The manager of a small, nationally-recognized consulting business in the kitchen and bath industry transforms her bathroom from 1950s shabby to a style that would last for the next 20 years, adopting the ultimate steam experience along the way.
Leah Peterson is living the dream in Charlotte, NC – she is the mother of a young son and is married to her best friend. She describes her neighborhood as “chock full of 1950-70s homes” that young families are remodeling. Her own home needed to be transformed from a house suffering an identity crisis of Honduran mahogany wood paneling intermingled with traditional finishes and furnishings. The shocking discovery of turquoise tile hidden beneath a cunning white spray was the impetus to begin a comprehensive remodel of the bathroom.
Leah wanted the redesign to last about 20 years and was adamant that the products selected would align with the family’s personal values – clean, organic living, optimal self-care, and specific ethical standards. By using MrSteam products, they knew they were doing it right. Not only does the company provide the ultimate in steam, but MrSteam products are good for the environment and contribute to overall health and well-being.
The finished bathroom honors the history of the original home, returning it to more of a mid-century feel while still injecting the family’s personal character. This was accomplished by historically accurate components such as a floating vanity, timeless polished chrome plumbing, white walls and oversized subway tile, small hexagon Carra flooring, and modernized toilet and medicine cabinets with electronic features.
One change the Petersons made was to move the control panel to the inside of the shower. By doing this, they were able to turn the unit on and off, as well as manage the Chroma, Aroma and Music Therapies from inside of the shower. As Leah says: “The shower has fulfilled my dream and made our remodeling project complete. It’s everything I could have ever wanted in a place to relax and unwind or get motivated and re-energized. The experience is complete because of MrSteam. The company has once again fulfilled its mission of wellness and making people feel good. Who doesn’t want that?”
