5 Design Tips for Custom Bathrooms
In a custom home design, only the kitchen takes precedence over the master bathroom. This is because like the kitchen, the master bath also needs to be smartly-designed for efficiency, comfort, and functionality.

#1: There Should Be an Easy Connection Between Bed and Bath
When you’re designing a custom home, your master bedroom and bath need to be sized properly and thoughtfully positioned to provide an easy connection between the two. After all, you need to ensure you earmark space enough for not just the master bedroom and bathroom, but your closet space as well.
The bath should also be placed to provide the user the greatest amount of privacy. For bedrooms with doors that open into the bedroom suite, a smart design would be to place the bath on the other side of a walk-through closet. Or, if the entry opens into a dressing room off the suite, then the bath could be placed in a vestibule-like space, thus allowing one person to get up and get prepared while the other sleeps.
#2: Think About Space Vs Function
A bathroom only has so much space, but it needs to be able to perform a range of functions within that space. So, when designing it, consideration needs to be made in terms of space versus function. In other words – where should the shower, bath, toilet, and vanities be position so as to offer the highest level of efficiency, comfort, and design aesthetic?
#3: Keep the Bathroom’s Design In-Line with the Bedroom
When the bathroom isn’t being used, its door will usually remain open. Therefore, you will want to ensure that your bathroom’s design aesthetic matches or at least complements that of your master bedroom. You’ll also want to consider what you see when you’re looking into the bathroom when standing in the bedroom and vice-versa. This vantage point will help you choose the most picturesque look from both angles.
#4: Choose Compatible Fixtures and Materials
Your bathroom’s design should be similar to that of the rest of your house. For instance, you’ll want to incorporate compatible fixtures and materials so the whole house has a unified feel and textured look. This is important to building a home with a unique character, so don’t just choose any random materials for your bath, think about it!
#5: Don’t Make the Bathroom Bigger Than the Bedroom
As much as you want a big master bath, be careful you don’t take too much real estate from your master bedroom to get it. Ideally, you want your bedroom to be the largest room in the design. And, potential future homebuyers will, too.
