Twice as much attention was paid to this remodeled bathroom, largely because it is the only one in the house and it doubles as a powder room.

The new bathroom, designed by architect Cindy Black of Hello Kitchen and built by Royce Flournoy of Texas Construction, replaces a very dark, enclosed room with no windows.

Flournoy says in addition to introducing windows, the team replaced the existing solid shower wall with a glass partition so that the natural light could flood the entire room.

"The entire space was gutted, and the layout changed. We tucked the toilet around behind the vanity cabinetry so it less obtrusive before it was right beside the entry to the room, with a half wall."

The design reflects close attention to detail. The walls are lined with handmade ceramic tiles in three shades. These are contrasted by a soft gray marble mosaic tile on the floor and in the niche in the shower area.

To keep the look light and modern, the vanity tops and a long bench seat feature square-edged Crema Delicata marble. Accessories include contemporary Alno stainless steel hooks.
