Master Your Master Bath


Let’s admit something: master bathrooms serve as a sanctuary to many of us. And, according to REALTOR® Mag, they are often a driving force in a buyer’s purchase decision.

 

Today’s master bathrooms are influenced by the following seven style categories, all creating an atmosphere of personal indulgence.

 

Aesthetic

4428 Greenbrier Drive | Dallas | $1,798,000

Personal preference usually leads the way in the creation of the master bath. However, these days the preference seems to be classical or historic styling, with industrial or rustic elements being introduced: wood-grain accents, pendant lights and other smaller touches.

 

Fixtures

Fixtures such as tubs and sinks are now kept to a simple rectangular shape.

 

Cabinetry

3826 Medallion Lane | Dallas – Walnut Hill Highlands | $1,649,000

More cabinets are being fitted with drawers rather than doors to make accessing contents easier, which follows the trend in kitchens.

 

Faucets

5504 Burkett Drive | Frisco – Starwood | $1,250,000

Though chrome and nickel are still appealing to most, rose gold, bronze, oil-rubbed bronze, and brushed gold are the trending faucet finishes to consider.

 

Lighting

Say bye-bye to glitzy chandeliers. Choices now include subtle pendants and sconces.

 

Color and texture

White will forever remain a favorite palette for master baths, but color experts cite trends that now lean towards less pure options such as a warm taupe. Experts also see an increase in tone-on-tone brushed effects. Regarding rugs, introduce texture with Turkish oushak or faux animal rugs.

 

Walls, floors and countertops

Subway tiles remain the classic choice for bathroom walls, but they’re becoming larger than than the traditional 3-by-6-inch size. Floors are also being laid with larger-format tiles, while granite countertops are disappearing and marble is becoming irresistible.

Feature We Love: Neutral Bathroom


While it may seem safe, it’s a bold decision to choose to decorate a space completely in neutrals. A neutral color pallet suggests cleanliness and a sense of order, which has an especially big impact in bathrooms.

 

While there are many merits to colorful spaces, a crisp bathroom done out in a simple color scheme feels soothing and spacious. Implementing this design technique creates a spa-like feel that will be a refreshing way to wake up for years to come.
