Walking on Sand in a Master Bath

In this master bath remodel, we removed the carpet, wallpaper, cultured marble countertops, oak cabinets and shower.

To stay within budget, we kept the existing tub, but framed it with tile for a built-in feel.  We raised the countertops and added a built-in laundry hamper next to the tub.  The client says that the new floor tile make her think she has escaped and is walking along a sandy beach.  We are now working on a window valance and artwork to keep her on vacation when relaxing in her new master bath.

Entire House Remodel

The clients had lived in their home for over twenty years and were ready for an entire house remodel. 

In the kitchen, new alder cabinets, granite countertops, pendant lighting, hardwood flooring and a travertine backsplash make for a beautiful and functional space:

Gorgeous Master Bath Remodel

On this master bath, the husband was attempting to do much of the work himself.  After two years of an inoperable bath, the couple called and asked for design assistance.

The results are dramatic.  We added travertine for warmth and beauty.  New cabinets added much needed storage.  A larger, frameless glass shower expands the room.  Mosaics on the floor, in the shower and on the tub backsplash provide a wow factor. 

Small changes add $100,000 in value!

Our clients asked us to help them update the kitchen on a new home they had just purchased.
