A well-designed master bathroom can be an oasis in your home. Unlike the other restrooms of the house, the master suite should be catered to you and your desires. When done right, it can be both functional and beautiful on top of adding big bucks to your house or condo’s value.


With so many elements happening in a master bathroom, it’s a great place to customize to your taste. There is a lot of creative leeway and millions of options to suite both your daily needs and design palate. Elevate the look and feel of your master bath by installing dual vessel sinks on top of a repurposed vanity. Using a restored dresser or hutch in lieu of a traditional vanity can save you money and add a lot more storage options, plus they can be painted or stained to match your décor.

Another focal point of the master bath is the shower. Leave behind the plastic shower surrounds and ditch the curtains, instead opt for a tiled shower enclosed with glass doors. Adding a strip of accent tiles can turn your shower into a work of art and glass doors bring added light to make the whole room look larger. Dual shower heads and any high-tech feature like integrated speakers definitely up the wow factor of your master bath.


Though it may not seem like a big deal with all the other things to consider while remodeling your bathroom, where your toilet sits is an important decision. Designers suggest that when you walk into your master bathroom that the toilet isn’t the first thing you see. Try hiding it in a cut-out nook or close to the door to give the bathroom the great first impression it deserves.

Versatile Lighting is Key

Adding adjustable lighting creates a more multifunctional room. Too much bright light can be jarring and wipe out any chance of the master bathroom being a soothing retreat. Install recessed lights over the shower and wall lights over the vanity, then compliment the space with softer lights around the toilet and tub. If the room allows, try a chandelier with soft light over the tub as a luxurious and functional décor piece. If you’re working with a smaller bathroom, try installing a dimmer switch to get the most from your single light fixture.
