Bettendorf Bathroom Remodel: Master Bath Rejuvenated

bathroom_remodel_bettendorf

Starting 2016 off…in the bathroom? Well, we figured there is no better place to start the year of featured projects than where you start your own day… the bathroom! bow front vanity by Bertch Bath. | VillageHomeStores.com

It’s where you begin and end your day. If your home layout includes a Master Suite, your Master Bath can be a true escape from the rest of the home. What good is it to have a Master Suite with a bathroom that isn’t really functional for your own needs? That was the case for this Bettendorf family.

A big bright space to work with but an original layout that just wasn’t the best for them. For example, if you look above at the before and after of the exterior vanity area just outside of the bathroom you see a sink. That was the original Master Bath. While having a vanity sink in your main master bedroom may work in a Hotel type setting… at home, it wasn’t ideal. The new layout added not just one but two vanity sinks and both now live in the Master Bath itself.

This double bowl vanity configuration includes vanity cabinets from our Bertch Bath line. The transitional style of the “Osage” door can be ordered in a number of woods and finishes. Shown here in the Birch wood and “Brindle” finish is by far it’s most popular combination. The option to remove the toespace and add “feet” to any cabinet can be a great look. It takes a cabinet and gives it a real furniture-style look. You have a choice of 4 wooden and 3 metal feet  within the Bertch line. This configuration is compiled by two sink bases and a drawer stack in the center.

Another look that can really dress up your cabinetry and countertop in a bathroom is to consider a “bow-front” cabinet. Each of the sinkbases used in this Bettendorf Bath were ordered with a bow-front. This subtle curve mimics a chest of drawers or a formal sideboard cabinet. The added curves to the vanity top also helps the long double bowl vanity look less basic and instead stunning as your first view on entering the Bath.

Just outside of the Master Bath entrance is that original location for the vanity sink. The new design has transformed this into a more traditional sink-less vanity area that can be used as a landing space or a hair and makeup station. This exterior vanity has a wood top which makes the cabinet seem more formal and at home in the nook of the Master Bedroom.showerbeforeandafterIf you look at the first Before/After image we shared at the beginning of this post, you can see the original Bath had a small shower in the front corner of the space. On the opposite end of the Bath was a large soaking Jacuzzi tub with a window above. With a tub/shower unit in the Bath just next door to this Master Bath, the new design now includes one large walk-in shower. With the shower-head section of the shower concealed with glass, no door is needed on the opposite end. Just an open entrance. The homeowner did mention that she loves the decision they made to located the shower controls near the entrance to the shower. This makes it easy to turn on the water to warm up and shut down on exiting.

We more and more of this in both new homes and remodels. use that space to give yourself a spacious and serene custom tiled shower. Our crews built a half-wall to divide the bathroom vanity area from the shower. This wall allowed a location for the glass installers to place an Oil-Rubbed Bronze channel to fix the glass into.

On the side of that half-wall that faces the shower user we included a custom tiled niche. This space can now house toiletries within reach of the user and also keep them out of sight. By designing a custom tiled shower in your space in place of a freestanding shower unit, you can customize your experience and get a look perfect for your room.

Inside of that niche is the same glass mosaic tile used as a backsplash above the bathroom vanity top and as an accent strip surrounding the entire shower. Bathrooms are a perfect location to include a mosaic accent because they can truly help tie everything together.

Let’s all give a round of applause to the son of this couple who helped them find the perfect tile! Seriously folks, let your kids participate in the selection process they may really love it!  This mosaic from our Jeffery Court collection perfectly ties the main tile, vanity, fixtures, and paint color together! Hanstone quartz Royal Blanc. | VillageHomeStores.com

The countertop for the double vanity is an Engineered Quartz by Hanstone. The “Royal Blanc” quartz and undermount white oval bowls looks perfectly at home in the space and don’t distract from the rest of the finishes. Oil-Rubbed Bronze fixtures and lighting are a great compliment to the wood vanity.

Bath Remodel: Counter Clutter Contained in Moline Bath

Moline_Bathroom_remodelersThe Moline kitchen we featured on the blog a few weeks back also had a nearby bathroom in the home that was remodeled as well. Village Home Stores offers bathroom vanities available from all of our cabinet lines. We also carry the the full line of Bertch Bath products made not to far from us in Waterloo, IA. Bertch offers bath cabinetry in a number of sizes and layouts and can be ordered in many wood species and finishes.

vanityThis bathroom may only house one small vanity but there are a lot of great ideas within this new space. The first is the vanity itself. The “Hudson” doorstyle is one of the most versatile vanity styles available from the Bertch Bath catalog. This is because it can be finished and styled in so many different ways. The vanity in this space has been ordered in a Alder wood and dark “Brindle” finish has been applied. Decorative feet have also bee added in place of a toekick area to give a more freestanding and furniture look to the cabinet.

bathroom_cabinetBertch_Bath_MolineTo keep that furniture vanity appearance, a framed mirror has been installed above the vanity in place of a tri-view medicine cabinet that may be expected here. A single panel of beveled mirror is framed in the same mitered “Hudson” style as the doors. The single-door medicine cabinet installed on the nearby wall to the left creates a storage space for small items and keeps them off the vanity counter.

The wall outlet for this bath vanity is a very busy place. Many women can relate to the multiple devices like straighteners and blow-driers and curling rods that can clutter up a bathroom countertop. But why are these cords leading down to the floor past the vanity top? Because this bathroom was designed to accommodate all of those hair appliances!

tiled_shower_VillageThe tile in this bathroom is bright and classic. New floor tile has been placed throughout and a brand new custom-tiled tub/shower surround has been installed as well. A strip of glass mosaic tile surrounds the new shower and glass corner shelves were installed for shower items. The new Stainless Steel shower head includes a removable handheld wand and multiple spray options.
