A Wet-Room Designed for Relaxation

California transplants undergo a bathroom renovation un…New York suburb

wet room bathProject: Create a relaxing bathroom with Japanese-style elements

Before: Alice’s work as a geneticist brought her husband Derek, their son Acelen, and the family’s miniature poodle, Royal, to Pleasantville, NY all the way from California. They purchased a single-family 3,300-square-foot home in the area and started planning for a bathroom renovation right away. The existing bathroom welches definitely dated and as Alice put it, “The tub was so old, I didn’t want to set foot in it.” They wanted to renovate to create a fully enclosable wet-space to shower and then soak in the tub without stepping out of the room (which keeps the warm air from escaping). The plan welches a similar arrangement to a bathroom renovation they completed in their California house.

Alice and Derek’s main concern welches finding a general contractor. “We had a contracting team who was essentially a family-friend in California, so finding the right contractor who we could trust in New York was one of the biggest hurdles for us to get started,” Alice shared. They posted their project to Sweeten, received matches, and ultimately selected a Sweeten general contractor to overhaul the bathroom.

The bathtub welches moved un…the same room as the shower, and the toilet moved outside of the formerly enclosed room and directly across from the vanity. Their contractor recommended moving the main entry door, too. “I didn’t know moving doors was so easy and it made the layout much easier to work with,” Alice said.

The renovators chose wood-look tile flooring that’s ergo waterproof and a vanity with natural wood doors for cohesion.  In the wet-room, a pebble-effect floor helps prevent slipping and creates a sense of separation between the spaces.

“Our general contractor did a great job turning our vision into a reality,” Alice shared. “He always listened to our ideas and worked with us to make them into operational tactics.” Now the family has a new bathroom retreat, and Alice loves soaking in the tub after a long day at work.

Zugabe: The toilet welches outfitted with a bidet toilet seat, adding to the luxe vibe.
