Our bathrooms projects
1- Rosemont : A real “room” bathroom
Refined comfort without excess
We suggested to the owners to preserve the keep the numerous windows in the room to highlight the bath-tub. The shower and sink are more discreet while remaining functional and well integrated into the whole.
Transformation from duplex to cottage requires good planning to estimate the costs. Our design-build team is ideal to advise you in this matter.
Simple and user-friendly choices
The design of this bathroom is very simple. It is a bare bathroom, without any curtains or excessive accessories. The horizontal fenestration brings a great brightness while protecting the intimacy of the occupants. The linear wooden counter adds a warm touch to this zen concept. The horizontal mirror also visually enlarges the space and increasing the brightness of the area.
We carried out this work as part of a more complete renovation project including an extension where the bathroom was located.
3- Rosemont : An airy Italian bathroom
This row house located in the Rosemont neighborhood, had been designed with a corner bathtub that unnecessarily used a lot of space and a narrow shower in which it was difficult to move. Since the family included two teenage girls and that the bathroom was used extensively, the owners found the tub and shower in need of significant fixes in terms of both design and access and maintenance.
In 2018, the couple contacted our team to completely rethink the layout and the design for a more open space and a contemporary appearance. The change is spectacular.
An Italian concept
Quickly, our designer proposed an Italian design where the bathtub shares a common space with the shower, which optimizes the available space while creating a very contemporary design. Our customers were delighted with this idea.
However, a problem related to the structure of the floor caused a little difficulty. The case was submitted to our technical department who found a solution to the problem without having to modify the chosen design.
The works were completed in just 6 weeks and the layout now meets the owners’ objectives with its easy-access freestanding bath, its large ceramic shower, two sinks and a more airy space.
It was a quick and efficient achievement both for the completion of the work and for the follow-up of message and e-mail returns. Our team strives to respond adequately to our clients’ questions because we know that the key to a good communication is a good understanding.

4- Mercier-Hochelaga : A decluttered bathroom
The owners of this condo felt uncomfortable in their bathroom. The cramped space and dark hues made this windowless room even darker. The couple wished to give their bathroom a new look and open up the space. However, there was no question of expanding the bathroom or moving the sanitaries.
The choice of products and accessories was therefore decisive to create a more open, brighter and pleasant space. Our designer’s concept with a glass and white ceramic partition that matches the bathtub and the countertop first made it possible to free up the space by making it brighter. Then, the use of a circular mirror and dynamic wallpaper helped make the space more fluid and alive. The bathroom now meets the needs of the homeowners who now feel comfortable there.
Our works schedule was very tight in order to limit the inconveniences related to the works, after all, it was the main bathroom. Our team realized the whole project in just one month, without any unforeseen events or delays, all while respecting the established budget.
The quality of our works is our main concern and we always maintain good communication with our customers and a prompt response to their messages. The courtesy of our employees is also greatly appreciated as it helps maintain a nice atmosphere during the work.
5- Ahuntsic : A personalized bathroom
Although rather recent and in good condition, the bathroom in this condo building did not meet the taste of our client who wanted his bathroom to reflect his personality more. He liked the Georgian style very much and had even ordered his faucets before to make sure he had the right design with its gold finish.
The main challenge for the designer was to respect the style while adding a contemporary touch. For our technical team, the main challenge was to find a way to integrate a tub and a shower in the limited space available.
We also quickly noticed that pieces were missing for the installation of the imported customer supplied faucets and the delays in receiving these non-standard pieces were unreasonable. Our technical team was able to find a solution with other parts to do all the work in just 5 weeks.
An original success
The gold faucets were the initial element of the design. Our designer therefore chose matching hardware. The use of Muraluxe decorative wall panels in the shower really sets this bathroom apart. The use of a sliding door integrated into the partition also made the use of the bathroom more convenient.
The owner now feels at home because his bathroom is to his liking. It was the reason for the works and our team is proud of its accomplished mission.
6- Boucherville : Saying goodbye to the 1980s podium bath
A more functional space
By removing the podium bath we were able to clear enough space for a spacious shower and a bathtub that was both pretty, practical and comfortable.
Our designer knows all types of bathrooms with their advantages and disadvantages. We are here to guide you and to help you make a good investment in your work.

7- Mont-Royal : The WOW ! factor in the bathroom
The challenge: respecting the budget
The owners asked us to renovate the two bathrooms of this cottage. They wanted a complete analysis of their needs, design and of the realization. They were looking for a bathroom concept that was both modern and warm.
A good collaboration between our design and estimation teams made it possible to achieve everything while respecting the fixed budget.
8- Laval : Saying «bye bye» to the acrylic shower
A glass and ceramic shower
Unlike prefabricated acrylic showers, the ceramic shower with glass panels allows you to achieve the desired shape depending on the space available. Its ceramic floor is laid on a membrane that guarantees its waterproofness. It fits aesthetically in the bathroom and often becomes the center of attention.
The bathroom now has a totally different look that matches the image of its owner’s desire.
9- Montréal : A chic little bathroom for the masters bedroom
A bathroom adjacent to the bedroom
This bathroom being adjacent to the master bedroom we propose to give it a little more character despite its small size. We replaced the acrylic shower with a ceramic and glass shower.
To visually increase the floor space, we suspended the vanity. The transparency of the shower and the hanging vanity reduces the confining effect of small spaces.
We do not work miracles, but we always try to give you an optimal solution according to your needs and your budget.

10- Boucherville : The old-fashioned charm of a yesteryear bathroom – Domus Finalist
The charm of yesterday with the comfort of today
The vast majority of the materials used in this project were existing materials that have been restored. The research and restoration work was important, but the result is in line with our expectations and those of our clients.
The result was very rewarding for both our design team and our workers. For us, it is important to be proud of the quality of our work.
11- Petite Patrie : Beauty and efficiency in simplicity
A standard but warm design
In this residence, we had to renovate two bathrooms. We kept the standard linear layout by finishing the bathroom with a ceramic shower with a fixed tempered glass panel. This arrangement avoids any shower curtain. A large horizontal mirror gives the impression of enlarging this restricted space.
This bathroom is both simple and effective, showing that it is possible to obtain a luxurious appearance with a limited budget.
12- Montréal : The discreet charm of a 1930s condo – Domus Finalist
A remarkable old charm
Our designer realized that we had to take advantage of the staircase to give this room a character of yesteryear. We turned the “problem” into “opportunity”. It must be said that this architectural style was perfectly suited to the rest of this residence. The design of a room must take into account the entire housing so that it is well integrated.
It is advantageous for the owners to consult us as soon as they purchase their property for us to guide them in the logical steps of renovation.
