In this bathCRATE project, we just love that this homeowner had us install cabinets under the window to replace their jacuzzi tub! This built-in seating area with extra storage makes a great use of this space. I mean, who doesn’t love to have extra storage? We also love that this homeowner went with a frameless shower door to avoid visually breaking up the space with the large frames. These two elements, along with the darker cabinets and lighter wall and ceiling colors really made this bathroom appear to be so much bigger and inviting!
But don’t just take our word on how well this job turned out. Look below for the customer testimonial, project specifications and extensive before and after pictures!
The Homeowner’s KitchenCRATE Experience
What was your favorite part of the kitchenCRATE process?
Our favorite part of the kitchen crate process was how efficient and easy it was for our remodeling project to take place. The moment we made the first inquiry we were greeted with sincerity and honesty which stood out in everything they did. Everything was up front, no hidden cost and every detail was listed. This allowed us to understand the total cost of our project. In addition, we were provided with a printed out timeline detailing what would happen for each day of our project. Having this timeline allowed us to know what to expect daily. Another example of how efficient this company runs. In addition, we really appreciated that Kitchen Crate provided a wonderful interior designer named, Lindsey. Her expertise was invaluable in bringing together all the patterns, colors and textures that represented our vision. This made our project so much nicer.
What was your favorite part about the kitchenCRATE team?
Our favorite part of the kitchen crate team was how communicative and responsive the team was to all our needs. Our project manager, Aaron, answered and always followed up promptly with any inquiry. He and everybody on the Kitchen Crate team were friendly, caring and always professional. Truly service with a smile and quality customer service.
Was there anything about the process or project that surprised you? If so, what was it?
Just about anybody we have spoken to who has ventured into remodeling always tells us how their projects are not completed on time or the contractors don’t show up. This simply was not the case of having Kitchen Crate do our projects. We were pleasantly surprised when we came home to find our Kitchen Crate container delivered on the date given. Our reality began and we were excited to see our dream get started. From that moment on every day the Kitchen Crate team arrived exactly on schedule, never late, sometimes early. This timely manner contributed to them completing all 3 of our projects right on time! The speed at which they work to do their jobs was never a short cut. They are professionals and it showed in their workmanship. We even added in some extra requests on our projects and they never said, no it couldn’t be done. Instead they added in all our requests and completed the job on time! We couldn’t be happier with all that was done. Our kitchen makes us smile everytime we look at it. We love all the details that were done for us. Our bathrooms are wonderful and we are so happy with the cabinets that were created in place of the out dated sunken tub. I will never miss that tub. Using our master bathroom makes us feel like we are in a retreat every day. One big thing that truly surprised us is that Kitchen Crate never asked for any down payment to do our projects. That’s unheard of these days! Exemplifying once again that they believe in providing quality work and making sure their customers are happy with their completed projects.

Bathroom Day by Day Progress
(Note: We added a few extra days to our normal 7-day process to accommodate the owner-requested add-ons.)
Here’s how we did it:
Day 1 – Demo Day! On this first day, we set up plastic walls to protect the home from dust, protected the path from the entry door to the bathroom with building paper, and then went to town removing the countertops, backsplash, vanity, shower tile, bathtub surround tile, bathtub and flooring.
Day 2 – The electrical team began the wiring for the new lighting and the new shower head valves were installed.
Days 3 & 4 – The sheetrock at the bathtub surround was repaired and prepared for new paint. A new shower pan liner and trench drain were installed. The team also installed new cabinets were the bathtub used to be creating more usable storage.
Day 5- All of the walls and ceiling in the bathroom were painted using the highest quality Kelly-Moore paints. The walls were painted in Kelly-Moore San Francisco Fog. And the ceilings were painting to match the existing color.
Days 6, 7 & 8 – The tile artisans were on site to install tile the shower tile. Arizona Tile Pietra Ialia black 12″ x 24″ porcelain tiles were installed on the shower walls and Bedrosians Fatima Cream Hemisphere mosaic pebble tiles was used as an accent. The shower floor was tiled with the same tile used for the accent, Bedrosians Fatima Cream Hemisphere mosaic pebble tiles.
Days 9 & 10 – The flooring team was on site to install the new flooring. Arizona Tile Savannah Dust 8″ x 40″ porcelain tile was installed throughout the bathroom.
Day 11 – The countertop installation team arrived to install the Kohler Archer undermount sink in white and the Arizona Tile Lyskamm quartz countertop with a mitered edge. The same quartz countertop was used to create a 6″ backsplash.
Days 12 & 13 – The painters began preparing and priming the vanity cabinets. Using a high-grade, oil-based primer, every inch of the bathroom vanity cabinets were caulked, sanded and primed. This is the first (and perhaps most critical) step of creating a durable paint finish. The painters then applied two coats of Kelly-Moore Dura-poxy paint in San Francisco Fog to the thoroughly sanded and primed vanity cabinets. This same priming and painting process was used on the doors and drawers, which are painted off-site in a climate-controlled paint booth for the highest possible quality.
Day 14 – The transformation hit the homestretch with the installation of the mirrors, light fixtures, and accessories. The final day of the project also included an array of “touch-up” items: all outlets and switches were replaced, the shower door was installed and the entire project was cleaned, top-to-bottom.
