Hudson Remodeling recently completed a multi-room home remodel at a cute house in Bellingham that resulted in a new powder room, a conjoined master bedroom and office, an expanded master bathroom and improvements to the living room.
Let’s start with the bathrooms. To create the new powder room, we removed built-in cabinetry from the master bathroom and hallway. We removed the existing hardwood floor to install gorgeous black and white tiles with a pattern reminiscent of styles common in Spain and Portugal. The powder room got a new toilet and the original bathroom’s pedestal sink, installed against a background wall of crisp, gray subway tiles.
In the original bathroom, we created additional space by removing the brick chimney and expanding into the bedroom closet. We removed the existing white tile and laid down some radiant heating cable, above which we installed the same patterned tile from the new powder room. We connected the bathroom and bedroom with a new doorway, framing the wall just wide enough to accommodate the furnace venting that we moved out of the chimney. We slid the toilet back against the new wall and, on the other side, installed a length of cherry hardwood cabinets with Shaker-style doors and slab drawers. A new tall cherry linen cabinet was installed at one end to frame the Cambria quartz countertop with undermount sink. For a backsplash, we installed a coordinated length of tile in a gray-marbled basket-weave pattern. The chrome and stainless steel accents throughout the room — faucet, door handles, light fixtures and more — add elegance and tie together the honey-brown wood and patterned tile floor.
In the master bedroom, we moved a wall that had been dividing the space in two, using hardwood from the powder room to seamlessly patch the floor. We removed some built-in cabinetry from the bedroom and framed in a new closet (the old one was removed to make space for the bathroom). We also installed a new window in the bedroom, refinished the hardwood flooring there and in the hallway, and gave the walls and ceilings several fresh coats of paint. The result is a spacious new bedroom with adjoining master bathroom and office that makes much more functional sense.
Out in the living room, we installed a new wood fireplace mantel and retiled the hearth with a larger, darker tile that better matches the home’s existing style.
In the end, the homeowner was pleased with Hudson Remodeling’s ability to update the home with modern conveniences while retaining the house’s original character and style. Another successful Bellingham home renovation is in the books!
