Remodel a Small Bathroom So It Feels Larger—Or Make It Larger!

Monday, April 1st, 2019

bathroom-green-tileOver the past few decades, a major design trend has changed the way residential bathrooms are constructed. Bathrooms were once designed as small spaces that could be easily tucked between the larger rooms in a house. The bathroom contained enough space to fit in a sink, toilet, and shower/tub combo, with only a small amount of floor space to move between them. Today, bathrooms are larger, more friendly and open spaces, often with double-sinks and larger, luxury showers.

What can you do for a bathroom remodel to create a greater sense of space? Or create actual space? Working with a skilled remodeling contractor will help you find the best methods for enlarging your bathroom.

Shelving Options for Remodeling the Bathroom

Monday, March 18th, 2019

bathroom-lots-of-spaceIn our last post, we discussed one of the biggest trends in kitchen remodeling: open shelving. Shelving and storage are essential for any room remodel, and kitchens require special planning to find the ideal way to create a new storage space.

But storage and shelving are important in bathrooms as well. With much less space available, shelving in a bathroom can be tricky. How can you maximize storage in a bathroom remodel while also creating a pleasant appearance and convenience for household members?

Some shelving choices don’t fall under remodeling, such as an over-the-toilet ladder or nailing up a hanging basket on the wall. What we’re looking at are the major changes you can make to shelving when you have a contractor do a large-scale bathroom remodel. This is a great opportunity to create something new for the space.

Lighting Ideas for a Bathroom Remodel

Monday, February 18th, 2019

bathroom-brightThe home remodeling project that often gets the most attention when it comes to a lighting redesign is the kitchen. This makes sense: a kitchen is a place where complex tasks for cooking are done, and it also serves as a social hub for families as well as during gatherings and parties.

Is lighting as important for a bathroom remodel? It is! Bathrooms usually only contain one person at a time (or two in the case of larger couple bathrooms), but that doesn’t mean they don’t need effective and attractive lighting. When you are thinking about working with a contractor in Beverly Hills, CA to do an extensive bathroom remodel, look into innovative ways for improved lighting. Our designers can provide you with many ideas to lighten up the room.

Monday, October 1st, 2018

showerhead-dripping-close-upWhen you choose to remodel your bathroom, the main reason might be so you can change out an old tub and shower combination with a stylish walk-in shower.
