However, just stocking all these items in your bathroom will not make it glamorous. One needs to match the color of the bathtub with that of the walls. Either both can be of the same color or of contrasting colors. Then concentrate on the bath linen, the tiles, and the washbasin. At such times, please be aware that color therapy works everywhere. The bathroom can also be Wi-Fi enabled and fit with a wireless phone. One can also stock up some spa essentials like essential oils, face scrubs, aromatherapy oils, etc. That leaves out a sauna. A hot shower can substitute this. Doing all this will make the bathroom so glamorous that it will be difficult for the user to stay away from it.

By providing luxury bathrooms to their customers, builders are providing them with what they require. However, it is worth mentioning here that one need not break the bank in order to glamorize the bathroom. One only needs to provide those things that are required as per one’s lifestyle and leave out the rest.
