Need help with master bath layout

October 12, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are currently remodeling our master bedroom and master bath area. We are adding a 12' x 14' area that you will see labeled as "master bath area". We would like layout help placing 2 separate vanities, a 4' x 6' tub, a 4' x 5' shower, and a dressing table. We would like two windows that look into our yard (also shown in pic. We would like a warming drawer somewhere and a cabinet or two. Thanks for any help you can give and we will try to answer your questions.

ok, that would be a drop-in tub... and you'd be open to a freestanding tub?

Heather, I am using Visio from Microsoft. If you would like, you can give your input and I will try to draw it with the tool I am using.

Ok great! What I was thinking is similar to what you posted above.... I like the vanities where they are. But the one on the right, make it an 'L' shape. The other side of that 'L' could be make-up vanity.
Switch the shower and tub
now that shower is on left, move it up some and put toilet behind (outside corner of house)

Heather Let me know if I misunderstood something. I also took the liberty of making another one that is just flip from the first one. I though it would give just a little bit more space between the vanity and the make-up area because the left side is slightly wider than the left side. Plus you can add more windows and I believe 3smithchicks wants windows on that wall. I am not sure how many or how big though.

It is 2:20 am. I am going to bed now but I will check in in the morning and make the corrections.

This is what I would do with that humungous bathroom. A bit like suzanne-m's right hand version but different. The bath is on the south wall near the new window for a bit of serene bathing with a view. There's two vanity units side by side on the 'west' wall and there's a walk in shower, with openings each end, which occupies almost all of the 'east' wall this also creates a toilet cubicle at the very end, south of that. I'm trying to work out how to post a floorplan of this but with no luck so far.

No no no I got that compleeetly the wrong way around. The bath is on the south wall with the 4ft along the west wall and the 6ft along the south wall. The two vanity units are along the west wall and.......actually I got that pretty much right first time :-D

There is another option below that gives you a view to the tub and shower from the entrance. I must say that between my first layout and this one, I prefer the first one.

3smithchicks, I don't know if moving the toilet is an option but if it is, the configuration below will offer a better use of space in the closet.

thats a really good idea about the toilette. who would have thought arranging a bathroom would be so difficult we are appreciating all the great ideas! they are helping

By removing the toilet from the closet, you could enlarge the entrance of the bathroom and bedroom. You just need to leave enough wall to install a vanity on the blue wall show in the drawing below.

I did not notice, before, that there was a toilet already in its own closet. I would leave that there. Have always wanted that in my house. In which case, im loving suzanne's first drawing the most

Heather, you must have found it a bit strange that I was not including a toilet in the bathroom in my first drawing :)

I'd leave the lavvy too and create another one. I prefer my layout ;-P especially with a walk-in shower when there's room and I don't know what a warming drawer is or what it's for.

Strange, yes. Should have known it was ME who was missing something! Sorry about that

Now that you realize that there is already a toilet, if you want to suggest something else, I will be please to draw it for you.

Think about steam in your shower.

Take your own breath away each time you enter your bath. Taking away the box, it will become a dreamy, functional environment. Since most of us have a typical bathroom, if I had a chance to design everything head to toe, this is what I would do: Some of the pics show marble mosaic floor details. As you know, it's all in the details.

Here is another floor detail. The medallion should be centered on the entrance to the bath and the windows and work out from there. (Basically centered on the room). Also the windows are to be 12" from ceiling and 12" from floor. About the shower: center the wall on the tub to house the plumbing for the tub and the other side for the shower. Install frameless clear glass on both sides of the plumbing wall to keep in heat and prevent everything from getting wet, and still accomodate the view from the window. Install an overhead shower head. I have my Mr. Bubbles ready!

really liking all the marble. was thinking about using Carrera marble.. yes i am very excited about getting to add on a whole bath room and can design it from head to toe. Earlier someone asked what a warming drawer was. Instead of a warming towel rack..its a drawer that can warm towels, robes, whatever. Much like a food warming drawer. They are not that expensive and it sounds like a very nice lux. I am also installing floor heaters under the tile :). just having a really hard time with the lay out..trying to get lots of light and function. For some reason i dont like it when the dressing table is connected to the vanity. The diff. heights together bugs me. i am loving all the response . Thank all of y'all. yes i am from the south. :)

I do agree with you about the vanity. Here is a revised plan. I don't know what your style is, mine is classic contemporary, but here is a darling vanity that caught my eye. Have fun, and don't forget to post your new bath for all of us to see!

I don't know why I keep thinking of this bath. . . You have brought up more natural light several times. Install a round or square skylight directly above the floor design, centered in the room. Voila!
