The entry hall was an expansive area with a very traditional staircase, iron railing and wood handrail. My client didn't want to change this, but from a design standpoint it felt large, uninteresting and rather cold. Our solution was to bring in new wall covering and a new lighting fixture; making a dramatic impact when you first come in to the home.
The new countertops were in granite, and the backsplash was a copper tile. We also provided new paint and furnishings.
Removal of the jacuzzi bathtub allowed us to put in a brand new spa tub and gave us room to work with to double the size of the shower. The shower now has a comfortable seating area, built in steam unit, and multiple shower heads, including a rain head. In addition to the changes to shower and tub, we provided a large double vanity with sinks, ionized water system for the client's personal use and a separate sit down vanity in the changing area directly off the master closet; giving the entire bathroom a spa-like feel (right photo below).
We hope you enjoy these final photos, and the before and after comparisons. Please feel free to comment or contact us to offer feedback or discuss an design idea of your own.
