No tub for the bath? [Master bath floor plans with no tub]

As we predicted (see the original post here), we have continued to see more requests for new home floor plans with no tub in the master bathroom. Instead, buyers are opting for additional vanity space and/or a larger walk in shower for two.

Below are photos and floor plans with some examples of master bath designs without a tub – for your central North Carolina new home.

No Tub in the Master Bath – Layout #1

Looking for a master bathroom with an oversized shower and no tub?   In this version of the Bennett (a Raleigh new home), the master bathroom features a centerpiece shower with separate his and her vanities on each side.

Inside, there are two shower heads (one attached and one hand-held). See the master bathroom layout with no tub in this floor plan, below. Eliminating a tub makes more room for this double-sized walk in closet, too.

Kicking out the tub makes space for a specialty storage cabinet, just around the corner from the oversized, walk in shower. See a photo tour of this home, the Elk Point, here.

The efficient floor plan layout includes a small eat-in kitchen that opens to the two story vaulted great room. The upstairs makes room for two bedrooms and a balcony. Downstairs, there is a separate dining room and “flex” room that can be used as a home office. The master bathroom includes a large walk-in shower, no tub, and ample storage space with built in cabinets.

Design tip: Consider a pocket door in smaller spaces, or where there are multiple doors in a close space. Just keep in mind that pocket doors can require more homeowner maintenance.  It’s common for Jack and Jill bathroom designs to incorporate one or more pocket doors to keep space more open and usable.
