In viewing the space of the second floor and the master bedroom, KBDC Design Associate Kate Yurgelun, felt that the existing bathroom could be enlarged by taking over an adjoining closet space. Incorporating classic materials such as bright white wall tile combined with period looking hexagon floor tile similar to that used in other baths of the residence, Kate was able to give this space an ageless feel that blends easily with the home’s style.
The cabinets were kept simple, a painted Maple finish in Arctic White, with Quartz countertops, shower seat and threshold. Heated flooring, brushed nickel fixtures including a handheld shower head and slide bar bring this master bath up to 21st century standards. By taking over the closet area Kate was able to give this couple the beautiful shower space they desired. Rounding out the room is a pair of oil rubbed bronze light fixtures and barn doors that warm up the otherwise white space with old world charm.

In this first "behind the scenes" post are drawings of a kitchen designed for a couple who have a pair of really BIG dogs whose food/watering needs they wanted incorporated into the design. A dog owner myself, I love it when I get to design something for my four legged friends.

Our kitchen themed tree being donated
to a local church for their Festival of Trees
celebration coming up in December.
We're getting into the holiday spirit here at Kitchen & Bath Design + Construction. Participating in a Festival of Trees through one of the local churches in our community, we put together this cute little tree. Thinking outside the box, our tree features kitchen themed (of course) and traditional ornaments along with a few cookie cutters, like the angel cutter on the top. We are calling it "Kitchen Bling and Thingamajigs" and I really had fun putting it together. The tag line for the company is "it all falls into place..."and this tree certainly did. I will be decorating another smaller one for the showroom and am looking forward to that along with holiday baking, music, friends and all the get togethers that come with this time of year. I am so grateful for the many people who have come into my life, both as clients and as friends. Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving.

Our work was featured in the September issue of Hartford Magazine!
We featured this master bathroom in our blog, but it also recently appeared in an article by Nancy Schoeffler and was seen in the September issue of Hartford Magazine. Both KBDC owner, Lorey Cavanaugh and Design Associate Kate Yurgelun, were quoted. Read it via the link here to answer your questions on how to create a spa-like retreat in your own home. You might also want to jump over to our page on Houzz.com and see pictures of more master baths we have designed. They just might spark your creativity. What makes for a spa-like master bath? Trends discussed are installing larger floor tile, simplicity, removing the tub altogether in order to enlarge the shower, installing a glass shower surround and designing the space using a calming color scheme. Bring your ideas to life and call us to discuss your bathroom project. Dream, Design, Build!

They came to Kitchen & Bath Design + Construction desiring a lighter and airier look, well as addressing any underlying moisture issues. Our task was to determine and remedy the moisture problem and create a functional and beautiful space that matched the rest of this stately colonial home.

Painted cabinetry in a Shaker style bring a quiet stateliness, while crystal knobs add a touch of bling. To keep with the soft tones, we chose a large sized porcelain tile for the floor in a color called Linen, using the same tile on the shower walls. His and Hers vanities are topped by a lighter colored granite swirled with hues of cream, brown, and gray. Robe hooks on the tall cabinets near tub make for a quick grab of a towel and a rain shower head in the new glass shower enclosure makes for a truly invigorating shower.
