Master Bathroom: Design Details

It's one of the first rooms you see in the morning, and one of the last rooms you see at night. So why not make it look good?

You've already read our ideas about fixtures.

So we’re gonna shed some light on something new: lighting.

 
The bathroom is a tricky place to light correctly. Task lighting is key, with focuses on the vanity and the tub or shower. Recessed or ceiling-mounted lighting overhead for general illumination works great, just be sure that it’s symmetrical. And to avoid unforgiving, top-down light, use frosted or opaque bulbs to help diffuse light and lessen harsh shadows.
 
Strip lighting is a great way to illuminate entire walls. Place strip lighting under wall-mounted cabinets for a floating look.
 
Great lighting will not only make grooming easier, but can also really expand the whole room. And what if your bathroom is still feeling small even with great lighting?
 
There are some other great ways to make your master bathroom feel so much bigger. Replace traditional doors with sliding doors to make the most of every little space. Also lean toward light colors to really open up the room. And we know we’ve already talked tile, but larger tile sizes will help expand the area.

  • When we rightsized from our home of 43 years to a Bielinski Condo in Bay Pointe, our New Home Consultant answered all of our questions and communicated with us the entire way. We’re fully enjoying our beautiful new home and the condo community.

  • I’ve been so impressed and completely satisfied with the entire Bielinski building experience. From the initial sale and throughout the construction process I have appreciated Bielinski’s professionalism, craftsmanship, and follow-through.

  • We are extremely happy with our new Bielinski Condo. It’s well-built and full of all the features we wanted in our home.
    Deborah and Brian Blackney
  • We chose Bielinski because they are a family-owned business and have been building in the Pewaukee area for a long time. The Clemont floor plan is just perfect for all of our family events and Packer parties.
    Bob and Darla Landgren
  • We couldn’t be happier with our new home! The entire process was fantastic. Everyone was so responsive and quick to help. Bielinski’s knowledge of the industry was invaluable. We recommend Bielinski to anyone looking for their next home.
    Mike and Kristin Smith
  • We had a really good experience with Bielinski from start to finish. Everyone was responsive and reliable. Now we are enjoying life in our new home.
    Peter Holzwart and Therese Gaynor-Holzwart
  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.
