Transforming a Space with a Dream Bathroom Remodel Project

Starting a new chapter of life in semi-retirement, a couple in Elburn sought to transform their home, tailoring it for their evolving needs and dreams. With grown children and a desire for sanctuary, they turned to Ken Spears Construction to bring their vision to life with a bathroom remodel project. By partnering with our bathroom remodeling specialists, they achieved a look that better suited their style.


They were dissatisfied with their primary bathroom. The finishes were outdated, and the peculiar layout was inconvenient. The vanity was open to the bedroom and felt misplaced. 

They wanted a more cohesive and practical design, creating a space combining the vanity, toilet, and shower, providing functionality and privacy. To achieve this, the existing wall between the bedroom and bathroom needed to be extended, which required careful planning, including the relocation of an existing window.

Challenges for the Homeowner 

The master bathroom needed more than just aesthetic upgrades; our clients wanted to enhance their daily living. They were unhappy with the open vanity that blurred the lines between their private spaces and wanted more privacy, so they wanted to enclose the once-exposed vanity area, creating a distinct separation between their bedroom and the bathroom. They also wanted to remove the existing wall that awkwardly divided the toilet from the vanity. 

This would give them a seamless flow where each element of the space would complement the next for unity and functionality. They wanted privacy and comfort, and modern design converged seamlessly. 

How We Helped Them Reach Their Objectives

After an in-home consultation, our team meticulously planned a space that would redefine the bathroom. We removed the restrictive wall between the vanity and toilet, a task that required careful demolition and structural adjustments to seamlessly blend the two areas. Next, we extended the existing wall between the bedroom and bathroom, enclosing the vanity for added privacy and relocating an existing window into the bedroom area. 

This enhanced natural light while preserving privacy within the newly defined bathroom space. The result was a seamless transition between rooms, and our clients can now enjoy a bathroom that feels expansive, cohesive, and tailored to their specific needs.

Design Elements Used

Every element of the newly remodeled bathroom was chosen to harmonize function with style, creating a space that is as practical as it is visually stunning. The focal point of the vanity area was the Hansgrohe chrome lavatory faucet, its sleek lines and polished finish adding contemporary sophistication. Paired with the Kohler Ladena lavatory sink, the ensemble is timelessly elegant, completing the space’s clean lines and modern aesthetic.

Moving to the shower, the Kohler Bancroft shower fixtures in chrome gleam against the  AKDO Essential Cloud shower wall tiles. The interplay of textures and shades offers depth and luxury, along with the AKDO Carrara Bella brick mosaic accent tiles. The shower floor features Daltile’s Color Wheel Hex Desert Gray tiles, which offer durability. 

These details add visual interest and blend classic and contemporary design. The bathroom floor features Interceramic’s Tartan Cliff Gray tiles; their large format and neutral hue tie the entire space together. Each carefully selected element contributes to a tranquil and refined primary bathroom, marrying luxury and practicality.
