During a bathroom remodeling project, great things can happen when contractors, suppliers and homeowners work together on design and delivery. Tina Crabb, of Black Hawk Colorado, was looking to give a facelift to a master bathroom in a home she and her husband purchased 15 years ago. The old bathroom was dated and the jetted spa tub took up too much room and was seldom used.

In Part 1 of this series learn how Tina, in conjunction with Jeff Pettus (owner of general contracting company Snowline Designs) and Ray Visco (owner of Visco Tile and Stone), identified and used innovative bathroom accessories and other products to create an impressive bath design which combined dramatic style and long term functionality (note: Part 2 of this series focuses on the quality driven installation approach used Jeff and Ray to make sure the project lasts).

The McGuires (who live in a suburb of Cleveland Ohio) had a problem – how could they retain the black and white retro design of their bathroom while making it safer, easier to use and also upgrade the looks without the cost and aggravation of gutting the space.

The main challenges were:

  • A cast iron clawfoot tub which was dangerous to get in and out of.
  • An old brass curved shower rod and stationary shower head which were outdated and covered the view of the decorative tile design.
  • An existing pedestal sink 30” tall which required excessive bending.
