features of a luxury bathroom? Glad you asked.

Stand-Alone Tub

Adding a stand-alone tub is a must when you want your bathroom to have a spa-like feel. With numerous design options, stand-alone tubs can accommodate your personal style and that of your current home and bathroom. Clawfoot and pedestal tubs are two of the most popular types of stand-alone tubes in recent years, but there are plenty of other options to choose from as well.

Stand-alone tubs offer the type of luxury you usually see in a spa or hotel bathroom. Replacing your tub with a stand-alone version creates a more peaceful and luxurious environment.

Walk-In Shower

What if taking a shower in your bathroom could feel like being in the middle of the rainforest? A walk-in shower is another simple way to add luxury to your bathroom. Depending on your needs, some luxury bathrooms are complete with a walk-in shower and tub, but whether you want to include a tub is up to you.  

Aside from adding a new walk-in shower, there are other simple ways to upgrade your shower, such as replacing your shower head. A luxury item like a rainfall shower head can completely transform your bathroom. You might also consider upgrading the tile in your shower or replacing the shower doors.

Towel Warmer

What could be more opulent and sumptuous than warm towels when you come out of the shower? It's not a necessary part of your bathroom upgrade, but it is an item that can transform your bathroom into more of a spa.

Bathroom Vanity

As we all know, the bathroom vanity is the focus of your bathroom. It's the area where you likely spend the most time, and it deserves the proper attention. When you have a beautiful vanity in your bathroom, your space and mood are elevated.

If you plan on upgrading your vanity, be sure to customize it to fit your specific needs by adding additional storage space to keep your newly remodeled luxury bathroom clutter-free.

How Do I Make a Small Bathroom Feel Luxurious?

If you have a small bathroom and are concerned about space restrictions, you can still do a lot to make this room more luxurious. One of the best ways to do this is to get creative with storage space. The first step is to eliminate clutter. One way to do this is to remove your laundry hamper and replace it with a laundry chute. Although a laundry chute may not sound luxurious, the lack of visible laundry will give the bathroom a more open and expansive look and feel.

Even if you don't have the option to add a window for a more scenic view, there are plenty of creative ways to give your bathroom that luxury feel with high-end bathroom accessories. For example, try updating the following items in your bathroom:

  • Sink fixtures
  • Tile
  • Flooring
  • Cabinets
  • Showerhead
  • Paint

The size of your bathroom doesn't have to determine the level of luxury, and there's still a lot you can do with a small space.


No matter what style you have in mind for your bathroom, there are many ways to transform your current bathroom into a luxurious retreat in your home. The amount of luxury you want depends on the space available and the budget for your project. While some minor aspects of a bathroom remodeling project can be DIY, stepping up to a more spa-like bathroom requires a professional contractor's keen eye and craftsmanship. A professional touch will make all the difference when you're looking for help with the design and the implementation of the plan for your bathroom upgrade.
