Designing an ideal bathroom can be a challenge, especially when you consider the varying intricacies involved in the process, from planning to execution; that said, there are a few steps that you can take to guarantee that the end result is one that meets not only your needs but also your expectations. In this article, we will detail a few of the primary tenets for achieving optimal results and making your bathroom remodel/built-out the envy of the neighborhood.
DESIGN YOUR BATHROOM THE PROPER WAY
Whether you’re starting with a new build or remodeling an existing bathroom, it is important to incorporate an efficient/aesthetic flow within the room. What does this mean, exactly? Well, it means that when you open your bathroom door, the first thing that should be in your line of view is something that is pleasing to the eye. For example, your eyes should be meet with a beautiful vanity or walk-in shower as you enter the room. These are things that should be taken into consideration when creating the floor plan and should be decided upon well before moving on to other aspects of the bathroom remodel/build-out.
One of the things that get routinely forgotten when it comes to any home improvement project is storage, especially when it comes to designing a perfect bathroom. But storage is critical, and you should allocate some time in planning that part of the renovation or build. To that end, you may want to consider installing stylish shelves that complement your bathroom cabinets; this provides the perfect amalgamation of exposed and concealed storage space. You may also want to take cues from Scandinavian built bathrooms, which are highly regarded for their efficient storage design concepts that are as functional as they are timeless.
Let’s face it, deciding on a color for your bathroom can be a difficult task, but it is an important one. This can be an opportunity to express your unique style by choosing unconventional patches of color that really brings the room to life. The same can also be said for choosing flooring tiles; colorful tiles can make a bathroom feel so much more inviting and less monochromatic when compared to most bathrooms today.
So why is there such a huge emphasis on color, anyway? Well color-matching has become quite a trend for 2018, and therefore, many homeowners are keen on matching paint with tiles and furniture in their bathroom and, more importantly, they are seeking out vibrant colors that add a two-dimensional look, so consider employing color swatches to help you narrow down your choices.
As homeowners, we are encouraged to always maximize the space in our homes; this is a maxim that also applies to bathroom space. You don’t want to forgo decorating potential by neglecting any open spaces in your bathroom; instead, use them as placeholders for artificial plants or miniature shelves to display toiletries and other essentials. Taking a few moments to plan, can mean the difference between a basic bathroom and something that commands attention. Contact us today!
