Column: Going retro

Commentary by Randy Sorrell

This stunning master bathroom in Avon showcases a classic retro-fit!

It’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint with updated colors will do for any space, but especially master bathrooms when charged with developing a luxury spa-feel.  The high quality vanity was dated only by it’s tired finish and dated counter.  The structure itself was very tasteful and relevant, so we painted it, installed a granite counter, new under mount sinks, fresh fixtures and door pulls. It looks fabulous!

Likewise, the Jacuzzi tub and surround shower needed a little happy bling added.  A vigorous professional buffing, new fixtures and jet covers served to elevate the appearance to a spa-quality tub.  A predominantly frameless shower door installation and abbreviated shower expansion opened up the footprint considerably and feels much more elegant.  Thousands of dollars were saved by retro-fitting instead of a complete tear out!

A cold crawl space below demanded heated flooring with a relevant gray ribbon tile that pulls in all the finishes and textures together.  Window treatments, high-shine individual mirrors with updated trim details, proper floor treatments and lush towels drive the project to completion.

Luxury.  Bathroom.  Spa.
