Kunz Bathroom Remodel

One of the greatest couples on this earth we referred to us by our dear Ohana, Miranda.  Her parents needed to make the bathroom in their 1920's bungalow more usable and create a better layout for their current lifestyle.  After some time walking through the cute tiny little home, the wheels started spinning and we both went to work coming up with a more modern plan that was still true to the 20's style of the bathroom.  I am so excited that Todd and I get to live out our dream of working together on a project like this!

Here are the before pictures:

 The bathtub was an old clawfoot tub that had been tiled over.  Notice where the towel rack is.  Because in the after pictures, it is no longer there.  Behind that wall is a closet that Todd tore out to create space for the new vanity.

That is it.  That is all there was to this cute little bathroom.  Believe it or not, that one bathroom was all that a family of five had for years!!!

A few weeks of hard labor (Todd did all of the work with intermitent help by family members...I learned how to use a tile saw and lay tile!  Yeah!!!) and this is the end result:
 You no longer walk into the vanity, and the old tile was chiseled out, the bathtub removed and a shower with a bench and classic white subway tile was installed.

 Custom shelving, pedestal sink and pull out base cabinets with some spiffy accent lighting!

 The family are HUGE Yankee fans, so we made sure that we kept some of their favorite memorabilia was tastefully displayed.

 Ah!  A nice place to sit after a long day at work.

As a little addition to the project, Todd took out a hall closet and plumbed, wired and ventilated it for a stackable washer and dryer.  No longer needing to go up and down the stairs to do laundry!  The homeowners were so grateful and excited for the finished result.

We love you Sandy & Lyle!!!  Thanks for trusting UL Studios with this remodel.
