Most of us look through home interior magazines for styles we want to incorporate into our bathrooms. This can comprise of one cosmetic change at a time or a total rip down and reconstruction of the bathroom. Our previous clients have ordered all different types of bathroom remodels, from the simplest to the most complex of tasks. In the process of remodeling you could come across problems that need specialized knowledge such as plumbing and electrical issues.

As a full-service design/build contractor, we can handle every aspect of your interior remodel from concept through completion. The average bathroom remodel yields a return of investment of about 60% percent. Upfront, a shower curtain is significantly less expensive than a glass door, but over time, the cost and hassle of cleaning and replacing it adds up. You can add between $350 and up to $2,000 to your renovation budget if you decide on a glass door.

In this video, New Life Bath & Kitchen President Chuck Winkles walks you through a bathroom remodeling project in Lompoc, CA. We were able to complete this phase (even with the surprise bathtub) without running up our credit cards, and we aren’t sacrificing the things we love (like a tile floor) for the sake of budget and time constraints. Overall keep an eye on your contractor, keep them honest and look all around, especially on the web for checking out ideas and contractors as well. We were sitting in the bedroom looking into the bathroom last night and were just amazed that this room is in our house.
