ILva Legni Exotica from D&B Tile Featured in Custom Bathroom Remodel
When David and Lynne Maniaci decided to renovate their builder-grade bathroom in their Pembroke Pines Home, she knew it would be a work of art. Her husband David is a retired plumbing contractor from New York. There is nothing left standing from the original bathroom.
According to David, “We went to Doug’s Tubs and More in Sunrise to select fixtures. They recommended Tile and Marble Designs by Anthony and D&B Tile Distributors. It was a perfect match. The tile selection and pricing was excellent and Anthony did a great job on the installation. We met with Sandi Bavota who spent the day with us going over tile selections. She also recommended Anthony. We picked out the tiles using the vignettes on the floor and considered recommendations from Sandi Bavota at the D&B Tile Sunrise location. She spent much of the day with us going over tile selection, grout and answering all of our questions.
“Anthony showed up about ten days later and installed the tile. Tear out of the old tile was already completed. There was a substantial amount of preparation done by the time he arrived. I’m a retired plumbing contractor from New York. We’ve been in South Florida full time for 10 years. However, we had a condo in Stuart for 25 years, so we’re familiar with the design capabilities of tile here in South Florida. Nothing is as practical as tile in this area.”
“There was extensive structural work done before the tile was installed. We squared the closet and knocked out a wall. I moved the toilet and redirected the plumbing for the shower. The tub was in a completely different location. All electrical fixtures were high hats. They were torn out and replaced with three chandeliers and a new exhaust fan. It’s been quite a project. We’re aware of the variances of qualifications on the contractors so you have to be very selective and check out their references. Everything went well and we are very pleased with the tile and the installation.”
The llva Legni Exotica Line brings an exotic woodlook influence to the space. It is available in five colors with four distinct designs. Bati Orient item VEMI11 mosaic was used in the shower.
