Overcoming design challenges to create the perfect space
A bathroom remodel allows you to indulge in creature comforts and aesthetic choices that turn the space into something truly special. At times, you may encounter challenges with design elements that seem impossible to overcome. This is where the helpful advice of your general contractor will be especially beneficial.
Consider some of the following information as you begin the process of designing your new bathroom.
Fixtures – One of the best ways to complement your lifestyle is with fixtures that promote enhanced comfort and better health. For example, if you’re in a labor-intensive industry, you may consider installing a Jacuzzi tub in your remodeled bathroom to help you feel better at the end of the day and promote better health. Your general contractor can help you find fixtures that fit within the space you’re trying to create.
Color and Texture – There are countless ways to use color and texture when designing your new bathroom. You can use, stone, tile, marble and other textured surfaces to create an overall aesthetic feel that complements the space and the rest of your home. The color you choose for your bathroom will also influence how you feel as you occupy the space. Your Seattle general contractor will help you create a color palette that is beautiful while enhancing the room.
Comfort Control – The bathroom is a space where comfort is necessary. When you step out of your shower, you want to feel refreshed – not cold. Your general contractor can help you explore a number of ideas to make the bathroom more comfortable. In-floor heating has become popular because the radiant nature of the heat prevents skin from drying out and keeps you warm from head to toe.

Your general contractor from DP Palmer has the experience needed to help you meet your remodeling challenges, so it’s important that parameters are clearly defined as we start the process.
Kitchen remodeling for the most-used room in the house
The kitchen is a nexus of activity in every home. It’s a place where we often start and end our day. It’s a place where families congregate to share the day’s events, or share a toast to some life-changing achievement.
Remodeling your kitchen is an opportunity to enhance and streamline your lifestyle in countless ways. As your getting started, it’s important to consider your lifestyle and share this information with your Seattle general contractor. Indeed, creating the perfect kitchen starts with the daily needs of you and your family.
Some things to consider when remodeling your kitchen
Much of the information above describing bathroom remodeling also applies to your kitchen. However, your daily routine is likely even more effected by the layout and design of your kitchen. The kitchen of a homeowner who enjoys cooking will have a distinctly different kitchen than someone who prefers not to cook. A homeowner with a family will have different kitchen needs than a retired couple.
Your general contractor will help you determine the best way to use your space with counter tops, fixtures, and appliances that work in harmony with one another and maximize the usefulness of the area.
Lighting is another key element in any kitchen remodel, because you want a well lit space to enjoy at any time of day or night. Your kitchen also gets a lot of traffic, so your choice of flooring will ultimately determine the overall value of your remodel.
Cabinets are yet another design choice that requires a lot of thought. There are endless styles of cabinets to choose from, from solid wood to laminate, natural wood-grain, painted, or even custom-built. The cost for cabinets varies wildly, so you have to weigh durability and appearance against the limitations of your budget.
Your Seattle general contractor from DP Palmer will help you throughout the kitchen remodel process, so you never have to worry about the project getting out of hand. Our experience is at your disposal, and we want to create a kitchen space that you and your family will enjoy for many years to come.
