Our Modern Tudor clients are no strangers to traveling. Because of this, the homeowners have developed a love for beautiful and luxurious hotels. For many spaces in their home, we wanted to give them that elevated, sophisticated design that you would see in a 5-star hotel. One room we made sure included this? Their master bathroom.
We’re firm believers that your home should be your sanctuary, and your bathroom can truly become the ultimate retreat when you head a busy lifestyle. Today, we’ve rounded our favorite tips to designing a master bathroom that’s indulgent, gorgeous, and a hotel-like experience.
Our Luxurious Bathroom Tips
1. Plush Towels
It’s time to splurge! Who doesn’t love how beautiful the folded towels look whenever you walk into your freshly cleaned Luxury Hotel or Spa? Soft and luxurious but also ultra absorbing is what we’re going for here.
2. Luxe Lighting
Ample overhead and task lighting are key, but look best they are done in an elegant way. We used a beautiful bronze sconce about the vanity that can be moved and adjusted. This is especially useful for the homeowner when she’s doing her makeup or hair!
The main vanities also feature toe-kick lighting that illuminates the way for the couple at night, creating a very relaxing and spa like atmosphere.
3. Marble – The Timeless Beauty
Classic and elegant, marble is always a great choice for a master bathroom. Not only does it have a sophisticated look, but it is water-resistant and can also add value to your entire home. For this master bathroom, we played with using marble on the floors and the walls.
We wanted it to also be a place where both homeowners felt comfortable which is why we incorporated both masculine and feminine details with a spacious wet room that includes a freestanding tub and large shower.

Shower Walls: Firenze Carrara Honed Marble Wall and Floor Tile for the Shower Walls
4. The Little Things
It’s all in the details and unexpected moments! For this space, the tub fills from the ceiling which ultra unique and show stopping! The subtle but elegant styling is also something that shouldn’t be taken lightly, though it does create that light and airy feel.
5. Welcoming Warmth
Since bathrooms typically play with cooler tones in the tile and plumbing fixtures (i.e. tubs, toilets, sinks, etc.) we always like to incorporate darker, warmer hues to the space to counteract that and soften up the space. In this project, we did this through the custom oak vanity, brass lighting, and plumbing fixtures. We love that it makes the room feel just as inviting and comfortable as the rest of the home.
