Designer Barb Schmidt, whose work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, and Metropolitan Home, worked with the couple to refurbish their baby registry freebies 2014 bathroom.
After entering the contest she checked the American Standard webpage and saw pictures of her bathroom.
She says her budget never would have allowed her to tile the bathroom and shower with pricy glass tiles, but she loves the look.
It'll be competing against washrooms at the Calgary Zoo, Niagara Falls' Planet Hollywood, Niagara on the Lake's Shaw Club Hotel and Spa, and Toronto's Patria restaurant.She is careful when she spits in the sink when she brushes her teeth, because she doesnt want to mess up her beautiful new bathroom.After winning the contest Janell Madonna wondered how she would spend the 20,000 but you would be surprised how quickly you go through the money.American Standard donated 20,000 to defray the cost of construction and other companies donated material to the bathroom redo.It features a jetted tub, a spacious shower with glass tile and 10 showerheads, and two sinks.The contest describes the YVR washroom thusly: Located in the C-Pier, Domestic Terminal of YVR, travelers find a clean, modern place to freshen up during their journeys.The public can vote for their picks at the contest website until September.Janell said the shower is her favorite feature of the new room.The couple was asked to put some ideas on paper and they devised a few conservative plans.
Cotempo Tile provided the granite for tub and countertops, Anderson Windows replaced a small window in the bathroom with a stunning expanse of glass by the tub and a skylight in the shower, and Beehive glass gave the shower doors to the Madonna couple.
The Vancouver International Airport was recently named the most efficient airport in Canada.
When the project was finished the couple and their completed bathroom was filmed, and the tape was aired throughout the United States.
The remodeled master bath now opens to the master bedroom.It was like being back in school and having a term paper due, Angelo Madonna says.We pounded on it (with sledge hammers for hours) Angelo Madonna said.But the big, brown bathtub proved to be an unexpected bonus when they won American Standards Fourth Annual Americas Ugliest Bathroom Contest.The bathtub should be good for soaking, right?
