Custom Storage Tower

A custom-designed, floor-to-ceiling storage tower offers a mix of open and closed storage space in this contemporary bathroom. The bottom shelves were left open for easy access to towels, while the top shelves were fitted with doors for concealing toiletries. The compact, wall-mounted floating vanity saves space but still offers extra storage and style.

Sleek Meets Glamorous

A smooth, horizontal-grain finish lends a sleek look to the floating vanity in this powder room. The simple style of the vanity allows the more glamorous elements of the room – like the translucent glass countertop and silver leaf tile backsplash – to take center stage.

Dramatic Design

A translucent glass countertop finished with LED lights fills this glamorous powder room with soft luminescence. A sleek floating vanity, white vessel sink and polished chrome fixtures balance this dramatic design element. 

Space-Saving Solution

A floating vanity creates the illusion of more space in this contemporary bathroom. Honed limestone floors and countertops pair beautifully with a frosted glass tile backsplash.

Custom Vanity

In this powder room, a custom-designed vanity features stylish open storage for rolled towels, plus a closed area to conceal plumbing. The curved design of the vanity is repeated in the tile border along the wall.
