If you have flipped through the pages of a home décor magazine lately or looked online at new homes for sale, you have probably noticed that bathrooms have become much larger and more elaborately outfitted. The bathroom lighting is often adjustable, there are towel warmers, spa tubs, showers with multiple showerheads and all sorts of other amenities previously found only in high-end resorts and upscale hotels. It can be pretty discouraging when you are faced with a dated or mundane bathroom but with a little bit of creativity and some savvy shopping there are plenty of solutions that won’t break the bank.
A handheld showerhead is a great example of a spa amenity that is now available for home use. There are so many things you can do with a handheld showerhead – shampoo hair, bathe children, wash pets, water plants or clean the tub or shower enclosure. Add a shower seat or bench and enjoy a refreshing water massage or simply shower while seated. Most handheld showerheads can be installed without the assistance of a plumber and they really enhance the overall shower experience.
Deluxe Bathroom Cabinet Drawer – Bronze
Purchase this Deluxe Bathroom Cabinet Drawer in Bronze color from BedBathandBeyond.com for $19.99. It’s also available at Amazon.com though for a noticeably higher price $24.99.
Towel warmers are something else you used to find only in a spa or fancy hotel – now you can choose from countertop, freestanding or wall-mounted units and enjoy hot fluffy towels after every bath or shower. The addition of bath and shower furniture in naturally water resistant teak is another way to transform your boring bathroom into a spa-like oasis; look for a teak shower seat, bench, floor mat or towel rack.
