Things you need to know while choosing your contractor!

Many congratulations! So, you have decided to go for a house remodeling that you’ve been dreaming about since long. What’s about the contractor? Well, this is the most important step that will decide the quality of the outcome. Here, you will find a few questions that you need to ask your contractor before hiring. You should not give them your business if they can’t answer these questions satisfactorily,
If you are looking for a kitchen or bathroom remodeling, it is essential to design the space accurately so that the right cabinetry, fixtures and appliances are purchased accordingly. Ask your contractor about the person who will design your space.
Your contractor should be able to show you the detailed plans and designs for projects they have done so far. If your project is beyond the design abilities of your contractor, expect numerous delays, cost overruns and frustration on your part. And, if your contractor is not a designer, then your project may be too complex for him to handle. In such a case, you may have to hire an architect, an interior designer, a kitchen and bath designer to assure a correctly designed project. And, the result is undesirable and unforeseen expenses!
There are people having harrowed experience with contractors who started the job but never finished it, running away with deposits without even a trace!! Unfortunately, you’ll never find them disappear…..they just change their company’s name to fool some other people. Therefore, always ask about their credentials well in advance.
It is all about being judicious in making your choice. The wiser you are the better will be the outcome of your project!

So, what should be there in a modern bathroom?

So, what should be there in a modern bathroom?

Do you still think that bathrooms are just a mere utilitarian space? Think again!! Be it modest or opulent, the most private space in a house has acquired a star power all its own.
The concept of the vanity plays a role here too. Adventurous sink designs are quite an in thing for bathroom renovations. They can be under mounted or may be the vessel type that sits on a counter, adding beauty and freestanding vanity rather than the same hole cut in the top for a sink.
The hardware and handles should be clean and simple, like other elements in the bath. You’ll also see a bit of nautical-inspired hardware such as galley-style metal pulls, being used in today’s bathrooms.
Earthy look is back now. People now prefer natural colors and materials in bathroom renovations such as stone, matte textures, exotic woods, tumbled marble and limestone.
Commercial products like electronic faucets are also very much desirable. You can have a toilet or rather a ‘gadget’ that does everything electronically, including wash and dry! Now that’s quite Interesting!!
Storage can be installed in the form of shelves and cabinets, niches for displays, or freestanding furniture. And, how can one forget about a shower in a bathroom? Rain showerhead is hot now. Mounted on the ceiling and showering water down gently like rain. Now that’s pretty gentle and soothing. So, if you are up for a bathroom remodeling, make sure that you incorporate the above discussed most popular design elements in your remodeling plan and enjoy the facilities of a modern bathroom!
