6 Designer Top Picks – Signature Hardware

The Signature Hardware collection was the subject of a training session that Hatchett Design Remodel‘s design team recently attended. After the training session, we asked the designers to share their favorite fixture and tell us why they love it.  These are their 6 top picks.

Allison: Kitchen Faucet
Allison’s favorite fixture from the Signature Hardware collection is the Beasley Faucet. She says, “it is ergonomically stylish and perfect for any trendsetter.” With a traditional, slim body, it’s curve appeal gives it a more contemporary aesthetic. She recommends it to our clients, because it is versatile, sleek and classy. This faucet will add flavour to your kitchen!

Katie: Bathroom Faucet
Katie loves the whole Signature Hardware collection, but when forced to pick a favorite, she chose the Greyfield widespread bathroom sink faucet in brushed gold. As she told us, “I love that it mixes a modern feel with traditional elements to make it very classic & timeless.” We recommend this piece for any client who wants to make a statement in their bathroom.

Tara: Bathroom Vanity
Tara selected the Manolin vanity as one of her favorite pieces from the Signature Hardware collection, because “I love it’s Mid Century vibe. It makes it to get a great looking cabinet for your bathroom!”

Jessica: Freestanding Tub
The Kateryn Cast Iron Skirt Tub in Pacific Night is Jessica’s current favorite piece from Signature Hardware. Navy is her favorite color, and the contrast with the white interior makes this tub very striking. The style of this model is timeless with just a touch of modern appeal. She added, “I think it would be the star of any bathroom!”

Eileen: Bathroom Vanity
What’s not to love about Eileen’s favorite piece, the Bisbee console vanity? She admits that she’s a sucker for anything green, and everybody loves storage space in their bathroom. The Bisbee console vanity gives you both! Storage is always highly desirable, especially in small bathrooms. This modern, colorful vanity is stunning while providing both visible and hidden storage.

Stacia: Kitchen Faucet
Stacia’s favorite Signature Hardware item is the Caribana Kitchen Faucet in Brushed Gold. This two-tone faucet will add WOW-factor to your kitchen without being overbearing. As she explains, “This faucet has an eye-catching, elegant look that makes a great focal point in the kitchen.” It also provides the flexibility of using matte black, brushed gold, or both types of finishes throughout the rest of the kitchen design.

5 Features of a Classic Master Bath

For decades, the Trevillians have enjoyed living in the home they built. As the years passed, however, their once brand new home became out-dated. That’s why the Trevillians reached out to Hatchett Design Remodel to give their master bath a much needed make-over and design a classic master bath.

Mrs. Trevillian wanted her master bathroom remodeled in a classic design that will stand the test of time. Our design team was up for the job, and we made sure to include the 5 features that ensure the longevity of a classic master bath.

Subway Tile
White subway tile is and will always be a classic. The clean lines of these rectangular tiles create a classic look on the walls of their walk-in shower. The Trevillians opted for a modern twist on these traditional look by choosing 3×12 tiles and dark grout that accentuates each tile.

Marble-Look Quartz Countertops
Marble is the ultimate classic, but it’s a little high maintenance to have in your bathroom. That’s what makes MSI Q Quartz Calacatta Extra a great alternative. It offers that classic marble look without the fuss. Their previous vanity also had split levels which proved to be limiting, so Mrs. Trevillian requested that we make the countertops all one height to increase her usable counter space in their new classic master bath.
Nickel Fixtures
We chose polished nickel fixtures throughout the bathroom from the pulls, shower doors and light fixtures to the faucets in the shower, tub and sink. In recent years, the trend of mixing metals has emerged, but we opted to use the same finish on all the fixtures for the sake of creating a classic master bath. The gray tone of the nickel is soft and airy, and it also complements the veining in the marble-look quartz tops. The shiny finish of the polished nickel reflects light and contributes to the overall brightness of the space. The plumbing fixtures are all from the Kohler Bancroft Collection and provide a bit of nostalgia in this classically designed master bath.

Shaker Door Style
The Shaker door style is one of the most classic and versatile door styles you can choose. The simplicity of this style creates clean, crisp lines that echo that of the subway tile. And whether you’re going for a casual or elegant look, the Shaker door style delivers!

Free-standing Tub
Built-in jetted tubs are large and cumbersome. A free-standing soaking tub is a classic alternative. In the Trevillians’ remodel, we were able to open up a significant amount of floor space by replacing the old, clunky tub with this vintage-inspired one. Removing the surrounding step not only freed up space, but it makes their bathroom safer for them to access the shower and tub if they choose to stay in their home after retirement and age in place.
The Trevillians now have a classically beautiful master bathroom that they will enjoy for many, many years to come. When we asked Mrs. Trevillians which feature is her favorite, but she was stumped and said, “everything is my favorite!”

Puckett Bathroom Remodel

As a family business for over 60 years, Hatchett Design Remodel is honored when our friends and family choose us for their home remodels. Life long family friends reached out to Jessica recently when they decided to remodel their home in Williamsburg. Jessica’s always excited to tackle a new project, but this one was extra special since she describes the Mr. and Mrs. Puckett as her “second parents.”

The Pucketts asked Jessica to remodel two of their bathrooms – the master bath and the main guest bathroom on the first floor. The goal for both spaces was to update the style as well as increasing the functionality of the space.

Master Bathroom
Jessica’s bathroom design for the Puckett’s master suite includes a large shower, a vanity with added storage and a new walk-in closet. The white cabinets from Mantra‘s collection are topped with MSI Carrara Morror quartz countertops.
For the floor in the master bathroom, they chose Lumbar Natural plank tiles from Mosaic Tile. For contrast, we used lighter colored tiles in the shower. The walls of the shower are covered in Olympia Gris tiles, and the floor is made of Colorblox Slinky tiles.
The finishing touches include polished nickel fixtures from Kohler’s Bancroft collection and polished nickel “Replay Sconces” by Progress Lighting.

Guest Bathroom
The bathroom on the first floor is the main one used by their guests. While they wanted this bathroom to be functional as well, they also wanted it to be more formal for guest use. Jessica’s design for this space did not change the square footage, yet she was able to make this bathroom feel larger than it was before. First, we removed the soffit above the shower so that the wall stretches all the way to the ceiling which pulls the eye up. Then, we used a frameless glass enclosure for the shower which visually opens the space while still providing a necessary water barrier.

To accomplish the formal look the Pucketts requested, Jessica recommended the Rejuvination Warrenton Single Vanity. It’s a furniture style vanity in a rich wood tone with a marble top.

The floor tile, Marvel Calcacatta Extra Herringbone by Mosaic Tile, was chosen to complement their beautiful new marble tops. We used the same shower tile from the master in the guest bathroom. Then finished the space with polished nickel fixtures. The vanity faucet is a Moen Wynford widespread faucet, and the Pearson shade sconces are from Pottery Barn.

Kitchen & Bathroom Tile

Quality craftsmanship is one of the reasons homeowners choose Hatchett Design Remodel. To ensure the quality of our craftsmanship, we rely on quality products from our elite group of vendors. Mosaic Tile in Virginia Beach is one of our trusted partners, and here’s why.

About Mosaic Tile Co.

Founded in 1972, Mosaic Tile is a long-standing and well-respected tile company in Hampton Roads. They have spent decades establishing relationships with suppliers and manufacturers around the globe in order to make a vast selection of high-end tiles readily available to our community.

With a wide array of styles, colors and materials, our designers feel like kids in a candy store in Mosaic’s showroom. Whatever the design calls for, we are sure to find exactly what we need at Mosaic Tile.

In the Bathroom

Tile is arguably one of the most fun aspects of a design, because it brings so much character and personality to a space. By adding color, texture and visual interest to remodeled kitchens and bathrooms, it is often the main feature that pulls the eye through the room.

In the Burke bathroom remodel, for example, we incorporated a deco strip to add visual interest to the pattern.

We used Motion Ivory 12″x24″ tiles installed in an offset pattern, then added a decorative strip in the shower and along the tub deck. These beautiful Beach Linear tiles are from Mosaic’s Element collection.

We also used tile decos in the Titcombs’ master bath in both the shower and around the vanity sink. Here we installed Sienna Blanco 12″x12″ tiles in a straight pattern with two decorative strips made from Mosaic’s Elements Stacked deco tiles. We lined the inset shelves with the stacked tile as well.

The same deco strip was then placed around the vanity countertop as a backsplash. This design choice helps to pull both sides of the bathroom together.

In the Kitchen

Tile in a kitchen backsplash is an opportunity to introduce color. Often times, homeowners like choosing white or neutral colored cabinets for the sake of longevity. Relatively speaking, tile is an easy and affordable element to rip out and replace if you ever want to give your kitchen a new look. This fact gives folks a little freedom to have some fun with their backsplash.

The DuBois kitchen is a great example of a classically white kitchen with a gentle splash of color from the tile backsplash. They chose Icelandic Blue Crystal glass subway tiles. These measure 4″x12″ for a modern twist on the traditional 3″x6″ subway dimensions.

Even if you prefer a clean, all white palette for your kitchen, tile adds dimension to the space by introducing a new texture. This is true in the Hasty’s pure white kitchen. These SomerTile Beveled Arabesque tiles are a classic shape. For a modern take that accentuates that shape, we used Silverado Gray grout for contrast.

The options and combinations are endless, but one thing’s for sure… Mosaic Tile is an excellent choice for your kitchen and bathroom remodel at Hatchett.
