The most personal space in your home is the bathroom – specifically the master bathroom. When you move into a home, it often doesn’t truly feel like it is “yours” until you’ve added personal touches to the master bath. In this case, the homeowners moved into a space that was completely lacking in personality. The builder had installed run-of-the-mill fixtures and called it a day. Worse, because of his height, the husband didn’t even fit into the fiberglass shower!


This Metrowest Boston-area couple turned to designer Mariette Barsoum to reinvigorate the boring bathroom to make it functional and beautiful. Barsoum gave the couple privacy by taking unused space from a closet and turning it into a toilet room. Next, she made the space larger by replacing the massive, unused tub with a large “deck” with a sleek, modern stand-alone bathtub tucked into the window area.


Before, the couple had to share three vanity drawers as their only storage. Today, there is a new cabinet with a frosted glass door to add modern flair. But it is the his-and-hers shower that is the real show stopper. Multiple shower heads, a built-in granite seat, frameless glass enclosure and a towel warming rack all work together to allow them to stretch out and luxuriate in the shower.
