Need help designing a master bath in this small 10' x 9' space
January 16, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I need help redesigning a master bath. This area originally had an oversized tub in front of the window area, toilet and sink. The space is small 8' x 9'. Would like colors other than earth tone. The bed room will have wood floor and dark furniture. I would prefer a shower over a tub, and double sinks would be nice. All ideas are welcome. Please help !!

It is hard for me to give advice from these two photos, but here is something I really want to share with you based on past experiences with design clients.

Please.... just a word of advice from a design professional. Please do not hire any plumbers, electricians, etc. to do any more work until you have the whole bathroom planned out including finishes, fixtures, floor plans, etc.

Also for resale value, I highly recommend finding space for a tub, even if it is only a soaker or claw foot. Although I am not a realtor, this is what I have heard over and over again from real estate professionals.

I wish you the best of luck on your renovation!

You call this a master, so I have to assume you have another full bath. Families are wanting of a tub for the children, but i think in the master it isn't so necessary.
Definitely go for clear glass shower doors and NOT the old frosted sliding kind!
Some of the he newer tiles, with glass embeddded throw a beautiful subtle light and also enhance the feeling of 'space'.
A double sink is much more valuable to couples than a tub

That should be fine considered there are other full baths in the house.

A open shower that doesn't need glass would be nice. I hate water spots. There are so many pics of them on this sight I'm sure you will see one you like.

I also think that glass shower doors would be nice giving your room more brighter and wider look. Here are some bathroom vanities you may like. Check our website for more.
