The tub surround is turquoise, and it isn’t the so-cool aqua that you pair with chocolate brown for a Pottery Barn bathroom. This one is turquoise, begging for bubblegum pink accents with seafoam green accessories. Granted, the whole thing is in great shape—no leaks, no scratches or dings, not even any mildew. And yet, you want to replace it, so you’re planning a bathroom renovation in Gaithersburg, MD.
With all the incredible examples of fine art in Washington, D.C., just around the corner, you would have thought that some of those aesthetics would have dribbled across state lines during the last home renovations that included your current residence. But no, yours was a place where all the worst of the then-current trends were adopted, down to the orange shag carpet that did manage to mildew in this bathroom you’re now prepared to gut to the studs. In this room, the only thing missing is the glass block wall or window (old-style glass block, that is). The only thing you can figure there is that they either ran out of money or ran out of time before the fashions changed. Either way, you’re thankful to not have to deal with glass block on top of everything else, especially since you’ve had to wait a few years for this bathroom renovation.
Now that you’re finally ready to get started, be sure you don’t cut corners. In the long run, you probably won’t save either the time or the money that you expect. With all the appliances, fixtures, rough materials, and flooring, not to mention the codes to juggle (construction, electrical, and plumbing, for starters) with bathroom remodels in Gaithersburg, it can only help to have experienced help on your side. Besides their access to all kinds of sources for materials, that voice of experience may be a literal lifesaver, anywhere from the planning stages, to that unexpected wire you find during the demolition, to the installation of the last fixture.
