How to Decide on a Spa Bathroom Design That is Best for Your Home

If you are building or remodeling a home, you are probably designing or redesigning one or more bathrooms. When designing a bathroom, the key is to look beyond the bathing space. Does the style and color scheme of the spa bathroom design you’re considering blend with the rest of the house? It doesn’t have to match exactly, but it should blend and complement the rest of your home design. If the master bedroom walls are painted a calming seaside blue and you go for a black and white bathroom, the contrast will not create a smooth transition between the two spaces. Unless you plan to change the colors in your bedroom as well, you will want to choose a color scheme and design for your master bath that offers the eye a seamless transition between the bedroom and the bathroom.


When choosing a spa bathroom design for your master, main, or guest bathroom, remember that one crucial element of any spa bathroom design is the bathtub, and it’s an element that is often mishandled. Many homeowners fail to take accurate measurements, and choose a tub that is either too large or too small for the space, or does not blend with the overall design. Make sure the tub you choose does not overwhelm the space by being too large, or leave you cramped and uncomfortable without enough room to relax at bath time.


Another element of your spa bathroom design is the actual layout of the bathroom. No matter how upscale and elegant, every bathroom must deal with plumbing drains, water lines, and vent stacks. Floor plans for bathrooms usually fall into one-, two- or three-wet-wall layouts. A one-wall layout lines up the sink, toilet, and shower along one wall as in this bathroom. Although cost-effective, it is also very limiting. With a two-wall layout comes flexibility. The sink and toilet can be separated from the tub and shower, rather than having them all lined up on one wall. The three-wall layout is the most adaptable layout, but also the most complicated and expensive. Working with the professional designers and architects at Diamond Spas can help you make the wisest choices for your available bathroom space.


To decide on a spa bathroom design that is best for your home, remember to:

  1. Consider your lifestyle
  2. Make choices that blend with your current home’s aesthetic
  3. Blend or complement color schemes with adjoining rooms
  4. Take accurate measurements when shopping for a tub
  5. Have a bathroom layout already chosen and approved
