One of TriFection’s former clients in west Houston planned a move to Austin to be closer to her family. However, her home needed updating before she could even consider putting it on the market. Damage in the kitchen from a past water leak required repair, and an awkward master bathroom feature that was unappealing or a possible safety hazard needed to be eliminated. With high-quality remodeling, especially to a kitchen and master bathroom, our client could improve the home’s look and resale value. Additionally, she could enjoy the changes for as long as she continued to live in the home. Based on her prior experience, she knew TriFection would be the perfect team for this project.
A safer master bathroom shower
Our client’s master bathroom featured a unique sunken tub and shower combination. She never felt completely safe when stepping in and out of the shower. To eliminate the potential for a slip or trip, she asked that we removed this feature completely. TriFection filled and floated the floor with concrete and built a new curbless shower, featuring a comfortable bench seat and soap niche. Our master tilers installed Samara Penza Beige 13″ field tile from Interceramic on the walls in a broken joint pattern, tumbled Linen Cream 2×2 on the shower floor, and 20” Samara Penza Beige tile in a grid pattern on the rest of the bathroom floor.
We installed Kohler Devonshire plumbing fixtures in a chrome finish, including a handheld showering unit on a slide bar, and we placed a new recessed LED can light above the shower to brighten the space. Our client opted for frameless shower glass with polished chrome hardware, and we reinstalled her original toilet and chrome bathroom accessories. TriFection finished off the room with a custom paint job. The master bathroom vanity received a fresh coat of Sherwin Williams Pure White paint, and we painted the room’s walls in a color-matched linen cream shade, freshening up the ceiling and trims, too.
Sprucing up the kitchen and surroundings
In the kitchen, TriFection addressed the water damage that ruined the custom cabinetry we originally built and installed five years prior. We installed all new solid beech doors and drawers painted in Sherwin Williams Dover White and affixed new hardware, including antique door knobs from the Berenson Advantage Plus 2 collection and brushed nickel drawer pulls from the Advantage Plus 3 collection. TriFection updated the lighting throughout the kitchen with six new LED can lights and five undercabinet lights. We also put four new can lights in the laundry room to offer a more consistent lighting effect.
To complete the remodeling effort, TriFection installed new Bella Cera Verona Hickory engineered wood floors throughout the kitchen, breakfast room, utility room, living room and dining room. We also painted nearly the entire interior of the home.
Sold! on remodeling
Given the restored beauty and improved functionality of her home, our client may be second-guessing her plan to move. Regardless of whether she chooses to place the home on the market or not, she is very happy to have worked with TriFection once again. The remodeling process ran very smoothly, and the updates will ensure the property shows very well to prospective buyers now or in the future. In the meantime, she can enjoy a more appealing, functional and safe environment while waiting for the offer she can’t refuse.
