A Relaxing Retreat

KCBR’s clients envisioned a stunning, elegant sanctuary to unwind in after a long day. Whether it was working with various flooring materials or the location-specific items their clients requested, the team devised clever solutions to create the bathroom of their clients’ dreams. During construction, KCBR discovered that the existing mortar bed had to be removed, so they needed a solution that provided a uniform floor level. To achieve this, their team framed the bathroom flooring to match the bedroom and closet. Another obstacle was the freestanding, air-jetted chromatherapy and aromatherapy bathtub. Ensuring the tub was powered and running properly relied on finding the right location to house the mechanical components. The original plans placed the tub’s mechanics too far away. Therefore, to avoid needing an extension hose and affecting the tub’s performance, they moved the motor and pump to a more suitable location.

Their clients’ specific storage needs required innovation, too. The linen cabinet’s prominent placement was also a potential focal point. So, to create the storage their clients needed and to maintain the aesthetic of the space, they created a custom built-in look for the cabinet by using creative carpentry and added tinted bronze mirrors to bring moodiness to the space.
