​Describe the project, what makes it unusual, and/or any outstanding characteristics.
Custom total bath remodel. These homeowners appreciated the prior owner’s design attempts, however, did not find the Greco Italian Columns, faux paintings and lack of storage in keeping with their lifestyle. We designed and transformed their bathroom into a gorgeous, timeless bathroom with ample storage and comfortable space. Our cabinetry was custom made to fit the space, we removed existing knee walls and linen closet and tied the two vanity areas together with a built in linen hutch. Don’t let the drawers deceive you, they are 30” deep and provide tons of easy access storage for towels. A panel was put at the back between the upper and lower drawers so that the depth did not overwhelm nor create a cavernous feel. The mullions at the glass front cabinets were custom designed and fabricated on our CNC. The pilasters flanking the linen hutch hide tall medicine cabinets facing each vanity. This bathroom is all about the details, classic, traditional, timeless and beautiful. Who wouldn’t want to start their day in this oasis.

All cabinetry 100% fabricated in our shop. Solid Maple Face Frame cabinet fronts, doors and trim.
