Transform Your Bathroom

By Tina Gleisner

With our hectic schedules nowadays the only place left where we can go undisturbed is the bathroom. This is the place where we can do what we want and say what we want without fear of someone hearing or seeing us. It is hard doing what you want to do inside your bathroom when someone else is outside waiting for yout o come out. There are plenty of things that could be done inside the bathroom especially for women. Women spend more time in the bathroom than men. Women usually make their bathroom as their “comfort room” literally and when they come out from the bathroom it is as if they got a new massage.

Although this could be a problem if we have only one bathroom in the house which is very unlikely, as homes usually have more than one.

Which brings us to the question of how many bathrooms we need in our home. Certainly we need one bathroom or most specifically one toilet. However, most houses have a master bathroom, and another common bathroom.

In the past the average home contained only one bathroom where people had to get in line to use it. Nowadays, the average home has 2 to 2.5 bathrooms with bigger homes having 3 or more bathrooms. This has influenced more people to remodel their bathrooms, especially the master bathroom. Besides the obvious, bathrooms have been taking on new uses. Your master bathroom can be your private escape and can provide you with additional areas of relaxation. Here are some ideas that you can use when you think of remodelling your master bathroom:

Your bathroom can be transformed into a bathroom spa. Here you can have your own spa, soaking tub, steam shower and other amenities designed to your liking.

* Another idea can be a bathroom gym. The bathroom gym may contain sports equipment, a flat screen tv and of course a music system that will add to your total gym experience.

* Bathroom with a private den. Here you can read your paper, listen to music and relax without having to worry about others.

* For ladies, a miniature home beauty salon in the bathroom is perfect. Ladies love going to the salon and having your own personal salon where you can have your beauty regimens is total bliss. Having your makeup done, creating the perfect outfit within arms reach will truly make your bathroom a place you will never want to leave.
