Jupiter Island Bathroom Remodel


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.​

Master Bath Remodel Vanity View


​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.


Before and After Photos

Bathroom Remodel Before and After jill Shevlin Design Vero Beach Interior Designer

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.

Master Bath Remodel Jill Shelvin Design Jupiter Island Vero Beach

Oh my, it gets worst before it gets better!  

Completely Stripped down.

​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 e​xisting 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

Master Bath Remodel Jill Shelvin Design Jupiter Island (11)

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.

Chandeliers

There's no doubt there are a TON of options out there.

However, that doesn't mean there's a great number of Amazing options. Besides, who wants just plain OK when you can have perfection? I guess that's what makes the difference in great results. Settling or Searching. 

Things that make you go Hmnn?

For that very reason, I am Always on the hunt for new light fixtures for my interior design projects. Every project I work on is with a unique client who has their taste and their idea of what good design is for them. 

Consequently, it's my job to make their style and taste come together seamlessly. 

I can promise you I have searched through endless web catalogs and countless vendors to put together a collection of a few of my favorite light fixtures. As a result below are some of my current favorite chandeliers. 

Pendant Chandelier, Linear Chandelier, Beaded Chandelier, Articulating, Lantern Style you name it is in here!

Design Finds at Target

You never know where that just so perfect home decor accent piece you've been looking for will show up.
Here are a few finds from Target that might be exactly what you've been searching for.


The trick to creating a great design is layering. Mix old with new. Using texture, rough edges together with smooth slick accessories. Vary lines, mix straight hard lines with curved lines.


All of this mixing is the key to creating a cohesive design.
Additionally layering laying helps with the budget. You know, that dirty little word that ruins everything.
Sometimes the less expensive items can be a better find than the most expensive. And who will ever know but you?

Backyard Beach 

Everything you need to kick off the summer Backyard Beach Days

Serena & Lily Summer Sale Backyard Beach

Backyard Beach: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

1&6-Capri Fouta Beach Towel

Six Color Options

At 400 grams, this is woven with the perfect weight, softness, and absorbency for those trips to the beach. Narrow and wide stripes, edged with a hand-knotted fringe, bring a splash of style. Made in the tradition of fine Turkish towels, this has a great mix of texture, with the jacquard-woven pattern on front reversing to a solid back of looped white cotton terry.

2& 4 - Mallorca Beach Towel

Six Color Options

From the way it looks to the way it feels, this is sure to make everyone’s list of favorites. It’s plush, woven with soft and pure Turkish Aegean cotton. Bold stripes give it that classic nautical look. And a hand-knotted fringe gives it a chic edge. Made in the tradition of fine Turkish towels, it has just the right texture, absorbency, and density. It dries quickly, too.

3 & 5 Campania Beach Towel

Two Color Options

Luxuriously soft beach day essential was inspired by a vintage botanical print. Everything from the plush Turkish cotton to the lounge-worthy generous size make it a fabulous (and functional) find for all your coastal adventures. Finished with twisted tassels on all 4 sides for extra style points.

7- Teak Beach Chair

Two color Options

This backpack-style lounge chair has an easy-going attitude that just begs you to slow down. There’s a hint of nostalgia, too, from the classic patterns to the solid teak frame that remind us of summers gone by. The canvas seat keeps you comfortable and the zippered pocket is the perfect size for a towel and your next beach read. Now you just need a good sunset...

8-Beach Umbrella

Two Color Options

Here’s one way to keep your cool – a classic beach day umbrella, decked out in stylish patterns and tassels. Packs into a matching carry bag so you can tote it from beach to home with ease.

9-Sling Chair with Tassels

Two Colors Navy or Fog

A tried-and-true classic and gave it an embellished upgrade. All the expected elements of an iconic sling remain – the wooden frame, the sturdy fabric, the uncluttered vibe – but we’ve refreshed the design with breezy tassels that take the look from casual to chic.


Outdoor Oasis

Create Your Own Outdoor Oasis with any of these great pieces.

Serena & Lily Summer Sale Outdoor Oasis Jill Shelvin Design

Outdoor Oasis: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

2-  Fringed Umbrella

Two Color Options

My kind of coastal chic. I love the pagoda-style canopy and fringe. A weighted base (sold separately) holds the umbrella steady, even in shifting seaside breezes. Generously sized to keep everyone looking cool in the shade.

3- Outdoor Riviera Bar

Part bar, part party bucket, this outdoor console is always ready for a good time. The powdercoated aluminum frame makes it fabulously weather-friendly, and the two removable teak lids create an instant work surface. With two water-tight bins below the teak lids and a lower shelf for storage, you’ll have plenty of room for drinks, glassware, and other essentials. For added interest, we applied our exclusive finish to the weave, giving this piece a truly distinctive look. It’s a timeless piece of furniture that braves the elements in style.

4- Pacifica Sofa - Driftwood

Great outdoor furniture that feels salty, lived-in, familiar. Inspired by the natural beauty of the California coast, our exclusive finish captures the sun-bleached look of weathered rattan with beachy resin wicker that lasts summer after summer. Cushions decked out in all-weather fabric give a tailored touch. Perfect for all your outdoor entertaining. (Even better for an afternoon nap.)

5- Bamileke Outdoor Coffee Table

White or Wood Finish

ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITES!

A modern spin on a traditional African design. The handcrafted basketweave pattern pays homage to the original, but we’ve updated it with a weather-friendly construction that makes it great for outdoor use. (Of course, with a design so fabulous, you may also want to try this look indoors.)

6- Montecito Pillow Cover

Three color options

This has all the best design elements of an indoor pillow, but is made for the outdoors. Textural, fabulous, unexpected – it’s one of those pieces that belongs in your mix.

7- Campania Pillow Cover

Pretty textiles belong everywhere – and pillowscapes aren’t just for interior spaces. Wonderfully resistant to sun and moisture, this pillow is designed for outside use, so you can be as comfortable in the garden as you are in your living room. We drew our pattern inspiration from a vintage botanical print, which we reimagined as a large-scale medallion for great visual texture.

8- Beachmont Rug

Dont we all love the look of a beachy denim rug, especially with stripes in the mix. Woven from recycled materials that stand up to the weather, this performance rug is beautiful enough to use indoors (and great for high-traffic areas). Our favorite detail? The looped accents that add gorgeous dimension and texture.

Favorite Find – Botanicals

Favorite Find - Botanicals & Birds

Favorite Finds Botanicals Jill Shevln Design Vero Beach Interior Designer

What are Botanicals or Botanical Illustration?

Botanical illustration is the art of depicting the form, color, and details of plant life.

As a rule, I use the term generically to represent anything in nature, plants, seaweed, eggs, feathers, butterflies and the like.  Rooted in tradition as the predecessor to photography botanicals make a great addition to any room.

I've always been a fan of botanicals and today you can find all sorts of styles.  Additonally you can find them by color, category and in varrying sizes to fit any home decor.

For Instance on the website Pintrest you will find a number of free prinatbles.  That's copies that you can print at home for next to nothing. Similarly you can find collections of vintage botanicals for sale on websites like Etsy, Charish, One Kings Lane and many more.


Here are some articles on the origin history of Botanicals from My Modern Met.  

Art that captures the beauty of nature are beautiful!   Best of all botanicals are a great way to pull together a grouping to fill a large wall.   Prints are a much less expensive route and can vary in both quality and price.  Lower end reproductions are basically color copies.  On the higher end are hand painted botanicals.   

Definatly a Designer GO-TO.  

Below is a bedroom from my Portfolio where I used a modern take on Botanical with Sepia Photographs.
