2017 Region 7 Southwest CotY Award Winner, Residential Bath $50,001 to $75,000

This “private retreat” master bathroom has a relatively small footprint with an innovative “wet area” design, which includes a separate soaking tub and a shower behind a single frameless glass enclosure. This meets the married couple’s need for a relaxing sanctuary with separate luxurious spaces and improved access. To lend a natural element and spa-like feel, a combination of tiles with a warm color palette resembling wooden planks and natural stone pebbles was used throughout the “wet area” and floor leading up to it. A deep espresso color on the vanity was used to anchor the room.
