This bathroom had been remodeled about 20 years ago as part of a large addition and consists of three separate zones – 1) tub zone, 2) vanity/storage zone and 3) shower and water closet zone.

What is the best way to design a primary bathroom?
The room layout and zones had to remain the same, but the goal was to make each area more functional. In addition, having comfortable access to the tub and seating in the tub area was also high on the list, as the tub serves an important part of the daily routine for the homeowners and their son with special needs.
Consider comfort first
We started our remodeling process in the tub room and determined that an undermount tub and flush deck would be much more functional and comfortable for entering and exiting the tub than the existing drop in tub with its protruding lip. Next, a redundant radiator was eliminated allowing room for a large comfortable chair integral to the daily bathing routine.
2. Make space
In the vanity and storage zone, existing vanities neither optimized the space nor provided much real storage. A few tweaks netted a much better solution that now includes cabinets, drawers, and pull outs. A large custom built-in hutch houses towels and other bathroom necessities and a large framed mirror opens the space and bounces light around the room.
3. Create maximum accessibility
Finally, we transformed the shower and water closet room into a large walk in shower with a trench drain, making for easy access and a seamless look. We added a niche for shampoo storage to the back wall, and updated shower fixtures to give the space new life.
4. Choose one key piece
The star of the show is the beautiful marble mosaic floor tile. The other materials take a simpler approach allowing the circular pattern of the mosaic to work its magic. White shaker cabinetry is topped with elegant Calacatta marble countertops that also line the shower walls. Polished nickel fixtures and crystal lighting are a simple yet sophisticated touch.
