Beautiful Bathroom Remodel

   

During the late 1980’s, whirlpool tubs with smaller showers were quite popular as a therapeutic way to relax or relieve joint and muscle pains. However, these days, people have found that they lack the time to use a whirlpool as it was intended in this fast-paced world. Additionally, with the amount of space that whirlpools take up, many feel they aren’t very practical or comfortable in most bathrooms.

A local Rochester, New York area couple decided that their master bathroom was simply no longer practical or functional. In this case, the whirlpool took up most of the space leaving a 36-inch space for a shower. They reached out to the Leone for help to design an elegant, fully functional master bath.

We were able to re-design the bathroom incorporating a large, more comfortable shower complete with bench and large recessed niche to hold plenty of product from tall to short. We were also able to incorporate a much larger vanity with two sinks and two mirrors with plenty of counter space in-between for all their needs.

Some of the work performed to reach this customers’ goals were:

  • Remove existing shower and whirlpool tub
  • Relocate plumbing as needed to eliminate the tub and add a walk-in shower
  • Relocate toilet, vanity and drain for shower to accommodate new layout
  • Install one GFI outlet for vanity
  • Build custom walk-in shower
  • Install new vanities – one dual sink with double mirrors for the couple, one sinkless vanity to be used as the make-up area
  • All new tiling, flooring, and paint throughout
  • An additional cabinet for linen and make up storage

By the time the work was completed, the customers now had an extremely functional master bath! As a bonus, we were even able to incorporate a matching free-standing linen cabinet for additional storage. Together with the espresso finish and brushed nickel for all the matching pieces, this fully functional bathroom became a work of art!

Complete Bathroom Remodel

before-after-pic

Every member of the Leone Team strives to ensure that each customer feels like they are an active member in the remodel projects we handle for them. We encourage them to choose their own styles, colors, and materials so that we can ensure they will be satisfied with the work performed.

After living in her home for many years, our customer decided that it was time for a change. Her bathroom was of a typical style with a tub, sink with mirror, and toilet. All of which was rather outdated, and she desired a more comfortable and modern look for her bathroom.

To achieve this, she hired Leone Plumbing to perform a complete bathroom remodel, which included the following work:

  • Convert standard bath tub into a walk-in shower with all new faucets, a handheld shower spicket, and grab bars
  • Installation of new subfloors, moisture resistant drywall
  • Installation of tile, not only on the shower walls, but also the entire bathroom flooring
  • Relocate plumbing as needed and provide electric as well as a GFI for the new vanity
  • Build a corner bench within the new stand-up shower
  • Installation of tile backsplash from floor to ceiling with mosaic
  • Paint the entire bathroom where tile was not installed

The result of the Leone Team’s diligent work and the customer’s unique selections in colors and tiles is absolutely stunning! A vertical mosaic backsplash up the back wall of the shower really brought a touch of class to her new modernized bathroom. The vanity, with matching backsplash, provided the ultimate finishing touch to tie in all the elegance and style she had been longing for.

She was extremely satisfied once the Leone Team had finished their work, saying “I give your company a five star rating. Had a great experience remodeling bathroom from start to finish. From tearing out old bathroom (replacing tub with walk in shower) to finish, work was completed in a professional, neat, and systematic manner. I was not afraid to ask questions which were always answered.”

Handicap/Wheelchair Accessible Bathroom Remodel

ADA Bathroom Remodel   As you live in your home for an extensive period of time, you may have found that your lifestyle tends to slowly change. With this, the functionality of your home can become less and less useful. There are several things that can be done to enhance your home or bathroom’s ability to serve your lifestyle. One of those is a handicap/wheelchair accessible remodel.

What makes your bathroom handicap/wheelchair accessible?
  • 36 inch doorways
  • Ramps for any change of elevation
  • 5 foot turning radius in bathrooms
  • No thresholds to enter and exit showers
  • Sinks should not be mounted more then 34 inches from finished floor
  • Sink knee clearance of 27 inches from the finished floor
  • Sink should be 30 inches wide
  • Insulation around exposed plumbing
  • 48 inch clearance from toilet to finished wall in front
  • 42 inch clearance from center of toilet to sink
  • 36 inch toilet compartments
  • Grab bars installed between 33 and 36 inches off the floor behind and next to toilet
  • Grab bars installed in shower between 33 and 36 inches off the floor
  • Shower have controls between 38 and 48 inches off finished floor
  • Shower head/hand held minimum 18 inches off of the side wall
Although a fully handicap accessible home can entail a large number of modifications, it does not necessarily mean that all of them need to be made to accommodate your needs. Typically, our bathroom remodel customers choose a subset of the above specifications to fit their needs.

In December, an older couple that has lived in the Rochester area for their entire lives contacted us because their powder room was not functional according to their needs anymore. The bathroom’s design created a space that lacked in wheelchair accessibility.

Some of the work done for this bathroom remodel included the following:
  • A complete tear out of the existing bathroom
  • Relocation of the door side to accommodate the new ramp built from the kitchen to the living room
  • Relocation of a wall to accommodate the new walk-in shower
  • Reversal of where the toilet and vanity were originally
  • Grab bars installed on the walls next to the toilet and inside the walk-in shower
Upon completion of the remodel, the Rochester couple provided us with feedback that they were extremely satisfied. They mentioned that they are able to make use of their bathroom in a much more convenient and practical manner.

Bathroom Shower Rochester NYBathroom Design Rochester, NY complete bathroom design rochester, ny Renovating their master bathroom into a peaceful oasis is the dream of many homeowners. When you combine the hustle and bustle of today’s working world with the non-stop activity of many families, it is no wonder so many homeowners are seeking their own personal hideaway within the home. After all, it is important to have a place to both prepare for the day ahead and to unwind at the end of that day, making bathroom remodeling a growing trend with custom bathroom design Rochester, NY atop the list.

To that end, homeowners are often choosing a soothing earthy color palette or a palette with a lot of blue and turquoise to evoke calming waters. In addition, homeowners are choosing to add such features as steam showers and soaking tubs to further maximize the spa-like feel. Today more and more homeowners are asking for larger showers, often with multiple showerheads and benches. These larger showers are usually tiled and equipped with hinged glass doors to keep them light and airy rather than overwhelming. Along with the larger shower, many homeowners are opting for luxuries like heated floor tiles and towel warmers. These features can be especially nice during the cold Rochester winters and also contribute to the soothing spa ambiance.

Leone Plumbing was so responsive when I called regarding a clogged kitchen sink. I was able to get same day service and Jameson arrived during the service window I was promised. He was friendly and professional, up front about the cost associated with the issue, and the process to get the issue resolved. He did a fantastic job, cleaned up thoroughly, and provided some great tips so that the issue wouldn’t happen again. I will definitely be calling Leone Plumbing again when another issue arises.

I write very few reviews however, I feel as though this one needed to be reviewed. 7am on a Friday and we wake up to a leak with our tankless water heater, literally calling around leaving messages. Andy returned my call almost immediately. We talked through the logistics and he gave me a price and said he could do it same day. (no one else even had one available to do same day!) It wasn't cheap but it was necessary. As promised the boys showed up in the p.m. swapped it out and were gone by dinner time. I never, ever would have known he was handling all of this while on the road bringing his kid home from college. Honestly one of the most professional companies I have ever dealt with. You rock Andy!!!! Thank you so very much!!

I unfortunately had to contact Leone Plumbing due to an unknown leak. They came out right away and found the leak was actually a water line in my refrigerator. There was so much damage and I honestly had no clue what to do. Best part about Andy is that he was able to help out with everything. He explained the insurance process to me and talked to the adjusters for me. He kept me in the loop and he was able to turn my kitchen into a brand new one. I am more than happy with their service and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND their services. They are an honest hard working company that looks out for their customers.
