Two Sinks are Better than One
A beautiful custom home, designed for a bachelor, was unable to accommodate the needs of a married couple who not only lived and parented together but also worked together. To maintain matrimonial harmony, it was time to transform the master bathroom into a room built for two with two sinks being at the top of the needs list (the original sink and dinky mirror were located between the two exterior windows). Finishes throughout were also ready for an update.
The bathroom was gutted which provided an opportunity to open up the cave like shower and install the much-desired dual sinks and bidet toilet. The challenge was how to place mirrors and lighting for each sink which were centered on the exterior windows. The exterior wall framing, and the window prohibited the placement of both a light fixture and a mirror above the sink(s). To remedy this issue, the casing on either side of the window was removed and wiring for lights was installed. The casing was bored to allow the wiring to run through the casing to the surface mounted Twiggy LED lights (by Edge Lighting) which are hinged to allow the user to move the lights in to fully illuminate the face. The mirrors, in frames to match the cabinetry, where then mounted on a barn door track installed above the window frame. The mirrors not only clear the Twiggy lights but can be moved to the left of their original location to allow the natural light from the windows to pour through. To round out the new design, more and better organized storage and a rear grooming mirror were incorporated in this small, narrow bathroom.
Mornings have definitely improved since the remodel of the master bath!
