Gold and Janus
Revolution Design and Build, Wayzata, Minn.
This bathroom remodel was inspired by a beach vacation. A burlwood vanity and tree anchor one side of the bathroom, also hiding incoming water lines. A striated brown bench resembles driftwood and a glass tile wave provides cubby shelves. The tile setter cut slivers out of 1- by 1-inch glass tiles to complete the wave look and the cabinetmaker was challenged to build a continuous-grain curved door and two curved drawer fronts from one piece of burlwood veneer.

Custom Design Build, Ann Arbor, Mich.
This multi-use bathroom features a shared shower enclave that can be accessed from the powder room or the guest suite. The powder room shower door can be closed to bar access when entertaining while still allowing the homeowners to access it. The guest suite features a luxury tub room and aging in place elements. The design team also modified the hallway to create a lighter space and better transition from public to private areas.

Jane Page Design Group, Houston
This bathroom challenged the designer to make a small, crowded master bathroom appear larger without any adding any square footage. Frameless glass is used to enlarge the shower and bathtub and allow light through. Full-height and -width mirrors, leaded glass window, dimmable cove and decorative lights and light-colored countertops and flooring also contribute to the space.
