2017 New Home Trends: Master Baths with No Tub
 
We expect to see more master baths without a tub in 2017. Instead, more homes are likely to have showers sized for two to share.
 
Here are photos and floor plans that can get you started with some examples of master bath designs without a tub, for your Raleigh new home.

*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.
