About our client

Park Ridge, Illinois

This family in Park Ridge found their forever home and was looking to make the final touches on it by renovating their primary suite.


The clients wanted a primary bathroom that represented their style with plenty of function. They wanted to maintain but renovate their steam shower. They’d love to add a sauna and it was important for them to get ample storage.


The existing tub needed to be gutted and the plumbing removed to make space for a new sauna. The steam shower unit needed to be replaced and the clients wanted to maintain a separate water closet while incorporating natural light.

Solution with results that paid off

After consulting with the clients and assessing their needs, our design team came up with a revised primary bathroom plan that best suited their needs.

To renovate the steam shower we proposed changing the unit and adding new plumbing fixtures. The clients chose a fun and balanced tile that best represented their style. We proposed a new bench with glass. We changed the water closet door to be a frosted glass to allow for natural light come in to the space even with the space was in use.

To create a sauna we proposed choosing a prefabricated unit that allowed the clients to customize with options they know they’d use. Removing the tub allowed for the sauna to be front and center in the new bathroom and balance the space. Choosing an angled entry sauna was best suited for the room and it is accented with functioning heated towel warmers.

To ensure the clients had ample storage we proposed a custom full height linen cabinet opposite the vanity. Keeping this full height brings your eye to the beautiful vaulted ceilings and allows for the most efficient storage. Creating wall to wall his and her vanities allowed for both countertop space and divided yet functional storage.

This primary bathroom renovation represents the clients style and their love for relaxation. We are so happy we got to be a part of their process.
