Outside In

The simple master bath in this 1980s home offered good space and beautiful surroundings but little aesthetic appeal—until natural materials and thoughtful construction upped good looks. The metal vessel sink and etched glass counter appear to hover below an extra-large mirror as cabinets float in balance beneath. Mesh metal accents set in the warm maple wood echo the sleek sink.

A generous tub—enveloped in glacier-blue glass tile—now occupies the corner. Mounting 12-inch-square tiles on a solid foundation of custom-fabricated stone slabs ensure durability and a watertight seal.

A glistening glass basin adds glow and flow to the dressing room area, while heated slate floors are as comfortable as they are beautiful.

A wooded lot and no neighbors mean these homeowners can enjoy a view from any room, including the spacious two-person shower. An expansive skylight continues the natural feels, bathing the frameless shower in ambient light.
