Project Highlight: Colorado Inspired Master Bath Remodel

“Our bathroom was in desperate need of a redesign,” stated the owner of this Lake Kesslerwood East1995 home. “There were four doors within this small area – closet, linen closet, commode and entry – and they took up too much space. We also wanted a larger vanity and shower, and a smaller tub.” Addressing these functionality issues was just the beginning of the design of this new master bath.  Bringing in the materials that captured their unique style is what set the project apart.

Design Phase:  According to the CaseIndy designer, “To better suit the needs of our clients, we reconfigured the original footprint. Flipping the placement of the original shower and garden tub provided the space needed for the larger shower. Removing the walls around the linen closet and the commode room eliminated the doors and opened the space. By adding a small linen closet to an empty space behind the vanity wall, and including stand-alone cabinetry, we were able to increase the amount of storage space in the room.”

New maple vanity cabinetry stained in a spice color  add a rustic look. The linen cabinet in the same color included a mocha glaze to add depth to the raised panel style. A bronze quartz countertop, oil-rubbed bronze plumbing, and copper light fixtures all compliment the tone set by the stacked stone wall. Large crown molding stained to match the cabinetry add to the high-end feel of the space. Large floor tiles were installed to allow the space to feel larger than its actual footprint.

Stacked stone back splashOn the opposite side of the room, the shower and tub area were covered in a warm, golden tile with glass accent tile in a Tobacco color. The lighter color of the quartz used for the shower bench seat, niche shelving, end walls and threshold lighten the deeper tones of the tile.

However, the size and functionality of the shower, and the stacked stone wall turn are what we really love.” Paying attention to how the new space would blend with the adjacent master bedroom brought a cohesive feel to the whole area. By blending their functional needs with their tastes, we were able provide the homeowner with a master bathroom of their dreams.
