Master Suite Remodel
We recently had the opportunity to completely redesign a Master Bedroom for a local customer. This century-old house had an 8×10 room adjoining the Master Bedroom that had at some point been used as a bathroom and then later a laundry. However, for years it had been simply storage and any plumbing was no longer functioning. There were no working lights or fixtures in the ceiling and there was an old unused water heater in the corner.
Our first goal was to transform this room into a Master Bath with a sitting tub / shower combination. The customer also wanted tile floor with radiant heat and custom cabinets.
This was not the only area that required attention though. The bedroom did not have a real closet and was in need of some repairs and updating. The ceiling showed evidence of an A/C leak. The paint scheme was dated and incomplete. It did have a decent laminate floor that tied in with the rest of the house. It also had a fireplace, but the tile surround was plain looking and just needed an extra touch. Finally, there was a desperate need for closet space since we were turning the old “catch-all” room into a bathroom.
Our goal with the bedroom was to create a space where the client felt comfortable and at home. We wanted a room that was welcoming, a retreat after a long day at work. The room did have plenty of windows so no extra lighting was needed, but it definitely could use a special touch. We did this by carefully selecting the wall and ceiling colors, adding a walk-in closet, and building a custom mantle and surround for the fireplace. We also built a custom barn door for the new bathroom out of locally-sourced reclaimed cedar.
