Our 2nd bathCRATE project is off to a great start and includes both bathrooms in this 1961 Modesto home.

Why the Homeowner Chose bathCRATE

When this young couple bought their home, they knew they were in for some remodel adventures.

They’ve since completed quite a few upgrades, but the bathrooms? Oh, those bathrooms were in need of some TLC.  After 52 years of dedicated service, the tile countertops, original vanities, and dated finishes were ready for a change, and bathCRATE is eager to help.

Scroll down to learn how these bathrooms looked before we started, and be sure to check back in a few weeks.  We promise: they’ll be unrecognizable!
