Sensational Bathroom Designs for Your New Mountain Home

building a mountain home

When you’re building a mountain home at The Coves, you’ll have an opportunity to incorporate elements into the design that truly reflect the beauty of our rustic surroundings.  There are many remarkable ways to extend that theme to the bathroom décor as well.

Innovative bathrooms you can easily find pictured online incorporate copper and glass sinks, pebble stone flooring and showers, and pedestal tubs.  You’ll see extensive use of cedar and hardwood.  Creative light fixture choices are abundant.  And choosing your color scheme from a palette of warm, earth tones ties it all together perfectly.

Utilize natural light sources wherever possible, both to highlight the room’s designer touches and to add the spectacular outside views to its visual appeal.  While comparing NC mountain land for sale, consider how your dream home would sit on the lot.  Evaluate the property’s prominent natural features and perspectives and be sure to take into consideration where the sun rises and sets.

Bathrooms are a great place to use unpainted wood for cabinets, shelving and mirror frames.  How about taking it one step further and creating a barn ambience with bare and even weathered wooden walls?  There are many examples of homes where that approach has been used to great effect.  Though it may not be consistent with your particular taste, the look is quite dramatic and very much in tune with our Blue Ridge foothills living.

North Carolina mountain real estate is popular with retiring city dwellers who have tired of the cookie-cutter feel of their urban existence and relish the chance to build their dream homes where the air is fresh, the sky is clear and opportunities abound for outdoor activities.  A dramatically-styled or even rustic bathroom might be a quantum leap from what they’re accustomed to, and yet in this setting it looks and feels like a perfect fit for their new lifestyle.

But going rustic in terms of appearance doesn’t mean you have to give up the creature comforts that you want and deserve.  Build in a Jacuzzi tub, a steam shower, a sauna…whatever helps to make the space your own.  Here, the old and the new can work together in perfect harmony.

You’ll want to be involved in every aspect of your bathrooms’ design, and our creative team at The Coves is here to help.  The process can be overwhelming at times, but we try to make it fun.  The list of flooring possibilities alone can seem endless.  There are any number of variations just in the basic tile, stone, and wood categories.  In the end, however, you’ll have the satisfaction of building a mountain home that’s uniquely yours in every way.

NC mountain land for sale doesn’t come any better than what we have to offer at The Coves Mountain River Club.  We’re perfectly situated on five miles of pristine Johns River waterfront near Wilson Creek.  So our residents enjoy some of the best trout fishing in the area, along with abundant water activities, hiking and biking trails, and simply spectacular mountain scenery.  Golfers love our on-site course.  And, living here, you have a front row seat for the dramatic changing colors of fall foliage season. 

If buying North Carolina mountain real estate is in your plans for now or in the future, make sure you visit the Lenoir area and come by to see us.  We’ll give you a great tour of the property that includes our Pisgah Mountain Lodge, site of so many popular local events and a great place just to kick back on the balcony with a glass of wine and watch the sun set. 

Again, there are many web sites online where you can see how owners of mountain homes have made bathrooms into attractive designer statements very much in keeping with the rest of the interior. 

So start getting your ideas together…and then let us help you make them come alive at The Coves Mountain River Club.
