Bathroom Design and Remodeling

Bathroom Design

Escape to your own spa experience

Many homeowners choose to remodel their bathrooms at some point. This can be a big project, but it’s often worth it in terms of both function and resale value. When planning a bathroom remodel, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, decide what you want to change. This may include the layout, the fixtures, or both. Second, consider your budget. Bathroom remodels can be expensive, so it’s important to know how much you can afford to spend. Finally, think about your timeline. Depending on the scope of the project, a bathroom remodel can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months to complete. With careful planning and execution, a bathroom remodel can be a great way to improve.

One of the first things to consider is what type of tub or shower you want. If you have a small bathroom, a corner tub might be the best option. For a larger bathroom, you might want a freestanding bathtub. Once you’ve decided on the type of tub or shower, you need to choose the perfect sink. If you have a small bathroom, a pedestal sink might be your best bet. But if you have a larger bathroom, you might want to consider a double sink vanity.

What are the first things that come to mind when you are thinking about bathroom design? For a lot of homeowners, the basic foundation thought is likely to be the color scheme before going into individual details. For a professional designer, the first thing that will come to mind is the layout of the bathroom.

Bathroom Remodel

Create my bathroom oasis

Remodeling a bathroom is not an easy feat. It is also an expensive undertaking that requires months of planning. There are a lot of things to consider such as selecting the cabinetry, fixtures, surface materials, electrical, plumbing, bath accessories… It can be daunting trying to make sure everything comes together. That is why a bathroom remodels should never be a DIY project unless you’re an experienced designer. When planning the bathroom design, it is important to factor in your needs and those that will be using it.

Residential Renovations

Project Management For Your Remodeling Project

If you intend on saving costs for a renovation project, knowing how to manage the project is imperative. It should be noted that managing the project on your own will require extensive planning and you will be required to set some time to oversee the project. This could be challenging if you have a busy life with so little time to do anything else. It is recommended that you’re working with a project manager if the renovation is to be successful.

The most important role that a project manager has to be managing the budget. There are approximates that you’ll be expected to set aside for the whole renovation project. The project manager will look at your drawings to enable us to come up with the appropriate fixtures and finishes. The person is in charge of delivering the project within the stipulated budget and in the right time frame.
