Why does this Tenant Improvement Cost So Much?

    I’m often asked questions like this in the early phases of a tenant improvement. The client has many questions during early phases of an office relocation, and they normally would prefer to pin down the cost question quickly, so they can make a decision whether to move forward.

Scottsdale Master Bath Home Remodel


Master Bath Sketch 1

If you are planning home remodel, don’t forgetno matter the scale and size of your project, it is usually sensible to break up your home redesign into small, individual tasks for each and every room. Take your master bathroom as an illustration; whether you are looking to create a setting of personal indulgence OR a practical, cost efficient improvement, here are some ways to help to improve your returns.

Start with a Quick Sketch of your Scottsdale Home Remodel

Generating a dimensioned floor plan drawing of your home remodel is always a good option, but also ask your Architect to draw a quick hand sketch that may help you visualize how each of the little details of your residential remodel fit together. 3-dimensional sketch of your home renovation can help you visualize your design ideas. It will also help your contractor whip up an early cost estimate to verify your budget goals.

Add Storage and Get Organized in your Home Remodel in Scottsdale

– Get very creative when organizing all your hygiene products. The sketch on the left illustrates a built-in niche in the top of the cabinet centered between two vanity sinks. This is a replacement for a medicine cabinet and may allow easy accessibility to your products and quick, easy clean up.
– Add bathroom cabinets, drawers, shelves
and even carts to keep necessary items.
– There should be at least one place to hang your towels and bathrobe that’s not more than 12 inches from the shower.

Add Architectural Elements to your Home Remodel

You may stay slightly warmer while showering if you consider reducing your 12′-0″ bathroom ceiling.  A few things to re view with your architect include:
Adding some architectural elements like arches, soffits and columns similar to those shown in your sketch on the left.
– Large soaking tubs, once
popular, have fallen from popularity. Instead, people are choosing custom showers, including overhead shower heads, hand-held shower heads, safety grab bars, body sprays and steam showers.
– If space
is a concern inside of your master bath, think about a residential remodel that can expand it in almost any direction possible. Extra sq footage will open up your cramped bathroom and improve the possibilities.
– Try
enhancing the daylight into your master bathroom making use of sun-tube or skylight.

Don’t forget, after you perform a high end house renovation for your bathroom, it is possible to make back approximately 57.2% in the remodel cost if you resell, based on the 2010 – 2011 Cost vs. Value Report.
