Mountain Top Spa

Mountain Top Spa

The intention behind this design was to emulate an upscale spa ensuite, that melded with the sleeping space.

More than just a primary bathroom, the owners wanted this spa bath to be an extension of the primary bedroom.

In the original layout, barn doors separated the bed and bath, exposing the stool and putting it directly in the sight line of the bed. Adding french doors was the solution. When they are open they hide the water closet area.

The next issue was storage. Taking up only 100 sq. feet, it was important to take every opportunity to create storage space while maintaining an open feel. A T-shaped wall between the water closet and shower was the design solution and provides shelving on three sides.

Large format ( 23” x 48” ) travertine tile on the floor actually makes the space seem larger and also eliminates grout lines, making it easier to clean.

Custom vanity, and linen storage, which includes a drop down laundry hamper, were built out of hickory to provide another organic element. Clean edged, neutral Rookwood tile in the shower, slim profile windows by Pella, an integrated, concrete vanity/sink and radius finish on the corners of walls and windows add to the quietude that the owners were seeking.

By combining the elements of wood, concrete, tile, stones and light, the perfect sanctuary was achieved.

West Asheville Bungalow Bath Addition

This project was focused on eeking out space for another bathroom for this growing family.  The three bedroom, Craftsman bungalow was originally built with only one bathroom, which is typical for the era.

The challenge was to find space without compromising the existing storage in the home.  It was achieved by claiming the closet areas between two bedrooms, increasing the original 29″ depth and expanding into the larger of the two bedrooms.

The result was a compact, yet efficient bathroom. Classic finishes are respectful of the vernacular and time period of the home.

Spa Bath in Arden

Spa Bathroom in Arden

This 80’s, builder grade bathroom had seen its best days. 

Dated, oak cabinets, and a non-functioning, corner, Jacuzzi tub needed to go.  The toilet area, was adjacent to the shower but the new layout reconfigured the space by creating a water closet where the original shower was, and flanking custom His and Her vanities next to a new, corner shower.  A band of contrasting clay brick, sets off the subway tile in the shower.

His vanity is 42″ high to accommodate the client’s tall stature. 

A beautiful cast iron, claw foot tub now sits next to the window where the old Jacuzzi used to be. 

The old vinyl flooring has been replaced with a lovely octagon tile with gray keystones to evoke the Victorian feeling that the clients wanted.  Sherwin Williams Topsail paint gives the new bathroom a serene feeling. 

Jewel Box Powder Room

With a few special treatments, it’s easy to transform a boring powder room into a little jewel box of a space.  New vanity, crisp lighting fixtures, a little attention to the ceiling and a statement wall covering make this little powder room an unexpected treasure.

Guest Bathroom Makeover in East Asheville

This 80’s bathroom was in dire need of an update. Ample space that wasn’t being utilized in the room, allowed for an easy reconfiguration.

Adding a separate shower still allowed room for storage on both sides of the room, and adding a wall next to the toilet eliminated full exposure for the user.

Replacing the vinyl flooring with porcelain tile, swapping out the builder grade vanity with a custom vanity and implementing a neutral color palate makes this new bathroom feel much more inviting.

Heavy knotty pine cabinets, black counter tops and a clunky work triangle made this kitchen feel cramped and gloomy.

With a few changes to the appliance arrangement and contemporary, bright finishes, this kitchen took on a whole new appearance and work flow.

The sink was relocated from the island to under a new, larger window, and the refrigerator was moved to the other side of the room.

Herringbone marble backsplash, quartz counter tops and contrasting color island made this kitchen go from stodgy to sharp!

Giving this 80’s spec house a facelift was easily done by upgrading and updating drab finishes and lighting.

Tweaking the layout of the kitchen area, to create an open floor plan, was accomplished by removing a wall between the dining and kitchen area.

The original layout encompassed the kitchen, powder room and master bedroom entry, which was awkward from a privacy standpoint. A wall was added between the spaces creating a hallway on one side and a pantry area on the kitchen side.

The new layout provides open site lines into the dining and living room which allows for easy entertaining.

Shaker style cabinets painted Sherwin Williams Modern Gray keep the kitchen crisp without being sterile. Spectrum Quartz- Stellar, countertops, simple, glass pendants, and new flooring totally transform this kitchen.

An Artist’s Cottage

An Artists Cottage

This tiny, kitchen proves that you can fit everything that you need into 100 square feet. By making some changes to the appliance layout, this kitchen went from cramped and clunky, to cozy and efficient.

Bright, white, shaker style cabinets, a farmhouse sink set in a furniture base cabinet and butcher block counter tops impart a cottage feeling. The warm palette is also the perfect, neutral backdrop for the owners curated collection of art and assembled treasures.

Because of the age of the cottage, none of the floors were level so the base cabinets were built without toe kicks allowing the installer to customize them on site making sure that everything was level upon completion.

The original, apartment sized appliances were utilized to maximize the space while

Glass, doors and open shelving were integrated into the design to further that feeling of spaciousness. New recessed lighting was part of the plan to brighten up the original, dark room and a clear, vintage glass pendant over the relocated sink was resourced to help visually open the space.

The original wall paneling, some of which was hidden behind compressed board and stamped to look like stone, was retained and painted bright white. The recessed spice rack over the sink was also preserved. Dreamwalls, painted glass was used for the backsplash behind the stove, for efficient cleaning and to add a contemporary element to the otherwise vintage style kitchen.

Vintage Bathroom Remodel

An antique door, fitted with wire mesh glass, to mimic an old school house door, was the perfect entrance into this primary bath that is buffered by a closet and laundry area. 

A wall mounted Kohler sink and antique shower trim kit add to the vintage feel while the combo shower / tub area nods to a more contemporary aesthetic

A custom built in at the end of the tub provides landing space for bathing essentials along with closed storage for bathroom necessities.  Original pine floors combine with vintage penny tiles, to warm the space.
