Dondi and Cushman Construction took home the NARI CotY Award for First Place Residential Bathroom $50,001 to $75,000.
The homeowners of this project were looking to have a better functioning space in their master bathroom along with an updated look. Their specific needs included:
Remove whirlpool tub that was not being used
Better function and storage in the vanity area
Increase closet storage
Expand the shower size with custom sprays desired
Address interference of linen closet and the existing bath door
In-floor heat desired
Stay within existing bath and closet footprint
With the tub removed the vanity and toilet were placed on the same wall. This allowed for the additional storage desired and provided some privacy for the toilet area. Tile and wood accents were added to create a visually stunning vanity wall and mirror area.
To increase the shower and closet area the toilet room and linen closet were removed and the existing bath door was relocated. The addition of a linen cabinet recessed into the wall provided additional storage and created a dramatic entry into the closet area. Custom cabinetry was used to maximize storage and function of the closet. The custom constructed shower was built with recesses and accessory hooks, custom glass door and side panels, and multiple plumbing fixtures. The glass shower door and side panels give the space a more open feel and show off the tile design and pattern.
The existing entrance door to the bathroom was relocated to accommodate the new layout. The doorway was reconstructed to allow for a custom sliding barn door with custom hardware to maximize accessibility and space. In floor radiant heat was added to the new bathroom floor with a separate wall control thermostat. Our team was able to meet all of the client’s needs and give them a space to show off.
