Once plain and purely functional, the bathroom has taken on a whole new status as a luxurious mini-sanctuary. Ranked as the number one home improvement project in North America, it’s the room you go to for a hug at the end of a long, stressful day.

Tub/shower combinations are being replaced with large, glass enclosed showers with a multitude of water delivery systems. Heated tiled floors, materials such as marble, limestone, granite, slate and glass mosaics are wonderful ways to add depth, sparkle and fun. Vanities can look like free-standing furniture pieces. Enjoy a soak in a hydrotherapy tub while watching flames dance in the torch-style gas fireplace.

A serene oasis behind closed doors can be yours with a helping hand from Schnarr Craftsmen.
