Paula’s Master Bathroom

Paula and husband Jeff had already used Quinta Contractors, LLC for projects such as vinyl replacement windows and replacing a storm door.  This time the request was a bit larger, gutting the master bathroom and starting the design with a clean slate.  Paula contacted Quinta and requested that Bryan design her new bathroom.

The ideas would need to be bold and striking in order to transform the outdated bathroom.  The existing bathroom housed what we in the business refer to as a “cave shower”, a small and dark 3 foot by 3 foot square shower with a fir down which created a lowered ceiling.

These showers often become laden with mold and mildew.  The cause of these unwanted guest are two fold: the shower pan (a thick rubberized liner) under the shower floor tile begins to leak and the second problem is the lack of natural light and air ventilation for the shower stall.  The lack of room to move freely in these types showers is also a constant source of frustration for their owners.  Once the shower pan has failed repair is not really an option; replacement is the only fix for a damaged shower pan.

Bryan’s design would require removing a non load bearing wall separating the double vanity area from the bath tub, shower, and commode section.   The floral wallpaper was a constant reminder of days gone by (most of our remodels do not include wallpaper as a part of the design).  The small glossy white floor tiles required an abundance of grout lines.  The bathroom actually was host to a stand alone shower and a bath tub/ shower combo.   Bryan and homeowner, Paula, were in agreement the bathroom lacked adequate storage and had some wasted space that needed to be reclaimed.

 

 

So bring on the creativity, please!

 Once the wall was removed from the foot print or flooring plan, the designer had a new and empty canvass for the design.  Eliminating the stand up shower was a must.  The tub/ shower combo wasn’t needed or useful any longer either.  Bryan created a concept board revealing the new foot print (including a 4 foot by 6 foot shower with frameless glass walls), the new vanity, granite counter tops and shower seat, sink and shower faucets, wall coverings, lighting fixtures, floor and shower floor tile, the addition of crown molding and custom cabinets.  Paula was elated to see the possibilities for her new bath.

After some minor changes to the over all design concept, the demolition began.  Out with the old and in with the new.  Paula’s budget and expectationswere ultimately satisfied with another custom renovation performed by the crews at Quinta Contractors, LLC.  She  was pleased to find herself in a new bathroom which met her needs and definitely provided her a bathroom to be proud of for years to come.

Michelle and Buddy’s New Bathroom

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.

 

 

 

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.

Randall’s Bathroom

Randall’s Bathroom Before 

Randy (Randall) had an extra bathroom which had suffered from years of neglect. The bathroom plumbing developed a leak and the water was shut off in lieu of a repair at the time. Subsequently this bath became a catch all for storage and the bedroom it was a attached to also saw little use for guests. That was all about to change.

Bryan Holloway, President of Quinta Contractors, LLC  met with Randy to redesign the bathroom and make the most of the small 5′ x 10′ full bath. Upon initial inspection of the existing foot print, it was determined that the claw foot bath tub would be discarded in favor of a walk-in shower. A full wall mirror had been used behind the tub in order to give the appearance that the room was larger; this too, would certainly be removed as this would be the new rear wall of the shower.

Repairs were made to the damaged plumbing; then the rebuilding began. A pocket door  was selected in order to lessen the disruption to the new bathroom. Ceramic tile was used on the floor and walls alike. The tile was enhanced by a matching tile border used at approximately four feet from the floor. The new shower was built to have a curtain rod extended from a six inch wall on left and right separating the shower from the rest of the bathroom.

Randy selected and purchased a free standing vanity which resembled a piece of furniture and had an above mounted wash basin. Polished chrome was used on the light fixture, sink faucet, and shower fixture. Since the existing window would be included in the shower area, a vinyl replacement window with obscure glass was installed in order to keep the room as low maintenance as possible. Crown molding was installed in the entire
bathroom. The room was completed by the installation of a low profile porcelain toilet. Randy was finally proud to invite guests to stay over, again.
