Design Essentials for a Modern Master Bathroom

The master bathroom should feel luxurious and energetic. Although you want everything to be functional, when you design a master bathroom, you’re allowed to put a bit more emphasis on items that make you feel good. These essentials will turn your master bathroom into a relaxing, modern sanctuary.

Statement Pieces

To create a modern master bathroom, you need to have a mix of glamorous statement pieces, as well as some subtle accents that will create the perfect atmosphere. Keep your design simple and stick to just a few big items. By keeping the color scheme light, bright, clean, and neutral, you have more leeway to include some bigger statement pieces.

Modern Master Bathroom

Bathtub and Large Shower

The ultimate sign-on luxury is to have a stand-alone tub. A simple, clean, and minimalistic silhouette will make the bathroom feel more modern. The oversized tub that’s simple in design will make everything feel more sophisticated. 

Another modern design essential is the oversized shower. Giving yourself lots of room for each master bath activity will make everything feel more glamorous and chic. Glass doors and tile to accentuate the shower is a fun way to add a bit of color and interest to a majority white and neutral bathroom. 

Large Sink and Countertop

Make your sink choice just as glamorous as your bathtub. Let the sink be a statement piece. Choose a sink that is interesting in design, but still functional and in line with the modern style. Find a sculptural sink and pair it with a natural countertop material, like granite or marble. 

Modern Master Bathroom


Mirrors are essential in any bathroom. In a master bath, the mirrors should be functional and artistic. Oversized mirrors will make the room feel bigger, and they will help disperse the light, so create the right mood. Make sure that they are in proportion to the room. If they are too big, they can have the opposite effect and make the room feel too small for the mirrors. Choose a shape that will flow with the rest of the design lines in the room, creating a nice flow. 

Custom Storage

The final essential in a master bath is a storage space that is unique to the needs of the master bath. Storage should flow with the master bathroom and feel like an organic part of the design. The storage should be functional and eliminate any clutter. Any clutter will cheapen the master bathroom and destroy the zen you are trying to create.

Finding an Interior Designer to Design your Dream Home

Visiting a kitchen showroom can give you great insights into styles, trends, and cost, but it can still be overwhelming. Just because it looks good in the showroom doesn’t mean that it will work for your home or your lifestyle. That is why our services include working with a professional and skilled interior design expert. While you’re researching interior design trends, take a minute to browse through our designers to see if there’s someone that catches your eye. Here’s what you should be looking for to get paired with a designer from The Kitchen Showcase so you can get started on designing your dream home.

Choosing an Interior Designer

The first thing you need to look for in an interior designer is a similar palette and style. Check out all of our designers to find the one that shares a similar aesthetic to you. Of course, all of our designers are versatile, so they will work from your likes and dislikes to create something that is custom designed for you. Another important aspect is to have a great rapport with your designer and to figure that out, you’ll need to meet.

Product Knowledge

There are so many products, materials, and styles to choose from and it’s important to work with someone who understands the pros and cons of each. Find a designer that has excellent knowledge of all products from cabinets, countertops, to tiny knobs and pulls. Every detail of a home remodel is important. Find a designer that is detail-oriented and knowledgable about all aspects of the industry.


Seeing designers work will give you great insight into their style and skill, but you shouldn’t be afraid to ask questions when you meet. You want to work with a designer that listens to your wants and concerns.

Open Space Bathroom Concept Benefits

Freestanding tub

There is nothing more exciting than starting a new remodeling project. Bathroom and kitchen renovations are among the most popular and common home remodeling projects between Colorado homeowners. They are both critical rooms in your house. Therefore, a good remodeling project should enhance your home while boosting its curb appeal.

In the last years, the open bathroom concept has become one of the most popular bathroom renovations. It is a great way to add an interesting and different social area to your home. However, it has been called to our attention at the Kitchen Showcase, that even though most of our clients like the idea, not all of them feel if it is their accurate choice. Therefore, we would like to share some benefits of remodeling your bathroom to an open concept.

Creating an Open Space Bathroom

There is nothing more relaxing than an open space bathroom design.

What seemed to be important in house design and comfort trends might not coincide with what families and homeowners are looking for today. Taking advantage of your entire home’s areas is essential today, especially when looking for a social environment. An open-plan bedroom/bathroom allows interacting with others while you get ready.

Here are some of the most interesting benefits you can obtain by installing an open-plan bedroom-bathroom.

Bigger and Wider Bathroom

Taking down dividing walls from your old bathroom is a great way to have the decent and comfortable sized bathroom you always wanted. Plus, it not only opens up space, but it also gives you the ability to move around freely, not feeling cluttered, which is a great way to relieve some stress.

Create a Perfect Cozy Atmosphere

Open space bathrooms are cozy and elegant.

Having a built-in fireplace in your bedroom, enjoying the heat while you are relaxing in the bathroom is just a simple idea of how to change the ambiance, and create a delicate, cozy environment.

This device warms the entire area, making it easier to move between the warmth of your bed to get ready in the morning. You won’t need to hurry anymore for dressing after a hot bath or shower before you get cold again with this great concept.

Watch TV While Bathing

Why eliminate luxuries from your everyday routine? This configuration allows you to watch your favorite shows or series, or catch up on the news in the mornings while you take a shower or relax in your bathtub.

All in all an open-bath plan gives your bathroom a new spa-like feel. It will no longer be a purely practical zone, giving space to interact with others while enjoying your luxury devices, such as a fireplace or TV.

If you want to give your bathroom more space, versatility, and visual aesthetics, contact experts at The Kitchen Showcase. We are your professional remodeling contractor that is well able not only to meet your needs but also build the bathroom of your dreams!

Remodeling the Bathroom Gives Great Returns

Freestanding tub

When you move into a new house, it’s understood that you are taking over a space that has been used before. However, there are some things that you want to be new, like the bathroom. Remodeling the bathroom when you are selling is one of the most profitable projects.

Remodeling the bathroom before selling

The return on a remodeled bathroom is incredible. Many sellers will see a return of almost 60% on a remodeled bathroom. When people buy a new home, there is nothing more attractive than a sparkling new bathroom. Knowing that you will be the first people to use the bathroom has a positive psychological effect. Plus, you can make modern upgrades that are attractive to any buyer.

Modern upgrades

Make the bathroom as spacious and efficient as possible. Clean, minimalistic design is a modern-day favorite. Make it luxurious and open, giving people enough space to feel comfortable and relaxed in the bathroom. Built-in and thoughtfully designed storage is a must. Make it efficient, so that everything flows.

Luxury items

A freestanding tub is a luxury item that will make the bathroom feel much more expensive and grand. Enhance the glamour with a double sink and natural stone countertops. Adding natural elements will make the bathroom feel like a sanctuary, relaxed, and stress-free. The efficiency of the double sink will also appeal to buyers. The cherry on top, or the bottom, is going to be in-floor heating. Lighting can also enhance the ambiance, as well as the efficiency of the bathroom.

Remodel bathroom
Add character with tiled flooring.

Tiled backsplash and flooring

Keep the color scheme bright and straightforward. Add a bit of drama and character with a tiled wall or backsplash, just like in the kitchen. Tiles are also easy to maintain and clean, and can easily handle fluctuating moisture and temperatures. Tile flooring can also add some character and unique flair to a sleek, modern remodeled bathroom.

Bathroom Design is Going Back to Basics

Designing master bathroom

Clean and simple are the major trends in bathroom design, but just because it is simple doesn’t mean it has to be boring. You can still add a little excitement to your bathroom, as long as you keep the overall look clean. Let’s look at the design trends that are making their way back into the bathroom.

Kitchen cabinets

Clean and minimalistic design

Just like in the kitchen, light, neutral tones are still the most popular bathroom colors. You want your bathroom to feel clean, and working with white tones is a great way to do that. Adding a few softer hues to the white, like neutrals or grays, can break up the white so it doesn’t feel too stark. Just remember to keep the color scheme simple, so the bathroom isn’t too busy. If you’re looking to add a splash of color, think about getting some brightly colored towels and funky bath mats.

Matte hardware and fixtures

You can use your choice of hardware and fixtures to add some excitement to your bathroom. Instead of shiny metals for the hardware, look at matte brass to add a warmer and more rustic element to your bathroom. You don’t want the bathroom to feel cold, and using warmer hues can make your bathroom feel warmer and more inviting.

Open shelving

Batroom remodels in Denver by The Kitchen ShowcaseGone are the bottom cabinets and medicine cabinets. They’re too clunky and take up too much space. Typically, the bathroom has limited space, so to open it up, think about open shelving instead of cabinets. By keeping your storage spaces open, you make your bathroom feel roomier. Of course, you don’t just want a floating sink, and having a cabinet fill the space under the sink is another great use of space. Modern bathroom cabinets will have clean, simple lines that will perfectly blend with the clean and minimalistic design style of your bathroom.

Great lighting

Think about having different types of lighting for all the different tasks that you perform in your bathroom. You can have simple overhead lighting for when you are just making a pit stop, but you also want to have some special lighting for when you need to apply your makeup, style your hair, or pluck your eyebrows.

Creating More Space in Your Bathroom

Designing a bathroom

In the past, bathrooms had almost the same treatment as a utility room. Today’s bathroom designers are looking to turn your bathroom into a private spa experience. The bathroom should exude comfort and relaxation. By removing all barriers from the design, we can create balance and flow, as well as create more space in your bathroom.

Walk-in Shower

Typically, your bathroom floors are broken up by a barrier around your shower. However, by eliminating this barrier, you create the illusion of more space and a better flow in your bathroom. Having your bathroom tiled floor flow directly and smoothly into your shower is the latest trend in bathroom design. You just literally walk-in under the shower as you walk freely around the bathroom.
The no-threshold shower used to be reserved for people with disabilities or mobility problems when having to step up and over would present a problem. However, modern bathroom renovations are starting to take this trend and make it part of every bathroom design.

Freestanding Bathtubs

Becoming ever so popular again, in both ultra-modern and traditional style as on the photo. The same effect can be created by having a free-standing bathtub and not working in a threshold or a barrier around your tub.

More options for floor tiles and design

Choosing the perfect bathtub
The latest bathroom design trend is a shower without a barrier. Create a bigger bathroom and a more calm atmosphere.

With the barrier-free shower, the tiles you are using in the main part of your bathroom can now be continued all the way into your shower. Typically, because of drainage, smaller tiles have been used to create a four-way slope to the center drain. With the trend towards a barrier-free walk-in shower, designers are designing one cohesive bathroom floor that will gently slope towards one linear drain.
Using bigger tiles and having one-floor design covering the entirety of your bathroom will also open up your bathroom making it feel more spacious and calm. With one large floor surface, homeowners will have more choices to choose from, as they don’t have to take edges, thresholds, and barriers into consideration.

Barrier-free bathroom floors are easier to clean

A single big, smooth bathroom floor without any thresholds or barriers will make cleaning your floors much easier, as it eliminates corners and edges for dirt to gather.

Modern Design Tips to Reinvent Your Master Bathroom

Master Bathroom design

Time flies when you’re having fun helping homeowners design their dream master bath and kitchen. With a new year comes a unique opportunity to remodel and reinvent your master bathroom finally. Bring in modern elements and custom items to get the master bathroom you’ve always wanted.

Modern bathroom elements

Custom bathroom storageModern design is really all about keeping it simple. It’s beyond minimalistic; it’s functional. Nothing is added by accident, and all features work together to create a harmonious and efficient space. That doesn’t mean that it can’t have “wow-factor,” but first and foremost, everything should have a purpose.

Freestanding tub and walk-in shower

With a master bathroom, everything should be a little bit bigger and bolder. You may be putting function first, but that doesn’t mean that you give up on style and glamour. Making room for a walk-in shower and a free-standing tub will give you the essential functions of a bathroom – getting washed up and ready -, but the purpose is elevated with glamorous style.

Keep it Simple

Despite the luxury of a walk-in shower and free-standing tub you still want to keep the design to a minimum. Stick with clean lines and neutral colors and not a lot of accessories that will add clutter.

Modern built-in cabinetry

Smart storage space is crucial in a bathroom where you need to keep so many different elements. Keep the lines and the design simple with slab-panel cabinetry and built-in furniture. Built-in furniture will make the master bath peaceful and harmonious.

Counter space

Designing master bathroomCustom storage and built-in furniture will also free up more counter space. Counter space is just as crucial in your master bath as it is in the kitchen. A modern master bath should feel like a clean, open concept, so don’t add chaos to the simplicity by having too much stuff on the countertop.


Make sure you choose lighting that suits each task performed in the bathroom. You will also need lighting for ambiance. Mixing your lighting brings both function and fashion to your master bath. You can also play with various fixtures and sizes to add a bit of dimension and texture to the atmosphere.

Personal touches

Once you’ve put function and efficiency front and center, it’s time to create a few personal touches that are purely aesthetic. Colorful backsplashes are making their way into modern master bathroom design, adding a little fun, color, and personality.

The Kitchen Showcase has over 40 rooms featuring best-in-brand products in all styles and price-ranges. Come and get inspired and talk to a design expert about reinventing your master bathroom.

Your Bathroom Deserves Better

Bathroom design trends

We spend hours a day in our bathroom, from showering to going to the bathroom to brushing our teeth and getting groomed in front of the mirror. Some will claim that women spend more time in the bathroom than others, but it’s 2018, and judging by the meticulous grooming rituals of many men, we think this is steadily evening itself out. It’s time we gave the bathroom the credit it deserves and did some renovating and remodeling.

Treat Your Bathroom as a Stylish Space

Gone are the days when the bathroom was treated similarly to a utility room. Your bathroom is so much more than a sink and shower and a toilet. It’s the place you get ready for a date. It’s where you hid that day you were really sad. It’s where you and your friends gather to talk about that hottie at the party. It’s also the only room in the house that will allow you to be completely alone. Your bathroom is there in all the important moments of your life – and some of the worst – so why not give this room the credit it deserves?

Make the best use of the space

Your bathroom is a multi-functional room. You need a place to dry after you shower, and you need a place for all of your gadgets and products, hair curlers, and shavers. It’s also one room in the house that needs to be kept clean at all times, so take that into consideration when you talk to your designer.
Making smart use of the space in your bathroom can give it function, but also help you keep it clean. Make sure there aren’t awkward spaces below the cabinets and around the toilet. Customize your cabinetry to fit each function. It will utilize the space much better, as well as make it much easier to clean, move about, and do your thing – whatever that thing may be.

Quartz and granite countertops

Since you spend so much time in your bathroom, you need to use materials that are tough but beautiful, as well as able to stand up to a very moist environment. Quartz or granite countertops are durable, sustainable, and come in a variety of colors that can match any color scheme you have in your bathroom

Task and ambient lighting

Lighting is very important in a bathroom. No one wants to look in the mirror and have a sharp light distort their face, making them look sick or tired. However, you need a brighter bulb when you are applying makeup or plucking your eyebrows (that goes for you, too, guys. Don’t think we hadn’t noticed!) The ceiling light can be soft and pleasant for everyday use, and then you can design additional task lighting for everything else.
