Our clients in Wharton wanted a bathroom remodel without compromise. Being long-time Tom Tynan listeners, they knew better than most the importance of getting a job done right the first time. So, they asked TriFection to go the distance for their project.
We started work in their master bathroom which had an all-too-typical small tub/shower combination. Our client wanted a more spacious shower with a bench seat for easier access and maneuverability as the years go by. They understood a larger, modern walk-in shower in lieu of a tub would not have an adverse impact on their resale value. In fact, it would likely enhance resale.
Tubless bathroom remodel
Work began by eliminating the wall separating the tub/shower from the toilet. This first step gave us more room and opened up the look of room. We enhanced that look by replacing the solid wall with frameless glass set on top of a knee wall.
We remodeled the shower, with its small corner bench seat and recessed shampoo niche, in Concrete Beige 12×24 tile in a broken joint pattern from Interceramic. We added an accent liner of Autumn Shimmer Blends 1×2 glass tile. Finally, we laid the shower floor with a Concrete Mosaic blend tile.
For fixtures, our clients selected a new shower head, handheld unit and accessories from Moen and Rohl lines. We also added a new water-conserving toilet from Kohler.
To finish off the master, we removed the linoleum flooring and replaced it with Oxide Argilla 11.5×23 tile in a broken joint pattern. And, we complemented it all with new powder blue paint from Sherwin Williams on the walls.
Next stop: guest bath
Down the hall, our clients’ guest bath also needed a facelift. Its painted vanity cabinet was showing its age. But, they liked the existing countertop. This was the perfect opportunity for cabinet refacing.
We removed the doors and drawers and replaced them with newly built solid red oak fronts and dark oak stain. The result – a fresh look for cabinets without the expense of new counters and backsplash.
Our clients elected to keep the tub in the guest bath, but replaced the tile surround with the same Concrete Beige 12×24 tile we used in their master bath. We added an accent liner of Prairie Shimmer Blends 1 x 2 glass tile from Interceramic. For the sake of consistency, we repeated the master bath’s Oxide Argilla 11.5 x 23 tile floor in a broken joint pattern.
As finishing touches, we replaced the fixtures with modern Moen and Rohl units and installed another water-conserving toilet from Kohler.
A bathroom remodel worth driving for
Our clients were so pleased with their decision to trust Tom Tynan about TriFection, that they’ve already referred their daughter to us. We’re working on the design of new custom built-in cabinets for her home office. Proof that TriFection will go the distance to earn a referral.
