Dream Master Bath.. :^)

Project by GaryL posted 04-09-2012 at 01:48 PM 1852 views 2 times favorited 9 comments Add to Favorites Watch

Finished this bathroom renovation a few months ago. The homeowner pretended to want to stay to a budget but I soon found out she was willing to spend to get what she wanted. Bye Bye budget, hello to a fantastic bathroom she loves. She’s glad she did not make (too many) concessions on the design and material selections to get what she would enjoy for years.
Kohler whirlpool tub, Brookhaven Cognac Cherry cabinets, Moen fixtures ($$$ she went all out here), marble on floors and shower walls with the Schluter Kerdi system.

THE BEFORE…...demo was mildy started at the time….

WOW! That’s awesome. Your cabinets turned out great. I really like the molding and the two side cabinets. Very nice.

Did you install the shower glass or sub it out? The shower turned out great. I really like the jets! Did you also install new windows?

Great job.

I wish I had installed the glass and just had my glass guy supply it. He had to do it twice before I was (so so) happy. Can we count to 43 days before he finally had it done… :(
The windows are staying but will be getting new thermal panes do to seal leaks. That will be done when the exterior renovation starts.
I did everything except the plumbing and glass. That was do mainly because of getting spread too thin. Had to bring in some help.

Looks outstanding. If you don’t mind me asking, what’s the dimensions on the tub, and where did you purchase it?

If I recall correctly the tub was 30×60 with 6 jets and built in heater. It was ordered from Lowes by the homeowner.

Wow – this is really stunning.

The cabinets are gorgeous, but I think what I find most striking are the patterns and contrasts of textures in the tiling and stone work throughout. Outstanding design work.

And, I feel compelled to say… removing that ~1975 metallic silver wallpaper, while a trivial part of this job, went a long way to start this bathroom down the right path as well… ;-)

Hey Gary,
This is truly outstanding! Your work is just amazing to me.
How much of the design and layout did you have a hand with?

Thanks Mark.
I worked with the client on getting a layout that would work with the windows. My cabinet designer created the cabinet layout and I designed the shower and tub deck. The homeowner chose all the materials with a little help…i.e…....I can’t wait until next year for you to choose, so pick this one…....aaarrrghhhh.

Ah yes. I’ve met your client. When, I think about it, I believe I have met 100’s of your clients relatives. It’s probably not so much that they don’t like anything. It’s probably because they are afraid of making a mistake they have to live with.

In any event, I like the choices in that restroom.
