A complete remodel of the bathroom; to create a more open space and better storage options without blowing out a wall to expand the area. The O’Shea’s choose to work with a contractor to help with the challenges of the scope of their project. They Chose Lloyd E. Bennett Construction in Skaneatekes, New York.
The look and feel of the bathroom before the start of the project was confining with little storage space to prevent the bathroom from looking cluttered. In order to create a more open feel and with the need to add storage means a complete tear down and rebuild project.
Starting with tearing all drywall from the ceiling and walls. Pulling up and removing the linoleum floors. Then pulling the old fiberglass insulation; then ripping out the existing tub and fixtures.
Tearing was completed, therefore it became time to replace insulation in the ceiling and walls. Support boards along the bottom of the walls and install a new circulation fan. Once the tub was out of the way; it made it easier to access and replace the old window with a new updated one.
Next steps were adding the water-proof wall boards, painting the ceiling and walls, and then tiling the bathroom floor. Along with some fabrication for additional storage by creating a 6 foot recessed towel cabinet with door giving sufficient storage space without losing floor space or cluttering up the area.
In order to create a more open layout for the bathroom, it was decided to forego installing a tub and creating a walk-in shower unit with recessed shelving for Shampoo, Conditioner, soaps and all shower needs. The shower trim and door selection were made at our Visionary Baths & More showroom in Auburn, New York with the help of Christine Baier. Shower trim used is Moen Align, the shower valve and diverter valve used are the t2192 and t4191 accompanied by the handheld showerhead with slide bar 3558ep, all with a chrome finish. The shower door chosen is a swinging Basco Preseria (PRE935SVCL) featuring clear glass with a chrome frame. With using the check-in off on yelp they were able to save 10% OFF all purchases on their first visit (see yelp check-in offer for all details).
Once the tile was complete it was time to place the new toilet and mount the sink and medicine cabinet.
Lastly, adding towel bars and other accents for the bathroom to complete a more open and updated fresh look.
Final results are simply astounding.
