The Door to Perfection

Knowing that this was their forever home, and their only bathroom, our clients ensured they got everything right from the heated floors to the stunning shower niche mosaic. As avid bubble bath takers, they requested a deep bathtub cavity. They wanted the space to whisper tranquility, which is why they landed on a neutral palette of warm grey tones. Everything ran smoothly and on schedule which was extremely important since they had to coordinate the time of the toilet removal with a time they could stay with friends and family. 

However, two things almost unhinged the entire timeline and project. First, after some consideration the clients decided to not only change the bathroom door, but all the doors in the house. It made sense since they were already under construction and they knew their house needed the update. The bulk order pushed back the delivery. However, the delay was worth it, because a door can really perfect a space. 

The second potential timeline shaker was the tub. Many manufacturers only offer a specific height for their bathtub cavities, which is shallower than the cavities in standard 1960's bathtubs. After finding one, the tub became back-ordered and everyone feared losing the perfect deep cavity. Luckily, our relationship manager, Tammy, spent hours scouring local dealers to find an exact match to the back-ordered tub. Her labor was a success and the finished product was perfection.

"Would highly recommend! The OHI team was very accommodating and helpful from the design team to our project manager and his team. Since we only have one bathroom this was a challenge for us all, we were lucky to have a toilet and the crew knew we were anxious to have our bathroom back. Excellent communication daily, any issues we had were addressed immediately. We couldn't be happier with our new bathroom! The tile work is perfect and all the work was great. The team really paid attention to details. We absolutely love the new window!! Thank you OHi!"

What Will Your Bathroom Cost to Remodel

Find Out

The Bathroom

Before: Hand Painted tiles that were sure to be all the rage back in 1966 filled the whole bathroom from floor to ceiling. Paired with a press-board vanity and an inconvenient soffit over the tub, this bathroom remodeling in Elk Grove was anything but relaxing. It also wasn’t up to code standards, mainly due to poor ventilation.

After: A gorgeous Sorrento vanity stands proud near the entry with deep drawers for storage. The brand new, deep tub is enclosed with a sliding glass door instead of the previous shower curtain. The soffit is removed, and the shower tile is replaced with a more contemporary option. A mosaic shower niche is added, bringing extra character and functionality. A vent is added bringing the bathroom up to code.
