Croasdaile Project: Multiple Full Bathroom Renovations
When working with residential clients, we encounter projects where bathroom design selections are from the original construction of the home. Whether they’re from the 1960’s, 70’s, or earlier, these types of projects typically require a full bath renovation to include structural repairs as well as extensive plumbing and/ electrical upgrades. For the more recently constructed homes, the structure of these bathrooms may be sound, however the styling can still seem quite dated. With a recent project near Croasdaile Country Club in Durham, we performed multiple full bathroom renovations to bring the style up to a much more modern and elegant look.
Challenges of Multiple Full Bathroom Renovations
When performing more than one full bathroom renovation at a time, there can be a number of additional challenges to consider in the planning phase of a project, including:
- Keeping a cohesive style between the two bathrooms.
- Ensuring that homeowners have access to at least one working bathroom during the entire renovation.
- Overcoming dated design techniques such as large soffits and mirrors.
With this project, our clients were interested in a more modern and updated look in both their master and hall bathrooms. These existing bathrooms had wallpaper on the walls, as well as large soffits over the vanities that housed recessed lighting and occupied valuable space. While both bathrooms were functional and well-maintained, our clients wanted to see their their outdated tile floors, plumbing fixtures, cabinetry and showers transformed to something new and beautiful.
The full bathroom renovations consisted of a full gut of both bathrooms as well as the following:
In the master bathroom renovation, we added new shaker style doors on a stained double vanity with furniture feet, as well as rectangular undermount sinks and granite countertops. The shower tile surround consisted of marble tile with a shell accent band and a built in shelf. For the floor tile we used a staggered pattern with an almond colored tile.
All plumbing fixtures, accessories and cabinet pulls for the master bathroom remodel had a brushed nickel finish. The shower faucet featured the popular rain style head.
We installed new sconce lighting over the vanity that accentuated the new rectangular mirrors.
In the hall bathroom renovation, we also used shaker style doors on a painted double vanity. We used Quartzite countertops with rectangular undermount sinks. We installed a new Duravit soaker tub with beveled subway tile surround, built-in shelving, frameless glass doors and a polished nickel rain style shower head.
With the hall bathroom we also used all polished nickel accessories and fixtures, and installed new recessed lighting along with new rectangular mirrors.
