FROM NEW TILE FLOORS, TO A RESTORED BATHROOM AND A FULLY REMODELED KITCHEN – GONZALEZ & SONS DID IT ALL.
When it comes to tile flooring design, our company has over 25 years of experience installing custom designs. A well thought through flooring design can take a home’s decor to the next level.
This is a remodel we completed in east Mesa where we designed and installed more than just the home’s floor.
By combining our flooring and tile skills we redesigned an entire condo including bathrooms, showers, counter-tops, backsplashes and accent borders.
This condominium makeover only came to be because of a previous job we completed as a sub-contractor; we were previously hired by a building contractor to complete a flooring project as a sub-contractor. As the project came to an end, the owner of the property approached us, inquiring if we would be able to assist in the design and remodel of another condo he owned. We gladly accepted the challenge. After all, what were we gonna do, say no; I think not. It is always nice to know a customer appreciates your vision, design and work.
My experience as a business owner has shown me that referrals and repeat customers are the lifeline of any business. Without it, we wouldn’t be in business today. Our previous customers kept us in business during the difficult recession years of 2008 – 2011.
The owner of the East Mesa Condos in Mesa off of 71st and Main, hired us to assist with the design and layout of the remodeling for one of his units. He requested that we put together recommendations to give his unit an entirely new modern look.
We started out by walking the property together and discussing ideas for the floor, kitchen, dining room and bathroom. By the end, we had decided on a few design ideas and I drafted a few raw sketches. The sketches I drew for him on-site consisted of ideas for, tile design patterns and an overall layout of how the floor, showers and kitchen would look.
Based on the drawings the owner was happy to let us take the lead in bringing our designs to life throughout his condo.
KITCHEN TILE DESIGN
Ceramic tile was used to complete the floors throughout the condo. The ceramic tile flooring set the tone for the accents we worked in on the shower and the wall borders. The newly installed cabinets contrast with the tile to feature the cherry oak wood.
We used the space in the center of the cabinets to work in a mirror that would include a custom accent border. The border we designed was developed with a Travertine stone. The basket-weave tile pattern was used to introduce a touch of texture to the nook.
GUEST BATH TILE DESIGN
Both of the condo’s bathrooms had bathtubs that needed to be remove and pluming rerouted. Once that was complete we began building out the new shower walls and installing the tile. The ceramic tile used on the floors doubled as the walls for the shower. Even the bench and soap shelves were cut from the same ceramic tile. The tile designs on the ceiling and wall were essential to the character of the newly remodeled bathroom. We used mosaic tiles on the ceiling to create texture framed in by the same ceramic tiles used throughout.
MASTER BATH TILE DESIGN
Featuring a framed picture design to produce an elegant and bold atmosphere. The design features a break in the ceramic tile to show off a cigar liner border topped by a chair rail. Travertine stock stone is used to match the tones of the river rock used on the ceiling and floor.
The design was an original concept which was developed through a sketch session with the owner during the initial walkthrough. While the sketch provided details as to the materials to be used, it didn’t show the exact design in all its detail. This allowed us to have some freedom in the design and installation process as the owner provided us with an “okay” to take the lead on the installation.
The bathroom sink features a bold border that solidifies the elegance of the one-of-kind shower.
