Turn your bathroom into a modern oasis


Dreammaker Kitchen and Bath can help you update your drab, outdated bathroom

Larry and Cheryl Birdwell purchased their home in 1997. They found their dream home and knew they would be there for the rest of their lives, there was one catch. Their 1963 home had not updated the master bathroom since the home had been built.

"The bathroom was depressing. It had carpet, and vinyl tile. It just was not a place I wanted to spend my time," explains Cheryl Birdwell. They opted to call Dreammaker Kitchen and Bath due to all of the great reviews they had previously heard regarding the company. The Birdwell's wanted to remake the bathroom to provide for an open airy feeling. After discussing their ideas with Steve Betts and his designer, and a home visit they started construction.

''At the beginning of the process, Steve handed us a schedule of who was going to be in our home, when they would be here, and for how long. I was very impressed they kept to the schedule, cleaned up after themselves and ensured we were informed as to what was being done that day," Cheryl describes the process of renovating with Dreammaker. She noted that she was pleasantly surprised that the schedule was strictly adhered to, and what could have been a nightmare of a renovation was as painless as possible. Not to mention she loves the result.

Dreammaker Kitchen and Bath textured the wall with a custom texture, installed can lights in the ceiling and redid the whole bathroom. This included taking out a wall it's not just boring and white anymore but, open airy and light. The Birdwell's opted for darker cabinets and a light granite countertop. The original granite they selected was out of stock; Steve came out to discuss this and provided multiple alternatives to ensure they were satisfied. For their shower, they were given three options: no wall, a pony wall or a full wall for the end of the shower. Steve, again, sat down and discussed the benefits and drawbacks of each.

Ultimately, Cheryl and Larry opted for a pony wall (a wall that goes about halfway up) and could not be happier with the result. Cheryl offers a tip to anyone looking to renovate their home; "I could not be happier with my bathroom, I even enjoy cleaning it these days. I recommend that not only should everyone call Dreammaker for their remodel but that if you go in with an idea or a direction, they are just the right people to help guide you to a final solution." Larry and Cheryl just love showing off their bathroom to all ofo their houseguests, the moment they walk in the door, they insist they see their newly updated modern bathroom.
