The trend of creating luxurious, escape-like bathrooms where homeowners can relax, unwind and de-stress remains popular.
"Today, [homeowners] are making their bathroom as nice a living space as the rest of their home - if not better," designer Suzanne Maviano told Kohler.com.
New, high-tech items make achieving a spa-like bathroom easier than ever, especially if money is no object. Kohler's Numi toilet, for example, is billed as a luxury bathroom product with a price tag to match. The toilet that features an "intelligent auto flush" that senses how long the user has been sitting and flushes accordingly, customized seat warming, an air vent that keeps the user's feet warm, audio hook-ups, a bidet and a sensor that automatically puts the seat down when the user walks away costs nearly $6,400, according to the Columbus Dispatch.
"No matter your budget, adding little luxuries to the bathroom, whether high-tech or purely aesthetic, can make a huge difference in terms of your experience," suggests Kohler.com.
