Transforming a 30 Year Old Master Suite
In a time when most people are going with stark grey and white color schemes this project was unique in that it stuck to traditional wood tones and neutral colors. The final result really looks great and reflects the homeowners taste very well.
The before / after pictures of this project are pretty dramatic. Walls were removed, the shower expanded and new vanity and closet furniture added. We also replaced the flooring in the master bedroom and painted the entire master suite.
The Brown’s were also wonderful people to work with. Very kind and welcoming. Betsy labored over ever material selection and made some really great choices. I even suggested she could have a second career as a designer but she just laughed and said “no way, too much work!”
Our Favorite Upgrades:
– Warm water bidet seat on toilet
– Hidden grab bars built into the design
– Walk-In shower with large bench
– Closet furniture to increase storage
– Flower mosaic accent tile in master shower
– Wide plank rustic hickory wood flooring in master bedroom and closet
“From our first meeting with Paul, my wife and I were happy with his ability to listen to what our ideas were and to talk through options with us. We had ideas, but no plans, and he helped those ideas take shape. As a result, we have a new master bathroom and a new kitchen as well as new wood flooring and ceilings in all of the downstairs rooms of our house.
The workers and subs that Paul brought into our home were all topnotch, and acted very considerately. They worked hard to keep our house livable despite the extensive renovations that were taking place. Paul kept me apprised of changes to the schedule and when delays were encountered, it always seemed like he was doing all he could to expedite things and keep the project moving. Finally, I thought Paul gave us valuable guidance when needed to avoid unnecessary expense and find workable solutions to challenges that were encountered”….. The Brown’s
This project began with the goal of updating the master bath and adding some grab bars. But after going thru a detailed design and selection process the homeowners decided to expand the scope of work to include the master closet and master bedroom.
We completely gutted the bath, opening it up significantly and creating a large walk in shower with a nice big bench for seating. The grab bars were integrated into the towel bars, shelving and shower system so they don’t look so obvious.
The old linen closet was replaced with a more space efficient linen cabinet and we added a storage tower to the vanity for even more storage.
