Builder grade finishes serve the purpose of completing and selling a home. That’s how the game is played. Our clients, however, wanted more for their Kingwood home. That led to a three-part project, including upgrades to their kitchen, hallway bathroom and master bathroom.
The kitchen is first up in this home remodeling project
We began by cutting down a high bar, making the countertops one level. This helped open the space, allowing for better functionality when eating and entertaining.
Our clients chose stunning Super White dolomite natural stone countertops from Omni Surfaces. While its bright whites may look like marble, this natural stone provides the strength and durability needed in a busy kitchen.
The choice of Brites Dark Gray 4”x 8” tile in a broken joint pattern provides a fitting contrast while still continuing the sophisticated gray color scheme. We further extended that look with complementary Sherwin Williams Gray Screen wall paint. All these finishes come to life beautifully under the light of eight new recessed ceiling can lights. We placed one above the sink and one above the old bar countertop to accentuate the new form while further adding function to the kitchen workspace.
Next up: remodeling the hallway bath
Our clients wanted the look of sophistication to extend into their upstairs hallway bath. So, we started with a cool blue and gray color scheme. After installing a new American Standard Princeton bathtub and tile surround, we added Milan Grey 10”x 16” tile from Interceramic in broken joint pattern on the shower walls and 4” Sierra Vista Blue Pearl mosaic accent liner from ArtWalk Tile on the shower walls.
Blue Pearl granite on the vanity, combined with a Kohler Caxton undermount sink and brushed nickel fixtures, sparkle beneath the light of four light Essentials frosted glass and satin nickel vanity light fixture from Maxim Lighting. Then, for added continuity, we built and installed a framed mirror to match the existing cabinetry.
No bathroom remodel would be complete without a newly tiled floor. In this case, our client chose Nu Travertine Silver 12” tile from Arizona Tile, which we installed in a diagonal pattern.
The finished look so impressed our clients that they asked us to continue it in the master bath.
Last but certainly not least: master bath remodeling
Transforming the old shower into a frameless glass walk-in shower was our first step. We covered the walls with Milan Grey 10”x16” tile in a broken joint pattern. Then, we covered the shower floor with Nu Travertine Silver 2”x 2” tile from Arizona Tile.
As with the hallway bath, we used Blue Pearl granite from Midwest Tile, Marble and Granite on the vanity countertops along with two Kohler Caxton undermount sinks and brushed nickel fixtures.
An Essentials four-light frosted glass vanity light fixture in satin nickel from Maxim Lighting gives the remodeled master bath a fresh light as reflected off the Sherwin Williams Misty walls and Nu Travertine Silver 18” floor tiles in a diagonal pattern from Arizona Tile.
A TriFection three-way winner for our clients
The finished look of cool blues and sophisticated grays is a perfect reflection of our client’s relaxed attitude through all three phases of this home remodeling project. They were so pleased with our work that they’re already recommending TriFection to friends and neighbors. That’s a win in our book.
