2 Bathroom RenovationsPosted by Anne C. in Brooklyn Heights
I've lived in my house 18 years. Time to update the bathrooms
Scope of work
In one bathroom, replace shower with tub, in the other put in new tub. In both, new tile, faucets, lights, radiant heat, minor accessories. In one, if possible, pocket door
Gennadiy and his team were great. We renovated two bathrooms. In our main bath we got rid of the tub and replaced it with a walk-in shower, added heated floors, re-tiled the walls and floors and put in new lighting and fixtures. Downstairs, we replaced a shallow tub with a much deeper one, added heated floors, re-tiled, and replaced fixtures and lighting. I had a pretty clear idea of what I wanted to do before posting the job on Sweeten, and had selected the lighting, fixtures and most tiles. Gennadiy suggested where to look for the last of the tile and sourced other missing items. He made suggestions to tweak my ideas, all for the better. I had hoped for a curbless shower. However, after demo began and the plumber came in, the placement of the existing drain pipe and floor joists made that ridiculously complicated. (Always surprises with a house over 100 years old) I was initially quite disappointed. But once Gennadiy explained the obstacles, I understood. And once he described what he could do instead, I felt better. I love the end result. One of the team probably had my favorite idea. Our downstairs bath is an old extension. The window was in a very thick external wall, set flush with the interior. Victor suggested moving the window to be flush with the exterior, creating a ledge. Once he said it, it seemed so obvious, but it had never occurred to us. Gennadiy bought a beautiful piece of marble for the ledge. We now love our downstairs bathroom more than we were ever expecting. I would definitely use them again.
See above - found a very satisfying solution when I could not get the curdles shower I initially wanted.
Attention to detail and eye for design.
