The Top 11 Elements to Create a Spa Bath

Nothing says luxury like a well-designed master bath. With endless options to choose from, like aromatherapy in the tub and adding a custom heated warming drawer for towels, I have put together a few key elements essential to create a spa-like space in your home. For a quick guide on all things spa baths, I am breaking down my top 11 features to create the ultimate Luxury Spa Bath.  

Steam Shower

Who says you need to go to the spa to get away? Putting a steam shower in your master bath will allow you to relax and relieve stress in the privacy of your own home. The mental and physical benefits from this addition stretch deep, from improved circulation to increased recovery and stress management, this is a must-have in any spa bath. 

aromatherapy and chromatherapy tub

This brings me to the next items on our list, aromatherapy and chromatherapy in the tub. Armoatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote well-being. These aromatic oils can improve the health of the mind, body and, spirit. Coupled with chromatherapy or the addition of soothing colored lighting in your bath, these two make the perfect pair for your next remodel. 

Towel Warming Drawer

After you indulge in your steam shower or chromatherapy bath, reach for a warm towel and robe from your warming drawer.  Beat the post-shower chill with the luxurious sensation of a warm towel for a feel-good, relaxing sensory experience.  And, you can throw a damp towel in the drawer, and it will dry quickly, keeping it fresh longer. 

Wall-mounted towel warmer

If you don’t have space in your vanity to build a warming drawer, a wall-mounted towel warmer is a wonderful alternative. This sleek addition will provide you with the same benefits as the drawer and will hydronically heat your towels upwards of 165 degrees. 

Light up makeup mirror

A light-up, magnified makeup mirror allows for perfect makeup applications and grooming, especially as we age. Sleek and modern, it will enable you to see yourself clearly without the shadows cast by traditional overhead lighting.

Light up Toe kick

Toe-kick lighting quickly adds an element of luxury to the space, lighting up your night trips to the bathroom or when you are looking for a nice relaxing bath but don’t want to put all of your overhead lights on. The soft glow enhances the spa experience and adds a sexy vibe on its own.

Modern Medicine cabinet 

If outdated and old-fashioned are what comes to mind when you think of medicine cabinets, think again! In today’s market, medicine cabinets can be the ultimate luxurious elements, with outlets, night lights, and touch lighting. Now you can charge your phone and plug in your hot tools with ease. Some include magnetic organization for our beauty tools and even refrigeration for face creams and rollers. 

Vanity tv mirror

If you are someone who spends long hours in the bathroom pampering and prepping, this next item might be a must-have in your future remodel- a television integrated your mirror.  From the sleek, minimal glass you can tune into your favorite channel as a perfect addition for anyone looking for a bit of entertainment while bathing or getting ready without a cumbersome device. 

Radiant floors and shower seat

Next on the list, we have radiant floors and shower seats. The time in our bath is meant to relax and unwind and radiant flooring will heat your room with consistent and efficent warmth, and feel so good underfoot. If you are looking to go the extra mile, install radiant under your shower seat for added warmth and comfort. 

Heated toilet seat and bidet

While it may not be the most luxurious item to discuss, the toilet is essential and can be an item with advanced features. For clients looking for the ultimate escape, I recommend adding a toilet seat warmer with bidet functions to create a small moment that has a big impact on how you feel. 

Surround Audio

Last, but certainly not least, an audio sound system in the bath. Celling speakers will provide you with the perfect surround sound, so you can hear with or without your shower running and allow you to drown out any unwanted noise. Put on your favorite genre or a soothing spa-like playlist! 


There you have it, that completes my top 11 must-haves for the ultimate spa-like bath. I hope you consider implementing a few of these in your next remodel, and as always, I would love to see your design!
