Clean and Contemporary

A freestanding chromatherapy air tub with a ceiling-mounted tub filler is the focal point of this spa-like bathroom. Shoji-style pocket doors with white laminated glass allow natural light to enter the room, while heavily customized vanities are designed to keep clutter off the countertops.

Freestanding Focal Point
