It’s a given that bathrooms are one of the most popular spaces in our homes. In fact, according to the National Association of Home Builders, bathrooms are expected to be the most requested feature in new homes. These spaces need to be functional and beautiful at the same time, and it’s hard to do both without a little planning and effort. Read this blog to learn how to transform your bathroom with style and functionality.
Designing your bathroom
Factors to consider when designing a bathroom include the size, shape, and layout of the space, the function of the bathroom, and the desired style.
Choosing a material
Materials to consider for a bathroom renovation include limestone, granite, marble, soapstone, a variety of wood species, bronze, ironstone, terrazzo, and concrete.
Planning for storage
The bathroom storage should be plentiful and placed in locations that are convenient for their intended purpose. Bathrooms can include free-standing or built-in closets with shelving or other built-in storage solutions.
A variety of options are available when selecting fixtures for your bathroom. Options include wall-mounted sinks, corner sinks, vessel sinks, double sinks with troughs, and claw foot tubs.
Tile is an affordable way to give your bathroom a more luxurious feel. It can be customized to match your taste, and it’s easy to maintain.
A vessel or pedestal sink will make your small or narrow bathroom feel larger.
A large showerhead will make you more comfortable in your shower. There are also different spray settings that can provide a more relaxing bathing experience.
Consider installing a smaller tub for occasional use or remodel your current tub with a deep soaking option.
Preparing to plan
It is imperative that you maintain a list of ideas, inspirations, and demands that will arise as your project progresses.
Planning the project
The first step is to assess your current bathroom. Consider the size of the room, the color palette, and the existing fixtures.
Building the plan
After determining what you want for your bathroom, it is time to layout your plan. This includes materials, budgeting, timeline, constraints, and other important factors.
The final step is to move forward with the renovation. This includes gathering permits or hiring contractors, for example.
