When I embarked on the journey of making over a master bathroom in a very lovely home we had to work within the existing shell of the bathroom. The “tub/no tub” question was answered and unanswered several times before we began demo. We landed on “no tub” as the clients were planning to stay in the home for at least several more years and a tub was of no use to them. My clients asked me to educate them on the little luxuries a master bath can provide. We talked about things like heated floors, heated towel racks, audio visual equipment, lights on sensors and of course all the fun shower spray options. With consideration to the budget and space limitations not all the upgrades were appropriate. Ultimately the clients left the job in my hands and demo began. The bathroom had a complete overhaul including a new window, a multi-function shower with a frame-less glass enclosure, cabinetry, granite counter tops, lighting, flooring, and a sliding barn door with light sensor at the closet entry.
The clients were complimentary of my interior design skills and project management. This was the second project I completed for them and they said “I had once again exceeded their expectations”. A big smile came to my face though, when after months of improvements to their Master bath I overheard my clients talking to the photographer, Ken Knoblezada. “You know, of all this, my two favorite things are the robe hook and the automatic closet light”. It’s the little things.
