Contemporary Master Bath Project

I think a bathroom is one of the largest projects you can undertake. There is plumbing, electrical, tiling, installation of cabinets and shower enclosures. In this bath I also did a heated floor. It’s more complex than a kitchen even if a kitchen costs more because of all the appliances and cabinetry.

The original bathroom was really not that bad, but the ‘80s was calling for it to come back. Builder grade materials and style. I mean, check out the classic oak vanities, sheet mirror, and fake tile floor. You can’t hear the squeaks caused by insufficient screws holding the plywood floor down.

So we start from the bottom and work up.

Notice a few things: First, I’m planning to install floating vanities (no feet touch the floor). This makes the room look larger. So I’ve built a small knee-wall that will both insulate the plumbing and serve to support the vanity.
Second, you can see the heating mat on the floor. I used a Nuheat mat system. They customize the mat to exactly fit the room.

I could not just put in a square pattern of tiles. My wife suggested this offset pattern that gives movement and direction to the floor. The tile is laid right over the heating mat.

The shower stall used to have a wall on the side closest to the door. I’ve removed the wall replaced it with a half wall that has a inset shelf on the inside of the shower. This will keep shampoos and conditioner bottles hidden.

The plan is for a clear glass shower stall that will make the room seem even larger.

And finally the vanities are installed. My wife had this brilliant idea to add an 1’ wide tall cabinet next to each vanity for storage. This has proven to be the most useful feature in the room. Sink tops are easy to keep clear and the room always looks nice.

That’s a beautiful build. One thing that I find that bathrooms pose a challenge to me is the lack of proper storage space. Anybody have good solutions for built-in solutions that maximise the space?

Great idea and implementation. The bathroom looks really modern and stylish. Feels like you’re in Hilton hotel :) I like storage where you can keep cosmetics, electric shaver or trimmer, towels and almost everything you need. Great design!
