Glass mosaic tile "was used throughout the open air shower and the tub area", Mackie notes. "The MTI whirlpool tub has jetted features and remote controls, while the shower has a Grohe fixture with an adjustable arm. There's also a heated towel bar". Go with stone. "I rarely use anything but freestanding tubs. I love them!" says Cheryl Kees Clendenon of In Detail Interiors. "This one is from Turkey and is solid marble. The owners are from Louisiana and like darker colors and rich texture. We wanted to showcase the space, and placing the tub in front of these windows was perfect – it really became the centerpiece".
Get the balance right. "This is a steam shower, which is why the ceiling is sloped and tiled, the glass goes all the way up to the ceiling and there's a hinged panel that can be cranked open", says Ines Hanl. "The shower has white Thassos marble on the walls and a black marble mosaic on the floor, both of which are inspired by the color scheme in the rest of the bathroom– black and white marble mosaic for the floor and black‐stained cherry cabinetry". Contrast modern and rustic. "This bathroom was part of a renovation in what was originally an old stone gatehouse", says Kelly Solon of Murdock Solon Architects. "We were trying to insert a clean, modern design into a very rustic and visually heavy environment. The frameless enclosure provide a light and airy feel, as well as a contrast to the other materials in the space".
Urinals. Residential urinals can make your lavatory fun for boys while conserving water. Some manufacturers, including Kohler, offer waterless urinals for even greater water savings.
