The Background: A family from the UK frequently visited the Bradenton area for their annual vacations. After spending year after year trying to find a place to rent, they finally decided to purchase a permanent vacation home. Their new home had great space and functionality, but the fixtures and overall design style were outdated. Knowing that they wanted to eventually remodel both bathrooms and their kitchen, they made the decision to start with their master bathroom.
The room itself was quite spacious and included most of the wants you’d desire in a master bath; a double sink vanity, walk-in shower and jacuzzi tub. Aside from the obvious outdated designs of the space (tile, cabinets, etc), the family also wanted to remove the over-sized tub since it didn’t get much use and they preferred to add functional storage.
The Solution: After learning more about the wants and needs of our client, we recommended choosing products and colors that would brighten the space and make it feel spa-like. In conjunction with removing the jetted tub as the client requested, we removed all existing items right down to the studs.
Once the room was cleared out and ready for its face lift, we laid glazed porcelain floor tile in a horizontal direction, which made the room feel larger than it already was. Following the floor tile, we installed a white shaker-style double sink vanity with soft-closing drawers. In completing the vanity, we laid a blue recycled glass countertop and secured the new chrome faucets.
With the existing tub no longer there, we used the open space to build out a wall cabinet, which provided the client with additional storage they were seeking.
In the shower, we stacked sterling grey subway tiles on the wall and laid a stone-like tile on the floor. In completing the shower, we installed a Moen rain showerhead and a frameless glass swing door.
As we put the finishing touches on the project, Amerock pulls were installed on both the vanity and wall cabinets and a coat of Sherwin Williams “Rock Candy” was put on the walls.
We are happy to report that the client loved their bathroom transformation so much, that they later hired us to do their guest bathroom and kitchen also (those pictures to come). Let us know your thoughts on this beautiful bathroom remodel, we’d love to hear from you!
