What was the single largest issue you wanted to address?

The clipped ceilings can result in squatty vanities, so to balance the design I installed custom cabinet towers and adjusted the counter heights to allow for more mirror space.

What ideas changed during the design process?

We thought we were going to add a built-in cabinet under the window, but we decided to do a furniture piece, instead. This added a dash of contemporary style to an otherwise traditional space.

What’s one design tip you’d offer our readers?

Make sure each trade subcontractor understands your exact design. This takes being on-site more often, but it's worth it.

What were your favorite pieces from this design?

The cabinets, the lighting, the tiles and that amazing niche.
