Prior to renovating, it is important to assess your home properly or have a qualified professional do this for you. Waterproof your bathroom floor, shower recess, and around the bath. Obtain building permits: You can either get your contractor to get the permits or, if you have the time you can save some money by getting them yourself. At the same time, it is imperative to find an experienced multifamily development company that provides renovations services.
Even before receiving the 3D drawing, I really disliked the box ceiling plan because I have been to HDB houses which have incorporated such a design and think that it only looks good if your living room is huge (maybe around the size of two rooms?) which is clearly not the case for us. However, as the ID suggested that it helps to clearly demarcate the living room, we agreed to keep it for the next draft.
We removed the heavy soffit above the tub to open up the space and make it feel less like showering in a box and added a shampoo niche to house the, you know, shampoo. At $40 per square foot glass tiles are far more expensive than plain white ones, for example.
The building is supported by columns and beams which allow virtually all walls in an apartment such as this to be removed if desired. The wall tiles are all up except for the portion where they have to do a box like thing for the soap and shampoo etc. This is why you should evaluate the time and money aspects of the job as well as deciding on all the design aspects of your new bathroom.
A renovation, sometimes called remodeling, is more focused on a specific area of your home, like your kitchen or basement. Whether marble countertops conjure images of luxe elegance or handsome timeworn French kitchens, this classic surface occupies a design territory all its own.
