Superior space planning is as important a component of quality interior design as any. First get the space to function well, then make it beautiful. That’s what Candis Stott of Designed Interiors and Planning, Inc. did when called upon by Lyn and Mike Haycock.
The Haycocks wanted to do a Sarasota bathroom remodelation located on the top floor of a 3-story home built in 1994. The bathroom needed a face-lift and more. The Haycocks wanted more closet space, a larger shower, a Jacuzzi, a space for linens, and a neat, clean contemporary design. When visiting the ASID Designer Showcase house, they were impressed when they saw the master bath (with a vanity by Dale Rieke – now of EuroTech Cabinetry, Inc.) that was designed by Candis. One phone call later, the Sarasota bathroom remodelation process was in motion. Candis completely re-designed the space incorporating the master bath, vanities and walk-in closets. combining the two walk-ins into one, she gave the Haycocks 40% more closet space. Then Candis put both vanity sinks on the same wall, including a dressing table. This created additional space for a 64 cubic foot linen cabinet with a medicine cabinet cut into the side. She then added a corner Jacuzzi and created a shower space 50% greater than the original. This shower was big enough for two, hence the double shower heads and body sprays.
Now that Candis had the space re-designed, she called upon Dale Rieke to help her incorporate cabinetry that would be the dramatic focal point of the room. Dale suggested a vertically scalloped door and drawer face with stainless steel trim to match the chosen fixtures. Candis selected Cherry veneers with a custom stain, keeping the design contemporary but warm. EuroTech also provided matching, framed mirrors to float over the vanity and a radiused, scalloped access panel for the front of the Jacuzzi. Candis completed the look with vessel sinks, wall mounted faucets and light fixtures, travertine flooring and wall treatment and a 5 foot by 5 foot, backlit piece of stained glass provided by the Haycocks.
