We have exciting news to share! Recently, the JMC team was awarded two Contractor of the Year TM (CotY) awards by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI). The two winning projects, a master bedroom remodel and master bathroom remodel, are both custom design solutions that were crafted with our clients’ input and the JMC team’s expertise. We share this award with our clients who were the inspiration behind these two beautiful projects.
“Receiving a CotY award is a big honor and being recognized for both projects was especially rewarding,” said John MacDougall, President of JMC Home Improvement Specialists. “We were greatly inspired to provide practical solutions for a family with changing needs by creating a master design suite while maintaining the integrity of the design and elegance of our client’s home. The JMC Design team used some very creative approaches to surpass our client’s needs.”
About the Winning Projects
Universal Design Master Suite & Bathroom Remodel
Our clients wished to remodel their master bedroom and bath to accommodate their changing mobility challenges. They expressed the importance of maximizing functionality to allow accessibility in a space that was elegant, refined and felt like home. We crafted a design plan that included converting two smaller bedrooms, a small bath and walk-in closet into a spacious master suite with a wheelchair accessible bathroom and three closets.
Custom, double pocket doors invite you into the 25-foot wide, light-filled bedroom with generous floor space to maneuver around the bed and furniture. Hardwood floors, recessed lighting and window views to the owner’s gardens make this bedroom particularly warm and inviting.
In the bathroom, the 5×7 roll-in shower features natural marble tile with a custom rug pattern. There’s also a new, accessible sink and vanity with plenty of storage. Wider hallways and pocket doors were installed throughout as well as a completely updated seated chairlift that allows access from the garage to the second floor. Altogether, it’s a beautiful space where the homeowners can comfortably live for years to come.
BATH REMODEL WINNER – An Elegant & Traditional Master Bathroom
The owners of this 80’s contemporary-style bath longed for a more elegant bathroom that would blend with the traditional look of the rest of their home.
Though the existing master bath was large, it did not optimize its space for utility or aesthetics. JMC removed the walls that separated the toilet, an existing platform tub, and an oversized linen closet that was eating up space. Now a beautiful, freestanding tub becomes the focal point under the vaulted ceiling with skylight. A new, two-person shower with storage shelves replaces the former dark stall shower. An expansive custom vanity offers plenty of light and storage including rollout trays and drawers. Next to the vanity, a half-wall provides privacy for the toilet area, yet doesn’t impede on the overall flow of the bathroom. Additionally, a beautiful custom furniture piece functions as linen storage.
We carefully added traditional details throughout that enhance and compliment the existing contemporary vaulted ceiling, yet blend with the rest of the home. Custom paneling, moldings, and a corner wall column create beautiful traditional details. Our clients now have the stunning bath space they envisioned.
A special thank you to our fantastic clients for trusting us to craft their dream remodeling projects.
