How many times have you fallen in love with a room you see in a design book? Is your “dream house” file full of magazine pictures? Or do you spend hours scanning Pinterest or Houzz for inspiration? For one client, the love of a master bathroom she saw in Traditional Home became a reality. Her inspiration began with a picture that she carried around for several years before actually deciding to start the process. A downstairs guest room and mother-in-law suite became a master bedroom, bathroom and closets along with a small sitting room.
After selecting a contractor, we began meeting with the cabinet maker and the granite company. Selecting the granite was a challenge, knowing that the slab would not only run horizontally but also vertically. Cabinet details were drawn, lighting was selected and finishes determined.
Attention to detail was important when designing and building the custom cabinets. Capitol Cabinets’ kept the proportions of the two matching lavatories and dressing table in mind when designing the cabinets. We also added a linen cabinet in a small space that was originally planned to be part of the closet. The inset oval mirror was another important detail that the client loved from the magazine picture. After measuring multiple times, and several meetings with the contractor and granite installer, we decided to cut the granite first, then insert the oval mirror that was measured to fit. Electrical boxes for the two sconces were placed between the medicine cabinets and oval mirror before cutting the granite.Finally, the space came together with all the finishing touches.
Perfection, of course!
