Accessible Shower

Lighting is an important element of shower design, both for style and safety. Recessed light fixtures provide ample illumination in this accessible, curb-less shower, which also features a fold-down seat and attractive grab bars.

LED Lighting

This contemporary bathroom is entirely illuminated by LED lighting, including in the spacious shower. Two recessed light fixtures highlight the shower’s glass tile wall, designed to mimic a waterfall.

Well-Lit Throughout

The designer of this bathroom was tasked with creating a space with plenty of light. She delivered with multiple recessed light fixtures, sconces, toe kick lights and a large window in the tub and shower area. At the vanity, a wall-hung faucet maximizes counter space, while a frosted glass medicine cabinet increases storage space.
