His and Her Master Bathroom – Ahhh

This master bath was supposed to be grandeur, but it wasn’t.

BEFORE you even entered your eyes saw nothing but an immensely over-sized raised and sunken and jetted bathtub. It had 4 12”x12” columns and 12” surround and 22” high. You had to climb up 2 steps just to step down into the sunken tub.

Builder-grade his and her granite vanities flanked the bathtub on opposite sides of the room. Hidden behind the giant bathtub, was an open half-circle shower.


Original set up of the master bathroom.


For the “her” side of the space, I replaced the bathtub with an average size soaking tub next to a bubble tile wall with a stand alone faucet.

On the “his” side I used reclaimed wood mosaic. Against the wall is a white bench, a couple of hooks, a shelf and a mirror. A nod to a gentleman’s locker room. His closet is next to his vanity, so everything for him is right there on his side.

I enclosed the shower and added doors, each one opening from the proper side. The vanities evolved from being white quartz to custom made-in-place cement tops.
