Bathroom Remodel Design Planning Simplified!
You are remodeling your bathroom, but you have no idea where to start? And you don’t have room in the budget for full service design? You feel confident choosing materials, but need help with the bathroom remodel layout? We’ve got you covered! We have 2 options for you to choose from.
1) The existing floor plan or as-built, that you would use to get an initial quote from your contractor. Great for same footprint renovations or refreshes where you aren’t changing the layout, also the first step in getting a concept plan.
2) A concept plan where our team handles all the design layout planning for you. We list all the details needed for construction and you source the materials, saving money.
STEP 1: SCAN your space
It all starts with an accurate floor plan! DOWNLOAD the Canvas app, SCAN the room and choose/pay to order the Chief Architect file and once you receive, forward and send to us. Then order the as-built package below. We will build and create the As-Built plan from this scan like the sample below of your existing space. You can then rework your space as you desire, use the as-built for a contractor quote, or hire us to do a CONCEPT plan below.
STEP 2: PLAN – order a Concept Plan
If you want a bathroom remodel design , it needs to be planned! The team will collaborate to understand your bathroom remodel needs and develop a concept plan that is not only functional, but beautiful. This concept plan will be complete with a new floor plan, drawings and elevations created with our design sensibilities and expertise. This is a one-time concept plan only. If you aren’t sure what you want, this may not be the package for you. Minor revisions can be made. No materials are sourced, but this will give the contractor a good working document plan to quote your bathroom remodel with average material costs. This concept package is only applicable for the current bathroom space, if you desire to borrow space from adjacent rooms, or it is a more complex remodel, we will need to evaluate and discuss the complexity from structural to electrical and plumbing. Once you have ordered the as-built package, let us know you are interested in a concept package and we will confirm details.
STEP 3: BUILD – Select your materials and finalize with contractor
This step is the most important to getting a detailed budget. You will select all materials and document them (ideally in a spreadsheet) for your contractor to quote, order and install. Purchase our Remodel Design Planner if you need guidance through this process.
Marrying the plan with the budget is key. An initial number from a contractor is only a starting point. Until all elements and designs are finalized, they will have no way of being able to quote you accurately. Contractors can do a great job of quoting averages for a beginning budget based on their experience, but until all elements are chosen, they won’t be able to give you an accurate quote. Things like tile layout and design, edge details, material costs and/or placement details can all add to labor costs.
If you are really unsure what you want to accomplish, you may want to schedule an initial 30 minute consult to walk through your project and we would love to help! These packages are designed for those who are fairly savvy with the remodeling process, don’t want or need customization, and are comfortable with low-touch guidance from us. Our full-service design is geared toward those who need custom designs, professional guidance, and regular access to our team. You can read our FAQs here.
