In a world of constant demands and fast-paced living, more and more people are turning to home for relaxation. This translates into bathrooms that provide a spa-like experience. Technology has brought design into a new age of bathrooms, complete with programmable showers, touch-activated faucets, light therapy tubs, and countless luxuries.

Bathrooms have transcended the ordinary and become a more integral part of the home, taking on spa-inspired elements. Free-standing chromatherapy tubs are outfitted with colored lights that are said to balance the body’s energy for ultimate relaxation.
Digital, programmable showers with remotes to control temperature, water pressure, time on and various other features accompany specialized shower heads that make the shower a complete spa-like experience. Imagine programming your shower to turn on and heat up before you even get out of bed!

Showers are now built with linear drains that run along the edge of the shower instead of the center, resulting in no threshold for a streamlined flow from floor to shower area. You no longer have to step up over a ledge to the shower, and this makes cleaning easier since the shower floor and main floor are on the same level.
Vessel sinks are still popular in the modern bath and are mounted on stylish vanities. Quartz surfaces top the chart for luxury countertops. Touch-activated faucets make cleaning up a breeze without the mess. Wall-mount sculptural faucets are an appealing design for the modern bath.
Additional luxuries such as towel warmers, fireplaces and heated floors contribute to the overall spa experience. The new age of bathrooms is all about soothing, harmonious design with all the luxuries of a home spa.
