There were two challenges. A prior owner had done a pretty shoddy remodel home store quality. We had to back track through that work. Second there were two very large new windows which let in a lot of light but also removed one wall from the design possibilities.

A bathroom renovation is one of the most effective ways to increase or maintain the value of a home…provided its a high quality renovation. Sometimes the worst owner of a house is the last owner, especially if they had no passion for their renovation efforts. Either may have been the case with a 2400 square foot row house in affluent Woodley Park Washington DC. The house is located on Klingle Road NW. Woodley Park has an interesting history it was originally part of a 250 acre purchase made by the Uncle of Francis Scott Key. Yes that fellow who wrote the Star Spangle Banner. Of course there have been quite a few owners since the house was built in 1923. So we might not be able to blame the quality of prior bathroom renovations on the last owner.
The house was recently purchased in 2013 by a young professional couple working in the Nation’s Capital. Like so many buyers in the District of Columbia over the last decade they purchased a house that had been generally neglected for 4 decades. All across the Washington DC and its suburbs those dated 1980’s and pre 1980’s oak bathrooms have been or soon will be torn out and replaced with a modern 21st century style.
Signature Kitchens Additions & Baths of Rockville MD a design build remodeling company was approached by the owner to design and renovate the master bathroom. Senior designer Hamid Fadakar described the bathroom as “a dingy impractical space dominated by a soaking tub that basically soaked up all of the room. It was a bad remodel with shoddy workmanship.”
Hamid and the new owners tackled their bathroom renovation with great enthusiasm. The new bathroom design is layers of White Carrara Marble. The floor a classic Carrara and gray dot pattern over a Warmly Yours heated floor. The walls selected were MS International 12” by 24” slabs of Carrara marble laid horizontally with a tight grout line. Niches were added in the shower and a wall embellished with an Amba heated towel warmer. As the owner said “my baby simply loves being wrapped in a heated towel. It was a luxury but so worth it.” The shower was wrapped in a frameless glass doors. The vanity is a furniture piece within Dura Supreme Cabinetries Vanity Furniture offering. The counter top also Carrara was fabricated as banjo top covering the toilet and providing more counter top space. A large tri fold mirror was installed and then the abutting wall was mirrored to create very spacious feel with the reflection of all that marble. The decorative plumbing used in this beautiful bathroom renovation was Kohler Marguax.
