Columbia, MD Master Bathroom Remodel – A Case Study

Statistics show a master bathroom remodel is one of the best investments you can make to add to the enjoyment of your home, and for the eventual resale value of your home.

We recently worked with a couple in Columbia, Maryland, who wanted extensive bathroom remodeling that would leave them with a master bath that would remind them of a bathroom they might find in a high end hotel. They let owner Andy Lohmeyer design it from scratch, incorporating clean lines, modern fixtures and chrome, which never goes out of style.

We began the bathroom remodel by gutting the existing master bath, all the way down to the studs.  We framed an entrance way into the bath with double doors, framed an archway with half columns, framed a toilet area, moved the shower and enlarged it . We also removed large ugly bulk heads that were in the existing bathroom to make the ceiling higher. This makes the entire space feel larger

We used porcelain tile for the floor. The tile is porcelain made to look like marble. The client wanted marble, but when you use marble you have to be careful because the marble can look like a checker board and is very, very slippery. So we talked them into this porcelain tile.

The frameless shower door is 78” tall, which is two inches shy of where shower doors become custom and go way up in price.    We again incorporated porcelain tile and modern sink and shower fixtures from Grohe.

The modern tub is a Baine Ultra with air, heated backrest and lights for the ultimate in luxury. This tub easily accommodates two.

The modern vanities, tray ceiling, crown molding, backlighting  and chandelier help complete the look of a luxury hotel bathroom. The client was very pleased.
