A Bathroom Remodel

Transformation 

From Dark and Dated to Bright and Fresh 


Let me take you on a little journey.   

The transformation of a Master Bath in a Jupiter Island condominium with A-Mazing Ocean and Intercoastal views.

If you didn't know a remodel is hard work.


There is nothing - not one little thing - easy about a remodel.


On the other hand, remodels are also so very rewarding.
You get to see a complete transformation take place. A true-life Cinderella Story of sorts.


Which makes all the hard work, hassle, and stuff in between worth it in the end.

Keep reading and I'll share with you the process of getting here.

Lets Get Started

The dirty truth.

A typical bathroom remodel is dirty and difficult under normal circumstances.
There are so many restrictions that limit your creativity and ability to rework the space.
Even harder still is a remodel in a condominium.
Problems are generally likely to pop up in a normal remodel. In a condo double that number.
In addition to
1. Concrete Walls & Floors
2. there are Neighbors which means
3. Time and noise restraints
4. Plumbing Locations that can not be moved
5. Permits that need to be pulled which leads to
6. Inspections

Nonetheless

Jumping Right In


When I was brought on to design and remodel this Jupiter Island Master Bathroom I was super excited. For one, I had worked with the client previously, (a Breeze), and secondly, I was allowed to make decisions on the fly (hooray!).

Given complete control,  I can promise you is Not a common thing.

All my clients do have great trust in me, no doubt, but I don't get to just do whatever I want.

On this project, I could do whatever I wanted! The only requests were to Update and Make it Bright.
Consequently, it was Much easier to push through and get the job done ASAP.
My client had 100% faith in me that I would get a great result. Whoo Hooo!


But wait...

It couldn't be that easy.  Oh no.

Digging into the project I found 
There were angles everywhere!  
At every turn, there were strange empty corners and concrete walls that could not be touched.

Did I mention we had a Deadline?


We had a HARD completion deadline and a three and a half months to get it done. And I mean the deadline was HARD!

The building would shut down any work that was not completed by the end of the summer, and we were just getting started. Yikes!

Permits needed to be pulled, selections needed to be ordered, and on-site in time. Oh, the stress of it!

Nonetheless, I was ready and willing to tear this place apart and get the best result possible.

Yup, as you can see, the Before was pretty dated and dark.  

Not only were the cabinets and tub oddly placed they were Old School!

The inset marble pattern on the floor was dark and dated.

The Bathroom originally had a his and hers separate vanity as well as a His and Hers separate W/C. You had to walk through Her W/C to get into the shower.  

During the Demo phase, 

I turned the toilet to create a new W/C room and consequently tripled the size of the shower.

The NEW Shower still has the exact same window.

Now instead of showering with your back to the Ocean View the new layout allows you to view the ocean while showering.  There is also a bench seat with an additional shower head and hand held tucked away.

Gone- Gone - Gone

 is the ugly plastic drop in tub and in it's place is a lovely freestanding tub.

The bonus that came with completely gutting the room was we did find extra "room" if you will that was hidden corners.   There is still a His and Hers vanity and a sit-down makeup area for her as well tucked behind one of the vanities.


Original Floor Plan 

I had to go to the basement of the building and dig through all the construction documents to pull the original plans.  

Now I'm not afraid to site measure and to create my floor plan drawings.  But this place, with crazy angles was a nightmare to even think of measuring.   I was thrilled to find to scale original drawings to work from.

I always start with a floor plan.  

Renovation Floor Plan 

The Renovation Plan kept all the integral pieces of the existing plan but tweaked them a bit.
The Her vanity was turned into a larger shower and a closet was eliminated to create a sitting vanity area.

As is often the case, even though I planned everything out, every single detail we did encounter some obstacles and the final product is not exactly as I had planned. But nonetheless a better overall plan.

 

Step One - Demolition

Here's a little walk thru video I took when we started the Demo phase.  This was just the beginning.  By the time it was all done every bit of the old bathroom was gone!  Every door, every wall, we even jack hammered up the old marble floor.

Oh my, it gets worst before it gets better!  

Completely Stripped down.

Floor Tile Installation

Everything in construction has to go in sequence.  The marble floors were laid first and then we went back and added drywall.  All the while perfecting the locations of wall outlets, wall and ceiling lighting and cabinets.

Remember we had to jackhammer up all that old marble flooring!  What A MESS!

Plan The Work

Below on the left are the detail drawings I did for the Marble Layout on the Floors and the Wall.  

On the Right are the cabinet plans.

The shower floors had to be floated to get the water to drain to the only drain. This is  one of those existing issues that we could not change.  

It's starting to take shape and look like a bathroom.  The carpenters are in adding baseboard, window trim.  The cabinets were installed.  We couldn't install the cabinets until the floors were done.

Cabinet  Installation

Ordinarily once the cabinets are installed the next step is countertops.  We had tall vanity towers on each side of each sink for storage.  The towers could not be installed until the countertops were in.  

Then finally....the plumbers could come in and wrap things up.  

Almost to the finish Line!

Oh and also you can see in the photos above, there are junction boxes for light fixtures that still need to be installed as well.  Not only did we have wall light fixtures, we had a centered chandelier, flush mount ceiling fixtures and vanity sconces as well.

5 Expert Tips for a Powder Room Revamp

I was asked by the Real Estate website REDFIN last week to give my thoughts on the littlest room in the house, the Powder Room for an article they wanted to post online 

"Expert Tips For Revamping an Outdated Powder Room."

Not one to shy away from giving my two cents, I was more than happy to give one idea.  Depending on your budget and desired outcome here are some of the tips from myself and other designers to transform you Powder Room.  

I've created some amazing Powder Rooms over the years, it's just a shame that they are so small, it is beyond difficult to take (good) photos of them!  I have a few that were major tranformations.  Check them out below.

This Powder Room was a makeover.  Everything stayed the same, we just Revamped it!

AFTER

Powder Room Makeover Jill Shevlin Design

We didn't want to do any Major work in this Powder Room.  Simple Solutions - I had the cabinet refinished to match the new wallcovering and kept the original sink, fixtures, and mirror.  The sconces and cabinet hardware are all new.  I accessoirzed with my clients collection of perfume bottles and there you go.

Experts Reveal Their Best Tips for the Ultimate Powder Room Remodel

Whether your powder room is looking dull and outdated, or you just have an itch to change things up, a powder room remodel can make a huge difference in your home’s overall appearance. And since powder rooms tend to be smaller, you have the added design freedom to play around with bold colors, patterned wallpaper, and even different lighting fixtures or hardware to make the space pop. To help you revamp your outdated powder room, we reached out to experts from San Francisco, CA all the way to Miami, FL for their expertise. Here are their best tips and advice for the ultimate powder room remodel:

1.  PLAN AHEAD

 to create a cohesive aesthetic


Grab your inspiration source and let it set the tone for the rest of the space's design concept. 

For example, if you are in love with a specific vessel bowl sink that you want to incorporate into the design for your powder room, start with that and then work on coordinating the other elements in the bathroom with that fixture. It will allow for a more harmonious concept and ensure that your selections work together for a visually aesthetic completed project while guaranteeing you get the products that excite you. - Amanda Esh, Palmetto Kitchen and Bath Center




2.  The powder room is the perfect place to

BE BOLD & CREATIVE


Let your creativity flow with an accent wall.

For your powder room remodel, try introducing an eye-catching accent wall with a pop of color, geometric tile, or printed wallpaper. Complete the space with a statement vanity light that illuminates your personal style. - Lamps.com

Use statement tiling.

The powder room is the one place where you can have a little fun – be bold and playful or simple and serene. But either way you go, it’s a place to allow your creativity to come out and create a big impression in a small space. Consider adding a beautiful and impactful statement tile on the wall behind the sink. - PDG Studios

Create a gallery wall.

A powder room is a great place to showcase your personality by putting together a gallery wall. Since there's no bathtub or shower, humidity isn't a problem. Choose artwork that speaks to you, and don't be afraid to go from floor to ceiling on the feature wall. - Room to Design

Don’t be afraid to splurge a little.

You can choose more precious, and higher-end products like great tile or custom wallpaper on a highlighted wall with a powder room remodel. Most powder rooms have smaller walls, making sense to splurge on the materials you use in this space. Less is more in a powder room, and the pieces you choose should be bold and stately. - Gabby


3.  Wallpaper can

MAKE all the difference (and A MAJOR STATEMENT)


Nothing transforms a space more dramatically than a bold wallpaper

With countless designs and even removable wallpaper options on the market, it's easier than ever to elevate a drab, dark space into something eye-catching, artistic, and unique. - Coddington Interior Design

Create a feature wall behind the toilet using patterned wallpaper.

Pick up a color from the pattern to paint the rest of the bathroom and use that same color for a new frame for your mirror or hang a chandelier from the ceiling. - Inverness Design Build Group Ltd.

Wallpaper is a simple way to make a lasting impression. 

Due to its small size, a powder room is the one area in the house where you can live out your decorating dreams - nothing will break the budget or be revisited in time. Feel free to go bold with color or a statement wallpaper to make a big impact in a small room. - Jill Shevlin Design

Powder Room Revamp Jill Shevlin Design

In this Powder Room Revamp we did Everything!  The only original item that remains is the wood floor.  Instead of an accent wall with paint or paper, I opted for a stone feature wall.  Laser printed Carrera Marble.  Don't you just Love it?

You can read all about the entire home remodel in a post I did HERE

4.  Don’t forget about FIXTURES


Ditch outdated fixtures.

Nothing screams dated as much as old, tired fixtures in your powder room. Think of the lighting, faucet, and cabinet hardware as the jewelry. By adding stylish new fixtures, you’ll have a stunning new look in your powder room without breaking your budget. - Organized by Design

Absolutely spend on updating your plumbing fixtures. 

Plumbing fixtures have undergone significant improvements, and they are worth the upgrade factor. Go bold with your walls; if they are light now, go dark – and if they are dark now, go light. - Studio M Interior Design


5.  The ultimate powder room remodel isn’t complete without UPGRADE lighting and flooring


Lighting is the jewelry of the home

So whether you want to make a statement or enhance the new colors you’ve remodeled with, try a fixture that offers just as much visual style as it does lighting balance to give the room an entirely complete finish. - Laura Lee Designs

CLICK ON ANY IMAGE BELOW FOR MORE INFO & PRICE

Well-placed statement lighting above the vanity is essential

Nothing is worse than walking into a powder bathroom with vanity lights that cast shadows over your face. I recommend installing a pair of sconces (or two hanging pendants) on each side of the mirror, so the bulb is about 63" above the floor to ensure that your face is well-lit. It's okay to find sconces or pendants that are a bit more decorative in a powder room than you would hang in a larger bathroom. - Rebecca Quandt Interiors

CLICK ON ANY IMAGE BELOW FOR MORE INFO & PRICE

Change up the flooring. 

It doesn't matter if you choose tile or wood; changing the flooring material in your powder room from the adjacent rooms will lend itself to generating visual interest that will catch your eye - tre Designs

Vero Beach Designer in California Reno Story

Rancho Santa Fe, California Remodel 

When I got the call to come to California to help my long time clients with a home they were contemplating purchasing, I jumped on the first flight out of Florida to see what was in store. There really is nothing better than working with clients you have a history with. It's just easier - all the stuff I usually have to figure out along the way, likes, dislikes, color preferences, and the like I already know.

I had no idea what the new house was going to look like, I was going in blind.

To make things even more interesting my clients were relocating from the East Coast to the West Coast.

And

They had sold the previous home which we designed together completely furnished.

All they were bringing with them to California were their two Bernese Mountain dogs, their art collection and a piece or two of furniture that was sentimental to them.

 By the way, did I mention the design style of the new (to them) California house?

It was a mix.

Not one particular style, but a combo of Spanish meets California, blended with, a little bit of everything.

Nevertheless, it was definitely cute, charming and had "great bones" as many like to say.  Additionally, it had been updated in many areas, but not quite...how does one say, to the taste level of..ehm...everyone.

Spanish, Traditional was quite a departure in style for my clients whose previous home in New York was a Modern Farmhouse. Well, more modern than farmhouse but, it happened to be situated on a large plot of land consisting of 88 acres of land with amazing views just 2 hours north of New York City.

We had worked together to build and design the East Coast Modern Farmhouse back 2008 to 2009.

Suffice to say, as we walked through the new CA house it was apparent we had a little bit of a challenge on our hands.

Marching Orders

Marry Modern Farmhouse, in a storybook, Spanish, meets California mixed traditional Hinz 57 house.

No problem!

Oh, and of course, we were on a deadline as well. Oh goodness yes, what fun would a remodel be without a deadline?


It shouldn't go without noting that this project was done, for the most part remotely.  

I live in Vero Beach, Florida, and the project was in California.  Not a problem.  

I have found that out of town work is much easier than those projects at home.  I have to be 100% prepared and organized, as do my clients.  We tend to get things done quickly - because we have to.


THE ENTRY

Rancho Sante Fe CA remodel by Jill Shevlin Design Vero Beach Interior Designer

The stage for the house was set at the entry.

A pair of large scrolled iron and glass double doors greet you at the entrance to the Rancho Santa Fe house.

Situated in the neighborhood of Fairbanks Ranch, a lovely little area north of San Diego.

Full disclosure - I am a completely in love with California!  I had only visited LA once prior to this trip but know I would be back.  Now I'm working  on a plan that gets me out of Florida in the summer to spend it in CA.  Who knows when or if it will come to fruition -  but a girl can dream - right?

The entry is large and the perfect junction between room several rooms.

On the left upon entering was a formal Dining Room. To the right and two steps, down is a large Formal Living Room.  Straight ahead you walked into the Family Room with glass doors out to the pool and patio.  


THE FORMAL LIVING ROOM

Seating area facing the Firplace in a California Home Remdeled Living Room by Jill Shevlin Design Vero Beach Interior Designer

The Formal Living Room needed to function as more than just a (useless) room that you look at and never use.  

Oh no, this Large Living Room was going to be used.

Besides being large, the room came with a lot of great features,  tall ceilings with beams (and hideous ceiling fans), a stone fireplace as well as great windows.  It was Long and not so narrow, but long! Really Long.

The list of functions for this living room included not only a seating area but additionally a bar, home to  a TV

and

it had to be dog friendly as well.

I'm sure it is not obvious from the photos that the sofa's in the room are 96" in length, that's generous!  

Did I mention that the room was LONG?


An Antique Spanish Table is the anchor to one wall in the Living Room.  We created a collage Art Collection above the table as well as a pace to display vintage and antique objects.  
Living Room Antique Spanish Table with art collection above in California home designed by Jill Shelvin Vero Beach , FL interior Designer

It was a bit of a struggle deciding what to do at the far end of the room.  Playing into the Spanish vibe we sought out and found a vintage Spanish Table to anchor the Space.  If you can believe it, this table was my first purchase from First Dibs.

Above the Spanish table art from the collection was hung in an asymmetrical grouping.  The layout of the room left only one wall for art and there is still room for more.  The little chair we found in vintage shop in LA.


Want to get a similar look?

The table below is a new table, available in black similar to the vintage piece in the photo above.  


Click on the image below if you would like more info and a price on the table.

The iron and leather bench below as well as the art glass came from the New York house.  Amazing (if I do say so) linen sheer draperies on an iron rod are a soft accent among all the hard stone and rigid lines of the Living Room.

The sofa fabric is an outdoor fabric from LINK and is a beautiful velvet performance fabric.  

That's right solution dyed acrylic means no worries!  

The coffee table was made locally in Solana Beach.  It's nearly identical to the one made for the previous home.  

We loved it so much we recreated it!

Not one, but two Thomas O'Brien Chandeliers from Visual Comfort hang in the Living Room.  

They replaced ceiling fans that were originally there.  Not only do they add another element to the design, but they give off great ambient light for the room.

Above the fireplace, a TV is hidden behind a vintage Asian Screen.  

Take a look at this POST I wrote about where I found the screen, and how it works.  It was a big design hurdle to get a TV in the room and not have it be the focal point.

Pop over HERE to see some more ideas for hiding a TV in your Living Room.

THE DINING ROOM

The Art Deco style buffet in the dining room is another piece that made the long journey to California. This piece was purchased for a home we designed about 15 years prior and it's made the cut every time.  

Above the buffet is a collage of art from the homeowners' collection.

THE FAMILY ROOM

The Family Room took on a major transformation with the remodel of the Fireplace.  

It is not an easy task to re-imagine a fireplace.  EVERYTHING inside must remain the same.  It ended up with a new stone mantle much simplier than the original.

THE KITCHEN

Looking back it seems like not much was done to the Kitchen

Except

New Floors

New Table

Uppers Cabinets Added

You know, just a few minor tweaks to get it here.

The Stainless Steel and Glass Table was first done for the New York House.  It worked so well, we had the same manufacturer create another for this house.  Take a look HERE to see it in the other house.

THE POWDER BATH

The Powder Bath was 

COMPLETELY CHANGED!

Not one single original item remains.  Well, I take that back, the mirror is not new.  Another one of the items that made the trip to California.  It was a great find long ago on a shopping trip to NYC. 

The bathroom got a new Carrara Marble wall. (Sooooo Pretty!!) This stone has the pattern laser printed on it.

In addition to a new free standing Single Vanity with a Basalt stone top and iron & steel base.

THE MASTER BEDROOM

The Master Bedroom is another room of the house that was Long and filled with challenges.  

Despite all the obstacles of getting the house to function it also needed to have the clean line, simple aesthetic of my clients taste.

Two of the biggest changes to the Master Bedroom were replacing the bookcases and closing in the soffits. 

I can't tell you how much I Hated the soffit that ran along the entire side of the bedroom, on both sides,  with beams that floated above.   It's a subtle change that most people would probably not even notice.  

But How could anyone not notice? Beyond me!?!  Made me crazy!!

Anyway, when you look at the two images can you see the major difference?  I sure hope so.

Before Image of Master Bedroom Fireplace 

Just to play it safe, we had the contractor mock up what closing in the soffit would look like.  It gave the beams an ending point and if I do say, made a vast improvement.

It's a little difficult to tell from the photo, however the feature wall of the Master Bedroom where the bed is place has an amazing Phillip Jeffries Wall Covering in tones of gray.

A King size four-poster iron bed with an upholstered headboard in a darker shade of gray.

This is the same performance velvet that was used in the Living Room, just in another color.

In addition to the bed, the fireplace chairs are in the same fabric.

THE POOL & WINE HOUSE

Now, Outdoors is not my area of expertise (So I say) but I am willing to give my opinion at any time.  (wink)

The renovations didn't end with the interior.  The yard, the pool, the garden, the hill all got a face lift.  

In addition to - the addition of -  a little wine house on the hill.

Pool View of California Home Remodel by Jill Shevlin Design Vero Beach Florida

This little wine house was built as an almost exact duplicate ( on the interior ) as the one built in New York.  The last one was in a basement.  So here, the wine house was built to blend into the landscape and look as though it had always been there.

One fun find was the antique Asian doors that were retro fitted to function as the doors into the wine house.
