We also introduced this tile as a border on the floor, tying the shower area into the greater volume of the bathroom.” Specified in exactly the same shade of green, the horizontal wall tiles alongside again give the feeling of a more generous space. “While this bathroom required the storage of a full vanity, we played down its presence by cantilevering the unit off the wall and fitting wall-mounted faucets,” says Codas. As in the guest bathroom, a glazed shower stall and mirror help give the valuable illusion of spaciousness. “The glass bubbles contribute an adolescent charm and zest, but the look won’t date as the teenager grows up,” Berman says. save | share Search 38925 at Facing page: A cantilevered vanity creates the illusion of greater space in this bathroom.
