The North Brunswick, New Jersey homeowners felt as if it were time to upgrade their existing master bathroom in order to meet current trends. They hired Design Build Planners to create a bathroom remodeling designs that would complement the many owner supplied items that were to be installed. To the right is a dollhouse overview of the project.
One of the central components of the plan was to eliminate the tub, and build a customized tiled shower in the bath tub’s former area. This swap is becoming a common trend in bathroom remodels. In addition, the homeowners supplied vanities, vessel sinks, and a tall cabinet, which were all installed. Finally, an alcove was built into the closet wall and it had glass shelving.
Here is the overview of the bathroom remodeling design scope.
- Demo bathroom to stud and sub floor
- Remove tub and install a large shower (approximately 6′ x 4′)
- Install dual head rain head and dual handheld fixtures
- Double niche in side wall
- Bench seat along exterior wall
- Knee wall and frameless glass enclosure
- 4’3 “his” vanity with drawers and low profile vessel sinks and custom mirror
- 4’9 “her” vanity with drawers and low profile vessel sinks and custom mirror
- Tall pantry storage (optional makeup storage location)
- Build open storage into closet with glass shelves
- Tile to shower in ceiling, shower floor, shower knee walls
- Tile in open storage, on floor, as base molding
- Wall mounted sconces as at the sides of the mirrors
- Recessed light over toilet, at tall storage, and moisture resistant in shower
The homeowners drew their inspiration from kitchen projects featured on Houzz.com. The design options are a result of homeowners online research combined with an in-home consultation with Design Build Planners. There is also a proprietary profile checklist that homeowners fill out that depicts their lifestyle and bathroom space use. After compiling this information, Design Build Planners incorporates their construction knowledge and design creativity for the space with a focus on the budget and overall investment.
