1. His & Her Bathrooms

Take your master bathroom to the next level. Why just have two sinks? There are many options to consider, such as separate sinks with separate vanities, allowing for your own counter space. Consider a two-headed shower or even two water closets. All of these options give the space and privacy a couple needs. It also allows for two people to get ready at the same time without fighting over the shower, sink or water closet.

2. Jack & Jill Bathrooms

OR Jack and Jack OR Jill and Jill bathrooms can be configured in many ways:

  • One full bathroom situated between two bedrooms
  • Sharing only the toilet and bathtub/shower, setting up a vanity area with a sink in each respective bedroom
  • Sharing a double sink vanity and bathtub/shower with two separate water closets for the toilets
  • Shared large sink areas with multiple faucets for each child

Take into consideration the number of children using each bathroom and the space(Boys vs. girls or one of each).  These differences change the needed design and functionality for the room.

3. Outdoor/ Indoor Bathroom

An outdoor shower or bath for your custom lake home is the perfect addition for a place to rinse off after coming off the lake. A bathroom at a back lake side entrance is also a great way to keep wet towels, suits and feet out of the rest of your home.

4. Beautiful Powder and Guest Rooms

Custom homes require beautiful powder rooms for your guests. This space gives the opportunity to add pieces to make the space unique. Antique dressers for sinks, special sliding doors, custom faucets and more will make your powder room the talk of your social gatherings!
