We recently completed a whole-house renovation in Hillsborough for a great client! The home needed updates to the master bathroom as well as the hall bathroom, and a little TLC in the kitchen. As you will see, we coordinated the design in the three separate spaces. The finished product really made a big difference throughout the whole house.
The old master bathroom in this house combined the early 2000s look of brass finishes, brown tile, and rusty red paint. The demo work started off with eliminating the old tub and shower. This was replaced with a new corner shower, which meant we needed to re-frame the walls and re-route much of the plumbing. For the spot where the old shower was, we installed functional and modern floating shelves.
The highlight of the new bathroom remodel is definitely the shower. Some of the custom upgrades included a frameless glass enclosure, a custom niche below the window, and 6×16 beveled subway tile. The shower also called for a solid quartz saddle around the bottom of the windows which matched the shower curb, the flat step between the floor and shower. We installed a porcelain mosaic tile in the niche and floor that really pops.
The master bathroom flooring is now LVP (luxury vinyl plank), which is a great product with tons of durability and design options. We installed a new double vanity with a quartz countertop and kept the existing mirror but made some minor bracket updates. The master bathroom was finished off with new trim and a fresh coat of paint.
Next up in the whole house renovation in Hillsborough was the hall bathroom. This bathroom was on the same floor as the master, so it was important the design was consistent between the two. We started off by completely demoing the whole space. We then replaced all the plumbing, including the toilet and all the fixtures. For the bathtub, we brought in a new alcove soaker tub and did a subway tile surround with a niche. We installed floating shelves over the toilet that are great for displaying items and storage.
The homeowners wanted to keep the same mirror, but again we updated some brackets. We are happy to do these minor touches since they often save money; in this case, they did not have to buy a new mirror. You will notice the paint color, vanity, subway tile, and fixtures are consistent with the master bathroom.
The last stop in the house was to give the kitchen some TLC with a new tile backsplash and undercabinet lighting. We chose a 3”x6” grey subway tile and laid it out in an on-trend herringbone pattern. Often, there may be one area of a house that needs just a few small upgrades. We are happy to do these side projects as an add-on to a bigger project because the homeowners will be happier with the overall project.
