Progress photos - bathrooms and laundry room

All of the countertops have been installed and they look great!  You might remember my trip to the slab yard where I found a great remnant of Pental's 3cm Alpine quartz.  Here it is installed in the powder room:

 In order to stay on budget with our hard surfaces, we decided to use laminate in the mud room and the laundry room.  Here's a picture of Formica's Sand Crystal Laminate countertop in horrible lighting:

 The guest bath is one of my favorite rooms in the house.  We used a knotty alder cabinet with a burnished walnut stain.  The counters are Pental's Seashell Polished and the backsplash is a row of two 3x6 inch Pental subway tile.  Paint color is Stratton Blue by Benjamin Moore.  Sinks are undermounted, by Kohler:

 The laundry room is another place where we were able to save some money.  We ended up installing melamine cabinets and WilsonArt Calcutta Marble laminate counters.

 Our master bathroom continues to come together with the marble slab installed on the dual vanity, tub and shower bench.

 One of the things that we've focused on in designing our house is maximizing the potential for storage.  We asked our cabinet maker to build a hutch that would sit on top of the dual vanity.  We figured this would be an ideal place to store things that usually end up sitting out on the countertops.  Eventually, the hutch will be trimmed out with a piece of crown molding on the top.
