There is a small bathroom near the bedrooms. With a light finish, the use of glass and mirror surfaces, it was possible to visually expand the space of the room for water procedures. Combination of finish using imitating a stone ceramic tiles and waterproof plaster creates an interesting look of the bathroom.
Marble countertops and a small shelf for accessories to fit the color of the tiles perfectly completes the image of a bathroom.
