Our Process

Because we specialize in bathroom renovations and remodeling, we’re experts in the field. We’ve parlayed our expertise into a signature 5-Step Process. Our highly detailed, systematic bathroom remodeling process is meant to ensure that each bathroom renovation goes as smoothly as possible, and that we deliver the high-quality products and craftsmanship clients have come to expect from The Bath Shop.

Our Design Process

Our 5-Step Design Process is intended to give a sweeping view of the many moving parts involved in a full-scale renovation. At The Bath Shop, we’re proud of our proven track record for timeliness, professionalism, and exceeding client expectations. Bear in mind, however, that every project is unique; some are finished quickly and some take longer due to weather, unexpected subfloor or framing rot, order changes, or countertop and glass fabrications, among other variables.
