1. Choose the Shower and Tub First
The layout of your bathroom begins and ends with the configuration and placement of your shower and tub. Start by deciding if you’d prefer to have both a tub and shower or just one.
Do you prefer a deep soak bathtub? Today’s modern tubs come in deeper, narrower options that take up less floor space. Or perhaps you’d prefer a luxurious walk-in shower.
You’ll also need to think about whether you’ll be installing a bench and what type of bathtub or shower storage niche you’d prefer.
2. Select a Shower Tile
Next, you’ll need to choose a tile for the floor and walls of your shower. You’ll want to select your shower tile as early as possible in the design planning process if you’re considering any type of specialty tile.
Don’t forget to select an accent tile for your shower and backsplash.
3. Pick the Right Flooring
Develop a palette and decide what type of flooring will look best with your bathroom walls and cabinets. With bathroom flooring, you’ll need to install something durable and thick that’s also waterproof.
If you love the look of natural wood, many modern homes are using engineered wood options to replicate wood without compromising durability. On the other hand, marble and natural stone floors can be cool, making it a less comfortable choice for bare feet on a winter day.
4. Decide On a Vanity Design
Decide if you prefer a double vanity or a single vanity and choose your bathroom faucet or faucets. You’ll also want to decide if you prefer a drop-in sink, vessel sink, or pedestal sink and then choose a material for your sink.
5. Enhance the Room With the Right Lighting
Lighting should be part of your bathroom remodel checklists. What type of light will be more fitting for my bathroom? This is a question you may need to answer.
If making the right selections becomes a headache, you can easily reach out to one of our bathroom design experts for an expert recommendation. We often recommend going for LED, fluorescent or halogen light to give your room that feels of natural bright light.
With any of the lights listed above, you can comfortably go about your grooming business without needing extra light.
6. Consider Adding a New Window
If your bathroom looks smaller than normal or you’re looking for a way to increase natural lighting, adding a new window can help sort this out. Consider adding a small window that lets natural light into your bathroom to give it a natural feel.
Also, adding an extra window can enhance the ventilation in your bathroom, reducing dampness and moisture.
7. Be Sure to Add Ample Storage
If you have more space in your bathroom, consider adding storage. Bathroom storage is a good addition to any bathroom as long as you choose the right spot for it. Storage helps to collect your bathroom items in one place and keep your bathroom more organized and classy.
Well-designed bathroom storage can help you separate your things like your soaps, clean towels from dirty ones, and other toiletries.
8. Choose a Stylish Bath Mat & Accessories
A bath mat is a fantastic addition to the bathroom’s design and can be the starting point for your theme with the rest of your bathroom accessories like towels, curtains, etc. If you’re tired of the standard mats, choose a bamboo bath mat to give the room a more natural appearance.
Adding a bath mat also gives you a non-slip surface to step on after a bath or shower. Additionally, bathroom mats absorb excess moisture or splashes, keeping floors dry, clean, and mildew-free. Bathroom mats are essential since they improve the cleanliness of your environment.
