What Houzz contributors are saying:
I love how this vanity has higher legs and extra foot room. Traditional bathroom and kitchen cabinets often have a smaller kick space (the little recess below the bottom drawers) with little to no room for your toes. If you like to get up close to your vanity and lean toward the mirror when getting ready, a freestanding vanity with extra leg height is a great idea. Tip: If you're installing radiant floor heating, you'll want it to go all the way under your vanity with a design like this. That way your feet will still stay warm when you're up close to the mirror. We prefer cable heating systems rather than heating maps for this very reason; they allow for greater heat placement control.
The guest bath upstairs has a cooling palette of blue and white, breaking from the kelly green motif downstairs. Turner enjoyed the way this family approached their home's redesign. "They're a real family with a real budget, so they went about things piecemeal. They could only afford to redo the bottom floor and a bit of the second floor — and only now are they ready to work on the master bedroom, bath and an additional bedroom," says Turner.
