Designed to look like an ordinary room that had been retrofitted to serve as a bathroom, this master bath has an unconventional floor plan. The clawfoot tub sits at an angle that offers a view of the two-sided fireplace. Behind the tub, mirrored doors conceal storage.
Twin vanities and a built-in dressing table are intended to look like tables. Pleated skirts hide storage. The corner opposite the tub accommodates a 6x7-foot steam shower.
There is a separate toilet compartment but the master bath also connects to a powder room that leads to the home's public spaces. This gives the owners the option of having two separate toilets in the master suite.
