Master Bathroom traditional bathroom
 

Master Bathroom

Innovation, elegance and comfort come together in this contemporary take on a traditional master bath. Whimsical light fixtures and windowpanes are contrasted by the strength of the room’s clean lines and travertine floor. High ceilings contribute to the openness of the design.

In a space replete with unique elements, the recessed, all-glass shower steals the show. Situated as the centerpiece and surrounded by three transparent walls, this step-down paragon draws attention without obstructing the view or breaking up the capaciousness of the room. A deep, luxurious tub sits alongside the shower, nestled beneath a bay window. Even with such focus on aesthetics, there is no lack of counter or storage space. Custom built-ins hold matching “his and hers” sinks, separated by a seated vanity. Above, a flat screen television is mounted, visible from every angle.

Doors lead to a private toilet and linen closet, removing clutter from the main living space. The rest of the master suite can be found through the adjoining hall, featuring a barrel ceiling and access to a commodious walk-in closet.

Being a focal point the owners must employ housekeepers to clean that glass daily. Too high maintenance!

Beautiful bathroom! - I was wondering if it was possible to have a tub/shower/steam room? Obviously not in the center of the room but on a side wall? It looks like this has the tub/shower together already. Any suggestions of where to look for something like that?

bepsf is correct, one tub by the window and the shower is in the middle of the room.

This sunk in shower base with the completely free standing shower, was the base something that was custom made? or did they buy the base somewhere? Also, what is the base tile? or cultured marble?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Design Leaps of Faith
A shower smack dab in the center of the bathroom is definitely a design leap of faith, even if a clear enclosure ensures that it doesn’t visually impede the flow.
