How to Tackle A Bathroom Remodel By Brandon Keller

It is important that homeowners create a budget for their remodeling project.

Are you tired of your outdated master bathroom? Do you dream of a luxurious spa-like retreat right in the comfort of your own home? If so, it may be time to consider a master bathroom remodel.

Remodeling your bathroom can not only enhance the functionality and comfort of your space but also add value to your home. However, embarking on such a project can be overwhelming without proper guidance. That’s where professional contractors can help.

Before diving into the remodeling process, it’s essential to review your needs and wants, then set a realistic budget with your design team and general contractor. Consider factors such as layout, fixtures, tile selections and overall design style. Create a prioritized list of must- haves to guide your decision-making process. Cogwheel Construction recommends working with design professionals such as interior designers or architects to ensure the best possible outcome for your space and budget.

The design phase is crucial for a successful bathroom remodel. Start by creating a to-scale floor plan to determine the optimal layout of fixtures. Explore different design styles and aesthetics to find inspiration, considering factors like traffic flow and space utilization.
Some of the designer elements Cogwheel has been incorporating recently include steam showers, heated tile floors, freestanding tubs, and custom glass enclosures.

Remodeling a master bathroom can be disruptive to your daily routine, so it’s essential to prepare accordingly. Make sure you have access to another bathroom in another part of your home or that you are living elsewhere for the duration of the project.
Communicate regularly with your contractor to address any concerns or requested changes to the scope of work that may arise during the remodeling process. It feels different standing in the space than looking at the floorplans, so changes are normal.

In modern design you need to pay special attention to lighting. Layering lighting and textures take any room up a notch . Note: Lighting is not a singualr element it is a team sport.
