RUSTIC BATH REMODEL | YORK, PA

July 22nd, 2016      Leave a comment

I would love to know who came up with the first design to feature the “garden tub” so I could ask what on earth he or she was thinking.  These monstrosities were every suburban housewife’s dream in the 1990’s .

That dream is now every suburban wife’s nightmare and we are removing the garden tub out every master bathroom. So how did this dream turn into a nightmare?  Homeowner’s quickly learned a few things about the garden tub; first, it took forever to fill.  Second, unless the tub was equipped with a heater, the water would be cold by the time the tub was filled.  Third, it became costly to use and dreams of nightly soaks disappeared.  It is not unusual for homeowners to tell me they have used their tubs only once or twice in the last 25 years.

Such was the case in the bathroom remodel featured.  It had a garden tub with black tile on the deck and vanity top, chrome fixtures, forest green carpeting on the floor and builder’s grade oak cabinets. The homeowners wanted a rustic design which would coordinate with their Arts and Crafts décor.  They requested natural stone and wood finishes, a large walk in shower (no tub!) with dual shower heads and a large vanity.

Creating the floor plan for this Bathroom Remodel was easy once the indoor pool was removed (yes, the sarcasm is intentional).  We decided to leave the toilet in its existing location to save on cost. A roman style shower allowed me to maximize, both, the size of the shower and the length of the vanity.  Thus, the shower increased from, 3’ x 3’ to 4’ x 10’ and the six foot vanity increased to seven feet.  Our tile designer suggested a deconstructed design combining slate ledgestone and grey porcelain tile.   Glazed maple cabinetry complements the wood look porcelain floor tile.  Tan Brown granite is featured on the counter top and shower sills.  Brushed nickel fixtures work well with the grey tones of the slate as well as the warmth of the wood and stone.

The homeowners absolutely love their new bathroom and especially the walk in shower.  They don’t miss the tub at all. Imagine that…

CONTEMPORARY BATH REMODEL | YORK, PA

June 17th, 2016      Leave a comment

Our relationship with this couple, as with most, began with a phone call requesting an estimate for a custom bathroom remodel. Simple enough, we’ve done this dozens of times…

The Cape Cod style home had a first floor master bedroom with a bathroom across the hall. The existing master bedroom was generous in size for a Cape Cod but needed more natural light. Our clients requested more closet space and an attached custom contemporary master bath with separate shower and soaking tub.  In addition, they wished to relocate the laundry from the unfinished basement to the first floor and create a new powder room.

The solution was to move the master bedroom door over three feet.  This allowed us to take a few feet from the hall and the adjacent bedroom (and closet area) to create two closets and the master bath.  The existing hall bath was divided into a laundry room and powder room.  A transom window was installed over the headboard in the master to let in more light.

The client had specific needs for the custom master bath; a large shower with as much natural light as possible and a soaking tub which could accommodate his over 6’ frame and the small 5’ stature of his wife. The shower was in the corner with two exterior walls, which left one location for the plumbing.  We boxed the plumbing in a center column, wrapped it in tile and installed glass on either side to let in as much light as possible. A lava stone bathtub from Victoria & Albert was selected and paired with Sigma faucets in an oil rubbed bronze finish.  Antique white painted and glazed cabinetry was topped with granite. This same granite was used to top the bench seat in the shower.

What started as a phone call developed into a standing appointment for over a year.   Each Saturday were greeted at 8 am with fresh croissants from the local market bakery. We revised plans, made selections and adjusted estimates to keep within the budget. As the job progressed and our relationship grew, this couple decided to start working on their next project…a full custom kitchen remodel!
