If you’ve been following along, you know that Heidan Construction has been working out a short series on how to go about a contemporary remodel. Well, now that we’ve covered both the kitchen and dining room, the living room and den, and the master bedroom, we’ve finally arrived at the last important room in the house: the master bathroom. The master bathroom is one of the most used rooms in the house, following closely behind the kitchen. So, it only makes sense that it would require a careful attention to detail. Let’s jump in.
When it comes to the master bathroom, size really does matter. If your master bathroom isn’t able to accommodate all of your needs with enough space to move around freely, it isn’t big enough. During your remodel, if you have any space bordering your bathroom that isn’t vital, it’s possible to expand. Have a bedroom on the other side of your bathroom? It won’t hurt to make it a little smaller in the name of comfort. Plus, it’s not impossible to expand that bedroom as well on its other side.
A Connecting Fireplace
If you just came from our last article about the master bedroom, you already know about the necessity of a connecting fireplace. If you want luxury in your home, this is what you’re looking for.
A connecting fireplace is placed on a wall between the master bedroom and master bath. This allows you to light a fire and enjoy it as you move between these two rooms. This is ideal for cold winter evenings when you just want to relax. Imagine yourself immersed in a warm bubble bath with the comforting crackle of a fire going nearby. You even get to continue enjoying it as you dry off and migrate to the bed to read. Click here for this gallery of examples.
Cleaning and Relaxation
There are two things in your master bathroom that really must be quality if you want your master bathroom to look contemporary. Contemporary bathroom design can be contained in a smaller space for a communal bathroom. Don’t do yourself the disservice of containing your desires when it comes to the master. Let’s talk bathtubs and showers for your contemporary remodel.
If you enjoy baths, it’s time to give yourself the bathtub you always dreamed of having: something big – deep enough to submerge in. Contemporary bathroom interiors look best with built-in tubs, surrounded by a platform and steps. This allows you some space to set candles or lay towels for yourself. It has a truly luxurious and extravagant feel to it.
If you don’t like bathing, or if you want both, a shower is next on the list. A contemporary shower must have glass. There’s no two ways about it. Large, dark tiles or solid stone is ideal for the shower floor and walls. If you’re really dedicated to the aesthetic and having a high quality of life, you’ll have a shower that’s built into the room.
Fiberglass showers that can be set up in the bathroom and caulked around the edges are not what we’re looking for here. What you need is a shower with a tile or stone floor, a hidden slot drain, and a two-way, frameless, glass door. It doesn’t get better than this.
Because contemporary design worships lighting and openness so much, windows are great, even in the bathroom. Install windows high up on the walls or choose some with frosted glass that won’t affect your privacy.
