A bathroom barely bigger than a powder room expands into a grand luxury suite. The focal point is a huge wet room that houses a big, deep soaker tub and his/her shower heads and body sprays. Recycled granite highlights the tub wall, while three different types of tile are blended to create a unique "rug" in the shower area. Elegant, DIY candle lanterns are suspended above the tub, and an arched entry into the shower with three glass panels finish off the space and keeps the rest of the room dry. Opposite the shower sits a huge double sink vanity, featuring a soapstone countertop and plenty of cabinets and drawers for storage. The space is enhanced with two large mirrors with built-in light strips, pendants above each sink, and floating shelves in the space between mirrors. One of the mirrors even features a TV. A DIY string pendant provides unique lighting in the new water closet, and a DIY towel rack built with Ipe adds a final, functional feature.
The current bathroom for these homeowners is small and needs to get bigger, fast. They use this space not only for everyday use, but also as a changing area for their pool. Adding unused bedroom space helps give the new design the spa experience this couple wanted. A wet room with dual-music playing showerheads and hydrotherapy bed sit on one side of the room. A sunken, soaker tub becomes a relaxation spot, which sits next to a fire and water feature that are lined with granite walls. If that's not enough, a fireplace divides the room from the master bedroom. A separate changing room for the pool sits next to the new exterior entrance, which is completely redone with fresh landscaping, hot tub and outdoor shower.
