I can’t believe tomorrow is September already! I feel like this summer has just flown right by. Anyway, soooo I realized I haven’t shared any projects of mine yet so now I feel like it’s the perfect time to do so
I’ve been working with these sweet clients of mine for a little over a year now (of course COVID prolonged the projects). We worked on renovating two bathrooms- one is their daughter’s bathroom and the other one is their master bathroom which we had reconfigured the layout a little bit.
Their young daughter’s bathroom was designed knowing that she will be growing into it as she got older. My clients didn’t really have an idea as to how they wanted this bathroom to look, so I started out by trying to figure out the direction we would take. Once we decided on a color palette, I was able to take that information, put together a design and gather materials.
The bathroom they had prior was dark and outdated. The space did not have sufficient lighting so I wanted to make sure we addressed that in the new design. All of the fixtures were different metals which made it seem all over the place and not thought out well.
Making sure the space felt cohesive, comfortable, put together, and neutral was my goal for this bathroom (my clients knew they wanted to make this bathroom neutral since the master they wanted to switch it up and go with grays and blue tones). My clients loved how the space turned out and so do I. Here is the end result!
The master bathroom required a bit more work. We had to reconfigure the door to the bathroom and decided to close off the fireplace that no longer worked and then we’d have double doors making that grand entrance. Since we expanded the shower, we had to take the space where the door originally was so it just made more sense to get rid of the fireplace and move the new doors in its place.
Here are some before photos of the bathroom to get a better idea of what I’m talking about.
Since this renovation was not as simple as the first bathroom I designed, I felt it would be best to give my clients an idea as to how their new space would look. So I put together a 3D model of the space that way they can get a sense of the design.
My clients were able to get a visual on how their master bathroom would look like once we enlarged the shower, closed the fireplace and moved the doors. Sometimes it’s hard to envision a space so this gives a good representation of the design as a whole.
We wanted to create a spa-like feel but bring in a little bit of color since we played it rather safe with the other bathroom. After months of working with the contractor and woodworker for the built in, we added those last minute finishing touches and presented the clients with a spa-like master bath retreat! I’m so happy with how this space turned out and so are they. Happy clients, happy designer!
