Keith had been in his Collierville home for nearly 4 years prior to determining it was time for an overhaul on the master bathroom. The footprint of his 1987 constructed home remained the same with the exception of an enlarged shower. The man-made marble bath tub was retained as it was in as new condition and its color was complementary to the newly selected color scheme. A reduced step was added to the front of the tub in increase the flow of foot traffic in the room.
The original shower was more reminiscent of a darken cave as it lacked any natural light and the dimensions were very diminished. A failed shower pan was revealed through the constant trace presence of mold that just could not be cleaned away. These thick rubber pan liners often fail within 10-15 years of construction.
The shower valve (or faucet) and sink faucets were upgraded from polished chromed to brushed nickel finish. A clear glass interior window with brushed nickel frame was added between the larger shower and bath tub. Framing of this new opening allowed for a channel to be above this window for increased air flow to the shower. A properly sealed shower can light was installed to increase the lighting.
An elegant glass door was feature as the entry from the master bedroom to this remodeled master bath room. The white cabinets offered a strong contrast to the solid surface counter tops which coordinated with the tile flooring. Over all this project worked to satisfy the needs and desires of the homeowner and Quinta Contractors, LLC gained another well pleased client.
The master bathroom remodel was but a part of the whole house remodel for Michelle and Buddy performed by Quinta Contractors, LLC. Additions were added to increase the size of the dinning room and living area as well as a large storage room. Michelle’s bathroom retained the same footprint but gained an entirely new look.
Buddy’s New Custom Bath Tub
Tile was removed from the existing floor and shower. The bath tub was removed as well. Plans called for a new jetted bath tub. In fact, the jacuzzi bath tub was custom made to seat two and included a granite tub deck to match the new granite counter tops.
Buddy’s Remodeled Shower
The new shower walls and ceiling received Travertine tumbled marble 4″x4″ tile on a diagonal pattern. Travertine tile also adorned the wall border with matching pencil trim. An arched door way was created to add more definition to the overall design.
Michelle selected polished chrome for the finish on the tub, sink, and shower fixtures. The existing cabinet height was increased by 4″ and then we resurfaced the cabinets. Custom doors were fabricated for the front side of the bath tub to match the refaced cabinets. New lighting changes included recessed or can lighting in the ceiling. Crown molding and new wallpaper completed the bathroom remodel by our professional craftsmen at Quinta.
