McCordsville Bathroom Remodel Before and After

In our McCordsville bathroom remodel, our customer had a lot of ideas but needed a little help pulling them all together into a clear vision.

We always walk into a remodel job knowing the most important thing is to give the customer what they want. But in order to consider the job a true success, the customer also has to be wowed by those fine details that take the transformation to the next level. In our McCordsville bathroom remodel, our customer had a lot of ideas but needed a little help pulling them all together into a clear vision.


McCordsville Bathroom Remodel

This bathroom was brimming with potential, and we knew we could add more than just a coat of paint and some fresh tile; it was time to add functionality and personality, and turn this McCordsville bathroom remodel into a lifestyle upgrade!


It all started when the customer saw this beautiful natural marble tile. She wanted the simple and sophisticated look of grays and whites, but the typical porcelain tile just wasn’t cutting it. Once we found the marble and came up with the floor plan, the dream quickly became a reality. But the type of tile isn’t all that counts; the way to create a visually stunning and unique atmosphere is in the variation of tile shapes and sizes. 5” hex tile for the main bathroom floor feels luxurious all in itself, but the true grandiosity lives in the two different tile sizes used to frame the main floor.  Then, yet another tile size for the shower walls, and a small hex mosaic for the shower floor give the McCordsville bathroom remodel a consistent look with infinite depth; it’s almost as if your eye can’t stop finding places to look.


With the tile being natural, the everyday paint colors simply weren’t hitting the mark. We knew the vanity cabinetry was critical in the final look, so we hunted down a custom Sherwin Williams paint color called “Knitting Needles” to blend perfectly with the marble tile’s unique tones. Chrome fixtures and hardware gave us that final accent we needed to inject even more elegance into the bathroom.

The biggest part of our job is giving the customer a new level of functionality that they didn’t even realize was missing from their current layout

Creating space and features out of thin air; giving them storage options they never thought they could have… We started with the entrance, appropriately enough. To create more space for a bigger and better shower, we changed the location of the bathroom’s entrance door. We even added a barn door on the master bedroom side to make the doorway itself less obtrusive. Discrete places to set items down in the shower always become a commodity to the customer (one of those things they didn’t realize they were missing), so we added a recessed storage niche within the shower’s knee wall, as well as a floating tile bench with a quartz cap that runs the entire length of the shower. We raised the shower head, and added a hand-held shower head.

Where the customer used to feel crowded in their own shower, we were able to give them more than just a little extra elbow room. But the magic isn’t all about physically increasing the size of the shower and removing obstacles like low-hanging shower heads, it’s about removing boundaries! We added a frameless glass enclosure to the shower, and a full-length mirror to the walk-in closet door, so the entire space looks and feels limitless.

Storage is a huge part of what makes a space like this feel grand; it’s also a huge part of what makes the customer feel like they have something no one else in the world has.

Not only did we add the custom vanity with tons of under-side storage, but we designed a combination of doors and drawers to lessen the wasted space that comes from giant cabinets with no internal shelving or drawers. So much space is lost in traditional vanity cabinetry, and it’s frustrating to look into a deep dark cabinet and never find what you’re looking for! We also added top-side storage to the vanity in the form of a sleek column housing two pull-out drawers and an upper cabinet. This feature alone gave the McCordsville bathroom remodel some serious personality and has proven to be an absolute jaw-dropper when people see the new bathroom for the first time.

One last detail

We wanted to add one final bit of flare to the room, so we had a couple of our carpenters put together the custom wainscoting on the walls surrounding the tub. This is the kind of detail people often overlook, but can really take a project from great to incredible. The wainscoting effectively adds an accent to part of the room, but because it mirrors the look and feel of the vanity cabinetry it doesn’t feel out-of-place or over-the-top.

Perfect balance of imagination and practicality can completely transform a space

It was really a privilege to watch the McCordsville bathroom remodel come together. This is a great example of how the perfect balance of imagination and practicality can completely transform a space. The most rewarding part of what we do is not just giving the customer what they want, but seeing the look on their face when we add features and design elements that go above and beyond their expectations. This bathroom went from being crowded and dark, to being a spacious modern work of art; a room that feels comfortable and inviting. The before and after pictures of the McCordsville bathroom remodel make us think about the customer and her family walking into their bathroom like kings and queens, and fully enjoying the new room in their home.

We engaged Nicholas Design with the desire to create more living space in our home while updating the kitchen. Kyle and his design team helped us re-image our indoor and outdoor space which allowed our growing family to stay put for more years while enjoying the updates. We were very pleased with the outcome and the project was on time as we faced a tight deadline with a 1 year old birthday approaching.

Nicholas Construction has done an exceptional job transforming our Master Bath into an amazing space. They worked with my husband and I to imagine and create a huge walk in shower with a bench and drying area at one end and a foot bath/soak with seats at the other end. We added special treats such as a heated floor which will be a blessing as our Indiana winter approaches very soon. So excited to have this luxurious space to share with my husband!

We gave Kyle the keys to our house and left for six months. He kept us up to date with reports and pictures. When we returned there was a good size punch list since we had not seen the job in all that time. Kyle stayed on the punch list until we were happy and the job was complete.
Kyle is knowledgeable and goes the extra mile to please.
