Keith’s Master Bathroom Remodel

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.

Remodel During Re-construction

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.

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.

Kitchen Cabinets

Jo Ann's Kitchen (3)

Is your kitchen looking a little dated to you?  Are you tired of the flaws in your builder’s grade cabinets or have you grown weary of replacing the failing hinges and hardware? Perhaps you believe there just has to be a more functional layout for your kitchen.  These are all standard reasons given by our clients during the initial interview regarding the remodeling of their kitchen.

 

So, lets focus on one element of the kitchen, granted a big one, kitchen cabinets.  All to often home owners find that the cabinets selected by their home’s builder are just not satisfactory.  The cabinet industry has made many improvements in the last decade or decades (depending on the age of your home).  We now can include options like roll out shelves and drawer units which are large enough for pots and pans, talk about getting organized!

We have the ability now, to add matching end panels whether you choose full over lay or half overlay doors and drawers.  Accent lighting can be integral to the cabinets and even be used behind glass to draw attention to your individual decor.  There are spice racks and appliance garages which can be included in the design.  Wine racks and plate racks are great as accents to your new cabinetry.

Okay, envisioning a remodeled kitchen is enticing, but where do you begin?  Contacting Quinta Contractors, LLC for an appointment is your best starting place.  We will schedule a time to meet with you (and your spouse) in order to gain critical input for the design of your new kitchen.  The initial consultation takes one to two hours in order for us to gain a proper scope of the work to be completed.

You know you want it; you just need a plan.  The benefits of using a design/ build firm, such as Quinta Contractors, LLC, to provide remodeling services allows you to entrust the process to qualified professionals.  The secondary meeting is comprised of providing you with a detailed scope of work, 3-D rendering of the new layout for your cabinets, and an estimated cost for the project.  You will have a choice in the species and finish that will adorn your new kitchen cabinets.  The functioning side of the cabinet design also allows you an abundance of options and we will guide you through the process from start to completion.

Quinta installs each set of cabinets with great concern for the details.   After all, the finished appearance of your cabinets will be the cornerstone of your kitchen’s appeal to you, your family, and your friends.  The upgraded quality will prove to enhance the future selling features of your home.  Why delay, when you could be enjoying the new features and benefits of a remodeled kitchen today.  Give us a call and we will make your dream kitchen a reality!

Jo Ann’s Kitchen

 

Jo Ann's New Kitchen

 

Jo Ann was ready to have a kitchen designed and built.  We met Jo Ann and her husband at a local home show.  The previous kitchen had been more useful when she had kids at home and meals were served in the eat-in portion of the kitchen.  The other half of the divided kitchen served as the work-side.

The galley kitchen was narrow and condensed.  The room itself provided ample space but only to the creative eye.  Jo Ann contracted with Quinta to produce a new plan. (Above, left and below)

The new plan provided by Quinta Contractors, LLC would involve gutting the kitchen of all it’s cabinets, counter tops, flooring, and appliances.  Removing the two sets of fir downs (area of short wall above cabinets) was necessary to open the room up and allow for the new cabinetry.  The entire center console housing the refrigerator, range, and cabinets was eliminated from the new design.

Jo Ann's New Kitchen 2

A new set of cabinets was installed perpendicular to the previous center bank with two sets of pan drawers.  The counter top placed on this new island also included a  custom constructed high rise bar top to allow for the option of bar stool seating in the kitchen.  New cabinets were installed on the three outer walls.  These cabinets were a full overlay design with a medium wood tone.  The inset panels on the doors and all end panels were all bead board adding a distinctive look.

Counter tops were constructed of six inch tile and topped with a back splash of the same tile.  The matching sink rail used for the trim on these tops gave it all a nice, sculpted finish.   A custom faux paint job requiring several coats was applied to the walls.

Lighting was another big change in this project.  Square florescent lights were installed in the ceiling, three pendent lights were hung over the bar, and lights were placed in the upper glass cabinets.  White appliances were chosen to add some contrast to the earth tones in the room.  A free-floating laminate was selected for the flooring.

Betsy and Ray’s Master Bathroom Remodel

Betsy and Ray's Master Bathroom

Betsy and Ray’s farm house style home which is situated on 6 acres in Eads, TN, was built in 1991.  They had been planning for some time to have the master bathroom remodeled.  Now, they have a bathroom which suits their taste and has loads of visual appeal.

Bathroom During Demolition

 

We started by gutting the room; we removed all the cabinets, flooring, shower stall, and bathtub.  This is one of the larger bathrooms we have worked on and the original shower had been on of the smallest I have in contrast.  The footprint was changed to accommodate the enlarged shower and the new cabinets included his and hers pantry units for extra storage.

 

Master Bathroom Hers

Master Bathroom Tub

The floor tile had been a white and pink checkerboard pattern which had become an eyesore for the homeowners.  Earth tones were selected throughout the new color scheme, including a marbled ceramic tile for the floor which was carried into the shower.  Oil rubbed bronze trim on the frameless shower glass combined with the new plumbing fixtures complimented the darker mocha glaze applied to the cabinets.  This theme was repeated in the darker bronze handles and pulls of the cabinetry as well as the lighting fixtures.

Master Bath His

The new granite counter tops and tub deck served to bring in the broadest array of the medium and dark earth tones used in this room.  The diamond pattern of the tile shower border was installed to continue as the back splash for the new counter tops.  The mirrors Betsy chose have a stone like frame adding to the natural feel created in this bathroom.

Finally the previously stained doors were painted in the same oil based color as the trim to help lighten the look of the room.  The end result was a bathroom to proudly showcase in this beautiful country home.  Yet, another satisfied customer for Quinta Contractors, LLC.

Carroll’s Remodel

New Master Bath

Carroll and Mell were focused on a bathroom remodel when we met them at a local Memphis Area home show.  They had some ideas for a new bath but needed someone like the pros at Quinta to help them flesh out those ideas.  The foot print was to stay the same and the cabinets were found to be in great condition.

New Master Bath Shower

So, it was determined to remove the existing flooring, counter tops, shower, and bath tub.  The versailles pattern of the new tumbled Travertine flooring provided a generous break from the grout patterns found in the new shower.  Six inch Travertine tiles were selected to line the shower walls and a beautiful contrasting border was added and carried over behind the new whirlpool fiberglass, corner tub for a backsplash.

Master Bath

Black solid surface countertops with white oval sinks provided the necessary contrasting color to the nuetral tone of the cabinets.  Brushed nickel trim was selected for the shower door trim and plumbing fixtures.  Visits to the local home improvement stores left Carol wanting a custom designed mirrors to suit her taste, which Brandon was more than happy to fabricate in his shop.  That is afterall the way we do business at Quinta; we solve problems.

New Counter Tops and Backsplashes

 

Master Bedroom Sitting Area

Pleasantly satisfied with for the new look in the bathroom provided by Quinta Contractors, LLC,  this couple decided to move forward with some addtional remodeling.  Carroll had long since grown tired of the flooring in the den, kitchen and hallways leading to the bedrooms.   She had us remove this flooring as well and carry the same Travertine tile into the master bedroom, kitchen, and hallways.  The rich, dark mahogany hardwood flooring we installed in the living room and dining room again, provided the sharp contrast in the nuetral earth tone chosen for the walls.  A deep red was selected for the vaulted ceilings furthering the color palette even more.

 

New Hardwood Floors

We dug further into our resources bringing carpentry to the job site, by installing a wainscoating in the eat-in portion of the kitchen.  The existing wallbase was removed and then bead board panels were installed with new wall base, quater round, and a base cap to top off the wainscoating.  Our highly skilled painters finished off this segment of the job by painting the bead board and new trim in a semi-gloss sheen to match the other existing trim.

Kitchen with Travertine Flooring, New Counter Tops, and Bead Board

The job did not end there; a few more finishing touches were needed.  The kitchen cabinets were adorned with new black solid surface counter tops with bits of granite provide a glimmer of silver in the background.  A backsplash consisting six inch tile and dark metal deco tiles was laid on a diagonal pattern.  The inlay of tile was removed from the fireplace surround and Travertine was also installed.

 

Kitchen with New Bead Board

Carroll and Mell have been some of our strongest advocates by promoting our services to their family and friends.  Just one more success story to the long list of clients who find that hiring Quinta Contractors, LLC  was one of the best decisions for their home improvement projects.  We have strived for more than a decade to bring quality, custom work to our market place and end every project with a satistfied customer.

Bathroom Remodel

Michelle and Buddy's Counter Tops

Real-estate professionals have long touted the advantages of kitchen and bathroom remodeling.  The “best bang for the buck” can come from an updated kitchen or bath as these are the primary areas of focus for the prospective buyer.  While resale is an obvious motivation, why not look to the enjoyment that a new bathroom or kitchen can provide you and your family now?

Let’s narrow the discussion today to bathrooms; Quinta Contractors is a design/ build firm and thus we are able to aid you in every step required to get to your new bathroom.  The existing bathroom can often times be limited by the original specs of the home which most often never considered the needs and desires of the current homeowner. Cabinetry, like so many other aspects of home renovations is constantly evolving with improvements and additional styles.  Storage can be greatly improved with just the right designed layout.  One my favorite solutions is adding a standing linen cabinet to the layout to get the most out the space.

So, what ideas do you have?  Are you hoping to increase the size of your shower?  We often encounter dark, dingy showers which resemble caves with little or no natural light available and the presence of mold and mildew.  This unsightly mold and mildew is most often caused by the failure of the shower pan (a piece of vinyl which is installed between the foundation and the mortar bed located beneath the shower floor).
