A cosmetic update is a simple a way to revive your bathroom space without doing an entire bathroom makeover. This can include replacing a vanity and sink top, or just laying a new tile floor. Maybe adding a backsplash or some new lighting would spruce up the space, or some combination of any of these. Sometimes a few modifications can make a big impact on the given space. The benefits to this type of update are that they can often be accomplished with a smaller budget in a relatively short period of time with minimal disruption to you and your family.
Remove and Replace Remodel
A remove and replace remodel is pretty much exactly as it sounds. Everything in the bathroom (flooring, vanity, sink top, tile, etc.) is updated and replaced in the original layout. With this type of renovation, no walls are moved or removed and no new design is necessary. You can still achieve dramatic transformation with this type of remodel simply by installing new materials. This can be a great way to update an out-of-date bathroom with a floor plan that still works well for you and your home.
Custom Bathroom Renovation
A custom bathroom renovation typically includes replacing all components of the bathroom that were described in the above remodel as well as reconfiguring or expanding the space. Sometimes with a custom bathroom renovation, walls between adjoining rooms are moved or removed to gain more space. A lot of times this type of remodel includes an addition or bump out. At the very least, the existing bathroom space is changed to incorporate more floor space, an additional tub or shower, or connect to a closet or bedroom(s). Custom renovations are design intensive and most likely involve a new flow for a portion of your home.
