A bathroom counter top with plants, mirrors, and sinks

Project Profile: From Blah to Spa

The bathroom has surpassed the kitchen as the most remodeled room in homes, a trend we’re certainly seeing at Red House Remodeling. Maybe it’s because we begin and end each day in the bath, or maybe it’s the proliferation of luxurious finishes that make so many people want to go from blah to spa. The homeowners whose bath is featured here were fine with the layout of their master bath, but were ready to upgrade the appearance and materials.

VANITY BEFORE & AFTER: The homeowners chose to swap out their beige-toned vanity and countertop for high contrast with a Diamond White quartz countertop on a bourbon–stained cherry vanity. Upgrades we can’t see but that the homeowners love are full extension drawers (so you can easily find what’s hiding in the back of the drawer), and soft close doors and drawers. These cabinet upgrades are sometimes cost prohibitive in the kitchen, due to the number of doors and drawers, but most of our customers choose to go with them in the bath.

BATH BEFORE & AFTER: In the 90s, when this home was built, it was all about the jet tub. While many homeowners are choosing to get rid of the tub in exchange for a larger shower, these homeowners chose to replace their jet tub with a bubble tub. The difference? In a jet tub, you feel the force of a couple of jets, while in the bubble tub, you feel the relaxing sensation of bubbles bursting all over your skin. Oh, and the bubbles are heated. Pure bliss!

SHOWER BEFORE & AFTER: The existing white shower was very plain, but the new shower has plenty of personality straight-laid Italian tile that matches the tile on the floor and tub deck. The shower is accented with a gorgeous mosaic band around its perimeter and lining the shower niche (shown below).

HOMEOWNER FEEDBACK: “This experience was fantastic.  We have had a couple of pieces of work done on our house, and this was by far the best.  Ben brought his designer in, Jenna, who helped us put together a full design from my initial ideas and thoughts.  They went through and suggested additional touches and helped us find the most cost effective way to get the look we wanted. Overall, the bathroom was finished on time, on budget, and is beautiful.  I would not hesitate to use Red House again.”

    What color is the paint in this bathroom

    • Stephanie Trannel May 25, 2021

      The homeowners did their own painting for the project, so we don’t have that information. They’ve also since moved from the area. We agree, it’s a great color!
