Learn About the 3 Types of Kitchen & Bath Remodels

Do you feel like your kitchen or bath needs an upgrade, but don’t know where to start? Just take a closer look inside the space and note which areas need work. Determining the extent of the work involved can help planning your remodel that much easier. DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Elizabethtown/Lancaster, one of the leading bath and kitchen remodeling contractors in the area, can help you with this.

Here’s a quick overview of the three types of kitchen and bath remodels:

  1. Cosmetic Remodel. Maybe the bath sink is looking dated or the kitchen cabinets need better hardware. If the work only requires a few updates instead of a complete overhaul–such as replacing easily removed products–then you might need a cosmetic remodel. This type is generally more cost-effective and less time-consuming than projects that actually make alterations to the room’s structure. While a cosmetic remodel only involves items that are visually apparent, it still adds more value to your home. These include:

  • Getting a new toilet

  • Installing a better-looking mirror or light fixture

  • Refacing cabinets

  • Replacing towel bars, paper holders and faucets

  • Upgrading kitchen countertops, backsplash and appliances

  • Having the walls repainted

  1. Pull and Replace Remodel. Instead of just changing a few things, a pull and replace remodel updates everything in your bath or kitchen space. This type of remodel, however, doesn’t change the location of the replaced product. If your old, leaky bathtub was facing south-facing windows, for example, then your new, freestanding one will likely be in the same place. A pull and replace remodel is especially handy when you don’t have an issue with the current layout. A trusted bathroom remodeling company like us can help with this process.

  1. Custom Remodel. If better looks and function are at a premium in your kitchen, then a custom remodel is in order. This type involves replacing everything in the space and making alterations to item placement. A custom remodel may expand the current room size or redesign layout to better suit you and your family’s needs. A custom remodel may:

  • Rework the placement of your tub, shower, toilet and fixtures in the bath for smoother movement

  • Edit the current layout of your kitchen to optimize meal preparation and related chores

  • Upgrade or add smarter storage solutions

  • Improve function with better lighting and other energy-saving features

  • Enhance the space with a completely new kitchen style

  • Remove a wall, creating a good-sized opening to maximize space
