What is the Average Cost of a Bathroom Remodel?

What is the Average Cost of a Bathroom Remodel?  That's the 1 million dollar question!

According to Home Advisor, "Homeowners have many options when they remodel a bathroom and the total cost depends on style and budget. The average bathroom remodel costs $9,376, but you can spend less - between $3,500 and $7,000 - to fix up the essentials in a small- to medium-sized bathroom. On the other end of the spectrum, you could spend $13,000 to more than $20,000 on a master bathroom remodel to make it an oasis. Most homeowners spend between $5,561 and $13,197."

This separated bathroom was integrated beautifully by using the same waterfall rain stone tile back splash as the design strip in the walk-in shower.  

Travertine tiles were used on the floor in the wet areas and natural cork, which tied in beautifully with the matched grain vanity. The look and feel is style combined with Zen.

How to Make a Small Condo feel Spacious

How do you make a small Condo feel spacious?  Easy, take out a wall or two, add an island with seating and enjoy!

This 900 sf Condo felt too small so with the judicious removal of some walls, the relocation of laundry and furnace, it now feels wide open with plenty of room. 

The Caesarstone Wild Rice countertops contrast nicely with the ceramic subway tile
backsplash, painted Shaker style cabinetry, and the rustic wood flooring.  Adding lovely style touches like the stainless Farmhouse sink and conveniently located built-in Microwave, and you are ready for either a party or some quiet time!

Dark wood vaulted ceilings in the Living Room made the space feel overwhelming and oppressive, while an old 1960’s block wall at the entry and the fireplace surround closed in and dated the space. 

By painting the wood and beams a fresh white and removing a partial wall by the entry, the spaciousness remained without the heavy feel.  The natural stone on the fireplace is surrounded with a reclaimed wood mantle which makes it cozy and the custom painted wood shelving adds character while showcasing some favorite collected art and ceramics.

If you have any questions about this gorgeous remodel, please give us a call!  We'd love to help you fulfill your design dreams.

New After Photos of Kitchen, Bathroom, Living Room, and Dining Room

Projects General Construction, Inc. recently had the privilege of remodeling a client's entire home and we're excited to finally be able to share the "after" photos with you!

This Master Bathroom says relax in a very fabulous way.  Starting with a freestanding contemporary tub and a walk in shower that adds tremendous visual interest, thanks to the Metallica tile with several niches for all things needed and beautiful!  The Titan Lagos countertop ties it all together while adding its own personality.  The frosted glass door and panel to the water closet allows privacy and light at the same time!

In the guest bathroom, we mixed a cool, contemporary look with exciting tile colors in varying sizes and style.  The fixed glass panel at the walk-in shower keeps water where it belongs, yet invites you in.  Warm, neutral colors were selected for the tile, while titan lagos countertop along with the rich wood vanity create an understated elegance.

In the kitchen, the client was looking for a sleek, ultra-contemporary look, so we selected cabinetry with the added flair of the chevron natural stone backsplash and Caesarstone counter top. The contrast of the classic Mexican Saltillo tile flooring adds warmth while the windows let in the gorgeous city views. 

We also updated the living room and dining area to go with the cool, comtemporary look and feel so they flow with the updated bathrooms and kitchen.
