Some projects entail upgrading the aesthetic of a space, not the function. For this project I was hired to redesign the master bathroom, which I did to my client's liking. However, I did point out that they could enhance the look of the builder grade stair design by replacing the carpet with wood treads and adding a decorative railing. So they chose to have that done. The result is beautiful.
It is not the size of a home or the stuff in the home that matters. What really matters it how the space is used, and if the “stuff” has meaning, importance, or serves a purpose. People often get caught up in making homes bigger than they need. Typically homeowners want more than their budget can afford and size does have an impact on budget. Budget defines scope, and scope defines costs.
This is a project that kept the fixture locations since the space was limited. All of the finishes and fixtures were upgraded to be a current style. Safety features included several attractive grab bars placed thoughtfully to accommodate an aging client.
