About Us

All Bathroom Remodelers are NOT The Same.

If you want a properly-designed and-built bathroom, it’s critical to work with a specialist who builds a lot of bathrooms and knows how to build them well.  Highly-experienced specialists will have deeper knowledge and expertise they can bring to bear on your project, ultimately saving you time, hassle, and money.

It’s also important to evaluate potential contractors on vital competencies such as communication, transparency, design capability, and project management skills.

As you might have imagined, Houston remodelers stack up very differently in these areas.

Here are a few important reasons to work with us:


If you’ve ever experienced the stress of a bad remodel, you’ll never want to go through it again.  The truth is, many remodelers aren’t very good at the actual thing they’re supposed to be good at: building and managing your project.  Of course, they’ll never tell you this up front.  Most will simply say “everything is going to be fine.”

With Simplicity, you won’t have to worry about a stressful, poorly-planned, or badly-executed remodel.  We thoughtfully plan and coordinate your project before construction begins with our proprietary, point-by-point “Design-To-Build SOP” (Standard Operating Procedures), to ensure your bathroom will be completed on-time and on-spec, before your project ever begins.

Our teams will begin your remodel with a clear plan of action, and never show up unannounced.  You will not need to manage the work yourself, as we will carefully oversee your project all the way through to completion via in-house construction management.  You can expect thorough dust control measures, daily clean-ups, and no trash left in your home or yard.  All of our preparatory and project management efforts are designed to minimize YOUR hassle, stress, and lifestyle disruption.


All Simplicity clients work directly with our owner and resident bathroom expert, Brian Horton.  Brian has a master’s degree and more than twenty years’ experience in construction, and has built and managed hundreds of bathroom remodels since founding Simplicity in 2014.

Unfortunately, most companies force you to work with their salespeople, which leads to disconnects between what you’re promised and what actually happens.  This is because salespeople aren’t experts at building – they’re experts at influencing people.

We won’t make you sit through an iPad presentation (AKA “no pressure in-home quote”) to get a price or other details.  Instead, we offer a pricing guide right here on our website, to help you budget appropriately.  We’re also happy to discuss your custom project by phone, before you decide to meet with us.  When we get together on-site, pricing and scope options are straightforward, and you won’t have to haggle.

WHY would you do this any other way?


Your bathroom renovation is a major investment, and you’re trusting us to take care of you.  As with any major investment, most people rightly expect the party they’re doing business with to communicate regularly and be available for questions, concerns, and updates.  This seems like a basic, common sense thing, right?

Unfortunately, poor communication is pervasive throughout the building industry.  In fact, lack of communication is the #1 most serious problem reported in working with builders (and by extension, contractors and remodelers, as well).  To make matters worse, it typically comes in a package deal with its ugly brethren: miscommunication, misinformation, and lack of transparency.  If you’ve ever experienced avoidable problems, issues, and stress due to shoddy communication, you know how absolutely infuriating it can be!

As our client, we will communicate frequently with you via call and text, keeping you in the loop and abreast of our progress.  You’ll never have to worry about us “going dark” or ignoring your contact – period.  At Simplicity, we even go one step further by giving each and every client the company owner’s personal cell number.


As a homegrown Texas company, we love our state and its values, and relish the opportunity to serve our fellow Houstonians.  Our clients benefit from the financial stability and staying power of a large company, but receive the quality, customer service, and individual attention of a smaller enterprise.  No client will ever be just a number.

We’ve put a ton of up-front information right here on our site to help you plan appropriately for your bath remodel before you ever pick up the phone.  When you reach out to us, we’ll treat you with respect and shoot you straight regardless of your project’s size, and without pretense or nonsense.  If we can’t help you, we will let you know politely, and try to point you in the right direction.

As your neighbor, our first and only goal is to honor God by serving you properly.


You can’t be an expert at everything.  We are custom bathroom builders, and that’s where we hang our hats.

Since 2014, we’ve built many high-quality, technically-superior bathrooms and showers to meet the unique needs of the families we’ve served.  Our niche focus means we bring more expertise to bear on your project, resulting in better detail management and a smoother, more consistent experience than working with a general contractor, home improvement company, or bath franchise.


Ever had that “icky” feeling that the workers in your home are unhappy and underpaid?

We won’t put you through this.  Instead, we utilize a stringent hiring and evaluation process that ensures we only work with the top 5% of carpenters, tile setters, and other tradespeople in the industry, and we pay wages that reward our workmen for their efforts.  Our teams have been experts in their trades for years, and they have our respect and appreciation.

In return, you get a job well-done, without having to worry about underqualified, inexperienced installers working in your home.

This isn’t revolutionary stuff, but most contractors simply don’t operate this way.  Instead, they take the antagonistic approach of negotiating hard with their employees and subcontractors, or even picking up help from the Home Depot parking lot, so they can minimize labor costs.  The reason they do this, of course, is to win more jobs at lower prices.  While this might sound good on paper or in an office setting, in reality this practice leads to many problems that can derail or destroy your remodel, and you’d be wise to avoid contractors who operate this way.

Ultimately, we believe that folks who work with their hands and earn their living by the sweat of their brow should be able to support their families and not get squeezed to death by white-collar business owners.

We call our cooperative approach “Fair Trade Remodeling.”

This is a business you can trust!”-K. Irwin
