Designed for Relaxation: A Transitional Master Bathroom,
Hall Bath and Laundry Room Remodel in Fitchburg, WI


This Fitchburg family approached Sweeney Design Remodel with a strong desire to transform their outdated master bathroom, hall bath, and laundry room into a more spacious, functional, comfortable space with modern conveniences and amenities. 

The master bathroom was poorly laid out. Typical of homes in this era, it had a large whirlpool tub, laminate countertops, carpet, and a small modular shower. It also had low, dated cabinets and no room for a makeup station.

The laundry room consisted of a large closet that divided the mudroom and laundry.  It was cramped, dated, and lacked the versatility of a multi-functional mudroom/utility room with ample storage capacity.


Master Bathroom
Without changing the master bath footprint, the size of the room felt more spacious by removing the soffit above the existing vanity. The dated cabinets were replaced with custom new cabinets made from walnut with front slab drawers and finished in a deep rich stain. A custom makeup vanity was added to the space and finished in the same beautiful color— complete with a flip-top mirror, electrical outlets, and built-in lighting. Cambria Quartz countertops, modern fixtures, wood-wrapped mirrors, perfectly placed contemporary sconces and a large porcelain tile backsplash complete the look. Last but not least, the spa-inspired shower was designed with tile, Kohler Devonshire & Purist shower fixtures, dual shower niches, and a built-in shower seat. In addition, the old carpet was removed and replaced with Amalfi 12’x24′ stone tile in a ‘Bianco Scala’ color.

Hall Bathroom
The family bathroom received a contemporary refresh that mirrored the master bath. The same Cambria Quartz countertop and custom cabinetry was chosen for a seamless look throughout the home. The shower includes a rolling-style glass door, large format tile, a custom bench, and Kohler fixtures.

Designing the ultimate multi-purpose laundry and mudroom required a clean slate. This meant gutting the space and reconfiguring the layout.

Plenty of storage was designed into the room, including a wall of cabinets above the washer and dryer and a fantastic gift-wrapping station with handy gift paper rods and open shelving. The custom shaker-style cabinetry is finished in a medium stain and topped with a durable and easy to maintain Corian solid surface countertop in an ‘Abalone’ color.

One wall was designed with a ‘Slatwall’ by ProSlat. This creative wall system allows for endless variations of hooks and shelving to ensure the family’s coats, backpacks, and other items are stored up and out of the way but still within easy reach.

The floor is finished with a Trento tile called ‘Seaside Cliffs’ and adds a rustic touch to the space. A side-by-side washer and dryer, Hazelton undermount sink and stainless steel ceiling fan finish out this amazing transformation.


Clean, organized and even beautiful, this laundry room renovation resulted in a bright and cheery place for our clients to leave their coats and shoes, and wash their clothes. The light-filled bathrooms provided just the right balance of form and function they needed, now a place to relax in comfort after a long day.

“Sweeney recently did a full basement remodel for us. When we bought our house in 2001, we knew we would need to do major remodeling. We first worked with Sweeney in 2004 to gut and remodel our kitchen as well as do a refresh (new windows, siding, wood floor refinish, etc). We were so pleased with the quality and professionalism provided by Sweeney that we have since hired them to gut and remodel two bathrooms, replace all the doors, and now gut and remodel our basement. Tim Sweeney and all the Sweeney staff are great to work with, and they stand behind their work. In our experience, they do a good job of budgeting (can’t blame them for our change requests!) and stick to their schedule.”
