The homeowner of this Best Project Under $200,000 bathroom renovation is a successful fashion designer in Potomac, Md. and extremely wanted this space to represent her one-of-kind, fashion-forward persona. Landis Construction, Washington, D.C., creatively designed an “outdoor-like” bathroom complete with water features, river stones and an abundance of natural light.

Part of a larger project, the 40- by 10-ft. one-story addition was added on the north side of the existing bedroom suite. The floor plan was reconfigured so that the original bathroom became a luxurious walk-in closet.

The focal point of the new bathroom is a massive water fountain that features quiet or audible water flows that allow the owners to enjoy it from either their bedroom or their bathroom. Opposite the fountain, the shower space was designed with river stones on the floor, a large window over the shower bench and stone and glass on the walls to keep with the outdoor theme.

Also, the high windows above the vanity elevation, shower window and the two large skylights invite the sun to create different moods, depending upon the time of day and weather conditions.

Additional design elements include starlight LED lighting above the shower, electric floor heating zones and custom cabinetry, including integrated storage niches left and right of the sinks.

When the project was complete, the homeowner wrote, “I would say people’s jaws drop when they see the place.”

Landis Construction adds, “Within our firm, we are particularly proud of this bathroom because the space elicits a unique range of emotions. This Zen-like feeling that it creates is easily perceptible.”
