Hello friends! We're always complaining about how we don't blog enough- I'm embarrassed to say how many times we've blogged this WHOLE YEAR, I'll let you figure it out. (Hint: our Christmas gift guide from last year is not too far down there.) It's both good and bad, because blogging takes a backseat to actual design work which pays the billz BUT counterpoint, it's fun and we get to share on a more personal level with our followers. All that to say, it's a good resolution to have for next year.
ANYWAYS, BATHROOMS. We've been on a bathroom roll lately- I think we have 9 under our belt after this year. ! So we know ALL the tile. These two bathrooms were so fun to work on because they were gut projects and also each had different goals and purposes. (Also amazing, trusting clients always make a project fun!) We broke this post into two because it was getting too long, so come back tomorrow for part 2 featuring the kids bath! This post we're discussing the master bath which desperately needed a gut reno with lots of storage and a new tub. Check out that ridiculous tub! What were the 80s thinking?!?!
This space was full of design challenges. There was a large and awkward amount of space in the toilet area, a super tall vaulted ceiling in just half the room, lack of wall space for a long vanity, a load-bearing dividing wall, and generally just lots of nooks and crannies. Our goals were to introduce built-in storage which kept the toilet area from feeling too big and in the center of the room, install a half wall of tile to keep the eye down and make the space more cohesive, move some doors around to make space for a long vanity, bring the load bearing wall back a tad and install a glass shower to open up the room. And it all came together with just a snap! JK it was a process and lots of back and forth plans but that's part of the fun. The transformation is pretty darn dramatic.
That's it for the master... come back tomorrow for part two- the kids bathroom! Enjoy!
p.s. The vanity and built-in storage were custom pieces built by one of our favorite cabinet guys in CT, Cabinet Specialties.
