Master Bathroom Remodel
in Larkspur Neighborhood

Master Bathroom Designed for a Hotel Spa

Built in 2003, this home is prime for a remodel. After visiting a hotel spa, it was clear that the bathroom back home was feeling out-dated. The shower felt small, the jetted tub was obsolete, it was time to update the space. The homeowner’s were excited to start working with the design team on this bathroom remodel. A key feature that was a must on the list was to make the shower feel like a spa. Our design team thinks spa is Luxury – Refined – Bliss and a key way that we could make the shower feel more like a spa was using wall body jets. Another design element that we wanted to use was a bench. After all, what is the point of having an amazing shower if you can’t sit down and enjoy it.

New Design Layout Ideas Ahead

In the original layout the vanities were combined, making it feel more cramped when two adults are trying to use the space at the same time. There was a large whirlpool tub, as we all know takes forever to fill up… so this wasn’t going to make it back into the new floor plan. Another advantage our design team found for this bathroom remodel was that by eliminating the tub, we were able to use the existing plumbing and drain lines, this helped on the costing as well.

For this design we were able to use the existing plumbing and drain lines and we added another sink area where the old shower was. This also created more storage opportunities, as well as, gave the ability to spread out more. This created a much larger feeling than what was actually available. As we didn’t move any walls etc. Another feature that we added was a linen cabinet vs. the old linen closet. Again, thinking more along the lines of luxury and keeping it cohesive, using cabinets that are matching to the vanity is more pleasing to the eye.

 

People want to have an experience when they take a shower. They want to enjoy themselves in a standing spa. But, they don’t have the time to lay in a whirlpool for a half-hour – Lars Christensen

Pricing Guide

Following our pricing guide, this is a master bathroom. It would be considered “Upper Level“. We included cabinet layout modifications from the original floor plan. We introduced new framing needed for the linen closet, the barn door vs. the traditional in-swing entry door and the new window in the shower area. We also used higher end finishes with porcelain tile, semi-frameless glass, and the plumbing. Another key feature that bumps this master bathroom into this category within the plumbing, is the body sprayers. While not a typical amenity for a master bathroom, it is for a spa bathroom. We expanded the shower size, used quartz counters, and updated all of the electrical to meet code.
