Creating Our 2015 Parade Home Master Bathroom

When we created the master bathroom for the 2015 American Heritage Homes Parade of Homes it all started with the floor.

We were completely undecided on what type of flooring to go with: hardwood tile, tile etc. When we got to Carpets Plus Design Center we starting by picking the flooring for the home which was hardwood. I remembered back to my initial consult with the client when we went through her Pinterest page, she had posted a lot of pictures of herringbone hardwood which she originally wanted but the labor was extremely expensive for this option in the main areas of the house. In the corner I spotted this amazing tile that came in a pattern already so we could keep the labor costs down, the client loved it but thought it would be out of budget, so we simply asked and it was extremely close to our budget so this was the clear choice. Our selection was called Parquet white pine from Carpets Plus.

From there we designed the shower which was the easy part since the homeowner knew she wanted a traditional subway tile. For an accent tile we wanted something with color and ended up going with a Versailles series tile also from Carpets Plus in the color Foggy Meadow. We went with a Mobe Pearl Grout. As for shape we simply had them install what I call a wall panel which is a tall rectangle of the accent tile which can also be placed where the shower trim is as well. Make sure your installer also orders the appropriate edging and trim tile pieces.

For the shower floor we wanted something that wouldn’t show the dirt but wanted to stick with the cool colors, an easy 2X2 mosaic was the clear choice in color Verona Silver and we did a darker Silver Bullet grout to help hide the dirt.

The shower was finished off with Contempra chrome body sprays from Ferguson Plumbing and voila:

We went with a frameless glass surround to keep the clean modern look.

We maintained the same custom which cabinetry as we did in the kitchen from Custom Finish Cabinets but added feet to the cabinets so we would get more of that furniture look. The granite tops are Cashmere Crème from Next Generation Granite with a flat polish modern edge. The custom mirrors are done by A H Installs.

We finished the bathroom off with chrome sconces custom installed in the mirrors from the Quorum line at Wilkinson’s House of Lighting

Add a little bit of finishing touches in décor:

All in all this is one of my favorite bathrooms we have done. The calming cape cod feel is the perfect theme for this master suite!

Client Testimonials
  • We had been looking for a good builder to build our home. We are from up north and were a little cautious about choosing a builder. Our in-laws had just built a new home and when we went to see it, along with seeing the American Heritage model home and the costs involved, we were impressed and approached American Heritage to build our home. We initially worked with Seth to formulate the plans for our home. We also worked with their architect and Seth contributed ideas as we went along. When the building started, Shem took over. He mans the building part of the home. We found both Seth and Shem great to work with. When we had changes that needed to be addressed, they were amiable and worked with us on them. Our neighbor next door watched as the home was being built and said that it was very good workmanship and he was amazed at how fast the home went up. He had built two homes himself. Shem had contractors lined up and it went very smoothly. There wasn’t hardly a day that went by when someone wasn’t working on it. We have had many complements regarding our home. The home has a good warrantee and we have called if anything was not right or needed to be fixed according to the plans, they immediately took care of it. We are really enjoying our new home. We love it, thank you to Seth, Shem and all the folks at American Heritage here in St. George, Utah.
