Bathroom Remodeling Design

Bathroom remodeling design plans can come from many places. Many of us see examples of things we like on a daily basis but don't take the time to make special note of them because we are not currently doing any bathroom remodeling. So when it comes time for remodeling your bathroom you are not quite sure what design choices to go with. But, by doing a little homework before you begin the project you can find the right bathroom remodeling design that works for you. The following are some things you can do to discover your ideal bathroom remodeling design.

Create a Scrapbook

Our memory is not always the most reliable tool to use when compiling ideas. And, it is difficult to share examples with other people like your contractor if all of your thoughts are simply hidden in your memory. So, the next time you see an example of a bathroom remodeling design that you like, take a lot of pictures. These photos can be added to a scrapbook to help you narrow down your selection or even find inspiration for a brand new design. And, you can then share your final choices with your contractor by showing them the examples in the scrapbook that you have created.

Another excellent resource for master bathroom remodeling examples is in home decorating magazines. While flipping through the pages of a magazine you may come across a tile pattern you really like or a tub enclosure that immediately catches your eye. When you see something that you really like, simply tear out the page and add it to your scrapbook. As you continue to look in more magazines, your preferences may evolve and you may realize that you find something that you like better than the examples that you first put in the scrapbook when you began.

A popular place to get bathroom remodeling design plans from is on television design shows. Because you can't add a television show to your scrapbook, you will need to take notes and write down any information on paint colors, techniques or fixtures that you would like to use. If they do not give specific information, like paint color, during the show they are likely to list it on the credits at the end of the show. Or, you may be able to find the information you are seeking by checking out the website for the show. If you email the staff at the show for the product information that you are looking for, make sure to include and what episode you saw the product on.

Special Lighting

A special feature often overlooked in bathroom remodeling design plans is lighting. If you are installing a deep soaker tub with jets, it would be complimented with some soft track lighting to create a relaxing atmosphere. For larger spaces a chandelier might be appropriate. And, vanity lighting over the sink is an important aspect in any bathroom. Whatever your lighting goals and needs, discuss them with your contractor to create lighting design that you will love.

A Skilled Contractor

Your bathroom remodeling design can be as simple as replacing the tile flooring and giving the walls a fresh coat of paint. Or it could be a complete remodel of your bathroom including replacing the bathtub, sink, toilet, flooring, and storage as well. Whether the job is big or small, a contractor can be hired to handle the entire job. Because they are an expert in bathroom remodeling, your contractor is able to get the job done quickly and with a level of excellence that is simply not seen in "do in yourself" projects.

An experienced contractor will be able to use your preferences as a guide to create a bathroom remodeling design that exceeds your expectations. Before they begin the project, ask to see design sketches and material samples to be sure that you and your contractor are on the same page. If you have any questions after reviewing the design sketches and samples make sure to ask them at this point. It is much easier to resolve an issue before a remodeling project begins than after the fact. Open communication is key to a successful relationship with your contractor.

When you have compiled your scrapbook and know the amount of money that you are able to devote toward the cost of the remodeling project, it is time to settle on the right contractor to handle the job.
