Design Concepts for Bathroom Remodeling

Posted by Daniel Mizrahi on Friday, November 20, 2015

If you’re thinking about some bathroom upgrades, it can be challenging to keep up with the new trends and updated designs available to you. As you explore bathroom remodeling ideas, check out our list of design concepts that will help you get the brag-worthy bathroom you’ve always wanted.

Store It Up

Whether you have a spacious master bathroom, or you want to renovate a small bathroom, storage doesn’t have to just be a bathroom necessity; it can also add to the aesthetic of your bathroom and is a great place to start a bathroom redesign. Going up instead of out by utilizing vertical space is a practical way to make the most of your square footage. There are dozens of ways to think “up”: traditional cabinetry, open shelving, floating shelves, or repurposing furniture originally intended for another room (bookshelves or antique dressers).

Versatile Tile

Even if you have a spacious bathroom suite (and especially if you don’t), the bathroom is typically one of the smallest rooms in the house. The more people share it with others while getting ready in the morning, the smaller it seems. A multifunctional solution is to tile your walls in white. Clean white always brightens and enlarges a room. Plus, tile is easier to clean than a painted or wallpapered wall, and if you’re busy, have kids, or are a neat freak (or all three), being able to return to sparkling walls with a quick spray clean is an upgrade you won’t regret.

Less is More

Especially when you’re talking about less waste and more money when it’s time to pay your water bill. From the bathtub to the toilet to the sink, water useage can really drain your budget. Luckily, there are now ways to reduce your water usage without forcing yourself to take a 30 second shower. Installing a low-flow toilet, a hands-free faucet, or a smart shower (which manages water droplet size, spray, and speed to save on water) allows you to kick up your feet and relax without having to worry about your carbon footprint or your bottom line.

Tear Down the Walls

Removing (or at least altering) the standard bathtub and shower combination can make your bathroom more open, accessible, and resale-friendly. A curbless or no-threshold shower is easy to clean and creates a sense of flow within your bathroom. Better yet, it creates an accessible space. This is worth considering if you plan to age in your home, have someone at home who would already benefit from a curbless shower, or having an ADA compliant bathroom to increase resale value.
