If you’ve been reading my blog or following me on my social media channels, you know that I love to dialogue and interact with my readers/followers.

I love to learn which design topics are relevant to you, and I always want to be sure that the content I produce is not only entertaining by useful.

A few weeks ago, as I was planning my content for the upcoming weeks (I’ve learned that I’m much more likely be consistent if I have a plan of action. I’m not really good at winging it!), I decided to throw a few questions into the mix.

Instead of TELLING you what I think or educating you on the latest, greatest trends, I thought it would be fun to hear from YOU.

The first question I posted was actually a fill in the blank.

A luxury master bath has…

I have to tell you…I was BLOWN away by the responses to the questions.

After reading the responses, I realized that they all basically boiled down to five categories…

Category 1: The Tub

Many of the people who responded ranked a gorgeous bath tub as a must-have on their luxury master bathroom list.

Some wanted a sunken tub…

Cblack L says A sunken bath tub walk up the stairs then step in the oasis!”

Tere C says “A big jacuzzi

Wendy N says “A soaker tub, dual sinks, upscale finishes, heated floors”

Others loved the idea of a clawfoot tub…

Category 2: The Shower

The shower seemed to be a big deal, too…

The master bath features a rain-shower system and body-spray fittings, all by Kohler, and a Dornbracht hand shower.

A few readers were more inclined to opt for design elements that increased the functionality of the master bath…
