Bathroom Remodel Schedule

In today’s post-pandemic world there are a lot of supply chain issues and shipping delays. This means it takes longer to do renovations. Therefore, having a realistic timeline for the project is key.

Add a Walk-in Shower

A walk-in shower with glass really makes a bathroom feel luxurious. This is also a great option for a small bathroom remodel that doesn’t have room for a bathtub. Add a ledge at the bottom to waterproof the stall.
