Once upon a time bathrooms were the rooms that were never mentioned. They were functional, necessary, and very private. Master bathrooms are still very private, but they are much more than merely “functional” these days. And powder rooms (or guest bathrooms) are anything but dull.
The bathrooms in our homes are important because they get a lot of use. It’s no big surprise that the two most remodeled rooms in any home in the U.S. are the kitchen and the bathroom.
The Master Bathroom is a big deal because it’s a very personal and private space. It’s where you get yourself ready for the day in the morning and it’s also where you wind down at night. It should be a place of comfort and convenience. If you look at the image above you’ll notice a room that has lots of space. There’s no crowding and it’s a very relaxing room. Something else you’ll notice (if you look carefully) is that it’s a space that will allow the residents to feel comfortable for a long time. The step-in shower eliminates tripping dangers, and the built-in seat in the shower (with grab bar) makes this a shower will be safe and comfortable for many years.
You may also notice that there is plenty of space for a couple to get ready to face the day (or to relax before retiring for the night). There’s no crowding and there is room to spread out without getting in the way of your partner.
The Powder Room is an important room as well. This is the bathroom your guests will use on a regular basis. What makes the powder room so special is that it doesn’t have to conform to any traditions or expectations. Many homeowners take advantage of that and turn their powder rooms into fun, playful expressions of their own creativity. Your powder room is it’s own domain. You can experiment with sink styles or other décor and create an enchanting place that guests will enjoy (even if they don’t talk about it).
