INITIAL BATHROOM REMODEL CONSULTATION
We will provide you with a personal hands-on consultation with one of our highly trained and experienced design consultants. Don’t worry, this is free of charge. We’ll make sure that the manner by which this is done is fun, informative and can help you arrive at an informed decision. Our design consultant will walk you through our product selection and design concepts. The objective of the initial consultation is to get to know you first as a customer so we can better help you navigate the different options available. Our goal is to understand what you are trying to achieve with regards to your bathroom renovation. We want to get your input on the style, materials, color, budget and timetable in order to finish the project as per your specifications.
We will be reviewing your goals for the project or if you do not have a specific set, we will advise you properly so you can be able to understand and identify the objectives of the remodel and integrate them in your plan. At Milano Dezign it is our belief that the success of any remodeling project comes from having clearly defined objectives.
DETERMINING THE CONCEPT OF YOUR NEW BATHROOM
There are literally hundreds of styles to choose from. If you are not sure of what style to choose we shall enlighten you on some classic and tested styles, what is fashionable and what is currently trending today. At this point in the process, we are only providing you with a bathroom concept but rest assured that you can still change this later.
SPECIFYING USABILITY OF YOUR BATHROOM
The new layout of your bathroom, depending on the design you have chosen, could require new plumbing, electrical work or moving of walls. There might be special needs such as higher counters or even a walk-in shower. At this point we will try to determine as much of these features as we possibly can so that they can be included in our quoted estimate. The goal is to provide you with a realistic estimate, but by no means this is locked as it can easily be altered later.
SPECIFICATION OF MATERIALS, HARDWARE AND PRODUCTS
Evaluation of Space and Construction of Your Bathroom
This is where the real fun begins for you as you get to see an entire line of hardware, materials and products designed to make your bathroom the best it can be. There are elegant materials, counters, cabinets and other hardware that can produce a distinct look and feel for your bathroom. This is where you can rely on the extensive Milano Dezign experience to assist you on how to save money and develop and build your ideas in line with what you want to achieve for your home. We shall discuss how we can find a balance on your ideas with how much it translates to cost. From this, we will be able to give you advise on alternative materials to use and provide you with samples of these products whenever possible. We will introduce you to different materials that look and feel like the most expensive natural material but at a lesser cost. This will become the foundation for the true estimate of your bathroom-remodeling project.
The space required to integrate the changes you desire for your bathroom will require us to do some modifications as necessary. As we are discussing your plans and objectives we shall be taking measurements in order to help us in discovering your options or if there is a need to perform mid-level construction. Don’t worry, we shall be as unobtrusive as possible for your convenience.
CHECK PLUMBING AND ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
The bathroom is one of those places (apart from the kitchen) that may require both plumbing and electrical modifications. This is pretty evident if you intend to move around your fixtures and add or change the location of your electrical outlets. These are very important cost factors that should be added to the estimate as soon as possible so you may have a good idea of the overall expense.
TIMELINE & ESTIMATE FOR YOUR BATHROOM REMODELING PROJECT
After evaluating the project with you each step of the way, we shall now provide you with a written estimate of the cost and timeline of the bathroom remodel project. Our estimate will be given to you as soon as possible. We would like to inform you that the estimate is based on the general ideas that have been discussed together. We know that every remodeling project is unique and you may have some ideas or changes planned that can alter the details of the estimate. We know that this is all part of the process. We have the ability to plan and change at your convenience the cost depending on what other ideas you may want to alter integrate into the project.
