The master bath. Every home has one and understanding how to make it work for you can be a challenge. Having the knowledge of what you want and need is the vital to accomplishing the perfect space. Remodeling a bathroom stems from a place of displeasure with the current design. The desire for a different design is usually the key driver in the decision to update. Creating a plan of attack before starting the demolition will help to make great strides towards achieving the master bath of your dreams.
Make a pros-and-cons list of your current master bathroom. Include what you like and do not like about the fixtures, colors, layout and overall feel of the space. Start to look around the current space and take inventory of what you would like to stay and what pieces need to be replaced or removed. If you are on a tight budget, new window treatments or a coat of paint on the existing cabinets can save money while drastically changing the look of the bathroom.
Storage for toiletries, hair care products, cleaning supplies, etc. is most likely a necessity. De-cluttering the bathroom is a great start to developing an organized bathroom that will work with you and your family. Planning the layout of the room to include much-needed storage will put your mind at ease when it comes time to move your products back into the space. Removing unwanted items assists in the organization of the new space and creates a chaos-free environment in which to relax at the end of a long day.
A design scheme is very important to the overall look and feel of the space. Choosing a design that is cohesive to the surrounding areas of the home will create a nice flow between each room. Since most master bathrooms are located adjacent to the master bedroom, continue the bedroom design into the bathroom. Having a master bathroom with traditional fixtures en suite to a contemporary bedroom will create a feeling of confusion. Staying within the design style and color family will allow for a vast array of options that will not hurt the eyes.
Since the master bathroom is a private area of the home meant for very few people, making the space a relaxing and luxurious one is ideal. Having a soaking tub or a rainfall shower head are the little extras that make the space so inviting. Double sinks provide more room for couples that want to customize their individual side with personal essentials. Also, mood lighting such as a chandelier or pendant lighting can take the room from functional to spa-like with the flip of a switch.
All of these attributes provide the makings of a calm, relaxing retreat in the center of your home. Once you gather your plans and know which essentials are required for your new space, remodeling the master bathroom will be a breeze.
