Stylish big bathroom remodel by Hometown Restyling

Did you know that the average person spends more than two years of their lifetime in their bathroom? Think about it. From showering and brushing your teeth to getting ready for work or for bed, we log a lot of hours in our bathrooms. Just hearing those numbers makes you think about whether your bathroom could have a better layout, be larger, more efficient, or simply create more of an oasis in your day.

Our customers reach out to ask about bathroom remodels for a number of reasons. Sometimes it’s because their bathroom is simply outdated and needs a few simple upgrades. Other times they finally have the time, budget, or vision to do a larger transformation. Or, as is often the case, a new life event has occurred, prompting a remodel. This can range from adding children to the family or adapting a home to help an elderly person age in place.

Whatever the need or the reason, our friendly, local team has decades of experience in delivering beautiful and affordable bathroom remodels in Eastern Iowa. We are here to listen to your goals, treat your budget like our own, and deliver a high-quality bathroom remodel backed by a company that has been in business since 1986. Our team is proud of the fact they will not only be here before and during your project, but after. That’s what makes us different. 

In this blog, we’ll outline how our team approaches smaller and larger bathroom remodels. As a full-service company, we can help you with everything from walk-in showers and tub/shower combos to custom tile, vanities, countertops, faucets, fixtures, lighting, toilets, or full bathroom tears out and remodels. We’re here to guide you every step of the way. Not sure what the range of costs are associated with a bathroom remodel? Let’s talk about it. Need help to finance it? We have solutions and are happy to talk you through the options as we talk about your vision for your new bathroom.

Small Bathroom Remodels  

Many homeowners worry that any size of bathroom remodels can turn into a lengthy and messy situation, causing inconvenience and expense. But the truth is that sometimes a remodel can be as simple as removing an old bathtub, switching out a tub for a new shower, or remodeling an existing shower. 

Our partner, Bath Planet, provides the products that make a bathroom remodel easier than you imagined. Bath Planet’s acrylic bath and shower are made to have the same look as ceramic tiles and granite without any of the hassle. The non-porous surface is naturally resistant to mold and mildew so you can have all the stylish touches within your bathroom and spend less time scrubbing the surfaces. 

The best part? Our highly trained crew will come into your space and take detailed measurements of your existing shower and walls. With those measurements, a custom Bath Planet shower or tub/shower combo is made to fit your space perfectly. Our crew will then remove your existing shower or bath and expertly install the new Bath Planet product. This means your remodel is done faster and is more affordable. 

Many homeowners also love this option because it means their bathroom won’t be out of commission for long. Even though these projects are known to have a pretty quick turnaround, we guarantee our team of professionals won’t treat your project as something quick to cross off their list. While other contractors might remove your old setup and fit in your new one and call it a day, our professionals take the time to check out the sub-flooring and any other plumbing issues that could otherwise be missed and become an expensive headache later. 

Are you getting excited about all of the possibilities of what you could do with a smaller bathroom remodel? Whether you’re looking for a walk-in shower, a tub-shower combo, or a barrier-free shower, you can find all the designs and colors that will enhance your space perfectly. You can also take comfort in the warranty behind your new shower or bath because Bath Planet offers a lifetime warranty for as long as you own the residence. Pair that with our lifetime workmanship warranty and you have double the level of protection. This makes even the smallest of bathroom remodels feel like a big improvement!

Big Bathroom Remodels 

Sometimes as much as you try to make your current bathroom work, there’s no way around needing or wanting a larger or more customized renovation. Not every company has experience with these types of projects so be sure to ask for examples of past projects. Our team has extensive experience with big bathroom remodels, and we’re happy to share our expertise. 

Now let’s dig into our process. 

Did you know we have in-house certified kitchen and bathroom designers (CKBD) on staff? These talented designers can meet with you and listen to all your design ideas. They’ll go through your Pinterest pins and saved photos on your phone to get a sense of the look and feel you want to accomplish in your new bathroom. Then they present you with the fixture, tile, and lighting options that help you achieve your desired look. They’ll also share the impressive new technology available and let you decide what things deserve a spot on your “must-have” list. Afterward, they create a detailed plan to help our crew turn that beautiful new vision into a reality. 

We also have an expansive showroom where we invite clients to see and experience our products with their own hands. In our showroom we can help you visualize all the details—whether it’s the star of the room, like the new tub or shower you’ve been dreaming of, or something as subtle as the finish of the handles for your new vanity. Every detail of your room from the lighting fixtures to the tile on the floor is in good hands with our team who will help guide you through every inch of a new bathroom renovation.

As we mentioned, we know bathroom renovations can become necessary once certain family members get older. So whether you need to make your bathroom more accessible right away or want to prepare your bathroom for the future, our aging-in-place specialists can help recommend what can help make your bathroom more accessible for everyone. One of our team’s top strengths is blending both style and functionality into a space.   

We also mentioned that we’re local. What that means is that we know the level of expertise you will get when we send our team to your home. Whether it’s the demolition crew, the tilers, the plumbers, or the installation and clean-up team, every crew member will treat your home as if it’s their own. 

Larger projects mean you will spend more time with our friendly team at your home. They will get to know you and will work with you to do whatever they can to reduce the impact their work will have on your daily routine. We also pride ourselves on cleaning up. In fact, some of our best reviews are from customers who tell us we left their home cleaner than it was before we got there. That’s always our goal!
