Steam Showers Inc: What is the bathroom trend that people ask you for the most?
Niko: Heated floors. [People want] more comfort in bathroom. There are bathrooms [in which] we incorporate a steam shower. And more and more people want to have the luxury of large spaces, tiled floors and just the experience of being pampered as if they’re in a hotel.
Steam Showers Inc: How many of your clients would you say ask for steam showers?
Niko: Well, at this point right now, I’d roughly say 20 percent.
Steam Showers Inc: What do you think specifically sets Finecraft apart from other companies?
Niko: Our slogan is “Because details matter most,” and we don’t take that lightly. We have a very keen eye on detailed work, and I think when everything’s said and done, that’s really what matters. When you’re sitting there, in your family room with your family, and you’re looking at the crown molding, and you’re perusing the new space that was created by your contractor. After you’re enjoying the general space, you start looking at the details; if those details are not nice, and they’re not put together correctly, you’ll start seeing them; and that comfort will sort of die away. We don’t like it if that happens and work to prevent that. We want the person to sit there, and look at the details, and think, “This area was really done with care, and we can really see it [by putting a] magnifying glass to it, and see that it was done really well from the get go.” Sitting there in the family room they can see that they’re very comfortable, and they can see that they’re sitting in a quality space, not just one that was put together, “Copy, paste, and here’s your room.” No, we want to create a home for people and make them feel comfortable, and it’s really those details that make them feel comfortable. That’s what we believe.
