Meet Amy Fournier

Meet Amy Fournier, bathroom sales consultant and art quilter, FW Webb Bath Showroom, Dover NH.

She brings you…
four years of bath design experience at FW Webb on top of five years in the kitchen and bath design field. “I always knew I wanted to do something in the design industry, so I got a double degree in interior design and small business, which felt like a good way to start.” She was drawn to Webb in part because it’s an employee owned company and says “it’s has been fabulous working here.”

She specializes…
in residential bath design in both remodeling and new construction.

She’ll help you…
by asking a series of questions when you first meet, such as the scope of your job, your budget, your esthetics and your timeframe. “I want to get into as much detail as we can to determine what you are trying to accomplish, so I can help you make the best possible choices for your needs.”

She believes…
in finding out what you think is the most important element for your new bathroom. “I always ask people where they want to start, because that tells me what’s important to them, what’s on the forefront of their mind. It could be function, esthetics or how a shower is set up. I build the bathroom around what’s important to them.”

She’ll guide you…

through how a bathroom is designed, and advise you on product selections. “We have a beautiful showroom with wonderful displays. There are infinite possibilities and we use our expertise to make the best design choices for you. We are here to help make the right selections.”

She understands…
it can be hard to visualize the end results of your bathroom project, so she can help by doing a full design, a drawing or sketch, and by looking at photos. You can bring in tiles and other samples, and she’ll help coordinate everything.

She excels…
in designing baths that will make it easy for people to stay in their homes for the long term.  “A lot of our clients are retired and are taking out big tubs and putting in showers. We discuss safety concerns such as no-threshold showers, seats in showers, easy access to hand showers while seated, and placement of grab bars.”

She goes beyond…
product selection by working very closely with contractors, builders and plumbers to be sure there is good communication. With out it, for example, a plumber might install a rain head shower at standard height for a client who is 6’2.  Unfortunately that would leave only two inches between the shower and the top of the user’s head!

She appreciates…
the challenges of small baths. “One thing I hear quite often is ‘I have the world’s smallest bathroom.’ I love bringing esthetics and function to them.  At the same time, large bathrooms also have their challenges.”

She loves…

all of DXV. “I went to the New York showroom and it was fabulous.”  She especially likes the Golden Era Movement inspired by the reductive approach to design in the first decades of the 20th Century.  A favorite is the Wyatt Collection fire clay console sink with elegant metal legs and a glass shelf . So is the shapely Wyatt toilet. “The lines are very classic and really speak to me.”
