Bay window

The Old House Web

These homeowners wanted a bathroom that allowed plenty of natural light. Designers choose a bay window above the tub -- but not just any bay window. This one offers a spectacular view of the San Francisco Bay, while flooding the room with natural light.

A medley of materials, including glass, slate, limestone, cherry wood, black granite, comes together in a clean, minimalist space. The new natural allow lends itself well to dark blue-gray accents.

The original bathroom had been part of a large room that included a closet, dressing room and bathroom. The designers divided the room to create a separate bathroom, opening into a spacious closet and dressing room. A column was replaced with a full wall that limited the width of the new bathroom. The openness and location of the shower allows light to flow throughout the room. A new door between the bath and master bedroom alters the flow of movement and facilitates access between bedroom, bath and closet.


This room earned a second-place award in the master suite/bathroom category of the National Kitchen and Bath Association's 2003 Design Competition.
