Interior Project

A Stylish Ensuite

This primary bath redesign presented several challenges for the team. The ceiling was more than 1½ inches out of level, so furring strips were installed prior to drywall to compensate. One wall contained unexpected mechanicals, so they furred out the rest of the vanity wall to make the design more intentional. To achieve the elevated look of the arched shower entry, the millwork was custom-made and installed prior to the tile work. The existing HVAC system did not have enough capacity to serve the new area over the garage; by installing a new mini-split system for the expanded closet, they ensured that it would have adequate heating and cooling.

Aesthetics and fixtures were updated throughout. The shower entry was pulled flush with the existing wall, adding approximately six square feet to the shower and allowing room for a floating shower bench. A water closet was added for privacy. The double vanity features soft-close drawers with outlets that hide hot tools. The 4-inch splash protects water from affecting the custom-built millwork wrapping the beveled mirrors. A new makeup vanity was added, featuring overhead and sconce lighting and two drawer stacks dedicated to makeup storage. Several other storage solutions were added to the bathroom, including a full-height closed storage cabinet with an integrated laundry hamper, a shower niche and a custom bookcase at the end of the freestanding tub. Finally, red oak hardwood flooring brought warmth to the room.
