The Belmar New Jersey homeowners have a beautiful home, but they couldn’t stand their bathroom. They sought to make the master bathroom as pleasant as the rest of their home. They hired Design Build Planners to create a master bathroom design that included a complete gutting of the existing bathroom. Pictured to the right is a dollhouse overview of the remodeling project.
As previously mentioned, the existing Monmouth County bathroom needed to be gutted. After, the shower and a side wall were eliminated in order to make way for an owner-supplied storage cabinet. Fitting with the recent trends, the homeowners elected to eliminate the tub area and convert it into an open shower that included a bench seat. In addition, new vanity Andersen windows and a vanity cabinet. Special extras included a heated towel bar, new tile, lighting, and a new shower surface mount rain head.
Here is the overview of the shower remodeling design scope:
- Demo bathroom to stud and subfloor
- Remove shower and side wall to add a tall storage pantry
- Remove tub and install an open shower with bench seat
- Frameless glass partition, level entry access
- Extended niche
- Surface mount rain head, body sprays and handheld
- Heated towel bar
- Floating vanity with open shelf, single vessel sink with dual faucets
- Floating toilet with 2×6 wall for tank
- Lighting per plan
- Tile in shower to the ceiling; on ceiling and floor
- Tile on non-wet walls to 48″
- Tile on vanity wall to the ceiling
- Tile on floor
The homeowners style preferences were for a sleek finish. They 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 preferences. 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.
