Before & After Stories: Master Suite Remodel

Welcome back to our Before & After Stories feature, a chance for you to pull back the curtain and get a sneak peek of the process behind one of our projects, from concept to completion!


On the Shores of Crystal Lake Sat a Home Awaiting Transformation

This month, we’re sharing with you the story behind a stunning Master Suite remodel of a lakefront home. The homeowner had secured a coveted, lake-front home on the spectacular shoreline of Crystal Lake in Burnsville, MN, a southern suburb of Minneapolis. While the location and breathtaking views were picture-perfect, the interior was ripe for a transformation, providing a challenging, yet still inspiring, canvas for a remodel. The initial scope for this Burnsville, MN included interior design services for a makeover of the master bedroom, and a master bathroom remodel, which featured dated finishes, cramped spaces, and a lack of privacy. The client’s wish list included removing the oversized tub, adding a more modern color palette, tile, and textures, as well as enhancing privacy to transform their master retreat into the space of their dreams.

– The Master Suite Transformed –

Che Bella’s designers used creative space planning and artful design to create a swoon-worthy master retreat that features a transitional, tranquil vibe – a perfect pairing with the home’s lakefront setting, delivering on the homeowners’ wish for a more light, bright and private master bath and bedroom. We’re loving this finished Burnsville, MN master retreat with its beautiful mix of form and function, along with timeless, high-end touches that make this gem sparkle.

Main functional issues:

  • Oversized tub needed to be removed due to difficulty getting in and out 
  • Finishes were dated
  • Space felt cramped and didn’t provide adequate storage
  • Lack of privacy in shower
