Every home can have its awkward design moments that make you wonder, “Why did they make this choice when they built this house?” Our Barton Valley homeowners had a beautiful home with a few design choices that just needed cleaning up a bit, especially in the primary bathroom and kitchen areas.
The primary bath suffered from an awkward existing layout. In addition to updating the space, our homeowners wanted to make the flow of the bathroom much more cohesive and functional.
Previously, each vanity was located on the diagonal in the two corners of the countertop space. The previous bathroom layout also included an outdated built-in tub and smaller shower area.
These areas were completely demoed out to make room for a new double vanity area (complete with marble countertops & custom cabinetry), and a freestanding tub with pedestal faucet. The shower also underwent a complete makeover, with two shower heads added, plus two new thermostatic valves and diverters. Removing the existing shower walls and increasing the footprint of the shower also greatly transformed this space. We installed new tile work in the shower, including gorgeous Bellagio Calacatta 12 x 12 marble mosaic tile on the floor, as well as new fixtures and hardware. We also added a new tempered glass panel door for the shower with a brand new pull handle.
We installed new wiring for additional lighting and electrical outlets. Brand new can, sconce and pendant lights, as well as new vanity electrical outlets, add both beauty and functionality to the space. Finally, new trim & paint completed this gorgeous primary bath reno!
In the powder bath area, the existing countertop and faucet were demoed before we installed new rough ins for wall mounted plumbing. We love rich tones in this new wall mounted marble vanity!
Another showstopper in this renovation is the gorgeous wet bar area. We installed custom, paint-grade cabinetry, new countertops, all new appliances, an antiqued mirror and custom metal & wood shelving to create a truly stunning wine cabinet and wet bar area.
Last but not least is the heart of the home, the kitchen. We demoed some of the upper cabinetry, and blended new custom cabinetry with existing cabinets sanded/stained to match the new. This technique created a uniform look throughout the renovated kitchen. This kitchen also features a new venetian plaster vent hood with HVAC tied into the existing venting. We installed new kitchen marble countertops, bringing the slab up the wall to serve as a backsplash as well. New marble shelves and shelve supports were installed above the countertops, and a matching marble slab with overhang on two sides was installed on the kitchen island.
Gone are the days when we are left wondering about the design choices in this home. Our homeowners now have a functional, beautiful design for the whole family to enjoy.
