201 Health - - In The Home - WRIT­TEN BY BROOKE PERRY

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.
