In this week’s "Floorplan", OpenHouse New York host George Oliphant checks in with the experts at New York Kitchen and Bath. George gets virtuoso advice for remodeling your bathroom within any budget and with any design. George consults with Alison Swindler and Tommy Mitilineos at NYKB for design options, cost structure, and possible construction issues to consider before breaking ground in your W.C.
Field manager Tommy Mitilineos warns of the major construction issues to consider before any renovation. Tommy’s issues include dust, loss of facilities, and length of construction.
George also gets the lowdown from Ali on budget and design. She explains that plumbing fixtures, floor and wall coverings, accessories and construction are the greatest factors influencing budget and explains what different design options mean.
According to Ali, there are three main types of design: traditional, contemporary, and transitional.
- Natural stone tile
- Borders, mosaics
- Brushed nickel fixtures
- Porcelain tile
- Chrome fixtures
- Cast iron appliances
- Fuse traditional accents with modern fixtures
