While the design of a kitchen and bathroom might look very different, the processes of creating their designs are not so different after all! Whether you are looking to add more storage, customize the space to your family’s specific needs, update the layout, or create the perfect modern aesthetic, we are here to bring your dreams to life. The Dream Home Construction team has streamlined the potentially chaotic and confusing process of remodeling into one that is smooth and simple. Read on for a sneak peek of what our process of creating a perfect, customized space looks like!
So, what can you expect from the Dream Home Construction kitchen and bath remodel experience?
You’ll begin with an at-home presentation
We provide a free at-home consultation to kick off your renovation process. Together, we will go through your vision, desired layout, aesthetic, colors, and other basic design ideas during this meeting. We provide complimentary expert advice but come to this meeting with all of your big ideas. Consider this an epic brainstorming session!
The design is created
After the initial consultation, you will meet with one of Dream Home Construction’s skilled designers to nail down the project plans. At this meeting, we will provide you with a mood board, go over the color selection, and begin to finalize what your new space will really look like. This is the step where most of the significant tweaks and changes occur. And say goodbye to imagining what everything will look like because you’ll receive a 3D rendition of your new space!

Choose cabinetry style, color, and features
Now that the ideas, themes, and layout have been decided, it is time to start selecting your materials. This is one of our favorite parts of the process– after all, the details make the design! Choosing cabinetry is an integral part of the process because each future material decision is layered upon the last to ensure every surface is visually complementary.
You have three options when it comes to cabinetry: all have high quality, plywood construction, but differ in the level of customization.
Stock: The most basic option offers a budget-friendly way to achieve a beautiful and functional space. There are a variety of stock cabinets around but they come in set sizes and colors and have limited features. They also often require space fillers to fit the dimensions of your room.
Semi-custom: These cabinets offer almost endless choices. Semi-custom cabinets provide increased color, feature, and size options but still utilize space fillers. If you are looking for a fully custom option, whether you want to match your family’s unique storage needs or have a specific color in mind, the next step up is your best option.
Custom: These are the best choice for a fully customized space because at this level, we can customize every color, space, corner, height, and feature to fit your dream design perfectly. These cabinets do not utilize space fillers and custom built to the size of the space and provide the most seamless and custom look.

Select appliances to fit your functional needs and aesthetic goals
A kitchen’s primary function is preparing and cooking delicious meals. A bathroom’s primary function is, well, you know! But selecting the right appliances can upgrade functional to luxurious. This makes selecting the right appliances an essential part of the design process — these spaces have to work for you.
There are two main questions to ask yourself while selecting your kitchen or bathroom appliances and fixtures: do they fit your dream layout, and is it the best fit for your lifestyle?

Choose countertop material to complement cabinetry and appliances
Countertops are high-traffic areas, so durability and functionality are crucial. Kids spill drinks and husbands “forget” to use cutting boards. Our expert designers will help you find the perfect recipe for aesthetics and function.
Similar to our cabinet selection, countertop options are dependent on your budget and customization goals. If stock countertops fit your budget, you can expect between 10-15 slab options. If custom-made is your desire, there are increased options for shape, design, material, and color.

Come visit our showroom and select your backsplash
The design continues to layer, with each decision complimenting the last and one of our final steps is selecting your backsplash. Typically backsplashes are comprised of either tile or stone. But they can also be made from the same material as your countertop to create a seamless look. Whatever your preference, during this step, we will invite you to our expansive showroom to explore the material options and find the perfect tile to compliment your cabinetry, appliances, and countertops. With our experienced designers’ help, you will choose the material, style, color, and grout best fit to your project.
Can you spot the backsplash design in the picture below? Utilizing the same material for countertops and backsplashes has been a popular choice!

Choose durable and beautiful flooring
With almost all the details in place, the final step is the flooring. Since kitchens and bathrooms are naturally high-traffic areas, it is essential to select a durable floor that can stand up to spills, dirt, and scratches 24/7!
If you currently have a hardwood floor, the first decision you will make with our designers is if you wish to refinish the existing floor. If so, we can help you find the perfect stain and seal for the design. If you are replacing the floor entirely, it is now time to decide between hardwood, high-quality composite, vinyl, or tile.
And as with every step before, we will work with you to discover the best flooring to fit your functional and aesthetic goals.
