Sprucewood – A Dingy, Motel 6-Caliber Bathroom Gets A Four Seasons Makeover

This was a particularly messy job because the owners kept putting off the renovation until they could no longer use the shower. By the time they called us, tiles were already falling off of their shower walls!

We removed the tub and create a walk-in shower. Although the master bathroom was small, we created a designer look which completely revamped their master bathroom. We removed the ceiling fur-down, pony wall, and posts separating the bedroom from the vanity section. Next, we enlarged the shower/commode room by relocating the wall next to the commode. Although this reduced the size of the vanity, the new design allows for ample individual space and storage. A decorative pocket door provides privacy, while allowing easy access to the room.

Custom 36” high Cherry cabinets include a tower and crown molding that stretches to the ceiling, creating an enhanced appearance of height. Frameless mirrors and small wall lighting keep the room open and light because they emphasize the cabinet and granite. Under-mounted sinks with Oil-Rubbed Bronze faucets coordinate with the shower’s plumbing fixtures perfectly.

Oil-Rubbed Bronze plumbing fixtures with jet sprays and decorative glass tile on the shower walls tie in with the rest of the design. We scrapped the outdated wallpaper and applied a hand trowel texture. Light green paint coordinates flawlessly with the granite and tile colors, bringing a fresh look to this traditional home.

What the homeowner once called her “Motel 6” bathroom—replete with a crumbling, dilapidated shower—is now contemporary, large, and fit for a 5-star hotel.
