The Master Bathroom "THE CARWASH" While you don't always have time for a bath, a shower's a must. If the footprint for your bathroom does not allow the space for a tub, or even if it does, there's no reason why the shower can't be every bit as luxurious as the tub. Michael Gray from Carpenter & MacNeille says that he sees people being, "more about showers these days. Lots of marble, tile, and mosaics." Ideally, the master shower is big enough to hold two people, though it usually only holds one. "Super big showers are popular, but when you go much bigger than five feet it gets cold. And the more space, the more to clean," says Meyer. Typically anywhere from three and a half to four feet wide by five feet long, the shower can be enclosed by glass or half glass and is, according to Gleysteen, "a ton of fun."

For the authentic feel of raindrops falling on your head, consider the increasingly popular recessed rain shower head. Installed into the ceiling, it's like a personal summer storm at the turn of a knob. Meanwhile, the jets spray and the handheld nozzle rinses soap down the drain. Fans of larger shower spaces may consider adding a steam element to the room and building in a bench or two. Aesthetically pleasing, benches are also handy when shaving legs.
