Winner of a Regional 2011 NARI CONTRACTOR OF THE YEAR AWARD FOR RESIDENTIAL BATH $30,000-$60,000
This contemporary master bathroom remodeling project was completed for previous clients that wanted a larger, more functional shower and an updated vanity area.
Here’s what we accomplished for our clients:
- We redesigned the bathroom, removed the large soaking tub and installed a larger shower, replacing the outdated cultured marble with tile flooring and walls.
- We created an after-shower drying area away from the traffic flow to correct a deficiency in the existing layout. We installed a corner bench seat in the shower and another bench in the drying area.
- We used clear glass panels to provide additional light in the shower, as well as a more open feel to the room and visibility of the beautiful, decorative tile-work.
- We placed the shower valve near the entrance so that it could be turned on without spraying the clients with cold water.
- We redesigned his & her vanities to be more uniform and functional:
- We installed a hot water recirculation pump to provide instantaneous hot water at the shower and vanities.
- We repositioned one of the sinks to offer both clients adequate counter space and vanities.
- We added sconce lighting at both vanities to provide better illumination and eliminate shadows that the pre-existing can-lights created.
- The new cabinets had much more storage and the clients loved all the drawers, especially the one that had an outlet incorporated within it for their hairdryer – “how convenient!”
- The added sconce lighting on the wall in front of both vanities gave the clients the desired lighting they needed to better see themselves in the mirrors. Before the remodeling project the clients only had recessed can lighting in the ceiling above that created very aggravating shadowing.
- We retained the existing flooring, closet doors and water closet to keep costs in line with the clients’ budget, while blending old and new elements into a beautifully-integrated master bathroom.
