Today’s custom homes are as much about form as function, as homebuyers look for ways to make their living spaces more luxurious.

For instance, instead of simply being a functional space to take care of life’s necessities, people tend to want their bathrooms to be a luxurious getaway, a high-end spa in the privacy of their own homes.

Custom homebuilders in Nashville, such as Arthur Rutenberg Homes, are happy to accommodate these features into customers’ home designs. We know building a home is a big investment, and that you want to design a living space that you’ll be able to enjoy far into the future. Consider these five trends to design the ideal, spa-like bathroom that will fit perfectly with your lifestyle.

  1. Relaxing spaces: After a long day at work, staring at a computer screen, your bathroom can be a private space for you to retreat, relax, and recharge. Popular trends include free-standing soaking tubs, saunas or steam showers, and whirlpools.
  2. Special showers: More than just a place to rinse away the dirt of the day, showers are becoming more of an experience. From open, walk-in showers with overhead sprays, to large spaces with benches or built in seats, lots of shelves, and radiant, heated floors, to curbless showers that are easy to walk in and out of – these popular styles might make it too hard to leave your shower at all!
  3. Neutral tones: Lack of color continues to be a popular trend in the bathroom, and it shows no signs of going away soon. Sleek shades of gray, beige, and white contribute to the spa-like atmosphere of modern bathrooms.
  4. Natural accents: from coastal design with driftwood elements, to natural wood floors and vanities, families want to bring nature inside to enjoy in their bathrooms. Some are even including living walls to bring a little bit of fresh foliage into the home.
  5. Comfort and storage: No one wants their home bathroom to feel like a public restroom, and that’s reflected in the choice of fixtures families make. From comfort-height toilets and vanities, to sleek cabinets that provide plenty of storage, there are plenty of options on the market to customize a bathroom.
