Here’s an example of a large Cleveland Heights, OH, home that needed a total refresh to make it welcoming for the homeowners, two physicians with extremely busy schedules.
The clients purchased the house with an existing master suite complete with large walk-in closet, master bedroom and master bathroom. But, these spaces were all clad in a very depressing light gray color. All the cabinetry was clad in light gray plastic laminate and the tile in the bathroom was all light gray as well. This did not make for a welcome respite at home after a full shift working at the hospital.
Thus, the owners were looking for a new master suite that would be warm and inviting to spend time and relax in, yet contemporary in design with clean-lined detailing.
The creative design came to life through a collaborative working relationship with the client. Harmoni Designs managed every step of the design and construction process including design, interior material selections, contractor bidding and construction management (functioning like a general contractor).
The natural woodwork was designed to be the main focal point of each room while adding warmth, rich texture and quality workmanship. The interior materials and finishes were selected to complement the beautiful woodwork that was custom-made for the project. The natural woodwork in the master bedroom and walk-in closet brings light and color resulting in a comfortable and interesting space accented by the owners’ artwork.
The master bathroom was designed to provide the homeowners with a peaceful space to relax and unwind after a busy day. The plumbing fixtures throughout the entire master bathroom are all high-end Kohler fixtures — carefully selected to provide the clients with a spa-like bathing experience. This was accomplished by installing an infinity edge soaking tub and a multi-functional shower area.
The end result is an original, stunning master suite that reflects the clients’ personality and provides a harmonious living space to balance their otherwise hectic careers.
