Tips to Get the Most from Your Bathroom Remodeling

Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

Although bathrooms are not the centerpieces of most homes, they do receive a great deal of use every day. Modernizing a bathroom with a remodel can brighten up your daily routines and add a sparkle to your home without requiring a disruptive upgrade on a kitchen or living room. If you are thinking of doing extensive remodeling work on your home, the bathroom is an excellent place to start.

We have some advice on how to make the most of your bathroom remodeling in Beverly Hills. Call Advanced Builders & Contractors today to discuss what you want to achieve with your remodeling project. We can arrange for an appointment to discuss your options and offer you a free initial estimate. You can trust to our decades of award-winning design and construction work.

How to Get the Most from Your Bathroom Remodel

  • Hire a contractor who handles both design and construction: One of the great red-tape hassles of remodeling and new construction is dealing with multiple contractors. Poor communication between a designer, an engineer, and a builder can mean delays and unexpected (and unwelcome) results. Look for a contractor who places all the important services for a remodeling job—particularly design and construction—under one roof. You will save time and money and have a greater chance of getting the results you want.
  • Plan on plumbing replacement: During a bathroom remodel, the pipes of the plumbing will be exposed. There’s no better time to replace outdated and worn plumbing. This is a particularly good idea if you are having remodeling done for an older home, which could have galvanized steel pipes that are starting to corrode.
  • Add new cabinets: One solution to a bathroom that seems too crowded is to install new, spacious cabinets to remove the clutter from sink surfaces and window ledges. If you already have cabinets, you can enhance the look of a bathroom with a new coat of paint … but putting in new ones will do so much more, and you can position them in ways that will free up space.
  • Enhance your sink: There is an enormous amount of variety available in modern bathroom sinks. Instead of remaining with a standard top-mount or under-mount sink design, you can change your bathroom’s look with a pedestal sink, wall-mounted sink, vessel sink, or other options that can add more floor space or increase style.

When you hire Advanced Builders & Contractors for your bathroom remodel, you’ll have a company that houses design, construction, and engineering under one roof, a more cost-effective way to end up with the bathroom you want. We will help you explore all your options so you will get the most from your bathroom remodeling in Beverly Hills, CA.

3 Things to Plan for When Remodeling Your Kitchen

Monday, March 3rd, 2014

Undertaking a kitchen remodel can help enhance your home life in many ways. Often, the kitchen is a major spot of socializing and gathering for families and becomes as much a core of the house as a living room. With the right redesign or expansion, you can make your kitchen the ideal place to knit together your family in a pleasant environment—and make your kitchen more convenient and functional at the same time.

Here are a few things to plan for when you remodel your kitchen. Among the many remodeling contractors in Beverly Hills, CA from which to choose, look to Advanced Builders & Contractors for a company that can take care of all stages of the remodel and streamline the process to save you time and help you toward the new kitchen you want.

Take an active role in designing

One of the key things you should look for in a remodeling contractor is one that wants to work closely with you during the design phase so you can devise the appearance you want for your new kitchen. With the right architects working to guide you, you will be able to make most of the major decisions to direct the project.

Expanding your kitchen space

A kitchen remodel can go much farther than redesigning and rebuilding the existing space. If you find that your kitchen feels inadequate to your needs—something that often happens when your family begins to grown—or you simply find the kitchen feels too cramped, you can plan a kitchen addition as part of your remodel. You can add more storage space, room for extra appliances… or even a second kitchen! Make sure you have a remodeling contractor equipped and experienced enough to undertake this extensive work.

Putting in new cabinets

Sometimes when remodeling a kitchen, homeowners focus more on larger construction issues such as major appliances, flooring material, and countertops and leave the cabinets “as is.” But new cabinetry can make the perfect final touch on a kitchen, and also improve storage space and convenience. Find a contractor who offers a selection of cabinets in different materials and a variety of finishes so you can pick the ideal new look for your kitchen.

When you come to Advanced Builders & Contractors for your kitchen remodeling, you are putting the job in the hands of a company with 25 years of experience and some of the finest engineers, draftsmen, and architects on staff. Let us combine all the various jobs of different Beverly Hills, CA remodeling contractors and put them under one roof to make your kitchen remodeling go smoothly and even enjoyably.
