The original space of this master suite was the epitome of an outdated design. The homeowner’s desired to have a luxurious, personal natural oasis bathroom to escape. Their requests included: use of modern, yet warm & natural use of materials in an interesting way, better lighting, larger shower, better function of space and easy maintenance. A monochromatic color scheme helped convey the desired soothing environment of their place of reprieve. Minimalist cabinets, faucets and fixtures set the perfect backdrop for the varied tile design and assorted depths of travertine tiles.

Custom Linen Cabinet
The tall cabinetry near the bedroom door stores toiletries and linens. Dual hampers below ease the challenges of sorting on laundry days. The Whitmor hampers can be found on Amazon, Walmart and various other online retailers.
A maple frame wraps a panel of Prairie Grass by Lumicor for privacy at the toilet area, it additionally allows light to flow throughout the space. With minimal, warm details like this panel the room feels like a natural oasis bathroom.
Efficiency with Lighting & Spatial Plan
One of the most serious debates to update the design was the vaulted ceiling and trapezoid windows above the tub. First the ceiling was dropped to a flat 9’ high. To overcome the loss of the light from the trapezoid window, the walls surrounding the tub were filled with windows; achieving more light, and view!
An additional window was added between the vanities to increase the flow of light and spaciousness of the bathroom. Pella windows with integrated blinds were chosen to minimize maintenance and details in the relaxing natural oasis style bathroom.
Maple veneer plywood was used for the cabinetry and the unique mirror surrounds – the tall mirrors blend into the space while lifting the visual height of the ceiling. Sconce lighting helps the client with the perfect balance of task lighting at the sinks.
