7 Must Haves For Your Luxury Bathroom Renovation
A bathroom renovation not only adds value to your home but it also updates its style, and makes it better adapted to your changing needs. So, if you’re spending money on a luxury bathroom renovation, here are 7 things you should consider to improve the functionality, storage, and comfort of the space.
1. Heated Flooring
When renovating your bathroom, underfloor heating is definitely worth considering. Yes, you’ll end up paying a little more for your floors, but there are so many benefits that make it worth it in the long run, such as energy savings, resale value, and of course comfort level.
Also, heated flooring allows you to enjoy your entire bathroom space without bulky radiators hanging on the wall, opening up your design space and giving you more freedom to get creative.
2. Towel Warmer
As well as toasty toes, you’ll want warm towels. Towel warmers allow you to experience the luxury of spa-like warm towels every time you step out of the shower or bath, sounds great right?
Not only that, a heated towel rack also allows you to dry delicate personal items such as swimsuits and other wet clothing. Plus, the warmth it emits also adds supplemental heat to the room.
3. Tiles That Pop
Not only do they protect the walls and floors from water damage, bathroom tiles play a key role in setting the look and feel of the room. They can open up a space and create your ideal ambiance, such as fresh and revitalising or warm and soothing.
The good news is, you don’t need to spend a fortune to create the vibe you want. Floor and wall tiles do not have to be expensive, just interesting or textured to make the backdrop interesting.
It’s most important to select a flooring material that, first, prevents moisture from seeping below the surface and causing damage and, second, won’t be so slick when wet that it poses danger. After that, the final selection generally comes down to a balancing act of style and budget.

4. Layered Lighting
Forget an unflattering central light in your bathroom – lights over the mirror can cast unflattering shadows. Instead, we recommend installing multiple layers of lighting i.e.wall lights over or either side of the mirror to give consistent light across your face. Under-cabinet LEDs would also give a luxurious feel to the space. .
5. Twin Basins
If you regularly find yourself with a queue outside the bathroom in the morning rush, why not consider twin basins?. These are perfect for en suites and family bathrooms alike.
Also, having two sinks means you’ll have two distinct spaces for your personal items, therefore can be very useful for organising your bathroom. Your skincare items and makeup can be kept beside your sink without imposing on your partner’s or house mate’s space, making a double sink more convenient for everyone.
6. Built-In Storage
Bottles, tubes and jars can take up a lot of space. Bathroom storage is therefore vital for the room to feel uncluttered and clean, but you want to make sure it doesn’t eat into valuable floor space.
Opt for effective built-in bathroom storage and create alcoves in showering and bathing areas to provide handy spots for those bulky products.
7. Free Standing Bath
There is something about a freestanding bath that screams luxury, and is definitely a worthwhile investment. No longer are clawfoot tubs the only option but now sleek contemporary and transitional freestanding tubs in a variety of shapes are available. They are not only elegant and sleek but can also help the bathroom feel light and open.
If you are apprehensive about the weight of a cast iron roll top then not to worry, there are a number of different models available made from steel and acrylic to overcome the issue.
