What do you do when you love the house you are in but it just doesn’t fit your needs anymore? Move? What if you could stay and get every one of those wants met? Atlanta Curb Appeal transformed this 20-year-old master bathroom and closet into a modern haven. New finishes, lots of storage space and a huge walk-in closet were the big touches.
The old and outdated bathroom was the original one, built by the homebuilder using building quality materials. (In other words, nothing spectacular, just good enough to originally sell the house.) But Atlanta Curb Appeal was able to demolition it and make some huge changes! ACA moved doors and relocated a toilet, shower, and a small closet to utilize all the available space. We also moved the entry door to a different location so they could have a wall in the master bedroom for a flat-screen TV. ACA also removed the old Jacuzzi garden tub, while it seemed like a great idea 20 years today, they are usually not sanitary and are too large. New freestanding tubs are more practical and take up less space.
Moving the toilet, shower and sinks called for some extensive plumbing work. We also added a his-and-hers shower, with two different showerheads and temperature controls. The countertop is an exotic granite called Exodis. Luckily ACA was able to get the granite at a discounted price from their granite company, so they could stay in budget. The homeowners loved it and it did not cost the homeowner anything over the agreed pricing for the project. Interestingly, the vanity they wanted was quite large. ACA had to cut the counter to fit it up the stairs! We also added additional storage and organization space by building towers above the vanity. The purpose was to help remove everyday clutter, so the counters now look clean and organized.
The new closet was originally a sit-down area with a gas-burning fireplace adjacent to the master bedroom. It was intended to make the master bedroom feel like a suite, but it was rarely used. ACA closed the opening, removed the fireplace, and turned it into a huge closet! It is much bigger than the size they had before and organized to accommodate the homeowners’ storage needs. This includes the husband’s hat rack. He is an avid hat collector and so we designed his side of the closet around the hat rack.
The homeowners absolutely love the final results. The bathroom is now gorgeous, functional and practical. And the wife says she can now store all of her clothes in one closet!
