Cutting Edge: Large Bath

A wet room helps reshape a luxurious bath

In the renovation of a master bath, Meghan Browne reworked a series of small rooms into a “sophisticated retreat that was also warm and approachable.” She maximized space by creating a wet room where the open shower left plenty of room for a large, therapeutic tub. “The wet room originally became popular in Japan,” Browne explains. “The concept really opens up possibilities when designing a bathroom.”

The wet room’s back wall features a niche with a stone-and-brass-tile mosaic by New Ravenna, back-lit to create ambient light during long soaks in the BainUltra tub.

A glass door connects the wet room to the main bathroom, lined with rift white-oak cabinets. “Antiqued-brass sconces by Circa Lighting pick up the bronze tile,” says Browne, “which embodies the balance of sophistication and relaxation we were after.”
