There’s something special about a professionally designed space, with its pulled-together look and effortless elegance. When it comes to designing a luxurious spa-inspired bathroom, there are so many factors to consider that it can be overwhelming for most homeowners. But achieving a sophisticated, designer look is totally doable when you know a couple of pro secrets.
Choose One Style
Cohesive spaces—where all aspects of the design work in harmony—just feel better. That doesn’t mean that everything in the room has to be matchy-matchy or boring. It just means that clearly defining and expressing your style is important to a successful design. For example, if you love floral wallpaper and antique accents, then a classic or traditional design might be a good fit. If you prefer things to be sleek and uncluttered, then minimalist design is probably for you. Maybe you’re drawn to industrial, boho or rustic styles. There is no wrong answer, but the key to getting a designer look is that you pick a theme and stick with it.
Work Within a Collection
A very impactful and often overlooked designer secret is the power of the curated collection. These sets of bathroom faucets and accessories are carefully designed to go together, taking the guesswork out of selecting the right products. It’s as simple as choosing a collection that complements your design and fits your personal style.
One suite of products that’s turning heads is the Lexia Collection from Signature Hardware. This incredibly versatile collection leans toward the modern aesthetic but is equally at home in transitional spaces.
A standout feature of the Lexia Collection is the simple, elegant design of the minimalist lever handle. When installed at the sink, tub and shower, these unique handles provide a consistent and sophisticated look throughout the bathroom.
Another notable design element is found in the spouts. The sink and shower faucets feature either a high gooseneck or a subtly squared-off curve. Though each has its own personality, the scale and overall design are perfectly complementary.
For added design flexibility, Lexia sink faucets are available in widespread, single-hole and vessel-sink configurations. The collection also has matching tub faucets designed for either wall-mounted or deck- mounted installation. There’s a floor-mounted tub filler for freestanding tubs which includes a detachable hand shower as well.
Lexia shower systems can be tailored to virtually any layout. The matching components let you choose anything from a standard single-spout shower with a rainfall shower head, to a more complex system with multiple shower heads and a hand shower on an adjustable slide bar. A matching diverter valve lets you direct water to the right fixture.
The Lexia shower systems use thermostatic technology to easily and precisely control water temperature and pressure balance valves to keep them consistent. Brass valve bodies and one-piece ceramic disc cartridges are designed for smooth, reliable operation and easy maintenance. Thoughtful features like easy-clean spray nozzles and a long, stretchable metal hose make the hand shower extra convenient.
Select the Finish
An important design consideration for any project is the finish of the metal fixtures and accessories in the space. To create a cohesive look, choose a finish that matches other items in your bathroom—like the light fixtures, door handles and cabinet hardware. The Lexia Collection is available in a range of on-trend finishes including chrome, brushed nickel, matte black and brushed gold. No matter which finish you choose, the Lexia Collection features solid metal construction for lasting beauty and durability.
Great design is in the details, and the elements that make the Lexia Collection faucets work so well together are also found in the matching accessories. Add a towel ring, tissue holder and robe hook to complete your spa bathroom.
