Bathrooms give spa treatment to homeowners
Why go to a day spa when you can create a sublime space for relaxation and stress relief right at home? These days, homeowners in the throes of a renovation project are building spa-like splendor right into their bathroom blueprint.
“Increasingly, our clients are asking for master bathrooms that mimic the style and services of a luxury hotel spa,” says Lisa Keyser of White pop Design in Mahwah. Here, a trio of new Bergen bathrooms that answer the call for in-home spa serenity.

When the homeowners of this striking gray and black bathroom began the process of creating their own in-home spa space, they turned to designer Wendy Eigen of Wendy Eigen Designs in Upper Saddle River. She took her cue from the home’s modern industrial style to design a distractionfree space purpose-built to accommodate in-home spa treatments. The designer laid the foundation with a heated wood floor of Zebrano Vestige marble field tile custom cut in a mosaic pattern on the shower floor. Crisp white walls, frosted glass French doors, and brushed nickel fixtures with a contemporary profile add to the bathroom’s more commercial aesthetic. And while a double vanity, deep glass shower with handheld and stationary shower heads, and oversized whirlpool tub suggest a spacious setting for two, the bathroom’s most luxurious feature is the open space in the middle of the room. It accommodates a portable massage table that >is a sure ticket to solo serenity.
