Last month, I attended NAHB’s midyear meeting in Miami and had the pleasure of sitting in on a presentation by Daniel Swift, president and CEO of Des Moines-based architecture group BSB Design.
Kitchen & Bath Design: Master Bath Makeover
Expanding this bath just enough for an upscale shower, deep tub, more storage, and separate his-and-hers vanities provides the spa-like atmosphere homebuyers want.
Space in this master bath plan was very tight and offered very few of the spa-like amenities that new-home buyers are seeking. Pushing the bath’s entrance into the hallway and replacing a tub that has a very large deck gives the room a significant increase in usable area. A large and luxurious glass-enclosed shower is now the focal point of the room, and there is still enough space for a good-sized tub. His-and-hers vanities (and a special makeup area for her) provide additional touches of luxury that buyers crave.
