Giving a master bath a spalike feel

When interior designer Sherry Schmidt decided that the master bathroom in the couple's Huntington home needed a face-lift, she looked closely at what could be saved and what needed to be scrapped. "The bathroom had good bones, so we felt a total renovation wasn't required," says Schmidt, who acted as general contractor when she and her psychologist husband, Sheldon, 66, built their Huntington home nearly 20 years ago. "We wanted a cleaner, spalike feel with more counter space and more storage," says Schmidt, 64. The makeover includes a vanity with drawers and space for extra towels and a second makeup area with a large mirror, a marble ledge and storage. Total: About $2,600. --Sylvia King-Cohen
