Last week, we wrapped up a bathroom renovation project in Elkins Park. The couple whose house we worked on was so excited about their new bathroom that the wife gave the shower a test run before the project was even completely finished! To say the least, she was extremely satisfied with the results.
We transformed this space from an outdated musky bathroom into a warm, elegant place for a couple to relax and comfortably pamper in. The existing bathroom was surrounded by a dull brown ceramic tiling, with accessories to match. The overall look of the prior bathroom was outdated and dingy – the accessories looked almost plastic.
So, we stripped everything down and gave the
bathroom a complete makeover - floors, walls,
lighting fixtures, accessories, vanity, mirror, toilet
- the works!
The couple wanted a classy, chic and elegant bathroom. They wanted the space to feel posh yet inviting. So, we chose materials that reflected this agenda and created a warm and relaxing spa-like bathroom.
Using neutral colors and warm lighting, the caramel color of the tiles we chose reflect and emit a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere. The walls and floors are Antico stone field tiles.
We installed a custom designed marble tile detail
on the floor and the shower walls, 1/2″x1/2″ and 1″x1″
Mosaic stone, respectively.
The couple handpicked the vanity from Pottery barn that includes a granite top and drop in sink, a 24″ framed mirror and duo sconces add to the group.
We installed sliding glass doors with chrome handles to encase the shower. The handlebars and shower accessories inside compliment the rim of the glass doors.
There is an additional light in the exhaust fan,
and two recessed lights in the ceiling,
offering more brightness into the area.
Needless to say, the finished product was a complete flip over from what had existed before. The couple is now happy to wake up in the morning and get ready in their brand new bathroom.
The fireplace is sometimes known as the warm heart of the home, and our client had a clear vision of what she wanted her home’s heart to look like.
The bricks in the fireplace had previously been badly water damaged, so she had hired masons to line the interior of the fireplace with a wire mesh.
Then, they put stucco on the walls to prepare the fireplace for thin bricks and decorative tiles to be installed- this is when we came in.
The client knew exactly what she wanted- she sent us sketches and gave us a list of materials, which included Endicott Thin Brick and Tiles and Black Grout from Devon Tile.
The project took a total of only four days to create a quality renovation . The materials chosen were Endicott’s Thin Brick in Manganese Ironspot (smooth texture), 6×6 decorative tiles, black grout between the tiles, and black mortar between the bricks.
The level of detail that our client focused on was very important to her. As with any design, details and intricacies
add a tasteful touch to a space.
