Remodeling a Modern Master Suite

Remodeling a Modern Master Suite

The goal of this couple was to create a unique, sleek, light-filled master suite that better reflected their personalities. It was important to include a larger shower and more closet space while also freeing up the congestion in the bathroom and in a small vestibule outside their bedroom. By relocating the water closet, and both vanities we were able to open up the bathroom within the existing footprint, creating a more spacious environment.

To make the most effective use of the square footage available, two tiny coat closets were removed and the space gained by doing so was captured in “her” closet. The awkward vestibule outside their bedroom acted as a tiny mudroom. With six doors in the tiny space, it didn’t utilize the space efficiently. By removing it, the flow in and out of the bedroom feels more natural and we eliminated five unnecessary doors.

Project Scope:

Custom Redesign


The wall-to-wall carpet was removed from the bedroom and replaced with a wide plank hardwood in a walnut stain to coordinate with the adjoining office, making the spaces flow together seamlessly.

To increase the natural light throughout the master site, plantation shutters were removed and exchanged with motorized black-out roman shades. Charcoal gray windows sashes recede and invite the natural views inside. Bright marble-look porcelain tile reflects more light in the bathroom and adds a classic element to the transitional space. 

Because of the mutual collaboration of bold ideas during the design process, our clients were so much fun to work with. The defining vision for this space was the repetition of differing geometries, fused with a modern bohemian vibe, and everyone involved is absolutely thrilled with the final result!

Wall-mounted faucets and quartz counters that mimic soapstone create a countertop surface that's stylish and easy to maintain.
When paired with geometric wallpaper, brushed brass plumbing and the black-framed sliding glass shower enclosure, the marble-like porcelain tile and traditional basketweave shower floor mosaic have more modern edge.
As part of the redesign, we exchanged two of the bedroom windows with single French doors to allow more light into the bedroom. Adding doors also granted them access to the back porch from their bedroom.
The frosted French doors allow natural light to flood in the newly remodeled master suite without sacrificing privacy.
Relocating the access to her closet from the bathroom to the bedroom granted us the space to relocate the water closet and completely redesign the rest of the bathroom for the most effective use of space.
Selecting a decorative ready-made vanity for the powder room instead of having one custom made meant more funds were able to be allocated toward the master suite remodel – where they mattered the most.

Powder Room Update

Like most clients, this couple had a “while you’re here” list that included sprucing up their powder room. For maximum impact without going over budget, the powder room received a new store-bought vanity with a marble countertop, and a new pendant light fixture to bring it fully up-to-date.

A textured wallpaper with subtle sparkle was selected to dress up the walls and a grasscloth chosen for the ceiling makes the space feel more intimate. Small changes like these can have a dramatic effect without the disruption of a complete overhaul, and there’s always an economy of scale when combining projects.
