We loved working with Areté! We live in a townhome in Lincoln Park and had 3 bathrooms that needed a lot of work. We decided to fully gut 2 of them and upgrade the sink/vanity in the 3rd. Arete managed the entire process from inspiration, design, demo and construction and the results are exactly what we imagined. We worked with Ivana and Vasi on the designs. They worked with our inspiration and also gently pushed us out of our comfort zone with some of the design elements. We had a real need to add storage and they suggested adding medicine cabinets and floor-to-ceiling built-ins to really maximize the small spaces. Marina was our project coordinator and she kept everything on schedule and informed us along the way. She frequently stopped by while the work was being done to check in on progress and run things by us. Sasa was our lead contractor and he was meticulous and settled for nothing but perfect on the construction. He was also around a lot and was very kind to our 4-year-old. Ziggy built our vanity cabinets and we are obsessed! They are high quality and beautiful. Overall, we got exactly what we wanted at the price we agreed to upfront and couldn’t be happier! As a bonus, we let Areté know that we had a baby on the way and they committed to being done in time for baby’s arrival. Baby came 3 weeks early and we were so relieved that the project was already 99% complete and just needed finishing touches. The Areté team can’t be beat and we’ll definitely use them again for future projects!
