This project was incredibly special to work on, because I actually had the pleasure of working with this client three years ago on her last home! This family decided to move from Lincoln Park to the Western Suburbs and needed to make some updates to their new house in order to make it work for them.
Obviously the biggest (and most enjoyable) change for them, was that the new house was so much bigger than their home in the city! We helped set up a formal dining room, a sun-filled family room and a true master suite by combining the guest room and master bedroom, allowing us to create a walk-in closet and a much larger master bathroom.
THE DESIGN PROCESS
The first challenge was figuring out how to reconfigure the master bedroom to create a larger bathroom and a true walk-in closet. We achieved this by merging the two bedrooms, shifting back the entry to the bedroom and turning the existing bedroom into a closet. We then merged one of the existing closets with the bathroom to create a larger bathroom where we’re able to fit a larger walk-in shower and a double vanity.
The only thing more enjoyable than working with a wonderful client is getting to work with them twice! I’m so happy this family found their perfect home in the suburbs and can’t wait to see how they enjoy and grow in it over the years to come!
