2016 NATIONAL NARI COTY
SOUTHEAST REGIONAL AWARD WINNERA Basic master bathroom for a colonial home in Ashburn, Virginia. This couple wanted to modernize and upscale this master bathroom area without breaking the bank. The separate toilet compartment was too small for them and not necessary for their lifestyle. Larger shower was much more needed; big decked tub was taking a large portion of their floor space. They wished to have longer and larger counter space/vanity area with more storage space and place to hide the hair dryer, electronic toothbrush, shaving machine and basically all counter clutter. The bulkheads had to come down, lighting relocated, and plumbing moved around in order for us to come up with an adequate lay out for this bathroom. We have relocated the commode to make room for a large Roman open style shower without enclosure. This shower was wrapped around with a curved glass walls, stone floor, and rain shower, room for bench and niches for shampoos. Large scale floor tile laid in diagonal shape has emphasized upon the tall cathedral ceiling and wide arch transom of this bathroom. The free standing up with a ledge wall behind it took over the massive decked tub. This also opened the left wall and made room for a long vanity stretch, expanding space for double sinks and tower cabinets to place all their items off the counter and into these cabinets. Combination of vertical glass tile on the curved walls, a linear embossed walls tile on parameter walls and 24” x 24’’ stone floor tile glamorized this bathroom more then you can ever imagine. Combination of light and dark tiles with dark cabinetry was another exemplary display of detail in design. This couple get to enjoy their serenity in comfort of their master bathroom.2016 National NARI CotY Southeast Regional Award Winner, Residential Bath $50,001 to $75,000

2015 NARI CAPITAL COTY
GRAND AWARD WINNERNewlywed purchased their first home in Suburb of Mount Vernon area hoping to build their family in it. A three level split foyer with a large room on the top level was a perfect space for their Master bedroom. There was just a big problem. The closest bathroom was 6 steps down in middle level share by three other bedrooms. For them to better use of the top level and not being jammed in a master bedroom sized as the rest of the other two small bedrooms, was to add a master bath suite to this level. Few steps up form top level there was an attic space 15’x 24’. It’s been unfinished and needed a lot of work to ever be considered as a candidate for future bathroom. Design team was optimistic. The saw a lot of potential in the space and perfect solution for their master suite and lack of closet (storage space)

MERIT AWARD WINNERRetail Price: $ 27,400 The panoramic view from an old master bathroom of a 1986 townhome in the Lake Anne Community in Reston, VA was breathtaking and the owner wanted to have the same experience inside, having an outside scenic view. The old Jacuzzi tub used to take a large floor space seating under the back window. The old fiberglass shower stall was small and simply not adequate. The space was jammed and dysfunctional. Goals: Better traffic flow, larger and much more functional shower stall with dual use, taking maximum advantage of lake view, bringing a Roman style thyme into the new bathroom Design changes: The vanities were on the left wall just across the bathroom entry. Now we have moved all plumbing to right wall just outside of the window. The beautiful curved slab of exotic marble was cut for vanity top and two hand crafted tumbled stone vessel sinks are on top it. The old whirlpool tub was deleted and a small corner tub took its place but it is only occupying half of floor space. The entrance door and closet door were both relocated to allow for new toilet location and new shower stall location. The toilet now hidden by a half privacy wall was moved to right of new vanities and will no longer be an eye sore. The new and improved roman style enlarged shower stall has taken the place old vanities. Double rain shower, double body sprays and built in niches, arch headers and heavy glass enclosure, creative use of mosaic tiles and medallion has made this shower stall jewel of this project. Dark cherry cabinetry complimented cream rustic tumbled marble and oil rubbed bronze fixtures. Outcome: This couple has never been happier to use their master bathroom .They get to have their own Roman style bath experience by taking just a few step from the bedroom. Looking out of this gorgeous bathroom overlooking the lake, it just cannot be expressed with words.2014 NARI CAPITAL COTY, MERIT AWARD WINNER, RESIDENTIAL BATH UNDER $30,000

FINALIST AWARD WINNERA colonial home recently built in the suburb of Leesburg had a run of the mill 10’x11’ master bath just off the seating room of Master suite. The client disliked both the builder grade soaking tub and small shower stuck on the side. The customer was interested on a larger shower, and preferred no tub at all. Lots of storage space, bigger foot print and more interesting angles. The commode was located in an awkward spot and they wanted it away from sight. We suggested and implemented a new master suite entrance , this made more space to be taken away from seating room and get added to bathroom. The commode was relocated in a closed area where shower used to be located. A large walk in shower with frame-less glass and lots of gadgets such as body sprays, rain shower, hand showers and a couple of benches took over the main corner of new bathroom. Large linen cabinetries were surrounding new vanities and double sink area. Padded wall was the new home for embedded medicine cabinetry wrapped in glass tiles and illuminated by hanging lights Floating Dressing cabinets across vanities facilitate the wife’s new makeup area. Smart use of lighting, such as pendants, sconces, and recess lights has made the space brighter than ever. Our designers suggested and implemented light color and large size porcelain tiles and enhanced the look with complimentary glass tiles on accents walls, niches and other areas. Wall hung vanities and granite top with square shapes vessels sinks under wall mount faucets were all part of this contemporary flair2013 NARI Capital CotY, Finalist Award Winner, Residential Bath under $30,000
