Embrace Wellness in the Master Bathroom

Do you love the idea of starting and ending your day in a spa-like environment that also provides health benefits as a bonus? You’re not alone.  More and more clients are requesting wellness components like a sauna or steam shower as an integral component of their master bathroom remodel. Additional design components we often recommend include comfortable benches (especially in a steam shower), heated towel racks, a fireplace and heated tile to keep your bathroom warm and inviting.

First and foremost, you’ll need space to accommodate these items. If you have a bathtub you don’t use, you may be able to repurpose that space as part of your wellness sanctuary. A sauna next to the shower is the ideal scenario as it allows you to freshen up directly after sweating out those toxins. We recommend a separate water closet, as these allow two people to share the space while maintaining privacy. Even a glass door like the one featured in our Remodeling Challenge article can afford the necessary discretion while not relinquishing much space in your design.

Choose non-porous materials like those that would be included in a wet-room, and be aware that both a sauna and steam shower require upgraded electrical and plumbing systems.
