1920’s Guest Bathroom for New Construction

What started out as a “simple” kitchen remodel on a 1920’s bungalow in downtown Durham area, turned into a whole house new construction build. What every homeowner fears, the worst case scenario, was unfolding right before our eyes. The design process went off without a hitch. We designed the new kitchen remodel, added a powder bath to the first floor, and even collaborated with our architect on adding a second story for the growing family.

For the second story it included 2 bedrooms, a playroom, and a shared full guest bathroom. All throughout the design process we decided that we wanted to maintain the charm and character that an older home had. We were able to recreate this feeling by using products that mimic historical homes. Using items such as, 2″ mini hex floor tiles, subway tiles around the tub and using old turn cross knobs on the faucet fixtures.
