Discover New Ideas, Explore Options and Costs

Our design and budget consult is a two step process to help you understand your design options and create an realistic budget for your project.

The traditional estimate process is focused on getting you a single number with as little effort as possible. This often results in inacuracy and confusion.

Our Design and Budget consult is different. It is designed to help you explore all the options and costs for your project and deliver a realistic estimate you can trust.

Our Design & Budget Consult Has 3 Steps:

1. It starts with a home visit to get measurements

2. We create 3D design concepts & a good better best budget

3. Meet in our showroom to review design and budget options.

At the end of the consult you will have 3D concept drawings, a detailed scope of work and a realistic ‘good, better, best’ budget for your project.

Our Approach: Budget Generously

Similar bathrooms, different costs.

A lot initial estimates are aimed at showing the lowest cost a project can be done for. This is usually urealistic and leads to costs increase in design.

Our detailed process starts with ‘good, better, best’ options but we also budget generously, so you have more flexibility in design. 

Costs can vary quite a bit depending on your goals.

One of the most important things when remodeling is trust.

That starts in the estimate process but carries on through design and construction.
