One Of Our Recent Design And Build Projects - Master Suite


I’m incredibly excited today. I’m usually excited to talk about design, but today I’m even more enthusiastic, because today, I get to share the details of one of my recent projects with you.

10 Ways To Cozy Up Your Home For Fall

This project was a master bedroom suite. It had a very large existing bathroom, but it was very outdated and lacked some much-needed storage space.


Add rich color.

Although the bathroom was large, it had a corner jetted tub on a huge platform which took up an enormous amount of floor space. It was a large space with little functionality. My clients really didn’t use the jetted tub and dreamed of a large tiled shower instead.

Right inside the door to the bathroom, there was a very tiny closet. This small space was the only closet for the entire master bedroom space. My clients had very little room for their clothing and really desired a large organized closet space.

So, I went right to work designing a new master bedroom suite for them, which included a huge master closet. To do this, we began by taking some space from the existing closet and some space from the existing bathroom. Then we removed the sidewall and reframed both. This allowed us to create a new entrance to the closet from within the bedroom. Inside the new closet, we used gorgeous custom cabinetry, which provided my clients with lots of storage space. This new closet space included natural lighting and enough space for all their clothing and accessories.

In the new master bath, we created a much more efficient layout. We added a spacious master shower, a separate toilet area, two sinks, and an enormous amount of storage space. Then we created a beautiful custom shower with gorgeous porcelain tile, new fixtures, a hand shower, a shower seat, and a beautiful tile focal point on the main shower wall.

My client really wanted two sinks and a lot more storage in the new vanity area, so I created customized cabinetry to meet all of her storage needs, This included shallow cabinetry for smaller items and lower cabinetry, with lots of drawers and a pull-out hamper area.

Add rich color.

The backsplash over the vanity continued the use of beautiful tile, which created a classic but up-to-date focal point over the vanity and pulled the room together.

Modern pendant lights and classic fixtures, in a polished chrome finish, really sparkled with our teal-colored painted cabinetry and quartz countertops.

The remodeled bathroom also included a heated towel warmer and heated tile floor, which will be a welcome luxury whenever this master bathroom space is in use.

My client is a lover of happy, strong, colors and patterns, so I made sure the color scheme I used really created a happy and cheerful feeling in the new master bathroom and the adjoining master bedroom space. Textured fabrics in beautiful teal and orange tones speak to both spaces.

We even created custom bedding and window treatments as the finishing touch to match all the new furnishings on top of the beautiful, luxurious carpeting.

Finally, we created a new fireplace hearth and mantle, replacing the very un-proportioned existing fireplace and giving the room a new warm glow.

I’m so happy to say that my client loves this new master suite, and we are currently preparing to design and build another beautiful space with this lovely family!
