We recently collaborated on a full house construction project in Austin Tx with BRB. I wanted to show a few of the differences between our designs in comparison to one of their other homes. I have focused primarily on the kitchen, the hall bathroom, and master bathroom. I will point out that this is not a remodeling project but a new home build that we got involved in at the early stages.
The first two pictures are of the master bathroom that we designed. The third picture is of the mirror image of the same bathroom in the home next door. First off we eliminated the tub in the master shower and centered the drain to create a large walk in shower. We added a free floating bench and a shampoo niche behind the pony wall next to the vanity. The shower valves in our bathroom are hidden on the left side. We also added a second shower head and a hand held. We opted for 16 x 32 tiles in our shower that are made of crushed quartz under glass in the master bathroom as well as the hall bathroom shower walls, this is an upgrade from the subway tiles used in the neighboring home. Instead of going with the grey large format tiles they usually use on the floor, we opted for 8 x 8 cement tile in the circulo pattern. For the bathroom counter top we switched from grey to snow white caesarstone.
We eliminated the large wall mirror and vanity lights and switched to two separate vanity mirrors with built in LED lighting and defroster. We also added 2 more can lights above each vanity for a more custom master bathroom.
We painted the walls a Colonial Grey and the vanity is Real Teal.
In the next set of pictures are the hall bathrooms. Ours is the one pictured above. You can see we used the same materials and colors as we did in the master bathroom. In their hall bath they went with a grey tile on the walls of the shower from Interceramic.
Kitchen Remodel / Design Austin. The next set of pictures highlight the upgrades we made in the kitchen of this Austin new home build. To start off with we went with a white Caesarstone waterfall countertop on the kitchen island.
Comparing the pictures of the two kitchens below, you can see how a few little differences in design, color, and materials makes a major difference in the feel of the room.
