Benefits of a Bath Remodel through Cleveland Design & Remodeling
Communications Through Your Bath Remodeling Process
We seek first to understand then to be understood. Bathroom remodeling begins by us asking what you don't like about your current bathroom. Are you looking to improve safety and make the space easier to use? Do you have a soaking tub that you'd like to eliminate to create a larger walk-in shower? Are you looking for a sleek, clean, contemporary design that will be easier to maintain? Are you tired of looking at dated colors? Our process begins by listening to you and providing you with ideas and expertise to get the project completed professionally.
We offer free consultation, straightforward sales, and a professional project management approach. Our goal is to first learn about how you would like to use your bath and gain an understanding of what style you would like. Then we strive to turn those ideas into a design that fits your budget.
We believe in accurate estimates, realistic solutions, and continuous communication. Many people have experienced a remodeling project that never seemed to end (think of Eldon the painter in the old show Murphy Brown) and resulted in countless delays and a torn-up home. Our goal is to provide an accurate estimation of the scope of the work (with a pre-job meeting to answer your questions), a realistic timeframe for the work, and reliable communication throughout the project. Open and honest communication is the key to a successful project.
We provide written and fair change orders. We recognize that during the process you may want to add some new features or upgrade materials. It is our goal to be transparent with those costs (through a written change order process) and to price these fairly.
High Quality Bathroom Products
We use innovative high-quality products and building solutions. Have you ever been told what you can't do by a remodeling contractor? Our goal is to provide you with innovative high-quality products (whether you want a digital programmable shower, an eco-friendly toilet, a radiant floor heating system, or a bathroom cabinet that looks like real furniture). We research or use products you've researched online or in publications to turn your vision into reality. We will not skimp with low-quality materials.
We work with products and designs for people of all abilities and sizes. Making spaces work for all members of your family (whether they are big or small or need a walker or wheelchair accessible shower) is easy when you use accessible, universal design and specialized products. We are familiar with constructing single-level wet room, barrier-free showers and walk-in tubs.
Hire A Qualified Bathroom Remodeling Contractor
Our staff is committed to improvement. Our design, project management, and customer service staff stay abreast of advances and are committed to developing their skills. Bathroom design trends, products, and building techniques are constantly progressing. In order to continuously learn and grow we need to read, research, and attend training programs to grow in our skills (a never-ending process).
Our staff provides a high-quality finished project, coordinating all tradesmen and suppliers. Bathroom remodeling and finishing often involve multiple trades (rough and finished carpentry, plumbing, heating, electrical, flooring, etc.) and many products (showers, tubs, cabinets, countertops, and flooring). We strive to take the hassle out of the process by having qualified people to do the work and dependable suppliers to get materials to the site on time.
Our Bath Remodel & Construction Philosophy
Structure and style are equally important. While a newly remodeled, stylish bathroom will get you "oohs" and "aahs" from neighbors and family, it's often the underlying quality of the subfloor, electrical wiring, shower wall board, and behind-the-wall plumbing that will make a project perform at a high level over time. We do not cut corners with structural materials.
Projects are personal – it's not just another job. When you award us a job, we understand that you've invited us to work in your home and that remodeling is a disruptive process. As guests, we need to be respectful of your property (keeping the space as neat and clean as possible), treat you like a member of our family, and keep you informed about any unexpected twists or turns. At the end of a job you may likely receive a follow-up call or a personal note from us, just to see how you're enjoying your remodeled bathroom.
Look for opportunities to improve the project during the construction process. Our field staff is continually looking at ways to improve the function and style of your bathroom during construction. If we see opportunities to improve on our initial design, we will communicate these to you. We are passionate about what we do and hope you love your finished project.
Attention to detail will make the difference. In remodeling, many of the products used are readily available. We believe that the difference in working with us will be in the project's details (craftsmanship) and the care our staff takes to deliver their best work.

Bathroom products- shower, tub, cabinets, sinks, and faucets
Choosing the right bath products can be a key element in having a functional and stylish finished space. Cleveland Design & Remodeling provides a listing and breif description of the main products used in many bathroom remodeling projects.
Fleurco corner shower stall
Showers. In many bath remodeling projects, the shower is getting larger at the expense of space formerly used by soaking or Jacuzzi tubs. Shower options can vary greatly, from enclosures with sliding or pivot doors; walk-in, barrier-free, or a wet room design; or a simple stand-up corner shower. Our staff will help you to make the best selection for your bathroom.
Tubs. Options in tubs are certainly expansive and include clawfoot, soaking, walk-in, jetted, deck-mounted, and freestanding tubs. We can help you to choose the best tub from a wide selection.
Cabinets. Contemporary cabinets and European designs are becoming more popular. Cherry and maple wood are still the most popular, but oak, birch, and bamboo are gaining popularity. Some of our cabinet lines include Kraftmaid, Merrillat, StarMark, and Saco Industries.
Countertops. Choosing the right countertops can add style, elegance, and improved function to your bathroom. Our choices include laminate, granite, solid surface, cultured marble, tile, and quartz from manufacturers like Silestone, Cambria, and Corian, to name a few.
Sinks. A distinctive sink can add a stylish touch. Some choices include vessel, wall-mounted, pedestal, under-mount, drop-in and glass sinks.
Flooring. In bathrooms you'll need flooring that is easy to clean and hygienic, stands up to water, and complements the rest of the design. Some popular material options include tile, laminate, solid treated wood, and various types of stone (include marble, granite, and limestone). Adding a radiant floor system has become a popular way to add comfort as well.
Lighting. The right lighting can improve safety, make it easier to shave and shower, and enhance the look of your bathroom. Consider using overhead lighting, a sconce around a mirror, can lights, or recessed lighting.
Bathroom and shower fixtures. The right faucet or showerhead can improve the function and style. We have many finishes to choose from (stainless steel, chrome, and brushed bronze, to name a few) from popular manufacturers including Kohler and Moen.

Bathroom Design Trends & Ideas
Maybe your bath doesn't embody the cool designs and safety features you've seen in magazines, on the Internet, or in model homes. You'll find listed below some of the top trends for this important room.
Sustainable eco-friendly materials and plumbing products. Reducing the use of water and incorporating long-lasting materials are top trends in bathroom design. Green products include low flush toilets, water-saving showerheads, tankless hybrid water heaters, and natural flooring materials.
Digital technology. Like the rest of the home, the bath is going high-tech. Some cool features include digital programmable showers (which come with preset comfort levels, Wi-Fi music connections, and wireless remotes) and TV screens that are mounted on mirrors.
Sleek, clean contemporary lines. Many traditional homes are using contemporary-looking bathrooms with features like hanging vanities, low-profile linear drains, and streamlined fixtures.
Barrier free shower enclosure
Eliminating soaking and jetted tubs in favor of larger showers. Many of the soaking tubs put into homes in the '80s and '90s are nothing but big dust collectors. A current trend in bathroom redesign and remodeling projects is replacing Jacuzzi tubs with large, walk-in showers.
Colors. Most people want to create a calm, relaxing bathroom space. This has resulted in greater use of lighter colors and water tones, such as light greens, airy blues, grays, and whites. The Pantone Color of the Year 2012 will be Tangerine Tango, which is perfect to use as an accent color in an otherwise serene bathroom.
Comfort and convenience. Radiant floor heat, towel warmers, and steam showers will make a bathroom more comfortable to use.
Floors with larger tiles. Bigger is in when it comes to bath floors and walls. Larger, European-designed tiles provide a more contemporary, clean look and minimize the number of grout joints as well.
Cabinetry that looks like furniture. Expect to see an increasing use of larger, more elegant cabinets and contemporary high-end frameless designs.
Countertops. Granite, quartz, and marble continue to be the three most popular surfaces.
Medicine cabinets. According to the 2012 National Kitchen and Bath Association Design Trends Survey, medicine cabinets are experiencing a resurgence in popularity. This traditional way to add storage and shelving in a small bath has seen some updates – some medical cabinet mirrors even incorporate TV screens.
Universal design bathroom
Universal design and accessible bathrooms. Wet surfaces can be hazardous and pose risks of slips and falls. Today we offer ways to make enhance safety in bathrooms without sacrificing style or function. Some common features of universal design include roll-under sinks, barrier-free showers, wet rooms, linear drains, slip-resistant low-maintenance floors, decorative grab bars, safety transfer tubs, and comfort height toilets.
