This young family had completed several remodeling projects on the first floor of their 1980’s era home and the time had finally come where they wanted to focus on the second floor their master bath was first on the list. A modified floor plan borrowed space from an adjoining bedroom and closet to make room for new amenities. The floating vanity cabinets paired with quartz counters, wall-mounted fixtures, and mirrors featuring built-in lighting enhance the room’s sleek, clean look.
This kitchen serves as the unique focal point of a beautiful biophilic new build. This clean, streamlined, contemporary kitchen was designed for empty nesters looking for a spacious kitchen with two separate workstations and a layout designed for entertaining, cooking, and convenience.
These homeowners desired a master bath that was a true master retreat, soothing with neutral tones. They wanted the room to be light and spacious with both his and her vanities as well as a large shower area and a roomy water closet with lots of storage.
This entire floor plan was reworked, as the original shower was moved to the previous makeup area and some of the bath was expanded into what was the master closet. The combination of white marble on the floors, tops, and shower walls with a soft grey, added to the mix of the classic marble creates a one of a kind luxurious bath space.
