His quality control management of the build team also kept the project on track. The goal was to use light colors to create visual space, adding medium-dark wood planks to the accent walls to add visual height. Using a light flooring color and white ceiling was also an intentional choice. “I tiled that with plank floor to ceiling to give height to the room,” he says. The medicine cabinets use flattering lights, and have integrated digital clocks and a defogger. Humidistat-driven fans transport the steam out of the home to prevent trapped moisture, a touch screen controls the radiant heated floor, and the owners can manage all of the lighting by a central smart system.
“I am a big fan of adding lots of opportunity for light,” Holgerson says. “The granite really bounced a lot of light in there, as well as the large medicine cabinets. So, the space really isn’t that much bigger than it was to begin with, but we really paid attention to every last inch to make sure everything fit and functioned well.”
