The fact that so many homeowners are opting for the luxury of custom bathrooms is an indication of how important our surroundings are to us. Although the cost of a custom bathroom is likely to be quite high, it probably wouldn't be more than a luxury vacation for the family, and unlike a two-week vacation, its benefits will be with you for some time to come. So what exactly are custom bathrooms?

Just about any bathroom built from components that are not "off the peg" or ready to buy and install, constitutes a custom bathroom. The range and scale of variations in custom bathrooms, and their popularity shows just how much our private retreats have gained in importance to us in the past few decades. Creating a haven to relax and unwind in is an important part of our lives, and we're prepared to pay for it, it seems.

Presenting the New Custom Bathrooms

With the advent of the new solid surface materials such as Corian and Avonite, there's really no limit to the flights of fancy you could incorporate into custom bathrooms. Custom cabinets with integral wash basins are an exciting possibility. The great thing about these materials is that you can have cabinets, basins and even tubs that are all one piece. This means no joins, and so no leaks or warps either.

Many people pick a theme for custom bathrooms, to add to the pampering atmosphere. Trompe l'oeil murals and faux finishes can enhance any custom bathroom effect too. Just some of the installations you might find in custom bathrooms include separate showers, steam showers, double washbasins, Jacuzzis and more.
