Master Bath: Beyond upgrading the dated interior, some of the client’s biggest goals for this potential-filled 386 square feet of Master Bathroom space was to create better traffic flow, more shower space and additional closet storage. All existing interior was completely demolished at the start the of this renovation. Defining characteristics of this Design-Build renovation are custom floating vanities with MTI Baths Boutique Collection vanity tops and Integrated sinks, Isenburg matte black wall mounted faucets, B&F Marble Systems Marmara Avenza Light & Dolomite tile accent wall, dimmable backlit mirrors by IB Mirror, Sonneman LED wall sconces, and recessed custom shelving with LED backlighting. A custom zero entry tile shower was designed utilizing the Wet Style Feel Collection matte black shower base, B&F Elegance 24” x 48” Statuario matte porcelain tile walls and bench, and Isenburg matte black shower fixtures and body sprays. Flooring throughout the bathroom was B&F Elegance 24” x 48” Nero Marquina matte porcelain tile. Lighting for this renovation came via a Klus wall integrated LED system. As for bathing, a Barclay freestanding tub with Isenburg matte black tub filler was installed. No detail was overlooked during this Master Bathroom transformation from an outdated area to a delightful new space that thrilled the homeowners.
Wine Cellar: The client’s vision for this hidden space, accessed via a secret passageway, was to incorporate elements of modern design to create a wine cellar of unequaled flair. “Before” photos reveal a dark, unrefined basement area prior to undergoing extreme transformation.
The effort to convert the original wine cellar into a finished space began with the installation of a waterproofing system. Relocation of existing wiring, plumbing, and HVAC ducting followed, to create the necessary headroom for a finished ceiling. The most eye-catching aspect of this renovation is the lighting. Light sources include Klus wall and ceiling integrated LED strip lighting, LED backlighting for the wine rack, LED up lighting at custom floating shelves, and LED stair riser lighting. The homeowner’s inspiration for the ceiling was to create a lighting arrangement that appeared as “pick-up sticks” that were randomly dropped.
A Silver Cloud leathered granite countertop with a mitered waterfall edge sits atop custom-built cabinetry, and is complemented by in-countertop pop-up receptacles, an Elkay quartz sink, and an Isenburg matte black faucet. Under the counter is a beverage cooler and an ice maker. The flooring consists of B&F Elegance 24” x 48” Nero Marquina matte porcelain tile, along with an accent strip of polished black pebbles below the sleek wine rack from STACT.
