Like the master bedroom, the master bath is designed to provide a virtual outdoor experience, creating the impression that the space is open to the outside. The seamless glass windows that form the outer walls are made of Starfire glass, a highly specialized glass that is actually clearer than ordinary glass and typically reserved for such purposes as building jewelry display cases and high-end aquariums. The cost of upgrading from clear glass to Starfire glass was more than $1 million. The master bath's freestanding tub cost more than $20,000, as seen on HGTV's Million Dollar Rooms.
Shiplap gives a fresh spin on a farmhouse-style bathroom, like this one by design firm Cloth & Kind. These walls use 1-by-8 primed spruce, but you can use almost any species, and the thinner the wood, the cheaper per board, says Tyler Davis, owner of Athens Building Co. To further trim costs, he suggests cutting thin ⅛-inch sheets of finished plywood into strips and hanging them on the wall. Although those transoms were added, he says you can purchase fixed sidelights or transoms from a builder surplus store, or better yet from an old house or charity thrift shop, and add hinges and a chain to make them operable.
