We were recently approached to build a contemporary master bathroom for a client who works in the hotel/resort industry. At first sight, our client's existing bathroom was spacious . . and let's just say it was of a specific era. More on that later.
Anyhow, we were excited about the possibilities, and we knew right away that no ordinary master bathroom was going to cut it. One priority was a large bath tub which we positioned under the expansive windows.
Along with the windows, the skylight was one rare feature we preserved when we demolished this bathroom. We are major fans of natural light in our projects, and we added recessed lighting for low light conditions.
You might be wondering what this bathroom looked like before the renovation. It was a well-preserved specimen from approximately 1978-1982. This era of bathrooms was truly unfortunate. Don't say we didn't warn you.
In addition to the abundant natural light, the other advantage was the spacious footprint that allowed us to create the master bathroom our client wanted. This bathroom is one of our top examples of the "less is more" philosophy in bathroom design. We found the results very satisfying: an oasis our client can enjoy every day.
