Project Bae: A Bright Master Bath

This project, project bae, was named for it’s large bay windows, and a fun play on words because I swoon over this space and spent so much time with it while it was all in progress ;)

Shower with Bay Windows (1)

When my client first reached out to me for this space, the bathroom was large but inefficiently used, especially for their needs. We decided on a layout to maximize the space and give them the dream shower they had been pining for.

Those large bay windows mentioned above used to surround a garden tub that really didn’t get a lot of use. The shower was the size of a linen closet, and the cabinetry in this master bath was a small single vanity and a tall linen cabinet.


Here’s what we did to make it function better for the client’s needs:

  • We changed the location of the entrance to the bathroom and turned the small shower into a linen closet right outside the door.

  • We took out the cabinetry and made space for a large double vanity to give “yours and mine” zones, appropriate for a master suite.

  • We took out that massive built in tub and replaced it with an even larger shower!

  • For privacy, we slightly shortened the windows, frosted some of the glass and placed a small custom shower curtain in the center window for added privacy when needed.

  • Visually, we replaced all the tile, finishes and accessories throughout the space to complete the look!

What do you think? Would you be thankful for a master bath like this in your home? I hope you all have a happy and healthy Thanksgiving holiday!
