Make your storage work for you.
Like most master ensuites, this room needed great storage, but good lighting was just as important for the busymorning prep. To get both, designer Andrea Rodman added lighting boxes to the triple medicine cabinet configuration in this Vancouver bathroom, behind the mirrors above the vanity sinks. “We figured out that if we built the medicine cabinets out, we could do integrated lighting,” she explains. Boxes at either end of the cabinets have doors with cut- outs of light- diffusing glass—softening the light for a more flattering glow—which also open easily to make changing the fluorescent tubes inside a snap.
