RemodelWest recently completed this two bathroom remodeling project up in the hills between Saratoga and Los Gatos.With a beautiful view, winding rode up to the driveway and a recently updated outdoor entertainment area, these homeowners were in desperate need of a facelift for their two bathrooms.
The hall bathroom was primarily used for guests and also had access to the outdoor pool area. The layout didn’t need much of a change; the materials would be the major adjustment in this bathroom. The original design consisted of tiled walls closing in the shower area. Designer Sarah Spiroff planned for a glass shower enclosure to really open up the space and a bench seat for added comfort. Project Manager, Jim Welch, installed custom cabinetry for the vanity provided by Crystal. For the countertop a textured quartz material was used and a tumbled natural stone tile for the floors laid in a Versailles pattern.
The goals for the master bathroom were to update materials, increase storage and create a more functional his and hers for these busy homeowners. Using similar materials as in the hall bath, the design team created a spacious and functional bathroom with a clean, traditional feel. Integrated into this bathroom that was different than the hall bath was the use of a decorative tile. This “mushroom” colored glass tile was used to border the wall tile, tile the pony wall in the shower and was also used to decorate the recessed niche. With a complimentary paint color on the walls and accent towels, the addition of the glass tile completes this design.
