Master Bathroom Design Ideas

The master bathroom is the ideal place to add a touch of luxury and a real wow factor. It is the place where we can relax our tired mind and body and isolate ourselves from stress. Traditionally taking a long bath is a custom way to destress, or get refreshed under a rainfall shower.

Deciding upfront on the style your bathroom will help when adding in the additional wow factors.

  • Victorian bathrooms are perfect for the homeowner who prefers a lush, romantic and pampered feel for their bathroom space.
  • To design a modern bathroom, utilise geometric shapes and patterns, clean lines, and minimal colours. Creating a modern bathroom that has a simplistic and clean feeling.
  • Classic bathroom designs are inspired by design trends where materials and decor are connected to specific historical eras. High-quality wood pieces are often used for cabinets, benches or chairs.
  • The contemporary bathroom design incorporates strong lines, smooth form and accessories. A strong emphasis on line and form — two essentials of good design — gives contemporary style its energy.

Some feature ideas that create a luxury bathroom.

  • Built in large mirrors in your bathroom creates an optical illusion of an expansive space.
  • Create a more spacious looking room with high ceilings working in the wow factor with a skylight.
  • A sparkling chandelier creates a sophisticated feel, adding to the luxury of the bathroom. The choice of chandelier will be determined by the style of your bathroom.
  • A walk-in dual shower in the master bathroom with matching rainfall silver showerheads adds to the feel of luxury.
  • A Japanese soaking tub is ideal for smaller spaces where you want to focus on the shower, it is deep enough for the bather to be fuller submerged.
  • A luxury soaking tub is perfect for someone to have a long, relaxing soak and is wide enough for two people. Your style will determine whether you select a free standing tub or have a tub with clawed feet.
  • If your property allows it, and privacy isn’t an issue, create an open air bathroom by replacing a wall with a sliding door. On warm days, open your door and enjoy the warm sunlight.
  • A bathroom offering a splendid view with wall to wall windows, creates the feeling of soaking in nature. The bottom of the window is to be in line with the top of the bath tub. For additional privacy and light filtering, add shades.
