PROBLEMS: The original guest bathroom in the 1970s contemporary home needed updating. It had laminate countertops, inexpensive cabinetry, and vinyl flooring. The tub and tile had started to leak.
CREATIVE SOLUTIONS: Homeowners selected a European-style lavatory sink that extends beyond the countertop and cabinets for the remodeled bathroom. New cabinets could be shallower because one foot was borrowed from the guest bathroom to make the adjacent master shower larger. The new countertop is stone, and the new flooring is tile. Homeowners kept the original tub, and installed a new tile surround that goes from the top of the tub to the ceiling.
TESTIMONIAL: Diane helped us develop plans for remodeling 3 bathrooms in our 1970’s house. We chose her because her familiarity with accessible design. With a goal of “aging in place”, we wanted to expand our main floor powder room to include a curbless shower. In order to add this shower, we needed to reconfigure the whole bathroom as well as an adjoining hallway and our entry foyer.
There were many variables to consider given our existing space, accessibility goals, and our desire to create an aesthetically pleasing room. Diane drew up several options and patiently worked with us through multiple revisions. She was a good listener and incorporated everything we requested when making these revisions. Diane also helped us develop plans for two upstairs bathrooms including an expanded shower and a walk-in closet in the master bathroom.
After working with us through multiple revisions, Diane produced a comprehensive set of drawings showing the detailed space plan along with elevations from every angle and electrical diagrams.
Contractors who have seen the plans said that Diane’s drawings are thorough and they will be able to work from her plans with no difficulty. We can’t wait to see these plans evolve into finished rooms!
