How to Design & Remodel a Hotel-Quality Guest Bathroom
When guests stay the night, you want them to feel welcome and comfortable in your home. A big part of this is providing a beautiful, functional bathroom for your guests to use. Here’s what to include in your guest bathroom remodel if you want it to feel as luxurious as a five-star hotel.
Plenty of Storage & Counter Space
One characteristic that sets hotel-quality bathrooms apart is their spaciousness. Long counters give travelers plenty of space to set their bags. Deep drawers and empty cabinets offer the additional option to unpack for an extended stay. Your guest bathroom should include these features as well.
Artificial & Natural Lighting
Every bathroom needs bright general lighting to facilitate getting ready in the morning. Many hotels take this one step further, and so should your guest bathroom. Consider the many flexible artificial lighting options available to you, such as installing a beautiful chandelier or sidelights on the vanity mirror. Rope lighting under the vanity or along coves in the ceiling provides a lovely accent that doubles as a useful nightlight for midnight bathroom trips.
Then, if the guest bath is located on an exterior wall, you have the opportunity to bring natural light into the room. This is a luxury many hotels are unable to provide, but it’s one you should include if you can nonetheless. Just remember to add blinds or etched glass for privacy if you decide to install a window over the tub or in the shower.
Stocked Linen Closet
Many people travel with their own toiletries, but it’s always possible to forget something. As a prepared host, you should be ready by setting out travel-size soap, shampoo, lotion, and other essentials on the bathroom counter. Also, be sure to have several bath towels laundered and folded neatly in the linen closet. Other essentials to stock your guest bathroom with include hand soap, hand towels, and extra rolls of toilet paper.
Versatile Showering & Bathing Options
One important feature of any hotel bathroom is the ability to accommodate guests with many different needs. If you have able-bodied adult guests, they may prefer to shower. But if you have children or older adults staying over, a tub may be necessary. To suit everyone’s needs, include both a showering and bathing option in your guest bathroom.
It’s easy to overlook this feature, but an unventilated bathroom means that every shower fogs up the mirror, promotes mold growth, and makes the adjacent room feel muggy and stuffy. When remodeling your guest bathroom, make sure it has an exhaust fan or window for ventilation purposes. Not only will this make your house guests feel more comfortable, but it will help your fixtures last longer by preventing issues with rust, rot, and mold.
In typical bathrooms, the only textiles are towels, rugs, and a shower curtain. However, if you want your guest bath to feel like a five-star suite, consider bringing in some designer accents. Lavish waterproof throw pillows surrounding the tub provide a cushiony feel. Heavy curtains flanking the window make the bath feel as cozy as the living room. And a thick, memory foam bath mat is far superior to stepping out of the shower onto cold tile.
