“It is with pleasure that we highly recommend Karen Warner as an extremely capable bathroom designer.

She recently assisted us with an “aging-in-place” remodeling/renovation of a very tiny powder room into a three-piece European style “wet room.”  This challenging and successful transformation includes a wall-mounted toilet, a lever-controlled, wall-mounted shower which can be hand-held as well, and a long, narrow sink with ADA approved faucet — all in one floor-to-ceiling tiled room. The three Toto fixtures mentioned received on-target placements in such a small space.

Initially, Karen took sufficient time to listen to our ease-of-use and simplicity concerns as a retired couple in our late 60s and early 70s in order to incorporate them fully into the final design.

Her thoughtful and clever addition of a marble storage shelf over the sink, utilizing the top of the necessary north wall bump-out for pipes, is an outstanding highlight of her design. In addition, we much appreciate the inclusion of maximum storage via a tall and narrow mirrored medicine cabinet, a “hotel style” train rack towel shelf area, and a combination grab bar and cosmetic shelf in the shower area. And, the curved shower curtain rod provides more room in the shower area.

The three trips to choose tile, plumbing, and lighting materials became less stressful and overwhelming because of her presence, clear and confident guidance, and broad knowledge of products available in stores and the Internet.

Karen’s skill in communicating by e-mail, in person, and by phone with both our general contractor and us was invaluable before, during, and after construction.  She compiled a looseleaf book that remained on site during the whole construction period which contained descriptions of materials and products to be used/installed as well as copies of final plans. Many members of the construction team remarked on how helpful that reference was when a question arose.

Lastly, Karen was always punctual or called us when she was unavoidably running late, maintained a calm demeanor throughout the entire period, and went that extra mile when a construction problem surfaced.

We would not hesitate to recommend Karen Warner to our associates and friends as a top-notch bath designer.”

“Karen was very professional and worked closely with myself and all the contractors from start to finish. I had an odd space to open up to make a bathroom/spa, from 2 smaller rooms into one large room. She creatively came up with a solution to make a beautiful large master bath. She helped me pick the best materials for my budget, and was always available and responsive throughout the whole process. She even would come to my house and let in the builders if I was unavailable!

We had some unforeseen challenges, one being a tub that could not be installed within code. She handled this challenge and resolved it satisfactorily even when the manufacturer would not take it back. I would definitely recommend Karen and will likely call her in the future too.”
