Creating A Home Spa

Imagine waking up and taking a dip in a warm indoor pool, followed by a run on the treadmill, ending with a soak in the Jacuzzi – without ever leaving your home!  When the homeowners of this Lodge approached us with the task of creating a relaxing Home Spa, we jumped at the chance to make this dream a reality.

The end result was a stunning, fully-outfitted Spa and Gym.  

The Spa Bath, with curved glass, curved walls, a vanity made from a single slab of honed black granite, and angled window nook, is an oasis of pleasure. Guests can relax on the granite seat in the steam shower, listen to music, and enjoy the digital system that controls the shower, including body sprays and steam controls.

This was one part of a home remodel for a Lodge. The Lodge had a detached structure connected by a breezeway, making it the ideal location for this modern Spa. You can view more information on the Lodge remodel here, the main kitchen here, and the caterer’s prep kitchen here.
