Design a Layout
Create a sketch of your desired layout, including the toilet, sink and countertop and shower. Designate an area for storage if needed. Take into consideration the location of mechanical and electrical features, such as plumbing pipes, outlets and light switches. Although these can all be relocated, such changes can be costly and often unnecessary. Always check your local building codes before making any final decisions.
Choose a Style
Determine factors such as countertops, fixtures, cabinets and colors based on your decorating style. For instance, choose dark wooden cabinets and travertine tile flooring for a traditional look or brushed nickel fixtures with a glass tub surround for a more contemporary design. Lighting also plays an important role in the overall appearance of a room.
Always keep a reasonable budget in mind when remodeling any room of the house. If cost is an important factor, take the time to shop around to compare prices or consider other money-saving ideas, such as visiting a local stone yard to view affordable granite countertop remnants.
