May is a month we remember the gift of mothers in our life. Whether you want to make your wife feel special or your mom(s), what better gift that keeps on giving than making the bathroom fit for a queen? Here are six touches of luxury that will help her feel pampered:

Heated Floors—Once your feet enjoy nice, warm flooring, you will be so glad you have it as your standard! They come with a programmable thermostat so you can have radiant heat rising up ready for you in the morning or evening.

No Threshold Walk-in Shower—Providing both safety and convenience, most homeowners want a larger shower, free from a trip hazard to step over. Beautiful, decorative tile with glass walls will make the bathroom seem larger. Add a bundle of eucalyptus to hang from the shower head to add a fresh, clean scent.

Soaking Tub—Most women enjoy a soak in the tub with Epsom salts. It is a great way to absorb magnesium which helps one to relax those muscles. Adding some drops of essential oil, a shelf for some candles, and it’s a spa treatment! Especially if you add:

Music—If she likes clutter-free counters, consider buying Kohler’s Moxie Showerhead which comes with a waterproof speaker with Amazon Alexa that easily docks in the center of the showerhead. She could sing in the shower, ask for the current weather conditions, listen to a favorite podcast, or have it play the type of music to either energize or relax, all with a voice command.

Tornado Body Dryer is a versatile vertical dryer that offers many benefits. It can preheat the space, merge from the warmth of water to warm air to dry off, it provides a hands-free means to dry hair, and it will help remove excess moisture and cut down on towel usage, as one can dry without the need to bend over to do so.

Solar Tube with a Night Light—A solar tube is a way to bring in more natural light without privacy concerns. Having it equipped with a solar-powered night light will provide a nice glow through the night should anyone need to use the restroom.

The master bathroom serves as a place for rejuvenation as one prepares for the day, and relaxation to unwind for the night. Having a well-designed bathroom is about as important as a well-designed kitchen. Adding these extra touches will be a gift she’ll enjoy every day.

Happy master bathroom remodeling!
