The bathroom is a sanctuary in any home, providing comfort after a long day of work or play. It is a place to pamper and relax in, which makes bathrooms one of the key buying points for any homeowner.
When homeowners embark on remodeling their home, the bathroom is generally the first place they begin. From the bathroom fixtures to upgrading the floor or the shower, remodeling the bathroom can be one of the more difficult, but rewarding projects within the home.
When it comes to a luxury remodel of a bathroom, it is important to keep the following things in mind, especially as you start lining up contractors for the remodeling work. Professionals such as Signature Kitchen & Bath are here to help you as you traverse the remodeling world in search of the perfect bathroom.
Design elements are numerous in a luxury bathroom, including lighting, hardware, cabinetry, shower and tub combinations, flooring, paint, vanities, among others. Because a luxury bathroom always has a theme, it is important to begin with one design element and build around it.
Say, for example, you wish to install a free-standing tub in your bathroom. This is on-trend right now, and many remodeled bathrooms featuring this element combine it with natural materials and soft lighting. Or perhaps you wish to incorporate hardwood or concrete floors, making for a dark, exotic bathroom with stone and glass accessories.
Whatever design element you decide to focus on, make sure that it is the most important element to you. Most people have one feature they must have in their bathroom, and it is common to build the bathroom around it, ensuring that the entire bathroom falls in line with that element for a well-rounded design.
The size of your bathroom is not so much important as the layout. If you have a large bathroom, but the layout does not mesh well with your needs, then the bathroom space is wasted. If you have a small bathroom with great design but not enough storage, then utilizing the space is key.
Most bathrooms have three key fixtures — the sink, the shower or tub, and the toilet. As long as you and your contractor can find a way to design a layout that incorporates all three, you will be able to find a layout that works for you.
In your new bathroom, you may want to add extra features, like a separate vanity or a free-standing rainfall shower. You may also want to think about extra cabinets for your belongings. When the general draft of the layout is done, you can look over it with your contractor and decide if there is room to input the extra features.
