East Cobb Bathroom and Closet Makeover
This month, we share a makeover story about an East Cobb family. They found us after searching an East Cobb Mom’s Facebook group for general contractor recommendations. Their project was an overhaul and upgrade to the master bathroom. Since the children were getting older, they wanted to get away from “kid friendly” and spoil themselves with something luxurious! Their 1970’s East Cobb home was certainly behind the times and ready for an update.
They had met with other contractors and had been given a bounteous amount of ideas and drawings to consider. However, with so many choices, they couldn’t come to a decision.
In situations like this, we encourage the client NOT to decide!
We instead suggest that before they make up their minds on the final design, we completely gut the whole area first.
Long ago, we learned that after clearing out the old space in preparation for the new, our clients can finally grasp the vision for what their “dream” bathroom or other room might be. This new, empty area allows them to make better decisions for their actual day-to-day needs.
First, we start with an agreed upon budget for the project, knowing we will have to relocate plumbing and electrical as part of the design. After the budget is approved, we move onto clearing the space. Demolition is followed up with the designer consultation meeting. This is the fun part where the new layout gets finalized.
Renovation begins when we start to rebuild the new walls and move the plumbing and electrical. Part of this remodeling project was the elimination of the master bathtub. The client instead opted for a huge shower. We are seeing this trend in today’s modern master bathroom; tubs seem to be more of necessity when you have smaller kids. For this East Cobb family, there is still one tub in the house if needed.
The next part of our renovation was the expansion of the closet. We came up with the perfect plan that answered their needs and fit within the design of the space. Our highly experienced carpenter brought great ideas to the table, which the client agreed were perfect for the area. Walls were moved to make the closet functional, and door openings added. We installed support beams and closed a small closet entrance from the bedroom side.
As a result of this process, they are so happy with their new space. We received continual praise during the project for the good ideas we submitted, the high level of communication we strove for, and also the tremendous degree of skill our workers employed.
