“This beautifully renovated master bath not only exudes contemporary visual appeal, but also revels in carefully planned green design. The Cambria ‘White Cliff’ countertops, made of a recycled quartz material, define simplicity and pureness. The cabinets have a water base finish and are 100 per cent VOC free. The low-flow showerhead and rain head, along with a low-flush toilet, ensure maximum water efficiency. The walls are embellished with recycled tiles, eliminating the need to be painted. LED lights illuminate the bath effectively. This modern retreat offers elegance and efficiency at its very best.”
