Top 5 Luxury Bathroom Features Worth Investing In

At InterConstruct, we recognise that your bathroom is more than just a functional space and should be carefully personalised to fit the needs of your lifestyle and daily habits. While luxury bathroom features may seem like an indulgence, investing in quality finishes, fixtures, and hardware can elevate your bathroom experience by blending high-end design with practical benefits. What’s more, high-end bathroom features are a lasting and discerning investment that can increase the resale value of your property and attract future potential buyers. This article will delve into the top 5 luxury bathroom features we believe are worth the investment. If you’ve been mulling over including a few upscale touches in your upcoming bathroom renovation, then be sure to read on!

Underfloor Heating

What was once a staple of European design and sophistication may still be regarded as a luxury but has become increasingly accessible for more and more South Australian homes. As the name implies, underfloor heating consists of a heating system installed under a home’s flooring. This heating system provides even and ambient warmth that eliminates cold feet on Adelaide’s frigid winter mornings and provides comfort and convenience to enhance your morning routine. If you thought leaving to work on a rainy day in July, felt like a struggle that required true strength of character to overcome, just wait until you experience the cozy comfort of underfloor heating! You won’t want to leave your bathroom behind.

Underfloor heating is an efficient and innovative way to keep your bathroom floor warm.

Underfloor heating is also more energy-efficient and cost-effective than traditional heating methods for keeping your bathroom space toasty warm throughout cold seasons. While the initial cost can change depending on installation complexity, underfloor heating is usually quite affordable, and the notion of high costs is a misconception.

Premium and Designer Fixtures

Premium and designer fixtures can come in various materials and finishes. However, they have one thing in common. From faucets to mirrors and shower heads, these staple pieces can help enhance your bathroom’s overall look and feel and provide an upgraded visual and sensory experience. The right elements can transform your bathroom into a luxury spa, sophisticated yet utilitarian space, or relaxing oasis- depending on your aesthetic preferences. Popular examples of popular premium fixtures that can enhance your space include:

Waterfall Faucets

These taps are designed to evoke the motion of a waterfall. Customarily featuring a flat spout with a sleek and elegant design, waterfall faucets allow water to exit in a wide, smooth flow that creates an aesthetically pleasing effect.

LED-Backlit Mirrors

Backlit mirrors don’t just add an element of sophistication and elegance to bathroom spaces. Their illumination can also make a compact bathroom appear larger, while their even and soft lighting reduces shadows and glare. This is especially beneficial for shaving, applying makeup, or grooming tasks.

The backlit mirror featured in the Newton home renovation contributes to a sumptuous interior that oozes sophistication and comfort.

Rain Showerheads

Rain showerheads are the ultimate upgrade in shower comfort. Their even water distribution, evoking natural rainfall, provides a luxurious, relaxing experience that will leave you reinvigorated.

Our Grange renovation featured a rain showerhead that helped create a contemporary, streamlined space that exudes sophistication.

Designer Hardware

At InterConstruct, we understand that the devil is in the details. Quality materials and finishes for bathroom hardware, such as handles, knobs, and hooks, can make all the difference in the aesthetic appeal of your bathroom. Why not opt for gunmetal, trendy black, brushed nickel or bright chrome? Pair these details with marble or feature tiles for a truly opulent feel.

Multi-Sink Vanities

Multi-sink vanities usually feature two sinks and separate storage compartments, making them ideal investments for larger households or couples sharing an ensuite. While multi-sink vanities are aesthetically pleasing, they also provide a reliable solution for morning rush bottlenecks and reduce clutter and personal item mix-ups. However, multi-sink vanities are not the right option for all bathrooms, as they require ample space for comfortable use and movement.

Our Gulfview Heights renovation featured a dual-sink vanity, allowing the family to streamline their morning routines and enjoy more personal space in the bathroom.


Originally popular in Europe and Asia, bidets are taking the Australian market by storm. Bidets provide a hygienic and modern alternative to traditional toilets, reduce the reliance on toilet paper, and combat waste. However, bidets may require plumbing modifications, and the initial setup can be costly.

Heated Towel Rails

We’re all familiar with waking up on a cold South Australian winter’s day and heading to our bathroom only to find our towels still damp from the night before. Well, heated towel rails are the ideal solution! These electric racks keep your towels toasty when needed while preventing mould and mildew. Heated towel rails can also serve as a supplemental heat source in your bathroom.

For those worried about a towel rail fitting into their existing space – not to worry!

These nifty fixtures are available in various designs and finishes, such as chrome, nickel, brass, gold, and silver, and numerous configurations, including wall-mounted, freestanding, and swivel models. So, if you’re looking to enhance your bathroom experience with warm, cozy towels, then heated towel rails are the way to go!

A heated towel rail, such as the one featured in our Fairview Park renovation, provides warmth and comfort and serves as a design statement.

Custom Cabinetry

In our detailed article on custom kitchen cabinetry, we outline the key benefits of bespoke storage solutions tailored to the unique needs of individual lifestyles. Just like kitchen cabinetry, custom bathroom cabinets are tailored to fit your bathroom’s specific dimensions and needs, providing design and storage solutions that stock cabinetry cannot match. While providing a larger selection of materials and finishes, custom cabinets also provide value in their utility and the customised solutions they provide for storing toiletries, linens, and cleaning supplies.

The shaker style cabinetry featured in the St Peters home renovation assisted in creating a cohesive space that felt truly singular.

Luxury can be worth it!

So there you have it. Premium bathroom features aren’t just a splurge for those seeking a luxurious indulgence. They can help enhance your home’s comfort, functionality, and aesthetic appeal, transforming your bathroom from a necessary chore to a place you enjoy spending time in. Whether they come in underfloor heating, premium fixtures, multi-sink vanities, bidets, heated towel rails, or custom cabinetry, they can significantly impact how you experience your living environment and daily routines.
