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.

Master Bathroom Home Remodel in Phoenix

Home-Remodel-Architect-PhoenixIf you’re planning a large home remodel, remember no matter the scale and size of your project, it’s always wise to break up your overall home remodel into small, individual tasks for each room.  Take your master bathroom for instance;  whether you’re looking to create an atmosphere of personal indulgence OR a practical, cost efficient update, here are a few things to help improve your results.

Start with a Quick Sketch of your Phoenix Home Remodel

Creating a dimensioned floor plan drawing of your home remodel is always a good idea, but also ask your Architect to draw a quick hand sketch to help you visualize how all the little details of your home renovation fit together.  A quick sketch will really give you a 3-dimensional view of your home remodel ideas.   It will also help your contractor put together an early cost estimate to confirm your budget goals.

Add Storage and Get Organized in your Home Remodel in Phoenix

Home-Remodel-Architect-Scottsdale– Get 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 an alternative to a medicine cabinet and will allow easy access to your products and quick, easy clean up.
– Add bathroom cabinets, drawers, pull-out shelves or even carts to store necessary items.
– Consider installing towel racks that also function as grab bars . If it’s designed well, a fully accessible bathroom will end up looking like a gorgeous, light-filled home that will keep you safe for years.


Add Architectural Elements to your Home Remodel

You might stay a little warmer while showering if you consider lowering your 12′-0″ bathroom ceiling.  Some things to discuss with your architect include:



– Add some architectural elements like arches, soffits and columns similar to those shown in the sketch on the left.
– Large soaking tubs, once all the rage, have fallen out of 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 an issue in your master bath, consider a Phoenix home remodel that will expand it in any direction possible. Extra square footage will open up your cramped bathroom and increase the possibilities.
– Try increasing the natural light into your master bathroom with a sun-tube or skylight.

And remember, when you perform an upscale home remodel in Phoenix to your bathroom, you will recoup approximately 57.2% of the remodel cost when you resell, according to the 2010 – 2011 Cost vs. Value Report.
