Who ya gonna call?
November 25, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I have master bath that really needs a total gut and redo, including raising the floor and possibly ceiling and roof. The bathroom was added on by previous owners in the 60-70's. They put it on top of a concrete patio and turned large den into master suite. There is a step down into room but it is a larger step down than standard and the ceilinf and roof are also lower.

The room is slightly larger than they standard bathroom also so I think we could reconfigure where things are placed.

So to do all of this, who do I call first, a designer or contractor? I can pick my finishes and whatnot without a designer but the configuration I need help with.

A designer would be able to narrow down some layout options before finding contractors to bid on the project.

A design/build firm can assist you with the design as they will know the relative cost of various options before you get married into one particular plan.

You could use a concept planner http://www.houzz.com/pro/oneplan/oneplan

If you are only changing finishes and moving fixtures around, I'd suggest a designer with NKBA experience. If you are making structural changes such as raising the floor and roof lines, I'd suggest an architect who specializes in residential remodeling; they will have knowledge of local codes and will coordinate all spheres of work from engineering to finishes.
