No five-star hotel is complete without a gloriously extravagant bathroom stocked with fluffy towels and designed with luxe accents. It’s the perfect sanctuary for self-care, pampering and relaxation.

Luckily, you don’t have to book a reservation to enjoy such lavish accommodations. With a few interior design updates, you can recreate the upscale look of a modern hotel bathroom at home. Get inspired with these 5 tips:


Embrace Neutral Shower Walls

Gone are the days of stark, all-white hotel bathrooms. This minimalist design is elegant, but it comes with the risk of feeling impersonal. Instead, opt for shower walls in another neutral shade like Ice™ Grey to add a subtle wash of color. As the perfect modern alternative to white, this cool grey adds a touch of luxury to the space. For a bold twist, pair Ice Grey with dark fixtures like Matte Black or Oil-Rubbed Bronze.


Add an Elegant Sliding Glass Shower Door

Frameless glass shower doors are super popular in luxury hotel bathrooms. Their sleek, modern design makes the space look larger and brighter, creating a polished, high-end appearance. Choose between barn door, sliding door and pivot door designs, and then select a complementary handle type and hardware finish, such as Bright Polished Silver.

Pair Showerheads & Body Sprays

The best luxury hotel bathrooms allow you to customize your shower experience with showerheads, body sprays and more. Indulge in the drenching action of a showerhead, full-body hydrotherapy from body sprays or the refreshing downpour of a rainhead for a spa-like treatment at home. Learn more about the benefits of different types of showerheads.

Some elite hotels are equipped with digital shower systems that give you control over your shower settings with a touch of a button, from toggling between spray outlets to changing the water temperature.


Upgrade to a Storage-Rich Vanity

As seen in upscale hotels, you can minimize clutter throughout the bathroom with storage-rich styling spaces that have lots of drawers, cabinet space or open shelves. These types of vanities help you keep your countertops clear, but ensure your important items are stored nearby for easy access as well.

Plus, don’t forget about storage in the shower. Invest in shower accessories like a Shower Locker or Shower Barre to keep your grooming products organized.


Brighten Your Space with Proper Lighting

Whether you’re in a hotel or at home, good bathroom lighting makes a huge difference. Task lighting in the shower and vanity areas makes grooming tasks easier, while ambient lighting in alcoves and niches creates a soft glow for relaxation. Use light fixtures like sconces and hanging lights for an all-out glamour look.
