The goal of this three-time award-winning project was to update the outdated master bathroom to better meet the homeowners’ design tastes and the style of the rest of this foothills home, as well as update all the doors on the first floor, and create a contemporary mud room and staircase to the basement.
The homeowners wanted a master suite that had a masculine feel, incorporated elements of black steel, and wood, and contrast with clean white tiles and countertops, and helped their long and skinny layout feel larger/ make better use of the space they have. They also wanted a more spacious and luxurious shower with water temperature control. A large window that existed above the original soaking tub offered spectacular views down into Boulder valley and it was important to keep this element in the updated design. However, privacy was also very important. Therefore, a custom-built powder-coated steel shelf was created to provide privacy blocking, add storage, and add a contrasting design element to the white wall tiles. Black honeycomb floor tiles, new black walnut cabinetry, contemporary wallpaper, a floor-to-ceiling glass shower wall, and updated fixtures elevated the space and gave the clients exactly the look and feel that they wanted.
Unique custom metal design elements can be found throughout the new spaces (shower, mud room bench and shelving, and staircase railings and guardrails), and give this home the contemporary feel that the homeowners desired.
