Master Bathroom Renovation

This extremely large master bathroom in Sterling, VA was in need of a facelift.  It was a builder’s grade bathroom with old white octagon tile on the bathroom floor, 4 x 6 tile surrounding the old jacuzzi tub, an outdated cherry-stained vanity, and bulky chrome shower doors.

Here one day, gone the next!!! 

All of the tile on the bathroom floor was jack hammered out of an old bed of mortar. Old vanity, mirror, toilet, jacuzzi bathtub, and shower….gone. We completely gutted the entire bathroom, including replacing the plumbing, reworking the electrical, and applying new sub-flooring.  

Next, we focused on the new shower.  After framing it with durock, we installed white marble octagon-shaped tile on the shower floor and staggered 12 x 24 white marble tiles on the shower walls.  Additionally, we placed a 4 x12 marble border around the sides and top of the shower. All of the chrome plumbing supplies are Grohe and all of the marble is from Marble Systems. 

On those cool mornings, there is nothing nicer than stepping onto a heated bathroom floor. My crew installed the floor heating on top of a base layer of durock.  Then, we placed white marble 18 x 18 tile going diagonally across the bathroom floor for a unique feature.

Once the flooring was completed, it was time to bring in the tub… not a small feat!  My guys had to bring it in sideways through the doors in the house but thankfully it arrived in two pieces, the base, and the basin.  We situated it under the skylight in the bathroom and centered it in front of the window. 

Then, we brought in the vanity and positioned it on the wall opposite the shower and tub.  We chose a well-defined double vanity with a marble countertop that complemented the marble throughout the entire bathroom.

There were two finishing touches in this stunning master bathroom. First, my crew installed the full glass panel shower door and walls, giving the bathroom a sleek and open feel.  Second, we brought in a large beveled edge mirror and hung it over the vanity.  Lastly, we installed three chrome sconces on the actual mirror, providing plentiful lighting.

Kitchen Design

Kitchen Design

Kitchens are one of my favorite spots in the house to renovate because they are the heart of a house.  Pictured above is a kitchen renovation that I did in Great Falls, VA. Custom cabinetry is a key feature in maximizing the storage in a kitchen.  They are customized to fit precisely in the room which doesn’t occur with standard cabinetry; plus, they last longer and retain their value.  For this project, we chose a gorgeous marble to accent the custom kitchen island and a neutral color palette to complement it.  The final touches included all new stainless steel kitchen appliances, hardware, and accent lighting.

Bathroom Renovation & Remodeling

Bathroom Renovation & Remodeling

I am excited to share this bathroom with you because it is the bathroom of MY dreams… welcome to my master bathroom.  When designing my bathroom, I wanted to create a space that felt bright, open, and, most importantly, clean. Therefore, I decided to opt for a simplistic and neutral color scheme, which would also help me create a sense of luxury in my bathroom. To kickstart this color scheme and design, I opted for patterned marble flooring from Marble Systems. Here, the mix of grey and white is nicely complemented by a snow-white border and marble baseboard – giving the space a distinctive, luxury feel. Since I chose statement flooring, I went for simple walls.  I designed my own custom vanity so that I could have the exact storage space that I needed and my shower giving it a rainfall showerhead, a main showerhead, and another handheld unit.  The last must-have for me was a large tub… what’s the use in your dream bathroom without a large tub to relax and enjoy it in?!

Custom Closets

Custom Closets

Having a beautifully designed and smartly organized closet is key to stress-free mornings. There is nothing worse than your closet being full of dirty and disorganized laundry when you need to get ready quickly or you have a busy day ahead. You should be able to walk into your closet and know exactly where everything is. That’s why customizing your closet to be organized in a way that makes sense for you is so important!

Built-in Bookcases

Built-in Bookcases

Unlike a regular bookcase that you might purchase from a furniture store and have moved into a room, built-in bookcases present a variety of creative opportunities and will pave the way for a more seamless design. They are the ultimate storage solution, turning storage into beautiful decor – the marriage between beauty and function. Whether you’re interested in a built-in bookcase with a hidden desk, or a case framing a window with a little place to sit, we’ve got you covered!

Industrial Shower Install

The unusual industrial-style shower door might be my favorite feature in this newly remodeled bathroom!  The shower door system included a solid chrome rail at the top with a glass stationary panel on the right and a sliding door on the left.  Additionally, the shower received a recessed shelving unit, seat, and large chrome shower head.  

For the shower tile, we chose a medium shade of gray that complimented the flooring which was installed next.  The shower flooring is 1 x 1 white and gray tumbled marble that aids in preventing slipping. This tile flowed well into the bathroom flooring, which is large 12 x 24 tiles of white marble with gray grain. 

What are the benefits of a sliding glass shower door?

  • They save space. Instead of having a door that swings out, a sliding door easily tucks behind its corresponding glass panel.  Not only does a sliding glass shower door save space, it makes the bathroom appear larger.
  • No shower curtain needed. Shower curtains are difficult to keep clean because they readily accumulate mold and mildew.  On the contrary, a sliding glass shower door is easy to keep clean because you only have to spray and wipe. Additionally, a sliding glass shower door allows for a very bright shower, whereas one with a shower curtain can be dark if adequate lighting is not in place.
  • No water dripping on the floor.  A sliding glass shower door never hangs over the bathroom floor so you don’t have to worry about your bathroom floor becoming slippery.  Therefore, when you are in the shower and realized that you have forgotten something outside the shower like a razor or soap, you won’t have to worry about opening the door and it dripping on the floor. The shower door water stays in the shower!
  • They can be custom-made. Having a shower door that is custom-made for the space eliminates leaking.  
  • They are safer for children. With the easy sliding, the chances of smashed fingers decrease significantly with sliding glass shower doors.  Plus, they are safer for your walls; they can’t swing open swiftly to have the shower door handle slam into and leave a nice dent in your wall.  

When considering your next shower or bathroom remodel, I highly suggest a sliding glass shower door for its appearance and convenience.
