Your Dream Bathroom Remodel Starts Here
A fresh start is a beautiful thing! Especially when it comes to a bathroom remodel. Whether you’re looking to make a few small changes or planning a major overhaul, it’s an exciting step. But where do you begin?
First, do a little brainstorming. Grab a pen and paper and jot down notes about your dream bathroom. What would you change about your current bathroom? Detail the different elements that would make you feel more comfortable in the space. Also, what could make the space appealing to potential buyers in the future?
As you brainstorm, consider the different elements of a bathroom that typically need remodeling. Don’t leave anything out during your initial brainstorming session. These elements may include:
- Upgraded features like steam showers or heated floors
At MLM Incorporated, we use only the best products during a bathroom remodel. We also aim to offer more of an experience than a service for our customers. Since we work on homes in southern Louisiana, we always use traditional tiles and authentic materials that align with the look and age of your home.

How much does a bathroom remodel cost?
Everyone’s budget is different, which is why we understand the importance of knowing how much your bathroom remodel will cost. This depends on several factors and important decisions you’ll make along the way.
According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, the majority of your budget will go towards cabinetry and hardware, fixtures, and faucets and plumbing. In general, if you maintain the layout of your current bathroom, it can help you save money. Relocations of plumbing often have the biggest impact on bathroom remodel costs.
If you are unable to pay for your bathroom renovation upfront, we also offer convenient financing opportunities at MLM Incorporated. This allows you to spread out your payments over an extended period. Options include financing with no fees for up to 12 months, as well as low down payments with no prepayment penalties for loans of up to $45,000.
How long does a bathroom remodel take?
Your timeline is another important aspect of your project. Whether it’s a small bathroom remodel or a large-scale project, it should be done in a timely manner. But, just like building a house, every project is different. As always, be open and honest about your expectations. If you’re looking to meet a certain deadline, let us know in the beginning.
Fortunately, coming up with a solid plan beforehand can greatly reduce your overall timeline. When you work with bathroom remodeling contractors like MLM, you’ll receive a detailed outline of each phase of the process. While every bathroom remodel is unique, most will be completed within one month. However, this depends on the nature of the remodel, as well as other ongoing projects.
It’s sometimes necessary to make a few changes along the way but do know that ongoing adjustments can mean a longer build-time. These updates don’t only impact the need for additional rework. They can also cause delays if you’re ordering specialty pieces.
How We Help at MLM Incorporated
While it may seem fun at first to embark on a DIY renovation, there are certain elements of a remodel that should be left to a licensed contractor. When you work with MLM Incorporated, you’re paying for peace of mind.
You can feel confident that your project will be handled with care from start to finish, no matter how complicated. The finished bathroom will be done safely, with flawless craftsmanship. Here are the major areas of a bathroom remodel that we can help you with.
Demolition or structural changes
Are you hoping to change the layout of your bathroom? For example, perhaps you’d like your toilet or shower in a different area of the space. This type of bathroom update calls for structural changes, which can be done, but requires expertise and experience.
Most structural changes to a bathroom also require permits and inspections. This is critical to maintain both the safety and resale value of your home. Our team can advise you on the feasibility of such changes, as well as how it will affect your budget.
Plumbing and pipes
If you’re making structural changes, this will usually require major plumbing modifications.
In a situation where pipes are being moved, it could lead to a hidden leak or future water damage. A licensed professional will know how to avoid making these errors, which saves you money in the long run.
As experienced bathroom remodeling contractors, we will bring a licensed electrician in to complete any rewiring work. This is essential to ensure the safety of your renovation as bathrooms require water and electrical wiring to be in close proximity.
During this phase of a bathroom remodel, we will determine the necessary steps to install light fixtures, power outlets, and recessed lighting as well. As a homeowner, we want you to feel confident that your bathroom is both beautiful and safe.
In addition to the structural work and essential underlying elements of a bathroom renovation, we can take your bathroom design to the next level with other upgrades and features. This may include:
- Laying floor tile
- Sloping the shower drain
- Installing a bathroom vanity
- Adding shower doors and tile
- Installing faucets, light fixtures, and recessed lighting
- Upgrading bathroom features
- Creating storage spaces
As with many other elements of your bathroom remodel, these installations require precision and accuracy. Our team will make sure it is done right the first time.
Can’t find exactly what you had in mind? We can also complete custom work to ensure your bathroom is the perfect fit for your design preferences and lifestyle.
