Changing Surfaces
A No Nonsense Approach

We have all heard the saying, “we’ve only scratched the surface.”  In most cases, that means there is more trouble that awaits underneath.  But in this case, it was only the surface that needed to be changed.

Back in the 80’s and early 90’s, the definition of “Solid Surfaces” was pretty much anything but tile.  The material of choice was Cultured Marble – a man-made material usually composed of marble dust, bauxite, acrylic or polyester resins and pigments. It is most frequently used for seamless countertop installations.  The only problem is that it no longer seems to stand the test of time or the test of style.  In this bathroom make over, we were faced with the challenge of keeping the existing travertine floors and glazed walls.  The countertops, tub and shower however just had to go.

The results were quite nice!
