Combining Function & Luxury: Master Bathroom Remodeling
Are you interested in remodeling or renovating your master bathroom? Whether it’s surface-level and involves installing new countertops and shelving or an entirely new design, Wentworth can help you make your dream bathroom a reality!
Master bathrooms should be a place of function and luxury, a room that suits your unique needs and tastes. Master bathrooms do not always mean more space, but they should be comfortable and spacious enough for everyday use. With the right master bathroom remodel, your bathroom can become an extraordinary room, perfect for a busy morning or a relaxing Sunday afternoon.
Showers & Tubs in Master Bathroom Remodeling
People use soaking tubs or whirlpool tubs less than they did twenty years ago, and this is especially true of homes in the Washington, DC area, where space is at a premium. Large shower stalls, often known as “walk-in showers,” are a much better space solution in a master bath. A large, walk-in shower is not only aesthetically beautiful, but also provides much-needed storage. It can also become a highly functional roll-in shower for homeowners who wish to age in place. To construct a roll-in shower for a recent Wentworth client, we cut open the floor and reframed the shower to eliminate the need for a curb, thus creating an entrance large enough for a wheelchair or walker.
Sinks & Vanities in Master Bathroom Remodeling
Many homeowners look for double sinks in a master bath suite. Fortunately, doubles sinks are not the only way to add convenience to your master bathroom. Vanity cabinets should always have drawers, and maintenance-free countertop materials are preferable. Any design should give consideration to the splash created from the sink onto adjacent walls.
Necessary Details in Master Bathroom Remodeling
When a homeowner decides it’s time for a master bathroom remodel, we understand the value of paying attention to every detail, from toilet placement to lighting. When it comes to a necessity like the toilet, placement is the key to a functional and attractive bathroom. Although the toilet’s location will be affected by the location of the existing waster stack, a smart design can ensure the toilet is as unobtrusive as possible. A master bathroom remodeling design may include a toilet screened by a low wall or a frosted glass panel. In a larger bathroom, a separate compartment for the toilet (known as a “water closet”) is a discrete and pleasing solution.
Lighting in Master Bathroom Remodeling
Lighting is critical in a new bathroom, and the proper lighting brings a sense of calm to a room that can sometimes be hectic. The use of natural lighting is key to a naturally beautiful bathroom design, and we try to utilize skylights and clerestory windows to gain natural light and retain privacy. Even when gaining natural light proves impossible, a smart lighting design can give a bathroom a much-needed light boost. Both down lights at the ceiling and ceiling-mounted light fixtures provide overhead light, and wall lighting should take the form of sconces.
Flooring in Master Bathroom Remodeling
Even a bathroom floor is an important design feature in a master bathroom remodel. The ideal bathroom floor, whether ceramic tile, porcelain tile or natural stone, can handle everyday spills and wet feet. Although electric or hot water radiant heated floors are an added expense, the luxurious feature ensures you’ll never have cold feet about your new bathroom again.
