Tips For Planning Your Bathroom Redesign

Posted October 26, 2016

When it’s time to remodel a bathroom, a big opportunity is presented to the homeowner. At the same time, it can be an overwhelming situation. Many people realize that they have no idea what goes into redoing a bathroom. If you want to have control over the design, you need to have some knowledge. Locals embarking on a bathroom remodeling project in Norfolk, VA should consider these design tips.

One of the most basic parts of bathroom design is to avoid making the toilet the first thing that is seen when the door is opened. It’s just good manners to avoid making everyone look at it whenever they pass by. There are far more aesthetically pleasing options to go with. Instead, make the sink and the counter or the shower the focal point. Another option is to install some sort of barrier between the door and the toilet.

Since this is where your daily hygiene routine is done, you want good lighting in your bathroom. It helps to plan out the kind of lighting you want beforehand. The goal should be to create layered illumination so that no drastic shadows are cast. A bathroom requires lighting that is somewhat soft and ambient while still clearly illuminating the space.

Another smart move is to research what the typical measurements of a bathroom are. Knowing how much space a toilet or bathtub requires will make planning the layout easier. You can also make more informed decisions as the remodel is in progress.

Your bathroom is a small but important space in the house. At some point in their lives, most local homeowners will encounter the need for a bathroom remodeling in Norfolk, VA. The process becomes much easier if you answer some questions before going in. When you do your homework and pay attention to these tips, bringing your design to fruition will be much more successful.
