Boerne Bathroom Remodeling Company Creates Custom Master Bath Spaces

People who seek a unique and beautiful master bathroom can choose from a wide array of possibilities. Many individuals prefer to have some influence in the planning and design of such a room. A skilled Boerne bathroom remodeling team can help residents to attain the custom-designed bathrooms of their dreams.

Some people are most concerned with having enough storage space. Sometimes, it may seem as though a household does not have enough room to store things like soaps, cosmetics, shaving accessories, and towels. A master lavatory should have sufficient cabinets and shelves to house everything that its owners need it to.

The bathtub and shower in a specially-designed washroom should match the preferences of those who use the room. The options are profuse, from sunken tubs to showers with saunas. If a client wishes, a shower stall can even be extended into a long passageway, so that no door or curtain is necessary.

To a lot of individuals, windows are a priority. Countless people enjoy gazing out of a strategically positioned window, as they luxuriate in scented bubbles. Another popular feature in bathrooms is the skylight, through which natural light may stream beautifully.

Not to be forgotten are the sink, counters and floors. A sink that stands alone, without a cabinet, can be decorative and useful. Such a sink may be especially charming in a room designed in a vintage style. Many individuals prefer to have a sink that is attached to a counter, which might be made of marble or glass. The floor in a master lavatory may be laid with gorgeous ceramic tile, to create an elegant feel.

No matter what style a person seeks to achieve, designing a custom washroom can be fun. However, completing such a task alone may be overwhelming. A Boerne bathroom remodeling company can assist in the process, so that people can have the master bathrooms they desire.

When ‘DIY’ Might Not Be the Most Suitable Option

As capable and adept human beings, it is not uncommon to make the impetuous assertion that “I can do THIS myself. ’ We have all done  it before. I am sure that you can think of a time where you disassembled (or assembled) something, in hope of a quick repair (or  assembly), only to end up with a pile of pieces that eventually end up in the trash. This analogy can be applied to home repairs and renovations , as well.The bottom line is that, although many may think they can do a home project on their own, many homeowners  improperly assess the magnitude of projects, particularly with regard to renovations, remodels, or upgrades. Unfortunately, this  realization often occurs after the homeowner has expended both time and money into a project, and at times, actually caused more of a  mess than a renovation.

Having been in the home remodeling business for 17 years, as owner and founder of Ballroom Baths & Home Design, I have  witnessed two scenarios far too often. The first involves a weary spouse, whom, as I provide a consultation, maintains the position that  they are surely capable of completing a particular renovation project on their own. The second involves a subsequent call informing us that the spouse was unable to complete the project independently, or worse, that an attempt was made, which has resulted in damage.Prior to making the self-determination that you are properly equipped to manage a home renovation, it is first necessary to understand exactly what it is you are getting yourself into. The following is provided by Ballroom Baths & Home Design to guide homeowners in assessing the potential consequences doing a home renovation yourself, versus obtaining professional assistance.

Plumbing. Replacing an existing fixture with a new one, does not necessarily mean that the existing pipework will be suitable. For example, a modern pedestal sink with the old pipework showing rather defeats the purpose of installing the new fixture altogether. For insistent Do-it-Yourselfers, making sure that new fixtures are compatible with existing plumbing work is crucial. If the fixture you want requires the installation or alteration of existing plumbing, professional assistance is recommended.

Electrical Supply. As with plumbing, home renovation must either be compatible with existing electrical sources, or the electrical supply must be relocated. However, unlike plumbing where potential risks involve visible pipe lines or water damage,home renovations involving the installation of items which require an electrical supply present the risk of electrocution. In general, home remodeling requiring the relocation of electrical sources should never be attempted by those without the appropriate experience and expertise. In fact, some renovations actually require the work to be performed by a licensed professional.

Weight Bearing/ Necessary Structural Components. A noticeable trend in recent years is the desire for open space, as opposed to traditional design, where each room is divided by a wall, and therefore remains separate and distinct. However, knocking down a wall is not always as simple as one may think. Aside from the obvious consideration of existing plumbing or electrical sources which may be present, it must also be determined if the wall is a necessary structural component (i.e. weight bearing). If the design of your home is such that a particular wall was constructed as an intended structural support, removal of the wall will require [the right reinforcement; for redistribution of weight] to ensure the home remains structurally sound. As stated previously, if you are unsure, you should never attempt demolition projects without the assistance of a licensed professional.

Permits/ Compliance with Codes. The vast majority of home renovation projects require permits; and ALL home projects require compliance with applicable building codes, as well as other applicable state and local regulations. Failure to adhere to regulatory guidelines can not only endanger your family’s safety, but also can result in fines. At Ballroom Baths & Home Design, we always ensure compliance with any and all applicable regulations.

Tile work. There is much more to tile work than the average homeowner may think. Improper installation can result in a situation where you find yourself working around a mistake, and will inevitably be unsatisfied with the final product. Moreover, if the project needs to be completely redone, not only will you have to repurchase more tile and other necessary materials, but you will have to remove the old materials and re-prep the surface. In sum, tile can be expensive, but demolition is much more expensive.

Warranty Issues. Another problem that Do-it-Yourselfers may face is the potential for voiding the warranty associated with a particular product. Some product warranties require installation be performed in a specific manner, and others specifically require the installation be performed by a licensed professional.

Painting. Plain white walls and ceilings are no longer as popular as they once were. These days, bold wall colors, accent walls, and painted ceilings are the clear preference. Interior painting is one of the most common projects attempted by Do-it-Yourselfers. Prior to taking on such a project, there are important considerations that you should make. In the case of a bold wall color, you need to make sure that there are clean lines between the wall and ceiling or the wall and trim. Over time, the foundation in your home can settle, causing slight unevenness, which can be very noticeable when paint is applied. Also, many homes have construction defects, which are often unnoticeable prior to painting. Nothing looks worse than an uneven paint line –not only will you always notice it, but your guests are sure to notice it too! The preferred solution is to get it done right the first time by a professional.

Why Boerne Residents Continue to Invest in Home Remodeling

Boerne, Texas is a quaint community, located outside San Antonio, Texas with an affluent population of just under 12,000. Having the motto “as unique as our name,” Boerne is known for its ‘hometown’ ambiance, historic districts, and attractive homes. The economic stability of the city’s real estate makes Boerne, Texas a coveted city for homeowners and their families. Unlike many areas affected by our nation’s recession, the residents of Boerne, Texas, continue to enjoy the benefit of increased real estate values in comparison to other areas. Ballroom Baths takes note of Boerne’s prosperity and encourages homeowners to assess economic trends within the city when making the important decision to remodel or upgrade their homes. Through understanding the city’s demographics, when compared to both state and national demographic data, potential concerns regarding return on investment can be easily eliminated. As of the most recent United States Census data, the median home value in Boerne, Texas was approximately $216,000, which is commensurate with the median value of roughly $264,000 for Kendall County as whole. What is notable is that home value data for either the city of Boerne, or Kendall County as a whole, represent figures significantly higher in comparison to median value on the national level. Further, when compared to the median home value for the entire state of Texas, which according to recent census data was at $126,000, the prestige of residing in Boerne, Texas is clearly evidenced. An additional key characteristic of Boerne, Texas is its starkly low owner vacancy rate of only 1.1 %, in comparison to a rate of 2.3 % throughout Texas, and 2.4 % nationwide. Because Boerne homeowners are more than two times as likely to maintain their Boerne property as a primary residence, there is a communal sense of pride. Many may wonder why is it that Boerne enjoys property values significantly higher than those in other cities and states. Well, aside from location, the answer is simple: Maintenance and Renovation. The appeal to Boerne’s upscale living, is the commitment shared by its residents in preserving an environment of opulence and luxury. Boerne homeowners’ dedication to maintaining an unshaken and shared sense of pride in their homes has allowed for the community’s continued success and stability. Provided with security in their property values, Boerne’s residents possess the unique advantage of a perhaps more comfortable decision making process when it comes to assessing a potential investment on their existing homes, whether through remodeling, upgrades, and/or interior design. While there are many simple Do-it-Yourself (DYI) renovations and upgrades that many homeowners are capable of performing on their own, many projects will require the assistance of a reputable company, specialized in the precise type of modification that you are seeking. Rather than independently hiring several contractors, each to perform a specific component of your project, some companies offer the convenience of providing a full range of services. For example, rather than hiring separate contractors for architectural design, plumbing, electricity, tile work, and interior design, and then having to ensure each contractor’s compliance with city codes and permits, many homeowners prefer engaging a single entity to be the sole party responsible for the completion of the project. Situated locally in Boerne, Texas, Ballroom Bathrooms is a full-service provider with a 17 year history of exceeding customer expectations.

White Marble!

Check out this bathroom! The entire floor and walls are beautiful, white marble. Easy to keep clean and make the room look sleek and shiny. With the silver and blue glass accents, you walk inside and the light bounces off of everything around you – really cool! Another circular mirror adds a perfect contrast with the square glass on the walls, but also compliments the shape of the sink. The lights above are great because they have a completely modern look and work perfect with the room, so it’s not too dark and not too bright. My favorite thing, though – the ceiling. The entire ceiling is made of small tiles of blue glass. As you’re walking inside and your eye catches the ceiling, the whole room comes together! This one bathroom is just a part of a brand new house, whose rooms we designed each from the ground up. The marble flows down from the wall and out all the way through the entry room, all around the first floor, and up the stairs to the second floor. The white marble even reaches through a living room and piano/hangout area. After that, sleek, black marble extends throughout the kitchen and dining area. Sounds almost as good as it looks!
