When you're building in an infill environment, neighbors inevitably become part of the design equation. To avoid putting on a show for the adjacent house, this handsome bath features an oversized picture window, the bottom half of which is obscured glass. “This feature lets light in and maintains clean lines without requiring any sort of window covering,” explains designer Debra Toney. And clean lines are what this bathroom is all about.

Ah, but where to mount the vanity mirrors? Two custom suspended numbers did the trick, although they did require extra 2x10 blocking between the ceiling joists, plus a little extra collaboration with the electrician, mirror cutter, and stainless steel fabricator.
