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.

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!?

a look at in floor heat

October 18, 2011

We recently had one of our clients install in floor heat in their master bathroom and sun porch. If you’re considering this method of heating, here are some points to consider.

Pros:

  1. Consistent heat – this way of heating helps there to be less hot and cool pockets in your space and offers a more consistent heat throughout the space.
  2. It’s quieter than a traditional furnace.
  3. While it costs more to install upfront, it saves money in the long run because your thermostat can stay regulated easier.
  4. You can set it on a timer, so it’s only on when you’re using the room. (You can set it so the bathroom is nice and toasty warm on those cold winter mornings!)
  5. This type of system works well with solar-powered sources.
  6. It is recommended for those with allergies because, unlike a forced air unit, there aren’t lots of allergens floating around from room to room

Cons:

  1. It is more costly upfront to install because it should be installed by a professional who knows what they are doing to make sure it will work correctly.

You should take into consideration what material you will cover it with. The thickness and type of flooring will determine how much of the heat will enter the room.

 In floor heat can be installed anywhere – even under a wood floor if it’s properly installed!

This master bath shot was taken right after the in floor heat was installed. Now it's just waiting for marble tile!
