Asking yourself some key bathroom planning questions will define the scope of your project, give you a better vision of the end product, and keep you within cost parameters. Bathroom remodeling can be a daunting task for any homeowner to undertake without professional help and guidance along the way; however it does not have to be that way!
There are many resources available to help homeowners plan their bathroom remodels and avoid costly mistakes (and some not-so-obvious ones) that can end up costing you more in the long run than if you had hired a professional from the start to guide you through the process and help you make the best choices for your home and budget from the beginning to the end.
For many homeowners the bathroom is one room in the house that receives the least amount of attention when it comes to design or decorating – often the room is just an afterthought when a home is being built or a renovation is taking place in the home. But it doesn’t have to be this way!! The bathroom is one of the most used rooms in any home so it is important to create a space that is functional as well as beautiful and functional for you as an individual is important too.
A well-designed master bathroom should :
* Be a comfortable place to get ready for the day – whether that means getting ready for work in the morning or just relaxing in the evening after a hard day’s work a well designed master bath should be comfortable and inviting to you.
* Have enough storage space for all of your personal items such as towels toiletries etc.
* Have a vanity area with ample counter space to accommodate your morning routine as well as a makeup station and/or sitting area where you can sit and relax / read a magazine while getting ready.
* Provide ample lighting throughout the room so that you can easily see what you are doing in the morning and evening when you are preparing for the day ahead and also for evening relaxation as well.
* Keep in mind as you design and remodel your bathroom that you are designing this space for YOU…so think about what your needs are and what you would like to see in your new bath and then plan accordingly with your budget in mind too..
