8 Simple Bathroom Design Tips

You might be building a new home and designing the bathroom of your dreams or maybe you’re just remodeling and adding a new bathroom or changing an existing. In any case, you have a certain amount of room to work with. Here are some ideas we’ve come up with to help you in this process.

1. Make a list of everything you absolutely need in your bathroom, the obvious are the toilet, a sink if its going to be a full bathroom are you going to want a shower & bath combo or a standing shower?

2. Next comes any items you would like to include. Most people want a cabinet under the sink, for extra storage of miscellaneous items that will be used in the bathroom, toilet paper, shampoo, mouth was, etc. Figure out if you will be adding a mirror over the sink that either does or does not have a medicine chest. Lighting is very important natural or via a light bulb, make sure you have plenty of lighting coming into the room. A fan is ideal as it can be helpful for keeping moisture out which helps to prevent mold.

3. If you are feeling uncomfortable and unsure if you are doing this correctly, you might want to consider seeking the professional help of an interior designer. Now if you feel you are up for the challenge, read on.

4. Space is important, so measure your bathroom well, that means more than once just so you can be sure of exactly how much room you have to work with. Measure your bathroom well, this means at least two times. Choose items that you think you’d like in your bathroom and get the measurements. Create a layout to scale or as best as you can, you can also cut out papers to the size of the item and place it where you would want that item to go, this will be a good way to see if things fit in the bathroom. Don’t forget to leave space between things!bathlayout

5. Now if everything looks like its going to flow and work in the given space you have, there are a few more things to consider; You might be limited by your plumbing or electrical wiring. Window placement makes a difference, too, unless you have no problem about showering in front of a window and giving the neighbors a show.

6. If nothing seems to fit on your first go, play with the design change the layout a bit and see if you can come up with a way to be more efficient with the space you have while still enjoying your design. If your concern is storage space, adding some shelves to your wall will certainly help with that

7. You’ve tried everything and have flipped your design upside down and inside out and you still cant find any room, you’ll have to decide on what things what you can do without. For example, using a pedestal style sink or a wall mount sink can take up less space than a full size cabinet and is ideal for a small bathroom.

    I want to get my bathroom all designed. It makes sense that I would want to decide things like whether I want to have a shower and bath combo! I feel like a standalone shower is a lot nicer looking, so I’ll probably go with that.

    I totally agree with you in that it is important to remember that you need to measure your space carefully when trying to change the interior design. It is always a good idea to remember that doing this can help you avoid spending money on furniture that is too big for your space. Personally, I would also want to consult with a professional in order to make the plans I need to avoid overspending.
