This classic Portland foursquare has only one full bath, like a lot of them do, and it needed to work for two people without enlarging the footprint. In collaboration with Stephanie Stephens, our Design Associate and lead on this project, and Paul Hegarty of Hegarty Construction we made it happen.

The biggest trick was to get more counter space while still giving our clients a cool above counter sink. Combining our cabinet design along with the expert build of L&Z Cabinets and precision install by Paul Hegarty we gave them flip down counters to use when needed that are out of the way when not. We integrated fun punches of color at our client’s request and pulled it all together with classic subway tile from Hawthorne Tile. All this beauty and heated floors!? Life is good.

"Arlene and Stephanie helped us organize our thoughts and gently steered us into doing what really worked best in remodeling our small bathroom, allowing the new space to fit in seamlessly with our older house yet bringing fresh, modern touches to bear. We wouldn’t consider working with anyone else." —John and Kathy
