Basic Bathroom Update
What you might get: You probably won’t be able to move any plumbing around, but you could replace fixtures and other materials with stock, off-the-shelf products like you’d find in a big-box store.
Countertops: At this level, low-end granite and cultured marble are most popular.
Tile: You could do the floor area with ceramic or porcelain tiles.
Walls: Painting the walls is the most affordable choice here.
Cabinets: If your cabinets are in good condition, paint them or replace with an off-the-shelf cabinet from a big-box store. Lighting, fixtures and finishes: All basic, off-the-shelf products.
Keep in mind that because the plumbing fixtures at this level have plastic pieces on the inside, they will likely need to be replaced every five to seven years.
What you might get: Better fixtures, like a toilet with better flushing capabilities or faucets with better flow. New features like flooring, a vanity, a sink, lighting, window treatments, hardware, a comfort-height toilet, a framed mirror that matches the vanity or recessed medicine chest—all of which are slightly better quality than from a big-box store. Plus, you can make a few more adjustments to the layout. Maybe you’ll put in a slightly smaller bathtub to make way for a slightly larger shower. Maybe you’ll slide a sink down and move the plumbing slightly to add a tall linen cabinet.
Countertops: A higher-grade granite, marble or quartz.
Cabinets: Semi-custom pieces with higher-end finishes—glazed instead of just stained, and decorative details like cabinet legs and intricate door panels.
Plumbing: You can make moderate adjustments to the plumbing, like moving the faucets or shower, but the toilet will likely stay in the relative same location.
Fixtures: You can upgrade the fixtures for ones with higher-quality copper or bronze inside, which will last considerably longer than off-the-shelf units.
Tile: At this level porcelain will be your new best friend. It’s more durable than ceramic and slip resistant, and there are more color, size and design options. Porcelain tiles are designed to mimic natural stone.
Walls: You can get a bit more creative with materials and do tile walls or real beadboard.
Everything will go away, and you’ll put things where you want. You might also punch into an adjacent room for more space or punch out the exterior. The toilet and shower might switch locations, the bathtub might go away and a sauna might come in; all-new high-end fixtures, materials, cabinets, lighting and finishes can be added. The room is likely to be larger. Detailed molding, trim-work and tile-work might also be included.
Cabinetry: Solid wood construction with custom finishes and decorative accent pieces.
Tile: Natural marble, limestone or granite, all of which are more labor intensive and difficult to cut. Natural stone requires more maintenance, but every single tile has its own unique character.
Plumbing: High-end finishes and parts.
Amenities: Steam showers and radiant floor heating.
"Many thanks and highest recommendations to Jason of Bernierremodeling.com for going above and beyond in remodeling our bathroom. From coordinating operations in a single bath home, while replacing an old window and water damaged wall, and gutting and updating the whole
room, Jason made the whole process painless. The finished product vastly exceeds our expectations, especially for such a small space to work with. We highly recommend Jason and will seek him out for future projects."
