South St. Paul Bathroom Remodel

This home in South St. Paul was built in the 1940’s, and showed many signs of aging.  After demolition and before the finish work began, upgrades were made to the aging plumbing and electrical systems.  In addition, the original window was replaced with a more efficient glass block window.

To gain some space in the tiny bathroom, the door was replaced with a pocket door.  To add some much-needed storage, a linen closet was built with custom oak cabinetry surrounding it.  Space for the closet was borrowed from an adjacent bedroom closet.

Our clients wish to live in their home for as long as possible, so some aging-in-place touches were added as well.  As designers, we are grateful to the fixture manufacturers fro finally providing grab bars and other accessories that don’t look so institutional.

The beautiful finishes in this bathroom include porcelain tile, fixtures from Delta, and a clear glass shower door that allows the beautiful tile work and additional light from the window to show through.

Home Remodel in Little Canada

This project touched every single room of this 4-level split in Little Canada MN.

Highlights include:

Full remodels of two bathrooms

Partial remodel of a third bathroom

Painting of all walls and ceilings in the entire home

New floorcovering in every room of the home, including carpet, vinyl, and tile

Updated lighting

 

Since our clients were living in the home throughout the project, we decided to perform the transformation in two phases:  First the lower two levels, and then the upper two levels.  A furniture moving company was hired to relocate our clients belongings prior to each phase, and again at the completion of all of the work. At the conclusion of the project, our professional cleaning team removed all traces of dust and remodeling residue.

Our designer worked tirelessly with the clients to perfect all of the numerous choices in flooring, tile patterns, and paint colors.  She even helped our client hang her pictures and artwork.  Since each room of the home was touched by the project, careful consideration was given to how the different colors and textures work together.

Among the challenges that were faced and overcome:  A hidden mouse infestation that required much disinfectant and odor-blocking primer, An alarm system installation that had wires snaked where our hardwood floors needed to go, and a sensitive fire alarm that was set off during a wood cutting operation (You’ll be glad to know that the Little Canada Fire Chief is a nice fellow).

 

TESTIMONIAL

“Eric and Ruth Bader presented a personal, professional and competent response to the project that I proposed to them.  Never did I sense reluctance or unwillingness to adjust or modify what I wanted done.  Their suggestions were also made with an understanding of my needs and the outcomes that I wanted.
They have assembled a quality team of trades-people who were friendly, professional, and competent.
Over the 2-1/2 months of work, I felt my home and the project were in good hands.  I appreciated that all the work was supervised, double checked for perfection, and generally completed on schedule.  Thanks for a job well done!”

BATHROOM IN INVER GROVE

This project touched every room of the home:  full kitchen and bathroom remodels, as well as new doors, trim, and flooring throughout.  In addition, the popcorn ceiling texture was removed and new knockdown texture was applied, followed by fresh paint on all of the walls and ceilings.

This Inver Grove Heights kitchen still had all of it’s original 1978 parts.  A full gut and remodel included plumbing and electrical upgrades.  The soffit was removed to allow full-height cabinetry and maximize the storage space.  Oak cabinets and Cambria countertops look great and will hold up for many years.

The bathroom tub/shower features two recessed niches and two corner shelves for storage, porcelain tile with a stone and copper inlay, and a deep soaking tub for a relaxing soak after a hard day.  A custom oak vanity provides plenty of storage and is topped with Cambria quartz.  The heated tile floor feels great on a cold winter day.  Custom touches include “floating” wood shelves and a custom robe hook rack.

In the living room, we replaced the sooty wood fireplace with a clean gas fireplace, custom cabinetry, stone surround, and marble tile hearth.  A custom mission-style guardrail surrounds the stairway to the basement.

The entire home received numerous lighting upgrades, including custom lighting in the glass-front cabinets, undercabinet lighting in the kitchen, and recessed lighting with dimmer switches.

TESTIMONIAL

“The job took six weeks and it could not have gone smoother. We were updated with each step and things moved quickly.

BATHROOM WITH WHIRLPOOL

This bathroom remodeling project in Inver Grove Heights posed some interesting challenges, such as a corner bathtub that was barely large enough to fit a small child.  In addition, our client couple is 6’9″ and 5’3” tall, so we needed to come up with a plan to accommodate both of them.  Our solutions included a 6′ whirlpool tub, comfort height toilet, and an extra tall vanity.  The mirror tilts, allowing users of all sizes to prepare for the day comfortably.  Porcelain tile mimics the look of stone without the maintenance.

ITALIAN TRAVERTINE BATHROOM

Outdated olive green tiles and a mirrored shower door were banished and replaced with beautiful Italian travertine stone and oil-rubbed bronze fixtures and shower door. Due to the age of the home, extensive plumbing and electrical upgrades were necessary.  This bathroom also features extensive tile work, imported tile, a new window, and a new exhaust fan.

 

TESTIMONIAL

“Eric and his team did a wonderful job on our bathroom remodel project. The workmanship was outstanding. During the project, Eric kept us informed of his progress, was on site when he said he would be, cleaned up the work space and surrounding areas before leaving each day and completed the project on time. These are things you expect from a contractor.

Eric also brings some unexpected things as well: honesty, integrity, and a genuine concern for our satisfaction. He is also very well organized and is willing to spend time discussing options, recommending materials and suppliers and explaining solutions to problems in a manner that is honest and easy to understand. We would not hesitate to hire Eric again or recommend him to anyone.”

POWDER ROOM REMODELING WITH POLISH

Since this bathroom is the primary one that is used by guests, our Mendota Heights clients wished to transform this powder room into a more comfortable and luxurious space.  The seizure-inducing chessboard tile was replaced with polished marble.  A comfort-height toilet is more comfortable for guests of all sizes.  The maple cabinetry with espresso finish provides storage for extra tissue and other items.  Also included in this project is a Cambria Quartz countertop, which is topped with a Kohler sink and Delta faucet.

 

 

TESTIMONIAL

“We hired Allrounder Remodeling to remodel 3 bathrooms in our new home before we moved in. We were on a very tight timeframe and they did everything in their power to get the project done on time and on budget. From the initial consultation to the final walk-thru they were nothing but professional. I loved the fact that they would give me regular email updates on the progress they had made on any given day and what we could expect to see in the upcoming days. I trusted them completely in our home when we were not there. We could not be more pleased with the work they did. We would hire them again in a second. “

KIDS BATHROOM REMODEL in MENDOTA HEIGHTS

Believe it or not, the blue fixtures in this Mendota Heights bathroom were an upgrade at the time that it was originally built.  Our renovation included porcelain tile that mimics the look of honed concrete, maple cabinetry with an espresso finish, Cambria countertop, and fixtures by Kohler and Delta.  Since it’s primary use is by children, our client opted for an easy to clean acrylic tub & shower surround instead of tile.

GUEST BATHROOM RETREAT in EAGAN

After completing their main floor bathroom remodel, our Eagan clients immediately had us begin work on their guest bathroom.  This space had been built by a previous homeowner, and it showed!  Upon demolition, our team discovered numerous plumbing and electrical code violations that needed to be addressed.  In addition, walls were out of plumb and needed to be extensively shimmed in order for the shower wall tile to lay flat.

In the end, our efforts resulted in a beautiful guest bathroom.  Highlights include a spacious tiled shower, furniture-style vanity, a sleek toilet that is easy to clean, and new solid pine doors.

 

TESTIMONIAL

“I’m a product of the HGTV generation. I wanted the Property Brothers to come to my house. Eric was the next best thing. We spent about an hour going through all of our needs and wants. He took measurements. Within a few days he provided us with the most organized quote I’ve ever seen. Everything was broken down into sections; plumbing, electrical, tile, etc. Allowances for materials were clearly visible. This made it very easy to stay within budget. My husband and I were adamant that we would pick materials under the allowance as to save money. Eric’s methodology made this possible. Once we agreed to hire him, we were provided with a very detailed timeline. Eric and Ruth took us shopping for materials. A revised quote was provided to us right before work was started based on our actual purchases. Once work started things went very smoothly. Everyday the work site was cleaned up so that we could actually still live in our house comfortably. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome.”

GREY CLASSIC BATHROOM REMODEL

This oddly shaped bathroom in Rosemount MN presented our design team with a few challenges.  First up was a skinny closet that is so deep, you couldn’t reach the back of it.  Our solution was to add some pullout drawers to allow access to everything inside.  The leaking shower was replaced with tile and a custom glass door.  The vanity is furniture-style and topped with Cambria quartz.

Again, this was a very detailed, organized process. We received a CR (change request) that detailed the new items. Due to adding on the new job, our overall project was extended by a few weeks, but we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. We’re actually wrapping up the entire project this week and have already started the quote process for our next major project: the downstairs bathroom and family room.”

Twin Cities bathtub installations

TWIN CITIES BATHROOM FEATURING FREE STANDING TUB

Our Twin Cities clients’ goals for the project were to eliminate the awful pink whirlpool tub and replace it with a free-standing soaker tub.  In addition, they wished for a larger vanity to increase storage and counter space.  In a perfect world, we would have relocated walls to create more space, but unfortunately we were “land locked” between two exterior walls and a large fireplace.  Our design team were forced to design within the space that we had, and they did a great job.

The end result is quite stunning, with a maple cabinet with whitewashed finish, Cambria countertops, and gorgeous tile surrounding the spacious soaker tub.  The shower features porcelain tile and a custom glass enclosure.
