They come with a variety of exterior finishes such as hand-rubbed antique gold, 24 caret yellow gold, brushed nickel, handcrafted wrought iron and many others.
Large Bathtub – A large luxurious bathtub is a must for your new bathroom design. One drawback is they are very expensive and do require a lot of space. There are a wide variety of bathtub amenities to choose from. Some tubs allow you to touch a button and fill your tub with a spectrum of dramatic color for a soothing feeling. If you would like to add some romance to your bathroom design, a claw foot tub is a great addition. It brings that feeling of Victorian charm into your bathroom surrounding. Another choice is a soft tub. This tub becomes soft when hot water is added to it to provide you with total relaxation. There are also tubs that come equipped with waterfalls or jets.
Entertainment – Hi definition television isn’t just for your living room anymore. Televisions are showing up in bathrooms with speakers built into the tile of your shower or bath. For the ultimate experience you can purchase tubs built for two containing jets and a flat screen television with a floating remote! How would you like to shave or put on your makeup while watching television at the same time? Another great addition is televisions that are built into your mirrors. The speakers are self-contained within the mirror and make a great addition to your bathroom design.
Ceramic Tile Floor – Ceramic tile floors are very artistic and a beautiful improvement to your new bathroom design. Be very conscious of the color you use in your bathroom. Begin with a neutral color and add bright accents through accent tiles and accessories.
Fog Free Mirrors – No one likes to have to wipe off the mirrors multiple times after a long, hot shower. These systems cause your mirror to warm slightly so they remain crystal clear while you are taking a shower or bath.
