One of our current projects is getting a new master suite… see pictures of the progress so far!

Progress shots of the master bathroom.

a. This picture shows the toilet room floor. We used a 12″ x 24″ tile with a glass mosaic as an accent on the floor.

b.The master walk-in shower features a waterfall of mosaic tiles in shades of watery blues, earthy greens, crisp whites, and soft browns. It adds a nice detail to the shower wall while giving us a chance to put some interest and color on the wall.

c. Here, you can see the beginnings of the custom, curved edge vanity. The cabinet will be finished with enamel and entire back wall and side walls will get mirror applied to them.

d. This is a sweet little ‘beauty’ shot of the vanity up close. The curves add a nice feminine touch to the bathroom. This will be the perfect place to sit to enjoy coffee and get ready for the day, or to unwind in the evening.

Some of you might remember this note:

Well after the demo, construction, design, and installation of Joey’s bathroom he approves!

We had everything ripped out down to the studs. Some highlights of the room:

  • We chose a deep blue for the walls
  • We designed a mushroom colored double vanity so each boy has his own sink.
  •  In a bathroom for two boys a Cambria top seemed like a no-brainer! – we used Sussex.
  • The custom window treatments allowed us to put in a shelf for their bobblehead collection.
  • The boys’ parents and grandparents were very involved in sports back in their high school and college days, just like the boys are now, so we had newspaper clippings and pictures of framed in a collection of black and metallic frames to hang in the bathroom.
  • The shower features tile EVERYWHERE for easy clean-ability.

We wanted to carry the vintage sports concept through the bathroom so the wood panelling, hooks, and shelves are reminiscent of a locker room.

A peek at the shower tile and deco glass tile.

Here are some of the framed sports pictures that line the 'gallery' entrance into the bathroom.

One of our latest projects involved a second floor bathroom that would be used by the family’s little boy as well as guests that were hanging out by the second floor family room fireplace or watching movies and playing games in the hang out area. We wanted the bathroom to keep in line with the rest of the home’s design, while still being a little masculine and something that would ‘grow up’ with the little boy and not be too childish right off the bat.

We settled on a color scheme of navy and grey and after finding classic grey subway tiles, a deep grey chair rail, and glossy navy accent tiles we were ready to roll! The floor is a mushroom colored 1″ x 1″ hex to warm up the space and we used a soft grey Benjamin Moore paint on the walls.  We found a Brass Blue granite remnant that tied in perfectly with our colors. The lights add a classic modern feel to the space as well.

Here is a preliminary sketch of the bathroom showing the cabinet and lighting location.

Top: This shot shows the cabinet as you enter the bathroom. Bottom: Here is a shot of the shower area with Kohler fixtures.

While the color is a little distorted, you can see the Brass Blue granite top as well as the installed wall tile.

Master bathroom project

December 13, 2011

Recently, we finished a master bathroom project and would like to share some of the ‘after’ snapshots and hauthaus drawings with you, our loyal reader!

Below, you’ll see the floor plan which shows the door to the bathroom is directly off of the bedroom (at the top of the drawing). The tall linen cabinet and double sink vanity are opposite the wall with the free standing bathtub and glass shower enclosure.  We included a special make-up area for our client on the other side of the shower. The door at the end of the bathroom leads to the walk-in closet.

finished: Izzy’s bathroom

December 9, 2011

We blogged recently about Izzy’s bathroom and showed you a ‘behind the scenes’ snippet of what went in to building it…

Well now it’s done! Check out the final shots of the bathroom from all angles.

Here's Izzy's bathroom with the mirror, lights, and towel bars in place. See her lovely white and black mosaic floor tiles, the fun pop of glacier blue deco tiles on the walls, and Benjamin Moore's Dill Pickle on the walls!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The top shot shows inside Izzy's shower. We continued the deco tile in there, as well as the white subway tile. We had shampoo shelves installed to keep the bottles off of the floor. The bottom shot shows the bathroom from the shower area. There is a lowe vanity seat for Izzy to practice her make-up!

One way to tackle the storage space beneath your bathroom or kitchen sink is to put in a bank of drawers. Drawers are one way to ensure that you’re using every inch of cabinet space since you can pull them all the way out (with the help of full-extension glides) and get to the very back and bottom of the cabinet.

In this bathroom, we designed a bank of drawers under this sink. The top ‘drawer’ is false, while the second one is cut in a U shape to accommodate the plumbing. The bottom drawer is full-sized with a notch cut out of the very back, and it’s deep enough to store toilet paper, bottles of shampoo standing up, bathroom cleaners and other toiletries.

If installing a drawer under a sink, make sure that it is U-shaped to accomodate the plumbing.

 
 
 

izzy’s bathroom progress

November 30, 2011

Here are some snapshots of Izzy's bathroom progress.

Izzy is a stylish little girl who is not afraid of color… and boy oh boy does her bathroom have it!

Check out this behind-the-scenes look at how her very own bathroom is turning out!

 
 
1. Since this floor will get tile, the installers had to make sure that the floor was level… they poured the leveling agent and taped off the room to prep for it.
 
2. The floor tile was laid and is being hidden (and protected) under paper as the installers work on the white subway tile walls and glacier blue accent ribbon.
 
3. The shower tile is up and the rest of the wall tile is getting close! The White Ice granite counter tops were installed too…
 
4. After the tile and counter tops, the plumbers, electricians, and painters are itching to get in!
 
 
 

It's painted!

 
 
 
With the bathroom freshly painted, the mirror, artwork, and accessories will finish off the bathroom!
 
I bet Izzy’s is so excited to move in – wouldn’t you be!?
