There’s a common assumption that master bathrooms must have a double vanity. While it’s true that most homeowners do choose to include two sinks or a double vanity in their bathroom remodel, there are times when one sink is actually preferred and has a few great benefits as well.
Bathrooms may be the smallest rooms in your home, but they’re also the most used by both your family and your guests. This is why bathroom remodels top the list of many homeowners’ wish lists. Designing small spaces can be challenging. Bathrooms in particular require a layout that maximizes functionality and careful selection of materials and finishes the best suit the owner’s preferences. Focal points are an important part of every renovation design, especially in bathrooms. They are the details that create visual interest and anchor points for your aesthetic choices.
For years we’ve been designing master bathrooms that improve functionality and create a more relaxing atmosphere for homeowners. Finishes and fixtures that suit our client’s color preferences are always incorporated, and many like to add showers or bathtubs that can transform their bath into a spa-like experience. We don’t anticipate any of that going away; in fact, wellness has come to the forefront of manufacturer’s like Kohler and Toto’s new product offerings for the bath.
After a decade or so, our bathrooms can start showing their age. Just like an out-of-date wardrobe, the tell tale signs of an old remodeling trend can begin to feel dated. In this master bath it was the glass block shower wall, which was a very dominant feature in the space. Our clients came to us with a vision to give their bath a makeover by updating the finishes and reconfiguring the shower the entrance.
There are times when remodeling a room doesn’t require expansion by taking down walls or reconfiguring space. Perhaps the area is already adequate in size but the existing materials and features are simply out-of-date, worn-out, or don’t fit your style preference. When this is the case, we call this type of project an upscale pull and replace remodel.
When dreaming about the perfect master suite remodel, there are two important ingredients that are always in the mix– the closet space and the master bath. Too often, existing homes will have small closets and baths in the master suite leaving homeowners frustrated and ultimately unsatisfied. At Thompson Remodeling, we have seen our share of strange configurations, but that’s part of the fun. We enjoy the challenge of reconfiguring space to make it work better for our clients.
