What happens when you have a very narrow bathroom and a homeowner that loves her very large bathtub? A very creative space plan. This master bathroom was actually carved out of some space that previously belonged to the kitchen and that left us a 20.5′ x 7′ space to work with.
In this space we needed to squeeze two sinks, a huge luxury bathtub, a large walk-in shower, a walk-in closet, and of course a toilet. Below is the floor plan that we settled on. We decided to push both the tub and shower into one “wet space” at the window end of the bathroom. The whole area was water-proofed and a frameless glass panel shielded the rest of the bathroom from the water – notice that there is not actually a door just an opening. And for toiletries in the shower we used some floating glass shelves recessed into a niche in the wall. The cabinets are bamboo and the counter top is a remnant piece of marble (good cost savings; find a remnant in a bone yard for a fraction of the cost of a full slab). We tiled the whole bathroom in quartz tile and added some modern plumbing and lighting fixtures, and voila, you have a narrow bathroom with all the amenities.
