Tips To Get The Most Out Of Twin Cities Bathroom Remodeling

Our Design-Build Team Shares Some Professional Insights To Help You Plan Ahead


Executive Remodeling is a well-established Twin Cities design-build firm specializing in residential home remodeling, renovations, and expansions (since 2005). If you head to the Meet Our Team page, you’ll see our company represents a large, versatile swath of experience across all sectors of the local industry.

While we can build anything that can be professionally designed within local code restrictions, we break our services into five sections:

With bathrooms, whether they’re an addition or part of a completely new layout for your Twin Cities home, we’re often aiming for beauty, functionality, and adding value – whether you intend on moving or not. Like kitchens or basements, bathrooms are always a big-ticket home remodeling option.

For budget-conscious clients, keeping costs under control is an overarching goal, as well. In these cases, we have some insights we like to share during initial Consultations.

How Much Will My Bathroom Remodeling Project Cost?

While there are endless amounts of basic round numbers on the internet, what you really should get your hands on is a professional estimate from your specific Twin Cities area. That’s where we come in. It means scheduling an introductory visit to your home so we can capture the data we need to give you the most straightforward, honest pricing.

Beyond the numbers, we can give you seasoned advice, suggestions, and recommendations on how to get the most out of your bathroom remodeling budget. Our team will spot obvious and potential challenges and explain the things you need to know in detail.

All that being said, here are some helpful tips to consider.


Tips To Get The Most Out Of Your Bathroom Remodel 

While updating a bathroom can be one of the costliest home remodeling projects to undertake, it’s possible to achieve it while staying within budget.

Start With A Qualified Designer

Your Executive Remodeling designer will be there from initial consultations on through the project with you step by step. Perhaps not as much in person as your project manager, but you’ll see their expertise from the moment they step into your home.

Their goal is to help you stay within budget, yes, but also to help you maximize and optimize the space, whether it’s a small bathroom or one we’re building from scratch with tons of room. Personalization is key. Customization is key. Having a keen, seasoned eye on your project ensures the PLAN is perfected before any demo/construction begins.

Getting A Handle On Costs

We start with a vision based on core needs and solutions to problems and then dial in on specifics. Line by line, product by product, material by material, tool by tool, we begin putting the cost framework together.

Every detail means needs a decision, and that decision has a price tag: cabinetry, storage, bath/shower, lighting, flooring, tile work, structural changes, aging-in-place solutions, etc.

Beyond this level of detail is the labor. We’ll be the ones who schedule everything and collaborate with all the specialists involved in your bathroom remodeling project to make it a smashing success! This craftsmanship, done well and with precision, isn’t cheap in the Twin Cities.

Keep Bathroom’s Size & Layout

Speaking of local trades, no matter what room we’re working in, plumbing is among the most expensive aspects of any home remodel. One way to lower or reorganize your budget is to keep the existing layout intact. If we’re building a bathroom addition, well, that’s another story. 

Can we enlarge a bathroom space without moving around water-using fixtures? Sure! For example, we may want to keep the toilet area as is. Toilets are especially costly to move, as it involves moving the toilet discharge and sewer pipe as well.

The same can be said of the electrical system. These are the types of perspectives that most Twin Cities homeowners lack during their beginning “research” phase. You might understand that leaving plumbing and electrical alone will save on costs, but you need to know the nuts and bolts numbers to see how everything works.

We can help if you’re in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area.

Leave Load-Bearing Walls Alone

If we’re thinking of doing a bathroom expansion, we could look at doing it without moving a load-bearing wall. These walls hold up the roof or a second floor and can be complex and costly to move. Non-load-bearing walls can be moved or removed with less cost and effort.

Reign In Design Choices

No matter what material we’re looking at, these days, you’ve got a range of options to choose from – a spectrum of cost and corresponding value. When costs are a serious concern, your designer can help you understand the benefits, weights, and measures of each.

For example, a vanity, tile work, or storage options. During the planning and design phase, when these selections must be made, you’ll see how they impact overall budgeting.
