Love before and afters. Prime example of jumping on the latest trends and then getting stuck with dated design. Bathrooms and kitchens should be more timeless and less trendy.

@judeirwin About No. 7, if you read the text in "See the rest of this bathroom makeover" you will see that owners placed atmosphere and spirit ahead a more conventional design.

I for one find conventional contemporary design clean and neat but bleah.

My only "but" in this reno is the striated marble tile in the shower and hearth step. I would have chosen tiles with a neutral patern - less distracting. And of course I wouldn't have used those same striated marble tiles in the shower to build that hearth step. Those are two very different things. Why connect them with same tiles? Looks like they wanted to use spare tiles from the shower.

Love the idea of bifold doors, but a glass installer said they have problems binding. Any experience with these? Do they have to have metal across the top and base?
