There comes a point in life when you can really afford to concentrate on transforming the house you have into the home you want. Personalizing your living space so it becomes a center of pleasure and joy is a really fun process. Once you fully understand who you are, how you live in your home, and what your needs are, selecting those upgrades that will make you smile each and every time you use them becomes so much easier.
Let’s talk about the Master Bathroom.
For most families, the Master Bath is the room that gets the least amount of love. There’s always some other renovation or remodel that takes priority, especially when there’s an active, growing family’s needs to consider. As a result, Master Bathrooms often feature bad lighting, tired, worn out fixtures, and flooring that’s seen better days.
If you’re interested in creating a comfortable, spa-like master bath, there’s three words you should know: barrier-free shower. These walk in showers are larger than you’re used to, with design features that conserve water and make it easy to bathe independently, even if you’ve got some mobility challenges. Throughout Montgomery County, we’re seeing homeowners upgrade the bathroom by having both a barrier free shower and a free standing tub installed: the combination allows for easy everyday bathing as well as luxurious soaks when you want them.
Simple, sustainable surfaces are the go-to choice for upscale Master Bath flooring, cabinetry, and countertop surfaces. Color palates tend to be subdued: if brighter hues are used, homeowners are tending to incorporate them in easily-swapped out elements like shower curtains, towels, and rugs. Natural stone countertops, particularly granite and quartz, pair well with bamboo and painted cabinetry.
Finally, flooring. Knowing that aging in place is the plan for many Maryland homeowners, the emphasis is on finding Master Bath floor coverings that look great while minimizing the risk of slips and falls. Tile remains the top choice, particularly textured natural materials. Choose tiles that don’t need a ton of special upkeep – after all, the point of a luxurious Master Bath is that it allows you to relax!
