• Joy of a Bathroom Remodel

  • Randy Sorrell and Bill Bernard’s column originally appeared in the Dec. 24, 2019 issue of  Current in Carmel

    It’s an incredible time for many small businesses in American.  Myself, and our brilliant constituents in the Indiana Design Center (which is open to the public), are thrilled to be participating in the continued robust economy and are grateful for our thoughtful and happy clients. As creatives and business owners, this year has been especially compelling with updated material palettes and the widespread realization that renovated living spaces can dramatically impact how we live and bring joy.


    Perhaps this thrilled Carmel family will agree with that sentiment.  Refreshed master bathrooms fill us with a sense of welcome luxury in our morning routines and offer a place of respite as we soak away the day’s tarnish. Tired muscles and achy joints melt in soaker tubs with powerful jets or expanded showers geared with rain garden shower heads.

    Their previously cramped bathroom had a single sink, exposed toilet area and undersized shower.  All areas of hoped for change that we were able to modify.


    Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery supplied all the stunning Moen fixtures in the substantially enlarged shower along with the sparkling towel bars, sink faucets and Kohler toilet privately tucked away.  We dig how the shower walls alternating biscuit gloss / matte subway tile stylishly contrasted the earth-tone patterns and Cambria in the shower niches.

    Cambria counters married with a Yorktowne vanity nicely warms the room.  And, as a testament to the “color is back” mantra, Sherman Williams eggshell blue offers a happy burst of energy to the space.

    At Surroundings by Natureworks, we specialize in soluntioneering with our clients. We understand that while some projects require a complete overhaul, other times we can work with existing materials and still bring a fresh look and feel.
