  • Master Bathroom with a View, We recently (finally) renovated / remodeled our master bathroom that had been sitting gutted since the day we bought our house - over 3 1/2 years ago.  We finally were able to borrow the lump sum needed to do this massive makeover.  The issue with the original bathroom - other than the fact that it was super dated (green wallpaper) and yucky, was that the main drain was cracked and water was leaking to the floor below - into the walls and down to the floor.  This is a second story bathroom and below it is the kitchen and dining room.  Sadly the previous tenant was using the bathroom even with the broken drain pipes which had caused mold in the walls which we had to get professionally cleaned!  Anyway, all that's in the past now and we have a fabulous modern (but comfortable) master bathroom that feels like an expensive hotel / spa and it even has a view of the bay and golden gate bridge!

feel free to follow our blog for the rest of our adventures in home makeover here - http://fixerwithaview.wordpress.com - we even have a blog section about how we almost got onto HGTV's curb appeal - shot the reveal and everything before our project was cancelled., Bathrooms Design

  • San Francisco Art Deco 1939 Bath Remodel, The original 1939 bath had vintage charm but nothing worked.The only storage was a tiny medicine cabinet. I designed the new bath to honor the pre-war modernist style of my house but with the lastest bath luxuries:  heated floor rain shower and Kohler Hatbox toilet. The tile goes all the way to the ceiling. Classic white subway tile on the straight walls and 1" recycled glass bottle mosaic tile on the curved wall bath seat and floor., Bathrooms Design

  • Luxe Vintage 1920's Bathroom, I recently finished remodeling my 1920's bathroom back into a vintage style classic to that era.  Common attributes of a depression-era bathroom include white hexagon floor tile, subway tile wainscoting, and a clawfoot tub.  The oversized, rain-shower showerhead is a modern touch.  

I purchased the hanging sink at an architectural plumbing salvage store in Northern California.  Another interesting purchase is the window, which was a salesman sample from the 20’s or 30’s that I found at another architectural salvage store here in Portland.  It has a plaque stating “patent pending” as it has a unique feature – when the bottom pane is raised, the top pain lowers simultaneously, letting fresh air in from above and below.  Discovering an authentic, vintage window that had never been installed in a house was a unique find! 

Another vintage detail is the porcelain light fixtures, all matching, that I had pieced together through antique stores and e-bay.  One light fixture is a single sconce that has a low wattage bulb to use as a night light when needed or as subtle light when taking a relaxing bath.  There is also a matching two-light sconce above the medicine cabinet and a three-light ceiling fixture, which illuminates when the fan is turned on. 

I had such a great time remodeling this bathroom and am very pleased with the outcome.  In the 1920’s, it was common to have only one bathroom in a house, and a small one at that, so every inch of space needs to be designed well and functional.  I think this remodel captures a vintage elegance with some modern detail thrown in for a little taste of luxury!  I hope you like it!

  • My Amazing Master Bath / Dressing Room Reno, I designed and general contracted my upscale master bath / dressing room (12'x16') remodel in a 30 yr old contemporary home. I spent almost 2 years designing and planning it – I bought EVERYTHING online, including a metric ton of porcelain tile (FastFloors.com), and saved $$$$. I did all of the demolition myself. We also replaced the outside walls’ old insulation with new, higher rated insulation and insulated the interior walls and ceiling for sound proofing.

The only thing I didn't move was the toilet (Toto). The old bath had a double vanity and the standard 5' tub with a shower head. Now we have a 60"x42' jetted tub (SaniJet) and a separate 42"x42" shower. Accessibility for my tall husband who uses a wheelchair drove a lot of the design: wall hung double sinks (Sonia P05), pivoting mirrors (Motiv), a vanity (Ikea) on wheels, grab bars, and the shower has custom fold-down teak bench (teakworks4u.com) and an exposed shower pipe (Hansgrohe) that combines both a 10" rain shower head and a hand shower. We also replaced the room’s hard-to-open pocket door with a "barn door" style sliding door with a large, easy to grab handle. I also added a heated towel rack which is a wonderful treat in the morning after a shower.

The 3 old clothes closets had a lot of unusable space. We installed built-in wardrobes (Ikea) customized with drawers, pants and shoe racks, and a corner unit so all of the space is now usable giving us twice as much usable clothes and storage space. The old space also had a closet for the electric hot water tank. We replaced it with a gas tankless water heater (Noritz) that's "hidden" in one of the wardrobe cabinets. Having it so close to the sinks and shower gives us almost instant hot water plus the water tastes a lot better. 

The tiles (Pietra by Casa Dulce Casa) are 24"x24" with a contrasting strip of 4"x24". Even though I was buy it online (at 30% of list), I only considered the tile that was available locally so I could see the actual tile and colors before buying it. The shower, tub cabinet, sinks, and wall alcoves were designed to align with the tile. Since I knew that the tile layout and installation was critical to overall design of the room, I made sure that I hired an experienced artisan who understood the design and could install the tile to my specs. My tiler said it was different from anything he had ever done before but he did an incredible job!

I was also incredibly fortunate to find an excellent contractor through AngiesList. He helped me get expert subs - including my tiler. Watching them all work was like having HGTV live in bathroom. The project was a little more complicated than a standard master bath renovation as we also had gas lines run for the water heater and also up to our kitchen where we switched from an electric to new a dual-fuel range (GE Café). (We also had new plumbing run up to the kitchen and added a pot filler faucet over the range.) It took 3 months once the framers started. 

Attention to detail in both the design and construction meant no rework or added expenses. I hope you love it and much as we do. - Amy, Bathrooms Design

  • My first renovation!, Small double sink bathroom in a 1995 condo with bath/shower combo.  

First off let me say that I realize my design choices are not for everyone - My tile is very bold, and many features i've picked are very modern and european, however I live near an industrial area in a neighborhood that has a lot of artists and film industry types, so I'm not too concerned about the resaleability in the future.  I am an entertainer and costume designer and the clean lines and almost steampunk color scheme suits me to a T!

I wanted to keep the double sink, but to have more usable counter space, and definitely wanted a more contemporary look.  

My tile is 16" x 24" Antares Toffee - huge, industrial looking, and gorgeous!  

Accent tile is "Icestix - Tundra" - a hand made glass tile which is a random mosaic of the same color in three finishes - back painted, matte, and iridescent.  

I put in a soaker tub because I love spending hours reading in the bath and the original builder tub was really uncomfortable.  

All told this reno came to around $5000, which I think is pretty darned good for the radical transformation!

The vanity is a solid wood floating vanity with enough space underneath for baskets, that has two drawers and two cupboards - more actual usable space than the floor mounted one I ripped out.  The undermount sinks make the counter much more usable, and I LOVE the chrome square angled faucets that match the square rainshower in the tub.  

The mirror and light fixture will be installed soon, and am just deciding between splurging on a euro-style frameless glass bath shield or a curved shower curtain rod mounted up really high (I'll make a custom shower curtain to go with it.  thinking a sheer plum organdy to pick up the color in the iridescent accent tiles)

*update* - went to the fabric store yesterday and found the perfect plum organdy with a bit of sheen to make a shower curtain out of.  Just need to wait to get a quote from a glass guy and decide!

  • Master Spa with 10 Jet Whirlpool Tub and Rainshower, The modest 17' 6" X 12' 6" MASTER BEDROOM has a decorative corner inset located next to a window with a dimmer light and an electronic fireplace to create a soft focal point in the evenings.  A recliner sits across from the relaxing corner for reading enjoyment.  The MASTER BATHROOM is a 16' 4" X 6' space that used to be a hollywood bath arrangement i.e. 2 water closets and 2 sinks on either side of one bathtub.  We added a second full bathroom first to the other side of the hallway and then we remodeled this luxury master bath.  The old bath setup and petitions were completely removed and all the plumbing, petitions, electrical, tiling, and finishes were redesigned and installed by us.  The shower features two shower heads and the tub has its own spray nozzle on a hose (great for washing your hair).  The tub is jetted and has a TV to watch while relaxing in the tub.  The ceiling fan helps keep it comfortable while the heat is up in the jetted tub.  The lighting and fan swtiches are all reachable from the shower enclosure and available to adjust the settings according to the mood wanted.  The dual mirrors over the his and her sinks are also mirrored medicine cabinets inset into the walls.  On the ceiling is a vent and heater combination which helps keep it warm in the bathroom and keeps the mirrors from foggin up during hot showers.  We just love it., Bathrooms Design
