Tub with rain shower

If you’re tired of a regular shower head then a tub with a rain shower is an excellent alternative. A freestanding tub is a fantastic investment because it looks classy and provides you with the perfect place to enjoy a long and warm bath. Go for a copper or cast iron tub if you want a tub that screams luxury because it can make any bathroom look elegant. If you’re planning to install your freestanding tub in an upstairs bathroom, be sure to get in touch with a building designer because these tubs are very heavy and you’ll need to reinforce your bathroom floor to ensure it can support the added weight of your new tub. 

Complement your new freestanding tub with a rain shower to complete your luxury bathroom renovation. Rain showers are more relaxing than regular showerheads because they provide full coverage when you’re standing under them, unlike regular showerheads which mostly provide water to your face or head. 

Calacatta Carrara bathroom

If there’s a list of bathroom materials that scream luxury then marble will be on top of the list and when it comes to marble, Calacatta is one of the rarest and most expensive marble in the world that you can only find in the Carrara quarries of Italy. Because of its rarity, a Calacatta Carrara bathroom is a luxurious bathroom that will set your bathroom apart.

Transforming your bathroom using Calacatta Carrara bathroom gives you a lot of room for creative freedom because it comes in a wide range of hues like cream, white, mint green, and ivory. This amazing marble also comes in slabs and tiles so you can have a bathroom with Calacatta Carrara floor tiles and walls lined with marble slabs.

Spa-inspired bathroom

A spa is a place that people associate with relaxation and having a spa-inspired bathroom is a luxury bathroom renovation idea you can explore if you want an uber-relaxing experience in the comforts of your home. 

You can start by lining your bathroom floor with wood planks or cork. These are excellent materials for a spa-inspired bathroom because organic materials have a warm and relaxing effect. Although homeowners often shy away from wood as a bathroom flooring material, you can make them water-resistant to increase their durability and resistance to humidity. Place some river rocks along the walls to heighten that spa-like feeling.

 Make your bathroom more luxurious by having a steam room in your bathroom. The heat of the steam room can help you release endorphins to help you combat stress. It’s also the perfect place to relax when it’s winter and you want a warm place to detox.

Bay window bathroom

If your house is in a picturesque location then take advantage of your vantage point by constructing a bathroom with a view by tearing down a wall and replacing it with an expansive bay window. Place a tub in front of the bay window and you can take a relaxing bath while appreciating your surroundings. If you’re worried about privacy, you can use one-way glass so you won’t be seen from the outside. 

Another idea worth exploring for this luxury bathroom renovation idea is to install floor-to-ceiling automatic blinds. You can close the blinds during the day and pull them up during the night. Line your bay window with some aromatic candles and you can have a romantic bath during the night while enjoying the starry night-time sky outside your window. 

Modern tub bathroom

If you want a luxurious, relaxing, and healthy bathroom then you should go for a bathroom with a modern tub. A modern tub is more relaxing because it uses heat and pressure to relax your body. Warm water is also therapeutic and can help widen your blood vessels to improve blood circulation. In addition, the water pressure has a massaging effect and eases tired and aching muscles. 

Modern hot tubs cost from around $12,000 to as much as $26,000 depending on the features you want. Please note that these numbers may vary on your location as well. The most expensive models have two levels with the top level being a small pool and the lower level a conventional hot tub. There are hot tubs with power jet systems that allow you to control the level of water pressure so you can get a relaxing massage. Get in touch with your building designer to ensure that your bathroom floor can provide enough support for your modern hot tub.

Sunken tub bathroom

For a luxury bathroom renovation that leaves you with a bathroom worthy of a five-star hotel, go for a sunken tub bathroom. Unlike freestanding tubs, sunken tubs make bathrooms look seamless and classier. They are also excellent for elderly users because they make getting into and out of the tub easier. 

What’s excellent about sunken tubs is you have a wide range of materials to choose from so you can go as luxurious as you want to. There are also no limitations when it comes to shape options so you can work with a designer to develop a sunken tub that’s shaped just the way you want it.  

Jet shower system

Although hot tubs are relaxing, they’re not for everybody. If you want to relax your tired and aching muscles then a jet shower system is an excellent alternative. They are soothing and can provide instant relief if you’re suffering from backaches or muscle spasms. Jet shower systems have many configurations and it’s up to you how many jet sprays you want in your shower.

If you want to fully enjoy your jet shower system then you need a shower enclosure so you don’t get your entire bathroom wet. You can work with a bathroom renovation expert to design a classy enclosure that will complement your jet shower system.

Nature-inspired bathroom

This is a luxury bathroom renovation idea for nature lovers who cannot enjoy a hike or go to the park every day. Bring nature to your bathroom by replacing your bathroom floor with waterproof wood planks that give warmth and make your bathroom more inviting. For your shower, instead of the usual bathroom tiles, line the floor with pebbles that give your feet a massaging effect as you stand on them. Instead of a ceiling, open your shower area to the sky by installing a skylight so you can shower under the bright sun during the day or a starry sky during the night.
