Shower Remodel in Old Home in Belmont Addition

basement finishing St LouisLocated in a 1950′s style condo, this bathroom had been updated in the 1970′s. It had all the trappings of a dated bathroom and even had the original layer of tile which had been covered with faux marble. It was dark and had carpet flooring. We updated it to look modern, installed a jet tub, pedestal sink and travertine on the floors and walls. We also installed canned lights and a sconce light over the mirror. Even if you are going to invest in your basement then you should hire the services of basement finishing st Louis.

Among the ugliest bathrooms we come across are those that were created in the 1950′s. These tend to have brightly colored tiles in pinks or yellows, cheap built in cabinets , fir downs over the tub that make you feel claustrophobic with shower heads aimed at your chest and rusty iron tubs. The floor tile is usually not attractive and the windows are the cheapest you can get, plain aluminum. This bathroom was no exception to that rule. The client wanted a bathroom that looked like it was out of the 1930′s. To do this we installed a clawfoot tub, double pedestal vanities, 2 swivel mirrors and lights overhead. The floor used hex tiles and we installed glass blocks for privacy.

Nesbit Downstairs Bathroom Remodel

This bathroom remodeling project took place in Junius Heights. The original bathroom was quite worn out and somewhat dated. We are not sure if this was the original bathroom in this 1930′s tudor/ craftsman house, but the blue tile does not seem typical of that time period. The owners wanted a period bathroom with an all new interior. When we remodeled it we restored it back to a more authentic looking 1920′s bathroom and made it look larger using white tiles and light color. We Utilized subway tiles, hex tiles and small square tiles to form a mosaic around the perimeter. It turned out to be a really pretty bathroom.

This project involved an addition on the back of a house in Hollywood Heights. We are added a large 12x 13 master bathroom using the original window. We used 117 siding to replicate a period looking addition. The bathroom has a tub and shower and a nice walk in closet. Of course we have added several modern amenities including a hot water pump to move hot water to the bath quickly, and a solar tube skylight to maximize natural light. We also installed 2 lights and 2 cans to create ample lighting. In the closet we installed 3 clothes racks and a wall of shelves to give the client lots of additional storage.
