Fargo, ND Bathroom Remodel Storyline
* This project was actually completed prior to the visioning of Engage. The project was shot with a blackberry phone so the visual interest in the final product photos is lacking.
This bathroom was attached to the Master Bedroom on the second level of the home.
The owners wanted to create a revitalized space that invigorated them as they started their morning. It was the space that would set their daily tone each and every day so we wanted to be sure we helped the client achieve their end goal as this was an important space considering the scope of the project. This project had a very distinct blue and silver wall paper that the client had removed prior to our arrival.
The client had selected some colors for the space and had given us some direction as to what they wanted to see in the space. They had also chosen flooring for the space and so we tried to balance all of the pre chosen elements with the end vision of the space the client wanted to achieve.
We chose a theme that somewhat complimented other areas of the home and fit with what the client was seeking. We chose to go with a beadboard plywood to mimic a traditional beadboard look at a much lower price point. We then topped the plywood with a custom chair rail where we utilized various components to gain visual interest. This also allowed us to preserve the natural wood of the vanity since this component would not be replaced again to minimize expense.
The client wanted a color combination that was invigorating & gave the space some visual "pop". We chose a vibrant red for the lower wainscott and a silky yellow sorbet color for the top wall area. We wanted to bring the red into the vanity area so that it tied in with the project as a whole. We found that if we wrapped the entire alcove in the red it became too heavy for the space and so we utilized the red only as an accent wall.
The client chose a ceramic tile that fit within their budget and we went to work maximizing the impact of the basic white porcelain tile. We selected a higher end accent tile, hand cut them into strips and placed them into place to create some additional visual interest for the space.
We selected a countertop material that would compliment the style of the pre purchased sinks. The countertops also needed to be something that would fit in with the rest of the project. So we chose a Wilsonart HD material that gave the project a very classical feel to it. This also created as durable finish as possible to make the clients choice last for many years. This material also mimicked the look of a more expensive quarry granite that the client had fallen in love with at a fraction of the price.
We finalized the shower space with a curved shower curtain rod that allowed additional space for the individual using the shower so that they did not have the enclosed feeling a standard straight rod sometimes creates.
The client finished off the project with their own toiletries, shower curtain, rugs and storage shelves.

Our Client Said...
Our clients were extremely pleased with the end product.
The found the space to be exactly how they wanted it to be and showed it off to family and friends. They had a neighbor who completed a $45,000 bathroom renovation and told us that they felt that there space was more inviting and attractive than that of their neighbors.
