Could it have been the swank master bathroom that made the 17,000 square foot home a slam dunk for Houston Rockets superstar James Harden? Obviously, that was only part of the allure inspiring his purchase of the dwelling, but master baths can be so over-the-top as to transform the value of a home. Consider, for example, Baldi Home Jewels’ $1.1 million rose quartz tub featured in House Beautiful.
We began our journey through Houston’s most swoon-worthy master baths with Scott Frankel, co-president of Frankel Building Group.
“In the last 10 years, we’ve seen more and more people trending toward spa and resort-style master bathrooms with bigger, more luxurious spaces,” he tells PaperCity. “It’s picked up even more in the last few years or so and we’re now seeing people choose really bold colors and come in specifically wanting things like custom rain heads and LCD screens in their showers.”
The Frankel company designed and built the uber contemporary home that attracted Harden. The exceptional master bath features a tongue-and-groove maple barreled ceiling with recessed lighting and contemporary constellation chandelier, porcelain tile floors, quartzite countertops, and white gloss frameless cabinets. The Bain Ultra soaking tub might be the visual centerpiece but the real star of this space is the oversized master shower — perfect for the Rockets’ 6-foot-5 MVP.
Count 14 shower heads, two handheld heads, eight body jets and four overheads.
“Master baths are unique because they are such a private space,” Frankel continues. “It is not a room that a homeowner necessarily shows to everyone, and I think that makes people willing to be a little more bold and create something that is totally tailored to their ideal lifestyle.”
In fact, this house was custom built in 2017 in a dramatic resort style for a family that sold it early this year.
While House Beautiful‘s $1.1 million rose quartz tub by Baldi Home Jewels of Florence is the rare extravagant exception, architects and builders across the city are dipping into a world of contemporary bath design with the free-standing soaking tub among the most popular amenities along with porcelain tiles.
