hich area of your home do you visit most frequently? It is either your lounge or your bathroom. In my opinion, there are two places in a house where a person spends most of his cash when it comes down to constructing, renovating or refurbishing a house; the Kitchen or the bathrooms. The concept of a bathroom is not restricted to just a bathroom anymore, it has gone beyond a functional space to a truly luxurious, fully loaded space in the house, especially when it comes to the master bathroom.

 

From increase in allocated space for bathrooms to accessories and gadgets available, it has become a dedicated industry. Mudassar Khalid has also thought well when it came down to choosing how he wanted his bathroom to look and what he wanted it to have. From the blue floor tiles to the matching blinds and hinges everything is well matched and aesthetically pleasing giving it all a tranquil look. A full sized jacuzzi with an electronic control panel for temperature as well as MP3 player is a touch of class.

 

The pre-installed sound system in the bathroom is something that we don’t see every day in the bathrooms around us and gives you a chance to be entertained especially on a hot afternoon when you want to run away from the scorching heat and enjoy a long soak in a cold tub to wash away your stress, while listening to your favorite tunes. It’s enough to turn you green with envy.

 

Spa and shower booth is another great feature that sets this bathroom apart. Double shower option gives you an ease and feel of a full body aqua therapy along with six pressure water points that offer you a back massage while you sit and relax on a specially designed seat in the shower booth. Special foot massage points are also a stunning feature for ultimate relaxation.

 

Storage space in the bathroom is ample and easily stores much more than toiletries and their usual inventory. A full-fledged internally lit wardrobe is a beautiful and practical feature of this bathroom. After all, the master bath is a matter of attitude. If you work to make it a retreat, by creating the right atmosphere through the wall finishes, attractive fixtures of good quality, elegant flooring and counter top materials, a dimmer switch for lights, and perhaps even a candle or two and voila, your own home spa will be ready for business, no need to indulge in exotic holidays at expensive resorts, you can have all the resort comforts right at home at a touch of button.
