Create a Bathroom Retreat

Posted by:

The need and desire for an out-of-the-way retreat is as old as time itself, and the newest bathroom trends incorporate some of the best of the timeless elements with an infusion of modern spa-inspired features, technological advances and natural materials.

At Kansas City Remodel we understand that the pace of life rarely slows and that too many frantic days in a row can find you needing an escape. While we can’t actually slow the hands of time, the bathroom remodeling experts at Kansas City Remodel can help you temporarily hit the pause button with a bathroom remodel that recreates the feel of a luxury, spa-like retreat. Below are some of our favorite bathroom modernization trends.

Tile Update

Tile has always been the perfect go-to item in the bathroom, but designers are taking it up a notch with the use of brightly colored tiles, classic subway tiles and design friendly mosaic tiles. Think about creating a natural aquatic theme with glass tiles in shades of blue and green or try tiles in jewel-toned reds and purples for a rich, luxurious look. If you’re looking for a bathroom remodel update that will never go out of style, consider using classic white subway tiles.

Technology Boost

While technology may be the one thing that you’re looking to escape from in the bathroom, the newest applications may make you reconsidering a ban on all technology with the possibility of remote-controlled windows, stereos, TVs and fireplaces in the bathroom. If you’re looking for technology with a bit of old school appeal, a remote-controlled fireplace or open-flame fire feature might create the right balance between old and new.

Natural Materials

Throughout the home, natural materials never go out of style and in a wet environment like a bathroom, they can be a smart choice from the perspective of both looks and durability. Consider upgrading the floor in your bathroom with a wide-plank laminate wood floor in a rich tone for a natural look without the maintenance requirements of real wood.


Where better to escape when life hits hard than a spa? Apparently consumers agree because there have been record purchases of spa equipment for the home this year and the trend shows no sign of stopping anytime soon. Consider adding a spa-inspired element to your bathroom with a shower upgrade in the form of a frameless shower, multi-head shower, steam shower or a custom walk-in shower. Then think about adding the treat of radiant in-floor heating. These under-the-floor heating elements are a perfect treat for feet on cold winter days, and they’re also a cost-effective heating solution throughout the home.

In these busy times, a bathroom upgrade can be a great way to create a peaceful sanctuary within your home.
