Deciding upon a style and theme you’d like to achieve is a necessary first step before launching a new design project for your bathroom. Initially, you can focus on the three basic types of bathrooms that are often found in homes; that is, the master, guest and half bathroom.
The master bathrooms is always directly associated to the master bedroom. It represents the general theme of the master bedroom in terms of theme, style and comfort level. Thus, designing a master bathroom that is different from the bedroom might be a little too drastic. Additionally, master bathrooms should cater to the needs of the occupants of the master bedroom as best as possible, since comfort is an essential aspect of the overall design.
Further, the guest bathroom is most often located close to the guest bedroom or found as a standalone bathroom in the home’s hallway. In the case of free-standing bathrooms, as they don’t necessarily need to follow a certain theme, you can easily incorporate elements of your own character.
Half bathrooms are usually simply decorative, containing only the necessities. The half bathroom can be decorated with special artwork, accessorized with trinkets and other items that can be used as interesting touches to the room.
Today’s Necessities: Layout & Storage
Layout and storage space are definitely the two most important aspects of your bathroom redesign to consider. Layout can increase the resell value of your home if you can manage to create a space that appeals today’s buyers. For instance, you might want to be creative and consider shower and bathtub combinations, which will give your home the kind of appeal the masses might be looking for. On that note, think about what would be the easiest to work with in the future.
Storage space is equally important, with this becoming one of the main reasons people choose to redecorate. Vanities are becoming more popular due to their storage capabilities. Using bathroom space efficiently can easily improve your home’s storage potential in no-time.
