ROOM PERFECTION

POWDER ROOM PERFECTION

Home remodeling contractors in Las Vegas will concur that designing the powder room can be one of the most enjoyable spaces to create for the home. It’s a given that having a powder room increases the value of the home, so if you currently don’t have a powder room it would be a project to put high on your home renovation list. But the main reason is simply that people want a bathroom that is convenient for their guests to use.  Having a powder room eliminates your guests having to wander around to a different floor or to another part of the house far away from the gathering spot. Your full bathrooms used on a daily basis may not be as tidy as you intend for them to be, where a powder room can always stay tidy and your privacy with your main bathrooms will not be compromised. If your lifestyle includes entertaining frequently, then a powder room is the perfect plan. They can also be a wonderful way to show off your own personal style, since a powder room doesn’t necessarily have to follow the same theme as the rest of your home.  As your general contractor in Las Vegas, GI Construction will make sure that your powder room creation will be a huge success!

Powder Room Creation

LOCATION
No matter where you decide your powder room will be, there are things to discuss with your bathroom contractor in Las Vegas during your initial planning. The powder room doesn’t have to be large, so you should be able to find a nice spot in your home without sacrificing too much space. A typical powder room is approximately 20 SF of space, however some can be as small as 11 SF. (your project manager should clarify these dimensions with the local building department since they tend to change each year)  If your powder room will be used mainly by guests, then be sure to choose a spot that is convenient from the area where you mostly entertain. The location of your powder room is crucial to your guests’ comfort and your home’s resale value. Some ideal spots are under the staircase or a large closet near the entrance. However if you have young children, you might choose day-to-day convenience for your family over occasional guests’ comfort and locate your powder room near the laundry room area.  Keep in mind that besides the room’s location, powder rooms need to be either adjacent or near plumbing lines so you can use the existing water and waste system. Many homeowners prefer to have the location where enter and exit of the powder room has some degree of privacy. If the location can be somewhere that is not directly in sight of the gathering spot, this will be a bonus so that guests can visit the powder room discreetly.
SPACE
After determining the location and dimensions of your powder room, you will need to decide all the elements needed to fit into the space.  The minimum requirements for a powder room are sink, toilet and mirror, as well as allowing for a 32-inch door opening. It is best if the door swings inward to avoid traffic flow on the outside, however if the space is small, the door may have to swing out. For smaller powder rooms, you may consider a sliding pocket door. You can also save space by using a round vs. oval toilet. Pedestal, console or wall mounted sinks are preferable for taking up less space. There are some wonderful storage ideas for powder rooms to keep extra tissue, hand towels soap etc. while keeping space in mind.
LAYOUT
Powder rooms can have several different layout options depending on the shape of your room, but the most common layout is having the toilet and sink against one wall where plumbing and waste lines can be shared.  The door opening to display the sink is also preferred to be the room’s focal point.
SOUND INSULATION
Sound insulation is important in every bathroom, but most important in a powder room near living room/dining room areas or where you are entertaining. Discuss options with your home remodeling contractor so that you can insulate your powder room where every aspect of privacy is achieved.  
PERSONAL TASTE
After all the basic requirements for a powder room have been met, it is time to think about choice and style. First off, there is no reason to choose an unimaginative style sink–especially when it is often the focal point of the powder room. If your powder room isn’t used on a daily basis, wear and tear will be minimal; therefore, choosing something stylish over durability is perfectly acceptable.  Adding furniture such as a mini book shelf, magazine rack, or a couple wall shelves will give you a chance to display personal touches. Your vanity base and counter is another way to show off your creativity and personal taste. Both paint and wallpaper are popular for powder rooms, and keep in mind that even the most pricey items are affordable with limited space to work with. If you are choosing paint, you may also think about adding wainscoting to dress up the room even more. Same goes for flooring; you’re working with a small area, so get what you really want without worrying about prices being too high. Aside from the sink being a focal point, the mirror you choose can also tie the whole room together. Choose a decorative mirror with a unique frame that stands out and  shows off your powder room masterpiece. A tile backsplash is a lovely way to accent, and since you’ll need less tile–you can pop for the one-of-a-kind designer version you’ve always wanted! Your personal choice of faucet is also an important accent to go with your sink of choice. Wall-mounts, single handle, high arc or waterfall are some of the options. Faucet finish is another consideration to be decided upon. Lighting your powder room to create a soft ambience for your guests is important, however dimmer switches are best so that guests can have the option of more light when touching up makeup etc. Finally, choosing your accessories–such as towel bars or rings, photo frames/art, candles, soaps,
hand towels, plant or flower vase, perfume tray—all adds to making your powder room a complete success!

Bathroom remodeling in Las Vegas is an exciting project. GI Construction is ready to help you create the perfect powder room that will benefit the whole family, impress your guests, and ultimately increase the value of your home!

GI Construction - January 2024 I do not give 5 star ratings – As a process improvement professional, there is always room for improvement. 4 star is fabulous, but since this is an algorism I will deviate from my norm. In 2021 I had gone out to bid, only to find out that most construction and supply houses had prices that I found to be unacceptable. Products such as shower heads, faucets and cabinets were priced extremely high, they were also hard to get. So, we put this on hold and did smaller projects; outdoors, flooring, kitchen, etc. to show you we were getting introduced to construction projects. In October 2023, we went out to bid on renovating our 30-year-old, 2.5 bathrooms in Las Vegas. I reviewed many companies and found 3 that were reviewed well and had no issues with the board of contractors. After review of their costs and discussing how they would work the project, we decided on GI. They started the work when we had purchased all the materials that we needed to purchase, (shower heads, cabinets, basins, tile for the showers and floors, etc. They started their day at 7 am and worked to 3 PM. They take pride in the work and make sure it is done correctly. As an example, Jose (one of the tile guys) did the main bathroom shower and flooring. He worked his artistry in making it extremely beautiful. He would cut a piece for one of the benches, use it on top and take the other piece he just cut and place it in front, so it was a continuation. He did this on each of the benches and step over in the entrance. Just look closely at the main shower enclosure and you will see the quality. Problems yes! We were phasing in the project the main bathroom and ½ bath first, then the guest bathroom. After the main bathroom was completed, I turned on the hot water in the glass vessels we had picked out. I was waiting for the water in the shower to get warm. I turned around and saw the water was hot going into the vessel, so I turned it off – I thermal shocked the glass, it broke, fell to the floor, chipped the new tile and generally made things a mess! I called the team manager (Valentin) and told him what had happened, his response was “No problem - We’ll take care of it.” So, I reordered the glass vessels and got them re-installed. The tile I repaired with a chip kit I had used when we had redone the tile the prior year. The other issue we encountered was we lived in the home during the construction. Dust everywhere and constantly cleaning to keep the house livable. The bottom line to me is the quality of the people that are doing the work and their dedication to the customer’s complete satisfaction is one of the things that made this less arduous. The entire project took 7 weeks; 2 weeks delay due to our buying the wrong products and having to find replacement products. The GI team worked with us, guiding us to right suppliers and helping wherever they could. I will put pictures of GI Construction’s finished work and during the project. Hopefully you will be able to tell their quality. Just a side note: Valentin and his teams kept this project going Monday thru Friday. They don’t work on the weekends, but pulled a half day on Saturday a couple of times to meet my schedule. I can’t say enough of Valentin’s professionalism! The customer is always in the forefront of his mind, making them feel good, lowering their anxiety about the project.

We reached out to GI Construction to do some work for our bathroom remodel and could not be happier with our experience. They were professional from start to finish, always on time, answered any questions I had throughout the project, and just did a great job overall. During our planning stage Isaac really took his time to ensure that the work they were doing was going to be both functional and practical. Both he and Valentin wanted to make sure that they were giving us the best possible product and went over every possible design to help us choose the best one for our needs. In a time where good, trustworthy contractors are hard to find, GI Construction sets a standard that should be held across the industry. Thank you GI Construction for all your work, it was worth every penny!

We hired GI construction to take over a small bathroom remodel of a shower. The first contractor we hired did a horrible job, we lost money and had to terminate his services in the middle of tiling. Issac the owner and Valentin the project supervisor met with us and went over everything step by step giving us confidence that the nightmare construction would be turned around. So glad we chose GI construction, our walk in shower turned out beautifully! Long story short, don’t cheap out, go with a professional! My husband and I would use GI construction again. We love our new shower! Services performed: shower remodel

We really wanted to have our master bathroom reconfigured to accommodate a nice walk-in shower and have an old jetted tub removed. After contacting several companies with little to undesirable responses we contacted GI Construction. Isaac responded to our house the very next day and observed what we envisioned. He was vey knowledgeable and forthright in his assessment of our project. We contracted with GI Construction and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Valentin and Roberto came to the house to establish a plan for construction and a timeline. Roberto was a true craftsman and insured every aspect of our construction was done with strict precision. The walk-in shower and associated construction was done in a timely manner and with ultimate concern for our pleasure and acceptance. If you are looking for a "professional contractor" to do your construction project look no further than GI Construction - you won't be disappointed. We would highly recommend them for any project you may encounter. Thank You GI Construction for providing us with a beautiful and functional master bath !!

After searching and obtaining many bids from different construction companies, Isaac with GI Construction provided us with a low cost, complete and solid option that did not hide or leave open any unknown fees. There methods of a simple TI were perfect for our needs as well as saving us thousands on unneeded expenses. I'd personally recommend GI for any project small or big.

My project manager Valentin was so helpful and very responsive with any issues. Foreman Jorge went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with all the finish work and he and his crew stayed late on a Friday to finish the job. They even moved my very large headboard back in from the garage. All workers were professional and polite. I would definitely recommend this company and will be using in the future.

We worked with Isaac, the owner and Valentin, the project manager and their amazing crew. We couldn't be happier with the end project! We had a water leak from an upstairs tenant so the whole bathroom had to be redone and a wall in the bedroom on the other side plus we had some plumbing and wiring done as well. I would love to leave a picture but couldn't see where to add it.
