Merge It For Other Activities

People are willing to put an exercise room in their bedroom and living room but never think about putting one in the bathroom. The truth is that you can add room for activities in any room. The bathroom is no exception.

But it’s not just exercise rooms. You can add anything in a bathroom that’s big enough. If there is no toilet and it’s just a large half-bath, it’s even better. It could become a rec room in a sense with a shower nearby! 

If you do put exercise equipment in your bathroom, then consider adding more relaxing space. A foot massager can do wonders for your feet after a workout or after a long day. Find the best foot massager for your life.

Statement Vanity

Thinking outside the box when it comes to vanities could be exactly what you need for a fancy bathroom. You can get a funky mirror, a solid stone sink, or a fancy table for it all to sit on. It just may become the focal point of the room.

When it comes to mirrors, there are tons of options that can make your bathroom look amazing. Backlit mirrors are always fun, and so are quirky geometric shapes, especially for a fancy contemporary bathroom. 

A lot of families are cutting their own mirrors now. You can create your own mirror by cutting a mirror and putting it back together in a custom shape. These are super expensive to buy, so doing it yourself can save you a lot of money.

Walk-In Shower With Tub

You’ve heard of walk-in showers, which are amazing, but have you heard of a walk-in shower with a bathtub? All you have to do is add space for a tub in the shower and there are endless possibilities at your fingertips.

This also keeps your bathroom much cleaner and safer. No more water being dripped on the floor or puddles left for someone else to slip on. And cleaning is a breeze because all of the water is kept in one place.

Wardrobes And Storage Cabinets

You can actually take cabinets that were made for the bedroom or kitchen and add them to your bathroom. They can hold so much more than standard bathroom cabinets and look much more sophisticated too.

Kitchen cabinets are ideal because they often have glass doors. This can help the cabinet look like it belongs and let you see how many towels and supplies you have left at all times. Plus, glass always works well in the bathroom. 

Glass Wall Divider

A glass wall divider can really make your bathroom feel special. You can either use it to separate your toilet from the rest of the bathroom or use it to separate a bathroom from a master bedroom. This will make the bathroom and bedroom look bigger.

Glass wall dividers are so versatile and are something everyone should be aware of. Consider adding one to your bedroom, kitchen, living room, or bathroom. If you do add one to your bathroom, think carefully before deciding where to place it.

Walk-In Closet

Walk-in closets are no longer just for the bedroom. You can add them to any room if you want extra space. Adding them to the bathroom actually makes a lot of sense considering that’s where most people change clothes. 

A great way to use a walk-in closet is to connect the closet to the bedroom and bathroom or connect the bathroom to the bedroom and closet. This will make it a Jack and Jill bathroom, allowing couples to use it any time. 

Solid Stone/Marble Tub

A solid rock tub can look so perfect in any bathroom. You can get any natural color and any texture that you want. It feels amazing to lay in and can even be purchased as a jacuzzi tub. Talk about a spa day!

Installing a solid stone or marble tub can be difficult because it’s insanely heavy. Just one tub can weigh up to a thousand pounds! That’s not something you can get into your house without a professional team of movers/builders. 

If you’re good with concrete, you can actually make your own concrete tub. This is no easy task, but if you have the experience, you can create a bathtub that’s worth up to $10,000! Now that’s quite an investment. 

Floating Vanities

I cannot stress just how popular floating furniture is these days. From shelves to tables, you can have any type of floating furniture that you want. It is the future as it appears to be magical in the way that it floats in the air. 

Floating shelves and vanities aren’t difficult to create yourself. Just secure the back of the cabinet to the wall and remove the legs. You may need two people to do it, so grab a friend and convert your vanity today. 

If you’re not the DIY type, then know that floating furniture isn’t that expensive. These days it costs about the same as standard furniture, so if you’re going to buy a shelf anyway, make it a floating one. 

Fur Accents

It may not seem like fur goes in the bathroom, but as long as your careful, it can really make your bathroom look fancy. If you do add fur, don’t put it where you will walk on it after you bathe or shower. 

Fur shouldn’t get wet as it won’t be fluffy or easy to clean if saturated. Plus, the fur will mat! Chandeliers also have the same effect so pairing them together is ideal, but either one can be left out if you don’t want to break up the focus. 

Multiple Mirrors

Most people will add one mirror over their vanity and then forget the rest. But you can truly add as many mirrors as you want to a bathroom and suffer no ill effects. A full-length mirror is a great addition, but there are other options. 

Using mirrors to create a work of art is ideal. Get small mirrors in shapes that you like that will accent the larger mirror. You can backlight them as well, or add frames of different colors to bring your entire bathroom together.

Alternating Patterns

Alternating shelves and tables that yous tack can give an alluring eclectic look to any room. It’s easy to do in the corner of the bathroom where the vanity will be. One side can be for getting ready and the other side for something else.

This is perfect for a bathroom shared by more than one person because they can each have their own space a little bit of privacy. However, the added space can also be reserve for folding laundry in a bathroom/laundry room fusion.

Ask anyone who has a rain shower head and they’ll tell you they don’t regret it. An overhead rain shower head is the most luxurious shower head you can find. And they aren’t as expensive as you may think. 

A rain showerhead may be the most affordable thing you can add to a fancy bathroom. The effects are instant and they change more than just the appearance. This is an addition that you can actually enjoy every day. 

You can actually get showerheads that rain down over the entire shower. These are feet wide in diameter and are not cheap. But they are worth every penny for those who love getting stuck out in the rain. 

Bedroom/Bathroom Combo

It may seem silly to put a bathroom in your fancy bedroom, but hear me out. You don’t have to add a sink or a toilet to your bedroom. The point is to create an escape all in one room. Take a bath, and go to bed instantly.

The setup is both romantic and practical, which is always a good thing. You can create an amazing escape with your favorite smells, sounds, and lighting. Just don’t add a mini-fridge or you’ll never want to leave your room. 

Keep It Simple

To keep things looking as clean and simple as possible, get white appliances, walls, and floors. Then, add glass shelving, vanities, and tables. You will either fall in love with this look or it won’t be for you.

The people who do love this look can’t get enough of it! The look is so appealing and stress-free. You really can’t feel overwhelmed with a white bathroom with glass accents, it’s designed to keep distractions away. 

Gold, Gold, Gold

If there is one color you should add to your fancy bathroom, it’s gold. Most bathrooms have some metallic color in the hardware, so why not make that color gold? It can look dated if done wrong,  but if done right, it looks as fancy as can be.

A tip for making the gold design look modern is to make sure the rest of the bathroom is clean and up-to-date. Choose neutral colors with clean lines. Add geometric shapes and use updated showers, sinks, and tubs.
