There are a lot of factors to consider before starting a bathroom remodel. Staying within budget will be the most important, but knowing what the value of return on the remodel is just as important. According to Realtor Magazine's 2015 Cost vs. Value Report, remodeling a bathroom can yield a 70% return on investment. (Source:

Bathroom remodels are often more than meets the eye. When discussing a remodel, the following will need to be considered: plumbing, tile, countertops, cabinets, fixtures, walls, windows, lighting, and amenities.

Plumbing: It's more cost-effective to keep plumbing infrastructure where it is, so keeping the toilet, tub, and faucets in place will save you substantially down the line. It is possible to move these, but for reasons of cost and time it's not always the best choice for all homeowners. For a bathroom remodel, it's in the best interest of the homeowner to upgrade aesthetically as opposed to completely reshaping the room. 

Walls and Windows: Homeowners don't have to be constrained by their home's current layout. We can move walls, remove unwanted windows, and completely transform your bathroom to the style you desire.

Stone and Tile: There are a lot of options now in the world of tile and stone. Porcelain tiles are durable, slip resistant, and come in an array of colors, sizes and design options. Natural stone is the epitome of modern luxury and can greatly enhance the aesthetics of your bathroom.

Cabinets and Countertops: As skilled carpenters, we can customize and build your countertops to your specifications with materials of your choice. We can incorporate your storage needs into the design of your vanity.

Pro Tip: If you're short on space for a his & her's double sink vanity, consider upgrading to one larger sink to make the shared space more accessible for both parties.

Lighting: Lighting can change the mood of your bathroom. You can tone it down for a relaxing feel with sconces and brighten up dim areas with under-cabinet lighting. Enhance your vanity area with the perfect vanity lighting to help you get ready and start your day right.

Fixtures: Bronze, Silver, or Chrome? Picking your choice of metal fixtures will help guide the rest of your color scheme. Stainless steel is universally desired but isn't for everyone. Don't be afraid to choose the fixtures you would like to see everyday.

Amenities: Bring the spa home. If it's within your budget, consider adding a steam shower and radiant floors. We create custom walk-in showers for our customers.
