A Simple Yet Elegant Half Bath

This serene half bath remodeling project in Shaker Heights, Ohio features natural stone wall and floor tiles, a pedestal sink, and a mirror set in stone. Due to several fortunate coincidences this was a much less invasive bathroom project than with most homes of this age, built in this area. That allowed for upgraded materials to be used while keeping within a particular budget.

Client Feedback

“The bathroom is fabulous!   Everybody has commented on the tile and the mirror. We haven’t had a single person who has ever seen a bathroom mirror framed by tile. I want to get our 2 second floor bathrooms done!  

“Thanks so much!  And a big thank you for once again sticking to the completion date!”
