FROM BLAH TO SPA
A master bath makeover with Siteline
How many of us get to say we have the bathroom of our dreams? Carla Moman, business solutions manager for Siteline Cabinetry gets to say that every day, since she and husband Tim recently remodeled their Indianapolis master bath, featuring what else – Siteline cabinets and storage.
Carla tells us, “The look is exactly what I wanted.” She adds, “Our condo is already extremely contemporary and we wanted the master bathroom to be an extension of the space.
“We really wanted the spa-like retreat for our master, which so many buyers want.”
She’s right about that – according to Domino magazine, “Bathrooms are no longer purely functional; they are meant to reflect personal style and flow seamlessly with the rest of the house. Luxury hotel-style ‘spa baths’ full of light neutrals and minimal lines, while still popular, are no longer the only trend. Bathrooms are now a laboratory for bold design—a great place to let your personality shine.”
“When we first purchased our condo, I had always known we were going to renovate the master bath, as it really didn’t fit the rest of the space,” notes Carla.
“I really had to sweet talk my husband since we had never gone through a remodel before.”
Carla and Tim started their search for bath remodeling inspiration like many of us do – by letting our fingers do the walking through social media.
Carla comments, “I was originally inspired by the Stone Grey glass insert when Siteline was first launched.” She continues, “I previously had two white Thermofoil particle board cabinets with a knee drawer in the middle.
“I only had two drawers and little cabinet storage underneath the sinks. I needed to have a space to allow for all the little things that a bathroom could hold. I don’t like baskets or mini makeup bags so having built-in dividers inside the drawers were extremely important to me.
“We were always going to keep the original tile work and flooring to keep costs down, so blending in the new materials with the existing materials was a huge deal. Since the bathroom had no natural light or windows, it was a very dark space, even during daytime. We decided to go for a lighter paint for the walls, and add more mirrors to reflect the natural light source coming from our bedroom.”
Carla and Tim selected a “floating” style vanity design featuring Siteline Reski metal doors, which have a low profile frame in a bright Aluminum finish and Stone Grey acrylic inserts. Designer note: Stone Grey is a grey-beige color, which is a very popular neutral for today’s kitchens and baths.
