Get the full story of this interesting bathroom remodel project by reading the blog posts for Part 1 and Part 2.
The two bathrooms in a charming 1920 brick craftsman home are nearing completion. With one bathroom 99% complete and operational, it’s time to fine-tune all the finishing touches!
But this is when attention to detail is most crucial. The devil is definitely in the details. So at this point we painstakingly work through all the finishing touches to make the project shine. No rushing allowed.
Bathrooms typically have many finishes that need to fit together like a perfectly connected puzzle. There is floor and wall tile, wainscot, cabinetry, trim, shower glass, paint, light fixtures, plumbing fixtures and accessories. Overlooking the quality installation of any of these elements can result in them looking like afterthoughts. To pull together a beautifully finished room that also functions beautifully, it’s worth spending the time to install them correctly.
Floor and wall tile should be scribed to the walls and fixtures similar to the way these have been fitted around the original bathtub. Door and window trim should be cut to intersect in a manner that creates a precise meeting of materials and for functionality. A perfect union is necessary. There’s no such thing as “close enough.”
Tile also looks better when grout joints line up and tiles are left in full pieces. Cuts will be inevitable, but placing them in the least conspicuous places will provide a much more pleasing appearance.
If you invest in a well-done remodeling project, you’ll want it quickly completed so you can enjoy your investment. Just remember, getting the details right may take a little more time. And if your contractor cuts corners on your gorgeous new bathroom remodel, you’ll have a devil of a time getting it fixed.
