Armed with an eye-for design and plenty of ideas, homeowner McKenzie Swihart connected with ACo Design + Sales Consultant Kayley Vargo to turn her builder-grade master bathroom into something spectacular. Creating a more functional space, adding a nice soaking tub and more open shower were at the top of the priority list along with making it a luxurious, inviting space that reflected the homeowner’s personality.
It all started with a layout that just didn’t work for Swihart and her vision, and building codes presented extra problems. The solution was to relocate the bathroom’s entry and flip flop the entire bathroom set up. With a new floorplan ready to go, it was time to look to the design elements.
Taking inspiration from a tapestry Swihart had hanging in her existing bathroom, Vargo helped her create a warm, cozy atmosphere that makes a statement. The wet room is eye candy with a gorgeous green accent tile that stands out against the bright white tile on the adjoining walls and floor, while pops of gold from the finishes add character. The custom vanity with cane inserts bring a natural texture and warmth to the space in a way that has become increasingly popular. Full-length mirrors above the vanity take advantage of the high-ceilings in the space, adding drama without being overwhelming.
“I majored in Interior Design in college, so you could say that I am a bit more particular than most clients would be,” says Swihart. “But I can say with great conviction, ACo is top notch. Not only did they help me transform my builder grade bathroom into a stunning showpiece, but they were also just flat out amazing people to work with.”
