Project: Marble Bathrooms and More! Full Bathroom, Powder Room, Fireplace Mantel Surround, and Wainscot Molding in Melrose, MA (AKA #ProjectMelroseMarbleBathroom)

Our clients came to us with a healthy list of renovations and upgrades they wanted to make to their colonial home in Melrose. After a few years in the home and already having made beautiful improvements to hardwood flooring and fixtures throughout, the second floor bathroom and first floor powder room were high on their list. They also wanted to add architectural interest with a new fireplace design (hearth, mantel, tile surround and glass doors), as well as wainscot molding in the first floor office and dining room.

Working within an overall budget and a do-it-all-at-once timeline, we improved functionality and aesthetics in the bathrooms with updated layouts and design schemes, and laid out mantel and molding details to ensure a smooth construction process. After sorting through the inevitable bumps and hiccups that occur during construction, our clients can now walk through their home admiring all of the beautiful and smart upgrades they have made, not least of which include serene, spa-like bathrooms.

Melrose Marble Bathroom Remodel Gray Vanity
The second floor bathroom received a full gut remodel to create space for a walk-in shower, remove the narrow pocket door, and reconfigure the crowded layout. We also gained space and functionality with a double sink vanity.
Melrose Marble Bathroom Remodel Custom Shower
The layout was reconfigured slightly by removing a small shower stall and replacing with a tall linen cabinet, and we replaced the alcove tub with a luxurious, custom walk-in shower complete with tiled bench, custom wall niche, showerhead and separate handshower.

The Honed Marble continues on the countertop and backsplash, and looks amazing on the light gray cabinetry! The reflection in the mirror gives a perfect view of the tall linen cabinet in the previous shower stall location.

Melrose Powder Room Remodel
We did a full gut remodel of the first floor powder room with all new fixtures and finishes. The sophisticated new design features a show-stopping navy blue three-drawer vanity accented with a champagne bronze faucet and hardware. We maximized the small space with an oversized mirror and flanking sconces centered on the main wall above the vanity and toilet.
