@ jlreber- don't wait for the lottery to use venetian plaster. There's a bit of a learning curve in applying it, but it's a material that behaves more like stone than paint in how it dances with ambient light.

@hunter_hansen- some of the ceiling finishes using wood and venetian plaster (see above) can definitely be used as affordable option on 8 foot ceilings as long as you are willing to do the labor as they are labor intensive. One distinct advantage to using wood planks is that it is much easier and safer to install with one or two persons than a sheet of drywall especially if using a ladder.

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!

Hello and thank you for your question! At the bottom of the glass, which meets the curb, there is a routed groove in the tile which is then filled with flexible clear silicon. Then at the top, where the glass meets the ceiling, there is a recessed stainless steel u-channel receiver to hold the glass panel in place. This way, the glass looks frameless and very clean. Hope this helps and good luck with your project!

Hello and great observation! Yes, this is a concealed linen closet door which also functions as a mirror. This not only hides a door, but it mimics the picture molding on the wall across the hall and brings added daylight into the space.

Hello and thank you for your question. We used the same color grout on the stone tile and the glass tile to remain consistent. Hope this helps and good luck with your project!

Hello and thank you for your question. The mirror shown in the image measures 4'-0" x 2'-0". Perhaps a 2:1 ratio will work for your larger mirror. However, it is always best to see how the scale of something this size visually compares to other objects in the room. If you are able, try using painter's tape to mask off a section on the wall and see how it compares to your desired size. We hope this helps and good luck with your project!

Hello and thank you for your question. The base trim turns around the corner and into the jamb. The top of the base projects 3/4" from the wall and the bottom of the base projects 1-1/2" from the wall. Yes there is a shadow line in the image which makes it appear as though there is another piece of trim, but we assure you that this is one continuous piece! Good luck with your project.

Hello and thank you for your question. We designed a light cove that extends about 4" above the ceiling in the image, and is about 3" deep. Essentially the light cove allows for indirect lighting to be directed upward, which then washes the wall evenly with light. The trick to designing light coves is to be sure to allow enough room such that your electrician can install the LED strip. We hope this helps and good luck with your project!

Thank you for your interest in our project. The flooring is a 4" wide board, rift and quartered white oak. These floors were stained with a custom stain blend that is 50% ebony with 50% chocolate with a polyurethane top coat for a long lasting and durable floor. Hope this helps and good luck with your project!

The painting reflected in the mirror is by the artist Ben Potter. It is made of recycled blue grocery bags and Elmer's glue! Good luck with your project.
