Bathrooms

Does your bathroom need a makeover? Maybe just a new vanity? Or, maybe it's time to realize your dream of a Pinterest® bathroom! When it comes to bathrooms, we do it all. 

Our bathroom projects fall into one of two broad categories: bathroom makeovers (cosmetic updates) and full bathroom remodels

Bathroom Makeover

This is far and away our most common bathroom project. It could be a light update, or refreshing and replacing just about everything except for a shower and/or bathtub. 

Full Bathroom Remodel

Here is where we find most potential clients get tripped-up with their budget expectations. A full bathroom remodel is a major remodeling project and in a nutshell will cost as much as, or even more than, a kitchen remodel.

 

The best way to determine where your project falls, or where you want it to fall, is to review our general guidelines below.

What to expect...

Of all the remodel projects we do, people seem to have the least idea of what to expect budget-wise when it comes to bathrooms. Perhaps it's the small space that's deceptive. Here is guidance based on our experience:

Upscale Update

 

This is an en suite master bathroom in Bedford, NH. It was the original, typical early 2000s "upscale" builder bathroom, complete with corner tub and vinyl checkerboard floor! 

We gave this bathroom a high-end update on a budget. Click on "View Project" for details and more photos.

Powerhouse Powder Room

This is one of our favorite projects! The whimsy and elegance is undeniable. This is a small powder room right off the kitchen. It was boring and bland, utilitarian at best, and our clients wanted to make a statement. This shows how you can take a small space and make it something special.

New Love

This is a full bath we updated in Nashua, NH. At our first meeting, our client said she literally hated going into her bathroom. She said just being in there made her angry. It had been remodeled quite badly as a DIY project by a previous homeowner. In fact, the bulk of time and cost on this project was correcting everything that was wrong, from plumbing and electric to trim and paint. 

Aside from correcting problems, our directive was: the useless pedestal sink had to go. Our client had zero usable space to even put a toothbrush on. 

Our client reported to us after finishing the project that she loved her new bathroom and it had actually become her new "happy place".

Basic Update

This full guest bath in Bedford, NH got a complete overhaul. This shows the difference a "basic update" can make with minimal modifications. New flooring, new vanity, new medicine cabinet, new lighting, and of course the wallpaper was removed and walls & ceiling painted.

Beach House Oasis

This project was a major update of both bathrooms in a beach community condo. This is a second home for our clients who retreat here for weekends and Summertime. They enjoy having their grown children come with their families. It has always been a special place for them, but they had grown tired of the dated look and wanted a luxurious "beach" feel. The condos had been built in the 1980s, and this one had not been updated since then. We worked with what they wanted to keep and what they wanted changed. The follow-up feedback we received is that their entire family loves the resort-like feel the new bathrooms give the home.

Little Gem

This small powder room is right off the kitchen and was part of a first floor remodel and new kitchen project. 

This tiny space experienced a major change. We removed the tile floor and installed hardwood to match the rest of the flooring. Replaced all the trim with new white trim, including upgraded baseboards. Repaired drywall, painted, and installed a new navy blue vanity with gold handles and a gold faucet
