At one time bath and shower designs were fairly basic and simple. However, now these necessities have evolved from a place to just get clean, to a spa-like or energy-induced experience. There are so many decisions to make for the homeowner: From garden-style bathtubs to Japanese-style soaking tubs, and showers that can have custom built-ins and seats to full water spout or shower sprays from all angles. It's a bit overwhelming. At RPD we can help you in this decision process and guide you to the selections that meet your needs.

We are capable to install any lighting or mirrors in the bathroom: ceiling drop-downs, ceiling canister lighting, under and around cabinets (even in the tiles!), or any other fixtures that suit your style. Mirrors are often changed out in the remodel process, especially when cabinets and vanities are moved or modified. There is a wide variety to choose from for both options.
No longer are bathroom sinks just a basic necessity. In recent years they are also becoming a focal point, that compliments the rest of the room’s design. The bathroom sink is a vital part of any modernization. It can form the unifying point of the bathroom and has the ability to add a touch of class. Usually, you'll find the sink, fixtures and towel holders tend to follow a similar style to add balance to the more focal points of the larger areas.
One of the best ways to get a great deal of impact for a relatively low investment is to do a bathroom cabinet upgrade to enhance and update the look of your bathroom. Over the years, many homeowners have discovered that they have been able to realize significant increases in the value in their home when they focus on making their bathroom look as appealing as possible.
If you're not considering replacing your cabinets, perhaps you'd like to have them refinished. Painting or staining your cabinets are also options which have a vast amount of experience and knowledge. Check out our Interior Painting page for some tips and photos of some completed projects.
Stone counter tops are both beautiful and durable. They need only a little routine care and forethought to ward off water marks, stains, and etching typically caused by acidic products. But even if the worst happens—a chipped edge, a red wine spill—most stones can be restored by a professional. The Pros: distinctive, durable, virtually seamless, low maintenance, repairable, and impervious to water. The Cons: high cost, brittle, some are stain-prone (Travertine, limestone, and marble blemish easily if not periodically sealed).
These man-made materials can mimic the look of stone—even rare, prohibitively pricey ones like lapis or onyx. These are “Solid Surfacing”: These have moldable resins and special glues which allow for a truly seamless counter, complete with an integrated sink. They are nonporous; food can't etch it, stains are easy to remove, sealers aren't required. Hot pans can scorch or crack it; knives can nick it. Concrete counter tops are poured to the color and shape of your choice: Site-poured counters can be seamless; sensitive to acids and requires frequent sealing. Engineered Stone is a factory-made mix of 93 percent quartz granules held together with a resin binder, engineered slabs are impervious to acids and stains, however, very hot pots may cause superficial damage.
Your choices for flooring are: Tile (the most popular choice), Stone,and Linoleum. The bathrooms are one of the wettest rooms in the home and the one where you are most often found without footwear, so comfortable and water-resistant floors are a must. A compelling option is to consider installing heating under your tile floor. While more costly than simply putting in new tile, it is an addition that many homeowners are most pleased they did.
Start your search for the perfect bathroom flooring by considering these five key factors: Lifestyle; Your Sense of Style; Comfort; Ease of Cleaning; and Cost. Talk to your RPD design specialist during the estimate process for help in making the right selection for you.
Remodeling a bathroom requires several differently skilled trades’ people. When RPD is on the job, you can rest assured that no matter how many craftsmen are called for, each one of them is highly qualified and professional.
What you want in your newly designed bathroom can be as diverse as a new wardrobe: it depends on your style, needs and budget. Today's homeowners are spending more time in, and money on, their master baths, so it is no surprise that they are one of the most highly regarded amenities in the home. No longer a strictly utilitarian room, master baths are becoming a personal retreat to rev up for the day's start or wind down at the day's end.
Every bathroom project we improve on is suited to meet the needs of the home owner. Our Master baths can feature cozy whirlpool tubs with sconces for mood lighting and interior windows for passing light. Master baths can show off windows and high ceilings. Guest baths oftentimes sport traditional tile designs. Upgrading to a luxurious master bath is more than a selling point for today's homeowners, it is a necessity. However, whether looking at selling or updating your home, every bathroom needs to be considered for style and convenience.
