5 Features of a Classic Master Bath

June 22, 2022

For decades, the Trevillians have enjoyed living in the home they built. As the years passed, however, their once brand new home became outdated. That’s why the Trevillians reached out to Hatchett Design Remodel to give their master bath a much-needed make-over and design a classic master bath.

Mrs. Trevillian wanted her master bathroom remodeled in a classic design that will stand the test of time. Our design team was up for the job, and we made sure to include the 5 features that ensure the longevity of a classic master bath.

Feature #1: Subway Tile

White subway tile is and will always be a classic. The clean lines of these rectangular tiles create a classic look on the walls of their walk-in shower. The Trevillians opted for a modern twist on this traditional look by choosing 3×12 tiles and dark grout that accentuates each tile.

Feature #2: Marble-Look Quartz Countertops

Marble is the ultimate classic, but it’s a little high maintenance to have in your bathroom. That’s what makes MSI Q Quartz Calacatta Extra a great alternative. It offers that classic marble look without the fuss. Their previous vanity also had split levels which proved to be limiting, so Mrs. Trevillian requested that we make the countertops all one height to increase her usable counter space in their new classic master bath.

Feature #3: Nickel Features

We chose polished nickel fixtures throughout the bathroom from the pulls, shower doors and light fixtures to the faucets in the shower, tub and sink. In recent years, the trend of mixing metals has emerged, but we opted to use the same finish on all the fixtures for the sake of creating a classic master bath.
The gray tone of the nickel is soft and airy, and it also complements the veining in the marble-look quartz tops. The shiny finish of the polished nickel reflects light and contributes to the overall brightness of the space. The plumbing fixtures are all from the Kohler Bancroft Collection and provide a bit of nostalgia in this classically designed master bath.

Feature #4: Shaker Door Style

The Shaker door style is one of the most classic and versatile door styles you can choose. The simplicity of this style creates clean, crisp lines that echo that of the subway tile. And whether you’re going for a casual or elegant look, the Shaker door style delivers!

Feature #5: Freestanding Tub

Built-in jetted tubs are large and cumbersome. A freestanding soaking tub is a classic alternative. In the Trevillians’ remodel, we were able to open up a significant amount of floor space by replacing the old, clunky tub with this vintage-inspired one. Removing the surrounding step not only freed up space, but it makes their bathroom safer for them to access the shower and tub if they choose to stay in their home after retirement and age in place.

The Trevillians now have a classically beautiful master bathroom that they will enjoy for many, many years to come. When we asked Mrs. Trevillians which feature is her favorite, but she was stumped and said, “everything is my favorite!”
