Getting A Space from “Hate” to


Ever since moving into their house, these Palatine clients hated their master bathroom. They wanted a space where they could let the stress of the day melt away. Instead, they were met with a hotel-style layout that was disruptive and disjointed. The sink and vanity were located outside the space containing the toilet and shower. Getting ready turned into a stressful, guilt-inducing chore since one person’s midnight bathroom break or early morning would disrupt the sleep of the other. Our clients needed a master bath that could be guiltlessly used around the clock by containing the space altogether in one room. The closets presented another functional challenge. Previously, there were three separated, accordion door closets that didn’t offer the variation and use of space our clients desired.

After seeing their new design, our clients finally found the suburban oasis they had been dreaming of and eagerly entered the selection phase where they fell in love with the warm grey palette our team encouraged. And their feline friend? Let's just say he might enjoy the heated tile floors even more than his mom and dad!

“Everyone who helped us was wonderful. We appreciated the help with the ideas and suggestions for our project and were very happy with the results. Tammy and Sarah were very helpful and great to work with. We are also happy with the pace of the project and being informed of the plans of when people would be here. Thank you, Jeff. I have referred people to OHi already.”

What Will Your Bathroom Cost to Remodel?

The Shower and Toilet

Before: The toilet and shower were huddled together in a cramped, style-less room. The framed shower lacked enough ledge space to hold the clients’ shower care products, and there was nowhere to hang towels. Overall, the room simply existed for basic function without any thought of design.

After: An expanded, frameless shower with a half-wall takes the place of the previously-dated installment. The intricately weaved tile pattern is a showstopper in craftsmanship, and nicely complements the niche, thoughtfully  added to shelf every shower product. A gorgeous towel rack, hand picked by our designer, keeps the towels contained, while also acting as a statement piece. 

The Vanity

Before: Originally, the vanity functioned as a necessary evil that intruded on the comfort and design of our clients’ master bedroom. The sink and vanity were located outside the walls of the toilet and shower, making a morning routine impossible with disturbing the other person in the room.

After: A door no longer separates the vanity and sink from the rest of the bathroom. Instead, the shower, vanity, and toilet work together to create a functional space. While our clients had no desire for a double sink, they did wish for the storage found in an extended vanity. Our designer met that need, but recognized that a standard vanity would create a cramped intersection near the shower entrance, toilet and vanity corner. Therefore, she created a custom shape to reinforce the open, airy space of the layout. 

The Closet

Before: While three closets existed, offering plenty of space, the accordion doors made it difficult to fully utilize all the storage.

After: Their customized closet provides versatility in regard to the way clothes could be hung, folded, or stored. Now there is a proper space for every type of clothing item and shoe. The open concept allows for it to feel more spacious and unified.
