A SUMMERSET STORY | THE PRIMARY BATH

January 18, 2021

 

It’s 2021, and like many things to look forward to this week, the construction scene at Summerset has decidedly departed 2020 waving au revoir to caution tape and saying hello new chapter. Our crew is making significant progress, spaces are taking form and soon, visions transition to reality.  Next to debut in ‘A Summerset Story’, the most private of spaces, the primary bath.

Full transparency folks, no rhyme or reason to the sequence in which rooms are being shared, in similar approach to navigating life these days, let’s just roll with it, shall we? The 2nd floor (aka primary) bath – a room that will embody by far the greatest transformation from where it all started. (Lest you forget and need a walk down pre-reno memory lane, drop in here for a refresh of what the space looked like before – cramped, not the least bit cozy, all accentuated by that cringe-worthy infamous platform.)

Our expansion yielded considerably more space to allocate accordingly and yet, I’ve been dead set on the design of the bath be respectful to the remainder of the house, both in scale and sentiment. Original layout drawn up by the architect took a turn early on after a walk-through with our plumber, who quickly identified challenges given the age of the house, particularly pitch relative to location of key drainage points and a desire to minimize construction to other non-reno areas of the home. In creative collaboration, we re-dealt a winning deck for ourselves and have since been on a path to primary bath perfection.

I welcome you to check out some of my inspiration saved here and in the words of friend, mentor and purveyor of the perfect bath – Barbara Sallick, create an experience that’s meaningful for you.
