Create the Oasis You’ve Always Desired
If you are looking to renovate your existing bathroom, or planning to add a bathroom or shower to a basement, give me a call at 226-663-5321 or send me an email to set up your free in-home consultation. I can help you create that oasis you’ve always wanted in your home. A bathroom is the place you can relax, recover, and retreat. I work to create an amazing bathroom and shower that suits your specific needs. We offer face lifts, minor renovations, and full bathroom remodels through out London, Ontario and surrounding areas.
Bathroom renovations are exciting but they can also be stressful (as you may’ve seen on TV). My job is to navigate those difficulties. I handle the project from beginning to completion, bringing in talented people to assist me in creating the perfect job for you – no matter the scope. From complete ripouts and redesigns to quick upgrades when preparing to sell your home.
Many newer homes have unfinished basements. The plumbing has been roughed in so you know that someone anticipated a basement bath but now you need to go ahead and complete it. This project on Maidstone will turn an empty space into a luxurious 3-piece bathroom. Custom glass, custom shower, heated floors.
This bathroom is 100 years old. Yes, 100. The pipes were 40 years past end of life, the walls were 3 inches of masonry atop metal lathe. The home is a double brick home – no studs. This was a messy, messy tear out. Tons (literally) of plaster, masonry, and building materials. And while the existing structure was sound, much of it was crooked, warped, and twisted after a century.
This is a newer home so the challenges are far different than a bathroom remodel in Old South or Old North. The plumbing was already roughed in, the layout was already completed, and the drywall was ready. In other words – half the work had already been completed by the builder. Check out the Project Scrapbook for more pictures of this renovation.
The Vintage Look
Edward Street was a century home where the customers wanted to keep the original feel of the bathroom and decided to go with a 1920s themed design. This incorporated subway tile, 1-inch hex floor tile, a restored roll-top tub (claw foot), retro toilet and industrial-chic sink. Of course, some modern day amenities were also added, including a heated floor.
Many homes use the 5×8 foot configuration. This home (1950s) had a chimney (but no fireplace) in the middle of the house which made a layout difficult. In this instance, we increased the size of the bathroom by using an unused alcove from the adjoining dining room.
Old South Reno
A typical Old South bathroom. By typical, I mean that nothing is typical! The layout was terrible, and the entire room was made with plywood rather than plaster or drywall.
