2011 NARI Capital CotY Merit Award Winner
This couple lived in their colonial home of Burke, VA for over 20 years. Now that kids were grown and gone, it was time for them to pay more attention to their home. First was the dragged looking master bath. Small with outside dressing area, small closet adjacent to it. Tight and dysfunctional is how the client described it.
We have designed a new master bathroom which suggested a total overhaul and expansion of space that would took over the entire space.
Client always dreamt of having a whirlpool, a large steam shower to enjoy after workout, and private toilet area.
The challenges were as followed:
Tight and narrow hallway and old bath
Shallow floor joist that made running ground plumbing nearly impossible
None of the elements was working in their original location or close by area
Dark and drag looking fixtures
Under size electrical and plumbing
We have planned to redesign and bring this bathroom to 21st century era;
Clients wanted a contemporary flair of products and look
We have decided to give them a combination of an exotic granite and porcelain tile all over to a high level of modern theme
All interior walls of closet, dressing and hall were taken done and this shell was converted to one large space of 11’x16’ bathroom.
Then we created a 3’x 5’ area in old closet and made that the private toilet area through moving ground plumbing in a very creative manner
Then we brought in the large and highly sophisticated steam shower using of granite benches and large tiles, heavy glass enclosure, modern style chrome temperature control faucets and rain shower embedded into the walls
A modern style body sprays with embedded heads into tile work made this shower a state of art piece
Then it comes the bubble, jetted whirlpool with granite surrounds
Then we have brought in plumbing into far walls for a modern looking double vanity cabinetry with matching exotic granite, couple of vessel sink and matching faucets
We have framed up the wall in order to work in the two recessed custom built medicine cabinets over the sinks
The vanity cabinets offered a lot more storage than they have anticipated
Airy and light with lots of space was the new title for this modern style master bathroom.
Clients were thrilled with the outcome and never imagined that their old and dark looking small bath could ever be transformed into such beautiful bath.
