A Minimalist Master Bathroom by Fiorito Interior Design

I have seen an interesting trend recently in bathroom designs and that is: clients removing bath tubs in favor of luxuriously spacious walk-in showers. I don't think tubs are on their way out (I am currently doing a master bath that includes a beautiful, sculptural free-standing bath tub) but clearly people want elbow room when they shower. And my client's bathroom in this post (with a 10-foot ceiling height!) certainly has the space!

This client has tubs in other bathrooms in the house should anyone want to take a soak, so she really wanted a roomy, barrier-free shower in the master bathroom. We removed a large tub and claimed that space for a wonderful pre-shower area. And thankfully she was very open to my design ideas which included continuous flooring material (linen-striated ceramic tiles) covering the entire bathroom and running into the zero-clearance shower with a hidden, tiled drain; opulent, large-format, marble-patterned wall tiles; a glass wall shower enclosure; modern mirrors with integrated LED lights; and a glamorous but tailored chandelier to infuse sophistication and luxury to this sleek, minimalist space. The new room based on a relaxing blue and cream color palette is light, bright, and uncluttered. These days, the ultimate luxury is not having a space full of things, but having a space that is simply full of space!

If you have a bathroom in need of a shower make-over, give me a call!
Happy designing!
