How to Design & Remodel a Hotel-Quality Guest Bathroom

Posted on: April 27, 2018

Do you want your guests to be as comfortable and welcome as possible? Do you want to treat them to all of the elegance, relaxation, and luxury of an upscale hotel without them having to actually check into one? It’s a good goal for a good host, and it might be easier than you’re anticipating. Bath, Kitchen, and Tile Center can set you on the right path with this simple set of tips and guidelines.

A Hotel-Quality Bathroom Is the Exact Opposite of Excess

When designing a bathroom for guests the focus should lie firmly on quality and not quantity. You want to choose your amenities and design carefully, aiming to please and soothe a guest rather than overwhelm them. This, however, makes your job easier rather than harder. What do you want out of a grand hotel stay? We would suggest the following:

Plan for Plenty of Storage

The idea of a guest tripping over every single toiletry and appliance they brought with them is the antithesis of your goals here. To ensure this doesn’t happen, storage needs to be a primary goal, and it needs to be incorporated smartly to avoid looking bulky and unattractive. Custom cabinetry can give you a huge advantage here, allowing you to choose designs and styles that suit your theme while ensuring they offer plenty of space. Recessed storage is also a wise option, and never neglect vertical storage like shelving for added visual appeal and space to place necessities.

Lighting Should be Plentiful, but Tasteful

Turning down the lights for a relaxing bath is absolutely grand, but it should be an option and not the standard state of the room. Lighting preferences differ from guest to guest, but overall visibility is very important to complete a daily routine. The use of dimmer switches on lights is highly advised, and we would recommend a combination of overhead task lighting and additional lights via wall-mounted pendant or lantern-style lights to keep things feeling luxurious without leaving a guest in the dark.

If You Splurge on Anything, Make it the Bath

Choosing excellent linens is a great touch, and a swanky sink can be something to adore both for you and your weary traveler. But it will all be for nothing if they go to bathe or shower only to find a fiberglass box with a warehouse-standard fixture. It needn’t always be a spa-style jet bath in order to be ideal (though it’s certainly not a bad idea), but designing a bath/shower with plenty of space and design flair can make all the right impressions.

On The Practical Side, Don’t Forget Ventilation

Nothing ruins a good bath or morning ritual faster than a dense fog of humidity coating the mirrors, the toilet, and everything else in the room. Proper ventilation and exhaust fans can add even more comfort, and will help your guest stay comfortable when they want to spend time in your hotel-quality bathroom.
