MASTER BATH RENOVATION
Renovations are complicated. The difficulties are amplified when it’s a high traffic area, plumbing is being relocated, and lots of finishes and fixtures are involved. This is probably why bathrooms and kitchens are the spaces I work on most. It’s helpful and reassuring to have guidance when you are investing time and money on a substantial project. The bathroom renovation below was one of those situations.
The client had a good grasp on the functional and style direction she wanted for her master bath, but needed me to pull together and organize the pieces. She had a contractor in the family who would be doing most of the work, but the planning portion of the project had a tight deadline. We worked together very quickly to get her the information she needed to start the project, and oversee that the design intent was carried out.
This entire project was completed through email and phone correspondence, and all of the drawings and design elements were sent electronically. The client and I only met for the first time when I visited to photograph the space. Opting to go the route of E-Design isn’t for everyone or every project. It may not always be the ideal choice, but for some homeowners it’s an affordable option. Most people don’t have the disposable funds to hire a full service designer to completely manage a project from start to finish. E-Design enables the client to get expertise, direction, visuals, and peace of mind that they couldn’t achieve on their own.
As with all projects, we started with inspiration and moved on to floor plans. Because of plumbing and layout constraints, the floor plan didn’t have much wiggle room. We organized it as efficiently as possible, and were able to keep important elements like a double vanity and freestanding tub. Sourcing contemporary budget friendly elements is not the easiest task, but shopping smartly and doing research can pay off. The client was able to incorporate everything she originally wanted into her new bathroom.
When working remotely, the final design is really in the hands of the owner. I provide them with everything they need, but the client make the final decisions and purchases so things can change. It's always nice when they stay true to my original design intent, and for this project I am very pleased with the final space.
