Ideas For Master Bath Welcomed


I have a client that we did their kitchen a few years ago that has requested me (of all people) to hep design her bath.
I have some ideas of my own but thought I would toss it out there for anyone that is interested in helping me out.
Many thanks in advance for your time.

So the existing bathroom shown plus the space to the right of it can be used for a new proposed area? I assume for a female hence the makeup desk so doesn't that mean as much closet as possible?

Stand alone tub screws up any good designs IMO.

This just in, The stand alone tub is out.

The "existing" bath is actually part of the remodel. I drew these walls in the best way to maximize the space in the master. The existing walls are configured differently.

First I would question her does she really want a walk-in closet in the bathroom? It's gonna need, I think, ventilation. Is that extra trouble and cost worth it to her? Just how many towels does she have?

I assume that area to the right is the existing hallway? You are going to use that extra space too right?

The closet needs to be within the area marked.

That is the hall but it is shown how it will need to be as well as the spare bath. The spare bath is larger now than shown but I have it configured to the size they are happy with. Its just your basic 5' wide bath as shown.

Re: Ideas For Master Bath Welcomed


Ok, so it has to be within the confines you show. Where are the windows located, or are you open to relocating or installing some new ones?

Windows are a blank slate. There are a couple there now that will be removed.

Yeah, you don't have room for much but it can be done with some effort, I am sure.

There are a bunch of possible combinations of designs though.

Thanks Andy,

The stand alone tub is out as of an email today. But looking for a nice tiled shower.

No need for a his closet, they will share.

That was a little bit of a joke of course, the difference in sizes of closet and all.

Andy, that door on the toilet room needs to be a LF and swing against the wall. I do think the toilet should go on the right to make tie in easier to the existing drain.

Re: Ideas For Master Bath Welcomed


I'm still confused. Does the existing bathroom space get used or will be a different space afterwards?

Re: Ideas For Master Bath Welcomed


Would be a better layout if you could use that portion of the room were existing bathroom is now... What will happen to that space?

Re: Ideas For Master Bath Welcomed


If the left wall and back wall are outside walls (want room for windows)... then I would put a hallway all the way to the left with a door into the walk-in closet on the right then a door at the end of the hall opening into the bathroom.

Thank you for all your efforts. Very kind of you.

The bath that I have pictured is how the spare bath will be reconfigured. Or at least close to it. There is a bath there now but it is over 90" wide. My idea is to cut that down to the 60" shown. The master bath will reap the extra square footage.

I like your ideas. I am sure that we will end up with something close to your layout. I'm still struggling with a way to get one larger closet and a little longer vanity. I have not had time today to really focus on it though. But your efforts are really helping, thank you.

You guys are awesome

I like Gregs last pic. I would make the shower walls glass panels, and lose the closet at the right and install linen cabinet there instead.
