Modern Bath in old house

This tight spaced bath room was made to feel larger through the use of up and down light in a cove in the mirrored wall hung medicine cabinet and through a frameless glass shower enclosure. Space under the sink serves as towel storage and multi level roll out shelf provides additional storage near the sink.

Mirror Lighting - Nicely detailed: is the mirror lighting ceiling or wall mounted? Nice touch to raise the bottom edge of the bathroom mirror for privacy yet allow the wall to wall mirror visually expand the space...also like the location of the flush panel medicine cabinet to provide extra space and break up the monotony of the mirror surface.

Not sure I understand your question. The lighting at the medicine cabinet is LED strip light tucked up in a pocket in the bottom of the cabinet and one on top of the cabinet.
Hope this helps, Thanks for your kind words

Not sure if you are referring to the grey tile or the red mosaic tile. Either way the gray is from Ann Sacks called Luxor Gray, comes in a variety of sizes. The red mosaic backsplash tile is from WALKER ZANGER-CAG POPPY ARTISAN FIELD ITEM: 1CAGPOPAF.
Thank you for your interest, Michael
