The idea of modern design changes greatly from decade to decade, so it was no surprise that the owner of this 1960s master bathroom was ready for an updated, more contemporary design. The team at Dallas-based Traver Construction was hired for the job. “What we started with was typical of uninspired 1960’s design,” explains Doug Traver, president of Traver Construction. “The original master suite layout had closets that were separated from the bathroom by an entry hall to the bedroom, producing awkward utilization.” The design solution fixed this problem by relocating the entry hall and connecting the closets to the bathroom. The bathroom’s floor plan was also rearranged to allow for an 8-by-8-foot window that overlooked the side yard and served as a centerpiece to the new design. Additional features of the new design include: floor-to-ceiling porcelain tile, cantilevered vanities, Caesarstone countertops, ebony-stained white oak flooring, flush mirrors and polished nickel plumbing fixtures, electrical fixtures and cabinet door hardware.
“By the very nature of contemporary design, great attention must be made to every detail because of its ultimate simplicity,” says Traver, who opened the award-winning, full-service residential remodeling company back in 1990. “In this project, great care was taken all along the way, from planning to framing to finishes to ensure that each element was located in the right spot for symmetry.”
