Age-In-Place Master Suite

Nestled behind Newberg’s premier wine country, we were called back by a client who loved her new kitchen remodel so much, she came back for a new master to pair with it. With a three bedroom two bathroom home, but kids long gone with children of their own, this client wanted to upgrade her small, outdated master bedroom to an age-in-place master suite. So our designer went to work creating a space that she could grow old in comfortably, while still retaining a youthful, modern style (because we’re all young at heart, right?).

Utilizing one of the empty bedrooms our designer converted the space into a Kardashian-sized dressing room, bringing out our client’s inner diva. The warm hickory floors are carried throughout the addition into the new master and sitting room equipped with vaulted ceilings and expansive windows that bring the country feel indoors, making Maggie the Labradooodle feel right at home.

Maggie, along with her sister Gracie, also love their new expansive shower, featuring both stationary and handheld shower heads which make their monthly baths like trip to the doggie spa. Not only is the shower approved by the dogs, but it’s curb-less entry makes it wheelchair accessible, easing those worries about the future. It’s large porcelain tiling makes this age-in-place friendly bathroom both practical and stylish. While you may notice the warmth of the mahogany vanity, what you can’t see is the warmth of the heated floors that make those midnight tip-toe trips to the bathroom cozy on your feet.

Leading into the bathroom more of that outdoor country feel is brought inside with the custom-built, sliding barn doors–one of our favorite parts of this remodel. Also custom-built, the bookshelf and storage area allows our client to personalize her new space with family photos or her favorite novels.

Speaking of novels, this new sitting room is the perfect spot to relax with a book, play guitar, or sketch–three of our client’s favorite activities. It’s windowed setting makes it warm and inviting. But when a little privacy is needed all our client needs to do is click the remote to the new Hunter Douglas shades. With a sliding glass door to the paved patio, it makes it easy for our client to sneak straight into her new master suite to relax at the end of the day.
