Obstacles and Opportunities
Mary and her two children
Mary’s goal for this project was to bring a modern spa feel to her bathroom within a reasonable budget. The solution: a straight forward “in-place” renovation, replacing the vanity, tub, toilet, and tile – without changing the layout. Keeping everything in its place keeps the cost plumbing the bathroom down.
A modern spin on natural textures
Mary came to New Spaces to create a space that would be comfortable and inviting while adding to the value of her home. She loves the modern look of designs by Frank Lloyd Wright, whose philosophy of “organic architecture” integrates simple lines with natural materials.
The new tonge-and-groove cedar ceiling, with its Swedish-sauna vibe, matches the kitchen ceiling. An all-new vanity looks sophisticated and timeless and the frameless mirror and glass tile mosaic add a mod-deco flare.
Before: Retro bathroom with plenty of pink
Wow! What a transformation. This main level bathroom got a total makeover. New vanity, new shower, new ceiling – this bathroom went from adequate to spectacular with the addition of a few spa-like features.
The alcove shower and deep tub have a luxurious look. Extra-tall shower head and stainless steel faucets accent the stone-look tile stall. These tiles look just like true stone because they are created with the latest printing technology. Integrated into the wall of the shower there’s a set of matching cubbies for toiletries. An elevated transom provides both privacy and light.
