Beavercreek Master Bathroom/Bedroom, Hall Bath and Upstairs Project – Cabinets and Countertops

Cabinets and the beautiful granite countertops have been installed in both the master bathroom and hall bathroom.  Now we can really start to see these two rooms taking shape.  Finish details are still yet to be completed, but cabinets and countertops make such a huge difference.

Take a look at the tile detail around the dub deck.  It’s not finished yet and still needs grout, but you can start to see the accent tile take form.  Brian uses spacers and pieces of cardboard to make sure the tile doesn’t sag and keeps a level line.  After the tile around the tub deck is finished, the tub will be installed.

 

Cabinet doors and drawers are one of the last items to be installed on a project like this. Finish plumbing also still has to be done and having the cabinets opens like this helps Brian to connect the pipes from the wall to the sink and faucet.

The Medura Gold granite color in the master bathroom is the same gorgeous color the client chose for their kitchen.  These close up shots give you an idea of the movement in this particular granite, but a picture just doesn’t do the product justice.

The hall bathroom granite is called Beige and has a biscuit color sink bowl.  It blends beautifully with the tile.  Brian is hoping to have the hall bath completely finished and functional for our clients so they can use it while the master is getting the finishing touches.

          

Next week, we’ll have more detail on the finish plumbing and electrical fixtures.  Also, don’t forget about the new carpet to be installed as well as the built-in cabinets in the master bedroom.  This project still has a ways to go, but will be gorgeous when it’s done!

Beavercreek Master Bathroom/Bedroom, Hall Bath and Upstairs Project Updates

This Beavercreek project has been moving along quite well over the last couple weeks.  The major changes both bathrooms have seen is tile installation.  Tile is easily applied right over top of the Wedi System with thin set as the bonding agent.  The client has chosen to use Daltile Salerno 2″ x 2″ Mosaics in the color Marrone Chiaro on the floor of the shower as well as the step on the tub deck.

                    

The floor of the master bathroom is the same color but 18″ x 18″ tiles are used instead.  There are two great reasons for putting large tile on the floor.  The first reason is fewer grout lines.  Most people want the grout lines to disappear right into the tile instead of standing out.

The second reason is larger tiles visually make a space feel larger. Here is a closer look at the beautiful tile chosen by the clients.

Another really cool feature of this master bathroom is hidden underneath the tile floor.  A company called Warmly Yours specializes in electric floor heating systems which allows for a more enjoyable bathroom experience.  This system is installed in the thin set right beneath the tile.  It operates on a timer, so it is only on during the times the space is used the most.  A heated floor makes you feel as though you’re in a luxury hotel and is one of the unique elements of this bathroom.

Brian has created a “Low-Threshold” shower for our clients.  This means there will be no curb, wall or any type of barrier between the shower floor and bathroom floor.  Right now, only the Wedi board is visible between the 2″ x 2″ shower tiles and the 18″ x 18″ bathroom tiles, but he’ll install a piece of granite that will match the countertops to distinguish between the two areas.  This type of shower installation provides easy entry, confidence and safety.

The hall bathroom has progressed a little more quickly than the master because it’s a much small space.  Brian has built a niche into the wall for shampoo bottles and soap.  The niche is a prefabricated, water proof product that is inserted into the wall between the studs and then tiled.  The accent tile you are seeing is a Daltile Tumbled Natural Stone accent strip using Antalya Dark, Sienna Gold, and Mediterranean Gold colors.

               

The next phase is cabinet and countertop installation.  It’s amazing how these projects have changed so dramatically over such a short period of time.  We’re really excited to see how they turn out!

Beavercreek Master Bathroom/Bedroom, Hall Bath and Upstairs Project

The master bathroom, master bedroom, and hall bath is now the 3rd project Remodeling Designs will have completed for these particular clients.  Previously we have remodeled their entire kitchen and hall bathroom, as well as their deck.  As always, it is an absolute pleasure working with them and we’re very excited to showcase the progress of their project.

When we first met with these clients, the goal for the master bedroom and bathroom was to create a larger shower, update finishes and fixtures, and allow for more clothing storage in their bedroom.  They plan on staying in this home and wanted to make the space exactly the way they wanted it to fit their needs.  Here’s a look at the before pictures to get a good idea of what is taking place.

In the hall bathroom, the priority was really to make updates to the standard size room.  There was no real design or layout change but a new vanity, countertop, plumbing fixtures, flooring, tile in the tub area, and light fixtures were all on the list of changes to be made.  The before picture is below.

While we were upstairs making major changes to the bathrooms and master bedroom, the client also decided to take this opportunity to install new carpet in the entire second floor as well as a new coat of paint.  The carpet in the hallway and three other bedrooms has not been removed yet, but will be just before paint is applied to the walls and new carpet is installed.  What a huge difference this will make in tying the whole upstairs together!

Here is the progress our Project Manager, Brian, has made so far! He has completely gutted the master bathroom, removing half of the wall in between the tub and shower to open things up visually.  He has also removed the wall and dead space that was to the left of the shower in the “before pictures”.  Rough plumbing for the new shower location and new sinks has been completed.  All rough electric and drywall repair has been done also.  Brian has framed the new walls of the shower and the tub deck with the Wedi System.  The Wedi System is a completely water tight, mold proof system made of a light-weight, concrete board/Styrofoam type material.  It’s a fabulous product that is easy to install and has a full system warranty.  Now that we’ve reached this point, Brian is ready to start paint and tile work!

The hall bathroom has made much of the same progress as the master. All the demolition, rough plumbing and electric, drywall, and Wedi have been completed.  Paint and tile will be next.

The master bedroom has been cleared out and carpet removed.  Once the new carpet is installed cabinets will be added, which will make a dramatic change to the functionality of this large bedroom.

So far, Brian has done a great job to keep this project on schedule and moving smoothly.  We’re excited to see how the space changes along the way and, of course, the final product. Check back to see the project moving forward!
