4 Steps to a Successful Bathroom Remodel
When it comes time for a bathroom addition or a refresh, it’s essential to understand the steps of the process before you get started. Our team at DeLeers Construction will help walk you through each step and provide ease and clarity along the way. Here’s what you can expect when you set out to complete the best bathroom remodel possible!
1. Set a Budget and Timeline for Your Bathroom Remodel
Before you bring in a professional team for your bathroom remodel, it’s helpful to take some time to consider your expectations around budget and timeline. Having these guidelines predetermined can help you narrow down your options later on when it comes time to select materials, styles, and the overall scope of your remodel.
This is also the ideal stage for making lifestyle plans for during your remodel. Consider what bathroom you’ll use instead while yours is being remodeled and think through any other lifestyle changes, you’ll need to make while the remodel takes place.
While the overall timing will depend on the size of your bathroom and whether you’re remodeling or completing new bathroom construction, many bathroom remodel projects take about a month to complete.
2. Determine the Look and Feel of Your Bathroom Update
The look and feel you hope to achieve from your remodel will likely be directly tied to your reason for remodeling your bathroom in the first place. Perhaps you moved into an older home and are simply hoping to lend a more updated look to one of the most-used rooms in the home.
Maybe you’d like to incorporate luxury features into your bathroom, install more water-efficient toilets, or adopt a full-on spa feel. For many, a lack of storage space can make for a constant uphill battle. Regardless of your goals, DeLeers Construction can help bring your best bathroom remodel dreams to life.
At this stage, you’ll form a better idea of the scope of your bathroom remodel. In some cases, a simple shower remodel or installing new fixtures throughout the room can be enough to renew the space. In others, a full-on bathroom addition is necessary, and the project can involve in-depth materials sourcing and even knocking down walls.
3. Choose Your Materials
Once you’ve laid out your goals for your bathroom remodel, it’s time to consult with your team of professionals. As you share your overall vision, your team will bring their industry knowledge and experience to the table in order to help you determine the best materials and technology to achieve your goals.
Common bathroom remodel materials include:
Each material comes with its own set of considerations when it comes to sustainability, longevity, and cost. Whether you’re going for a modern look or a spa-like experience, your team will help you dive into the pros and cons of different materials and features.
Above all, the team of professionals at DeLeers Construction will know how to merge your style aspirations with the functional needs of your household, from the amount of storage to the number of sinks. A bathroom that matches your lifestyle can elevate your daily life to add in a relaxing and luxurious experience.
You’ll need to select materials for aspects of the room such as:
- Wall accents
- Shower interior
The selection of your materials will lead seamlessly into refining the overall design of your bathroom remodel.
4. Refine Your Bathroom Design
Whether you’re working through a bathroom addition to add a powder room to your home or whether you’re designing a luxurious bathroom update, refining each detail of your design will be the last step before your team of professionals begins their work!
In many bathroom remodel projects, one of the most important aspects is the shower remodel or the bathtub remodel. In a master bathroom, you may want both! For some, the elegance and instant luxury of a standalone bathtub remodel is enough to elevate the entire space and provide opportunities for relaxing experiences right at home.
For others, a shower remodel is the way to go because they prefer a quick and functional solution rather than a bath. The right team will help connect you with the latest technology and your ideal style for your shower remodel design.
At this stage, you’ll also select details such as the finishes for your faucets, the style of your shelving and mirrors, and the location and type of hook or bar for hanging towels. Your team at DeLeers will be by your side to guide you through each step of the way to ensure you end up with a functional and beautiful bathroom.
