Andrea Langford knows a thing or two about creating luxurious, yet functional bathrooms. As a professional bathroom designer in Saratoga Springs, NY, Andrea is adept at walking clients through the entire remodeling process. From planning the layout, to choosing quality materials and designing the overall look, Andrea skillfully guides her clients and easily transforms an outdated bathroom into the bathroom of their dreams.
In this master bathroom remodel, the clients enlisted Andrea’s expertise to update the dated appearance of the room, fix existing water damage issues, and make the bathroom more user friendly and universal. Overall the bathroom was a good size, but had a lot of wasted space and dated cabinetry with little to no storage.
Developing the Design
The clients only had a few design requests. They wanted to make the space user friendly, install a nicer shower, and incorporate a separate tub. The rest was left up to Andrea’s bathroom design expertise. The first thing she did was create an updated floor plan. By moving the wall of the shower, she was able to fit a nice sized soaking tub next to the shower. She also incorporated a window into the new wall to allow more light into the shower. She also added a wall with frosted glass window in between the vanity and the toilet to give the area more privacy without compromising lighting. The new layout gave the bathroom a better flow and a roomier feel, allowed for more storage space, and utilized the space more efficiently.
Selecting the Right Materials
Andrea chose materials that were long lasting, and easy to maintain with a stone look. Several porcelain tiles with different stone patterns were considered for this design. The winner was a large porcelain tile with soft, muted neutral tones that really warmed up the space. The larger tiles when laid diagonally really helped make the room feel larger.
The white vanity added an elegant touch to the room. The height was raised to make it more comfortable for the homeowners, and also gave additional storage space underneath to hide miscellaneous items in baskets. A stunning quartz counter top completes the look. Above the vanity is a custom bevel glass mirror designed to be wide enough to fit both sinks and allow for balanced lighting. A magnifying mirror mounted to the wall makes getting ready more convenient and is considered an essential piece of the bathroom now.
No bathroom renovation is complete without some unique fixtures and features. In this remodel a Kohler VibrAcoustic soaking tub was a favorite for this particular client. The tub allows the user to experience the music through the water, kind of like a bubble bath via music.
The Kohler hydrorail shower head in the shower is also a unique fixture to note. Featuring a rain head fixture combined with a hand-held shower head, the fixture offers multiple adjustments for the ultimate user convenience. The soaking tub also features a Kohler hand-held shower head. This makes it easy to rinse off after a luxurious bubble bath. It also makes cleaning the tub a breeze.
The placement of the on off handles in the shower is a design consideration that allows the clients to turn the shower on or off without having to step inside the shower. Something so simple is a much appreciated consideration the previous shower did not have.
