This 1922 historical home in Meridian Kessler was ready for a few updates that remained true to its original elegant charm while including modern amenities and finishes. The master bath was updated in the 90’s and received most of our focus with a combination of refurbished fixtures and materials seamlessly blending old with the new.
For the master suite we integrated two bedrooms and a jack and jill bathroom to allow for a walk-in closet, larger master bedroom and large bathroom with all the modern amenities most coveted. By increasing this space, it allowed for a fireplace that had been in a corner of the bedroom to be centered symmetrically between two existing windows perfectly. We refurbished the original mantle details and installed a new marble hearth to make this fireplace look original. The bathroom now accommodates a large shower with marble tile floor and the shower tile is exquisite and includes a seat. The new vanity cabinets are white painted maple, and the new location and layout significantly increased storage and function. An original crystal chandelier was found in the home and was hung in its place of honor while a new wall sconce adds a touch of elegance. This larger space for the bathroom allows storage, large windows, plenty of open space and a separate toilet room with a door. The new master closet was customized specifically for this homeowner’s shoe boxes and clothing and included matching cabinet hardware with the bathroom for cohesiveness.
The finished renovation restores this beautiful home to its original aesthetic while maintaining the historical details. It is a stunning blend of history and modern style with improved functionality for today’s family.
