About the Winning Project

To transform this small, outdated bath the Thompson Remodeling design team reconfigured an existing walk-in closet and bathroom into a spacious, four-piece bath.

This master bathroom is exactly what the clients envisioned. We transformed it from cramped and dated to classically modern and grand. By smartly selecting materials and finishes we were able to combine classic and modern aesthetics and also stay within their budget.

Now, the homeowners have their own bathtub and oversized shower for bathing. There’s plenty of space for both to be using the vanity at the same time. We also vastly improved the closet space by moving it outside of the bathroom. And even though they lost a walk-in closet they gained two reach in closets!
