Kathy & Glenn’s Primary Bath

Project Overview

Ready to transform the primary bathroom in their Kensington home, Kathy and Glenn, already valued Merrick clients, called us once again. They wanted a space that would accommodate their needs (including a remodel of the closet space) and feel relaxing, like a beautiful day at the beach.

For Kathy and Glenn, the beach meant cool blues and warm grays, so we used Carrara marble throughout and paired it with a gray porcelain tile to emulate a rocky shore. We partnered with Candlelight Cabinetry to create a maple vanity, stained “Driftwood.” How perfect!

To improve the bathroom’s functionality, we did away with a rarely used large soaker tub and expanded into an adjacent closet to add a spacious shower. The toilet hides behind a privacy wall. And luxuries like a microwave and flat-screen TV make the space more fun!

Their clothing, which previously had been divided up between three closets and multiple bureaus, would now be in one space. We turned a small study next to the bath into a large walk-in closet with custom shelving from Real Closets.

Kathy, Glenn, their son, and his 110-lb puppy survived the realities of living through the construction process, and they love the finished space!

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.
