Bathroom remodels often don’t bring the highest returns simply because they’re expensive to begin with, but if you’re adding a second bath where you only had one before — or if you’re operating in a hot real estate market — remodeling can be a very smart move. Jan Goldman, owner of renovation and design firm Kitchen Elements, has a tip for creating space: no windows over tubs. “Who needs a window in the bath that you’ll never open?” she says. “It’s a design flaw that many builders indulge in. Typically, if you move the window somewhere else, the floor space will open up.” In this bath, that move created room for more than nine feet of prime counter space.
Create a sensual bathing space with a simple sheer around the tub, like in the guest room of the QT Melbourne with its industrial chic vibe. The look would be fun to mimic in a bathroom for a “wall of privacy” that you can still see through, says Michelle Workman of Michelle Workman Interiors.
This crisp and contemporary master bath features fun details that tie its design to its farmhouse architecture and rural setting. Cornflower blue trim pops against the all-white palette, while a freestanding soaker tub is a modern take on the traditional farmhouse bathtub. A walk-in shower features a frameless glass door and subway tile, and a floating vanity helps keep the space open and uncluttered.
To match the luxurious master bedroom, the master bath brings an air of elegance with a pair of dazzling chandeliers, a flatscreen TV, a fireplace and marble flooring. The beautiful his and hers vanity features ample storage both on and below the countertop, and a soaking tub is strategically placed by the window to take advantage of the stunning views of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
The master bedroom suite of this Encino, California home is now a cool retreat at one end of the home with a lavishly remodeled bathroom and easy access to the backyard swimming pool. Rustic touches like the large area rug compliment the home's California-modern design style and set off the austere marble of the soaking tub, floor and wall tiles in the master bath.
In the bathroom, designers used the modern, Asian motif from the rest of the home to bring in unique features that give this space a spa like feel. The window above the large soaking tub gives the space plenty of natural light, while the bamboo wood panel helps to create some privacy between the spa space and the outdoors. To create privacy inside the home, panels of frosted glass create a space in the bathroom that is separate from the rest of the room's spaces; however, by using panels of glass rather than glass sheets, designers were able to keep the bath area from feeling cut off and separate-keeping the room's design flow continuous-while still giving this space an amount of privacy.
This beautiful Asian spa in spired master bathroom is the ultimate place to relax in this on-the-go city. Twenty six floors above the Las Vegas Strip, this bathroom feels like a quick trip to their orient. The double sink vanity is custom made from zebra wood, which gives the space a more authentic look. A large soaker tub is tucked away behind a small wall so that bathers can still enjoy the view from the sky, but are also given a bit of privacy. The accents in the space also help to give it that private, spa feel. The koi fish on the wall bring in the Asian inspiration, while the cherry ladder shelving houses spa essentials as well as antique Asian accessories.
