Bathroom Designers vs Sales People

If you’re looking to remodel your bathroom or build a sunroom, you’re going to want to invest a lot of time choosing your bathroom remodeling company, and in most cases, those companies will send sales reps over to your home to give you a pitch. Homestead Remodeling and Consulting, on the other hand, sends over bathroom and sunroom designers for a free consultation!

What Does a Designer Do vs a Sales Representative?

When you’re looking for the most efficient and effective way to design a bathroom or a sunroom, you’ll want a designer by your side (hence the title Designer). Unlike traditional salespeople, designers won’t hound you down for a sale and instead go above and beyond the initial financial transaction.

They understand how to manage the entire scope of the project you have in mind. In other words, they won’t sell you materials and let you deal with surprising installation costs. They’ll help you see hidden or unexpected costs that factor into the equation.

Salespeople are there to make the sale — but not to help you beyond that. While they might be able to convince you that a particular fixture or cabinet is a good choice, that’s it. They won’t necessarily know how to integrate it into the rest of your bathroom design.

And salespeople won’t know the best contractors to install what you buy. A good designer, on the other hand, will know a lot about the remodeling industry and have contacts within it.

Ultimately, designers are focused on working with you long-term. 

Get Input on Design Ideas

A designer can help you put your dreams into words. And if you’re really at a loss, they can show you a gallery of options to help guide your aesthetic decisions.

For instance, you might be mulling over a muted style versus a showier bathroom space. Designers can help you weave in pops of color through a backsplash or ceramic tiles on the floor. Adding too much color in a small space can make it overwhelming, and a good designer will know when to stop.

For larger spaces, a designer can advise on where to place a bath to make it the showpiece of the room. They also can advise on storage strategies if you’re working with a smaller space. That way, you won’t end up with a crowded space — but it will be functional.

Always remember that the right bathroom remodel can increase the overall value of your home. A designer can help you steer clear of dated design choices or options that might not hold universal appeal. If you’re planning to sell your home any time soon, you want to keep your visual choices fresh and appealing.

Save Time with Project Coordination

Taking on a bathroom remodel or sunroom build can sound like a daunting project. That’s especially true when you’re already busy juggling jobs and family responsibilities.

A designer can coordinate all aspects of the job and design. They can articulate your design wishes to floor installers. And above all, they can ensure you’re getting the quality you deserve.

Getting work done on any part of your home can be stressful. When you’re not sure which vendors or installation teams to choose, designers will cut out the investigation time by handling the process for you. And they’ll know the best places to compromise so you can contain your project costs.

Turn to Designers 

Using designers during the remodeling process will set you up for better results. You’ll gain access to a trained professional with industry knowledge and a strong design sensibility. And you’ll be able to stay within your budget without losing quality in the finished product.
