The Huntings’ Master Bath Remodel

The Huntings built their dream house in Franklin back in the early 1990s. After nearly 30 years, their beloved home looked more dated than dreamy. That’s when they decided to hire Hatchett to give their home a much needed make-over by remodeling the kitchen, sunroom and master bath.

Shower with Glass Enclosure
Even though the bathroom looked old and out-dated, the layout worked well for them. Without changing the footprint, Jessica’s design completely transformed their bathroom into a luxurious, spa-like space.
Hunting Master Bath Before & After
Their original shower was enclosed by walls. By replacing the shower with a frameless glass enclosure, the bathroom appears significantly larger. It also allows the natural light from the window over the tub to spill into the room.

Freestanding Tub
The new freestanding tub takes up less floor space than the old built-in model. The fixtures are mounted in a ledge behind the tub which also provides shelf space for toiletries, towels and decor.

Vanities & Mirrors
The new double vanities are white, which helps make their bathroom look larger. White and light-colored cabinets and walls reflect light, thereby creating the illusion of a bigger space. While the design of the vanities looks very similar, the new vanities offer more drawer space than the original ones. For bathroom storage, drawers often prove to be more functional than cabinets.

To maximize their bathroom storage, we replaced the old tiny medicine cabinets with Robern Uplift Mirrors from Ferguson. When the mirrors glide upward, hidden medicine cabinet storage is revealed. The built-in lights turn on automatically.

Client Feedback
As you might imagine, the Huntings are ecstatic with their new master bathroom, so we asked them to share some information about their remodeling experience with Hatchett.

What is your favorite part of your remodel?

We are enjoying our newly remodeled home. The glass shower is our favorite feature in the bathroom. Everything looks clean and organized.

Why did you choose Hatchett Design Remodel?

We first heard about Hatchett at a home show in Virginia Beach a few years ago where we met Kevin. When we were ready for our remodel, we called Kevin. We chose Hatchett, because you could provide all of the resources to cover the architectural and structural aspects of the project along with the design and construction.

What is your advice to other homeowners planning to remodel?

Our advice is to be as specific and detailed as possible with the goals of your project. Then you have to be realistic with the budget and schedule estimates.

After completing the kitchen, sunroom and bathroom remodel, we asked the Huntings how they felt about the whole experience.

Our house remodel turned out just as we planned and hoped it would. We would definitely use Hatchett again.

Patel Kitchen Remodel

The Patels came to Hatchett with specific remodeling goals for their home in Chesapeake, but they needed our help to bring their new kitchen to life. They shared their wish list with our design team during the initial consultation. They wanted to brighten up the space by removing the dining room wall and adding a window to the side of the house. They wanted to remove their current kitchen peninsula and install a larger island. And lastly, Mrs. Patel had a collection of elephant designed tiles that she wanted incorporated into the backsplash.
Patel Kitchen BEFORE
In order to make their new kitchen footprint as efficient as possible, Ashley relocated the sink and dishwasher to the Patel’s new kitchen island. Then she replaced the traditional range with a cooktop and a French door wall oven to make it easier for them to access the oven.
Patel Kitchen AFTER
The Ultracraft cabinets are shaker style, made from maple wood and painted arctic white. Replacing the dark kitchen cabinets with white ones brightens the space and bounces the natural light from the new window. To complement the light fixtures, Ashley chose crystal hardware from Top Knobs for cabinets.
White subway tiles accentuate Mrs. Patel’s elephant tiles, and the Cambria Quartz Windermere tops complete the look.

Lastly, we installed GE Cafe Appliances (including that awesome French door oven) and hardwood floors throughout the entire downstairs.

Great job, team! Special shout out to Kevin (Remodel Consultant), Kent (Project Manager), Ashley (Designer) and the entire crew who transformed the Patel’s kitchen.
