Types of Bathroom Remodeling Projects Areté Handles

We handle many different types of bathroom renovation and design projects. Each client benefits from our customized approach, as every bathroom has a different footprint, style, and feeling. With that said, there are a few general bathroom project requests that we receive more often than others. Here’s a brief list:

Bathroom Updates

bathroom design in ChicagoSometimes, bathrooms just need a refresher after you’ve lived with the old one for long enough. When that time comes, Areté is there with all of the skills and resources you need. Here are some of the bigger projects we handle:

  • Installing wet floor or curbless showers for luxurious, large showers
  • Replacing worn, outdated, or damaged soaking tubs
  • Replacing sinks, toilets, and other major fixtures
  • Adding built-in storage, floating shelves, or medicine cabinets in smaller bathrooms
  • Installing skylights
  • Installing heated floors and towel warmers
  • Upgrading ventilation systems
  • Re-arranging the layout to maximize space and function
  • Moving or extending plumbing lines
  • Changing floor tile or replacing wall tile with full quartz or stone slabs

Areté is the place to go for bathroom installations and updates. Please reach out with any ideas you have, whether you’re interested in a cosmetic overhaul or a full gut remodel.

If you can dream it — even if you don’t know exactly how to execute your plans — we can help bring your dream to fruition. Bathroom updates, additions, and remodels are among the most common requests we receive. With almost two decades of experience, we look forward to including your project in our portfolio.

Bathroom Design for New Homes In The Chicago Area

luxury bathroom designers in ChicagoWe design and build experts, including new home construction projects. Our team has extensive experience coordinating and scheduling the complexity and amount of detail that goes into managing new construction projects. We manage the full process from architectural drawings and design, permitting, breaking ground, through final completion, and receiving final occupancy.

Designs for Upcoming Home Sales

Bathrooms and kitchens remain the top two rooms that buyers want to see updated. A well-managed and high-quality update can really increase the wow factor of a listing and bring the seller a higher return on investment. Here are some of the most popular bathroom projects for sellers that help them get the largest return on their investment:

  • Neutral colored paint throughout
  • Neutral tile in a simple pattern
  • Updated shower fixtures and faucet
  • Updated vanity and countertop
  • New lighting fixtures

We find that simpler bathroom remodeling tasks are popular among homeowners who aren’t 100-percent sure of their sales timeline. Even if you’re not sure you’re selling right away, you can get some improved quality of life (and increased home value) while you organize everything for your transition.

Bathroom Renovations as Part of Complete Gut Rehabs

modern bathroom designAnother common job request we get at Areté is renovating bathrooms as part of larger rehab projects. This covers a lot of ground, so here are some of the sub-categories:

  • Renewing vintage or historical property to original styles
  • Converting attic space into a full master suite
  • Condo de-conversions
  • Complete interior build-outs
  • Converting industrial lofts to residential space
  • Interior re-designs for Craftsman, Victorian, and historic landmark homes

Depending on the property and the project, we can handle sourcing vintage fixtures, doing period research, and expanding bathrooms (moving walls, building partitions, etc.). For commercial buildings, we can manage multi-unit projects so everything runs on schedule and within budget.
