This modern master bathroom is surprisingly kid-friendly


Hi, I’m Cynthia Soda from Soda Pop Design Inc. and we are currently sitting in my master bathroom. So the reason that we
started this reno is because we actually had mold in the shower. And
because I’m the type of person that likes to do things once and right, we
decided to just push the proverbial TNT button and do the whole thing the right
way. My must-haves for this bathroom were definitely heated floors, I really wanted
a beautiful, big soaker tub to hold all my kids, and I definitely wanted a zero
threshold going into my shower. So I wanted a very European, modern aesthetic. I chose this particular tub from Victoria + Albert, it’s called the Eldon.
It’s a back-to-wall installation, which means that it’s not floating away from
the back wall, so when my kids are in here splashing around it doesn’t get
water behind the tub. So all the mess is just in front of it! And being made out
of volcanic limestone, it actually really retains the heat really well so
the tub stays warmer longer. I designed the shower to be big enough for us to
kind of shower off all our kids all at once. Again, I didn’t want to have any
threshold there and I chose to go with an industrial line design which was
available through Doors and More, and we actually ended up coming up with kind of
where we wanted to place the black detail line. So that just made it a
little bit more interesting instead of being a clear glass shower. It was also
really important for me to have a sliding glass door because I didn’t want
my kids especially, since they use the space a lot to just swing the door open
and smash it into anything. So we custom designed the vanity for both my husband
and I to have two sinks and plenty of storage. We used all touch latch drawers
because I really wanted that minimalist aesthetic with no handles. And then I kinda wanted to create some added visual textures, so we have some cool
reveal lines that we just detailed into the actual millwork in order to just
keep it looking a little bit more interesting. And then the countertop
material was a Caesarstone in a honed finish, so it gives it kind of a really
warm aesthetic instead of being super polished. Aside from my shower and my tub, my favorite elements in here are the textured tile wall that we did behind
the vanity. I really, really like my bubble fixture above my bathtub. And we
actually also installed a vent that has an integrated Bluetooth speaker, so when
I turn the vent on and I’m sitting in showering or bathing, I can just kind of
listen to music instead of the vent running. So even though the reason that
we started this entire renovation was because of mold in our shower, we’re
left with a pretty awesome space that when we go away on vacation, we can’t
wait to come back to!
