Incorporate renewable materials. "This project included the renovation of a spa owner's private bathroom at Mamalahoa Hot Tubs and Massage in Kona, Hawaii," says Rosanne Percivalle of 2D3D Design. "The client wanted to have an open feeling that featured natural materials, but didn't want to break the bank with expensive construction and finishes."This room divider "was the first item I found," she says, "and the rest of the bathroom design
evolved around it. At 36 inches wide, the screen provides a separation from the toilet, yet allows light to circulate around and through it."She adds, "I thought using this screen as a divider, as well as a larger similar screen for the dropped ceiling, would be a perfect way to incorporate a renewable material like bamboo. We also saved on the cost of building a wall and ceiling out of Sheetrock by simply using these prefabricated panels."
