Bathroom, Kitchen, Family Room & Living Room Remodels
Lyme ~ 2013
Paul & Christine Egri

The overall performance of this contracting company has been simple outstanding.

We have used A Beautiful Co. to remodel our Kitchen, Family Room & Living Room over the past 3 years. Currently, we are contracting them to remodel our Master & Guest Bathrooms.

The renovations were literally "down to the framing studs" and included sheetrock, brazilian cherry and oak flooring, electrical, lighting, cabinetry, carpentry (including crown molding), plumbing, granite counter and vanity tops, tile flooring & back-splash, shower & bath tub tiling and painting.

In all cases, within all trade disciplines, we were and are more than satisfied.

This family-run organization is extremely ethical and wants to insure that the customer is happy during the process and with the final product. If something needs to be addressed, it is done immediately. I personally like the lack of constant change-orders for every little detail not addressed within the initial scope of work. they work with their clients on a personal level and will do everything possible to deliver a product that they and the owner is proud of.

In particular, Alex Marku, who owns A Beautiful Co., is very responsive, has an unmatched capacity for detail, can accurately visualize our desires, offers constructive ideas and simply produces outstanding workmanship at delivery. Over the years, he has become our friend and we will continue to use him and his team in the years to come.

Bathroom Remodel ~ East Lyme ~ 2013
Jay & Janice Ginsberg

Thank you for the wonderful job you have done remodeling our master bathroom. The attention to detail from planning the design through all the steps involved in completing the project was exceptional.

You were able to design the space to fit our needs, including a larger shower, better storage and we now have an elegant, updated master bath that we can enjoy using every day. We were impressed with the high quality of the cabinets and the craftsmanship of your workers who installed the plumbing, electrical, cabinets, granite counter top and new tile. All your workers did an excellent job and were professional and courteous.

It was a pleasure to work with A Beautiful and we would definitely come to you in the future if we have any further remodeling needs.

New Addition ~ Old Lyme ~ 2013
Tony & Nina Vallombroso

We would like to thank Alex and the entire crew of A Beautiful for the recent addition to our home. From the excavation and concrete work thru the framing, finishing and painting, all were experts at what they did. Attention to every detail was the most impressive and the name of your company sums it up.

We have interacted with several contractors in the past, some good and some not so good. It was almost immediate that our confidence in you and your company proved to be well founded.

Each and every person who worked on the project was courteous, helpful and went above and beyond what we could have expected. It was a comfortable experience.

One comment by a family member was that the addition looked like it was always there. That said a lot in respect to your architect and builders who made it all happen.

Thank you again for all you and your workers did to make this a very pleasant experience.

Kitchen Remodel ~ Niantic ~ 2013
Chad and Susanne Robertson

We have had the pleasure of working Alex Marku and A Beautiful Co. over the past five years. He has remodeled our sunroom, bathroom, basement, and just recently our kitchen. Alex and his crew were always very professional and committed to getting the projects completed as promised. The A Beautiful crew was also very particular in housekeeping each day as well.
Alex expects only perfection and he gets it from those who support him. He has a unique talent for vision of the finished project while being mindful of all aspects such as colors, tiles, molding, cabinets, space, and cost.  It was enjoyable to watch him and my wife design our kitchen well before it started.  

Finally, A Beautiful Co. has various vendors in the area which allowed us to select from the best products in New England.  The custom kitchen cabinet we selected came from Vermont since we could not find any cabinets in the area that even came close to the craftsmanship.  This vendor has an exclusive relationship with Alex, and came to our house to assist.  The counter-top vendor that Alex provided us with gave us an exclusive tour of their supply house with over a thousand different styles from around the world to consider.  Marble, granite, and soapstone – just to name a few.  We were able to pick out the counter-top that day, and Alex took care of the rest.

These professionals displayed an obvious respect for Alex and his craftsmanship each time they met him with a smile. They commented to us such that we were are lucky to be working with Alex and A Beautiful Co.

Bathroom Remodel ~ Waterford ~ 2012
Mr. and Mrs. Richard and Micheley Hodges

A Beautiful and their own guild-like Renaissance artisans created our stunning, aesthetic bathroom measuring a tiny 8 1/2' by 6'. It is the smallest, yet easily the most beautiful room in our house! Each skilled worker exercised their unique contribution to the project. The talented team was creative, polite, neat, and quiet as church mice. It was so exciting to watch them recreate this utilitarian space into a space of aesthetic arrest. What we used to call our "spare bathroom" is now a stunning, modern, practical design!

It is now the showcase in our home. Guests, family, friends and clients are all invited to step inside to experience it. It is simply not every day that people get the chance to be impressed by the unusual skills of a whole team of artisans! They expect to find such expression in notable public buildings, NOT in a commoner's bathroom.

Our world needs visual artisans to elevate our common spaces. Beauty has its own power. After these talented workers finish their various tasks and leave the site, the full impact of quality materials, skilled work, serious focus and attention to detail permanently stamp each space with indelible impact.

Kitchen Remodel ~ Noank ~ 2012
Julia E. Doering

I have had a very surprising, timely, and completely satisfying adventure with your company. Your attention to every detail from the estimate to the completion of the project in less time than promised was amazing.

It is a wonderful kitchen with beautiful made-to-order cabinets and all those odd requests that make it unique and personal. I think that your professional workers may have thought that I was nuts but they never let it on and were very neat, on time, innovative and cheerful throughout the job.

I could not be happier and highly recommend A Beautiful for any job.
You are good people who do excellent work.

Kitchen & Dining Room Remodel ~ 2011
Lisa Marcus

I had the most amazing Thanksgiving Day this year - and most of it was thanks to you! For the first time ever, I actually ENJOYED preparing for this awesome holiday and I was able to put all three leaves in my dining room table. It was truly a beautiful thing! To have everyone sitting at one table for such an important holiday was heart warming.

The preparations for the day were so easy as I effortlessly moved throughout my kitchen and dinning room. The girls and I had ample room to dress the turkey - and the pan actually fit in the oven! The new layout was so more enjoyable. It was so nice to have the huge island, sink and cooktop to work with. Even the cleanup was easier. And my family was so impressed with how BEAUTIFUL the kitchen turned out! The comments never stopped.

I am enjoying every moment I spend in this glorious new kitchen and eating area. It is beautiful, functional, comfortable, and exactly what I dreamed it would be. I am truly IN LOVE with this part of my home. And it is all thanks to you. Your efforts were tireless, your attitude superb, and your work ethic superior. I could not be happier with results and I will never let anyone else work in or around my home. Thank you for everything!

Fred, Madeline and Max Whitlock

Thank all of you for the beautiful job you have done remodeling our home. Your professionalism coupled with unwavering patience with both me and my wife shows in all of the work you have done. Not only do we appreciate how wonderful everything looks, but still can't get over the fact that you beat all of the prices we had quoted from several other local companies.

You have made our project an enjoyable experience instead of the complicated hassle it could have been. My family and I will always be indebted to you and look forward to continuing both a business and personal relationship in the years to come.
