In a guest bathroom, designer Alisa Hoffman took a creative approach to the design of the vanity. “By ‘floating’ the vanity cabinet we were able to open the space and light it from below which gives the illusion of expanding the room as the floor tile continues underneath the vanity, all the way to the wall,” says Hoffman. She designed the cabinetry with open storage for extra towels, baskets for toilet tissue and a space to sit down. “It’s reminiscent of being in a spa, an experience from which everyone leaves refreshed,” she says.
