I'd like to present an interesting exercise that I did for refreshing the master bedroom of an house in Tuscany, Italy. If someone ask "re-organize my room and make me happy", you can think it is a nice and hard "blank sheet task"; but if you have some ties to face, especial wishes and everything must fit into the room, things are not easier anyway.
Few special client's requests were: (1) a separate walking dressing area; (2) preferably a bathtub on sight in the room; (3) last but not least, to save and take care of the existent wrought iron queen size bed.
I created three proposals, with different ways for using the spaces around.
- A very simple "A" solution, with separate entrance to bathroom and wordrobe.
- The "B" solution, where I decided to minimize the costs just preserving the existing walls between room and bathroom; creating a big shower behind the entrance, with a large window (acutally, this version was usefull to realize with no doubts, that the bathtube was soon elected the "masterpiece" of the project).
- The "C" solution, with a large open area, destroying part of the wall between room and bathroom; and paying attention to the natural sunlight that comes from the window and the door-window.

Finally, the client approved decision was the "D" version hereafter, quite close to the "A" solution, with just one only door to wardrobe and bathroom ensuite.
Few comments after the final result :
- The client focused the attention on the bathtube in the room and the final choice was for an angular hot tube (not round, not rectangular).
- The client didn't the "C" solution cause the narrow space between the dressing room and the bed (1100 mm). This "lack" was considered a "big problem" too quickly and unfortunately it makes to overrule the possibility to get a beautiful "open space" with fantastic natural sunlight from the two windows.
- Working around at the final project, the client seemed to not take care of the small dimension of the bathroom: as soon placed the angular hot tube, the main target became the greatest possible area dedicated at the dressing room.
