Although the house is only 20 years old, the homeowners wanted to update the master bathroom. Existing lavatory cabinets were refinished and reused, enhanced by a new wall cabinet, light valances, and custom mirror frames. The vanity was redesigned for better storage, enhanced by a custom mirror frame and custom medicine cabinet with lighted makeup mirror. The original carpet was replaced by porcelain tile flooring with radiant heating. What makes this bathroom special is the custom tile installation that includes glass tiles inset at regular intervals in the backsplash that flows from the lavatory countertop down to the tub deck and up to the vanity area. The same glass tiles were used to frame the custom shampoo niche. A “waterfall” edge links the engineered countertops and tub decks.
