If you have stayed in a fine hotel lately, looked through the pages of a fancy home décor magazine or noticed any real estate ads for better homes, you have no doubt observed that bathrooms have become very elaborate. More often than not they feature vessel or double sinks, bidets, towel warmers, spa tubs and multiple showerheads; it can be discouraging to look at your own bathroom in comparison to what you see elsewhere but the reality is that with some savvy shopping you can enjoy many of the same amenities in your own home.

Take a look online at the websites of the major bath and bedding stores Macys.com, Overstock.com and others because you know they will stand behind what they sell. It’s easy to shop online for ideas and inspiration any time of the day or night from the comfort and safety of home plus you can compare features and benefits without wasting time and money driving all over town. Shopping online lets you get the best possible deals and the goods are delivered directly to your door so you don’t have to lug stuff from the store to the car to the house.
Modern bath items
Neomodern Dual-Sided Mirror, $287.99 – www.target.com
Shop for modern items like towel warmers, wall mirrors and sconces and more – the selection is endless when you browse online. Towel warmers can be found in many versions – wall mounted, freestanding and countertop models – so there is sure to be one that is just right for your needs. While multiple showerheads may be too big for the budget, it is easy to install a handheld showerhead without the assistance of a plumber and the results are both practical and enjoyable.
