Change. Change is good, but it also has the ability to drive me bonkers. Paint color that is one shade in the can and a totally different shade on the wall also has the ability to drive me completely bats%*! crazy. It is this kind of particular color bump in the road that brings about the decision to change a paint color. If it doesn’t look right you do it over. It makes the client is happy and that’s what matters.
The master bathroom remodel project is officially completed. Before images and info post is here. What Dave the Builder lacks in the professional photographer department he more than makes up for in the professional builder/remodeling department.
The new color on the freshly repainted and completed walls is not translating well in the photos. See what appears to be three completely different paint colors in the image below? The wall between the tub and shower is the closest to the true color, Sherwin-Williams Renwick Beige SW 2805.
From demo to prep
to master bathroom remodel project completed success.
Making things pretty and new creates a mess, but it is so worth it! This was about the time in the master bathroom remodel project where a bit of design and decorating persuasion came into play.
Two vanities, two sinks, two faucets, two lights- you’ve got to go with two mirrors.
And two mirrors it is! I purposely removed the color field out of the image below to emphasize a point to the client. We both loved the result and selected it to print and frame.
Great space for a master bathroom walk in closet and extra linens storage.
The client requested the stained louvered doors leading into the master bedroom remain.
I requested the louvered doors leading into the walk in closet be painted to match the trim. A win-win situation.
The inspiration and the idea for the design direction we will be going in for the master closet. Fabulous!
Another project completed.
Finishing touches are the best friend of a big reveal. Fashion, interiors, meals- it’s all about the presentation and the attention to detail. The master bathroom remodel project is now in the detail phase, namely, bathroom window treatment ideas. My better half is not happy with the results of the final paint application, the hardware install is not quite there, and my fixation with the cloudy mirrors who could benefit greatly from a meeting with vinegar and newspaper is driving me nuts. The “it’s perfect!” point is coming into view and that’s what matters.
This master bathroom remodel project for hire is more construction remodel than interior design and decorating based. We went with 60% of the client’s choices and the client went with 40% of ours. That is 100, isn’t it? Cost and in-stock availability remain the biggest considerations behind construction and design. Some projects present the need for custom fixtures and special materials orders, and then there are the projects where the materials are just a convenient trip to the local lumber yard, building supply, paint and home improvement store away. This one falls into the latter.
While I’m waiting for paint to dry and fixtures to fix, I’m working on the finishing details. I’ve been consulted to design the window treatment for the single window in the master bathroom. The window itself is fixed and the glass is textured for privacy. The client wants a working treatment, and what the client wants…
I want to stay as true to the aesthetic and period of the house as possible, but I also want the ease of operation and look a modern treatment offers. We both agreed and narrowed it down to a roman in either jute or textured fabric. A custom tier curtain is also in the running.
I fell in love with this new but made to look old distressed piece and immediately had it or something very similar to it in mind to use as a cornice treatment.
Do you prefer curtains, blinds, shades, shutters or no window treatment at all for a bathroom window?
When our team completes a project success is measured by the satisfaction seal of approval from the client. If the client immediately hires you for another project it’s a pretty good indicator of job well done.
We celebrated this master bathroom remodel and the upcoming project hire with a Places In The Home remodel dance. Part safety dance, part remodel celebration boogie.
The presentation board for the master bathroom remodel captures the design and decor element the client requested.
Good bones and an even better layout, structurally speaking, removed the need to move walls and reroute plumbing. The focus was all about aesthetic updates complete with new fixtures and materials. We can certainly do that!
The first to go was the fiberglass shower and bath inserts. Mosaic tiles were used for the shower floor. The intent here is twofold- texture and palette variation of blended neutrals.
We constructed the layers of the shower pan using a vinyl membrane and concrete (technical jargon for we built a custom shower pan).
Here’s a preview of the shower progress.
We selected 12″ x 12″ ceramic tile for the flooring, bath and shower walls and shower floor.
Moving onward and upward!
