Upon first glance, you will feel the calm in this freshly remodeled primary ensuite bathroom located in Centennial Park Place, Springfield, IL. Warm grays and whites come together with Showplace Cabinetry in Dovetail Paint, Adura LVT flooring in Steele, MSI Premium Plus White Quartz tops, and Calacatta look shower panels. Add beautiful matte black fixtures and hardware and you have a classic modern bathroom to be enjoyed for years to come.  

This fresh color palette, along with increased functionality and accessibility, met our clients needs beautifully.  

With minimal reframing required, the new bathroom design included an enlarged shower space and new plumbing design allows for shower controls to be accessed outside of the water spray. Single panel heavy glass creates a doorless entry. 


This modern bathroom design isn’t just sleek and pretty on the eyes but created with functionality in mind! The mirrors can be opened for extra storage, perfect for a medicine and cosmetic cabinet.

The beauty of a bathroom remodel is taking what you don’t like about your space, and replacing it with features you LOVE, while also keeping the practical parts your previous space had! Truly, the best of both worlds.


In the heart of countless homes, down a familiar hallway, lies a space often overlooked—the hall bathroom. It’s a space mainly utilized by guests or kids, and for many, in desperate need of a transformation. This remodel is a testament to how a simple space can transform into a haven of charm and elegance.

The homeowners knew they wanted a timeless bathroom makeover they would be proud to show guests for years to come, keeping accessibility and functionality at the forefront. 

The journey began with the addition of a window—a gateway for natural light to pour in! It brightens every aspect of the room, especially the Naval Blue bamboo vanity cabinet with open shelving and the gorgeous Carrara marble countertop. It was then time to say goodbye to the outdated tub and say hello to a beautiful subway-tiled shower with a glass penny round tile accent! The heavy glass doors make the space look larger without adding any square footage, and removing the tub will make this space accessible for years to come. 

Lastly, the shiplap walls and LVP flooring bring a rustic modern flare, pulling the design elements together. This space’s combination of colors and textures creates a tranquil space every homeowner dreams of. 


Blacks, grays, whites and natural elements take beautiful shape in the master bath remodel on the West side of Springfield. Elegant but not too stuffy finishes make for a gorgeous and oh so live-able space. Elements we love include:

  • Midnight stain cabinetry with decorative open shelf storage space
  • Silver porcelain tile floor
  • Modern take on subway tile on walls, accent tile that plays well with both cool and warm tones
  • Free standing soaker tub and floor mount tub filler faucet
  • Penny round marble look shower floor tile
  • Recessed shower niche
  • Pretty granite on vanity top and cap of partial wall

Enjoying your little slice of spa time starts with the primary bedroom ensuite in your own home. This newly remodeled primary bathroom just speaks calm into your very first moments in the morning and prepares you for rest at the end of a hectic day.

The original bathroom plan for these DreamMaker clients included a corner garden tub and two separate vanities, all with a heavy dose of dark accent tile surrounding. The homeowners were looking for a bright and cohesive new design with high functioning and low maintenance materials in mind, as this is a season of life that includes multiple children involved in multiple activities.

Maximizing the bathroom layout starts with removing the garden tub to create space for a great low threshold shower. Replacing a dated glass block window with a slim horizontal window, sometimes called a letter box window, at eye level allows that beautiful daylight to still fill the space without compromising privacy. Double bowl vanity and reduced depth counter cabinet equipped with hidden electrical outlet in appliance garage.

The low maintenance bathroom materials we love in this space include the LVT flooring and subway stamped shower wall panels and one-piece shower pan – beating the grout game beautifully.

More to love about the material choices:

  • Showplace Cabinetry
    • Pendleton Door
    • Naval Blue in stain finish
    • Appliance garage with interior electrical outlet
  • Quartz vanity top
  • Luxury Vinyl Tile flooring
  • The Onyx Collection shower pieces
  • Heavy glass shower door 

Piece by piece and room by room, this young family is totally modernizing their Lake Springfield home. The existing master bathroom was dated in style and lacked functional components for their busy family lifestyle.

To be specific, their wish list included:

  1. Large walk-in shower with built in bench seat.
  2. Double vanities for better storage, better morning routines, and better marriage.
  3. Modern style features:
    • Vessel sinks
    • Wall mount faucets
    • Floating vanities
    • Doorless shower
    • Wall hung, tankless toilet
    • Slab front cabinet doors
    • Black fixtures
    • Linear shower drain
  4. Luxury splurge – heated tile floors

We love the smart design decision to increase the soffit over shower and toilet area, along with adding new short-depth wall to define these two areas. New, obscured single pane window replaces casement windows. Shower size goes from a mere 30”x 40” to a spacious 48” x 80”.

The sleek and modern new details:

  • Showplace Cabinetry
    • Black Satin
    • Milan door
  • Cambria Quartz
    • Brittanica
  • Toto tankless toilet
  • Happy Floors, 12×24 Etna Color Gris
  • Delta matte black fixtures

Reality is, fiberglass shower units with corner seats are just not as impressive as we all thought they once were (and as for the garden tub, same sentiments). There is so much more showering space to be had and so much more style to show off in this low profile walk in shower and focal point slipper tub.

All the pretty little details from the ground up:

  • Removal of column in the middle of the room and dividing wall with cut-out at sink, flooring, and all fixtures in bathroom.
  • Mannington Adura lLuxury vinyl tile flooring in Century Mineral
  • Onyx low profile shower base and corner bench in Carrera
  • Shower walls tiles with Daltile Multitude Origami, behind tub Daltile Elevare in Carbon, niches in Glazzio hexagon accent tile.
  • Heavy glass shower door and walls
  • Clarke free standing solid surface slipper style tub
  • Furniture style vanity cabinet by Showplace Cabinetry, Pendleton door, in a gorgeous Gauntlet Gray

If you can relate to the woes of columns, small fiberglass showers with aluminum track doors, and unused garden tubs, then you qualify for a free consultation with someone on the DreamMaker Design Team. Seriously, it is worth your time to discover the right solution to your dated master bathroom.

Excited to make this master bathroom all that she had dreamed of, this homeowner chose to remove the never-used tub and enjoy the walk-in shower that should meet her needs long into the future.

With the long-term in mind, all items on the wish list were addressed. This includes heated flooring, low maintenance Onyx Collection shower with custom shower bench, dual function shower fixtures for overhead and/or seated bathing, low barrier entry shower base, fold down teak bench in dry off area and full storage pantry cabinet with roll-out tray shelves for ultimate access to all items.

Tiny spaces are challenging for sure, and this small bathroom packs style and simple function into the roughly 6’x7′ footprint.

A new modern classic kind of style splashed from head to toe in this itty bitty bathroom brings as much functionality as it does curb appeal. Design elements that make this more than just an updated bathroom include the custom black steel base for pedestal sink which makes a modern/retro statement, classic chrome fixtures and white subway tile throughout. Heavy glass panel splash guard for shower and low profile shower base are not intrusive on the precious space.

The natural charm of an exposed brick chimney chase in this 1920’s home is like icing on the cake. Enjoy!

Step in to this serene master bathroom remodel and see and feel the tranquility immediately. Soft taupe-like grays like the Showplace Cabinetry painted cabinets in Oyster, Benjamin Moore paint in Thunder, and Ceasarstone Quartz tops in Turbine Gray work well with this now opened up space.

Luxury walk in showers are so in and garden tubs are so out and this sweet remodel is the perfect proof of that!

One of the beauties of this bathroom is that it looks and functions well now and contains some critical aging-in-place elements should accessibility become an issue in the future. Walk in shower with low threshold shower base will always allow for more flexibility than a tub or taller ledge at the entrance, shower bench seat for seated bathing, grab bar for stability transitioning, and easy access to supplies with custom tiled shower niche. Ample space near toilet and floor space for a turnaround radius in the event of a wheelchair in use.
