A glass shower makes this space seem larger.
Toronto designer Barbara Purdy gutted the entire bathroom — except the original '50s-style hanging globe lights — to achieve the fresh, bright look she wanted in her cottage. An open-storage washstand was custom built to hold an affordable Ikea sink, keeping the space open and airy. White walls and faux marble porcelain shower tiles also brighten the once-dark room. Teak slats and a rain showerhead lend a high-end look.
