BATHROOM REMODELING 101
Stop by H4 to see how you can make a large statement in a small bathroom.
While arguably one of the smallest spaces in your home it is a strong contender for most utilized space. If you’re picturing your bathroom, then we’re on the same page, and we’re here to remind you that the bathroom shouldn’t be left as an afterthought. Take a good look around and ask yourself, is my bathroom truly serving its purpose to the best of its ability or does it simply “get the job done?”
At Castle, we want to make sure you’re getting the best return on your bathroom remodeling project by helping you make choices that will last. Just remember, before starting your bathroom remodeling project, you’ll want to familiarize yourself with the Castle Design Process. You can also learn a little bit of our process over in our Kitchen Remodeling 101 blog post.
Castle Building & Remodeling specializes in bathroom remodeling and has completed hundreds of bathroom remodels over the past few years. From simple makeovers to owner bathrooms with steam showers – we have done it all. So let’s take a look a little more in depth on the the design process for a bathroom remodel. Your designer will help you decide if we can work within the existing footprint or if we need to change the layout. They will also help navigate the more fun stuff such as finishes / material, showers vs tubs, add-ons and accessories.
The overall design process takes roughly 2-6 weeks when planning your bathroom remodeling and the actual remodeling process typically takes between 2-8 weeks. While it may feel time consuming, the more planning that happens with your designer before production starts means we have a lower chance of surprises during construction. Some surprises may be unavoidable (hence the term surprise!) but we like to come into a remodeling space as prepared as we can.
Popular bathroom features and products that you’ll want to discuss with your designer include,
but aren’t limited to:
- Sinks & Faucets

Something to consider while making these selections is your budget. It’s a key part of the design and planning process and plays a crucial part in just about every decision. While cabinetry and countertops are one of the most expensive items in a kitchen remodel, we are taking a closer look at plumbing as one of our more potential pricey line items. This can quickly add up if you are planning to move plumbing. It’s always smart to plan ahead for what we couldn’t predict and to save money, which will also save you time.
