2016 Best Bathroom Renovation 35K and over

 

 

Goal

Empty-nest couple moving to dated 2-bed-2-bath waterfront condo wants:

  • Simple open sophistication.
  • More-functional kitchen and master-suite.
  • Better ventilation and lighting.
  • Full exploitation of views.
  • Layout for aging-in-place.

Result

Creative design-details

  • Non-figure-book-match Anigre-veneer floor-to-ceiling kitchen-wall cabinets and underlit-floating bathroom cabinets.
  • Exotic-marble waterfall-edge island.
  • Pop-up downdraft and electrical preserve sightlines.
  • Proportional Anigre ceiling-drop with view-preserving recessed task-lighting.
  • LED-lit coffers around rooms allow aimable-dimmable lights without lowering ceiling and hiding  power blinds.
  • Dramatic three-sided gas-fireplace custom-made with CSA-approval for condo-limited 4-inch B-vent.  
  • Tile-flooring matched on decks for indoor-outdoor connection, with elegant inlay and new lighting.
  • New window-frame millwork.
  • Remote-access lighting and zone-control thermostat.

Master-Ensuite

  • custom-fabricated stainless-shower-tower and curved quartz tiling highlighting ( reviving ) exciting curved glass-block wall.
  • Accent-lit cabinet doubled storage, Quartz shelve match counters and radius-scribed shower-sill.
  • Large-marble tiles match small-tile slip-resistant shower-floor.

Biggest challenge:  Concrete condo limitations meant no access above or below. Relocated plumbing, electrical, and bath fixtures including curbless shower within creative cross-strapped ceilings and coffers, and using x-ray imaging for floors runs without damaging rebar.
