The master bathroom should be an oasis for relaxation. The main bathroom and guest bathrooms can be more practical, but your ensuite should feature all the luxuries and design features you’ve always dreamed of having.
Renovations Unlimited Ltd. in Edmonton shares 5 ways to really enhance your master bath:
Choose good lighting.
Lighting will play a major role in how the bathroom looks and functions. You’ll want good task lighting around the mirror to make getting ready in the morning easier, but the ambiance and any task light should be subtle and soft. If you have a walk-in shower, make sure your general contractor installs waterproof lighting in there too. You don’t want to be showering in the dark!
Splurge on the bathtub.
If relaxing in a bathtub at the end of a long day sounds like heaven to you, treat yourself to a great bathtub. Everyone is different. Perhaps you want a classic clawfoot tub for those deep soaks. Or, a jetted tub for two might better meet your needs. If you are going to renovate the bathroom for relaxation, make sure you get the bathtub you really want.
Select bathroom tile that puts you at ease.
Modern master bathroom colour schemes are typically white, light or earth tone colours. If you want the space for relaxing, skip the bright, bold colours or save them for the bathroom downstairs. For your master bathroom, choose tiles and textures that will help you to relax. Soft blues, greens, taupe, light grey and white will all put your mind and body at ease.

Go low flow.
Swap out your existing faucets for low-flow versions. Low flow sink faucets and shower heads have gone down in price and they’ll help you save money by conserving water. You won’t notice a difference in water pressure, but you’ll notice a difference on your utility bill. You can also get a low flow toilet. This eco-friendly fixture can save you hundreds of gallons of water a year.
Bring in natural light.
The amount of natural light in your personal oasis is very important. If you can enlarge your bathroom window, assuming privacy isn’t compromised, do. You can also consider installing a skylight or tubular skylights. These will direct the bright, natural sunlight into your space. Natural light is good for your mental health and can reduce stress and anxiety.
