How to Get Started with a Bathroom Remodel

To remodel a bathroom is to understand the function of a bathroom – and it's a wide range. Bathrooms are an often overlooked but extremely important part of your home, to be used for everything from hosing off the dog after they decided to roll in the mud, to drawing yourself a bubble bath after a hard day. From getting your kids ready in the morning with only minutes to spare until the school bus arrives, to standing under a rainfall showerhead with your favorite music blasting to get some 'you' time.

Our bathrooms should be our sanctuaries, and if you are no longer finding that in your bathroom, it may be time to remodel! It all starts with your dream, our team, and a phone call. Our design-build team will listen to your ideas, expectations, and current bathroom situation, then walk you through each step of our design-build process.

At Compelling Homes, our dedicated in-house team will help you plan every last detail, help you pick out the best materials and finishes, and answer any questions you may have along the way. We're in this with you, and there is no such thing as an idea too small or too extravagant. 

So what do you say, are you ready to create your own oasis?



Bathroom Design & Remodels in Des Moines

Every project begins with a vision – a dream. Your job is to dream as big as possible, and our job is to bring that dream to life! Our team utilizes  3D software that allows you to view your space from different angles before construction begins, with different features and fixtures, until it's just right.

Whether your Pinterest board is full of inspiration or you're looking for some design direction, we're here to help, so let's talk!

We'll be thrilled to walk you through our 5-step process on how we can lead you from where you are to where you wish to go.

How Will I Know It's Time to Remodel My Bathroom?

Here's a quick and easy quiz:

Is your bathroom design a few decades behind?
Do your faucets have any leaks?
Do the cabinets in your vanity need updating?
Do you and your spouse or family members struggle to get ready comfortably?
Are you dreaming of turning that corner shower into a walk-in or soaking tub? (Or both...)

If you answered YES to any of the above, it sounds like your people need to call our people! 

How Much Will It Cost?

An important step in planning your bathroom remodel is determining a project budget. Researching the average bathroom remodel cost can be a bit tricky, as the answer depends on several factors, including the size of the space, the age of your home, and the scope of work to be completed. To get a better idea of expected costs based on your current bathroom size, future wants, and needs, we've created a dedicated cost guide!
