Kensington, MD , Bathroom Remodel - $45,000
Sometimes your only alone time is spent in the bathroom. With four children, Margret needed a bath oasis. Merrick’s design goal was to create a spa experience for Margaret and her husband.
Overall the bathroom was not in bad shape so to stay on budget the existing vanity and toilet remained. However, with little time to sit and soak, we removed the large whirlpool tub and in its place created a large shower with room to relax. With body sprays, a rain shower head and a handheld shower, water flows in multiple patterns and places. Two bench seats allow enjoyment of the water’s spray while steam swirls around you.
Zen touches like the pebble shower floor massage weary feet and provide a non-slip surface for the floor and benchtop. We added matchstick glass accents flow on rounded surfaces to add a subtle but decorative contrast. The oversized wall tile was installed vertically to give the illusion of a taller ceiling. Finally, blue pearl granite adds elegance to the existing white vanity, and chrome fixtures keep things light and bright. There’s nothing like going to the spa in your own home at the end of a busy day.
Margret and Rob were able to get their bath oasis while being piratical about their budget. They were so pleased with the end result they also used Merrick for a complete Kitchen remodel, see the details here.
