Better Homes and Gardens: Kitchen and Bath Ideas

We invite you to pick up the April 2010 issue of Better Homes and Gardens: Kitchen and Bath Ideas for a glimpse at the master bathroom of Abby and Fred Himmelein.

The home was built as a Civil War hospital, split into two single-family homes in 1871, and moved to a new lot around the corner in 1911. When the Himmeleins purchased the home, the master bath was “poorly constructed” fashioned from a screened-in back porch.

The Himmeleins tasked Classic Remodeling with designing and constructing a light-filled bath that made efficient use of the space while melding contemporary design sensibilities with the historical structure.

Photographer Anthony-Masterson captured with perfection the beauty of the custom cherry cabinets, marble floors and counters, white tub and vessel sinks, and polished nickel faucets.
