A beautiful bathroom remodel project can be a work of art. From the smallest details to the large soaking tub, the right choices can make even the tiniest bathroom feel like a retreat. It is, after all, one of the few rooms in the house where we can lock the door behind us and get away. Some bathrooms, however, go that extra mile to being personal sanctuaries, and in a city like Seattle, which loves all things technologically advanced, the perfect bathroom takes on new meaning.
From digital temperature controls you can set on your smartphone, smart shower heads with light features and sound systems, to self-cleaning toilets and mirrors that double as TVs, there are a whole new set of ways the simple act of getting ready in the morning can become a luxurious experience. And tech-savvy Seattle knows just how. Our list of Seattle’s fifteen best bathroom remodeling contractors are experts ranked for their many years of service in Seattle, their professional recognitions, and their ability to turn these seemingly forgotten rooms into beautiful, brainy retreats that can take the “restroom” experience to whole new heights.
