Newcastle Master Bathroom is a Kohler Showroom Design Brought to Life

By Mandy | September 11, 2017
Newcastle Master Bathroom with Carrera Tile - 1

This project is a showcase of design, project management, and workmanship brought together by J & M Remodel to meet the client’s goals and schedule, despite problems with the availability of the materials for the project. This Newcastle master bathroom incorporates materials and features that are both top of the line and state of the art, including

  • Schluter Ditra-Heat floor warming system
  • Wedi Shower system
  • Carrera Tile
  • Free standing soaking tub with wand
  • Frameless glass shower surround
  • Sconce Lighting
  • Bullnose tile window encasement
  • Flush inset medicine cabinet
  • Kohler showroom design

Our client described their experience with the J & M Remodel team in their review on the reviews page of our site thusly:

“We redid our master bathroom – tore it down to the studs, knocked down a wall, full tile, glass shower – the works.

Top three things we looked for in a contractor (1) finish on time, (2) communicate regularly and (3) be neat. Having done home renovations (while living in the house) before, these were must haves. J&M nailed all three. They finished their work a week early. They explained the plan for the week at the start of the week and communicated next week’s plan at the end of every week. Finally, they cleaned up after themselves every day.

The only challenge we had was our fault. We used a designer and acquired the materials through their suppliers. We ended up short on tile and had to reorder which took a week. J&M just worked around it. Our major issue was a miscommunication between me and my wife which lead to the counter tops coming in a week late. Totally our issue, no issue with J&M. This leads me to the pointer. If you haven’t ordered your materials yet, and J&M can get what you want, order through them and they will sync timeline.

Overall, very happy with J & M. We have already slotted our next project with them in December. And will be using them for a kitchen update sometime next year.”

West Seattle Bathroom with Carrara Tile Shower

By Mandy | November 6, 2016
Bathrooms by J&M Remodel, Seattle, WA

This guest bathroom had been recently remodeled, but was in need of a new shower surround (walls) as the existing shower surround had been failing. In addition, the tile work previously done for the shower was not up to par. J & M Remodel removed the old shower, and set a new Wedi shower pan (base) and shower surround. The grey grout that the client selected complements the gorgeous Carrara tiles. The grout and tile combination really makes for an eye-catching design. The wall-mounted vanity and sink complete the look of this modern but warm bathroom.

Guest Bathroom on Capitol Hill

By Mandy | November 6, 2016
Bathrooms by J & M Remodel, Seattle, WA

This small, yet functional guest bathroom matches the farmhouse style of the client’s home. The glass blocking in the shower provides ample natural lighting. The wainscoting and pedestal sink make the room feel larger, with a recessed medicine cabinet for additional storage. We used a urethane based Quartzlock grout to insure minimal maintenance for the grout joints on the natural stone tiles. The hardwood floors tied in to the rest of the home and added a nice contrast to the rest of the bathroom’s aesthetics.

We contacted Justin in November 2011 to bid on our project, remodeling the kitchen and both bathrooms. He came right out the next day, quickly did a thorough review of the project, and responded within a couple of days with a competitive, detailed proposal, which we selected from among five other bids.

A two-man crew, Nate and James, handled most of the work but four other contractors came on the job at different times for extra hands or when a specialist skill was needed. The crew is great to work with; friendly, courteous, considerate, and diligent. They keep a clean job site, removing trash and debris frequently. We liked that the J and M team was small and easy to work with, but also big enough to bring on more people when required.

J and M handled everything in the remodel except for the cabinetry, countertops, painting, and shower doors, which we contracted out to others, an arrangement which saved us a considerable amount on the job. J and M’s work included all the demolition, rough carpentry, plumbing, electrical, tile, and the finish and trim work. They worked really well with the other contractors, coordinating schedules and working out dependencies as needed. They also bought all required materials with a reasonable markup, but allowed us to buy the more costly items to avoid the markup, often using their contractor discounts saving us even more money.

We worked from rough designs, which led to frequent changes, including a few major changes. They were very flexible, handling everything, working with us to get exactly what we wanted. We did find that it was important to write down changes—an email was enough—as some things were dropped when communicated verbally.

Some changes were the result of problems uncovered during the remodel. The crew always communicated things quickly as they came up, and were very creative, usually giving us several options to solve the problem. For example, we got stuck trying to work out how to install an electrical outlet on the kitchen island, and Nate worked out a way to cut down some plug mold to fit perfectly on the island trim. It looks great!

The craftsmanship was generally above average and in some cases, excellent. They will take on anything, but were best with rough construction, woodwork, tile, electrical and plumbing. They had trouble with the floors and some finish details.

The oak floors required sanding, staining and sealing, and they struggled to get a consistent, smooth finish after going well over budget on the sanding. It was partly due to the challenging nature of the floor—uneven, out of level surface and grain variation—and partly limited experience on their part. I want to emphasize that they absorbed most of the cost overrun, and in the end, the floors look good, but this part of the job definitely pushed their limits.

They are also easy to do business with. Their invoices are timely, detailed, and easy to understand. They provide receipts for all purchases, were quick to respond to billing questions, and have been very reasonable in working out any issues that came up.

They started on schedule in mid-January, and finished a bit later than planned, about 10 weeks later—reasonable for the size of the job and the number of changes that we made. We were generally happy with their progress throughout but did have to push at the end to get things wrapped up.

We love all three rooms, they turned out even better than expected, and really make the house beautiful.

Overall, we are very happy with J and M. They are reliable and responsive, and will provide quality contracting work at a reasonable cost, but you do need to spend time working with them on the project to get the best result. We will work with J and M again as well, already scheduling a media room project and potentially a studio/office remodel. That probably says as much as anything about our level of satisfaction.

Sound View Master Bathroom

By Mandy | November 6, 2016
Bathrooms by J & M Remodel, Seattle, WA

Originally, this master bathroom was very dated, yet it had a nice functional footprint. It was important for our clients to have an updated bathroom that also increased their enjoyment of the sweeping views of the Puget Sound. The natural look of Travertine tiles appealed to our clients, and they chose an accent border and paint to complete the look. The jetted soaking tub with an extra-large tub deck provides a nice place to take in the view. The frameless shower door maintains the open feeling of the room, and allows for light throughout. Finally, heated flooring was included throughout the bathroom, including the shower.

J and M rocks! We’re almost finished with our 2nd project with them – guest bath remodel and it’s stunning. Nate did an awesome job and is a pleasure to work with. I’m torn about telling too many people about these guys… we have another bathroom to remodel and I don’t want them to get so busy they can’t fit me in! 🙂 Highly recommend Justin and his team.

Bellevue Guest Bathroom

By Mandy | November 6, 2016
Bathrooms by J & M Remodel, Seattle, WA

This tiny, almost non-functional bathroom was a bit of a challenge. We decided to bring out the partition wall to enlarge the overall square footage as well as to remove an adjacent closet to add to the shower space. Our clients were thrilled with this suggestion, and were excited to have a more functional bathroom. We incorporated marble tile around the window frame. We also used chameleon tile heat registers for a very custom look. The glass tile accent strip in the shower and in the niche tie into the vanity backsplash to complete the look. Finally, a unique double rain shower head provides ultimate relaxation.

04/16/2015 – Carol W. (Angie’s List Review)
Justin met with us to go over our project. One of the challenges was enlarging a tiny shower enclosure. Justin was able to sketch up an idea to move the wall out a foot on two sides. The end result is fantastic. Ehren was our onsite construction specialist and all facets of his work were excellent. He was easy to work with and communication was top-notch. We appreciated his approach to involving us in some of the finish ideas; i.e., did we prefer the tile to run this way or this from a visual point of view? Both Ehren and Justin were 100% committed to making sure we were happy with their work. The highest compliment is to use a contractor again which we plan to work with Justin and Ehren on our next project

Bathroom with Steam Shower in West Seattle

Bathrooms by J & M Remodel, Seattle, WA

We were contacted by a client who needed an additional bathroom in their home. We eliminated some closet space, and as a result, we were able to come up with a design that worked well. This bathroom has an incredible steam shower, and the tool box vanity completes the custom, modern look.

We completely transformed this bathroom from its original 1940’s aesthetics to this modern and functional bath, complete with heated tile flooring, hidden power outlets in the medicine cabinets, and floor to ceiling tile. The chameleon heat register is a great finishing touch.

This bathroom was a very fun project to take on. The intricate tile layout landed perfectly, and the client was thrilled with the end result. The oil-rubbed bronze fixtures were a nice change from the usual.

Maple Valley Master Bathroom Remodel

By Mandy | November 6, 2016
Bathrooms by J & M Remodel, Seattle, WA

This Master Suite remodel turned out remarkably well. The choice of neutral colors really worked well to create a relaxing and welcoming finished product with a soaking tub that cannot be beat. These clients were thrilled with the result, and when asked to provide a reference, their response spoke to their satisfaction:

“Hi Justin,
We’d be happy to be a reference.
The bathrooms turned out even better than we expected.
Thanks again to you and your crew.
