Bathroom Remodel Design First Steps
The best bathrooms are a combination of form and function. Of course, you want your bathroom to beautiful but, even more importantly, you want it to work for your lifestyle. Here are the top elements to consider when designing your bathroom.
1. Style of Home
Before beginning a remodel or even making any purchases, decide on what style will best complement your home. Is your home modern? Traditional? Opulent? Once you’ve figured out your style, you can begin planning a design.
2. Available Area
The size of the area you have to work with is another key consideration when designing your space. If your bathroom is small, that will limit what you can do and will dictate everything from the size of your vanity to the style of your bath tub and shower.
Elements of a Great Bathroom Remodel
The four main elements to consider when designing a bathroom are: space, materials, lighting and a focal point. Let’s take a look at how you can make the most of each.
All of the best bathrooms feel large and luxurious. And you can achieve that no matter what your room size might be.
The key is to place the vanity, toilet, shower and bathtub in a way that is purposeful and flows well, creating positive space.
Mirrors are also your best friend for achieving a spacious look. Choosing a large mirror or several smaller ones will open up your room and break up your wall space.
Deciding what materials and textures you want in your bathroom is the next step. While your budget may partly determine what you can afford, it’s important to choose quality products that will last, saving you money in the long run. Opting for natural materials like hardwood and ceramic tiles will ensure you a high-quality finish without blowing your budget.
The right lighting is essential for any bathroom. Modern bathrooms look great with square ceiling lights and lighting bars while traditional rooms call for sconce or lantern-style lighting.
Placement is also key. Overhead lighting and lights atop your vanity mirrors allow you to customize the amount of light you need.
4. A Focal Point
Every room need one element that’s the main focus of the room. In a bathroom it can be just about anything. You can paint one wall a different color or you choose to put the focus on a fabulous tile shower or a luxury claw-foot bath tub. Whatever focal point you choose, play it up so that the eye is immediately drawn there upon entering the room.
