Connie Troncale moved into her 1950s ranch home six years ago. She was drawn to the bright, airy house, which features a great patio in the backyard. She's never been satisfied with her bathroom and attached atrium, however, so she's hoping a professional designer can transform her least favorite room into a tranquil sanctuary she can enjoy.
After meeting with all the designers, Troncale chooses Linda Maglia as her designer. With a budget of $30,000, Maglia is challenged to create an organic, welcoming haven with an Asian touch. She creates a warm, soothing vision by enlarging the bathroom space by two feet. Removing the old closet and shower allows her to install cabinets above the toilet; a new linen closet goes opposite in the two feet gained from the bathroom. Dimmer lights create mood lighting while a solar tube allows for more natural light. The same honed slate from the sink countertop is used on the shower seat. Wall-mounted body sprays add a contemporary touch to the new shower; beautiful hardware adds elegance to the tub. A mantel above the bathtub displays some finishing decorative items. Finally, the makeup mirror, with task lighting above, is exactly what Connie wanted. Linda Maglia exceeded the expectations and designed a minimal, contemporary bathroom that is still warm and feminine.
Before the makeover this bathroom felt dark and cramped. Now the space is filled with natural light which lends to the warm and feminine style.
