This Fountain Hills homeowner came to us with a problem. Her bathroom was not only still hanging out in the 80’s, it was a safety hazard. As we age, stepping in and out of a slippery bathtub or shower every day can be very dangerous. You know as well as I do that the older we get, the harder it is on our bodies to fall, and recovery from a small tumble can take weeks, if not months. For this reason alone, we work with a lot of retirees on updating their bathrooms to be safer and more functional places in their homes.
Not only was safety a priority, but staying within her budget was at the top of her list. We had the perfect solution. Granitex is a man-made material that is not only cost-effective but is also very easy to maintain and is very durable. Each piece of Granitex we install is custom made to fit the space so there are very few seams where water can seep in and cause leaking. This also makes Granitex a modern material that’s aesthetically pleasing.
We worked with the homeowner to pick out her perfect color pattern, took measurements, and then off we went to get her custom countertop/sink combo and shower panels made. While they were being manufactured, we utilized our time and continued remodeling the bathroom.
We replaced the outdated vanity cabinets with new modest cabinetry in a beautiful dark stain. The mirrors and medicine cabinets were updated, along with new brushed nickel plumbing fixtures and hardware. New porcelain tile flooring was installed to be functional and easy to maintain. We replaced the toilet with a comfort height unit which is always a good choice as we age.
When the Granitex was ready, we finished the walk-in shower by installing the Granitexnon-slip floor, added the new Granitex panels to the walls, installed new plumbing fixtures, added a fixed head shower with magnetic docking detachable personal shower and topped it all off with beautiful modern sliding glass shower doors.
Now her master bathroom is clean, modern, low maintenance, safe, and enjoyable to spend time in. This homeowner is thrilled with the end result, and so are we. We are confident that she no longer has to worry about safety while using her bathroom.
We regularly work with homeowners on a budget and homeowners looking to make their living spaces more accessible. Please contact us to schedule a free consultation to remodel your bathroom.
