    • Calming Waters

      Although some couples forgo full-size tubs to save space, these homeowners opted for a tub that would be large enough to soak sore muscles after a long day on the lake. Positioning the tub under large, double-hung windows creates a grand focal point for the room, while transom shades placed on the lower windows provide a sense of privacy.

    • Lakeside Beauty

      A pair of glass-panel French doors lead from the master bedroom to the spacious master bathroom. Cool blue tones throughout the bathroom help connect it with the home's beachy atmosphere and lakefront location.

    • Paneled to Perfection

      Shelving surrounding the tub helps the room feel more like a living space. Tongue-and-groove paneling -- a more sophisticated alternative to standard beaded board -- covers the walls and the back of the recessed shelving unit and adds visual interest by playing off the home's beach-cottage aesthetic.

    • Fabulous Fixtures

      Centered on the tub surround, the effervescent air tub's fixtures are easy to access and help maintain a semblance of symmetry. The polished-nickel arch-style faucet looks clean and complements the cool blue color of the walls and floor tiles.

    • Personal Space

      Two long counters flank each side of the bathroom, offering each of the homeowners their own vanity space. This vanity features a spacious sink and countertop as well as a handy sit-down area for makeup application. Subdued gray-blue limestone countertops balance the more mottled finish of the limestone flooring tiles.

    • Open Up

      Without a linen closet in the master bedroom, in-bath storage was a necessity. This vanity boasts tall cabinets on both sides that serve as storage space for linens, toiletries, and other bathroom necessities. Open storage below the countertop breaks up the potentially heavy look that would have been created by a wall of cabinetry. Outfitted with large baskets, the open shelf is a convenient spot to store towels.

    • Luxurious Retreat

      The walk-in shower features two showerheads and is outfitted in the same limestone as the countertops. A recessed niche holds shampoo and other toiletries, while a corner bench provides a spot to take a seat after a long day on the lake.
