Master Bath Retreat

The original master bathroom was narrow and simply needed to be updated.  There was a small bedroom next to the bathroom which my clients wanted to make into a main floor laundry room so we extended the new master bathroom a few feet into the bedroom.  The double vanity is now on the opposite wall of the new laundry room and a corner shower allows for easy access.  The toilet room was moved to the front of the bath and is now a separate space.  The Terrazzo floor tile by Pental is a current design element that also ties to the period of the house.  The Strasser cabinets and new lighting provide an up to date feel for this modern bathroom.  I created a custom paint color for the walls and Champagne on Ice was used on all the ceilings and trim throughout the house.

Zen Guest Bath

The original main floor guest bathroom had a door leading into the adjacent bedroom which took up a lot of valuable space in the small bathroom.  The door was removed so that a full vanity could take up the entire window wall. The shower was enlarged by removing a hallway closet and the pink shower tile was updated with 12” x 24” size tiles in a neutral off white color and installed vertically to create a larger feel.  The wall paint color is Glacier and the ceiling is Champagne on Ice.  The guest bedroom now has modern en-suite bathroom.  


Basement Bathroom Refresh!

The basement guest bathroom is just off the guest bedroom and the original space was dark and cold. We kept the plumbing in the same locations and simply updated the tile, Strasser cabinetry and lighting to create a warm and inviting bathroom. Floor plank tiles were used on the floor to create a rustic feel. The wall paint color is Dove Grey and the ceiling is Champagne on Ice.

Zen Bathroom Remodel by Kathy Banak

My clients two teenage son’s bathroom went through a transformation with the addition of a walk in shower and vanity cabinet instead of a pedestal sink.  The Stasser vanity in a light grey color has plenty of storage for both boy’s with the addition of a medicine mirror and ample lighting with the Quoizel light bar. The Authentic Home Greystone Light paint color definitely enhances the lightness and brings a modern touch to this small bathroom!

Beautiful Spa Like Bath Remodel by Kathy!

My client wanted a tranquil bathroom and her master bath went thru a huge transformation just with the change of the paint color from a vibrant red to the Authentic Home Dove Grey.  The layout wasn’t functional for my client to bathe every night so I change the location of the toilet so that the shower and tub was the focal point upon entering the very small bathroom. The custom Furniture Guild vanity and crystal vanity light bar make this a unique and elegant small bathroom!

Timeless Master Bath

The homeowner wanted the lighter color palette and traditional feel throughout the home continued into their Master bath. The Carrara marble was a timeless selection – perfect for a master bathroom.  The decorative floor mosaic makes a beautiful first impression upon entering the bathroom while the Bombay chest, that was refinished and painted in the Authentic Home Champagne on Ice paint color, was re-fitted to become the vanity.

The beautiful soaking tub was in the home already and the addition of a new Victoria & Albert telephone tub filler and faucet truly makes this a tub area transformed.  The Authentic Home Dove Grey paint color adorns the walls while new custom made roman shades, a vanity bar light and a beveled decorative vanity mirror were added as the finishing touches for the perfectly timeless master bathroom.

Vanity Before and After

Shower Before and After

Master Bath Before and After

Elegant Bathroom

This master bathroom was small, dark and a bit outdated. The client wanted the new design to remain consistent with the light, beachy feel throughout the rest of the home, while also conveying a touch of elegance. Because the client rarely used the bathtub, we replaced it with a large walk-in steam/shower combination, along with a two-sink vanity and heated floors. There was ample room in an adjoining closet, so we moved the sinks to an adjacent wall, which offered additional space for a double shower. The Authentic Home COLOR Paint™ in Glacier was selected for the wall color and a crystal chandelier put the finishing touch on the room, adding a whimsical and elegant feel.

Modern Zen Powder Room

This powder room, original to the home, featured a corner shower, standalone vanity and pink wall paint. The client desired a dramatic change to transform their outdated design to a more modern, earthy feel. We kicked off the remodel with the removal of the shower, since it was rarely used by the client and opened up the space to install a larger vanity. The custom black vanity and complementing black pearl granite countertop grounded the room and provided the much needed weight to house the stone vessel sink. The Authentic Home COLOR Paint™ in Dark Glacier was selected for the wall color. The etched wave-patterned sconces, custom mirror frame and black grass weave roman shade all completed the look of this new powder room.

Serene Master Suite

My clients had recently moved from California and desperately wanted to remodel their 1970’s master bathroom so to take advantage of the magnificent view of south Puget Sound. The large bathroom had a Jacuzzi tub, double sink vanity with small cabinet drawers, an enclosed shower and toilet and a walk-in closet that all simply needed to be updated and redesigned. My clients preferred a shower over a tub so we made the focal point of the room the view and designed a large shower adorned with three shower heads and stone pebbles on the shower floor in front of an 8’ x 8’ window. They also wanted to bring the natural colors of nature into the space so I created a color palette of warm green, tan and beige colors. A new linen cabinet was designed and the vanity countertop is a Seafoam green granite. Other design features include inset medicine cabinets with wall sconces on either side, a new half wall that provides privacy for the toilet area, a large walk in closet with new build in cabinets and the same tile as in the bath area, an exterior retractable window shade and double pocket doors to the master bedroom really make the space feel like a hotel en-suite bathroom.
