Before & After: Jaguar Avenue Bathroom

This past spring, we worked on bathroom remodel in Lakeville, MN.  This home was built in 1992 in a cute little neighborhood near Lake Marion.  The bathroom had never been updated, so it was definitely time to spruce it up and bring it up to date with today’s trends and the homeowners desires.

The homeowners did not want to go too modern as they still had a very traditional home and eventually want to sell.  With that in mind, our designer kept the materials budget friendly and kept within the style of the existing home.

Take a look at a few of the before pictures here to get an idea of the original space

As you can see, we brightened up the space with a light blue color on the walls.  Adding some contrast with the dark vanity and medium toned floors.  The nice white tub and shower help brighten up the space as well!

In the tub and shower area, we used a Choreograph wall system from Kohler that has a brick pattern to it.  It eliminates any grout lines, but gives the impression of tile!  The floor is a luxury vinyl tile that has been grouted.  This material is great for floors in bathrooms as it is softer and warmer than a regular tile!

For the vanity, we updated to a taller height.  This allowed for more storage below and a more comfortable height for the homeowners to use.  These beautiful cabinets come from Holiday Kitchens out of Rice Lake, Wisconsin!  More about them later.  The countertop is a remnant we chose that perfectly marries the whole bathroom together and gives them a wow factor as you enter the bathroom.

Here is a closer up detail of the Choreograph shower walls and the locker storage system.  This is great for all of your storage needs within the shower!

This was a great project to work on and really answered all of the problems the homeowners had with this bathroom!  As a designer, it is fun to see people be comfortable in choosing a few standout pieces (the countertops and dark cabinets!) but still keeping the space within the style of the rest of the home.

Let us introduce ourselves…

Hi!  Welcome to our page and our company!  Well, we have made it through our first year together and we are so excited about the work we have accomplished and the work we look forward to in the future.  I think it is about time we get on here and introduce ourselves to you!

Steve McDonald, who is the Owner of WBD, has been in the housing and real estate industry for 30+ years, from selling building products, managing residential construction companies, building a remodeling company to selling homes.  He grew up in Burnsville where his dad was a well known builder.  If you live in the south metro, there is a good chance that Steve is somehow related to you or someone in your family!  He currently lives in Lakeville with his wife, Kari and his 2 children.  When he is not busy updating or selling homes, he enjoys going to the cabin with his family and fishing.

I (Angela) knew at a young age that I wanted to become an architect.  My dad built both of my childhood homes, one of which I remember going to every weekend and watching them build walls, tile bathrooms, and install cabinets.  It was fascinating to me.  I have been in the remodeling industry for 8+ years, from selling plumbing fixtures, remodeling kitchens and bathrooms, to making sure the project is scheduled and executed. When I am not busy designing dream spaces, I enjoy spending time with my husband Vince and our daughter Natalie.  They light up my life!  We have a great rescue dog too – Zoe!  I also enjoy cooking, knitting, gardening, running and traveling around the world.

Steve and I have worked together for about 8 years.  We really enjoy working as a team and are so excited to help you with your next remodel project!  We take the time to get to know our customers, their family (& pets) and their homes, and then taking the time to understand what they wanted to accomplish with their space.  Our goal is to make sure we first listen to our customers, design and come up with a realistic project, and then execute it to perfection.
