5 Beautiful Features To Consider When Remodeling Your Bathroom

Remodeling a bathroom can not only be expensive and time-consuming, but homeowners often face a variety of design decisions to make before and after beginning a bathroom remodel project. Below, we’re sharing 5 of our favorite bathroom design features to consider before taking on your remodeling project.

Beautiful Lighting

Bathroom remodeling pros agree that the proper lighting can make or break a bathroom remodeling project. Decorative sconces around vanity mirrors, back-lit mirrors, skylights over the shower, and statement chandeliers are all important features to consider when remodeling your bathroom. Build light fixtures into your designs before you begin your remodel. Lighting is especially important around counter space and overhead shower areas. Pro Tip: Don’t forget dimmer switches for those new fixtures.

A Statement Backsplash

Make your new bathroom shine with an impactful vanity backsplash. Patterned tiles (think chevron, geometric, and more) to create a dreamy space that never has to be re-painted and will create visual interest and an elegant touch in your new space. This is an especially important feature if you’re installing a neutral or natural wood tone cabinet/vanity.

Shower Controls Near the Entry

Contrary to how many older showers have been designed, it’s better for everyone to move your shower controls to the entrance of the shower when planning out the design for a new bathroom. This will add a little extra expense to the renovation, but will be well worth it. Remember, nobody likes a cold spray of water in their face first thing in the morning! Pro Tip- Only buy quality plumbing fixtures. This is not the place to save money, as cheap, off-name brand fixtures often have plastic components inside them that wear out over time, costing you more in the long run when they need to be replaced or cause unexpected leaks.

Add a Linen Closet

Don’t forget to consider how much space you’ll need for towels, bathroom accessories, toiletry items and more. A properly designed linen closet inside your bathroom will keep the space organized and clutter free for years to come, ensuring your new bathroom remains the peaceful retreat you initially envisioned. Consider integrating the linen closet with the vanity to save on space.

Consider a Slab Shower Surround

Avoid scrubbing grout and give your new shower a ‘statement wall’ appearance by using a stone slab such as marble, granite, dolomite, quartz and more to make your shower surround pop! This simple alternative to tiling can add a dramatic look and reduce long-term maintenance on your shower walls.
