Remember the Java Kitchen remodel we shared with you back in November? Well, that same client had us simultaneously remodel their master bathroom during that project. Similar to their wish list for their kitchen remodel, which consisted of keeping the overall layout but updating cosmetically, they too liked the layout of their bathroom, but wanted to update the materials to reflect their beachy taste and Key West community they lived in.
In starting this master bathroom remodel, we removed everything in sight. This included the existing vanity area and flooring. We also tore out all the shower tile, backer board and glass enclosure.
Once the demo was cleared and we were working with a clean slate, we installed concrete backer board in the shower, molded the new shower curb and prepped for tile. We laid a unique river pebble on the shower floor and placed large 8×20 subway tiles on the wall with a ‘whisper green’ glass listello for a beachy accent.
With the shower tile complete, we installed two corner shelves, a Moen rain shower head and attached the new frameless shower enclosure.
Following the completion of the shower area, we moved our attention to the vanity area. Previously, our client only had one electrical outlet that was situated directly under the medicine cabinet. Because this was a double sink vanity, they had asked us to re-wire the electrical to add an additional outlet on the opposite end of the vanity, which we did.
Once the electrical re-wiring was taken care of, we prepped the bathroom floor for new tile. Our client chose a wood-look porcelain tile, which we laid in a staggered horizontal pattern. With the flooring set, we then put the new double sink vanity in place.
Per the request of our client who desired additional storage, this vanity cabinet included four medium sized drawers in the center to be shared, as well as the typical door storage on each side. Amerock bronzed nickel knobs were installed on the door and drawer fronts, followed by the installation of the new granite countertop.
With the countertop in place, we installed Danze Antioch center set faucets and hung a new mirror, which extended the full width of the vanity. We also installed a new light fixture and comfort height toilet.
In completing this project, instead of attaching the original swing in door, we hung a brand new sliding barn door. Because the bathroom was tight already, this was a great alternative to give the client more room.
