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.
