Custom Primary Bathroom Remodel
This primary bathroom had a serious case of the blahs. The remodel was begun because the homeowners wanted to remove the walls that surround the old shower. Once the walls were replaced with mostly glass and open to the natural light, the shower became a truly spa-like experience with dual shower heads and a built-in bench.
Custom vanity with functional storage, custom lighting, glass tile accents in the shower and behind the mirrors, heated travertine floors, an air-jetted tub, and a fully outfitted primary closet make this space perfect for getting ready in the morning or unwinding at the end of a busy day.

Warm and Natural Bath Remodel
From Lisa Ball, an independent interior designer with a studio in Minneapolis, this project involved a complete update of this primary bathroom that originally included a hot tub, an oversized shower that never warmed up, and outdated materials (all of them white.) We incorporated a warmer color palette and used more natural materials including limestone, marble, and tile mosaic blends and bamboo cabinets. It was important to keep the clean, contemporary look that is consistent throughout the rest of the home.

High-End Bathroom Redesign
In a vacation home, a busy professional couple wanted a relaxing and luxurious primary bath zoned so that each had plenty of space.
Karen Williams designed a tranquil bath with unusual touches such as a warming drawer turned towel warmer, and a sexy mirrored lingerie chest that provides a bit of bling. The emphasis was on the natural light flooding in from the windows, with the whirlpool tub built into a platform that turns into a window ledge flanked with tall storage and drawer cabinets. The towel warming drawer is concealed to the right of the tub below the ledge. Mosaic tile “rugs” on either side of the whirlpool are placed in front of each vanity. The color scheme is serene with hand-glazed cream cabinetry and pale blue Azul marble vanity tops, kept light with the lattice fronts on the vanities.
A separate shower/steam room is designed with multiple body jets, frosted glass door, and custom mosaic tile insets. Adjacent is the toilet/bidet room. The main entrance to the primary bath from the bedroom is through glass-fronted double custom doors designed by St. Charles of New York which open to reveal an antique French chandelier.

Doubling Up Your Bathroom Style
According to design Debra Cohen, these homeowners doubled the size of a 20-year-old 5-foot by 7-foot primary bath to create this sumptuous, spa-like retreat. Two walls are adorned with a magnificent custom mosaic tile. The glass subway tiles in the shower and on the lower walls counterbalance the mosaics and give the bathroom a clean, sleek feel.

Bathroom Remodel Wisely Uses Vertical Space
Make the most of a small bathroom by using the vertical space, especially the high ceiling height in vintage homes. A pull-out stool was designed to roll back into the cabinet when not in use so it does not take up precious floor space.

Tiny Studio Apartment Bathroom Remodel
According to id 818 Design Group, this bathroom was formerly the small kitchen of a studio apartment in Manhattan and after combining the studio with a two-bedroom apartment next door, it is now the primary bathroom en suite to a primary bedroom. The bronze glass tiles and cream-colored porcelain tiles all speak to the finishes used in the primary bedroom. With a large standing shower and a thermostatic system, the bathroom feels like a luxurious escape from the hectic Manhattan lifestyle.

About This Term: Primary Bedroom
Many real estate associations, including the National Association of Home Builders, have classified the term "Master Bedroom" as discriminatory. "Primary Bedroom" is the name now widely used among the real estate community and better reflects the purpose of the room.
