Portland, Oregon, has been called one of the greenest cities in America. There, many groups, citizens, and private companies rally for considerations like energy-efficient appliances, recycled and repurposed materials, and water conservation on a daily basis, at work and in the home. As more people prioritize green lifestyles and houses, the number of companies providing both creative and luxurious home improvement projects and remodeling services continues to rise.
The average person uses between 80 and 100 gallons of water each day, with the vast majority dedicated to flushing toilets and taking showers and baths. Many general contractors in Portland are producing new bathrooms that are modern and stylish, while also taking into consideration the impact on the natural environment and the local community.
If you’re remodeling a bathroom, or just starting to consider some new bathroom remodeling ideas, then this is the place to begin. Below is a list of residential contractors specializing and/or excelling in high-quality bathroom remodels in Portland, Oregon. They were selected for their experienced and credentialed staffs, the quality of their bathroom remodels, and the recognitions their work has received through the media and professional organizations.

Pacific Northwest Cabinetry, a family-run business, offers full-scale, design-build kitchen and bath remodeling services with a specialization in customized cabinetry. The company was founded by President Peter Schraner, who spent years learning about the building industry by observing and working alongside his father, a Swiss immigrant and master cabinet maker. Peter was inspired to start his own customer-focused business at the age of 26, when he witnessed unethical business practices while working as a designer and salesperson at a cabinet shop. Today, his team of in house master cabinet makers, carpenters, and certified National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) kitchen designers have earned nine consecutive National Service Awards. The company is a licensed general contracting firm featuring an in-house full custom cabinetry shop, is a member of the NKBA, and works on houses in areas throughout metropolitan Portland, including Irvington, Grant Park, Portland, Mt. Tabor, Woodstock, Eastmoreland, West Linn, Wilsonville, Charbonneau, Beaverton, Bethany, Murray Hill, and Lake Oswego.
The company has worked on several impressive bathroom projects in Portland, such as the renovation in Bonny Slope. After gaining a thorough understanding of the client’s lifestyle and bathroom ideas, Pacific Northwest Cabinetry opened up the space and added a curbless shower, framed by a floor-to-ceiling glass wall, a heated tile floor, and brand-new windows. They installed tall, vertical lighting fixtures and rich-hued bathroom countertops, and they replaced a pink and white color scheme with a tasteful, neutral color palette suited to relaxation.
