Essential Bathroom Luxuries

We want your opinion Kbtribe!

Luxury Bath Design

Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate of 500 recently conducted a survey of luxury home buyers on what they considered “essential“.

Their results for the bathroom:

#1 – Multiple Shower Heads

#2 – Dedicated Make-up/Grooming Space

#3 – Heated Floors

#4 – Ports for digital music players

#5 – A “focal point” tub

#6 – A sauna or steam room

Do you agree?

These certainly are great items but let’s bring this to the kitchen and bath pros of Kbtribechat.  What are your top 6 bathroom essentials?  This is obviously a list beyond the basics.

Do you find most of your clients wanting multiple shower heads and make-up vanities in the master bath?  Those are the top two “essentials” on the list!

Get your list ready…we’re talking bathroom design at the next Kbtribechat!
