"My Own Little Spa" Remodel in Eagan

"I don't worry about my bathroom anymore. I don't hate taking a shower anymore. I love going into my bathroom. It makes me feel like I've walked into my very own little spa, and makes me very grateful".

Enlarged shower footprint makes this remodel work

Project Summary 

Homes 25 years or older often have minor mold issues to complicate whatever functionality and outdated issues need addressing. That was certainly the case in this Eagan master suite remodel that screamed “Tear me apart and put me back together so I work!” 

So that’s what we did.  After addressing the mold issues we shortened the vanity footprint, added that space to an enlarged low-threshold shower with a bench seat, and moved a lot of the storage needs to new cabinets in an adjacent properly enclosed water closet with a door. The tile work was extensive and really made a statement of luxury.  New warm LVP flooring finished the aesthetic and livability upgrades. 

The challenge in working with existing materials, such as oak doors, in a space that is going to change dramatically, is finding ways to incorporate them with the right balance.  So, we replaced all the doors and floating shelves with an upgraded oak in the same tone, which worked in harmony with the taupes and grays we chose for the rest of the bathroom space.

As the homeowner put it, "I'm grateful for Murphy Brothers as a whole, for the work that they did to help make what I thought was my vision even better."
