Elevating Your Home: Bathroom Remodels with Inks Installations

Are you looking to update your home and add value with a bathroom remodel? Inks Installations is here to help you achieve the bathroom of your dreams. With our expertise in full bathroom remodels and over 30 years of experience, you can trust that your project will be done correctly and efficiently. 

Let’s dive into the steps of planning and executing a successful bathroom remodel with Inks Installations…

Set Design Details

Crafting the design for your bathroom remodel is the first step in a bathroom remodel. This initial phase is about more than just determining aesthetics; it’s about tailoring your bathroom to fit both your functional needs and stylistic preferences. When planning a bathroom renovation, consider what changes would make your space more functional and enjoyable. Determine the bathroom design details you’d like to add – things like wallpaper, tiles, flooring, shiplap, or a new paint color.

Our team will ensure that your design choices align with your vision and practical requirements. We will evaluate the layout to see how to best optimize your space.Then, we will help guide you with the selection of fixtures. Sleek, contemporary fixtures can offer a stark, modern appeal, while more traditional choices can evoke a sense of timeless elegance. Lighting is also crucial as it not only affects the ambiance but also the functionality of the space. 

Inks Installations understands that the materials used in your bathroom remodel—from the tiles on the floor and walls to the countertops—need to be both beautiful and durable. Options like porcelain tiles for flooring can provide longevity and ease of maintenance, while natural stone countertops can add a touch of luxury.

Establish a Budget

Navigating the financial aspects of a bathroom remodel requires a clear and comprehensive budget plan. It’s important to understand that remodeling costs can vary widely due to the scope of the project, space size, the quality of materials selected, and the complexity of structural changes, if any. Bathroom renovations typically range from $6,000 to $30,000, with more extensive remodels leaning towards the higher end of this spectrum. 

Here’s another cost breakdown according to Home Depot:

Powder room remodel: Average Job Cost: $5,000 – $10,000

A powder room remodel may include:

  • Faucet, toilet and vanity upgrades
  • New flooring and lighting
  • Freshly painted walls and/or new wallpaper

Guest bath remodel: Average Job Cost: $14,000 – $20,000

A guest bathroom remodel may include:

  • Upgrading bathtub or shower
  • Updating faucets, flooring and lighting
  • Installing new tile in tub or shower
  • Installing a new vanity
  • Freshly painted walls and/or new wallpaper

Master bath remodel: Average Job Cost: $30,000 & Up

A master bathroom remodel may include:

  • Installing new cabinets/possibly adding a double vanity
  • Replacing faucets
  • Installing a frameless glass shower enclosure and/or a soaking tub
  • Adding a recessed shower caddy
  • Upgrading floor tile and wall tile for shower
  • New lighting, mirror and fixtures

Our team will help homeowners itemize expenses, breaking down costs into categories such as materials, labor, layout modifications and a contingency reserve for unexpected issues. This detailed budgeting allows you to prioritize elements of the remodel that are most important to you while identifying areas where costs can be cut. For example, while opting for high-end finishes and fixtures can significantly impact the project’s overall expense, strategic choices and substitutions can help balance luxury with affordability.

In addition to accounting for the visible components of your remodel, don’t forget about the cost of things you can’t see like updated plumbing, electrical work and potential structural changes. These can contribute to additional expenses, so we can help set aside a portion of your budget to address these critical aspects of your renovation if necessary.

Select Materials

Inks Installations will help guide you through the material selecting process to make sure you choose things that not only match your vision, but also will withstand the test of time. From the sleek look of ceramic tiles for your floors and walls, to the sophistication of granite or marble countertops, every selection plays a role in crafting your desired aesthetic.

We will help you explore a variety of different materials to choose from that fit your budget and achieve the remodel aesthetic that you are looking for. 

Consider Upgrades

Once materials and costs have been determined, we recommend revisiting the design plan to consider swapping in lower-cost materials to incorporate more upgrades, such as outlets in vanity drawers, rainwater or dual shower heads, updated plumbing, or even heated floors. We can help guide you to know which upgrades are worth spending money on and will help increase the long-term value of your home. 

Prepare the Space

The actual renovation work itself can be unpleasant and maybe even disruptive at times, but try to remember that it is a small and temporary price to pay for a new, beautiful bathroom space.

Preparing your bathroom for a remodel starts with decluttering and removing any personal items, giving the team clear access to the workspace. We will also safeguard any items that will remain in the room so they are protected from construction dust and debris. The process may include detaching and removing existing fixtures, flooring, and possibly part of the drywall, depending on the project.

In addition to clearing out the space, it’s important to address any underlying issues that could affect the new installation such as mold, mildew or structural weaknesses. Inks Installations conducts a thorough inspection to identify and rectify these kinds of problems early on, ensuring the longevity and safety of your newly remodeled bathroom.

One thing our team is committed to is keeping the workspace tidy and minimizing the impact it has on the rest of the home. We have dust control measures and work meticulously to respect your living space.
