This New Master Bathroom was created from extra space not used in the Master Bedroom. We shaved off part of the space opposite the view to create a bigger bathroom and a walk-in closet, The floor in the bathroom is made of large 8" x 48" porcelain tiles that look like Driftwood. The new doors are Fir with a clear coat, matching fir trim. The new sink cabinets match the fir and have molded porcelain tops.

This is a working model, so many things are still being worked on.

 There is a roadway to the right of the house, so  I am trying to screen the decks with full height wall extensions with circular cut outs.

This is a working model of a house that is going to be made of SIP panels (Structural Insulated Panels). There is a covered outdoor fireplace off the living room and it shares a flue. The upper deck is for the Master Bedroom on the second floor. The Lower deck is off of the Living Room..

Kitchen Breaks Out!

 This kitchen was once behind a closed door.

The Kitchen now opens up to the Dining Room and the rest of the Living Room

 Here is the view that it was cut off from before. It really made a huge difference. The kitchen is now united with the rest of the space.

COOL SINKS!

These are some of the nicest sinks I have seen on the market for that special powder room application. The company also does copper kitchen sinks. My cousin is installing on his boat- perfect, right? The shell sink is especially great the way that the water is going to follow the shape into the drain.

Zen Spa Master Tub

Kohler Tub Filler is mounted in the ceiling of this Master Bath with a waterfront view. Kohler SOK Tub is paired with it to create a Zen home SPA experience. Granite Tub surround. Glass tile face.

The tranquility of this Master Bath is achieved with the use of serene soothing colors of Celadon Green and light blue from the recycled glass tiles from Hakatai Glass.

Small Windowless Bathroom Solution

Small Bathroom Solution: Glass Pebble Floor adds a nice texture and contrast to the dark slate border. Even though this bathroom has no windows, the visual interest gives it character. Also the dark slate might be counter-intuitive about what to do in a bathroom with no windows, but it actually gives the small space a sense of security and refuge. The pebbles flowing into the shower give the room a sculptural feeling.

It is easy to start to "ADD" things to one's interior that start to clutter it up. Try deleting everything once in a while to see how it looks. Sometimes, keeping just the basics in a dining room can give it a serene calmness between meals.

Part of the battle with "Clutter" is finding places to put things in an organized way. If you are on a budget, these IKEA white lacquer bookshelves have a simple classic shape.

 An over-hanging sink helps save space in a small bathroom to make it seem bigger. Better then a pedestal sink with no storage below. Limestone counters and wall tile make a continuous envelope of warmthn a basement bathroom.

The battle with clutter is constant, if you want to achieve a soothing environment. By making yourself move things around to clean yourself (no maid can do this), you wind up re-thinking why it was there in the first place. Then sometimes, a new relationship is forged. With a wall to wall mirror, it expands the space. Pull-out Make-up mirror is hard-wired for lighting option. By mounting it on the wall, the clutter factor is eliminated. Plus, it makes putting on some make-up or shaving, better for close-up inspections.
