Why You Need To Do Extra Planning When Remodeling Your Bathroom

Aug 17, 2007
It's the room where we spend some of the most important time of the day. We prepare ourselves there in the morning, we rest there in the middle of the day, and we unwind there at night. Yet the bathroom receives little attention when individuals are remodeling or building their homes. Have you ever seen a turquoise toilet? How about a corner tub or a shower for two? All of these things exist, and yet many of us do not even know about the boundless options available when designing our own shower houses. So whether you are looking to give your home a facelift or you're building a brand new house, consider the following advice to make your throne room into a real palace.

Do not disregard the importance of the bathroom. You want to consider its importance and exactly how you want it designed when considering your home. In fact, you may want to even consider hiring an interior designer. As one myself, I have seen how just the right bathroom design at just the right time can literally make an entire floor complete. A professional designer will give you the ideas that you'll need for a great, memorable room.

Bathroom design scares most people because of the room's lack of mutability. You can't move the fixtures once they're in unless you want to unload your wallet to put your tub in the corner instead of on the east wall. And maybe the move will be worth the expense, but regardless, consider the stationary quality of fixtures when designing your bathroom.

Because of the permanency of the bathroom's design, consider it last when designing your home. You'll want to focus your attention and energy on the rest of the home first so you can give the bathroom concentrated effort. It deserves your full attention, because again, the decisions made about this room stick around for a long time.

As stated earlier, the advice of a designer may help you immensely. Many people design their homes with no problem, until they come to the bathroom and a designer's advice will give you options that never crossed your mind before. Remember, these professionals have seen dozens and possibly hundreds of bathroom designs. They've seen what has worked and what hasn't, and they know how to make a bathroom that will top off a floor and hopefully a home.

Do not be afraid of bathroom design. Thousands of options exist from sinks, to faucets, to tubs. Your mind will swim with concepts and possibilities, and that's before you even have a specific design down. Trips to the fixture department will bring you to tears because of the innumerable options. So spend time on your design. You will not regret doing so.
