The 90’s were a time of large master bathrooms. Complete with oversize step-in whirlpool tubs, tiny gold-trimmed showers, low double vanities, and often “fun” pastel colors. We’ve all seen them, and it’s possible you even still have one. They were often somewhat out of scale, with high ceilings, and also tough to keep warm. If you’re done with the 90’s and thinking about a master bathroom remodel, read on to get inspired.

The “must haves” of bathrooms now (thank goodness) are much better than what we thought we needed in decades past. We’re seeing four recurring spa-like design elements in today’s master bathroom remodeling projects.

4 Master Bath Must Haves for 2022


1. First up: the ultimate in rest and relaxation — a soaking tub! With or without whirlpool air jets, a soaking tub takes up less space than its predecessor and uses much less  water. These tubs fit easily into any size master bath, and create a welcome escape of comfort and warmth.

2. Second, and the perfect companion to soaking tubs — spa showers! The latest shower systems bring endless possibilities to create your perfect personal shower experience. Body sprays, steam, rain shower heads, music, mood lights, tv’s, the list goes on. Customizing your shower adds a touch of luxury to complete your home spa.

3. Next up: custom double sink vanities with plenty of counter space. Keep the peace in your bathroom with separate but equal storage. No more fighting for space. Sinks and vanities at counter height are also a must have in your master bathroom remodel. Stay organized with specialized storage for personal items, laundry, and linens. Need a touch of extra luxury? Add a warming drawer to keep towels toasty. Step into warmth right out of the tub.

4. Last but not least: the most popular amenity our clients ask for — heated floors. Warm toes any time of day or night is a must have! No more cold feet when you’re up in the middle of the night or when you step out of shower. The perfect final touch for the warmth and luxury you deserve!
