Old houses, no matter how beautiful, have their challenges and often need repairs. But if you must repair 100-year-old plumbing, you might as well have fun doing it, especially if you have an artistic family that loves combining old and new.
This beautiful old stone house in the Summit Hill neighborhood of Saint Paul needed updates to its aging plumbing so we transformed two bathrooms into clean modern jewels fit for the creative family. The Master Bathroom features custom Trove wallpaper, an awesome chevron tile floor that wraps onto the shower walls and an impressive marble slab backsplash behind the vanity. The third floor Bath, tucked into a dormer, was updated with a new walk-in shower, modern fixtures and a shimmering opalescent floor.
We also collaborated with the kids to add a personal touch in their bedrooms by laser cutting designs into the wood radiator covers, steel steps and handles in their new built-in bookcases. A very cool project for us to work on.
