A wet room adds style and convenience to a modern master bath

While updating a master bath, Case Design/Remodeling’s Ellen Linstead Whitmore and Greg Polen separated the space into two rooms on either side of a central entry—a vanity area with a WC, and the latest trend in bath design: a wet room.

This open, water-proof space encompasses a freestanding Wyndham tub and a Kohler shower with main and hand-held showerheads. Tiles from Daltile protect the floor and walls, one of which sports an accent wall of large-format, bright-blue tiles. “The owners enjoy the wet room concept more than they anticipated,” says Whitmore. “The kids use the tub with no worries about splashing, and the wife can take a bath, then shower off right there.”
