Dreambuilder Custom Homes is pleased to announce the completion of Dreambuilder Nine: a master bath remodel transformation for the Hughes family in Jacksonville, FL.
The original bath was full of low-grade finishes such as vinyl floors, oak cabinets and laminate countertops. Additionally, the configuration of the water closet, linen closet and shower entrance was awkward for the homeowners. Additionally, the Hughes wanted to update their bathroom with contemporary finishes to create a serene, spa-like environment.
“Since we have no experience in renovations or remodels, we were looking for someone who had the expertise and willingness to guide us through the entire process,” said Karen Hughes. “Shawn assisted us in every stage – from designing our space, to selecting materials, to the final construction and realization of our vision.”
And the results are indeed impressive. Removing the linen closet and redesigning the water closet enabled the shower to double in size and allowed for a trendy walk-around entrance rather than a door. A second shower head, bench seating and built-in niches create a roomy, functional shower. Modern tile, set in a brick formation, lends subtle beauty. And the finishing touch — coordinating pebble tile on the floor.
Linen storage was not lost, however. A center cabinet column and set of drawers, mounted on top of the vanity top, allows for ample storage of towels and toiletries. Having seen this design in the master bath of Dreambuilder Four, Karen knew she wanted to recreate this look.
High-end fixtures from Kohler and Moen create a streamlined, contemporary look. The Kohler Archer soaking tub sits in the newly built and tiled tub deck and complements the Archer vanity sinks. Stylish Moen Icon faucets crown the new space.
Sleek cabinetry with brushed nickel hardware and granite countertops add to the feeling of luxury. New mirrors, light fixtures and paint complete the look.
“The end result is a master bathroom that is well-constructed, makes good use of our space and is beautiful,” said Karen. “Shawn was timely and professional in all our interactions and we would consider him and the Dreambuilder team for any future projects.”
Before and after pictures of the project can be found in Dreambuilder’s Dream Home Gallery.
