Bathing beauty: Gorgeous woodwork and a free-standing tub complete this bathroom remodel by the team at Rock Solid Renovations.
While Jeremiah Lee specializes in architectural drawings and planning and Susie Edie regularly perfects interior design finishes, the two Rock Solid Renovations pros regularly tackle projects as a team. That was the case in this remodel work at this home, which was originally built in 1976. The owners looked to Rock Solid Renovations to create a master suite that echoed the architectural styles they regularly enjoy on their travels to Hawaii. But it took much more than just a simple facelift to reach their goal—it also took a bit of restructuring. The project started by gaining additional space, utilizing an unused bedroom and bathroom that adjoined the existing master suite. “We were able to take two small dated bathrooms and two closets and combine them to create the master suite,” Susie says.
After the new space was created, the team got to work making it beautiful. They replaced the space’s old 8-foot flat ceiling with a vaulted ceiling complete with exposed beams and wood cladding, and they added a large freestanding tub that greets the owners as they enter. A marble clad Roman shower occupies the opposite side of the bathtub wall, and new casework was designed to create a double vanity, a make-up vanity and a custom closet system complete with a center island. “Now the feel is similar to a classy, tropical-style spa,” Susie says. “The clients are thrilled with the outcome.”—S.W.
