Some people love to take a long shower or soak in the tub to relax perhaps with aroma candles and relaxing music to have a spa-like feel in your bath. Luxury items that can be incorporated in master baths are exercise equipments, see-through fireplaces, mini-refrigerators, saunas and even flat panel televisions that can be mounted on walls or ceiling to really pamper you.
