A bathroom should be more than just the bare necessities and all space should be used to the fullest. Proper planning of space for a master bathroom is crucial. It can make the difference between selling a home as well as enjoying the home.
Elegant Traditional Bathroom
These four images are taken in the water closet and main area of the master bathroom. The design was created for elegance. New cupboards with double sinks were added to the main area of the bathroom with an electric heater under the cupboards. The original shower was only two feet deep. A closet was removed on the other side of the shower in order to make the shower larger. A steam shower, tiled seat and second shower head was installed in the new shower.
1920's Remodeled Bathroom
This bathroom was totally remodeled in a 1930's house. Note the mosaic tiles installed halfway up the walls around the bathroom to remind one of the old plunge bathrooms. Hunter Green inserts in the mosaic tiles were used rather than the traditional black to give the tile a somewhat updated look. The mosaic was finished off with a top row of tiles displaying a classic design in gold. A cabinet with double sinks and a below cabinet electric heater was added. The toilet was relocated to the newly constructed water closet on the far wall for privacy and extra large claw tub finished off the look.
This bathroom was a blend of remodel and new construction. It was designed to tie in with the style of this English style home. the shower/bathtub was newly built to look like an older traditional tub. The windows looked out onto the lush garden. Note the tile color which brings the outdoors into the room.
