Bathroom Repair and Refresh

This elegant home loft located in the Mill District in downtown Minneapolis was built in the early 2000’s and the owners wanted a more updated feel. There were lots of tan and travertine tile as well as maple cabinets. All three of the bathrooms needed a remodel including the master bath. The bathroom on the second floor had been damaged accidentally, which was affecting their home environment.

Skäpar and their partners provided solutions to address each challenge they came across. By working with the owner and insurance company to mobilize and fix this urgent issue quickly, Skäpar was then able to jump in to refresh all of the bathrooms’ style.

While working through the second-floor bathroom repairs, Skäpar encountered opportunities to update the other two baths. Though limited by size and structure, Skäpar was able to give a more open design.

In the end, the master bathroom saw the greatest transformation, with the installation of a fully mitered tub surround, an accent wall in large format tile, high-quality German plumbing fixtures, and an entire glass enclosure.

Client Testimonial

We have used Skäpar for three bathroom renovations. All three turned out beautifully. In addition, Nate’s communication with us throughout our renovations was excellent. He is accessible, responsive and a consummate professional. The work that Skäpar does is top notch and his tile guy is very talented. We couldn’t recommend Skäpar more highly.
