Bath Tub

Beautiful Bath

    This calming master bath is a mix of vintage styles and modern amenities. The tub, surrounded by beaded board and hexagonal floor tile, is a focal point. It's a self-cleaning whirlpool model with massage features and a great view of a flat-panel TV hidden in a nearby upper cabinet.

Walk-In Shower

    Partial walls provide a degree of privacy in the shower and toilet area while letting light and air circulate. Tile is a water-resistant material that is a great choice in the bath. Here tile covers the entire shower interior, including the ceiling.

Towel Hooks

    Along the back of the shower wall, three hooks provide a simple, stylish way to store towels. Their proximity to the shower means there is always a towel within reach. The retro-look hooks and beaded-board panels are among the vintage touches in the bath.

Built-In Vanity

    An elegantly arched and paneled surround sets off the long vanity area. Built-in cabinets and drawers offer plenty of storage at each end of the vanity. Open center shelves provide quick access to towels.

Tile Countertop

    White subway tile countertops add to the bath's vintage cottage charm. And a long vanity provides plenty of space to display flowers and decorative items.

Built-In Storage

    At the end of a short hallway to the master bedroom, a linen closet was replaced with a space-efficient built-in armoire. Its location between the bath and bedroom makes it perfectly suited to store extra sheets and towels. An arched display niche above the armoire showcases the homeowners' shell collection.

7/11
Add a Window Seat

    A window seat provides a comfortable place to sit and relax in the bathroom. Drawers below the window seat maximize storage. A column of cabinetry separates the window seat and the bathtub, creating visual interest and much-needed storage. The wide trim and moldings add to the room's historic feel.

8/11
Cool Colors

    The simple color scheme -- blue and white -- creates a clean and crisp contrast that makes the space feel vibrant and open, but also cozy. The hexagonal floor tiles complement the bathroom's vintage style.

9/11
Beach Accessories

    Use the ledge of wall trim to display small items. Here a series of candles and starfish amplifies the relaxing beach-front feel of the bath.

10/11
Easy-Access Storage

    The cabinets bookending the vanity open from two sides. The feature makes it easy to grab bath necessities, even if someone else is using the vanity.
