MyHome, the New York City Home Remodeling Contractor, recently completed a multi-bathroom renovation project at 140 West End Ave in Lincoln Square. The project was designed by Senior MyHome Remodeling Consultant, Ben Pitt. Pitt and his team were tasked with completely transforming two outdated bathrooms in need of complete aesthetic enhancement.
When our client expressed a need for a walk-in shower stall to replace the tub in his master, MyHome was there to help execute his vision. Beyond that, the client asked for an up-to-date contemporary look in the second bathroom. The ideal design would incorporate a shower niche with accent lighting, floating vanities, and additional storage.
Pitt worked closely with Project Manager, Rafael Parra to bring the vision to life. For both bathrooms, the team spec’d out sleek, solid-body, ceiling height porcelain tiles from American Olean and Porcelanosa. In the hall bath, a 1-piece sink top with a deck mount faucet accented the glass white lacquered vanity. The same vanity was used in the master bath. This time, the vanity was accompanied by a custom Caesarstone quartz-composite banjo-shaped counter with a wall-mount faucet. Painting the master bath ceiling Thunder Grey by Sherwin Williams tied in the design and gave the space a unique flair.
Porcelanosa polished chrome plumbing fixtures and accessories accented the bathrooms including towel shelves from Ginger Bath for additional storage. Instead of wall-to-wall glass enclosures, the team installed Fleurco splash guards featuring fixed panels with flaps. This, along with large 48” length LED sconces, helped maintain an open and bright feel in both bathrooms.
Some of the challenges in the bathrooms were installing a high-end shower niche with lighting and finding the right toilet to match the design. There are limitations on water-resistant recessed niche lights, but Pitt and the team found a great company, Aspect LED, which offered many options. Finding a modern, round-front shallow depth toilet that fit the style was also a challenge. Thankfully, Fresca offered a look that complimented the high-end design.
