Bathroom Update Wins Award


Nate Coombs and his team won the DreamMaker Bath and Kitchen’s Franchisee of the Year award for the redesign of an outdated master suite. The owners wanted a modern, elegant look without using too much tile.

The homeowner wasn’t happy with the following:

–       White tile

–       Gold (polished brass) fixtures

–       Empty wall between the vanity and tub deck

–       Inadequate storage space

–       Floor tile that did not flow from the vanity/tub room into the shower, toilet room and closet

–       Too much grout on the tub deck and shower tile

–       Small, enclosed shower with too much glass and a metal frame (below)


Improvements included:

–       Installed stone-simulated porcelain floor tile in warm, earth tones that flows into all spaces

–       Modified the tub deck and updated it with marble slabs with no grout lines and a stone/glass mosaic splash (below)


–       Added cabinetry – painted white maple – for more storage and a new makeup area

–       Installed marble vanity tops

–       Updated plumbing fixtures

–       Enlarged the shower so it is now a walk-in with light marble slabs, a glass/stone mosaic and a frameless piece of glass to allow light in (below)
