What to consider when designing a bathroom

If it’s your first time designing a home, congratulations, and even if you’re a seasoned pro, you’ll probably be able to find something helpful from this blog article too. No matter how much experience you have when it comes to designing a home, you can agree that the design of a bathroom is extremely important. After all, you do spend a good amount of time here between showering, getting ready, and well you know, you want to make sure that this space is comfortable and to your liking. In this blog post, we will be discussing some of the top aspects to consider when designing a bathroom.  


In order to create a bathroom that you love, you’re going to want to consider what type of layout that you want. You’re also going to want to consider how many people are going to be using this bathroom. Is it for the master bedroom? You’ll probably want to give yourself plenty of space, Jack and Jill styled sinks, and lots of open light. Is it for your children’s bathroom? Are they sharing? If it’s for children, you’ll want to make sure that they’re able to reach the sink and have plenty of room so they’re not bumping into each other. You get the idea, but consider all your options before you just settle for what your builders suggest. You’ll be spending time here, not them, so make sure that you have the final say.


Most of us spend the majority of our time getting ready in the bathroom, which means that you’re going to want the best lighting for that. Positioning your sinks, mirrors, and counter spaces where the best light is will make all the difference. The right lighting can allow you to apply your makeup more evenly, fix your hair, and even shave better. You always want to look your best, so give yourself the advantage of lighting. You’ll thank us later for this, we promise! 


This can go hand in hand with lighting since it can allow natural light into the space. We can all agree, sometimes natural light is the best lighting. It’s soft but still lets you see everything that you need to. However, if you’re looking to add windows into your bathroom make sure that they’re positioned strategically. First off, if you’re placing a window near your shower, make sure it’s at the appropriate height so that you’re not giving the entire neighborhood a free show. You also want to make sure that the lighting isn’t facing the wrong way so that you’re back lit when you’re getting ready. Of course, the sun does shift throughout the day but if you get ready early in the morning, placing a window that strategically lets in the morning light is your best option.


This isn’t the most exciting part of the design, but it is still important. When you’re figuring out what tapewear to use, this can either blend in or make a bold statement. With so many options that all have their own elements to them, you have to pick what’s best for you. Maybe you’re going for a more modern and sleek design or you’re wanting something bold? The color is also something that you’ll have to consider as well. It can be fun, but it can also be something that easily slips your mind. So, plan ahead. You don’t want to have to go with the cheapest and less durable option just because you didn’t budget enough time or money into it. 


When you’re considering the design of your bathroom, it’s important to pick out the best material for the wall and floor. Not only are you going to want to pick something that is aesthetically appealing, but you want to pick something that is durable and isn’t affected by moisture. This is where we come in.

Since you’ll be spending so much time in this space you want to make sure that it’s up to your standards and needs. While there are all the standard parts of a bathroom, it may be important for you to add some extra things. For example, you may want to add an extra medicine cabinet if both you and your spouse want more space for all your things. Perhaps you want a towel rack with a warmer? Do you have children who come into your bathroom space and want to add some extra cabinet space for their things? We say go for it. Adding niche pieces to your bathroom can not only add a personal touch on your bathroom but it can make it more efficient too.
