In contrast, another bathroom is lined with slate strips, and features a freestanding bath, a built-in medicine cabinet with a wenge frame, and four niches which add some depth to the room.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
Experiment with slate Slate is smart, durable and naturally good looking. It’s a staple on floors, but if you’re in the market for a darker alternative to everywhere-white, its charcoal tones also look interesting and upmarket on walls. Slate tiles come in a variety of shapes these days, too, including these slim numbers.
Beam widthsLED lights, both integrated and retrofit, come in varying beam widths. You can think of beam width as the size of the cone of light the fitting produces. Smaller beam widths, such as 10 degrees, are perfect for highlighting a focal point. Around 20-30 degrees work well for downlighting in higher ceilings, and beam widths of 30-50 degrees provide a more diffused light, which is good for lower ceilings and niches.
