5 Ways That You Can Transform Your Bathroom Into an Oasis

Imagine coming home from work after a long, hard day, kicking off your shoes, and walking into your own personal spa. That may not be your reality now, but that dream is not out of reach. You could be chin-deep in a bubble bath or relaxing under the stream of a rain shower within the next year. A few minor changes can give you the power to transform your bathroom into an oasis.

Here are five ways to transform your bathroom into paradise:

1. Install a Frameless Shower Next to Tub

Nothing will give your bathroom that luxurious spa-like feel quite as well as a freestanding tub next to a frameless shower. This look is all the rage, and it brings a classic beauty that transforms an ordinary bathroom into something far more extraordinary.

The shower glass will give you a gorgeous view of the solid-surface you choose, which can be an art of its own. Create a beautiful and relaxing space by using the clean, sleek look of subway tile. To create a focal point, you can offset the subway tile with a subtle shower-pan as your shower floor. If that's not your style, there are different colors, materials, and shapes to choose from to create a bathroom that fits your aesthetic.

2. Choose Luxury Bathroom Vanity Units

While serving an essential function in your bathroom, the vanity can still be a showpiece. Instead of the usual bathroom vanity, opt for something unique and elegant. A high-end bathroom vanity will often be constructed from high-quality hardwoods, making them well worth your investment.

Top it off with nice hardware and a uniquely shaped sink to pack in a visual punch. There are various sink options, from a glass bowl to a fountain stream — the possibilities are endless.

3. Add High-End Bathroom Furniture

If you have the space, luxury bathroom furniture can add a special touch to your oasis. A freestanding linen closet with glass doors is a beautiful way to display your towels and knick-knacks. Mirrored doors are another way to bring in beauty, reflect light, and spruce up your space. Consider adding a teak stool next to the tub for seating or a place to set your bathroom essentials.

Keep an eye out for high-end bathroom furniture made of high-quality wood, such as teak or cedar. Both are durable and won't be damaged by moisture.

4. Bring in Light with Windows

Adding some windows in the bathroom can bring in bright, natural light, which will add to the ambiance of your room. The addition of windows in your bathroom can make it look more spacious. Not only does a window in the bathroom provide an airy aesthetic, but it also adds functionality because of the ventilation. If you really want to get fancy, add a built-in window seat, too!

If you're worried about privacy, there's no reason to be concerned. In addition to all kinds of beautiful window coverings, you can still achieve privacy with frosted glass or the perfect window placement.

5. Finish It off with Small Touches

Bring in color and character by hanging interesting art on the walls. Plants are a nice touch if you have the space for them. Candles to light during a relaxing soak are a perfect way to bring that spa-like feel to your bathroom. To top everything off, invest in some luxury towels.

If you have the budget, consider adding heated tile for a nice, warm floor. Think about what a treat it would be to include a towel warmer for extra pampering.
