Just because bathrooms are one of life’s necessities doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enjoy using them. Spending time in an outdated, cramped, and poorly lit room with little to no storage is not an ideal way to start and end your day. As one of the most used rooms in your house, a well-planned and properly designed bathroom can greatly improve your daily routine and add exceptional value to your home.
At Sutton Construction Inc., we understand that your bathroom is unique to you. We are a fully licensed and insured remodeling company that has been renovating bathrooms in South East Michigan since 1991. Utilizing a design / build strategy and industry leading innovations in presentation, communication, service, and overall quality, Sutton Construction Inc. can transform your bathroom into a functional and enjoyable space that looks beautiful and meets your needs and budget.
Our goal at Sutton Construction Inc. is to identify your wants and needs and then work with you to create your dream bathroom. We ask a lot of questions and then we listen, listen, listen. Were there design problems with the old layout? Is more light wanted or needed? Are there any must haves like a deluxe shower, a soaking tub, or a double vanity? Is the goal to stay streamlined and simple or are you thinking about creating a spa-like experience? What storage considerations need to be addressed?
Why all this detail? It’s simple. You only get one opportunity to design your bathroom. We want to make sure your bathroom ends up being everything you want and more. Everything we do is planned, detailed, and organized so we can maximize our ability to get you the bathroom you desire while making your remodeling project a very smooth and enjoyable experience for you and your family.
In the photo shown above, the client wanted to enlarge and transform their cramped, cold, dark, and outdated master bathroom into a more contemporary style. Their wish list consisted of adding a large shower bench, a shower niche, a euro style glass shower door, better lighting, and more storage.
We worked with the client to help create a design that allowed them to get the changes they desired. We widened the bathroom by moving the vanity / toilet wall just 14” into the walk-in closet that existed behind the wall. By making several closet storage modifications and adding new and improved lighting, we eliminated any functional lose to the new closet space while greatly transforming the bathroom with a profound and enlarged new look.
Given the existing shower was sandwiched between an exterior wall and the second story stairs, our options for obtaining additional shower space were limited. In the pictures that follow,
you can see how we relocated the shower fixtures by adding a new 2×4 wall in front of the existing exterior wall to protect the water pipes from the cold winter temperatures. We then used the newly acquired space to enlarge the shower and provide the client with the custom shower bench they desired. We added a heater to the fan / light combo to provide additional warmth and take the chill off those cold winter mornings. Lastly, the subtle, yet impactful, detail of offsetting the shower valve will keep cold water off our client when they turn on the shower.
As you can see in the two photos below,
utilizing a bump out vanity sink base with two flanker bed of drawers provides for a very stunning first appearance when you enter the room while providing the client’s must have storage space. Wall sconces and a fan and shower light really brighten up this once gloomy space. The clean color palette of crisp whites, glass doors, and contemporary final touches give the bathroom a spacious and welcoming feel while the pebble stones on the shower floor provide some balance and character. This easy to maintain master bath feels open and refreshing.
Maybe you have an older home with a less than functional bathroom? Maybe you love the rest of your house, but the bathroom is not all you want it to be? Maybe you need more space, better lighting, or simply decided you’d like to upgrade your existing bathroom to match your unique style and personality.
Whether you’re considering remodeling a powder room, guest bathroom, or master bathroom, contact Sutton Construction Inc. to schedule a consultation. We can help you take your existing bathroom and turn it into a more inviting, efficient, and refreshing space in your home while also showing you why so many of our clients trust us with their bathroom remodeling renovations.
We hired Sutton Construction Inc. to rehab two 50’s era bathrooms. The work was perfect and we loved the finished product. Both bathrooms had to be completely gutted and reworked. Work included electric, plumbing and finishing work. Sewer connections had to be rerouted and was all done seamlessly. Work was done to budget and in the time allowed for the work.
I gladly recommend Rick Sutton for your remodeling needs.

Rick Sutton, of Sutton Construction Inc., is amazing. He is patient, considerate, detail oriented, forward thinking, and timely. He remodeled all three of our bathrooms in 2016, and did a fantastic job.
Update October, 2018 – Rick continues to rock! Two years after our bathrooms were remodeled, he came out to address a concern that had developed with the master bathroom vent fan. He made a slight adjustment, which took care of it free of charge!!! True dedication to a job well done!

Rick Sutton was recommended to us by a neighbor for whom he had done numerous projects. Our project was replacement of a shower control. We considered trying to do it ourselves, but were warned against it by a hardware store employee because our house is 60 years old and still had its original plumbing. Rick gave us an estimate and a time frame to finish the job and emailed several recommendations for style and price that fit within our budget. He showed up on time, got to work and finished a little later than anticipated as there was a surprise or two behind the shower walls. We now have a shower that works better than before and looks wonderful! On the whole, working with Rick was a great experience. We found him to be punctual, courteous, very knowledgeable and willing to take time to explain how the project would be completed. It was a small job, but Rick did not treat it as small. We highly recommend Rick Sutton as someone you can trust to do a perfect job!

I have worked with Rick Sutton of Sutton Construction Inc for 10+ years now on a variety of projects to further beautify our home. Our most recent project that Sutton Construction Inc completed for us was our upstairs main bathroom and we are very pleased with the outcome! We went with a “Beach” theme and it turned out great after gutting the bathroom completely. Our floor even had to be leveled since it was going down hill towards the tub… many things were installed with great precision, even my idea for our two bathroom mirrors was brought to life and they were custom made by Rick. He has many ideas and resources to come up with a design that suits you, but he will also work with you if you already have ideas of your own! I highly recommend Rick and his crew. They will create a beautiful space with their quality craftsmanship, all while being easy to work with due to their friendly personalities.

We have had the pleasure of working with Rick for many years. He has remodeled two bathrooms, our family room and kitchen flooring, our family room fireplace and has repaired drywall in several areas. I interviewed several contractors before deciding to hire Sutton Construction Inc.
We are so pleased we hired Rick, as he is honest, hard-working and does excellent work. Unlike many contractors, he shows up on time and always cleans up at the end of the day. Although the quote for work may not be the lowest-priced, it’s the old adage “you get what you pay for” … when it comes to your home it’s not worth going by price alone.
We have referred Rick to many of our neighbors and everyone has been very pleased with his work. I highly recommend Sutton Construction Inc for any home remodeling and in particular, any kitchen and bathroom renovations.

Only one word comes to mind when I think of Rick Sutton/Sutton Construction Inc……”EXCELLENT”.
Rick came to me highly recommended by my good neighbor whose judgment I completely trusted. I asked Rick to do the remodeling of my 3 bathrooms and a half bath a few years ago……. and in every way he was excellent. He did excellent work……meticulous, observant, detailed and with fine craftsmanship skills. He was also an excellent communicator…….he kept me informed and updated frequently on the progress of his work/cost. The project was done in timely manner and I was very satisfied with the result.
He was also excellent with “after care” services, I may add. One of the shower guard strips which hung from the bottom of Euro Glass shower door started to get loose after a few years of use……I called Rick, he immediately replied with the instruction to call the manufacturer to send me a new strip, and he right away arranged for the shower people to come over and install it in my bathroom. I can’t praise him highly enough.
I can’t say enough good things about Sutton Construction Inc. They are meticulous. Every facet of the project is well thought out and explained in detail before you even get started. They are prompt. They arrive on time and complete the project on schedule. They are neat and tidy. They were very respectful of our home and living space during the project. It was never messy and when they completed the project, they left it cleaner then when it began. They helped us to stay within our budget. They offered suggestions on ways we could save a few bucks here and there. I know this review sounds too good to be true, but have them out for a quote and you’ll see. We are going to have them back for a second bathroom and other future projects.

We did two smaller projects relating to bathrooms and kitchens, one in the rerouting of plumbing in order to install a free standing vanity sink in a bathroom and the other in installing a new gas line extension into the kitchen in order to change from an electric range to a gas range. In both cases, we were extremely pleased with the result. The work was meticulously completed, and great care was taken to ensure that the finished product would be just what we wanted. Prior to any work, a thorough discussion of the project both raised and answered all the major questions, both about what was possible and what was desirable. The work was finished punctually, and the clean-up was immaculate. We couldn’t be happier!
Rick Sutton of Sutton Construction Inc. is the best person and company I have ever hired to fix or remodel anything in my home. He originally remodeled my bathroom and since has done several plumbing and electrical projects on my home. Rick is also a fabulous finish carpenter. He has worked on the inside and outside of my house and has always done a perfect job. His price is always very reasonable and I trust him implicitly. I would recommend Rick and Sutton Construction Inc to any homeowner who needs help.
Sutton Construction Inc. is the best! My wife and I hired them for a major bathroom remodel that even included moving some walls. Rick’s honesty, professionalism, and expertise are just at such a higher level than anyone else we’ve ever worked with. We’ve recommended Sutton Construction Inc. to family and friends and they all had great things to say, too. Extraordinary customer service and quality of workmanship!
We had a leak in our upstairs bathroom and had no idea what to do or who to call. My friend recommended her husband since he has been in the construction business for almost 30 years and bathrooms are one of his specialties. We called Rick to come out and investigate the damage. We advised him that were also working with our insurance company. The insurance adjustor was very particular about what he wanted to see when he came out, and Rick expertly prepared the damage assessment for him. The adjustor was very impressed, stating that Rick’s detailed assessment included information that he normally has to bring his personal tools to access the damage. Based on our adjustor’s response to Rick’s estimate, we decided to hire Sutton Construction Inc. We were confident in our decision as Sutton Construction Inc’s quote came back perfectly in line with the adjustor’s estimate. Having been through a disaster of a home improvement in my youth, this was a very trying time for me. Rick was patient with my nervousness about undertaking a major construction project. He listened our concerns, thoroughly answered all of our questions, and assured us that our bathroom project would be perfect for us.
Rick was very involved in assisting us with the design process. We were shown various options for the tile, grout, and finishes along with the pros and cons of each. He made several visits to our home to walk through the plan and our design choices. He provided us with a detailed cost break down including a schedule of all the work to be done and a payment schedule prior to beginning the project. Surprisingly, there were no surprises. Rick and his crew were very professional. We expected it to be fairly uncomfortable having extra people in our home all day, every day, for a month. It was not. Everyone on Rick’s crew was amazing, patient with us as we asked questions, checked in frequently for updates, and patient with our children who had tons of questions about how things worked.
Rick even took our dog outside if it was a day where no one else was home all day. One day, during the course of the project, we had a pipe burst in our garage. Rick and his crew fixed that – making it better than new. While they were fixing the pipe issue, he noticed an issue with our dryer vent system and repaired that as well. We were on vacation for a week during the project and Rick was kind enough to send us text updates and pictures showing the progress while we were gone.
We could not be happier with the completed project. We already had Rick come back out for a minor lighting project and we are thrilled with those results as well.
