Three-dimensional wall tile by WOW adds interest and texture to this bath designed by Paul Bentham.

Best in Show Soothing Retreat

Large Bath—First Place

Best in Show Soothing Retreat Designing a luxurious, modern master bath for Bethesda clients who wanted unique materials and a spa-like aesthetic, Paul Bentham first selected a three-dimensional porcelain wall tile by WOW. Paired with Calacatta marble floors, the undulating tiles provide a contrast to solid, dark-stained wenge surfaces that include vanity countertops, the top of a bench in the center of the room and the frame of a large mirror on one wall. The natural wood has been sealed against water damage.

Bentham replaced a seldom-used tub with a shower area featuring a window framed by water-resistant white quartz that looks like wood. Tiled in Certosa glazed porcelain, the shower zone boasts rain-head, fixed and hand-held showerheads, a storage niche and a tiled bench.

The vanity and central bench are set on tall, mirrored toe kicks so that they appear to float above the floor. Vessel sinks, wall-mounted faucets, and oversized medicine cabinets complete the space.
