A Luxurious Indoor-Outdoor Master Bathroom Addition

 
 

 
 
After years of sharing a tiny master bathroom, our recent clients in Fort Worth, Texas were more than ready to add on the custom-designed bathroom of their dreams! Along with adding more square footage and luxury features, they also wanted to incorporate their outdoor space into the remodel. The home sits on a large lot with beautiful, mature trees in their secluded backyard, so it was very important to them that we “bring the outside in” by including large windows and a skylight into the design. They also loved the idea of installing an exterior door, allowing them to easily step out to the patio on a beautiful morning.
 
 
During our discussion regarding the design, our clients noted that they planned to live the rest of their lives in this home. Any time we hear this from any of our clients – whether it be a kitchen, bathroom or whole house remodel– we always suggest including age-in-place features in the plans. Simple things like widened doorways, barrier-free showers, anti-slip flooring, and grab bars are all small modifications that can make the space safer and more comfortable for aging homeowners. This bathroom is proof that you can have age in place features and still have an extremely modern, trendy space!

An Open & Airy Guest Bath Suited for Two

Guest bathroom remodels are frequently among the top items on our client’s wish lists. It might not seem as important as the kitchen or the master bathroom, but when you consider that the guest bathroom is what all of your guests use upon visiting your home, you can’t help but want it to look nice. On top of aesthetic appeal, you also want the space to be functional. In many cases, the homes that we remodel are at least 20-30 years old, and the bathrooms are not only outdated, but also have plumbing issues, poor lighting, broken or missing tile, and eroded fixtures – not ideal for guests or prolonged visitors! Our recent clients in Arlington, Texas had similar issues and chose to include the guest bathroom remodel with some other projects we were completing throughout their home. Read more

A Glamorous Master Bathroom Renovation

Our recent bathroom project involved renovating a large master bathroom in an upper-end Arlington, Texas home. The existing bathroom was quality and functional, but it was definitely dated with the typical brown tones, wallpaper and fixtures of the 1980’s. All of the dark, earthy colors paired with the poor lighting created a cave-like atmosphere, which made the space feel dim and smaller than it actually was. The clients wanted to brighten the room with a fresher, more modern look, updated features and specialty amenities to match the rest of their luxury home. Read more

A Master Bathroom Stuck in ’92 Gets a 2017 Refresh

 
 

 
 
Our most recent remodeling project involved updating the master bathroom in a 1992 home in Grapevine, Texas. While the original bathroom was functional, it definitely lacked the aesthetic appeal of the rest of the home, which we recently helped the clients renovate. There was no need to change the layout of the space, aside from installing a smaller tub to allow for a larger shower. The idea was to simply upgrade the room with new flooring, tiles, vanities, counter tops, and lighting. It’s amazing what an impact these changes can make!

A Dated Master Bathroom Gets a New Look & The Ultimate Shower

Our recent clients in Arlington, Texas wanted to update their original 1970’s master bathroom with something they had been dreaming of for a long time – a remodeled shower. Due to the layout of the original bathroom and the built-in corner soaking tub that they never used, there was a lot of wasted space. Not to mention the original shower, which was lack-luster and very small. The clients also had to share a sink, which is never ideal in a shared master bathroom!  After discussing these issues with the clients, our designers modified the floor plans and redesigned the space by removing the clunky corner tub and tiny shower and converting the entire wall into a spacious, luxury shower. The vanity was also updated with an additional sink, custom electrical outlets, and reworked drawers for better storage. Read more

Master Bathroom Remodel and Tips on Bathroom Design

Here are some tips if you are planning on remodeling a bathroom:

  • Figure out a way to do a total remodel rather than a partial one. If you do a little here and a little there, you will always have a bathroom that needs remodeled, and it will cost a lot more if and when it ever gets completely finished.
  • Don’t be afraid to move walls and fixtures. If you look at an overview of your bathroom floor plan, you will see it’s just a box with the various bathroom components set in the space. Most of the time the layout is just fine, but sometimes, moving things around makes sense in order to rid the space of any annoyances.
  • Have fun with the design process. Collect pictures you run across of bathroom features that you like. This collection of pictures will reveal the overall look you want, and will help the designer and contractor make sure you get the bathroom you are dreaming of.
  • Hire a professional designer. Even if you have a good sense of color and just know what you want, an experienced bathroom designer will be able to tie it all together and have the answers the contractor is looking for to ensure a smooth and successful project.
