Grandview HouseContemporary Bathroom, Los Angeles

What Houzz contributors are saying:
Another friend, Marisol Medina, recently purchased her first home in the Los Angeles area after a house hunt of almost 10 years. It doesn’t have a tub. As the mother of a 3-year-old, she thought she would miss this amenity but has come to prefer their new setup. Instead of a tub, the home has a huge walk-in shower with a bench and several shower heads, including a handheld shower. Medina or her husband simply step into the shower with their son for “bath time.” There’s plenty of space for everyone to move around and, the best part, no back-breaking bending over the edge of a tub. Medina admits that it needs to be a good-size shower, with a bench, to be comfortable, but they are happy with the setup and don’t miss the tub — except, of course, when she or her husband are craving a soak.
An open-layout bathroom has a spa-like feel. Half-inch-by-2-inch porcelain tiles cover all the surfaces.
