What are the different types of bathroom remodels? 

There are four main types of bathroom remodels:

  • Cosmetic remodel: This type of remodel focuses on updating the finishes and fixtures in the bathroom, such as the vanity, toilet, shower, and bathtub.
  • Functional remodel: This type of remodel improves the functionality of the bathroom, such as by adding a walk-in shower or a new vanity.
  • Renovation: This type of remodeling is more extensive and may involve moving walls or plumbing.
  • Addition: This type of remodel adds an entirely new bathroom to the home.

What are the most important factors to consider when remodeling a bathroom? 

The most important factors to consider when remodeling a bathroom are:

  • Your budget
  • The size and layout of the bathroom
  • The needs of the primary users of the bathroom
  • The style of your home
  • The materials and finishes you want to use

However, every bathroom and homeowner are different, and the factors vary depending on each home. Talk with your contractor to discover what you need to focus on in your bathroom. 

How long does a bathroom remodel take? 

The length of time a bathroom remodel takes will depend on the size and scope of the project. A small bathroom remodel can take as little as two weeks, while a large master bathroom remodel can take up to six weeks. Another factor you’ll need to take into account is materials and supplies timelines. Depending on what you order or what is in stock, you could be waiting up to 8 weeks for specific materials. Contractors can also push back your timeline depending on how busy the season is. Many bathroom remodeling contractors are about 6 to 10 weeks out on their schedules. 

To help you with a timeline, Valor Home Services starts with a free phone consultation to hear your project-specific needs and wants. After the consultation, we’ll create a thorough estimate that includes an estimated timeline. If any changes happen, we’ll also notify you right away, so you are always in the loop.
