What is the most unusual aspect or outstanding characteristic of this entry?
This master was a design challenge in that they wanted a lot of cabinetry in a small space. Cabinetry not only had to have a function but designed to add to the overall appeal to the warmth of the room. The depth of the linen cabinet was adjust to allow enough space to get to the shower. The upper towers added storage for vanity while adding a design element to frame in mirrors over just the sink are and break up the wall space. Adding the fluted columns to the sink cabinetry and turning the outside corners on a 45 degree angle not only gives the elegant look but, softens the corners. Adding the panels around the tub ties the room together.
