2010 Remodeling Excellence Award
Hotel Inspired Naperville Bathroom Wins NARI Award
We originally featured this bathroom transformation back in September 2010, where we shared the results of one client’s desire to have a master bathroom that invoked the sense of a four-star hotel stay. Since this bathroom remodel recently won a 2010 Remodeling Excellence Award from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) Greater Chicago area, we thought it would be fun to share the story, and the results, once again.
These Naperville homeowners were looking for a bathroom renovation that would enhance their peace of mind and create a serene “hotel-like” environment. Normandy Builders & Architects Designer Jennifer Runner, AKBD worked closely with them to address the items on their wish list and developed a bathroom that enhances their sense of well being every morning as they begin their day.
The old, outdated cabinetry and fixtures were replaced with warm cherry cabinetry, marble countertops and new fixtures. A pair of square undermount sinks add to the clean lines of the space, and a square bathtub was added to match.
Their once small shower was enlarged in size and the removal of the soffit and side walls make the bathroom feel larger and more open. The glass enclosure for the shower lets natural light flood in and the careful matching of the continuous tile border from the bathtub to shower area tie these two spaces together. Colors were carefully chosen to lend a feeling of warmth and richness to the bathroom. The pendant lights are a nice accent that elevates the room to a new level of sophistication and truly rounds out the four star hotel look.
