Luxury designer bathrooms are not as widespread as other types, as you need a certain amount of room to create one
It has been said that one spends more time in the bathroom than any other room in their house and luxury designer bathrooms highlight this notion with homeowners willing to splurge on every single detail found inside their bathrooms.
A lot of the time, a homeowner who wants to create their own little piece of tiled heaven turns to photos of celebrity homes or memories of their favorite five-star hotel in order to find inspiration. There are also magazines that specifically cater to those interested in home design that a homeowner can flip through and these magazines may include homes of individuals who may not fall under the "celebrity" category but their residences carry a sense of lavishness and opulence.
Even a trip to home design showrooms may provide that spark of inspiration to come up with a design that a homeowner believes will exude that luxury look and feel that they desire for their bathroom.

One of the things that most luxury designer bathrooms share is the ample space available and while this does not mean that a homeowner with slightly more limited space can no longer pursue the dream of luxury, it does force them to come up with more creative solutions so as to maximize the space they have. Take for example the bathtub that can often be found in a luxury bathroom and take note that while a lot of bathrooms already have bathtubs, the kind of bathtub a homeowner chooses marks the difference between it being just a regular one that you find everywhere else and one that you could spend hours in.
A luxury bathtub is not your typical shower/bathtub combo with a shower curtain or a sliding door. These luxury bathtubs are often given a special place of prominence in a bathroom and do not necessarily have curtains or doors that separate them from everything else. They also tend to be a tad larger than shower/bathtub combos so if a homeowner's bathroom does not have a great deal of floor area to work with, they can still get a luxury bathtub but one that is more proportionate to their current bathroom area.

In order to have that lush and plush design that a homeowner is seeking, luxury designer bathrooms have other elements that may be considered "essentials" as well. A homeowner can create a more luxurious bathroom by having the highest quality cotton towels that can be heated while one is taking a shower or bath. They can also go with lavish lighting that can provide necessary brightness when needed but can also be dimmed for those moments of relaxation.
Other things that can be considered when creating this kind of bathroom is the material used for the walls and floor, the addition of a bidet next to the toilet, above-the-counter sinks, fog-free mirrors, and so on. The important thing to remember when it comes to an opulent bathroom is the quality of everything in it can be seen and felt by all.
Congratulations on your marvelous work with bathrooms. I am in the process of renovating my "small" bathroom space. I am really in a desperate mood with the bathroom. And your ideas, tips and expertise really help me to make some good decisions. THANK YOU! Keep up the good work...
