2010 Updates (Bathrooms)

Many of our clients in 2010 chose to remodel their bathrooms.  Recently those clients were generous enough to let us take after pictures of their transformation.  These pictures along with the descriptions below offer an idea of how A&E Construction can assist you in remodeling you bathroom to fit your needs.

Bathroom A:
For this master bathroom remodel, the client wanted the luxury of a fresh, modern look that wouldn’t break the bank. The original tub enclosure was removed and we installed a larger, more modern shower area with bench seat.  Additionally, the symmetry and balance of ornamental vanity mirrors with modern vanity spotlights and decorative glass shelf under mirror provided a fresh look to the space.

Bathroom B:

This bathroom was transformed from a weary outdated bathroom into a timeless, for classic design with the installation of an elegant claw footed tub.  We created more storage space with installation of additional cabinetry while also installing a double sink structure in place of the previous single sink.  Additionally, new carrara marble adds texture and compliment to the rich chocolate glazed vanity cabinetry.  Overall, this transformation met the needs off the client and improved the space as a whole.

Pool House Cabinetry Updates

This week fixtures and finishings were installed in the pool house.  In both the main room and the bathroom Starmark Cabinetry was installed.  These champagne maple cabinets finished with a nickel glaze look to provide storage, as well as house the newly purchased appliances.  Additionally this week, the walls were painted, a Moen shower head in a brushed nickel finish was installed, and the pool outside saw initial framing to the jacuzzi.  Look in the coming weeks for more details about the project.

The Pool House

This week was a busy week at the pool house.  As you can see below the pool has begun to take shape.  The unique shape is sure to provide endless summer fun.  Inside, the shower was tiled using the same tile design as the flooring, and a GE ptac Heating and Cooling Unit was installed.  This will provide the space with a low maintenance temperature control.

Pool House Updates

Our Pennington Pool house is moving along quite swiftly even with the cold weather approaching.  This week we were able to take more outside picture as Beechwood Landscape Architects began to construct the patio within the week.  The patio will be made from Bluestone which will give the area a natural feel with its different shapes and tones.  This outdoor space along with the pool which will be installed in coming weeks will provide the family with the ultimate in outdoor living.  On the inside of the pool house, the tile was installed.  The Pavaria Earth 12”x12” ceramic tiles from The Tile Shop in Hamilton, NJ features earthy tones, and will be an easy clean when wet feet walk across.

Look out next week for the installation of more fixtures!
