With the guidance and vision of D. Michael Designs, our 36 year old master bedroom has been
transformed from a tired same ole, same ole look to a vibrant, fresh – is this really our bedroom –
The renovation encompassed a complete new look from ceiling to floor. The ceiling was freed
from its stale, dusty and out-of-fashion “popcorn” treatment. It and all its supporting walls were
freshly painted and textured. A new ceiling fan was installed and a new television was wall-
The wall-to-wall carpet gave way to the warm look of real wood flooring throughout the main
bedroom, vanity enclave and walk-in closet. The vanity enclave received a new granite
countertop, two rectangular vessel sinks, two separate wall mirrors, two medicine cabinets (one
for him and one for her). The supporting vanity base was painted a complimentary grey tone that
appeared throughout the master bedroom.
The crown jewel of the renovation was the offset shower and commode (enclave). The shower
walls, shower flooring and the drainage system were given an enchanting mixed application of
tile placement – from the floor up three walls to the ceiling. We installed a modern 36” lateral
drain along the longest wall in the shower, and the gradual, effective sloping to drain was
exceptionally done. When finished, the tile placement gives the impression of one sharing their
shower with a real waterfall. A very nice touch. A large two section niche´ is included in the
elongated vertically placed tile.
New stainless steel shower head, faucet handle, ADA safety hand bars and double curtain rod
(with curtain and a spot to hang our towels) truly enhanced the look. The tile flooring in the
remainder of the space and adjacent commode, along with the towel cabinet and built-in laundry
hamper continued the effect. This entire room was tastefully done in shades of grey…
Enough of the narrative. We’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. A huge thank you to D.
Michael Designs and his entire team. The whole process of a major renovation while still
residing in the space brings its own level of stress and pressure. From the very first meeting and
discussion of what we wanted to do, Dave was by our side. His architectural, design and
contract capabilities are above what I could have expected. His punctuality, daily coordination
and communication were impeccable.
This was a huge undertaking, and without Dave’s patience, ideas and knowledge, I can’t imagine
how it would have gone over the past months. I will be forever grateful to Dave and the
friendship we developed. I would recommend beyond five stars D. Michael Designs.
