With so many different materials in the bathroom, Lee Kimball had to be careful to make sure that the room didn't end up looking like a "sample room," director of design E.J. Krupinsky says.  After photos by Edua Wilde Photography

Creating a Private Retreat



The clients for this master suite remodel by Lee Kimball were frequent travelers and wanted to recreate the spa-like feel they had encountered in the luxury hotels and resorts they frequent.

The original space consisted of a hallway, walk-in closet and the typical master bathroom you would find in an older home, with a simple tub, double sink and dated tile walls. The new bathroom features a double vanity with trough sink, a soaking tub and a steam shower. To capture additional space, the team pushed the bathroom out into the closet, then replaced the hallway with a dressing suite that incorporated closet space.

That dressing suite, with a floor of silk carpet, helps to make the transition from the public area of the home to the private retreat the clients wanted to create, says E.J. Krupinsky director of design.

Another challenge for the company was considering ecology along with luxury. The company tries to offer packages that include green features such as tankless water heaters and LED lighting. At the same time, they realize a project with multiple shower heads and other luxury features is not going to be overly green.

“It's not to the level of a LEED standard or anything like that, but we can take smaller steps that reduce the impact,” Krupinsky says.
