A bathroom should be a stylish oasis in the house, and you can achieve this with simple things like beautiful faucets or a welcoming tub. You can upgrade your Highland Park, IL home with a few updates and finishing touches in the bathroom that really make it feel welcoming.
Unwind and Save Water With a Steam Shower
A steam shower is a great way to unwind after a long day at work. Steam helps release tension in your muscles, relieves stress, and it can help you relax. Plus, a steam shower uses less water on average than even energy-saving shower heads.
Putting in a steam shower is a big project. You might need to build a steam stall and put in new tiling. Of course, you’ll also need a plumber to install the steam generator and control mechanisms.
Indulge With a Jetted Tub
If your bathroom has the space for it, why not go the extra mile for the ultimate indulgence? A jetted tub for two in your master en suite can serve as a cozy getaway for you and your spouse. Like a steam shower, a jetted tub feels good and has potential health benefits. It can help you battle stress and encourage good circulation and pain relief.
Install a Second Sink
As long as you’re thinking about upgrading your plumbing system, you might want to consider installing double sinks in your bathrooms. The extra space will streamline your morning routine. Plus, a double vanity in the kids’ bathroom will end the daily battle for bathroom and mirror time.
Change the Ambiance With New Lighting
If the lighting in your bathroom is too bright, those nighttime trips to relieve yourself could wake you up to the point where it’s difficult to get back to sleep. Conversely, overly dark lighting means you might miss out on little details while grooming. The best solution is to install layers of light. Lights above the mirror should be bright, but you should also consider a ceiling fixture with adjustable lighting levels.
