Is a Designer Worth it in a Bath Remodel?
Have you ever walked into a room in your home or a friend’s and thought, something is missing here. Why does my friend’s “gorgeous” bathroom with high-end fixtures and imported tile look just, meh? Or why doesn’t my on-trend, all-white kitchen with quartz countertops make my heart sing?
Those feelings of dissatisfaction — even when you’ve selected all of the “right” features in your new kitchen or bath — are because your room was pieced together without an overall design plan. While the classic free-standing soaking tub you chose might be beautiful, for some reason the modern faucet just doesn’t look the way you anticipated.
That’s why at Kashian Bros we pair our customers with a complementary design team for every renovation project. Working with an experienced designer who creates a holistic design plan transforms your kitchen or bath from a boring builder grade project, to a gorgeous room that looks complete and reflects your personal style.
Take for example a hallway bathroom we designed for a client who recently downsized to a townhouse in The Glen. The bathroom was small, but still had sufficient space for a shower and small vanity. You can see from this “before” snapshot that our design team really needed to use their expertise!
The original bathroom was nothing special with its beige walls, builder-grade cabinet, and fixtures you can find at any big box home store. After discussing with our client her needs, style and budget, our design team came up with a plan that took this bathroom from drab to fab without overlooking a single detail.
Our client’s love of color can be seen in the red and white floral wallpaper and contrasting custom blue vanity. The vanity was custom-sized to fit this space — chosen from our curated selection of cabinets — and stands out with coordinating decorative pulls.
Wallpaper is an easy and affordable way to instantly add style to a small bathroom. A custom-designed shower curtain that matches the wallpaper really brings the room together and dials up the wow factor.
Notice how the hand-selected brushed light fixtures coordinate with the mirror and faucet without looking overly match-y. Instead, you’ve got a small bathroom with all the right design flourishes that our client enjoys every time she passes by.
At Kashian Bros, we take a personalized approach to ensure that your bathroom matches your style, at a budget that works for you. We have everything under one roof to take your project from start to finish, plus a complimentary design team to design a bathroom you’ll love for life.
