Bathroom Remodeling FAQs: What to Know  

Remodeling a bathroom in your home can be an exciting time. That said, a bathroom remodel is a large undertaking, and you’re bound to have some questions along the way.  

Read on for the answers to some frequently asked questions about bathroom remodeling.  

What is the average cost of a bathroom remodel?

The cost of a bathroom remodel can vary widely depending on the size of the bathroom, the quality of materials used, and the extent of the renovation, so it’s always a good idea to consult with a bathroom remodeling contractor for a personalized quote. With that said, universal design bath remodels often cost approximately $43,000 in the Denver, CO, area.  

At VL Builders, we usually tell our clients to expect about 8% to 12% of their home’s current value depending on whether they’re looking to remodel a master bathroom or a shared hall bathroom. As was noted above, no home or project is the same, and when you schedule an initial consultation with VL Builders, we can learn about your space, understand your vision, and provide you with a quote specific to your project.

How long does a bathroom remodel take?

The timeline for a bathroom remodel can vary from one project to another, but the planning phase typically takes approximately six to eight weeks. The building process often takes about four to eight weeks depending on the size of the bathroom and the complexity of the fixtures being used. Many factors such as client availability to make design decisions, availability of materials, scope of work, and unforeseen issues can impact the project timeline. At VL Builders, we establish a realistic timeline with the client for every project and plan out material deliveries and workdays accordingly.

What should I consider when planning a bathroom remodel?

When planning a bathroom remodel, consider your budget, the design style you want, the functionality of the space, and the materials you wish to use. It’s also important to think about storage solutions, lighting, ventilation, and any special features you might want, such as heated floors or a soaking tub.

Do I need a permit for a bathroom remodel?  

Permits are often required for bathroom remodels, especially if you’re moving plumbing or electrical lines, or making structural changes. You can check with your local building department to determine what permits are needed for your specific project. VL Builders will handle pulling all required building, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC permits when completing your bathroom remodel.

How can I maximize storage in a small bathroom?

It can be hard to maximize storage in a small bathroom, but our design team can work with you to find solutions for your space. Consider using vertical space by installing wall-mounted cabinets or shelves. Opt for vanities with drawers and built-in organizers, and utilize space-saving solutions like over-the-toilet storage units. Corner shelves and recessed niches can also provide additional storage without taking up much space.

We can’t say enough wonderful things about our experience with VL Builders! Our home is an older mountain home, built by my grandfather, and we wanted to do some big updates. We didn’t want to entrust this piece of family history to just anyone. We met with so many potential contractors, but knew from our first visit with VL Builders that they would handle our project with the care and quality that we were looking for. VL Builders delivers on what they say. From day one they communicated what their process would be and what we could expect. Throughout our project, we were kept up-to-date and included in the process. From start to finish, design to final product, we couldn’t be happier. Every individual that we worked with us along the way was fantastic. It was clear by the workmanship of everyone involved that they care about their work product and want their clients to be satisfied. It was so meaningful to see the hope for this home turn in to our reality. Our project turned out even better than we imagined. We’ve heard horror stories of friends and their renovation projects, but we couldn’t have had a better experience. VL Builders actually made our process enjoyable! We truly loved having them in our home and will absolutely, without hesitation be calling them for our next project.

We had heard all the horror stories about the remodeling experience but working with VL Builders was the exact opposite of that. We wouldn't hesitate to use VL Builders again or recommend them to others. Special thank you to Nick, Ken and Alex - Nick for amazing project management and Ken and Alex for superb craftsmanship. Everyone who works for VL was fantastic to work with. We are in love with our new kitchen and look forward to using it for a very long time.

My wife and I met with Nadia and Carole and they were absolutely outstanding to work with. They provided thoughtful and meaningful advice and recommendations, helping us make the right decisions for our family without being remotely pushy or trying to get us to do something that may not be in our best interest. They clearly know what they are doing and would recommend others to connect with them.
