(See Remodeling 101: The Difference Between Carrara, Calacatta, and Statuary Marble.) Above: A large steel awning window steals the spotlight in the steam shower room. Trend-proof basics like white subway tiles and Carrara marble are used in a modern way throughout the bathroom. (See Remodeling 101: Steel Window and Door Fabricators.)
