Five Star Hotel with all the Amenities” was the expectation from these world travelers.  The client was looking to take advantage of a large underutilized space, and having traveled all over the world, they knew the importance of good design.  When this is the opening statement from a client, you know there is going to be some exciting design elements in this project.  Don’t be fooled by the five star terminology.  Many would believe this means an open-ended budget.  And, yes, having more funds to invest into your dream space is nice, but it is not required for a well-designed space.

What does it really mean?  Well, the client is really saying they are open to any and all design ideas.  They want to explore every possibility and the budgets that correspond to the design options.  It is very important to understand why these options are so important.  Having choices gives the client the freedom to choose the best design, it puts them in control of their  budget, and allows for the project that is right for their needs.  A good design/build firm will be able to show you many possibilities for your project.  More importantly, they can give you an accurate estimate for those designs.  This will help you keep your design dreams from swallowing your budget.  Also, a good design/build firm will be able to marry great design with your budget.  This Award-winning project in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, is a great example of exploring many design ideas and budgets to achieve the right results.

A big challenge for the designer to overcome: creating separate spaces without it feeling separate.  It was very important for the owners to both have their own spaces, but also to keep an open space.  The existing layout consisted of small, closed-off rooms, and they did not want to repeat a choppy floor plan.  The solution: think outside the box with a floating wall.  This wall enabled all of the client’s wish list items to be incorporated into the design.  The stone-covered wall enabled privacy for the shower and toilet, tucked just behind the vanities.  This space was cleverly crafted to maximize every inch, while enhancing an open-concept footprint and giving way to flanking his-and-hers closet spaces.  Incorporating closet storage for both him and her really gave this space the final hotel experience.  Her closet features a built-in bench, an island and a locking jewelry door.  His side features a peninsula drawer space and a hide-away ironing board.

Highlights include a frosted glass panel between the toilet and the shower to keep the areas separate, but private and feeling spacious.  Some spa-like elements includes Brizio faucets and shower fixtures, Robern lift-up medicine cabinets, motion sensor under-cabinet lighting, and a wall-hung toilet.  A separate entrance from the office was incorporated to the bath to allow undisturbed entrance and exiting to accommodate the owners’ conflicting schedules.


These clients were looking to have the look and feel of a five-star hotel in their home.  The results speak for themselves with not one, but 2 awards.  You can get a feel of the amazing results of this wonderful collaboration between a trusted design/build firm, a talented designer and amazing clients.  In order to achieve an award-winning design, it takes all three components working side by side with open communication.

As a remodeling contractor, our true calling is working with people – homeowners who need or want a change in their daily lives. We love to share the stories behind the renovated spaces, because our craft and the lives we impact are the center of our lives. We hope you enjoy this homeowner’s story!

Nestled among the beautiful historic town of Haddonfield, this home was in dire need of a master suite. This family raised several children in the home, who have since grown up and moved on. It was time for a master suite retreat – larger than a traditional 6’ x 9’ bathroom that they currently had.

The new design took an empty bedroom and cleverly crafted a passageway from the existing master closet to the new master bath, enabling us to incorporate his-and-hers closets on either side of the new entryway. This solved a much needed storage issue, along with allowing plenty of space for a double vanity, a walk-in shower with a heated seat, and body sprays. We were also able to incorporate a window seat and a vanity for her. The bathroom features a custom built-in linen cabinet, chandelier sconces, pocket doors, and custom wainscoting. There’s even a built-in mirror over the vanity and a special fixed pane feature window perfect for a sculpture.

The clients were impressed with the concept of beautifully fulfilling their need for not only a gorgeous bathroom, but creative and
functional storage. The design proved to be not only aesthetically pleasing, but functional as well.

“We would like to offer our sincere appreciation for the superb craftsmanship. We truly wake up each day with a smile on our faces when we walk into our beautiful new master bathroom. Thank you again for a wonderful experience.” Haddonfield, NJ
