Sandros original quote was precise and detailed, and that in itself was reassuring: the final invoice contained no surprises. Due to circumstances beyond his control, Sandro was unable to do the job himself, as he'd planned, but he guaranteed the team he brought in would do an equally fabulous job (pun intended!). He did oversee the work, checking in regularly with us and the team, stopping by to do quality control, and following up on any concerns that arose. I tend to be an anxious perfectionist, and am pleased that they were all patient and understanding.
The scope of work entailed gutting the entire bathroom, which included removing a mammoth, impractical bathtub that took up more than half the room, a double vanity, and a marble tile floor, replacing the tub with a level floor shower, with tile floor and glass and tile walls, and the vanity with a pedestal sink. Our goal was to improve functionality, to reduce the potential for accidents and clutter in our choice of minimalist fixtures, and to make it an easy room to clean. Because the room is large now much larger than before! we wanted to add natural wood furniture pieces for storage, and to reduce the clinical bathroom look. The tile installation was a considerable feat, as it involved two walls, a sloped ceiling, and a skylight well and not a straight surface or even angle anywhere! Raphael the tiler is a master at his craft: he managed to straighten walls and angles with mortar and ingenuity, and the result is beautiful. Andrew did much of the finicky work and made sure that the fixtures and accessories were mounted precisely, and that the finishing touches were elegantly coordinated or contrasted, as needed. His precise eye for detail was very welcome, and certainly helped in ensuring that the custom glass enclosure for the shower was cut accurately! Interior designer Jo walked us through our design and helped us choose just the right paint colour to tie everything together, and her expertise made our decision making much easier.
Overall, we are extremely happy with the results achieved by Sandros crew under his exacting oversight, and we have a beautiful and functional bathroom to enjoy for years to come. We would recommend DelFabulous Home Improvements unreservedly to anyone planning a renovation!
