New York City Kitchen, Bathroom and full gut Remodeling
Listed below are the ten steps we follow on most kitchen, bathroom and complete gut remodeling projects. Of course each individual project is unique and this guide may change accordingly.
Step One: Initial Meeting
We will arrange to meet with you at your residence for your first consultation. During this meeting we will to discuss your project in detail. Together we will discuss your goals, your wish list and your budget in order to determine a scope of work. At this meeting we will take measurements of existing walls, floors and any obstacles.
Step Two: Budget
We will prepare a budget spreadsheet, which lists the scope of work in detail and itemizes all the different areas of construction such as demolition, plumbing, electrical, millwork, architectural and engineering services, permits etc. This spreadsheet will list total construction costs along with owner-supplied items and their costs. This will give you a better understanding of your total project and all the associated costs involved.
Step Three: Follow Up Meeting
We will meet again to confirm the measurements and the design and discuss the budget. We will work together on changes and agree to a final design that meets your expectations and needs.
Step Four: Choosing Materials
Once the design is finalized and we agree to the scope of work needed for your project we will help you choose the final fixtures and building materials including plumbing and electrical fixtures, cabinets, countertops, flooring, hardware and appliances. You may wish to use the services of a professional registered interior designer to help pick those final finishes. We have several designers we work with closely in NYC and can recommend one or we are happy to work with you directly or with your own designer. We work closely with several different quality cabinet manufacturers and can help guide you to the best manufacturer that suits your needs and budget.
These companies offer full custom options for cabinetry including custom sizes, soft close hardware, custom finishes and custom steel or glass panels. They also supply custom made book cases, fireplace mantles, radiator covers and wall units and can produce these in any wood type and color desired. We can match any existing wood and we can match any paint chip. Finishes can be painted, lacquered, stained or glazed.
Step Five: Contract
Once the final design, scope of work and budget is approved we will provide you with a formal contract for review. When the Contract is signed and a deposit check given we schedule an estimated date to start work and start preparing documents for the CO-OP board and/or management office.
Step Six: Getting Started
We will complete and submit all necessary documents including the signed contract, Liability insurance, Workers Compensation, permits, and licenses as needed by your building management office and the Department of Buildings and we will help facilitate any filings if needed.
The management office will review all the documents required within your alteration agreement and, for larger projects, they may require their own architect or engineer to review the scope of work and plans. After their review the building management will let you know that your project has been approved and we can schedule a date to start working.
Step Seven: Construction
Once construction starts, we manage all of our employees and subcontractors on a daily basis to ensure all work is completed in a timely and professional manner and in line with the scope of work and final design.
Step Eight: Constant Communication
We will provide frequent, often daily, updates to confirm work progress. Unforeseen circumstances inevitably occur during any construction project. We always do our very best to avoid any delays, but more importantly, we pride ourselves on proactive communication with our clients. We will update you immediately and we will find solutions that work for you. Any changes must be in writing and will be preceded by a written estimate and your approval and confirmation.
Step Nine: Project Completion
We will walk through your project with you to make sure you are satisfied and that everything is completed according to the original plan and design.

If your bathroom doesn’t offer you a feeling like it’s your sanctuary, then a bathroom remodel may be just what you need. The bathroom is where you begin your morning. It’s also the place where you can find peace after a long day as you clean up and wash away all the heavy stress after a day’s work. For some, it may even be the place to find inspiration during moments of calm.
When you invest in a bathroom remodel with professional bathroom remodeling contractors, it has long-term and short-term benefits to you as a homeowner. The bathroom is a big selling point when it comes time to resell the home, but while you’re still residing in it, allow yourself to start each morning anew and finish off each night relaxed to unwind for a restful night’s sleep.
Bathroom remodeling can come in all shapes, sizes, and budgets, but even the slightest bathroom renovation in NYC can make a world of a difference to the home. It can be as simple as changing fixtures, cabinetry, flooring, tiling, or paint color for the walls to an entire new bathroom design layout like converting the bath to a shower or having both in the same room for a sanctuary that is specific to your personal taste and needs.
With the professional services you receive from Ideal Home Renovations, the bathroom will soon become your favorite room in the home – a place you know you can come to relax and unwind every day.
