Our Master Bath Design and Finishes

Design: Studio McGee

Designing our master bath has been lots of fun! We are doing a few different design touches that are new to us and hoping it all comes together as planned. Don’t you just love when you have this vision and it it ends up turning out perfectly. Well, that doesn’t always happen, but this is one place we will be so excited it it does.

A master bath is somewhere we actually spend quite a bit of time with it being one of the first places you enter after waking and one of the first places you will go before going to bed. I don’t know about you, but I envision a master bath to be tranquil, calming, and maybe even a little luxurious.

Here is our mood board for our new master bath.

Curbless Shower

We are very excited about the curbless shower. This will be our first go around with installing one. We love the concept and design and think it will be perfect for the look we are going for. We’re using a marble mosaic tile on the floor that will run right into the shower, and the show walls will have a marble look tile.

Black Freestanding Tub

We have also went safe and used a regular white freestanding tub as we do in our current farmhouse, but for our new master bathroom we are going bold and using black.

The contrast with the lighter colored tile should look amazing against the black tub. Don’t worry, the inside will be white and still easy to clean.

Black Fixtures

Throughout the entire bathroom we will be using black fixtures. This includes both plumbing and light fixtures. Due to a lighter color palette on the walls, flooring, and countertop, we felt that using black would be a nice contrast. I am most excited about our tub filler. Even though it may not get used tons, that is going to be eye candy!

And all of the black finishes should tie in nicely with the three black windows above the tub. Our tub/window set up is much like this one from Studio McGee:

Wood Vanity

We chose to go with a wood vanity for the master bathroom. We will be doing a one piece vanity with double sinks. Our goal was for the vanity to look much like a piece of furniture. Using wood will add lots of warmth into the room. In my opinion, every room needs some wood. The wood will help break up the black and create a nice contrast. We plan to go with a little more modern look on the vanity, but we’re still in search for the perfect one.

    Love everything about this design! One question, do you guys typically design your own vanities to have custom made or do you try to find one already made (PB, Wayfair, etc.)?

      Thank you so much. Glad you like it! We normally get them pre-made, but I’ve always loved the idea of having one custom made.

      What manufacturer and style windows did you use on your black interior and exterior windows?
      I also noticed in the bathroom you used white locks – love it.

    Beautiful choices! When you mentioned a black tub the other day, I was hoping it was white inside having cleaned a inside black tub years ago!

      Hello Guerrina! Thank you so much for the kind words! That is so funny because you were not alone, lots of people were saying the same thing. Im hoping it will not be too bad to clean. We are really excited about it all coming together.

    Would you mind sharing the dimensions of your seamless shower? Are there any best practices for sizing out a big shower like that? We are doing similar (inspired by you!) but are trying to figure out if there are minimum dimension sizes for us to think about. Currently debating a 36″ x 48″ area for the shower. Thoughts?
