The Lasting Ensuite
A Dream Escape

The kitchen may be the heart of the home, where people gather and life unfolds, but the primary bedroom and ensuite are equally important spaces as they foster restoration and rejuvenation. 

THE CONCEPT

Our customers wish list included a modern and fresh bathroom that didn’t feel cold or impersonal.  A space that resembled a boutique hotel that made you feel like you were running away from life for a little while.

PLANNING & ELEVATIONS

By reassigning the two rooms available square footage, we expanded the footprint of the ensuite to allow for a wet room which now accommodates a large walk-in shower and separate bathtub. This was achieved by integrating the original walk-in closet space into the footprint of the ensuite.

THE BEFORE

The ensuite had its original teal blue toilet, sink and tub and was only slightly larger than a powder room. The primary bedroom's carpet had seen better days and upon removal revealed beautiful original hardwood flooring that transformed the room.

THE DESIGN SELECTIONS 

In keeping with that spa look, we found a beautiful classic tile that we used throughout the room, on the floors as well as the walls of the curbless shower and tub enclosure.  Keeping the materials simple really expands this space and blurs the lines between the different zones.

IN THE DETAILS

The hint of walnut from the custom streamlined vanity gave the bathroom that warmth that the client wanted and introduced another texture to the space.  The warm gold pendants over each sink were also an nontraditional choice but adds a little sparkle to the design.

THE DESIGN

By relocating the walk-in closet and creating a "wet" room in the old closet's location the whole ensuite's flow improved! What was once a tight floorplan with much to be desired, is now a spacious and comfortable layout that accommodates all of the clients wish list items, including all the contemporary finishes and fixtures fit for a spa-like retreat.

STORAGE

The homeowner was happy to relocate their closet contents into new full height cabinetry that now flank either side of the bedroom window. To tie that wall and cabinetry all together, a cabinet bench was installed under the window for additional storage and table top surface.

THE FINALE

It was a pleasure working with customers who really wanted something special and unique for their renovation, and together we created a space that we are sure caused envy amongst all who saw it.  Everyone needs a little escape from the challenges of life once in a while, so imagine having your own spa right at home!  In today’s time, that seems pretty amazing.
