Project of the Month: A Master Bathroom Renovation

Posted by Melissa Sposato on Tue, Aug 2, 2016

A bathroom in a classic colonial home built in 1921 was completely renovated to become a comfortable, updated master bathroom retreat.

A master bath is a homeowner’s personal space. When a bathroom doesn’t meet the needs of the users it may be time for a change. A master bath in a Jamesville, NY home that was built in 2000 did not provide a comfortable retreat for the homeowners who prefer a walk-in shower to a tub and wanted to add a heated floor. We worked with them to redesign the bathroom and the way the space functions for them.

Project of the Month: Manlius Master Bathroom Remodel

Posted by Vince Petralito on Tue, Feb 2, 2016

Bathroom trends and lifestyles change over time. In the 1980s and 1990s desirable features in a master bathroom included a large whirlpool tub and a small shower. A dressing area with a vanity, where a woman could be seated to apply her makeup, and brass finishes were also trends. Today, comfort and easy maintenance are important in bath design.

Our Project of the Month features a late 1980s-era master bathroom in Manlius, NY that was completely remodeled to provide a practical retreat for the homeowner. Updates include an expanded vanity, a private area for the toilet and a walk-in shower without doors that can be turned on by a remote control unit.
