When designing a bathroom for a busy family of five, Wanda Ely used a wide trough-style sink that lets all three children brush their teeth at once and added clever storage solutions to store everyone’s essentials. “The clients wanted a white bathroom with Scandinavian, spa-like feel with open shelving,” says Ely. “The floating, rustic maple shelves had holes routed out of them to fit various glass and metal inserts that help hold and organize their belongings. Stainless steel inserts hold toothbrushes, glass test tubes hold flowers, glass cups hold miscellaneous items like hair elastics and cotton balls.”
The luxurious master bathroom in this Lake Tahoe-area ski getaway features a free-standing tub surrounded by windows looking out to forest views. Facing vanities are sleek and modern, with broad mirrors, trough-like basin sinks and downlights below the floating vanity cabinets.
