3 Design Tips for Your New Bathroom

Remodeling your bathroom can be an extensive and also expensive project. This is especially true if you’re one of the four out of five homeowners choosing to replace major bathroom features during remodelings like showers, countertops, sinks, and more. Because of this, it’s more important than ever that you choose the right design for your bathroom so you can be happy with it for years to come. So to help you get your dream bathroom, here are a few design tips to keep in mind.


Mind the toilet: When your bathroom door is left open, do you want the first thing people see in your bathroom to be the toilet? Hopefully, your answer is no. So during your bathroom remodeling, be mindful of where you’re placing the toilet. While you want your bathroom to be as open as possible, putting the toilet front and center can be a big design mistake. So when you’re undergoing toilet, sink, and shower remodeling, make sure you’re placing the bathroom elements in appropriate places.


Think about height: When it comes to important bathroom elements, like towel bars, sinks, and mirrors, there is more that goes into placement than just putting them against the wall. One of the most important aspects to think about is the height of items in the bathroom. While there are no cut and dry rules for how high a towel bar should be hung or how tall a counter should be, it’s important to choose a height that is comfortable. So decide early on where you want to hang items and don’t start nailing things in place until you’re sure everything is in the right position.


Lighting matters: If you’re focusing on shower remodeling, lighting may not be high on your list of priorities. But just like in the rest of your house, lighting is important in the bathroom. This is especially true if people are going to be getting ready for the day in the bathroom. So you should consider layering your lighting. Having different levels of lighting, like task lighting and ambient lighting, can help add dimension and also functionality to a bathroom area.


Hopefully, these simple tips will be helpful in your remodeling plans. With the right design, you’ll soon have a new bathroom you’ll love.
