A slanted style tub offers the most comfort for the neck and back. Faucets located in the middle will allow for more relaxation. If you need to select a small tub due to lack of space, be sure this tub has a nice depth to it. If you are installing a soaker tub, you may need a larger water heater.
A separate shower and tub set up is desirable if there is room. There are various types of shower fixures including single-head, adjustable nozzles, rain showers, dual showerheads and hand held devices. You may want to splurge on body sprays for a full-body massage. If the shower is connected to the tub, consider installing a curbed shower rod, which will add space to your shower.
A quality toilet will cause less problems in the future. You will want a maximum performance tested commode. (Look for a MaP score of 500 or more.) Focus on the flush capabilities since many toilets are low-flush (eco-friendly). If you have the room, a toilet room offers privacy.
There are so many options for sinks. You will need to consider how much space you have and what your storage needs are. Pedestal sinks are best for half baths as they offer no storage, but their slim silhouette is perfect for smaller spaces. Bowl sinks are popular, but they take up more counter space and are difficult to keep clean. Double sinks are desirable in a master bath.
Bathrooms are notorious for clutter. Towels, lotions, shampoos, soap, cleaning supplies – the list goes on and on. Wall shelving can help with storage. You may want to also consider built-in niches inside the bath and shower area for soaps and shampoos.
The floor will get wet, so porcelain or glazed tiles with matte finishes or textured surfaces are best.
