Daisy’s Primary Bath

Project Overview

Out with the old and in with the … rusty? Having worked with us on a previous remodel, Daisy trusted us to take her 1980s New Mark Commons primary bath from drab to glam. She wanted an industrial vibe and a slipper tub with a view out the window, and mostly she wanted a shower that would not leak into the foyer below.

The brick wall creates that warehouse, industrial feel that we carried throughout the bathroom. The vanity was selected to mimic an old warehouse workbench and the lime-washed tile resembles a concrete floor. The simple gooseneck faucets and matte subway tile continue the industrial vibe. Beige paint is the perfect warm neutral to pull it all together.

Unlike Daisy’s original bath, the wall tile is all set on cement board to prevent leaks and ensure a strong hold — no more leaks! Merrick designed and built this industrial bath to last for decades to come. Daisy is so pleased with the results we are already working on designs for her powder room.

Merrick's budgeting and allowances were extremely accurate and included cost saving options that enabled us to come in slightly under budget (which never happens in home renovations!). This was our 5th renovation project over 35 years, the first with Merrick, and the quality of their work and business practices are really exceptional.
