Master Bathroom Ideas: Design a Ski-Lodge-Inspired Space

To come up with ski-lodge-inspired master bathroom ideas, start by closing your eyes and imagining that you're in the mountains surrounded by drifts of white sparkling snow and fluffy snowflakes drifting slowly down from a deep gray-blue sky. Picture yourself warming up with a big cup of coffee or hot chocolate, or relaxing in a soothing hot tub or whirlpool next to a crackling fire.

Luckily, you can create this perfect winter vacation atmosphere right in your own home with a ski-lodge-inspired master bathroom. Here are some inspirational ideas to help you get started on designing a space where you can relax and rejuvenate.

Go with a Traditional Design

A traditional ski-lodge-inspired bathroom incorporates elegant and rustic elements. Try adding a fireplace to your master bathroom for a cozy feel. Set it in the wall and cover it with natural-colored mosaic tiles, such as Crystal Shores. These color combinations help to bring the outdoors inside, which is a perfect look for a bathroom that looks like it should be in the mountains. You can also frame the fireplace in stone or stone-look tile, and then extend it to the tub surround. For example, imagine a snow white tub that's surrounded by the same granite featured on the fireplace. Paired with cool polished chrome shower fixtures and a wood-look or stone-look tile floor, it will feel like the perfect traditional, elegant ski-lodge bathroom.

Opt for Rustic Design Elements

If you want to create a rustic design, incorporating certain elements that are found outdoors can help you be successful. Imagine a bathroom that's inspired by a log home or a timber frame, and get inspired by the present materials. These are commonly stone, wood, and other natural elements. A fireplace wall, tub surround, and shower featuring Golden Sun stacked stone will make your bathroom feel extremely rustic. Pair it with a simple stone or stone-look tile floor, such as Alabaster Sands, and you'll feel like you're in the mountains every time you open the door.

Keep It Contemporary

If you want to create a ski-lodge-themed master bathroom that still has a contemporary feel, try incorporating shades of blue that resemble ice and sky. Going with a blue shade of Glass Pebbles on the backsplash or in the shower area is a great way to bring this color scheme into the space. Pair shades of blue with a white bath tub and a modern vessel sink for a modern look. Polished chrome faucets are also a great way to add an icy look. Pair these elements with a unique shade of wood-look tile floor for a modern ski-lodge feel.

These ski-lodge-inspired master bathroom ideas should get your creative juices flowing. There are many tile options that will work well in this type of design. So start by deciding whether you want a modern, traditional, or rustic ski-lodge vibe, and then start planning. Choose materials based on the textures and colors of the mountains and snow. Be sure to have fun and let your personality show throughout your final product.
