A Spa Oasis Will Help Soak Your Stress Away

21 Jun

A spa oasis will help soak your stress away

We all love a beautiful spa bathroom when we’re on a luxury vacation. Why not enjoy that luxury every day of the year while we’re at home, too?

Upgrade your master bathroom to a five-star retreat

 

 

You can create a spa experience in any size bathroom although bigger is almost always better!

Think neutral colors because they lend themselves to the calmness and serenity you’d like for a spa retreat. Also consider coordinating colors with your master bedroom for a seamless transition from sleep to serenity.

Here’s where you can start:

  • New sinks, countertops and backsplashes
  • Exquisite new hardware, including pulls, handles and faucets
  • A soothing paint color that makes you feel calm
  • Soft and luxurious bath textiles, including towels, bath rugs and bathrobes
  • An elegant vanity, preferably a double vanity if you have room

    Begin and end your days in luxury and comfort

  • Stunning framed mirrors, instead of frameless wall-to-wall mirrors
  • Layered lighting for both function and beauty
  • Maybe even a skylight to bring in natural light

Even more ideas to enhance your spa experience include:

  • A beautiful, elegant soaking tub
  • A steam shower
  • Plenty of towel racks, and even heated towel warmers
  • Soaps, scrubs, lotions and fragrances that please YOU
  • Beautiful smelling candles and aromatherapy
  • A built-in bench or movable chair or stool
  • Built-in storage, to keep chaos to a minimum and maintain a Zen calm feeling

Plan for a master bathroom makeover this season – you can’t help but slow down and relax.

A new counter can top off your kitchen or bath beautifully

22 Mar

A new counter can top off your kitchen or bath beautifully.

Changing your countertops can make a visible difference in the look of a room. Depending on what you select in material, color and pattern, the new countertops can add personality or they can blend into the background to call attention to another design element. The choice is yours!

Durability is probably more key in this home design decision than almost any other because most of the time countertops get lots of use. Some surfaces are easier to maintain than others, and some can be resurfaced while others cannot. That’s why it’s best to consult an expert when you select a countertop material.

So many material choices are available, including: concrete, granite, marble, butcher block, engineered surfaces, stainless steel, soapstone, limestone, zinc, copper, tile and glass.

Some surfaces are more costly than others, so your budget is an important consideration. And your choices in color and pattern are almost unlimited.

Consider using two different countertop materials in your kitchen, one near the cooktop and sink, and another on an island.

Various countertop materials can lend quite a different feel to a room. For example:

  • For elegance, think marble.
  • For cozy, think butcher-block wood.
  • For vintage, think tile.
  • For country, think limestone.
  • For avant-garde, think concrete.

Add the perfect finishing touch to your kitchen or bath with a beautiful new countertop. For more ideas or for help with your next design project, please contact the team at Delux Drapery & Shade Co..

A beautiful bathroom helps you begin and end your days in luxury and comfort.

A beautiful bathroom helps you begin and end your days in luxury and comfort.

Make this important room into a personal retreat.

Most of us think about bathrooms in terms of function. And that’s the first need! In addition, consider your bathroom as a room of beauty and comfort! It’s not hard to change a drab bathroom into a luxurious cocoon.

For a calm, serene look and feel, use neutral colors, like white or off-white. If you’re looking for energy, select bold and bright colors, and consider coordinating an en-suite bathroom color scheme with the bedroom color.

Some obvious places to start your bathroom plan are:

  • A paint color that makes you feel pamperedbathroom3
  • An elegant vanity, maybe even a vintage table that’s repurposed
  • New countertops, backsplashes and sinks
  • Updated hardware, including faucets, pulls and handles, available in a variety of styles and finishes
  • Beautiful framed mirrors, instead of frameless wall-to-wall mirrors
  • Layered lighting that’s beautiful AND functional, and maybe even a skylight to bring in natural light

Redoing the shower or tub is a bigger project, but how much fun to create a luxurious bathing experience. This is a good place to spurge on finishes and hardware since you’ll enjoy them every day of the year.

Function is also key when updating a bathroom.

  • Use slip-resistant flooring.
  • Select finishes that are easy to clean and resistant to water, especially if you live in a humid environment.
  • Plan for as much storage as you need, so the bathroom never looks cluttered.
  • Include plenty of towel racks, so towels are easy to reach and have a chance to dry.  
  • If you have space, include a place to sit, whether it’s a built-in bench or a movable chair or stool.

Are you ready to have a luxurious new retreat in your home? Focus on remodeling your bathroom this season!
