The Bathroom Remodel | What to Expect

One of the more popular requests we receive here at LakeWood Homes & Remodeling are bathroom remodels.  Most starter and outdated homes come with your standard oak vanities, built in tub/shower combos and a standard vanity and mirror.  Bathrooms can be a great selling point when it comes to selling your home.  But most importantly a stunning bathroom is a great way to swoon your guests in your home.

So how much does a typical bathroom remodel run?  Well that is a great question.  On average our customers can expect to receive a bid anywhere from $8,000 for the most basic upgrades to upwards of $20,000+ for the extensive bathroom re-haul.    

We recently took on a bathroom overhaul.  It was a smaller outdated master bath that was dying for some much needed TLC.  Small bathrooms can be a bit of a design challenge but with the right layout and design you can turn some of the smallest bathrooms into one of your favorite rooms in your home.

The clients had some specific requests: upgrade from a single vanity to a double, move the toilet to a more private location, upgrade the shower and tub and switch out the larger window to a smaller private one.  And so our team set to work.

Our team met with our clients and had an initial walk-through of what they can expect.  We asked the client to put together a collage of what they are looking for.  After we had all of the appropriate details our design team set to work.  We put together a few custom blueprints and talked through options with the clients.  Once we were able to get a finalized floor plan we provided a sample 3D image based on the design options our clients provided in their initial collage.  This gives our clients a chance to offer any feedback or final thoughts before the project begins.

The clients were looking for something bright and airy with bright white cabinets and a glass shower.  The previous window was a bit too revealing and the clients wanted a bit more privacy but still wanted the natural light.  So we shrank down the window and replaced with an egress window.

This bathroom was an amazing transformation from outdated to bright and modern.  Do you have a design idea in mind or a project you need help with?  Our team can help take your old drabby room and turn it into your new favorite room in the house.  Contact our team today.
