    This 300-square-foot master bathroom was designed by Marc Christian Fine Cabinetry and Interior Visions in an updated traditional style to give the homeowners an elegant space. Soft-white painted custom beaded inset vanities; a makeup vanity and dresser maximize the storage and functionality of the bath. The vanities are accented with polished nickel exposed finial hinges and hardware as well as decorative integrated feet and paneled ends. His-and-her vanities have undermount rectangular sinks and polished nickel plumbing fixtures.


    This elegant master bath designed by Alspaugh Kitchen and Bath uses painted molding mounted on the wall to emulate wall paneling. Combined with matching painted beaded inset cabinetry, the entire bathroom has a built-in appearance. The homeowners desired a classic white-and-marble look, but lower maintenance. To achieve the look, a combination of marble-sequel porcelain tiles, sintered stone countertops and real marble tiles were selected. With a strict white color scheme, attention to detail was essential.


    A leaking toilet from a second-floor bathroom provided the perfect opportunity for a master bath redesign led by Alspaugh Kitchen and Bath. The dramatic Calacatta Michelangelo marble became the star of the show. The marble lines the shower walls and entry and tops the vanity cabinets setting the soft-gray color palette. A marble apron extends in front of both Kohler sinks and mirrors the profile of the backsplash shelf. The shower features two sets of Grohe showerheads and hand-held showers making it a luxurious space for two.


    R.G. Apel Development designed a guest bath that combines both form and function. You can enter the bath through the custom three-lighted door from either the bedroom or the hallway. The most striking feature in the bath is the specifically designed polished stainless steel trim that is used throughout the space. The metal accents the shower entry and is the material used for the apron molding around the vanity. The material ties in the modern stainless steel vessel sink, which sits atop a l2-inch thick glass top custom made in Canada.
