I imagine the large ones would look fine, that only covers 42 of your 91. Use the middle for shelving/decor or put a piece of art there.

On a 79" vanity I would do wider mirrors than the 21" . If there is any frame on this size it leaves very little actual mirror to look into. I would look for something larger say 30" wide instead. Proportion wise they will look much better over the vanity not to mention make the room feel larger and reflect light.

This is obviously a high end bathroom and beautifully done ! The mirrors add just the right touch in this setting, but in an ordinary bathroom they would be ridiculous.

And the lighting should dim accordingly!

Porcelain is harder than ceramic and so will be more durable over the long run. That said, a good quality ceramic can also last a long time, but the key is good quality.. Either can get wet. We are doing a lot of porcelain in our projects and not as much ceramic.

Doesn't matter a hill of beans for shower walls. Get what you think looks best, that is a good brand. Don't buy from a seconds type discount place.

I suggest you show some kind of drawing, even if its just basic, showing walls, doors, windows and dimensions of the space. Without those elements its impossible to give advice on layouts.

Unless this is a really high end home, I would pass on the fireplace. You would be better off to put the dollars to a fancy shower meaning dual heads or body sprays or rain head or steam or seat or combination of some of those. That seems to be what our mid to low high end clients are looking for in their bathrooms. Do something unusual with the tile like dimensional etc. See photo

Too bad you can't take the pantry .However you can improve on the design somewhat by getting rid of the neo angle shower in the corner. Instead run it width wise (from the kitchen to the master bedroom wall). You need to allow 36" of width including the curb, but it does get you a larger shower ( I would guess the room is about 5' wide) where you could do 2 shower heads, ( one at each end) and also a shower seat on the kitchen wall if you want one. It should also free up a bit more space around the toilet. Also get rid of the swing door and go to a pocket door that retracts by the side of the vanity. Keep in mind the towel bar has to go on the pantry wall. Wrap all 3 sides of the walls over the vanity in mirror, from backsplash to ceiling to help visually enlarge the space. ( see photo below) Other than that there is no where else to go with it unless you take the pantry space.

My guess would be porcelain tile. There are numerous brands out there now that have "faux" wood tile.

check out Porcelanosa tile. If they don't have this tile, they have many that are very similar.

It is Qatar Nacar by Porcelanosa. We used the same tile behind the tub and shower as well. - Mark

If these ovens are where you plan to do a lot of your prep at the island then yes it should be a concern both from the standpoint of heat generated where you are standing and just the inconvenience of standing over door handles. There is nothing wrong with putting ovens below counter or side by side, but they should not be located in the main work area, but a bit more off side. Do you have any wall area where they could go one above each other as opposed to below counter ? And yes I am a CMKBD ( certified kitchen and bath designer)

Based on the drawing you have very little wall space for a tall double oven. Only place I can see you could put them would be across from the island, at the far left where there are currently wall cabinets. Let me ask you do you really need two ovens ? In this size of a kitchen you are going to sacrifice for those. One option would be to use a free standing range instead of a cooktop. If you have to have the dual ovens, you could do a larger range with two ovens. Then move the refer over to the far left of the sink at the very end. Make sure you have at least 42" of space between the front of the refer and the island. Or another alternative is to separate the ovens and put one at each end of the island. This does get them away from your prep area but keeps them on the island. Not my favorite solution, but it is a solution. Or a third alternative which gets more complicated, is to move the pantry door so that allows you to have a whole bank of cabinets down the empty wall behind the island. You could put the wall ovens there and get tons more storage. Note you will probably have to shrink the width of the island to do this as the overall width of the room remains the same.

Dishwasher looks like it will not be able to be opened when oven door is open...not a great plan there I don't think either.

The deck material is Azek. The material over the top of the beams are acrylic panels that come in sections which are screwed in place.
