From A Very Old and Dated 1999 Master En Suite...To My Dream Bathroom.
It is said the first place potential buyers look when viewing a property, is the kitchen and the bathrooms. The two most important areas of any house for most people. Both in terms of efficiency, looks and investment.
In June 2018 I visited Kitchen & Bathroom Galleries in Burlington to ask if they cold help me put together a plan for the renovation of our old En Suite, which was in dire needs of updating. Everything was builder's grade and showing the signs of wear and tear.
Over the course of several months, I selected and purchased all the fixtures and fittings along with the various extras that we will benefit from as we age in our home.
I cannot over emphasize how important it is to take some time to look at the various websites out there which can help you determine what you really like e.g. Houzz, Pinterest etc. It will help your designer focus upon your style and of course budget.
Once all the components were purchased and ready for delivery...then the Contractors were able to begin demolition of the old bathroom. Demolition Day is an unbelievably quick process. Especially when you are in the hands of people who have plenty of practice and experience under their belt.
The amount of preparation that goes into the planning stage once demolition is complete, will at this point in time pay dividends. There are a million and one variables that go into achieving the final result and every single detail counts. Lots of measuring, calculating, verification and consultation.
Before demolition begins, the contractors will cover any furniture and protect your belongings by covering any open areas, blinds or flooring. Anywhere that could be affected by the dust that will ensue once demolition and renovation begins. They also change into indoor shoes when they arrive each morning. And clear up each evening before they leave. This was a thoughtful gesture which I appreciated.
Your life will be upside down for the next little while! That I can guarantee.
Electrical installations are handled separately at various stages of the project. This is determined by the progress and stages completed by the Contractors. An Electrical Inspection is officially made to the home both during electrical installation and for final inspection at the end of the project.
One more tradesperson who contributed, took the template measurements for the two 9' tall glass panels in my shower stall. The installers were incredible at handling the sturdy glass (but glass nevertheless!) during installation.
Each and every person who played an important role in my renovation has to be commended for their professionalism.
You can be rest assured the people who K & B Galleries assign to your project are very passionate about what they do. Including the showroom staff.
I would highly recommend Kitchen and Bathroom Galleries - Burlington based upon my personal experience.
Thank you to everyone who helped create My Dream Bathroom.
