The Indoor Outdoor Guy Renovations offers both design and construction services for bathrooms in lowermainland, Richmond and Vancouver. Bathroom renovations vancouvar can be on of the more straight forward renovations, however, because of the many different styles for fixtures, counter tops, and tiles bathroom renovations tend to involve a great many decisions as compared to other renovations of a simlar dollar value. Then design choices with bathrooms are further compounded because of the small areas which they typically occupy. Bathroom and kitchen renovations renovations tend to fall into one of two categories: the straightforward update or design/build project.
The Bathroom Update
This is the most economical renovation as the toilet, sink and bathtub or shower, or kitchen sink and appliances generally stay in the same locations even though they are replaced with new versions. However, this renovation still results in a completely new bathroom because the client can choose new fixtures and finishes for every aspect of the bathroom. This type of renovation is more economical because no plumbing or electrical changes in the walls, ceilings or floors need to be made. The permitting process for this type of bathroom is very simple.
The Design/Build Project
This approach is required when you will be changing the layout of the bathroom substantially, such as moving the toilet from one side of the bathroom to the other, adding a free standing tub or taking space away from a closet or adjacent room to make a master bathroom bigger. When it comes to bathrooms these renovations typically involve more than 3 fixtures. As opposed to a regular bathroom which generally has a sink, toilet and tub/shower combination, these bathrooms generally have a separate shower and either a deck mounted tub or a free standing tub. However, this is not always the rule as some of our design/build bathrooms have had the tub removed and replaced it with a large walk-in shower. When renovating a bathroom in Richmond or Vancouver, this approach involves two steps. In the design phase of this approach, our design team meets with the client to design all aspects of the bathroom. Our design team works with the client to select all the bathroom fixtures, countertops, vanities, faucets, tile finishes and paint colors. As a result of this process a complete set of plans for the bathroom is drawn up.
These plans are used not only for the permit process but also to serve as a guide to the carpenters, electricians and tile setters in the construction of the bathroom. The second phase of this approach involves the construction of the bathroom.
