The Benefits of a Bathroom Remodel
When preparing for a bathroom remodel, thorough planning, budgeting, and careful selection of a qualified contractor is essential to ensure the desired outcome and success of the remodel. With a comprehensive plan and an experienced crew, a well-executed bathroom remodel can offer many benefits:
Enhanced Aesthetics: By choosing the design and materials that suit your personal style and preferences, you can create a bathroom that feels like a retreat.
Accessibility and Aging in Place: By installing grab bars, walk-in showers, and and other safety features, bathrooms can be made accessible for aging adults and those with disabilities to provide ease of use.
Increased Home Value: When making a purchasing decision, potential buyers will often consider the condition and style of the bathrooms. Therefore, a modern and well-designed bathroom can greatly increase the overall value of you home.
Better Organization: More storage space can aid in keeping the bathroom items organized, out of sight, and the area clutter-free.
Increased Comfort and Convenience: Luxury features such as heated floors and larger tubs and showers can make your bathroom a more comfortable and enjoyable space.
What Does a Bathroom Remodel Entail?
The complexity of a bathroom remodel is based on a number of factors. Those factors, of course, will determine the cost and the amount of time required to complete the project. Extensive remodels can include structural changes, such as layout alterations that involve moving walls or adding windows, adjustments to plumbing and electrical systems, and repairing or replacing the subfloor or framing. Less ambitious remodels can still include changes that make a big impact such as new cabinetry, tile, and countertops. Let’s talk more about how we make that happen…
Bathroom Countertop Replacement
A major component to a bathroom remodel is replacing the bathroom countertop. We specialize in fabricating various types of stone and work with several Phoenix area stone suppliers such as MSI, Aracruz RE, and Boulder Image Premium Quartz to ensure the highest quality quartz, granite, and quartzite in a wide variety of patterns, colors, and thicknesses. During the selection process, you will have the opportunity to view stone slabs offered through our suppliers and experience the look and feel of each piece. You will also find knowledgable staff onsite to answer any questions you may have about their extensive selection.
Bathroom Countertop Installation with Backsplash
Purchasing a stone backsplash that extends from the countertop is a great way to create a seamless, cohesive design. The uninterrupted flow from the countertop material to the backsplash creates a wow factor that even potential home buyers will appreciate. Stone backsplashes that are continuous with the countertop are also very functional with little-to-no maintenance. With no grout lines or transitions between the countertop and backsplash, there are fewer areas for dirt, debris, or moisture to accumulate, which makes cleaning very straightforward. We specialize in providing stone backsplashes that are fabricated at the time of your countertop. Our design team will help you with creating a unique, personalized look that includes backsplash thickness, edge profile, and pattern placement. Backsplashes that are separate from the countertop will need to be installed after the countertop is installed.
Bathroom Countertop Installation Process
Our bathroom countertop installation process begins with your free in-home estimate. During our visit, our design team will talk to you about your project, provide samples and recommendations, and take necessary measurements. Once we have discussed the details of your project, you will then have the opportunity to visit one of our stone suppliers to view stone pieces up close and to get a real feel for how the stone slab will look in your space. Once the stone is selected, a comprehensive estimate outlining your project is provided. Upon your approval, the stone is ordered, sent to fabrication, and then installed. This can take 2-3 weeks from the date of your written approval. All plumbing involved, including disconnect, reconnect, or even replacement, is the homeowner’s responsibility. On the day of installation, we will remove and haul away the old countertop and install the new countertop. On average, a typical bathroom countertop installation can take anywhere from a few hours to a day or two. Several factors, including the size and complexity of your bathroom and the type of material chosen, can determine the amount of time it takes for the actual install.
Bathroom Cabinet Replacement
Installing new cabinets in a bathroom is a great way to update and brighten up the space. Because today’s cabinets come in such a wide range of materials, styles, and finishes, one can create virtually any design—modern, rustic, traditional, or custom. Improved storage, organization, and overall functionality are some of the benefits to installing new cabinets in a bathroom. New cabinets will also be easier to clean and be more durable.
Bathroom Cabinet Installation Process
The process to replace bathroom cabinets begins with your free in-home estimate. During our visit, we will talk to you about your project, provide samples and recommendations, and take necessary measurements. The planning process is an important one as it is crucial to get the layout correct from the beginning and solidify color and style selections. Once selections have been made, the cabinets are ordered. The homeowner will be responsible for preparing the area for the day of installation. This includes clearing the area of any and all items, disconnecting plumbing, and presenting a generally clean area. On the day of installation, the area is prepped for the new cabinets. This includes removing and hauling away the old countertops and cabinets. The new cabinets are then installed as well as any trim and moldings. Finally, we adjust all of the doors and verify the cabinets are level and ready for countertop measurements. On average, cabinet installation can take approximately two days once the cabinets are on site.
