As a new or seasoned homeowner, you can transform your space into the home of your dreams. You can do this by carrying your personal style and taste throughout your entire house – including your master bathroom.  

Check out these six unique upgrades to ask your contractor about during your upcoming renovation consultation. 

Entertainment Features 

Unwind or get excited with entertainment features in your bathroom! Whether you want to jam out or relax, listening to music with professionally installed speakers can make a mundane bathing experience one you’ll look forward to. If you fall within the 43% of shower-time music listeners, we’re talking to you. Professionally installed, waterproof speakers are the way to go.  

If you prefer visual entertainment over purely audial amusement, you can add a television. When installing a TV in a bathroom, you must ensure the television can withstand humidity and moisture like this LED television on Amazon. You’ll never miss your favorite show while you’re getting ready to leave the house again.  

Heated Flooring

When you get out of bed in the morning it’s likely one of the first areas of the house you’ll go to is the bathroom. Most bathroom flooring materials do not retain heat, so you either have to grin and bear it or remember to wear slippers or socks each time you make a trip into that room.  

You could put rugs in certain areas of the bathroom, but that solution doesn’t exactly take care of the problem entirely. With heated flooring in the bathroom, you no longer have to worry about freezing feet.  

Underfloor heating is an energy-efficient solution that doesn’t take long to install. Professional bathroom contractors can place it underneath tile, laminate, vinyl, or stone, making it an option that many homeowners can enjoy. 

Fireplace

Speaking of warmth, a fireplace is another inviting aspect of an extravagant bathroom that you can consider.  

This comforting feature is perfect for those who love natural aspects throughout their home. Whether you install a wood-burning, gas, or electric fireplace, the wood-burning element will keep you warm and cozy. 

You can find fireplaces that can be installed in your bathroom in a variety of finishes and sizes both online and in stores. We recommend adding an electric fireplace because they are both beautiful and safe to use in a bathroom.  

Freestanding Bathtub 

You might be wondering what makes a freestanding bathtub more luxurious than a built-in tub. Freestanding tubs offer you the luxury of openness and accessibility, whereas you’re limited to a one-sided exit point with built-ins.  

Available in a variety of styles, shapes, and sizes, freestanding tubs are great for the following purposes: 

These tubs can come with or without ledges, so you can choose whichever you prefer. Ledges are good for storing products you use in the bath, lighting candles, and placing decorative features such as planted flowers or other adornments.  

Enhance your bathing experience by simultaneously enjoying some of the other features listed in this article. Turn on the fireplace on a cold winter’s night, listen to relaxing music, and more.  

Vanity/Makeup Area 

Part of your daily routine might include spending a significant amount of time getting ready. A bathroom vanity is the best place to do so, and there are a lot of ways a bathroom contractor can help you implement this idea in your own home.  

A dedicated space for your hair styling tools and products, makeup, and more are perfect for anyone that’s interested in beauty trends. The stylish storage space can be made to properly store your hot tools, which is often a concern for those who need to get ready and leave the house quickly.

Some vanities have huge mirrors with lightbulbs installed along the perimeter for enhanced lighting. We recommend using a lighted mirror whether you’re applying makeup, brushing your teeth, or performing other ritualistic activities to ensure a quality job.

Walk-in Closet 

Tired of cramming your clothes in tiny drawers? Sick of your clothes getting wrinkled in the closet because there’s not enough space? Well, a walk-in closet is a great solution for you. 

These closets are convenient in many ways. Rather than a bar to hang your clothes on, you can install shelves, hooks, rods, drawers, and more to accommodate – and display – your apparel and accessories. Walk-in closets are a must-have for fashionistas: the more space you have in your closet, the more room there is for you to add to your wardrobe!  

You can also use the room as a private space for getting dressed. With your items easily accessible, a walk-in closet is meant for dressing, storing clean clothes, and keeping worn clothes in one area before taking them to the laundry.  

Space is also freed up in your bedroom if you’re using one or more dressers to hold your items. You could use that space in other ways that are more useful than just storage areas.
