Our clients are ordering both. GlassCrafters Inc. offers a selection of custom shower enclosures that are designed for both small and large budgets.
Q2) What features are they asking to be included? What items would you want in your dream bathroom?

We are recommending LED linear fixtures and sconces for daily grooming tasks. We suggest fixtures that provide appropriate light output (Lumens), color temperature for makeup applications (2700-3000 Kelvin), plus ideal color rendering index (CRI) for enhanced complexions.
b) Cabinetry looks and features?
Recessed or surface mounted, mirrored medicine cabinets for the vanity with built-in features such as integrated lighting, electrical outlets and defogger.
For bulk storage in the bath and for dressing, consider full-length cabinets offering a variety of depths, mirrored door or colored glass door to harmonize with other elements in the bath space.
