Every Wednesday, the kitchen and bath industry comes together to discuss all things design. With a new host and topic each week, it’s one informative hour! We’re giving you a #kbtribechat recap in just a few minutes.

This week’s topic – spa bathrooms! Pamper yourself in your own home oasis.

Do certain materials, colors or design aesthetics help create a spa feel in a bathroom?

A spa is all about beauty and function. Wendy Resin Interiors married the two with a soothing all-white palette and durable Misty Carrera vanity + makeup station ensuring a stress-free day even if you spill some nail polish.

According to reports, quartz is still #1 in surfaces. With designers like Studio Dearborn creating stunning spaces like this one with Statuario Nuvo, it’s easy to see why!

What tips do you have to create a spa oasis in an existing bathroom?

Creating a spa oasis in an existing bathroom is simple: paint the walls and cabinets with timeless colors then add a clear shower panel to make the space feel bigger, like this Noelle Interiors design with a London Grey bath surround.

How do you prevent water spots on clear glass shower doors?

Who’s looking at water spots on glass doors when they have a backlit Puro wall? SLABlite Inc. made this amazing install for Toll Brothers. And that bench- Piatra Grey!

LED lighting adds a soft, relaxing feel to bathrooms. What bathroom lighting do you like for a spa bathroom?

Make yourself feel like royalty in your spa bathroom and do as Square Footage Custom Kitchens & Bath Inc.- add a chandelier over the bath! A Concrete bath surround and shower ledge complete the design.

Playing with various light sources also creates a dynamic design. We love a fun light under the vanity- especially one that changes colors! Gabor + Allen designed this Frosty Carrina vanity beautifully!

The holidays are upon us, and gifting is not easy. Gift a plush robe to keep your friends warm after a shower, or incense to keep the bathroom smelling fresh, inspired by Clark & Co Homes’ design with Calacatta Nuvo.

Stay tuned for next week’s #KBtribechat discussion!
