The Design Process
What’s Needed to Undergo Bathroom Remodeling?
The first thing that you need before you remodel your bathroom is a plan. This can either be a plan that you have made by yourself or a plan that we created for you. From there, we can see if the plan is achievable and if permits need to be pulled. Pulling permits will depend on where you live, the type of kitchen, and the scale of the job.
It is also important to have a budget. You should have the funds in place to be able to pay for the work, but you should also be flexible with the budget. If unforeseen problems are uncovered, you should be able to pay for those too. And, don’t be afraid to pay for quality. That is only going to save you money in the long run.
The final thing to think about is time. If this is a second bathroom, then you will still have one that you can use. If this is your only bathroom, then you need to make some contingency plans. The bathroom may be inaccessible for a couple of weeks, so take that into account before starting the remodeling.

What Happens During a Bathroom Remodel?
Once the plans and permits are in place, the remodeling can begin. The very first step is demolition. There can be a lot to rip out of a bathroom, but we will take care of that and the disposal of the materials.
This is where we can run into problems. With so much water being used for years, there is always a chance that some has leaked. If there is water damage in the walls, floor, or ceiling, then that has to be addressed. That can eat up more money, but it is essential to ensure the safety of your home.
From here, water and waste lines can be moved, depending on the job. Once that is done, fixtures, cabinets, and countertops can be installed. A tub surround will be put in, floors replaced, tiling is done, fans and lights put in place, and all other finishing touches.

How Much Does It Cost To Remodel A Bathroom?
Bathroom remodeling will cost, on average, around $10,000. Of course, the size of the bathroom will matter as will the type of job. If you have a large bathroom and are planning on changing the floor plan, then that is going to increase the cost.
When it comes to each individual item, there is a wide range of costs. For example, a regular tub surround can cost a few hundred dollars, but a fiberglass one can run into the thousands. Quality is always recommended but there is a lot of compromises to be made here.
The fixtures will take up a chunk of the budget, the toilet, bathtub, shower, and sink. You can also spend a lot on vanity and countertops. If you are moving water and waste lines, then expect to pay a plumber. And, don’t forget about the smaller fixtures, like bathroom fans and lighting.
The floor and walls also need to be able to handle moisture, so the finishes will cost more than in other rooms. We can help you to budget for this from the start.
