Bathroom Renovation

One of the many projects I worked on this past summer was a bathroom renovation for  a summer home on Martha’s Vineyard. The project consisted of tearing down a couple of walls, adding a built-in fully tiled shower with seat and shelf, a custom designed and built double vanity by my fiance, and a total rework of the existing space. It was a great project to work on because it drastically improved the space both design-wise and for the users.

I begin every project by collecting inspirational images for the clients to look through and gauge their needs, wants, design style, comfort level, and budget. This gives me an initial understanding of my client. I then create various space plan options/floor plans to see how the space works best. Once the client approves of a plan I do multiple renderings from a couple of perspectives to show the space in 3-D with furniture, lighting, materials, and styles. This is a wonderful way for the client to really get a sense of their space and what it actually will look like in the end. Then the construction begins…

Below are  “before and after” images and the renderings.

I used the existing door and had it turned into a built-in pocket door to create more usable space.

    Gorgeous! You are both so talented. How handy to be marrying a carpenter!

    • Thanks Elena! The funny thing is Derek is actually a mechanical design engineer… this is the first cabinet he’s ever built! Pretty impressive, huh?!!
