Very small bathroom but want a luxury feel (on a budget of course!)
I have purchased a home where I plan to renovate/add three bathrooms. One is currently a two piece powder room with sink on one side and the toilet on the other. There is a closet behind it which I plan to remove and have a shower installed. My contractor says it can be done but I must use one of those very small sinks so that the long bathroom 3' x 9' will have the shower on one end the toilet on the other and the small sink on the middle.
I am also planning on converting a walk in linen closet upstairs to a bathroom, again very small but will be configuration in the very typical bathroom layout, door on short end of rectangular bathroom with 30" sink then toilet then bathtub at other end of bathroom. Is there a better way of configuring this type/size bathroom? I am thinking of open up the ceiling to the roof and possibly adding skylight to make it appear bigger. I want it to have a luxury feel - how do I do that with its size and on a small budget?
Lastly, I am going to be updating an existing bathroom again with the typical layout just described above. Any suggestion to make ti look spa like? What are the elements that make a bathroom seem like a spa and luxurious (other then size)?
