How to Make Your Bathroom Feel Like a Spa

Bathroom Upgrade Ideas

Working on interior design and renovation can create the most remarkable bathrooms with some minimal, carefully curated changes. From attentively selected light fixtures and accessories to simple changes in color palettes, there are a number of bathroom upgrade ideas that can transform a space and make it feel luxurious and breathable.

At A-List Builders, we’ve worked on tons of bathroom renovations and would love to assist you with expert advice. If you want to learn more about luxury bathroom design, read on here for tips from our experienced team on how to make your bathroom feel like a spa.

1. Discover the Right Color Scheme

Discover Right Color Scheme


What is most soothing about the spas you’ve visited in hotels and beauty salons? Usually it’s their color palettes and how they create a sense of space in their various rooms. If you’re looking for the top bathroom color upgrade ideas, you’ll want to lean more towards light blues, warm whites and creams, and cool greys. These colors lend a refreshing, clean feeling to your space.

Beware of choosing colors that are too sterile, like bright whites and mint greens. Window sill trims and crown molding in complementary colors can help offset any hues that are too cold. If you’re not sure where to find color and trim samples, the team at A-List Builders can help! Reach out to learn more.

2. Choosing the Perfect Lighting

Perfect Lightning

Like your color palette, warm lighting is best here. You can also work with an experienced contracting team, like A-List Builders, to install dimmable lights for extra control over your space. Dim lights are an essential aspect of luxury bathroom design, allowing you to invite warm tones and colors into the space.

You may also want to consider different types of wall sconces, pendant lights, and vanity lights to create a cohesive environment. Antiqued metal fixtures look great with warm tones and bring an artisan vibe into your bathroom. Get bathroom upgrade ideas for your own lighting when you browse our portfolio online!

4. Budget Changes

Not every bathroom renovation requires you to spend a ton of money. You can update small pieces of your bathroom one by one to slowly build up to the perfect spa. Change out your faucets and shower heads for more elegant pieces, or consider getting a rain showerhead with adjustable settings. Just changing out your bath products for soaps with herbal hints like lavender and eucalyptus can also have a substantial effect.

Here is what a few of them say.

  • Kobi R.

    It’s been years since I’ve done any work to my home so I was nervous about the whole project. Thankfully, I found a company that not only provided me with a patient ( I am very particular) and punctual contractor, Rani, but the job came out better than I expected. After doing such an amazing job on the kitchen, I expressed to Rani that I would like to do some more work with him but money, unfortunately, doesn’t grow on trees. Fortunately, Rani found an affordable way for me to redo all the bathrooms and flooring throughout the house.

  • Beverly S.

    Our initial meeting with Rani was excellent due to him giving us information and ideas we hadn’t thought of. He returned a week later with a presentation for our kitchen. Again, we were surprised at his additional ideals and his presentation. We had previously had two of the big-box stores come out so we had an idea of cost. Rani was more reasonable and offered us better and more creative ideas. Our kitchen is completed and we feel we qualify for Better Homes & Gardens. We would recommend our experience and job to everyone.

  • Warren M.

    After about a year and a half after we remodeled our bathroom, we had some minor electrical issues and reached out to A-List Builders. Ben followed up consistently and in a timely manner until my needed repair work was done.

  • Debbie W.

    Everyone was professional, nice and knowledgeable. I am so happy with their work and I will be using them again for my next project. In addition, I will be referring them (which I don't do unless I completely trust a job well done) to my family and friends. Thank you, again, for such a positive experience.

  • Deborah B.

    I hired A-List for a large restoration project. The project involved wall replacement with framing & drywall, stucco, exterior & interior painting, foundation reinforcement, a new exterior gate, fence repair, brick & tile walkways. Ben was the only contractor I interviewed who recommended that an engineer inspect the foundation as part of the evaluation process. Megan cheerfully worked through the process with my insurance company. All of the on-site workers were a pleasure to work with. They arrived early, were professional, & kept the work-site clean & organized...even the city inspector commented positively about A-List's knowledge & organization. A-List Builders did a great job & their follow-up was excellent.

  • Lou D.

    Like so many people in LA we bought a fixer upper. Over the last 5 years we have searched intently for a contractor we could trust. Never has a contractor come on our property that affected us the way Ben and Megan from A-List Builders have. They immediately understood our needs and made brilliant suggestions. They answered every question, every call, and it was such a difference dealing with them than any company we've ever hired before. They did not waste a minute of our time, nor did they try to get us to do more than we wanted. Their pricing is more than fair. They are so good at what they do and completely trustworthy and make hard things much easier. There actually IS a really good General Contractor out there and a company that does all that it promises and more.

    I used A-List Builders for my Bathroom Remodel and my bathroom is more beautiful now than I could have ever imagined...I met with Ben who gave me a free estimate for the job and knew right away that A-List Builders was the company I was going to use for the job. Their estimate was fair, and their communication throughout the entire process was fantastic. I always knew there was going to be someone else on the other line if I needed to get a hold of them for any reason. Their workers were true pros that did an immaculate job, excellent craftmanship and very good at keeping the renovation area very clean. I absolutely love my new bathroom and have already recommended them to two of my friends. Truly a great experience!
