Perhaps you have stayed in a fine hotel or in an upscale bed and breakfast where everything is first class – the bathroom fixtures and mirrors sparkle, the towel racks bear monogrammed hand towels and there is a selection of fragrant soaps and a pile of plush terry cloth bath towels just waiting for you to partake of. It can be delightful to pamper yourself and enjoy such a relaxing experience and there is simply no reason you can’t treat yourself just as well every day instead of only on a special occasion. All it takes is some savvy shopping and a little imagination – you can transform your own bathroom into a spa-like oasis.

Practical additions for shower
Most better bathrooms feature a handheld showerhead in addition to a conventional showerhead. With a handheld showerhead you can enjoy a relaxing water massage or shampoo your hair with ease. Add a shower seat or bench to enjoy bathing while seated. A handheld showerhead makes it easy to bathe children, wash pets, water plants or even clean the tub or shower enclosure; most can be installed without the assistance of a plumber.
Installing Heated Towel Racks
The installation of a heated towel rack is another luxury that will pay dividends for years to come. Wrap yourself in a hot fluffy towel after bathing and enjoy a quiet moment; heated towel racks are both luxurious and practical. A heated towel rack can be used to warm blankets or baby clothes, dry fine washables and swimwear or warm damp mittens and scarves; they help to reduce the possibility of mold and mildew because towels dry faster.
