Glass Shower Stall

The glass shower stall chosen by the owners suited the clean lines and contmeporary look of the bathroom.

The floor tile in this bathroom was a neutral grey colour, which combined with the 8″ x 12″ white tile on the walls gives the bathroom a clean, modern look.

A heated towel rack added a bit of the luxurious to this bathroom reno. And the uncluttered modern look was continued in the pedestal sink with towel bar underneath.
