Essential Elements of Elevated Guest, Primary and Main Floor Bathrooms

We pride ourselves on being the best home builders in the business. At Gordon James, we have spent a lot of time honing our craft. When building a new home, or working on custom renovations, one of the first things you should think about is what you want your bathroom aesthetic to evoke. Read on as we discuss a few essentials to elevate your bathroom to the next level.

Guest Bathroom

Make your guests feel right at home with a touch of class and comfort by installing smart toilets (heated seats, anyone?) and touchless fixtures. Motion sensing technology will make cleaning easier and give your bathroom a modern and luxurious feel. If you are considering remodeling your home, browse our portfolio to see how we can help, and look for additional inspiration. 

Main Floor Bathroom

Consider this bathroom the most utilitarian of the three. In addition to a focus on style, the main floor bathroom should be multi-purpose as well. This is a bathroom homeowners and guests will both use, so we need it to satisfy many needs. A linen closet is a crucial add for this type of bathroom, along with a linen basket to dispose of hand towels. To evoke a modern feel, consider adding a vanity mirror with built-in lighting and a shower with a glass enclosure. 

Primary Bathroom

Out of the three, this bathroom should be the most intimate. One of the top trends over the past few years is organic style. The primary bathroom should be inviting and warm, and organic style provides a unique blend of rustic and contemporary designs. Surfaces should be smooth, and in general, we suggest rounded shapes with a warm color palette. Materials should be natural, such as leather, wood, stone and concrete. Consider also adding heated floors to maximize coziness. Greenery would be an excellent complement to accentuate the warm, natural aesthetic; orchids, snake plants or plants that don’t need a lot of light to survive are ideal. Adjustable lighting features, such as dimmer lights for relaxation and brighter lights for cleaning, are a wonderful addition.
