Designing for How You Imagine Your Home Will Feel

~ Lake views could only be enjoyed in the shower or tub!
~ Views from the bedroom were obviously not appealing...
~ Lighting was completely inadequate.
~ The bath was a "builder special." Enough said...
Wish List
~ Connect the bath to the views of Lake Sammamish.
~ More room in the shower.
~ A bench "so I can sit and bathe our dog."
~ A comfortable soaking tub.
~ A place to sit.
~ A full-length mirror.

Solution & Gains
~ Landon recommended relocating the tub and installing a new window in place of the current mirror.
~ The door into the bathroom was widened by one foot and centered on their bed, opening up views from the bed to the lake.
~ This created room to rotate the shower 90-degrees, creating room for an ell-shaped composition of his-and-hers vanities.
~ By creating a mirror that slides out into the window, views are opened up for both the shower and the adjacent vanity.
~ A continuous band of teak unifies the bath. Both mirrors were made specifically for this installation.
~ The teak becomes a seat in the shower; a seat on top of storage below between the vanities and at the end of the tub; and a detail between the two sections of the sink. (Having two sections enabled the Landon's shop to make four identical cabinets. (Value engineering.)
~ Upgrading to a glass-paneled doors not only helps the aesthetics of the room, now even the closet feels infused with light.

The actual bath! Note the mirror that slides across the window.
Now, views from the bed through the 42"-wide door invite you to wake up and take a good soak!Storage is one of Landon's strengths, amply demonstrated here. How nice to have all those bottles handy!
