Hall Bathrooms Deserve Respect, Too!

Customer Issues

After spending more time at home, the recently retired homeowners recognized that their nearly 30-year-old 1990s style bathroom needed an update and upgrade.

Bel Air Construction Solutions

Working in the exact footprint of the previous bath and using a complementary balance of contemporary materials, fixtures and finishes the Bel Air Construction team created a refreshed bath of natural tones and textures.

The refreshed bath features:

  • A new Kohler Villager 14” high, cast-iron soaking tub allows for easy access.
  • Horizontally installed large format Emser Reserva Alto 12” x 24” porcelain tiles above the tub rise to ceiling height to enhance the size of the room. A band of complementary Emser Lucente glass tiles accent the shower and the integrated niche. A corner shelf completes the design.
  • Matching large format Emser Reserva Alto 12” x 24” porcelain tiles are installed on the floor.
  • All tile is installed over Schluter substrates, an integrated family of products in which the individual components collectively form a bonded, watertight assembly which eliminates the risk of failures due to water and vapor penetration.
  • The use of high performance Spectralock grout with built-in Microban®antimicrobial product protection fights the growth of mold and mildew on grout surface.
  • A new Silestone Pietra vanity top was installed on the existing custom-built vanity.
  • A new American Standard Champion tall-height water conserving toilet was installed.
  • Thinking to the future, properly anchored grab bars were installed.
  • Kohler Devonshire chrome fixtures and accessories are used throughout the room.
  • New lighting and mirrors complete the design.
