Turn your bathroom into a retreat

People go to the bathroom to do their business, but is it as simple as that? Many are actually turning their bathrooms into spa-like retreats where they can pamper themselves and feel relaxed from the stresses of everyday living.

If you're one of those who's ready to turn their bathrooms into a luxury spa, choosing the right bathroom vanity and fixtures is crucial in creating that look and feel of the room. According to the Calgary Herald's Jacqueline Louis, who recently attended a bathroom showcase event, vessel sinks are definitely the trend for those hoping to have this space embody a sophisticated appeal. These types of sinks are seen as separate pieces from the bathroom vanity, giving your bathroom that perfect touch of elegance.

Another way that you can pamper yourself in your own personal spa is by installing a steam shower. Many of these enclosures available on the market are equipped with state-of-the-art technology including aromatherapy, audio players and ambient lighting, giving you that spa-like experience in the comforts of your own home.
