Olympia Bathroom Remodeling

Olympia bathroom remodeling contractors: When it’s NOT the time for DIY

Bath Remodeling ProfessionalsIt’s often a relatively small room, the bathroom. Yet when it comes to an Olympia bathroom remodeling project, changing up your bath can be anything but simple.


That’s why it’s important to find an Olympia bathroom remodeling contractor who is knowledgeable, trustworthy…and experienced at transforming your bathroom into a welcoming and pleasant “retreat” in your home.


Bathrooms today truly are becoming small sanctuaries from the cares of the workaday world. Marble or granite countertops can grace your vanity. Lovely patterned tiles can create a room akin to those sumptuous baths of ancient Rome. A whirlpool tub or spa with custom shower heads can wash your stress away.


What’s more, a bathroom renovation is one of the few remodeling projects in which you can recoup a good amount of your cost when it comes time to sell your home. Remodeling Magazine online reports that, in 2007 (the latest figures available), residents of California, Oregon and Washington recouped an average of more than 96 percent in the cost of their bathroom remodel when they sold their home.


Not all Olympia bathroom remodel projects are the same, of course.

Many people believe an Olympia bathroom remodeling project is a relatively simple thing to undertake. After all, many bathrooms are small, not much bigger than a walk-in closet.


If your bathroom is small and if you’re thinking of only painting the walls and trim, removing/replacing the countertop on small vanity, and perhaps switching out your faucet, mirror and mirror lights, you might be able to do it yourself.


But the operative word is “might.” Olympia bathroom remodeling projects may look simple but they too often are not.


This especially is the case if you’re thinking of doing a major remodeling project such as:

  • Removing a bathtub to put in a glass-walled/tiled shower.


  • Replacing a single-sink vanity with a double-sink vanity: you’ll need plumbing expertise to add a second sink.


  • Enlarging your vanity may mean you need to move a toilet. Again, plumbing expertise is essential.


  • Will you need to remove a wall or add a wall in order to enlarge your bathroom? Again, having skilled Olympia bathroom remodeling contractors on your team is absolutely critical.

The average cost of a bathroom remodel in the three Pacific Coast states mentioned above was $18,112 in 2007, according to Barth Room Remodel ExpertsRemodeling Magazine online (nationally, the average cost was a bit more than $15,000).
