I'm sure I'm not the only person in the world who absolutely hates the thought of home renovations. We haven't touched our bathroom since we moved into our place ten years ago. And while we've done simple renovations in almost every other room, the bathroom has remained a burgundy nightmare.
After spending a good part of last year at home, we vowed to finally do something about it. We began researching everything from contractors, to what kind of permits we'd need. The whole process was taking up so much of my time it was stressing me out. After reading through one of my favorite interior design blogs, I stumbled across Block Renovation.
After a little more digging, I saw that Block is a service that helps with the entire process of renovating your bathroom or kitchen. Having someone else help with all of the madness sounded great, but I was sure it would be super expensive, and I'm sure I'd have to still do most of the organizing. Since Block offers a free online quote, my husband and I decided to check it out. I was pretty surprised to learn a couple of things.
Clear estimate, fast! After we quickly inputted our details online (what type of room, kind of building, square footage, etc.), we spoke to a Block project planner and received an estimate shortly after.
After sending images of our space, we worked with a hands-on project planner that conducted a site survey to get a better idea of what needed to be done, including permits and co-op board approval. (icon could be measuring tape)
We worked with a designer that created 3D renderings of our new bathroom so that we would know exactly what it would look like before making a decision. Picking the tiles and fixtures was so creative and fun!
We broke ground much quicker than expected. The Block team handled everything, from coordinating deliveries of materials to setting us up with a vetted, certified general contractor.
It was way more affordable than we ever expected, plus not having to coordinate the whole redesign ourselves saved us tons of time and headaches.
Block Renovation made the entire process as pain-free as possible, and their vetted contractors were real pros. They were a pleasure to deal with, paid attention to fine details, and worked efficiently. I never thought getting a new bathroom could be so simple to get done!
