There is nothing more relaxing then coming off of a long trip when staying with friends and retreating to a welcoming guest bathroom. What once used to be an afterthought of the home is now a place where guests and homeowners alike enjoy this intimate room. Guest baths that have a spa aesthetic are even more luxurious due to the colors, finishes and amenities. Here are tips to make your guest bathroom the destination spot enjoyed by guests in your home.
Infusing color from nature: Inspiring color can change any room. To create the feeling of a spa, think of colors derived from nature. A combination of soft blues, calming greens, and warm browns will catapult your guests into a nature-inspired bathroom. Use ceramic tile, clean-lined fixtures and plenty of luxurious finishes to unite the color themes. Dark hardwood flooring or a pristine white subway tile wall can be stunning.

Treating your guests like royalty: The feeling of when you stay in a luxury hotel for vacation is the same one you’d like to bottle up and offer to your guests. Guest bathrooms that offer organization baskets, rolled towels, and ‘forgotten’ toiletries nearby are always welcomed. If designing your guest bathroom, consider choosing vanities that have storage and display areas. Countertop space is essential, too! Guests should be able to lay out personal belongings, while still enjoying the decorative display around the vanity. Choose bathroom amenities that will allow for beautiful organization and display.

Your guests deserve a relaxing bathroom that reminds them of visiting a well-appointed spa. From the soothing colors you choose for the interior to the thoughtful organization, and gorgeous finishes throughout the bath. A basket with a bathrobe, slippers, and extra plush towels will be the crowning touch on your inviting guest bathroom.
