Consider Simultaneous Kitchen & Bath Remodeling:

When it comes to home improvement projects that increase the value of your home, kitchen and bathroom remodeling are at the top of the list. Each project alone can be a huge undertaking and often requires a significant investment, but one that offers a great return. Because of the upfront cost, most homeowners interested in remodeling their kitchen and bathroom choose to take on each project one at a time. What most people don’t realize, though, is that remodeling your kitchen and bathroom simultaneously offers benefits that cannot be achieved when doing the projects separately. 

At Glenbrook Remodeling, we’re one of the premier kitchen and bath remodeling companies serving Chicago and the surrounding areas. As a design-build firm, our remodeling process is seamless and will transform your existing spaces in no time. If you’re planning on remodeling your kitchen and bathroom in the near, tackling both projects at the same time can be worth it, especially when you work with a premier remodeling company like Glenbrook Remodeling. In this blog, we highlight some compelling reasons to consider kitchen and bathroom remodeling at the same time. 

Saves You Time

Home remodeling projects of any kind take time to complete. While it may seem counterintuitive, choosing to renovate both the kitchen and bathroom at the same time can save months of drawn-out construction and design work. Both remodels will interrupt your normal routine, but doing them together will limit inconveniences since both projects are handled together.

Avoid the unnecessary inconvenience of losing access to your kitchen, and then losing access to your bathroom or vice versa. Instead, plan for both rooms to be out of use and make alternative arrangements. Cabinet and countertop installations can be completed in tandem for both projects, along with plumbing and electrical work, reducing the number of home visits needed for the remodeling contractors and the time these important rooms in your home look like a construction site.

Saves You Money

Costs can quickly add up when you remodel your kitchen or your bathroom. But, just as tackling both kitchen and bathroom remodeling together can save you time in the long run, it can also save you a lot of money. Generally speaking, it is not uncommon for remodeling contractors to charge a premium for smaller projects, such as remodeling a bathroom. While the project is smaller, especially when compared to what’s involved with a kitchen remodel, the contractor still needs to get a crew together, order supplies, and turn down other jobs.

Not only will you be able to save on material costs by buying in bulk, but you are giving a contractor that much more business which, in turn, may result in a better deal on your end.

Cohesive Design

While kitchens and bathrooms serve very different purposes, it can be nice to have a similar, cohesive design between the two rooms to increase the overall aesthetic appeal of your home. Even if the kitchen and bathroom are unique in their own way, a well-designed home has cohesiveness achieved by sharing certain elements, colors, or patterns. When a kitchen and bathroom are remodeled at the same time, it may be simpler for the homeowner and contractor to work together to achieve finished projects that are in-fit perfectly with each other.

Working with a professional design-build remodeling contractor such as Glenbrook Remodeling will ensure that the two spaces are flawlessly designed and complement each other at the outset of the project. Simultaneous kitchen and bath remodeling also ensures that you won’t struggle to find the matching colors, materials, or design elements as you may with individual projects. With a joint remodeling project, it’s easier to have one clear vision with one design-build team.

It’s Financially Possible

As we mentioned, the costs associated with any home remodeling project can quickly add up, which is why many homeowners don’t typically tackle both projects at the same time. However, when you consider the benefits associated with tackling kitchen and bathroom remodeling at the same time, you may think otherwise. Fortunately, having the kitchen and bathroom of your dreams doesn’t have to break the bank. Home remodeling financing can be a great way to have the kitchen and bathroom you’ve always wanted, with all the components, appliances, and cohesive design between the spaces you desire, at an affordable monthly rate.

Reputable remodeling companies, like Glenbrook Remodeling, will offer kitchen and bathroom remodeling financing solutions that will allow you to tackle both projects at the same time without having to worry about limiting the design and other aspects of the projects due to budgetary constraints.

Adds Value

Along with enhancing your personal enjoyment of your home, remodeling your kitchen and bathroom is a great way to increase the overall resale value of your home. Should you ever decide to sell your home, a remodeled kitchen and bathroom with cohesive design can make it worth more than area comparisons, resulting in a greater profit. 

Two newly remodeled and modern spaces that age simultaneously adds tremendous value to your home — it may even influence potential home buyers to be more willing to pay a premium for the home should you choose to list it on the market. Even if you are planning on selling, in addition to the increased home value, you’ll have the value of getting to enjoy and use new features of your kitchen and bathroom, such as energy-efficient appliances, lighting, and water features.

Remodeling your bathroom or kitchen is an intimidating project alone, and the thought of tackling both at the same time is even more daunting. However, it is worth considering the value of doing both projects simultaneously. If one, or both, are on your radar in the near future, give the team at Glenbrook Remodeling a call to discuss your options. Unlike other Chicago remodeling companies, our design-build team handles all aspects of the remodeling process. This means your kitchen and bathroom will be transformed in no-time — you don’t have to worry about them looking like a construction zone for months on end.
