Nice folks in Sugar Land called TriFection to remodel their master bath. They heard home improvement expert Tom Tynan speak very highly of our work on his HomeShow Radio program. So, after also reading our excellent reviews on Angie’s List, they requested a consultation with our design experts.
During our initial in-home meeting, we discovered their master bath had so much potential. It’s sizable with large windows and a tall ceiling. However, the aged builder-grade look required updating. The old wallpaper, job site-built plywood cabinets, carpeted floor, and gold-framed shower glass would need to go. Additionally, a massive cultured marble decked bathtub consumed too much space…These folks ultimately chose TriFection to manage the project after we presented creative conceptual drawings that illustrated what the bathroom could become. They also liked the explanation of our meticulous planning process that avoids common remodeling mistakes or misunderstandings. Attention to detail mattered greatly to them. Fittingly, they live in the Sweetwater neighborhood because their new TriFection bathroom is oh so sweet!
Starting with the Shower
Our clients wanted a more stylish, user-friendly shower in their master bath. It did not require a meaningful increase in size, just a little more comfort and modern look. New frameless glass allowed for a wider entry door. We added a bench seat and handheld showering unit to complement the main shower head. Now, when desired, they can sit and relax in the shower…similar to a bathing experience, except without a tub filled with dirty water to clean frequently. A recessed niche in the wall replaced a corner shower caddie as the home for soap and shampoo.
The tile selections in the shower and rest of the bathroom provide natural elegance without overwhelming the eye. Koshi Grey tile adorns the walls while Tesoro Carrera hexagon tile serves as the shower floor and two rows of accent tile. We laid Milestone White on the bathroom floor. The combination looks fantastic!
About That Giant Bathtub…
We removed the old decked tub in favor of a sleek freestanding unit. They chose a cast iron model, which required some major TriFection muscle to move inside the house and install. After demo and prior to installation, we discovered the existing tub drain was undersized and set inside a concrete grade beam. We advised our clients this could lead to future clogs and other drainage problems, so now would be the best opportunity to address it. They wisely accepted our recommendation to increase the size and relocate the drain pipe. TriFection’s master plumbing contractor executed this task with care and precision.
Custom Cabinets and Countertops Wow
Our clients selected raised panel custom cabinets, including a vanity and linen, painted Pure White from Sherwin Williams. They love the new look and durability of TriFection’s solid wood cabinetry, including the European-style hidden hinges and soft-close drawer slides. For countertops, they chose Swanbridge quartz from the Cambria line, which is TriFection’s exclusive quartz manufacturer. With material available after fabricating the vanity tops, we also installed this quartz on two bathroom window sills, a nice upgrade from the previous wood and cultured marble sills. Finally, Sherwin Williams Passive paint color on the walls provided a fairly neutral complement to this well-conceived selections package.
Sugar Land Clients Impressed with the Process and Craftsmanship
Our clients love their new master bathroom. Just as importantly, they appreciate the professionalism, organization and teamwork involved in our design and execution procedures. Based on mutual trust and proper precautions, they allowed us to keep working in their home as the Covid-19 crisis intensified. Thankfully, our team didn’t miss a beat, and as a result, they’re now enjoying a beautifully completed remodel instead of a house stuck in under-construction status for an extended period. Now, with a 5-star bathroom that delivers spa-like treatment every day, the stay-at-home orders from the pandemic didn’t seem so restrictive.
