Bathroom remodels were the most popular home renovation project of 2020. And we have a great one to show you!
After years of living with the builder-grade master bathroom, this homeowner was so excited to get an updated East Cobb bathroom from ACA, Atlanta Curb Appeal! The upgrade included a roomy shower, a freestanding tub, and a gorgeous picture window.
This East Cobb homeowner learned about ACA from her neighbor across the street. We did a master bathroom improvement there, too. This home was built about 20 years ago, and the bathroom needed a little bit of shine.
First, ACA removed the framing and glass blocks from the previous shower to allow for more space inside. The glass blocks, while interesting 20 years ago, had not aged very well. Amazingly, the new glass shower walls opened up the space. On the walls, what appears to be a beautiful marble finish is actually 12X24 porcelain tiles. It looks stately! The porcelain tile that mimics the marble look is often preferable because it is more durable, affordable, and less slippery.
Next up, we removed the big, clunky Jacuzzi tub, which has fallen out of grace in home design for several reasons. They tend to leak over time and their size requires a huge fill-up of time and water. Plus, those old tubs take up valuable bathroom footage and are difficult to keep clean. Not a lot of benefits for all those drawbacks.
The beautiful window above the tub was custom-made to bring in light and accentuate a lovely view. And we were able to add gorgeous shiplap around the tub. The shiplap was not just a design feature; the wood will actually protect the drywall close to the tub.
Since we had to change up the wiring and make adjustments to the plumbing, ACA replaced the vanities and most of the drywall.
We also added new tile to the floors to match the flow and design of the bathtub and shower.
Even though there was a delay in the specially-ordered custom window, this bathroom remodel only took us six weeks. The homeowner was so pleased with the finished product! “She loved it,” according to Andy Anderson, co-owner of Atlanta Curb Appeal.
