How to create a Fabulous Master-Bathroom without a lot of Space: Fall 2018

The beautiful Fall weather is just around the corner!  Can you imagine the orange and red colors, and the crunching of leaves as you walk?  Well….  it’s not quite here yet in the greater Atlanta area, but it will be coming soon!  In the meantime, let’s talk about what’s hot in bathroom remodeling.

If you have a smaller space in your master bathroom, like in the picture above, many people are choosing to eliminate the bathtub and instead opt for a spacious tiled shower.  Pebble mosaics adorn the floor of this shower with a 12×24 marble look tile for the walls and bathroom floor.  The sleek modern double-sink vanity has brushed nickel single handle faucets which are a popular choice.  Custom framed mirrors that match the trim and mouldings in the home are another popular design option.

In the picture above, our clients had a very small space to work with in their master-bathroom, and therefore opted to transform the space while still maintaining the existing layout.  We removed the old bathtub, and created a custom tiled shower with marble subway tile on the walls, marble basket weave mosaics on the shower floor and in a rug inlay on the outer floor.  A frame-less shower glass gives the illusion of even more space.  Brushed nickel faucets, a sleek vanity with marble counter-top modernize the bathroom into a small oasis.

If relaxing in a bathtub is a priortiy for you, then you’ll like this bathroom!  The master bathroom pictured above, features a jacuzzi soaker tub that was on our clients must have list.  In order to fit this request into the bathroom, we were able to steal some space from the closet that backs up to it.  12×12 marble floor tiles with glass mosiac accents were installed throughout the bathroom and shower walls.   A new double sink vanity with granite counter-tops, brushed nickel faucets, and separate mirrors finish the transformation.

Whatever space you may have or not have :)… Contact Kolby Construction today to start your bathroom transformation.  Everyone should have an oasis to enjoy when they start the day, or when it comes to a close.

Home Renovation: Is your house ready to be the “after” photo?

Many people are deciding to stay in their current house and renovate instead of moving!  Moving costs, real estate fees, leaving the neighborhood you love are all great reasons to decide to renovate your existing home.

Check out out this before photo of an older run-down ranch home in a fabulous Smyrna, GA neighborhood.

In this project we completely renovated the interior and exterior of the home.  New roofing shingles, low-e double hung wood windows, board and batten siding, new front door.  The interior of the home was also transformed as we made the entire layout a new functional open concept floor plan. To see more interior photos check out the project page of our website.

The next project below had a larger budget, and that allowed for a second story addition to be constructed, as well as a 2-car garage.

In this project the newly constructed second floor added 2 new bedrooms, a bonus room, and a spacious bathroom.  The first floor was also re-configured to allow for a generous sized owner’s suite, a fabulous open kitchen-dining room, family room, and even a small office.

The exterior of the home features 3 craftsman style dormer with brackets and board and batten shutters.  The front porch adds character with the columns and copper roof.
