Bathroom RemodelingUntil recently, master bathrooms weren't all that different from hall baths. In fact, his-and-her sinks were considered a major luxury. These days, our clients design master bathroom remodeling projects worthy of a professional day spa. From radiant floor heating to Jacuzzi baths and luxurious steam rooms, your master bathroom can serve as a relaxing sanctuary, in addition to place to get ready for your daily routine.

The following tips will help you as move through your master bathroom remodeling process.

  1. Get a feel for your style. In most cases, the master bathroom is a relatively open space so you want your design to flow. Start visiting bathroom show rooms and consult with professional designers to get an idea of what your style is. In most cases, the master bath remodel is designed for two. If you and your partner have different design styles, that's okay. We can work to create a transitional design that will seamlessly blend both tastes.

  2. Schedule an appointment for a consultation. Do take advantage of the free consultations offered by most interior design and build professionals. Unless you are an experienced home remodeler, there may be possibilities you haven't even considered. In addition to giving you great ideas, or warning you about potential complications or hurdles with your own plans, you will have the opportunity to get to know them and determine which professionals you want to work with.

  3. Small space considerations. If you have a smaller bathroom space, a smart layout is the key to making it as spacious, functional, and attractive as possible. For example, rather than installing a Jacuzzi tub with a deck, you can install a 5-foot freestanding tub. This alternative saves square footage and still give you a wonderful way to unwind in a warm, relaxing environment. Don't have room for his and her sinks? Look for a long sink that accommodates two faucets so you can still stand side-by-side with access to your own water when you need it.

  4. Large space considerations. If you have a large space to work with, or you are open to adding on, the master bathroom remodeling world is your oyster. Check out this HGTV article on Choosing a Bathroom Layout to get some ideas for your design.

  5. Lighting. Don't neglect the importance of a good lighting design. Bathrooms benefit from a blend of lighting options, including skylights or windows for natural light, as well as overhead fixtures for nighttime utility lighting. Sconces provide appropriate lighting around vanity mirrors and near the bath. Include dimmers so you can control the brightness factor and create ambiance when desired.

Remember that this may be the only space in the house where you can justifiably lock yourself in! To that cause, go luxurious on the details - a gorgeous chandelier over the bath, warming drawers for towels, a fireplace - be decadent!
