CWB Architects custom designed this medicine cabinet to be recessed in a custom-built 1½-inch painted wood frame that projects out from the wall. CWB’s Rachael Stollar says the company often customizes medicine cabinets for projects. This system features a fixed mirror flanked by two Robern M series frameless cabinets.
Now a frameless glass enclosure keeps the views of the quartzite wall open and makes the room feel larger. The shower entry is open and curbless — the shower floor slopes down to a linear drain beneath the shower heads. A lot of Houzz users are concerned about draftiness and splashing with open shower entries. In this case, because the homeowners have a heated floor that they keep at 74 degrees year-round and a bathroom exhaust fan with a built-in heater, they say they don’t have a problem with draftiness or chilliness when using the shower. They also note that the way the rain shower head directs the water prevents it from splashing outside of the stall. And they don’t have to get wet turning on the shower — the controls are built into the half column on the right.
Transitional style. “This toilet is great when it comes to being sanitary and eco-friendly — both of which are prized qualities when it comes to purchasing a toilet,” says bathroom designer Michelle Fee about American Standard’s H2Option, pictured. “The dual flush is nothing new to the industry, but the functionality of this system uses less water, eliminates more bulk and does it all quietly.” She’s also a fan of the finish. “The EverClean surfaces protect against mold, mildew, algae and fungus that could cause deterioration or staining, making it easier to clean and maintain.”
