Bathroom Updates That Enhance Luxury and Functionality

The needs and functionality of a home can evolve as seasons of life change. If, chosen wisely, a home can grow with us, but sometimes we need a little help from a professional.

A tub shower combination in a downstairs bathroom is extremely practical with a house full of young children who need to be thrown into the tub for their nightly bath. It becomes less so when the kids grow older and the nest empties. At that life stage a walk-in shower may become attractive to add a little luxury to your space as well offering the benefits of an easier in and out.

During the pandemic, Aiken residents, Diane and Bill found themselves ready for a major bathroom overhaul. They turned to Bill Phillips at Countersync because they had a positive experience with him on a previous project and because they were absolutely certain they wanted to use Corian® for their shower and vanities. Corian® is a solid surface material, that is very durable, nearly seamless and extremely easy to maintain. They selected Corian® for their kitchen counters over 30 years ago and they still look brand new. Diane said the durability, ease of care, no grout and wide selection of colors made the choice a no-brainer.

The scope of the project was a complete remodel. They replaced the flooring, swapped out a tub shower combination for a large, oversized walk-in shower, and installed new vanities and fixtures.

Bill Phillips teamed with an approved contractor to complete the project. Not wanting to leave any supply issues due to the pandemic to chance, they waited until they had all the materials in stock to commence. The contractor and his crew went in first and did the demo and all the prep work and then Bill and his team installed the shower and vanity countertop.

Diane reports that the workers were fantastic. They were extremely polite, cleaned up after themselves and completed their work expeditiously.  There were no surprises or hidden costs not reflected in the estimate. At Bill and Diane’s request, the Countersync team even used some extra material to craft a customized shelving unit.

Bill and Diane are pleased with the end result and report that it is exactly what they hoped it would be.
