Silestone Life Series

We completed another counter top project in Long Beach, CA in the beautiful community of Bixby Knolls. This modern bathroom was designed by a local designer who utilized beautiful bright green counters to go with a custom tile design in the shower. We used Silestones Life Series color "Green Fun".  The unique shape was customized by the designer and gives the bathroom a bright open feel with a truly modern design.

New Long Beach Project.

We completed another renovation in the beautiful condominium complex Bixby Riviera, located in the Bixby Hill area of Long Beach, CA. This particular client did not want a complete kitchen and bath remodel, they wanted to upgrade their existing cabinets and flooring to give the home a fresh updated look. Here are a few pictures of the existing kitchen.

In the kitchen we removed the existing linoleum floor and installed new 12x12 porcelain tile on a straight pattern. We continued the porcelain tile into the entry area and the downstairs guest bathroom. We removed the existing florescent lights in kitchen, installed 6 recessed can lights, and repaired all drywall in the light well.  We demolished the existing tile counter tops and were able to save the existing tile backsplash in order to help the client stay within their budget. The client decided to go with Cambria, color "Darlington" for the counter tops. Cambria is a quartz surface made in the USA that is nonporous and nonabsorbent resisting stains such as coffee, tea and wine.

We provided and installed new faucets and angel stops in the kitchen, guest bathroom and master bathroom. In the bathroom the client went with Kohler Devonshire fixtures in the Oil Rubbed bronze finish. In the kitchen the client went with a Kohler Pull Down faucet in a Polished Chrome finish. We also provided and installed a new InSinkErator Invite Single Handle Hot Water dispenser in a chrome finish.
