Master Bathroom Update in Olathe, KS

Master After 1

Mauve was all the rage in the late 1980s when the clients of Arlene Ladegaard, founder and principal designer at Design Connections, Inc., built this custom home in the suburb of Olathe, Kan. Although a master bedroom on the first floor seemed unusual at the time, it turned out to be just the ticket for the clients. With its beautiful acreage surrounding the home, our clients had decided to stay there as they aged.

The master bathroom was desperate for an update. Mold grew in the shower and that required swift action to eliminate. The clients wanted to replace the tub with a larger shower with clean Euro glass doors. The vanity with a makeup area received freshly painted cabinets with updated interiors and a plug-in area for a blow dryer, and the client loved the new perfume cabinet to store her collection.

Because the clients were graduates of Kansas State University where the school colors are purple and silver, they asked for purple touches in the master bathroom. Arlene and her design team complied with taupe 4”by 18” tiles placed vertically and accented by purple glass mosaics in the built-in shampoo shelves, as well as in the back splash above the Cambria Quartz countertops. A heated floor with 12” by 24” textured tiles gave an updated look to the space that would also be inviting on a cold winter morning.

Arlene enjoyed seeing her clients’ pleasure with the project, particularly with the Kansas State colors woven into the design. She oversaw every detail from the design phase to the installation of the last towel and a robe hook. The project took eight weeks to complete.

Design Connection, Inc. provided Auto Cad drawings and elevations for design details, tile, cabinets, painting, installations and project management.
