Large white tile shower with bench, steam shower, and window for natural light
This Mill Valley residence under the redwoods was conceived and designed for a young and growing family. Though technically a remodel, the project was in essence new construction from the ground up, and its clean, traditional detailing and lay-out by Chambers & Chambers offered great opportunities for our talented carpenters to show their stuff. This home features the efficiency and comfort of hydronic floor heating throughout, solid-paneled walls and ceilings, open spaces and cozy reading nooks, expansive bi-folding doors for indoor/ outdoor living, and an attention to detail and durability that is a hallmark of how we build.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Install a shower benchA safe place to sit in the shower is vital for an age-proof bathroom design. Decreasing the amount of time you stand in the shower not only eases the strain on your body, it also reduces the chances of slipping and falling. Your bench can be a built-in and tiled or free-standing. You can even use waterproof seat cushions so you’re not sitting on a hard surface. Find a bench that is large enough for comfortably sitting and bathing.How to put a bench sea into your shower
6. Add texture to white to avoid that sterile look There isn’t a bathroom or kitchen that wouldn’t look cleaner with white as the colour for walls, trim, benchtops, cabinets or fixtures. Culturally we associate white with cleanliness. White’s crisp look is important to employ when you are readying a house for sale and want to make the best impression.Whitewashing a room can have some drawbacks, however. By reducing the elements of the bathroom’s design to a single colour, you can make this utilitarian space with hard surfaces appear sterile, even boring. Often just the simple addition of a textured wall surface such as tongue-and-groove panelling can bring enough interest to the reduced palette to save the day.
