Considering a bathroom remodel this year? You’re not the only one! After a stressful year, many of us are looking for ways to create our very own at-home oasis. To help you get started, we’ve put together a list of features to consider when designing your dream bathroom. Check them out below!

Plan an Efficient Layout

All great bathroom design starts with a plan, and more importantly, an efficient layout. Your bathroom’s layout will depend on various factors, including your budget, size of the space, and the features you want to have. The design will also be impacted by hidden elements like plumbing, water lines, and vent stacks. To create the most functional floor plan for your home, consider working with an experienced contractor like Homecare Inc.

Create a Spa-Like Shower and Bath Experience

Custom tile showers and freestanding tubs are two of the best ways to create a spa experience in your own home. Incorporate multiple spray heads into the shower and enclose it with frameless glass doors to show off beautiful tile work. A soaking tub is a perfect complement to a luxurious walk-in shower and rounds out that spa-like feel.

Use Color Strategically

One of the most powerful tools you have at your disposal when designing your dream bathroom is color. But don’t just think about paint! Materials also play a significant role in bathroom design. When thinking about the aesthetic you want to embody, consider tones and textures from cabinets, flooring, and tile.

Choose Dual-Purpose Flooring

When it comes to bathroom flooring, it’s important to consider an option that is just as functional as beautiful. In other words, bathroom flooring needs to be attractive and durable, slip-proof, and water-resistant. Ceramic floor tile and stone are two of the most luxurious choices, while vinyl plank or tiles tend to be more cost-effective and low maintenance. For an added touch, consider in-floor heating to keep your feet warm year-round!

Create a Thoughtful Lighting Plan

Whether getting ready for the day ahead and pampering yourself when the day is done, bathroom lighting is key. A good rule of thumb is to have wall-mounted lights on each side and above the mirror to illuminate your face and eliminate shadows. Ceiling mounted fixtures or a chandelier above the tub adds style and creates mood lighting, while enclosed showers will benefit from vapor-proof recessed lighting.

Showcase Your Style With Cabinetry

Bathroom cabinetry tends to get overlooked, but it definitely deserves more attention. Cabinetry not only adds style to your bathroom but creates necessary storage space for bathroom items like toiletries and towels. Like kitchen cabinets, you can choose from stock, semi-custom, and custom cabinets to find the option that best fits your budget and the overall design.
