Turquoise Bathroom Remodel Wins National Award

Normandy is thrilled to announce that our very own Ann Stockard was recently named a 2014 Chrysalis Award Winner for Remodeling Excellence. Ann’s vibrant master bathroom project was judged on overall design, the creative use of space and materials, and the degree to which the project enhanced the original structure, bringing in a National title in the category of Bath Remodel $40,000-60,000.

BRUNER17Marked-300x231“It’s always an honor to have your work recognized as one of the best from an esteemed group of peers, but for one of my bathroom renovations to receive National recognition among this year’s Chrysalis Awards is exciting and very flattering,” says Ann.  The national award-winning project was a stunning bathroom remodel where Ann was able to effectively capture the homeowner’s personality by incorporating bright pops of turquoise. “We went with turquoise tile mosaic accents throughout the space to create focal points and a sense of harmony.  The neutral beige walls really set off the turquoise; giving the homeowners the vibrant bathroom they desired.” added Ann.

One of the keys to making this bathroom possible was expanding into an adjoining space.  The adjacent laundry room was reconfigured and the remaining square footage was BRUNER43Marked-231x300used to create a larger shower in the bathroom and relocate the tub.  “The curved ledge behind the bathtub adds movement to the space, but remains functional.” noted Ann. This curved motif was also carried into the shower, with the design of the bench. In order to make the once small space feel bright and open, Ann used plenty of lighting, which reflected beautifully off the turquoise tile mosaic, and a large vanity mirror.  Ann used these methods and other popular bathroom trends in order to give the homeowner’s the updated bathroom they envisioned.
