Transitional Bathroom Remodel in Wynnewood, PA
Location: Wynnewood, PA
Building type: Colonial
Renovation style: Transitional
This charming 1924 Colonial located in the quiet neighborhood of Wynnewood, PA presented the perfect opportunity for this growing Philadelphia family. The transition from the city into a more spacious residence in the Philadelphia suburbs was perfect decision to support their next stage of life with having ease of access to the city when desired. While they loved so many of the architectural and design features already present in their new home, they also wanted to place their own personal stamp of character on it -- that's where our design-build team comes in! For this Chichester Lane project, we added on a bathroom to the owner's suite as well as remodeling the kitchen and adjacent first-floor spaces.
Sprucing Up the Owner's Bathroom
The homeowners main goal for the primary suite addition was to add an entrance from their bedroom to the bathroom. When the family moved in, the entrance for the bathroom was in the hallway, which was less than optimal for daily living. Our main goal was to maximize the space on the upper floor, which included the bathroom, bedroom, and walk-in closet located in the owner’s suite.
Our design-build team provided solutions to both of these issues and reconfigured the space to enhance its function. Stephanie Hoffmeier, the designer for this project, is calling this a "galley-style bathroom." While galley-style is mostly used to describe kitchen layouts, this bathroom resembles a similar straight and narrow design.
After being presented with several sketches, drawings and renderings, the homeowners (and Stephanie) agreed this design option was the best. This layout not only left enough walking space in this smaller sized bathroom, but also allowed for his-and-her sinks and a large walk in shower which was a must for this couple.
As with their kitchen remodel, we installed new custom cabinetry from Tim Lewis Studio to elevate the overall bathroom aesthetic. For the bathroom vanities, we utilized remnants of the kitchen counters that were removed during the remodeling process. Then, we added elegant and functional vessel sinks. The whole design was topped off with a champagne bronze finish for the plumbing fixtures.
One of our favorite selections in this primary bathroom is the small hexagon shaped floor tile, which compliments the white wall subway tile ever so nicely. The light, mist green color gives this bathroom the perfect pop of color while also making it feel tranquil and spa-like.
