Why Remodel your Bathroom with 3R's Construction in Salem, Oregon?
Excellent question! A Bathroom Remodel by 3R's Construction is an excellent way of breathing new life into your existing home without the hassle of moving. At 3R's Construction and Remodeling we have found one of the most common complaints from Home Owners we hear in the Remodeling business is... "the house is fine, the neighborhood is great, the kids have friends here but the Kitchen or Bathroom is too small or there is not enough room to accomodate our lifestyle." The staff at 3R's Construction and Remodeling is trained and experienced in all aspects of Bathroom design and Bathroom Remodeling. We will dedicate this official 3R's Construction blog/post to help you make good decisions as you plan your Bathroom Remodel.
First things first, before you begin Construction or interviewing contractors, it is important to establish your goals and desires. This mental picture of the end result will be invaluable in the successful completion of your project. Developing the picture of your newly Remodeled Bathroom will often times take longer than the actual Construction phase of the project. YOU MUST decide what you do NOT want to repeat in your new Bathroom and then with that in mind what you would like to have that you don't have now. A trip to the plumbing showroom may be helpful, there you will see Bathroom after Bathroom each with it's own unique design. (Hint) If you need help finding a good showroom floor call the Remodel staff at 3R's Construction, they will gadly point you to some fabulous displays. Another great source of ideas is visiting some of the more luxury hotels in Portland.. In the lobby they often showcase the best of what they have to offer. The Benson and Columbia Gorge Hotel are two fine examples.
No time to travel? Visit websites like www.3rsconstruction.com and virtual stores to decide what type of wood and what style of cabinets need to be purchased. Do you want solid wood or Melamine shelves? Specialty drawers and pull outs? This selection will likely take awhile and having your contractor or a 3R's Construction supervisor come alone with you will help in making this process more efficient.
With these decisions made the next step is to start putting your ideas on paper. It is difficult to think "outside the box", many of the functional aspects of your original design will likely be repeated. If this is the case for you, be sure it is because you want these attributes and not because you could not see beyond the habits you have formed out of necessity. If you haven't called 3R's Construction or another reputable Remodeling contractor at this point you should seriously consider the value of having an experienced professional working alongside you as your dream Bathroom begins to take shape.
Let's start with available space. Are the walls movable? Are you limited to the space your have? Can you redesign the cabinets or reposition the fixtures to give you the space you are hoping for? What about surrounding rooms? Can any of them be modified to maximize the available space? It is important to consult with the professionals at 3R's Construction about this part of your project. During the original building phase of any home the professional trades people often times take full advantage of every nook and cranny to bury wires, pipes and vents in an effort to keep the space clean and efficient. Opening a wall or removing it may be the perfect solution for your new Bathroom but that wall may be hiding budget busters, gas lines, water, sewer, electrc or even HVAC. Any of these little surprises can be remedied but will require more time and increase the overall cost of the project. A Bathroom Remodel Specialist like those on staff at 3R's Construction and Remodeling can be extremely valuable at this point. Remeber, these folks do this all day long. They study Bathroom design, attend classes specializing in maximizing your usable space and spend an inordinate about of time helping other 3R's customer recognize their dream Bathrooms. Often we can determine the relative success or failure of a project by the amount of time and detail that is invested in to the front end of it.
When the design is complete it is time to review the basics. Are all of the required or desired fixtures accounted for? Have you budgeted for moving utilities? Have you come to an agreement with your contractor on how long you will be without your Bathroom while the work is underway? If so, now the fun begins!
In Salem, Oregon there are several great options to complete your new Bathroom Remodel with all of the finishing touches. Your Construction and Remodeling contractor from 3R's will want to spend time with you to personalize this new and exciting addition to your home to make it uniquely yours and the showcase of your home.
