So many people are remodeling these days and the most popular areas seem to be kitchens, master suites and basements. That being said, we recently wrapped up an absolutely spectacular master suite remodeling project that I simply couldn’t wait to share. I get so excited when I can help a client achieve the kind of space they’ve been dreaming of and that’s exactly what we did in this Leawood, Kansas home.

Out with the Old!

For this client, it was time to bid goodbye to the old decor that didn’t reflect their personal style and usher in pure contemporary style that was clean, elegant and restful. Looking at the before pictures you can see that the bedroom and bathroom consisted of a mix of traditional furniture, wall treatments and accessories that were badly in need of updating. We were charged with the task of creating a zen-like space that was up to date, functional and stunning.

Hello Space Plan!

After meeting with the client at length, we got to work on a space plan. One of the biggest issues was with the bathroom layout. The placement of fixtures weren’t very conducive to everyday living and felt very unbalanced. What made it even more difficult was the fact that there isn’t a door between the main bath area and the bedroom, making the bathroom visible to anyone who walked into the room. We decided to redo the bathroom completely to make the best use of the space and give the client something they would love to gaze upon AND use! The new bathroom would feature new tile floors, custom cabinetry and beautiful “accessories” with the tub, shower, and special touches with tile and hardware and lighting. The bedroom would get a major facelift with new paint, carpet, furniture, bedding and accessories.

Without a doubt, the completed space is just gorgeous in person. The pictures just don’t do it justice but you can see how dramatic the difference is from what it was before we came in to refresh the space!В  The bedroom is restful with a neutral warm grey tones for the walls and floors that perfectly compliment the rich browns of the hardwood and upholstery of the new custom bed and night tables. Simple prints on the walls draw in red as an accent color and minimal accessories help give the feeling of an upscale hotel. The custom bedding draws the eye to the welcoming bed and tie the look together between the bedroom and bathroom color scheme of greys, blacks and reds. The look is carried through to the oversize walk-in closet which was newly outfitted with built-ins that are to-die-for! This closet is an absolute dream and the client is able to easily access their clothing and personal items in this new and highly organized space.

The bathroom consists of a gorgeous freestanding deep soaking tub with modern fixtures that provides a beautiful focal point for the space. We even made sure a touch of of bling could be found with a sparkling crystal chandelier directly above.В  A roman shade with wide black and grey stripes tops the large window and draws the eye to the tub in addition to providing instant privacy when bathing. Flanking the tub are his and hers custom vanities, complete with Carrera marble countertops, beautiful marble and granite mosaic tile backsplashes, and elegant chrome faucets and hardware. We incorporated plenty of recessed lightingВ  into the vanity design to ensure the space has plenty of light that works well with the simple and streamlined finish but what you can’t see are the LED lights that are hidden behind the mirrors that provide an ideal amount of illumination. There is even a makeup mirror surrounded by lights behind one of the vanity doors for perfect makeup application lighting. Those are the custom touches you just can’t get anywhere else and are a signature part of our exclusive C3 Design process. In this case we took our client’s wish list and came up with a solution that we then had custom built locally to suit their specific needs.

Hidden behind the privacy of the bedroom wall, we incorporated a brand new glass enclosed shower that echoes the mosaic tile used on the backsplash in the shower base along with the gorgeous Carrera marble on the walls. Outfitted with plenty of shelves, multiple shower heads and a built in bench, this shower is pretty and practical. For the ultimate in bathing luxury, there’s nothing like having a nice warm towel which is why we also installed a gleaming, heated towel rack just outside the shower door.
