Almost everyone dreams of living in luxury and bathrooms dreams are no different. What was once a purely functional room, bathrooms have now become an oasis in which to escape the stress of everyday life and enjoy hot baths, beauty treatments, and solitude in a restful environment. Below are some tips on how you can build your dream bathroom in 2018.
1. Consider Function
A bathroom is one of a home’s most-used rooms. Bathrooms take a lot of abuse because they are highly-functional spaces that must be used on a daily basis. For this reason, when creating your dream bathroom, make sure you choose the shower, tub, sink, and toilet with function in mind, and then move on to your decorative ideas.
2. Create a Diagram
Before you begin your bathroom remodel project, keep plumbing considerations in mind, as they will greatly impact where you place your bathtub, toilet, and shower. Walking the space with your professional contractor when making the floor plan is wise. This will ensure a successful outcome, and keep the construction time to a minimum.
3. Select a Theme
Consider whether you want your dream bathroom to be casual or formal and whether you prefer neutral colors or bold patterns and prints. A black and white theme works well for formal bathrooms, while pastels and neutrals are perfect for casual interiors.
Sandy beach colors and blues are often used to create a water theme. Other popular motifs in this category include lighthouses, fish, and seashells. This theme can add an extra level of relaxation to the room.
You can also choose a motif that relates to the area where you live, or a particular architectural style. For example, if you find New England cottage or Victorian themes appealing, show your contractor pictures of the style and ask for a recommendation concerning cabinets, vanities, and sinks.
Asian or Bohemian styles may appeal to you as well. Such themes have increased in popularity over the past several years due to the fun and interesting touch they add to a bathroom.
Even small details concerning your intended decor are important to discuss with your contractor. This will help ensure the basic framework of the new bathroom lends itself well to your preferred style.
4. Use Fixtures to Add Flair
When completing one day remodels, remember to discuss and decide on fixtures. Although they are sometimes overlooked and seen as insignificant, fixtures go a long way toward enhancing the style of your new bathroom.
Metal fixtures are quite popular, with gold being the newest trend for faucets, handles, and trim.
5. Add Greenery
Don’t forget to add a botanical touch when completing your bathroom remodel. Most greenery is asymmetrical, so when placed in a bathroom, they can help offset the room’s straight lines and right angles. This ultimately adds a beautiful, soft touch.
6. Plan for Luxurious Touches
Consider other luxurious touches you can add to the bathroom, such as built-in linen storage, a steam room, or a seat in the shower. The possibilities are endless!
Regardless of the style or theme you choose when completing your bathroom remodel, it’s guaranteed that updating this much-used space will add beauty and value to your home. Contact us to start planning your dream bathroom.
