Spacious, Yet Intimate, Master Bathroom Makeover

A spacious master bathroom is the envy of many homeowners, but what do you do if your high square footage bathroom leaves you feeling a little lost and empty?  Well that’s exactly the challenge that these Glen Ellyn homeowners had for their master bathroom.  The room itself was sizeable, but lacked storage and function.  Visually, the room was dominated by a large bathtub with a blue tile surround and was in need of an update.

With the prospect of house guests for a family event looming, they decided it was time to get their bathroom up to par with the rest of their home.  The homeowners began working with Normandy Designer Stephanie Bryant, CKD to develop a bathroom design that was more functional and more consistent with the appointments in the rest of the home.

Stephanie went to work, and through lots of feedback and collaborative conversation, they settled on a new design that created intimate areas in this large space while adding to their available storage.

The new focal point of the bathroom would be a vintage style freestanding bathtub that is framed in an archway, which creates an intimate area for bathing.  On either side of the bathtub in recessed niches, would be shelving and cabinetry for storage and display items.  New his and hers bathroom vanities with under mount sinks have elegant lighting details and additional storage that separates the two basins.

To reinforce the feeling of comfort and intimacy, a warm and inviting color palette was selected.  The natural Bottocino marble flooring brings warmth, and mosaic details between the large tiles add an extra dimension to the flooring.  Mosaic details are also present in the large shower, which includes four body sprays, a shower head and a bench.
