Big showers definitely define luxury bathrooms these days. The good news is that many mid-size home designs now include these spa-like spaces, so you don't have to build huge to give your buyers an upscale experience. These ones do it right.

Walk-Through Design

Here's a remarkably flexible floor plan, with room to expand both into the finished basement and upstairs (including an optional in-law apartment). For day-to-day living, the main floor offers a very open layout. The master suite invites owners to kick back in its ultra-luxurious bathroom, where the shower is accessed from two sides and creates a spa-like atmosphere.

No Tub Necessary

Metal roof accents and vertical siding give this home a bit of modern farmhouse flair. Inside, the kitchen shows off a huge island that overlooks the great room and dining area, with a corner fireplace adding ambiance. The master suite ditches the tub and instead features a large shower and walk-in closet. See more images, information, and the floor plans.

Modern Farmhouse Curb Appeal

With 2,297 square feet, this one-story home gives buyers elbow room yet won’t break the bank. Take a look at the master suite, where owners get to luxuriate in the huge walk-in shower, or enjoy the separate tub. The great room flows into the island kitchen and also out to two connected patios. The side-entry garage keeps the exterior focus on the elegant front elevation.

Relaxed One-Story Layout

It's the little details that set this one-story home apart, from the decorative ceiling treatments to the luxurious master bathroom with its walk-in shower. The ultra-spacious great room makes a versatile entertaining center, with sliding doors to the back veranda, a cozy fireplace, and openness to the kitchen's snack bar.
