Hello and thank you for your kind words! What you are seeing here in the image is a light cove just below the crown molding, about 4 inches in depth to hold the LED strips. The crown molding is about 7 inches thick and is the same as the crown in other rooms. We hope this helps, and good luck with your project!

Hello and thank you for your question! We always recommend using paint, rather than wallpaper, specifically for high moisture and damp areas. Typically we suggest Benjamin Moore Aura Bath & Spa Waterborne Interior Paint. Wallpaper is difficult to maintain in a smaller, humid room such as a bathroom. Hope this helps, and good luck with your project!

Hello and thank you for your question. This is indeed an tricky situation and one must account for enough steel and concrete to accommodate the weight of a person sitting on the bench. The marble we used is 3/4" thick with a steel support pan underneath to hold the mortar. However, behind the wall, we added a large structural steel beam to account for the overturning force due to added weight on the bench. This is what holds the bench in place and gives the appearance of a clean edge underneath. An engineer should be able to assist you for further development. Good luck with your project!

We live in a 1960 ranch "box", so when we redid the fireplace, we added a bit of architectural interest to the ceiling as well....

Hello and thank you for your question. This is a Donghia Luna Chandelier which comes in three finishes: sepia, graphite and gold dust. The chandelier we selected is the graphite finish. We hope this helps and good luck with your project.

Hello, we're remodelling and the future bathroom will look a lot like this one, with a 42x52 shower, and skylight above it just as illustrated here, and a glass panel between shower and vanity.

We'll be installing a new Velux skylight. I was hoping to install the kind that you can open with a remote control. But I'm concerned with the humidity that will get trapped in the well. Velux have a double layer glass with some isolating gas in between the layers and that should help reduce condensation, but still. I also thought about installing a glass panel flush with the shower ceiling to prevent humidity to travel up the well but then it defeats the purpose of an opening skylight. I'm now thinking of installing a fan sideways in the well inches beneath the glass, in the portion of the well that extends over the roof (a flat roof).

Also, we're thinking about tiling up the whole well to prevent damage to the walls but that won't do no good for the condensation forming on the glass at the top.

I'm curious about any thoughts you all might have. Thanks for sharing.

Hello and great question. We like to discreetly locate the bathroom exhaust fan in the sidewall of the skylight if at all possible. Good luck!
